Im looking for a shop in AZ, where I can demo the P99RS before I drop $1200. I went to Pioneers website and found no listings, called the local car audio shop (AudioExpress) and they dont carry it in stock. And Im not even going to try "Best Buy". Anybody know of any place?

Its nice to see someone else in AZ. And none that I know of. :(
May want to check on DIYma, they sometimes have some used ones for like $1000. Save you a couple hundred.
But yes, from what Ive heard from everyone it is well worth the money.

Yea the only high end place that I can think of is a place called Unique Car Audio, but I still doubt they even have one.

I know i loved my 880prs and the 99 is suppose to be 1000 times better. I would get one if i had the money

Same here, well I heard the 800 was far beyond the 880, and this is suppose to be much better than that, so schit, it must be a beast. Haha. Just the looks are worth it and the fact that it can play AAC Lossless files.

I've had the opportunity to hear a couple of these and they are very superior to most head units ever made. Don't hesitate to spend your cash on that.

Unique isnt the best, but they cater to deep pockets and might have something like that in stock.

When did I say they were the best? No car shop in the history of car shops is worth going to. Lol.

Fool, I was just saying from personal first hand experience. I had work done by them so I can say, "They arent the best" , and I can say they cater to deep pocket and I can say they would likely have a deck like that there. They have panasonics, clarions, and pioneer. decks

I have that deck and I love it. I've also had the 800prs and it was an awesome HU but obviously the 99 is better. You can probably go on DIYMA and find someone close to you that might have one and will demo it for you. I know Mikey something over there had one and lives in AZ but I think he sold it.

Just because a shop sells to people with "Deep Pockets" that doesnt mean they are going to be able to get this deck. It all depends on how much they sell and some other things. The shop in my town has built some world champion SQ cars and they still cant get the deck.

So you are wrong

Who ever told you the 800 was better than the 880 told you a lie. They are identical internally. Only difference is the faceplate color and copper chassis.

Hmmm, I thought there was much more than that, my mistake... Seems that its RMS amperage is higher, and a few more settings, thats about it. Wish it was much more compatible with an iPod. Thats whats forcing me to want DEX99. Though, the 800 looks 100 times better than the 880. Lol.

Well a copper chassis is a huge difference right? Anyways, white dragon your sig is awesome, who was the guy eating it in the vid?
