PIONEER DEH-P7600MP http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=39752&item=5740512888&rd=1

or

ALPINE CDA-9827 http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=39750&item=5740210583&rd=1

I like buttons and things to mess around with, so which one has most features?

Its hard to say, the Pioneer has an EQ, and has a more powerful built in amp, so if you are not using a seperate amp for your components you may want to go ahead and get it.

However it is only a few watts difference, and the pioneer is more expensive, but I would say alpine has possible slightly better quality, but the difference seems inaudible.

If you are willing to spend a few extra bucks go ahead and get the pioneer, but if you already got an EQ, or you have a seperate amp for your components and it has a crossover you can check out the alpine.

Just a quick follow up, since alot of people are asking about the same decks...

how did you come to the conclusion from those links that the alpine is better quality? i would go alpine because of the 4 volt preouts vs. pioneer's 2 volt. look into getting a premier 760. i know my old premier 750 had 6 volt outputs, so i'm assuming the 760 does as well.

The Signal to noise ratio, and the pre out voltage...both deal with quality, higher the better...and alpine are generally well built.

and yes the 4v > 2.2
+105 db stn > 94 db stn

The pioneer is a bit more flashy...

in sound quality, but that doesn't mean in durability. you would hardly notice a difference between 105 and 94 db's. if you don't get any noise in your system at 2.2 volts, going to 4 volts will do nothing for you.
