im looking for a deck with great sound quality i have been an alpine fan i had a 9855 and a 9835 and i loved them both. I thought maybe i would change it up. Im more than likley not going to run active with the 9887 and i dont feel like buying the imprint moduale. The 990 has a awesome screen. Will they both have great sound quality? what one is easier to use? i would like to buy new any other suggestions? what would you picl?

The 9887 will be exactly like the 9835 and 9855 minus the motorized face and glide touch. Why are you even looking at the x990? The 990 has 1 less band for parametric and can not do a bandpass if you wanted to go active bi-amp.

Of course, if you can't tune with ****, then it really doesn't matter what unit you get. :confused:
