I'm looking into the new pioneer 7200HD:
Pioneer USA - DEH-P7200HD - CD Receiver with HD Radio, Full Motion OEL Display and USB Direct Control of iPod (http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PUSA/Products/CarAudioVideo/In-Dash/CD-Players/DEH-P7200HD)

Mainly want something new with quality EQ's and features comparable to the 9887 or Pioneer 880prs
around the same price range 200-300

I had the prs 880 a few years back. It has the most tuning features and so forth, but i just don't like the sound quality of pioneer. There highs are warm and dull where as alpine highs are crisp and airy. Alpine has the best sound quality period. But the pioneer gives you a better EQ and crossovers and so forth. I would rank kenwood a close second behind alpine. Kenwood excelon products are great. But I ran a alpine pdx and the new kenwood xr-1s on my subs and alpine is cleaner and has better sound quality. Not to say the kenwood is not good. It just don't top the alpine in sound quality. But the kenwood would be my second choice for a digital amp. Specially for the money.

i prefer my new kenwood bt945u over my old 9887 for sound

i dont run pdx class d amps and expect sound quality though
i run audison LRX amps and they sound awesome on my deck
