I did investigate the empeg. It's a nice player but it is missing a must-have
feature for me - wireless sync with the home music drive (this could certainly
be hacked in but I'm not sure I'm up to it). I also don't like
buying into a discontinued product, however nifty it might be.

I have seen new car players with wireless synchronization features, but they
all require proprietary Windows software to operate. Not ideal!
