Should I save up for a p99rs or check out another unit? I'll be getting 2k in about a month and looking to get a good head unit. Right now I have a low end 3100ub

How much better would it be over the 80prs?

I just sold a p99rs. If I am being 100% honest with you, I believe you can do better with a deck with optical out + plus a processor. About the same money... and you get more processing power. The DAC and DSP on the p99rs aren't as crazy good as some of the people at DIYMA would have you believe.

Also the face plate buttons aren't very sturdy. I didn't have any problems with mine, but you can't rotate the volume knobs quickly. I just felt Pioneer could have done better for 1.2k$...

You can definitely do better with that money with a solid source unit and an external processor. The 99 is the shiz because it's an all in one miracle. But not the best of anything.

Thank you for this Taylor! :D
It's a nifty deck for sure. Just not 1.2K nifty.
