View Full Version : PH80RS to replace my DEH 9800BT?

My old Pioneer DEH 9800DT is going out on me.

I'm looking for SQ, 15+bans of eq, time alignment, DAC, DSP, and BBE in a replacement headunit. All of my speakers are laser aligned to the center of the vehicle between the driver and passenger seat.

After searching the forums, the PH80RS seems to be the way to go.

Is that still the case or has something better come out?

get it before it hits 350 new dollars per unit bro.
It used to be in the low 200s. That should tell you what kind of beast this unit is.

Crutchfield is recommending the Kenwood Excelon KDC-x998 Kenwood Excelon KDC-X998 CD receiver at Crutchfield.com (http://www.crutchfield.com/p_113KDCX998/Kenwood-Excelon-KDC-X998.html?tp=5684#details-tab)

Anyone have any opinions or other options they want to throw out there?
