I currently have an Alpine...need a updated HU..

Which to go with?? I just want to play my Ipod through and MP3 cds easily. Simple EQ mods also required.

Alpine CDS-9847 (http://www.crutchfield.com/S-dQMk2Wztmsx/cgi-bin/ProdView.asp?g=62700&id=morephotos&pi=2&i=500CDA9847&display=XL#Tab)

Pioneer DEH-P6700M (http://www.crutchfield.com/S-dQMk2Wztmsx/cgi-bin/ProdView.asp?g=62700&id=morephotos&pi=2&i=130DEHP670&display=XL#Tab)

Thanks,
Hawk

Alpine, Pioneer, Clarion all make good head units. Look around and see the new models....you may find something you like better than alpine.. There displays are getting outdated...I.e. no full color or touchscreen...

The Alpine displays are more functional than pretty but the screen on the 9835 is gorgeous, one of the best i've seen on a headunit.

I don't need anything super high-end... what model recomendations can you make for Alpine (that is the way I was leaning anyway)? My only real need is to be able to hookup my Ipod and play MP3's.

Why is it every time I see Expy2000's avatars, I have this near uncontrollable urge to bone my girl.

alpine will out do a pioneer due to the simple fact that alpine is made state of the art and made to put superior sound quality radio

Prove it. I have many Pioneers that will blow a Alpine out of the water. Tested and true. Not saying Alpines ****** or anything, and ive had my fair share of alpines, just that they are kinda starting to be a boner on here and most everyone thinks the only way to go is alpine. Hmm and i seem to remember Alpines STILL only have 4v preouts...That just can compete with pioneers premier and not even close to eclipse....just might want to think a little bit before you say something like that. Unless you can prove it, with tests and all.

I have owned 2 alpines, 1 sony, 1 kenwood, and my pioneer sounds better then all of them. I'm not talking from hear say i've owned both and i think the pioneer is better
