    Whats the deal with newer HU's!!?

    It seems that every year that passes HU manufacturers make their products cheaper looking. I noticed that as the years pass Hu screens keep getting smaller and less detailed.

    Re: Whats the deal with newer HU's!!?

    Everything except for a few manufacturers are crap. Nobody has made a decent head unit in about 5 years. Just like amps. Orion PPI And Phoenix gold all were top of the heap until they were bought by huge companies and are now crap for the most part. Too many useless buttons and crap, and not enough quality and Sound

    Actually, Alpine seems to be doing better with their products lately.

    9886 is a good step for the majority of consumers.

    I didn't mention it because it's not part of the new lineup.

    My main gripe is Alpine is their decision to not put optical out on 98% of their decks.
