that alpine 7998 is interesting, i haven't done to much research into H/U's never seen a h/u without a internal Amp that you need external amps just to hear anything

For flexibility, 880prs.

9887 or 880. Depends if you like alpine or pioneer more.

9887 or 880/800 As far as going new goes.

You speak of eclipse, if you're wanting to chuck out some extra coin you can get a 7200 which is sure to be a fantastic unit. What are you wanting out of this? What features do you use/value?

Unless the 7200 has a poor interface and USB noise like the 7100...

Those are my main concerns with it, I'm debating purchasing one right now... I will have either the CD7200mkII or 880PRS by monday.

I would not imagine they deviated from the previous interface and design that much.

i'm just looking for a good h/u , i've never ventured outside of kenwood so i've never experienced the other brands and want some good opinions, lookin to build a nice system around it i guess i'm looking for good quality

Alpine CDA-9887!! After a few minutes listening to this HU, it blows away the Pioneer DEH-690UB I had before out of the water in terms of SQ.
