I just got a cda-9855. my old deck was a deh-550mp. i liked the sound of my pioneer, but i wanted the features of the alpine. now i got my alpine and it sounds bad. i cant figure out where the bass and treble settings are. and i dont understand the EQ. its a 7 band EQ, and its NOTHING like my pioneers 3 band EQ. also, does any1 know if the "Media Xpander" is a good thing to use? will it send a dirty signal like Pioneer's "loud"?
