The Pros:IPod controls are logical and easy, mirror using an iPod directly. Installation is very easy, requires just a general comfort with electrics. Remote gives good control of the unit, includes iPod controls.
The Cons:IPod connection causes some interference with the radio. No CD player built in, radio and USB ports only. Front panel button layout is a bit unusual, takes awhile to learn.
The Sony DSX-S100 is a digital media receiver / head unit lacking a CD mechanism, but instead outfitted with an integrated, mechanical Tune Tray compartment for securely storing an iPod or MP3 player. The front faceplate can be flipped down to reveal the tune tray, along with an included iPod adapter.

And featured on the faceplate is a simple 2-line, fluorescent LCD display and a front-positioned auxiliary input jack. Even though it doesn't support CDs, the DSX-S100 does include Satellite Radio / HD Radio compatibility (adapter required); built-in front, rear, and sub selectable pre-outs for customizing audio components; and MP3/WMA playback with Digital Music Plus (DM+), a custom Sony codec that supposedly enhances compressed audio quality.
