PLEASE TELL ME IN YOUR OPINION WHICH DECK IS BETTER.
PIONEER DEH-P940MP OR ALPINE CDA-9835.
THE NEW CDA-9855 DOESN'T HAVE THE 60x4 WATTS IN IT. AND IT IS CHEAPER THAN THE CDA-9835 BY A $100 BUCKS. OUT OF THOSE TWO, WHICH IS BETTER?
THANKS!

First, don't use caps. Second, go to a store that has both or at least downgraded versions of both and see what you like better. Third, you should look into a seperate amp for the speakers, and you probably won't notice too much of a difference between 50w and 60w of power, which is MAX power anyway.

let me know if this is worth keeping:

If you've already got the Pioneer ,keep it, they are both great units.

I would go with the Alpine but not the 9835 because the replacement for it the 9855 will soon be out.
