Used Volvo CD-changer or suitable non-Volvo but compatible for 1996 850

Just happened to notice the price of a new CD-changer at the dealer
(OUCH!!!! ... sounds of testicular retraction)

I'm about to go digging around for a used changer but would like a
reasonable figure for one in fairly good condition.

Also, since I can only assume that my car's previous owner had a
Volvo-compatible one installed (got 50-foot length of wire with the
right connector hanging off of the ront kick panel and dangling under
the rear deck), I'll go for anything that's plug-compatible without
rewiring.

Interface converters exist for non-Volvo changers. Here's one for
Alpine - Volvo: http://www.discountcarstereo.com/detail.aspx?ID=304


Or, skip the changer and get an Ipod, and interface it to the stock
radio with these two items:
http://www.discountcarstereo.com/detail.aspx?ID=717
and the adapter cable:
http://www.discountcarstereo.com/detail.aspx?ID=779

Hide these items, run the Ipod connector to you armrest compartment or
glovebox and rip you CD collection into the Ipod.

If my changer ever fails, I'll probably take this option. No
reloading magazines..
