07-29-2004, 03:19 AM
hey ive been lookin at some new headunits the new pioner avic-n1 with the built in navogation and gauges and such looks pretty tight but just cuz it has a lot of fancy gadgets doesnt mean its the best player. so as far as i know the pioneer deh-9400mp is the best pioneer makes how does the cd player function of the avic-n1 compare to that of the 9400? if anyone has any experience or usefull info would be gretly appretiated. oh and if there is a player that will blow either of these out of the water let me know.

07-29-2004, 03:27 AM

Thought the Avic was basically the 75 with GPS?

BTW- the 9400 is an older model...new model is 9600/960

07-29-2004, 03:29 AM
the 75 is better.
better features, better video and screen. t.v tuner. all that crap.
75 owns all. go to pioneer and look at the price. 75 is waymore

07-29-2004, 03:34 AM

I have said this for a long time, the Pioneer 9400 is AMAZING. In fact it is probably the only head unit I have ever seen or heard of that recieves so many outspoken RAVE reviews and Amazement by it's purchasers. It is probably the most sought after Head unit within a 2 year old timeframe, Ebay auctions go crazy for these things and for good reason. I have witnessed and heard identical testimony that the 9400 is almost too complicated and feature packed for even extremeley talented and veteran users. I have heard all the hype about Alpine etc before...that is common place and expected..The 9400 is a head unit people will be using in thier "AUDIO only" systems for years even after newer models come out. it is like old Fosgate amps or JL subs. a classic and....It's Like That! Trust me!!!

yep, pioneer has the upperhand in audio vs the other brands.
9400 is kinda ugly thats about it.
I saw it at GG but their board was messed so i couldnt demo it

07-30-2004, 02:58 AM
I have no "Owner experience" with it, but I do like that new DEH-9600..or actually the 960MP...it has 6.5V pre-outs..I never understood why so many people play the importance of Pre-amp voltage down (it's usually people with cheaper models with 2 or 4 volts who swear it doesn't matter) but I am a big believer..If you have some nice component speakers over $250 or a designer amp like Arc Audio, Memphis belle etc..The Pre-amp voltage "IS" noticeable in clarity and cleaness! And the Premier series of Pioneers have insane output voltage..the 9400 has 6 Volts standard

yea im kinda stuck between the 9400 and saving up for like the 7500 with the screen and i can add dvd navigation which i wanna do or i also like the alpine cda-7998 i just like it cuz it sux into the player and has the double sized face plate. but i probbly wont get the the alpine. so im stuck with the 9400 or saving up for the 75 so i can add the navigation and i like the screen. but ill have like 3 screens in my car then. Decisions decisions.....

07-31-2004, 07:11 AM
well if you sell your sub it'll help in your savings.

07-31-2004, 07:42 AM
yea but i also got re seein if they can make me some sx 8s so ill also need money for that.

A. If you buy the 7500 and add navi later, you are looking at tons more money than if you bought the avic-n1.
B. The 7500 does not come with a TV tuner.
C. The avic will do everything that the 7500 will do, except that the 7500 has built in 5.1
D. The avic has built in navi over the 7500.
E. You can add 5.1 to the avic with an external processor.
F. Just thought i would add that the avic is an awesome unit of which i know quite a bit about. I have one on order through pioneer employee accomodation. It will be in about three weeks.
G. Also, the avic can use voice command for audio/video and navi functions.

08-02-2004, 12:18 AM
B.is wrong, it does.
but the avic has voice controll which the 7500 dosent.
Although is costs money for the mic

08-08-2004, 10:30 PM
You would be correct sir. I was thinking of the 6500. Thanks for the correction.

i dont own one but ive played around with the 9600, avic, 8600, and a bunch of other pioneers....firstly i would like to say that i think the avic kick ***....beautiful touchscreen, however i have heard a few people ocmplain about its 'low' brightness in many conditions. the 9600 (imo) is not worth the money when the 8600 is cheaper (not by that much but still) and in my opinion has a much quicker user-interface because of the new rotary/5directional right selector knob....you can adjust pretty much everything without takin your fingers off that knob, i put one in a jetta and got a chance to play with it for 20mins or so.... not to mention the screen on the 8600 is the same as the 9600 and the software they have in common is exactly the same......im planning on gettin the 860mp....get that pro-switch **** with fully adjustable (slopes too) 3way x/o......should have it by the end of the week...
