    Lots, straight from the factory.
    If you’re going that old school, you might as well install an 8 track. Available music selection will be about the same. :boink:

    I'm not sure if my 2019 does, I'll have to look. Maybe I'll blow the decade and a half of dust off of my collection??

    Old school would be installing an Gramaphone

    But if you can't find one then a record player under the glovebox will do

    What's a CD??? I've got over 4,000 songs on a mini USB stick that just stays in the slot.

    I have one burned CD-R sitting in my CD Player, but I prefer my Bluetooth music. If my Taco didn't come with a CD Player, I wouldn't miss it.

    Even tried the USB, but Bluetooth is still the winner for me.

    In most cases the oem head unit is not the problem, the speakers are!, replace those with some quality speakers and it's as if a new stereo. I come from the old school of Nakamichi,Mb Quart Q, Rockford Fosgate, JL, Pioneer, Focal...I still love Focal Speakers, Pioneer head units and JL Audio amps.

    cant agree with you. the units that toyota specs are garbage in-terms of processing audio signal and power output. The speakers are also bad paper 1 way of course you will get better range with aftermarket but its only 1 piece of the puzzle and full potential of speakers cant be realized by being pushed with the 5w rms headunit.

    Your both right. Adding speakers is 1 piece of the puzzle, and adding a better head unit would be another.

    Myself, I just replaced the Tweeters and it made a world of difference. I then added an underseat 8" (powered) Sub. Didn't need to change out the door speakers, and now my system is more than quite capable, as is.

    Skip, does the SR come with Entune?
