hey guys just out of curiousity, i am currently having problems with my pioneer premier deh-p960mp, so my question is which is a better unit (thinking of getting something different if i cant fix)

premier deh-p960mp or premier deh-p980bt

i can fix (or buy the same again) or get the newer unit, but im not sure which one has a better rating, any suggestions?

Other than the grounding issue, I dont know of any major problems the new decks have. Just make sure your deck has a good solid ground to the chassis, and I wouldnt worry about it.

I'm done with Pioneer. Just got back my 880 that was supposedly fixed...and no sh$t...same noise. I even grounded the chassis well this go round. Navigating this thing ***** anyway...880 for cheap....

i think hus at the same price point sound about the same.a $150 kenwood sounds like a $150 clarion or alpine more of less.i bet if we blindfolded people and set everything flat on the hus no-one would be able to accurately identify manufacturers. get a new in box 3year old hu that used to sell for $500 for $200 (cos its an older model), it will sound better than any new $220 hu. imo.

I am searching for an older Alpine. Should have done that from the start.

That could be true in this case. Untill now though I have had few issues with all my equipment, car and home. It just ***** now as I've been without a HU for two weeks, and spent allot on shipping...and will now be without again for a while. :crap:

All mfgs have problems. To say that Pioneer has more than others is false. Maybe its because they sell more head units that they seem to have more problems??

Buying an older Alpine with NO warranty won't help you out in any way. But if you like electronics products with NO warranty then go right ahead. Personally I would go with something new so you have a waranty as there are NO guarantees that ANY electronic device will perform reliably.

Not the warrenty as much as I just like the older Alpines. Ran them for some time, and have a 7894 in my truck now that works well for me. Also my experience has always been if electronics go bad they usually do it early in their life or are bad from the start. I know that's not always the case, but for fairly inexpensive equipment I'll chance it. Who knows maybe I'll decide on a new Alpine of lesser quality and try out the Ipod thing....
