Thinking about getting a KENWOOD EXCELON KDC-X890 . I was previously going to buy a pioneer DEH-480mp to replace my recently stolen 4600mp, but im thinking i should buy a real nice HU this time. Was going to get the pioneer brand new for 140 plus shipping but can get the kenwood brand new for 260 plus shipping. Is this a good choice in HU"s and can i get it anywhere ese for a better price??

I think it's a good choice. I'm going to get the same one once I save up enough. My main points for getting it are the 24bit DAC, 5v pre-outs, and USB support. I haven't found any other HU that has all of that except this one, and believe me, I've spent a long time looking.

Pretty good price. Here in the US, it will run me about $290 shipped, so you're getting a good deal. I also forgot to mention that it has a high SNR (which is good). Like 110db if I remember right.
