I just ordered a DEH-P770MP the other day and after reading some posts on this board it looks like a lot people prefer the 860.
Any guys out there that like the 770?
How different is it going to be compared to the DEH-P6400 I'm replacing it with? Specifically the user controls and menus, etc.
P.S. Cool board!

well if you were willing to spend another $100 or so, the 860 is obviously a step up. It has higher pre-out voltages and a 13 band equalizer, which is an awesome feature imo.
Although I have no experience wither either deck, I was going to get the 770mp, but decided to wait and find a good deal on an 860mp.
but personally, i think the 770mp looks a shitload cooler, and being able to control everything with 1 knob is very convenient. If your not concerned with slightly higher pre-outs and big equalizers, I think you'll be plenty happy with that unit.
also, PM the users "ruckus" and "Moe Lester." They both have that head unit and im sure they could give you all the assurance you need. :)

I just installed on in an "85 F-250. Pretty cool little deck. Three sets of preouts, and the EQ is pretty good at shaping the sound. It's also pretty simple to use, which is a plus for some of my customers. One of the screen savers is a voltage meter. Which is WICKED cool in my oppinion.

Installed it in my g/f's car. Very nice deck, looks, sound, and ease of use. And of course the price. Very nice deck. I honestly wouldn't get the 860 cause its not that much more than the 770. Only 18db/oct on the lpf. If I was gonna go higher, I would get the alpine 9835 or the eclipse cd8455. My opinion right there.
