Well ive searched and searched, but i cant seem to find this specific review ive been looking for. It compared the 9887 to the 880 and some other decks, and it rated them very well.

Was wondering if anybody knows of this review?

Thanks.

I believe Nismos14 did one. Search for threads started by him.

^^ What he said. Also I think a Clarion Unit was thrown into the mix. Very good review.

i just switched to the 880 from the 9887. controls, i have to say i prefer the alpine. i havent been able to get used to the pioneer's knob control, although its only been a week. for sound, and adjustability, the 880 wins hands down. looks, i prefer the 9887.

one major thing i noticed was that the 9887 NEVER skipped from bass and would play scratched up cd's. my 880 is picky, it has to have a cd in good condition, and even with a perfect one, it skips when my bass hits. my sub stage is a little more than needed though.

Interesting, I just fried my 880, so I'm am trying to decide between another 880 or the 9887. Hmm...

x2, I completely agree. In the future Im thinking about the 880, Im just such an alpine fanboy, I love the looks of them, always have.

If they just expanded the eq in the 9887 it would be amazing. Ive only got 5 bands to play with.....Pioneer has like 12 bands iirc. Thats the only thing it has thats better imo

Exactly, and its a shame is such a big factor though. Love the Alpine but that single limitation just plain *****.

9887 is decent HU that does lots of stuff :). Pioneer one is great as well but for pure SQ, i cross those 2 HU out :D

I played with a 9887 today.. its really sweet. the only thing i dont like is you need to get tuned imprint to unlock bass/treble.

I found a local shop that will install the deck and tune it for 460$. Deck is 400$ and tuning is 60$

good deal?

I have two 9887 decks and a pioneer 800prs. As far as user eq feature the pioneer has more, but the imprint tuning on the 9887 is really good. Doesn't quite get it where I want it to be, but does amazing things for the sound. I have each deck running active and the imprint improves my imaging and staging better than the pioneer. I only decided to get the pioneer for something different than yet another 9887. (Gotta love having four sq comp cars to play with stuff in) Unless something else really b/a comes out I'm looking at another 9887 in my camaro, possibly the clarion or a mac. 9887 is a great deck though. I have not been unhappy with mine since I got them.
