I ordered an alpine 9857 and payed $302 shipped.
After reading all the posts i realize i made a huge mistake and itll be here on friday im gonna send it right back .
I was a big alpine fan had a 7844 was a great HU back in the day but it finally blew up . So ill be without sounds till i get a refund - return shipping.

So what should i get at that price with shipping that will be a better HU?

Pioneer, Kenwood, Eclipse, all make nice units.
What do you need your head unit to do?

I want it to sound great and play music.
And have control over my settings.
Im just didnt read the new specs on it (what a moron)
I seen the glide touch was gone and just assummed .
But after reading the lost features and the quality went downhill i dont want this garbage.

Good decison

I'm going from using a Clarion DRZ9255 and an Eclipse CD8053 to this deck. I know I will be happy.
