seriously?

If u are into SQ...Alpine 7998 hands down...

If u need the bluetooth and USB then go with the kenwood...but if its SQ u are worried about,I'd take the 7998 over the x993 any day

9887 is simpler than the x993. I played with the 993 today. I would take the alpine.

Still alpine lol..I heard those kenwoods are harder to control...plus the alpine has a burr brown 24 bit DAC...time aligment and other high end features the kenwood lacks.

That makes it much easier... alpine it is!
