Just upgraded stereos so this one has to go as i have no need for it. Its is in as mint shape as a cd player can be in. No scratches, could pass as new. Below is as much info as i could dig up on it. Never had any problems with it. I dont remember how much i paid for it but it was bought brand new. I dont know where to start at so maybe $200.00 shipped?

An impressive combination of brains and brawn, the DEH-P740MP is a high-end musical instrument. It features our MOSFET50 power chip and two great equalizing tools: a 3-band parametric Easy EQ and Sound Focus EQ, which allow you to shape music to fit your vehicle. It's XM Ready, and its flap face features a bright, easy-to-read Organic EL display. Four kinds of CD playback are possible: CD Audio, CD-RW, CD-R, and your MP3 CD's, and it's CD-changer-ready. The DEH-P740 provides

Bit Rates: Can play MP3 files that have been recorded with constant bit rate (16, 24, 32, 40, 48, 56, 64, 80, 96, 112,
128, 160, 192, 224, 256, 320kbps) or Variable Bit Rate (VBR) compression (16 to 320kbps).

Multi-Session: Multi-Session recorded discs are supported.

This unit will play back all CD-Audio portions of any multi-session mixed mode discs.
The CD-ROM data (ex. MP3 files) will not be accessible.

Resume: MP3 playback will automatically resume from the previous point if the unit is turned off or switched to another source.

There will be a short pause while the unit loads the track tag information and buffers.

No audio is played, but the PlayTime indicator will show the elapsed time of the current track (note: Variable Bit Rate (VBR) files may not show the correct time).

Disc: Plays all the files on the disc in a random order - each new song will be a random track from a random folder.
Limitation: Disc should have less than 512 files to have a full random function.
In case of a disc with more than 513 files only the previous 10 files are memorized and avoided to be repeated due to the memory capacity.

Scan (File/Folder): Plays the first 10 seconds of each file in the folder or on the disc.

This unit can display the PlayTime Indicator, Bit Rate, or the first 16 letters only of Folder Name,

pictures work wonders...
Sure I'll throw some up when i get home. Working 10PM-8AM tonight...yuck!
im about to buy the new alpine 9885 but ill wait for pics. If i like yours, ill make a deal with you.

I had a 740, solid deck, but the price is high :imo
OK, please understand that I have a really really shitty camera! Thats one of the good reasons for selling this as I know I can convince the lady to get a new camera...I'm not so sure I can get away with buying anymore stereo equipment with it! I wanted to show the excellent shape it is in, which is kinda difficult at night be you get the jist. I can honestly say this truck is driven once or twice a week on a day off doing errands. I have a commuter car so the deck barely gets used. I'm not kidding when I say you can barely tell the difference between this and a new one. Additionally, I put in a video to show that all buttons are working and that all the "entertainment video" functions are there. Onto the pics.

And heres the video link for the entertainment.
