    You don't have Nakamichi on there. Although i've never heard one personally i hear they are very clean head units.

    only alpine worth anything to me is the F1 h/u other than that i won't touch em. pioneer i've always had good experience with people who own alpine with say that my 940 ***** which is sheer stupidity IMO. the alpine's i've worked with including that nice 7893 and a few other's all broke down on me in like 6 months. and eclipse are solid if you get top end.
