    kenwood excelon series.......

    I was checking these out, and they look pretty solid. Anyone have any other input on them?

    Re: kenwood excelon series.......

    Lets see here. i've have 5 head units, 2 disc changers, and a partrige (sp?) in a pair tree. (sorry, had to throw that in.) i've loved every one of them. some have much more audio controls than other. i'm curently using a XXV-01D head unit. i'll be using it till the day it breaks. i've never had a problem outa any of them besides something wrong i've done to em.

    how do they compare to the pioneers? Do they also have an intergrated high pass/ low pass fileter?

    awesome. I think I am going to go with the 890. I love pioneers and everything, but all of my firends have one, and I just wanted something a little different. Plus I love how sleek they look.

    Re: kenwood excelon series.......

    is that the only difference between the 790 and 890, the usb port?

    I love my Excelon! This baby is beautiful in all aspects. I have the X589. It is so clean, the sq is amazing. One think I would like, is to be able to get the 25th anniversary editon. I can only speak from my experience, but these head units are rock solid.

    Re: kenwood excelon series.......

    I've had quite a few Kenwood units, and have a cheap Excellon X-459 that I've been using for about the last 3 years....I was thinking of going with Pioneer just because I havn't had one for quite sometime. But I may go with the Kenwood just for the cost factor.
    Regards Sonny
