    Hey,

    My workplace recently aquired an old van, got it painted, wraped with vinyl, and we are now installing a nice sound system in the van.

    We already have a great amp, mixer (for the multiple inputs), and the speakers (polk audio).

    The system really rocks, and its great, but right now its in a mess on the floor of the van. We are planning on building a rackmountenclosure for all of the gear, but to do that we need...

    A rackmount CD player
    a rackmount AM/FM tuner

    these are what has been asked of me. I had found a combination unit and ordered it.. in August... and 2 weeks ago it hadnt arrived yet, so I canceled the order and got my money back.

    I now need to find either a different combination unit, two different units, or a different solution.

    I was thinking that a digital dj system might be nic to play around with... but marketing (not technical) people need to be able to operate the system and get music out of it.

    The solution needs to be more elegant than an iPod (which we will have a hookup, but for those without dmps we need something that can just play something). but I am out of ideas at this point, and need some creative input!

    Please let me know if you have any recomendations about these things!




    oh, and the reason I havent just ordered a rackmount cd player and a rackmount AM/FM is that there arnt a lot of rackmount tuners out there, and most rackmount cd players arnt desinged to be used in a moving enviroment.

    One option would be to just use a car CD player... though that would probably not last that well if it was subjected to high usage. I have used this http://www.tascam.com/details;8,23,10.html and I really like it, it can apparently play MP3 CDs too. It would mean that you had to get a separate radio, but if you can find a 1U one then that would probably only take up the same space as any combo unit
