Default Factory CD/Radio Apmlifier on a 2003 Saab 93

There is a way to replace the Factory CD/Radio Apmlifier on a 2003 Saab 93 ?.
I mean, I want to buy a 2-DIN unit and replace the original system because it does not read the mp3 files (CD-R/DVD-R)
There is a specific brand (Panasonic, Sony, etc.) I have to buy?.

Thanks,

Like most people would say is do a search.

08 models are different from 03. Your system like mine have to stay in for our car to run and uses fiber optic cables. Some people have installed an aftermarket deck where the cd player is and leave the factory deck alone.

Yep, do a search, however I have an 03' and took my cd-player out, replaced with my own... with a loop for the fibre optic system, hey presto... link the aux out of the new headunit to the aux in on the factory install... enable aux input and there you go. Slightly simplistic... but do a search on "Pugheaven" threads started and look for the head unit one, I've got details in there but in a rush!

Thanks,
The search will give you a more definitive answer, but in the iterim:

1.) The size is not double din - just under double din. You'd need to put a single-din unit in and construct a kit, or cut off the bottom of the heater vents and you can fit a double din.
2.) No specific brand, but you're looking at a lot of frustration due to the fibre optic system
3.) Your turn singals and system sounds will not work anymore (from what I understand)
