what are the differences? i need one of these 2 HU to hook up my amp so i can adjust, im thinking the 9853 will be fine for what i need, but might consider bumping up to the -55.

Only difference I have ever found is the Bio-Lite display.

cool, then its not worth the 90 dollar difference.

Any body else?

I have the 9833 and in comparsion to the 9835 differences are

biolite display 5 band eq instead of 7 band. and a few minor things I cannot even remember. The 9855 has glide touch I don't know if the 9853 will or not.

i think it is worth it being that you can get 9855s for like 200ish i think...

the 9853 has 2volt preouts and 9855 has 4volt.. listening to my 9835 with 4volts.. i could never go anything lower than that.. no contest, go with the 55.. but most people dont like the glidetouch in general, but idk..
