If going Alpine, I would try to get something that starts with CDA in the product number. Those units have Alpine's AI-net bus system, so you can add sound processing or other peripherals later if you want.

Shouldn't cost too much more to move up to a CDA.

i got this deck. the ipod interface is ****. it is full-speed and fairly easy to use. the deck really doesn't offer much in processing. if you don't need processing or will add an external processor, this is a solid deck. the ipod interface alone makes it wirth buying

do you have an an external processor for the alpine? does it help? my eclipse sounds alot better and has more control then the 9855

yes i have a ppi dcx-730 not installed though. like i said if he wants processing he should look elsewhere or at an external processor, but the ipod adapter is great and the deck overall seems to be pretty user friendly
