I ran the Pioneer 6000 and I really liked it

I didnt have any noise problems with it.

I think people say that about Pioneer when they have never ran Pioneer and love other brands

Cool. I just remember my last pioneer and I had the noise problem. So maybe the newer one are better. Anybody else have any thoughts on the above HUs?

Well, i have the X791 which is i believe a step above but a year older..and i have no complaints.

I definitely would choose the x791 over the older model of the P6000, but thats just because the ipod controls, they were horrible.
