ya same here. My 880prs says Premier, but I saw it somewhere else and it said Pioneer. I think the difference is warranty...

They are different. Premier is Pioneer's "flagship" series. What you have is a Pioneer 5900ib. What your friend has is a Premier 590ib (Notice the lack of one zero). They are essentially the exact same product with the Premier's main benefit being a 2 year warranty instead of a 1 year with the Pioneer. Speculation has said that Premier components are a bit more "hand-picked" as well, but that's if you choose to believe that, which I don't.

On the newest units (ie. Pioneer 6000UB vs. Premier 600UB) the face plate colors change. Where the 6000UB has silver, the 600UB has all black. Apart from that, the warranty is the only difference. Don't fret, you have the same unit.

the one that says premier is probably a 590ib and the one that says pioneer is 5900ib

Premier is the upper tier of pioneer, they USED to offer different pre-out voltages from the pioneer line in the higher end IE: 8600mp had 5volt and 860mp had 6.5 v.
