Some JVC POS was my first head unit, i think i bought it for 20 bucks
Next was a JVC g-310 or something
Then a lanzar Kamealon haha.
Then came my alpine 9857
Then the Pioneer P-690ub, nice unit
My current it the alpine 9887. Worth EVERY penny imho, a little tricky to use, but tis a **** good unit.

in a nutshell
09-24-2007, 10:58 AM
Oh man, this makes for a trip down memory lane.
1st: 1991 - some cheap Kraco or Sparkomatic tape deck in my 1979 Chrysler Newport. It's all I could afford while in HS.
2nd: 1994 - Sony tape deck in my 1988 Escort EXP, then put it in my 1979 Chrysler Cordoba in 1995, then put it in my 1985 Chevy Celebrity in 1997 (college years - I was poor and kept going through shitbox cars).
3rd: 1998 - Clarion tape deck that came with my 1990 Saab 900.
4th: 2001 - Pioneer DEH-P6000 (http://www.pioneerelectronics.ca/pna/product/detail/0,,32171715_32249679_34575619,00.html?olderModel=Y ) replaced the Clarion HU. Still one of my favorite HU's.
5th: 2003 - P6000 got stolen, got a DEH-P8400MP. Still have and use it.
6th: ?????? but hopefully an 880PRS at some point.

Oh man..this is gonna be a list!
First radio....don't laugh!
Kraco tape deck. Amplified casette decks ftw! :p
Next up was a coustic tape deck..not sure of the model, it was in all honesty a pretty nice radio.
Uhm....wow...I then had a blown 7909 that I tried to fix..man I shoulda just hung on to that. :(
I kept rocking the coustic pretty much up till my alpine 7390 I think..not sure what else mighta been in between
So yeah, alpine 7390 tape deck, used obviously. Dolby b/c, remote control, pull out, funky layout with a huge square display. Loved it, but it was a pain to keep maintainted....age began to take its toll.
Oh, almost for got this, a Clarion Pro audio flip down face, unit. Very nice. Had a remote as well
Had another alpine after that, fairly new, cd player with a detachable face. I do not recall the model # at the moment.
Next up was a nakamichi 35z. I know where that radio is, I think I may try and get it back.
Then had a panasonic in the bmw. It was a pretty nice radio as well. no clue on the model # again.
So then its on to the plethora of head units I have now. They are as follows:
Alpine 7914 times 2
Clarion MP something or another, powered gizmo. I like it alot as well.
There it is, I have probably forgotten a radio or two, still, this should suffice! :D
