    Not sure what to buy, Alpine 9855 or Pioneer 9600? Help me.

    Hello, I'm looking for a new head unit and I think i've narrowed it down to two. The Alpine CDA-9855 and the Pioneer DEH-P9600MP. I know which one is cheaper but money doesn't matter for these two. Could someone help me with my decision. The Alpine looks nice with the many options but I really like the Pioneer's background screensavers and such. Someone help! Thanks!



    2002 Oldsmobile Alero

    Head Unit: Alpine CDA-9855
    Front Speakers: Alpine 170A - 6 1/2
    Rear Speakers: Alpine SPS 690A - 6 X 9
    Subwoofers: Two 12in. Alpine Type R's
    Amplifier: Power Acoustik A2400DB Class D series, 2400 watts

    the only diff between the 9 series and 8 series is the motorized face (save yourself a few bucks and get the p860mp)

    9855 is a hassle to use b/c of the glidetouch

    I would wait til Pioneer releases the '06 Premier lineup. The 780, 880, and the 980 are looking very nice and they aren't really going to be that expensive. All these units sport burr brown d/a converters too.



    Source Unit: Pioneer P9 combo
    Tweeters: CDT DRT-25 Silk
    Mids: CDT ES-5 (5.25")
    Midbass: CDT M6 (6.5")
    Subs: Pioneer TS-W12PRS
    Mid & Tweet amp: Pioneer PRS-X340
    Midbass Amp: Pioneer PRS-X720
    Sub Amp: Pioneer PRS-X720
