    Which one of these decks is better for sound quality? Anyone tried them?

    Hey guys.
    Just wondering if anyone has had any of these decks and if there is one that has better sound quality than the others?

    Kenwood KIV-BT900
    Pioneer DEH-P9800BT
    Eclipse CD5030
    Alpine CDA-9887

    Has anyone had problems with these? or are there others around the same price that are better?

    I have a 9887, not a big SQ guy, but it's got built in parametric/graphic eq's and time alignment. And all of it is so easy to use.

    I've see a fair few people on here have JVC decks. I've never owned one and neither does anyone i know. Have you had eclipse, alpine, pioneer decks in the past? Is the JVC as good for sound?

    Thats sounds good, i heard some of the new alpines were a bit of a pain to navigate. I just bought the IXA-W404 alpine but want something a bit more for sound and dont really care about the screen or anything.

    Keep your opinions coming

    I'm not particularly familiar with the 5030, but Eclipse decks tend to be awesome.

    Do you just want sound quality? Only asking cause I noticed two decks you were looking at are bluetooth, not sure if you really want bluetooth or not

    the CDA-9887 is supposed to be a nice head unit SQ wise, and can run active

    9887 and the Eclipse are the two best on that HU list. Id put the 9887 over the Eclipse simply because the 9887 is better than the Eclipse CD7000/CD7100 and those are a step above the CD5030.

    Eclipse CD7200 mk II CD MP3 In Dash Receiver Brand New - eBay (item 160508767390 end time Nov-26-10 13:43:59 PST)

    If nobody else bids on it and you won with the starting bid, it'd be a better deck for the same approx money

    Don't just be sayin a brand cause you like em. Lookin for people that have tried these decks before

    Bluetooth would be handy. Alpine needs an adapter so i'll have to see. I'll have to read up on running active, i thought it was more splitting the channels on your amp to run seperate parts of a component set of speakers but i guess i need to learn more. Will have to find a thread explain the head unit side of things.

    My last eclipse deck shattered all the other decks i owned in sound but that was 5 or so years ago.

    Hmmm decisions....

    get a kenwood excelon, youll be happy. I run the 494, its sounds great. But any headunit should be accompanied by a 2 or 4 channel external amp
