    Icon32 Pioneer DEH-P550MP vs. Alpine CDA-9807

    What is the better of the two? I have looked at both models and still cannot figure out which one is better for the price. Anyone have any opinoins?

    Minor differences ...

    The Pioneer has 2 pairs of 2.2v pre-outs (no sub pre-out), the Alpine has 3 pairs @ 4v.

    The Pioneer can have various display colour's ... while the Alpine is white/blue.

    The Pioneer has 3 EQ bands ... the Alpine has none.

    The Alpine can get European tuning (radio), the Pioneer can't.

    Either way you go, you'll be happy.

    if you want better sound quality, go for the alpine. It has really easy controls and the display is pretty cool. The downside is that it doesn't have a dimming function for the display.

    on the other hand, the pioneer has pretty good quality as well but isn't as nice as the alpine's. the good thing about it is that you can go to etronics and purchase it for around $180 while the alpine will cost you around $220

    You won't notice a difference in the terms of actual 'sound quality' between the two units.

    you will notice the difference. alpines have a great balance between treble and bass, also the bass engine of the alpine is pretty good. pioneers have this high pitched tune which is great for some songs but pales in comparison to songs with more bass as against alpines

    Arguing about that is like arguing about how amplifier A will have better 'sound quality' than amplifier B. Same thing. Won't happen.
