i'd go with 880. i don't do the blue tooth and it isn't worth the extra money for pretty graphics

if you like flashy, and the bluetooth feature, get the 980

if you like tons of adjustments for sq, plain look and no flashy bullshit, get the 880

both decks offer the same processing :fyi:

since it's only $15, just go with the 980

only difference in features is the 980 offers bluetooth

the 880 has independent L/R eq. don't think the 980 does.

there may be other small differences

you're right it doesn't. good catch. in that case i'd go for the 880 if bluetooth isn't major important too you

it means you have dual eq's. a 16 band eq for the right, and a 16 band eq for the left for a total of 32 bands of eq

well, if you don't need the bluetooth, i'd get the 880

depending on the price you're getting them for though, the 980 may be able to be re-sold for more $

880 can go active which is the only huge difference. It also has auto EQ which i think works well. If you dont plan to run and active setup then get the 980. If you dont need the bluetooth, get the 780.

I just picked up a 880 at a local shop for $300 installed, and this included the 2 year warranty! The 980 was $399, and the installer told me that the extra $99 wasn't worth it, unless you must have blutetooth and a color display.
I like this much better than my old Alpine 7998.

I have the 880 and love it, but it has too many gadgets for me to play with. Which means I probably have it set all wrong.:laugh:
