My solution:

Couldn't be happier with it.  

Gonna be hard to find something that plays tapes too unless you play cds through a remote-mounted changer and tapes through the headunit.  The 
good news is that (at least judging by the latest Crutchfield catalog), headunit designs seem to be moving away from all the silver, multicolored 
flashy crap and back to more sober, clean designs.
