    Pioneer Premier same as Normal???

    I was just doing a comparison on the Pioneer DEH-P3900MP vs. Pioneer Premier DEH-P390MP. The comparison between both were exactly the same. I was told before that the Premier has more options and features. Is that true? If so what are the advantages? There the same price at sonicelectronix and by human nature youll go with the premier with this case but what makes them different?

    Re: Pioneer Premier same as Normal???

    One difference of that particular model (390 vs 3900) is that the Premiere has a built in two-way crossover with direct subwoofer key


    Also, Premier factory warranty is 2 years while Pioneer is only 1. They must be built better?


    I don't know. I've never had a problem with Pioneer. Great company.

    hmmm Yeah Ive heard good things abot Pioneer but they were the same price which made me wonder what was so different. Could you explain just how the two-way crossover with direct subwoofer key exactly does. I think I know but now not totally sure.

    Premiers carry a better warranty and will more often than not have a higher RCA preamp output voltage than their 'regular' Pioneer counterparts.

    Only differences I could find from comparing features were slight cosmetic differences (color of outer trim) and the Premier featuring a 2-year warranty.

    According to the "specifications" page, they both offer identical crossovers and preamp voltage/impedance.

    Like prowler said, the difference between similar models is usually pre-out voltage and double the warranty.

    OK, cool, last question, how will the pre-out voltage help in or be better between the two? Thanks for the help

    Higher the voltage the more efficient your amp is going to be and the better sound you will get from not having to crank your amp up

    OK cool pretty much what I was thinking...In conclusion would the premier be a good starter headunit for someone?

    the Premeir models also have the 24 bitt Burr Brown D/A
    converters in them...
    Burr Browns produce much better SQ than the standard D/A's

    I dont know what the 24 bitt Burr Brown D/A does but if it makes better SQ than thats even better. Is the 24 bitt like bit rate with songs but the processor in the headunit?
