My friend would love to know, which would be a better choice in getting the 9855 or the 8600?

Both are great...but Pioneer doesn't have glide touch...Alpine has 5 band parametric eq or 7 band graphic eg , Pioneer only 13 band graphic...Alpine 4V preouts, Pioneer 6,5V...Pioneer has coloured display, Alpine not...

Depends on which features your friend prefers.

I have the 860MP and I love it. I have had it for 2 weeks and still have not learned all the features.

According to Pioneer's site, it has both a 3-way network, and time alignment. It only has 4-volt outputs though.

Alpine hands down.

If it was the Premier 860mp... might be a tougher choice for me. But, I'd stick with the alpine.

the 860 has a 13 band PEQ, and 3-way xover. i would look into the premier instead of the deh. an eclipse would pwn either of these decks anyways :)

Are you sure about 13band PEQ:eek: That si beautiful...we don't have premier here in Europe:furious:

As been said, Alpine 53/55 an deh 8600 also have 3way x-over.

i never really liked the graphic color displays and i prefer the bio-lite on the alpine

personally, in my car, i dont think that bright blue pioneer backlights look that great..

860MP here. I love it. it does have the 13 band eq, 3 way xover, auto or manual time alignment and oh so pretty pictures! i have a coworker that will swear by his 9855 though.
