Re: Kenwood vs. Alpine vs. Eclipse
Its really hard to compare the top of the line CD7000 from last year with a one step up from the bottom of the line Alpine. The Kenwood is much closer in features. If you do not all the options of the CD7000 and the Kenwood can be had for a little less then I would go with the Kenwood.
In my biased opinion I would pick the Eclipse but that is becuase they are probably my fav next to Clarion.
You might also check out the Clarion DXZ775USB. Its a step above the Kenwood in features. Can be had for around 220 on ebay or 299.99 @ crutchfield.
