Re: Any advice?
The Pioneer is the better of the two. The 9887 is better than either.
Curious about your 'too much work' comment. What exactly does this mean? Subtract imprint and don't use the active capabilities on the 9887 and you're looking at about the same work to tweak it to perfection as on the Pioneer: Set gain, high and low pass filter, tweak the EQ (5 band parametric or 7 band graphic on the 9887, or 7 band graphic on the pioneer.
If you're not using the more advanced features of the 9887, it's not rocket science at all in comparason. But for a similar price you will have much more available for when you want to expand your system and get more serious, and will be unlikely to have to replace your head unit when you do.
In comparison to these two, the 9886 is nothing without IMPRINT. 2 band graphic EQ with subwoofer controls and basic crossovers. Buy it if that is all you want but if you want more than that might as well get the 9887 for a similar price to the Pioneer.
