I need to decide on one!

Help me, please?

I'm looking for something that has hi-volt preouts, nice SQ, a decent EQ, a nice display is a plus but not needed..

MO has a Premier 860 up for sale.
kinda the equivilant to the 780's out now.

but if you are looking for something of really high quality and control, check out the Alpine H701 or Pioneer P9 combos. McIntosh units are nice. Premier PRS880 or Eclipse CD7000 as well.

I've owned the deh-p860mp, then the deh-p960mp and I was looking into the P9, but wouldn't be able to afford the DSP right away and didn't know if it would work without the DSP?

I've never heard of McIntosh making head units? The 880 id hidious, ignoring the fact that I said cosmetics don't matter, and the CD7000 is very interesting.. but very expensive..

I notice that Blaupunkt has changed their line, they now have very attractive layouts with TFT displays, Blaupunkt Memphis MP66 to be exact.. but it has a signal to noise ratio of only 80dB.. what do you guys think about that?

personally, i wouldn't use Blapupunkt anything.

there was a guy selling the P9 combo on caraudio.com. i don't know if he still has it or not.

Mcintosh, not the mcIntosh you are prob thinking about (Apple computers, lol)

Well, lilrob, if you don't leave some model numbers I can only assume you're making this up :\

1k won't be a problem, IF it's worth it.. and the ONLY top of the line clarion I found had very nice specs... but looked like a 50 dollar cd player from walmart. I won't invest in a 1k dollar head unit that looks like that.. so the clarion AND the alpine are out.

Looking at the dex-p9 now, also looking at another 860mp

I'm afraid I'm too old for Christmas this year :-(

At least for the gifts.. I might get some target gift cards, though!

But as far as my birthday goes, my whole family knows about how that guy put a gun to me for my stereo and maybe they'll hook me up for my birthday so I'll actually have a decent head unit? I don't know, though..

:-O I know what you meant... but I sure do miss my gumby and pokey hardened clay figurines :-(

ALSO

My buddy is going to hook me up with a discount on some head units... I can choose from (so far these brands):

Alpine
Pioneer (audio video and navigation units)
Pioneer Premier
Panasonic
Kenwood
Kenwood Excelon
Jensen (audio video and navigation units)
Sony

I'm going to filter through these brands... maybe you guys can recommend a couple units from each brand?
