    The Pioneer Premier p740mp has 3 sets of pre outs.. the Reg. Pioneer p7400mp has 2.. and the 740 can be had for about $215 or so.. also, if your using a 4 ch. amp, you dont absolutely have to have 3 pre outs.. you can just use 2.. one for sub, one for 4 ch. and get a rca y splitter for all inputs..

    Personally, i would go with the premier 740

    Look hard at the Clarion, although it doesn't play mp3's it has a quieter CD section and better sensitivity on the tuner as well as 4V pre outs, 3 sets of them. Also Sirius radio controller built in and a set of AUX inputs..

    well, if your going to be using separate amps, might as well get the 7995. no internal amp, XM ready, plays mp3's, and 3 4V preouts, although it might be on the pricey side.

    but you said you don't need an internal amp, and that your going to use separate amps right? plus, with no internal amp, it will sound better and run cooler. also won't take as much power to run it

    Maybe you guys have never used the 7995 but it does not run cool. I can roast marshmellows with the back of the motorized plate. CD's don't pop out as hot as my stock unit but still fairly warm.

    I find that a little heat actually helps the situation. My amps sound better once there warmed up. Yes thermal heat does have a negative effect on sound reproduction. It introduces harmonic noise into the DAC (Digital Analog Converter) which can be way bad. The thing is different DAC's react differently. Generic DAC's like National Semiconductors and Motorola can have harmonic spikes well into the -110 dB range. One of the, if not the best DAC's out there is Burr-Brown who's harmonic spikes are in the -145 dB range. I'm pretty sure Alpine uses Burr-Brown DAC's in it's lineup (2 for the CDA-7995, 4 for the 7990). Just for reference the Sony C90 used 3 Burr-Brown DACs.

    BTW, Texas Intruments made back in the late 80's some of the best DAC's around. They went the way of cheap mass production. They just recently bought Burr-Brown.

    Also DAC's have dual or quad channels on each chip. Since all channels share the same chip there is bleeding into each other. This can also compound harmonics. Burr-Brown's excel at minimising this.

    On another note. Audiophiles are going the way of vintage. Partly because some noise is good. The 2nd, 4th and 8th harmonics can be unpredictable but constructive to music. While The 3rd, 5th and 6th can also be pleasing in some combinations. The 7th, 9th and above harmonics are very, very bad to music, except for what some people listen to.
