After 2 years with my 9813 I'm in the market for a H/U again...
Most of you guys know that I don't start threads or ask many questions, but now I am asking for some opinions from those of you that change your gear more often than your clothes.
I finally broke down and got an iPod and I want to use it in my car. My 9813 is too old to make use of the Alpine iPod integration maodule and FM modulators are poo, so I want a new HU.
My list of demands:
The unit MUST have:
-XM capability-I have an XM subscription and car tuner module and I can't live without it
-iPod direct input or the capability to integrate without an FM modulator, otherwise, why upgrade from what I have
-integrated x-over with variable freqs, not just a few select freqs but 1/3 oct freqs
-mp3, WMA CD compatabilty
My list of desires:
I would like the unit to have some or all of the following but these aren't deal breakers:
-non clipping outputs
-3+ band parametric EQ
-ATRAC and mem stick comp.

Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large numbers.
