i've never messed with the 860mp before although i did have a 840. but i have messed with the alpine 9835 a bit and its an awesome hu. very easy to use. nice display and pretty good tuning capabilites. not only that its probably the best looking hu out there. my only pet peeve with the alpines and stuff is that it doesn't have real time tuning.

with all the good feedback the 9835 is getting, i think i will go with that. I hope this is the right choice.


My last headunit i own, was a Eclipse CD5435. Hope the 9835 will IMPRESS me

I've got the 9835 and my buddy has the p860. I really like the way his looks, with the knobs on either side it's nice and symmetrical. It's pretty easy to use with the knobs doing everything with a push, turn, or click. The 9835 took me a bit to get used to, but now I can fly through it. I actually considered swapping my 9835 for an 860, but for what I use it for, I like the 9835 much better. For instance, the ipod adapter displays the whole artist/album/title's name, where his is limited to 8 characters. Also, the search functions are MUCH more streamlined on mine than his. Overall, I still like the way the 860 looks compared to the 9835, except I'd keep the black and white display, but I'm very satisfied with my CDA-9835. With the way head units look like they're going, I'll probably have it for quite some time.
