I am in a dilemma here. I want a new head unit but there are so many god damn choices it isnt funny. I want either clarion or alpine.......not pioneer, cuz everyone has em and I dont like the command knob.

anyhow here are the choices I have been debating about.....

a clarion dxz365mp with the clarion 7band eq

clarion dxz665mp by itself

alpine cda-9856

or the clarion dxz465mp with the clarion eq

I can get all for around the same price so what do you guys think.....??????

well ive never had an alpine and my one friend has a clarion(dont know what model exactly) but i love the clarion styling for some reason, and alpines look cool as hell and both are effective so I dont know.

might save up and go for the dxz765mp model later on but we'll see.

as far as eclipse goes.......the only ones that I like cosmetic wise are the 4000 models and above and dont want to spend 260 bucks right now.......

Mr. Capps,
all respect, but I would maybe consider that statement if you said 7995,7998, 7949, 9861, F1 but not 9835:-)
Nakamichi is great, but they got no nothin' (EQ, TC, XO)
Just get a unit with Burr Brown DAC's and you are set:-)

Pioneer FTMFW son.....


they have a unit with 2 control knobs, DUAL 24bit DAC's(one for each left and right channel) and a DUAL 13 band graphic equalizer....beat that mudafuka for however much they go for on ebay.....

*clears throat*

Pioneer > all

ive never owned any of those but i currently run the Clarion DXZ855MP .. the only thing it lacks is a good EQ but other than that it is a great unit.. ran it in my truck with those 2 SX 15s .. that thing would get down and do some flexing but the CD player never skipped a beat :-)

Rovin,
You are correct - 06 Alpines do suck compared to previous models. Looks like Alpine is gonna go the wrong way:-(
