Re: Help me decide on Eclipse AVN726E, Alpine IVA-W505, Kenwood DNX8120.
Kenwood DNX6140 + an Audison Bit One. End of story. I've played with the 505 and wasn't impressed. The SQ with a 701 hooked up to it is great. I can't say with the 505 by itself. I am looking to upgrade to a double din navi unit soon and the Kenwood has won me over with its easy menus, adjustable lighting and optical output. The smaller screen doesn't bother me as much and I like how the firmware is upgradable, the BlueTooth and Navi are built in and the build quality (to me) seems better than the Alpine. I don't think I will go back to Alpine again. Their best units stopped being made in 2004 as far as I'm concerned...
