What is so special about the iPod control on the IDA-X001, other than the display...vs something like the forthcoming 9887?
The Pioneer DEH-P880PRS also looks interesting to me. How does the iPod integration on it compare with the Alpine's?
I'm interested in sound quality, but dont care to fight though 10000 features I wont use. I'll probably listen almost exclusively to music through my iPod and sat radio.
A CD would be nice though...which the X001 doesnt have. I'm trying to figure out why it is priced like it is w/o a CD....people seem to think the 9887 will sound better...AND it has a CD....so what is so great about the X001?
Also, reading through the docs on the X100, it sounds like the USB interface gives you more advanced features than the "full speed connection". What is the difference b/t the two...not sure why they are both there and which would be better to use.
