hmm i'm guessing you are talking about the p9 combo? i believe virtually the combos have the same abilities as far as processing goes but i think the p9 doesn't have a parametric eq while the h701 does. but if you were gonna use graphic then it doesn't matter. i guess if i was your situation, i'd get the what looks best and what is the better price. they are almost virtually the same thing.

Don't think either the p9 or this one play mp3's :)

The P90 is nothing more than the P9 with a facelift. A nice facelift indeed but it doesn't do anymore than the P9. In fact the P9 is XM ready where as the P90 isn't since it wouldn't have much use for it. It would be backward compatible with an XM tuner via the IP bus.

I don't know about the Alpine unit but I know for a fact that the P9 does NOT play mp3 CDs.

P90 is the european version...your radio wone get the full bandwidth IIRC. You will need an adapter and even then you wont get all of them.

Too "DVD" sound? You might need to explain that one a bit.

With ''dvd'' sound i mean a crisp digital and some hard listening sound.I'am looking for a really hi end listenings, smooth eysy listening ,foul harmonics etc.Sorry for my bad phrases but I'am far away from you.

why would you get the 9965 w/h701.

The 9965 by it self is bad a** but well over $1000 bucks? It would be a waste to get teh 701 with that unit, only thing you would really be gaining with it is the multi channel 5.1 "junk".

Have you heard these units?? (both of them)

Because I would like to think you didn't make that statement based on brand loyalty alone.

i dont think there is going to be that much of a huge difference. i have heard the h701 combo, but honestly, i think that your eq and crossover settings might be what you need to change. the h701 has 1\3 octave eq - play with it and that should easily be able to help your sound.

i see you are using some real high end components in your setup. so i highly doubt your setup is going to change much, if at all, just by swaping the headunits when they are both of such high quality make.

to each his own, i am going with the 701 myself. but i will be getting an DLSA5 and a DLSA4. so yea.

imo - tweak the xovers and eq first.

Hi guys

Finally the P90 combo is faraway from the Alpine.After 9 years with alpine units and the last 9 months with 9965-h701 the p90 is the first hi end listening in my car (maybe the 7998 was near this).Is not about the settings, is only about the sound.I hope you understand me.

Hive a good time
