I'm in the market for an "in-dash" type stereo with CD player and a wired remote. Would be interested in what brands/models you may or may not recommend. Unit will be installed out of the weather with remote on deck.

Sounds like this is right up Cam's alley.
I'm sure he will help you, in the mean time, this topic was discussed in detail about two months ago. You may want to seach these threads, I think you'll find some of your questions have already been answered.

CD/Radio

As long as it is out of the weather, I'd go to Wally World and buy the cheapest in-dash unit I could get. I found one for under 30 dollars that had about 10-watts per channel and it blasts us out of the boat! I can hear Buffett singing "Let's get drunk and..." 3 docks away. (And I wonder why my neighbors don't seem friendly)

Clarion makes a couple of good units, like their M255 and M455 which can accept a wired remote. They have two remotes available... one has an LCD display, the other does not. They also have a limited functionality iPod adapter, that allows you to control the iPod from the deck controls. The reason i say it is limited functionality is that it only allows you to play from five specially named playlists... not full iPod functionality as found on the Alpine and Pioneer units.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Here's a link to Crutchfield and the wonderful world of wired remotes.
Remotes at Crutchfield.com

As you can see...a number of the marine stereos they sell can be used with wired remotes. Unfortunately...regular car stereos while cheaper do not come with wired remotes since it is kind of ridiculous. Many non-marine units do have wireless remotes but they are line of sight IR type which may be impractical for your purposes. Since your need sound limited, if you can use a wireless remote I would suggest this one which also adds a jack to make it ipod or other player compatible:
Pioneer DEH-1900MP CD receiver with MP3/WMA playback at Crutchfield.com

If you must have a wired unit:
Kenwood KDC-232MR Marine CD receiver at Crutchfield.com
This is a nice unit for $149 but the wired remote will set you back another $60 bucks!

Hope this helps. What are you going to do about speakers? Upstairs & Downstairs?

DAWG...I don't believe either of the Clarions are still current models but there may still be some around and they are good units.

Cam must have very high audio standards, since he said my Polk LSi9 home theater speakers "suck". < g >

Wouldn't matter to me.. I'm basically tone deaf... used to make my wife laugh... since she had a very good ear for music... Needless to say, I'm not all that picky about my speakers for my personal use.

Thanks to all who replied. I've done quite a bit of research today and I've actually changed my mind on the unit a time or two. Right now I'm leaning toward the JBL MR4 unit and may be pairing it with JBL speakers as well.
