you might be able to find a alpine 9835 somewhere for that price. If not, take a step up from the pioneer tree and get a 860mp or 960mp.

I have an extra deh-p8mp and deh-p8600mp, but neither of them has a wire harness or the RCA out wires :crap:

I could get a Alpine CDA-9853 for $269 shipped from clutchfield. Pioneer Premier DEH-P770MP For $220.Pioneer Premier DEH-P680MP for 220. Kenwood eXcelon KDC-X689 For 220. Or save my money and get a
JVC KD-AVX1 for 400.

i have the 7700 and it's fine for the price but I am wanting an upgrade for better crossovers and processing. I guess i mean what are you looking to get out of the head unit

Good SQ and Mp3 playback. That JVC looks tempting but I really havent heard that many good things from JVC car products.

If you are using external processing i doubt you'll see much of a difference between the units, yes there will be some, but more than likely it won't be enough to matter. I 2nd the eclipse though, i'm thinking that shall be my next deck

Well anything is better than the pioneer deck I been having for a long time now. It works fine but need to upgrade with the times.

Lol I'll probably get pwned for mentioning this, but you can get an Eclipse 8445 with a Squaretrade 3 yr warranty for around 300$ on E-Bay. E-bay really isn't the best place to be buying something like that, but its such a **** good price that I think it might be worth it to take a risk on that warranty option.
