Given what I have read on the forums from a guy who had both, he said the 9835's pre outs were much higher.

9835... but i still would save more and get a 7998 or even a 7878 lol... ok they were old but everyone claims they have much better SQ than newer ones...

i dont know whats going on with alpine, their older hus used to have a much better SQ than the newer ones :(

X2, unfortunately in the US, there isn't much money in pure sq decks any more. Look how much money you have to spend on an Alpine these days to get their best balls to the wall sq deck...$2k-$3k. Clarion has the 9255 that maps for $1200, and hell, Eclipse doesn't even make a dead head any more.

The reality is flash/features sell. Many people(especially the younger enthusiasts) equate number of features with how "good" a deck is. The manufacturers are giving them what they want.


Clarion did the hx-d10 a few years ago(Sq oriented, great dacs, etc) and couldn't move any of them at $700. Nak and Denon no longer have US distributors afaik.

I LOVE my RF 8250(out for repair right now), and if I ever give it up, it will probably be to try a 9255.

Facts? I told you a guy who owned both tested the pre outs and said the 9835's were better. Why would he lie? Why would countless posts on the forums complaining of "where did my bass go" when referring to the 9815 and other alpines of that era. Given that one has weaker pre outs(at least as tested by a guy who owned both), WHY go with the 9815 over the 9835? They are very similar decks other than the pre out issue.


You could go to alpine's website and d/l the owner's manual for each and see exactly what the differences are.

Well go to alpine's website, d/l the manuals and see exactly what the differences are, and make your decision from that. You want "facts," why not go to the source? That should put your mind at ease.
