They both ****...

Hate to say it, but Alpine went downhill this year. Their new units have a rediculous 10% failure rate, the now longer have v-drive internals, the glide-touch is gay/***** balls, and the only unit with 4v pre-outs is the 55 :(

That's why last years 9835's went from selling around $300 shipped or less...to well over $400 on ebay. Hardcore audio enthusiasts now this year's line-up is mediocre at best :(

I chose the 53, however I recently had to take it back to Best Buy for repair because the glide touch would get stuck, making the status light go crazy and render the unit useless until you jabbed at it a few times. Also, when I took it back, they asked if I had the 55. When I said no, they said, "Oh, ok. I was asking because it got recalled." Take that for what its worth. Regardless, I suggest you get some coverage on it. OH and lastly, I've been 2 weeks without the unit because Best Buy had to ship it to Alpine for repair. This has been the longest 2 weeks in history. :(
