Re: Add on EQ's
The 880 does everything you need. You don't need any additional processing equipment. I don't even think either of those come with auto EQ so you'd have to manually set them just like you currently have to with your 880 since you lost the mic.
I don't think you fully understand the capability of your HU The 880 can do alone what the Alpine needs the H701 for. What exactly are you looking for as to why you want to buy another processor for?
