I have seen many many good things about the 800prs, although I have never gotten to try one for myself.

No doubt man, plus they have a higher pre out voltage than the alpine's. Idk how would this compare to the 9887. Rightnow I am just looking for other HU brands to try out, I was lookin at clarion too.:cool:

Yep.

I've been a die hard Clarion guy for the past 20 years. This the first time I've chosen a Pioneer over a Clarion.

DIY did a review between the two. I was stuck between those two as well as the Eclipse 7200.

i've got the 800 and it's awesome. i replaced an alpine 9855 with it which has almost all the same features as the 9887. i love it. by far the best hu i've had. by the way, you can get it through amazon from 6ave.com for 344.44 plus free shipping. 6ave is an authorized dealer. when you get the receipt, it doesn't say anything about amazon, just 6ave.

I just finished my install using the DEH-P980BT and I love it! I've got a CDA-9887 in my wife's Altima, and I think the P980BT is a much nicer deck!

Listen to you ears because some will say they upgraded from Alpine to JVC. I've heard all mentioned and owned some of them. Imo, no Pioneer sounds better than Alpine and Eclipse.

If the new Pioneer are anything like the ones in the past few years i would recommend anyone to buy them with their crappy RCA outputs going bad all the time.

i've owned the 880prs (same functionally as the 800prs) the alpine 9887, a top of the line (2007 model) kenwood deck, and the clarion drz955mc. as far as looks and using the thing everyday goes, i liked the alpine the best, but the crossovers on the pioneer can't be beaten without going to something much more expensive, like the 9255 clarion, or an external processor like the alpine h701.

i got a lower end pioneer around christmas 2002 and i loved it! sadly i left it along with my components in my car after it got totalled july last year. about 2 months ago i got another pioneer, i think its the 4000BU or something, and it has a hard time playing cds with even the littlest scratches on them. the 02 model i had could play ANYTHING. i have 300+ cds and i take good care of all of them and i only had a few that the old unit would get hung up on. it only had 1 set of pre outs so i did kinda need an upgrade. though right now i only have a 2 chan amp for my components anyway!

anyone else have any complaints about the new pioneers? the only other thing besides the cd tracking is the audio menu button which is also the volume knob and track seek button. lots of times ill start the track over when i go to push in the knob and thats kind of annoying. i gotta plant the rest of my fingers on the h/u for stability haha.

is there some kind of laser cleaner disk i can buy for my h/u? i think ive seen em before but do they actually work?
