Isbrodsky, Maybe you should wait and go to Canopener or other Airstream event, and see and listen to what others have done to their trailers. The younger generation is up on latest technology. I still have the cassette player in my trailer

Sound

Removed the factory installed TV and replaced it with a Samsung 40 inch 4K unit. Great picture. I recently installed a Bose Solo 5 sound bar directly under the TV. The sound is great and the ability to bluetooth connect with my iPhone to play music is a huge bonus. Only drawback is that the Solo 5 does not have HDMI capability. If it had HDMI, I could have used the smaller Samsung remote which would have powered on the TV and Solo at the same time. The Bose remote is a learning remote and will control all the functions of the TV, but it requires that you use one button to power on the TV and another for the sound bar. It works well. Since there is only 1 120v plug-in behind the TV, I'm going to change out the single for a double and then plug the Solo in behind the TV and attach the power brick to the back of the TV for a clean looking install.

At some point, I'm going to replace the weak Clarion AM/FM radio with a touch screen unit. I've been eyeing a JVC unit, but will wait to see what the latest will be coming out from 2017 Consumer Electronic Show in Las vegas. Rumor has it, hope, hope, hope, that Audiovox will bring back their 12volt BlueRay DVD player and I'll remove the 120v AC Samsung BlueRay player to save space and power when boon docking.

I am going to try the iLive Sound Bar; the Bose is too expensive for a solution I may not like. I could replace the TV and the head unit for the Bose price. I will try to mount the iLive to the TV bracket or the bottom of the TV.

Replace the SONY audio receiver? Help

I just ordered one of these puppies to replace my 2008 Sony DVD head unit.... (pioneer avh-x3800bhs).
Also going to upgrade the stock speakers with some Polk audio 6.5" full range units as well....

Full 6.2" touch screen with Bluetooth, XM and HD radio support which will be nice. Supports aux audio input from the tv and composite video output to the tv using existing RCA cables. Also has subwoofer pre-outputs. So plug and play with the existing cabling in my 2008 international. Opted against the larger 7" screen as it is motorized to provide access to the DVD slot - figured it would be one less thing to break while bouncing down the road.

Also ordered a bypass signaling unit to enable all functions without a handbrake wired into the system and double DIN frame that I'll set in the existing overhead bin enclosure after I enlarge the current single DIN opening.

I'll post a thread to document the install. Should be pretty straight forward... I'm looking forward to cleaning up the rats nest of wires associated with the current arrangement.

Replace the SONY audio receiver? Help

Oops, just discovered a problem with the remotes with this combination

When entering 6 on the Samsung TV remote, the sound bar switches to a different input. When entering 7 on the TV remote, it toggles the power on the sound bar.

Strange that the sound bar power toggle button does not change the TV channel to 6

Have to retract my recommendation for the iLive sound bar at this time

I did the Bose Solo5 over the TV and used the HD optical output on the TV to the Bose. Worth every penny in sound and ease of use. It is so much better than the $10 speakers mounted in the ceiling. With Bluetooth who needs the cheap frustrating head unit.
