Just wondering if anyone knows the difference between the XXV-01D and KDC-X990. They look pretty simlar to me..the only difference is the button color...one has red and the other has green. just notice that crutchfield dont carry the XXV-01D no more...and it was replace by the KDC-X990.

KDC-X990 sells for $399.99 at http://www.woofersetc.com

XXV-01D sells for $439.99 at http://www.woofersetc.com

i believe the main difference is that the x990 uses wolfson DAC's, the xxv-01D uses burr-brown DAC's.

which DAC is better? i have no idea.

I think the dacs are the big difference, wether that makes difference in sound i don't know, and also the site says the x990 is XM ready. I think there was also a couple of other minor things in a side by side comparison on crutchfield. I just installed my xxv-01d last night and all i can say is wow! I'm even happier with the price i got it for from crutchfield with all the install stuff for 349.99. They're currently out of stock.
