I dont really know **** about head units

I have this Alpine 9813: http://shopping.yahoo.com/p:Alpine%20CDA-9813%20Car%20CD%20Player:1991205140:page=details;_ ylt=AvZfgM2UrLL_8ZHc1H7YGO8ph74F;_ylu=X3oDMTBiZ2o2 Y3ZwBHNlYwNzaWJzcGVj

Thinking about upgrading to one of these:
Eclipse CD5000: http://www.ikesound.com/product-product_id/5962


Pioneer P590IB: http://www.ikesound.com/product-product_id/6113

Also saw this Kenwood x890: http://www.millionbuy.com/kenkdcx890rb.html

I dont like the limited eq. capabilities of the Alpine and i would like to upgrade to something that has a built in ipod adapter and ive heard that the Pioneer deck has this. But, im definitely open to suggestions as long as i can keep it around $200.00

GREAT REASON TO UPGRADE!

Completely rediculous reason to replace a head unit IMO. Sound quality should be A-#1!:mad:

Like i said, i dont know much about which head unit is good and which is not. If you have suggestions on what i should get, that would be nice. If you think i should keep the alpine because it has better sound quality, i'd like to know that too.

How much are you offering for the Alpine?

If memory serves me right, that Alpine is loaded with nice features and is a great all around deck... why upgrade if it still works perfect? If I might be thinking of a different alpine 981X unit, lemme know, but I am pretty sute the 9813 is a good enough deck not to upgrade
