    Alpine or Pioneer deck?

    Which would you personally choose?

    The reason i ask, is cause im looking at the CDA-9855 cause it directly interfaces with an ipod. but then i looked at the deh-p960mp. both are about the same price. but from what ive heard the pioneer doesnt directly interface with an ipod like the alpine does. but then, the pioneer has 6.5v preouts as opposed to the alpines 4v. and it seems that more people on this forum like pioneer over alpine. so i need a pole.

    the only draw back on pioneers are there bad internal grounding issues other than that

    Re: Alpine or Pioneer deck?

    Well, this drunk came down my street a week or so ago and clipped a utility pole. They've already set up the new one but the remains of the old are still lying on the side of the street in between the sidewalk and the street if you want it.

    As for your poll, though, seemingly the new Pioneers have a ground-trace issue and the new Alpines just plain have issues. (out of the first-bathc '05 stuff anyway....sposed to have been corrected but the 1st-batch stuff is still out there for sale) Either of those companies are having not-so-spectacular luck out of their newer head units. Seems kinda hit-or-miss either way.
