Popped into Aldi in Dartington Drive, Cardiff (Pentwyn) hoping to find some stock of this CD player at £39.99, and found that it had been reduced again to just £29.99!

Not yet installed it, but it seems to be well received, and you'd be hard pushed to find any car stereo for £30, let alone with USB, aux, SD card slot, Bluetooth and a 3 year warranty.

I got the last one at this store, but you might get lucky at your local.

ALDI offers tend to be store specific - but here's hoping
Thanks OP

I'd already checked another, more in hope than expectation, so don't bother trying the Melksham, Wilts store, there's no stock there.

Does anyone know if this would still work with the music controls on my steering wheel? I drive a grande punto

EDIT: Nevermind, no it doesnt.

No. Which ever stereo you buy, regardless of whether it is advertised as 'steering control compatible' or words to that effect, you'll need to buy an adapter which cost around £30+

I have one of these stereos by the way and it's great. The only downside is that you can't access different folders on the sd card you can only move forward/back by 1 or 10 files. So if you have more than a few albums it gets very frustrating trying to find the song you want to listen to which is made worse by it only showing the track numbers rather than names.

i have said model,you can put in three letters of artist to save scrolling,so for 30 quid its red hot

£30 is good, but it's brand equivalent will probably be about £150, which will be in my opinion ten times better.

I have two from Aldi, one for me and one for the wife....Great for streaming BT music, I do find the tuners pretty crap on them though compared to my previous stereos. Reception seems to skip in and out at times and can also have other channels jump in over the channel you are listening to for the odd second here and there.

Is there a product code so we can give 'em a ring?

I've got a model number, but the box has a bar code with no number so no luck there. Model number is 51486

you can select folders from the sd
ive done it, its on page 16 of the manual
under APS BUTTON it states

APS BUTTON
When playing USB Stick, SD Card or MP3 CD press the APS button repeatedly to
select TRACK SEARCH, DIRECTORY SEARCH or FIRST CHARACTER SEARCH mode.
In TRACK SEARCH mode the LCD will display TRK T 000 and %ash the biggest digit
that the MMC / SD Card, USB or MP3 disc contains. Rotate the dial to select the
number of the %ashing digit from 0-9. Then press SEL button to con!rm the
number and move on to the next digit. Repeat the process for the next two digits
and begin playing your song choice.
In DIRECTORY SEARCH MODE, the LCD will display the root folder directory, use the
VOL dial to navigate to your desired folder. Finally press the SEL button to play the
first track of the folder.

In FIRST CHARACTER SEARCH mode, the LCD will display A-, rotate the dial to select
the !le’s !rst character by the order of A-Z or 0-9. Then press >>| or <<| button to
select one !le. Use the SEL button to con!rm your selection.

also when fitting i didnt use the supplied leads as my car (vauxhall vecra) and same fittings but had 3 blocks
one for the power, one for the speakers and the other i think was for the steering wheel and dash controls and display
all i done was hack sawn the 3rd block away from the the other 2 (not cutting the wires just the block)
and the 2 connectors plugged straight in. only little problem is the radio wasnt holding its radio stations so just had to swap over the live and switchable live,

great stereo i paid £39.99 the other week,
have some heat OP (+11)
