Oh well.

The plug-in solution is in lieu of the multi-disc changer.

The indash units that have auxiliary jacks have a button to select the
aux input. I've seen one that switched automatically when a plug was
inserted.

If your car has an option for a disc changer, that's the best and
easiest route in.

In my case, the disk changer is thorougly integrated with the
radio/CD/cassette player. But there are amplifiers all over the car,
under the seats, behind the dash, and in the trunk. And this is the
cheap radio. The expensive Mark Levinson model which I decided I
didn't need (mostly because it was required for the GPS, which would
have been too much of a temptation) has even more stuff spread around
the car.

The changer plugs into the indash via a 10-18 pin connector (unless it's
one of the newer serial protocol units.) Either way, there are a pair
of line level audio signals in that bundle. You can get adapters (and
even breakout boxes with A/B switches) that will plug into the harness.
