97 Avalon CD options?

05-13-2006, 12:21 PM
I have the standard factory cassette radio, with external amp and 6 speakers in my 97 Avalon XLS.

Was there a factory in-dash head unit with a CD player, or a factory add-on in-dash CD player for this combination (that also uses the standard amp)? If so, any idea where to get one for a decent price, or what exactly I should look for?

The amp and speakers are working fine, so there is no real need to replace them, but I would like to add the ability to play CD's (without having to use an FM or cassette adapter and a portable CD/DAP player - I already have these).

If anyone knows how to modify the existing system to add a line-in, that might also be a useful alternative.
