Is this a good HU??? I can get it from a friend for $130.00 and was wondering how it would compare to my Pioneer DEH-P860MP SQ wise??? The pioneer sounds pretty good already would the Alpine sound the same or better??? or am i better off getting another 860??? ( this one finally gave up after 3 years) Will the Burr Brown DAC in the pioneer still sounf better than the alpine DAC??? I have 2 Directed amps (1100D & 4200) and alpine type r 5x7's front and back with a alpine type x 12 for bass. The bass hits smooth and tight with this set-up and was just wondering how the alpine unit with its different crossovers would sound in comparison?

I have this HU and I love it. I am running two Xtants and an Alpine mono off it. I have not used the Pioneers in years, but the 9831 is definitely a good HU. Maybe not the best, but it has all the adjustments and features that an everyday driver would use plus some. Not necessarily a sound plus, but the multi color display buttons are neat to match any color your dash may have in it. I would recommend it to anyone. I have had no issues whatsoever with this unit.
