    Pioneer Vs. Premier - What's the Difference?

    Okay, so I'm shopping around on a new head unit, and I finally find one I like, the Pioneer Premier DEH-960MP. Well, it seems like almost the exact same head unit is available from Pioneer for $100+ less. So, would I be getting someting extra with the Premier that makes it worth it, or just getting shafted? Thanks.

    Re: Pioneer Vs. Premier - What's the Difference?

    Premier has a longer warranty when purchased from an authorized dealer, and some premier units have higher pre out voltage. Just compare the 2 decks. You should be able to get all the info you need from Pioneer's website.

    Okay. The Pioneer has 4v preouts, and the Premier has 6.5v preouts. What's the diff? What's it going to sound like?

    Re: Pioneer Vs. Premier - What's the Difference?

    It is going to sound like someone just gave your deck an extra 2.5 volts. It will be a cleaner and stronger signal to the amps, and YES it makes a difference IMO. I had a premier 6.5 volt outut last year and went to an Alpine w/ 2volt and OMFG..it was as clear as night and day. Go the extra ducats if you can and go Premier, a few more feautres and its the top of the line from Pioneer.

    Did you re-adjust the gains or just drop the Alpine in without re-adjusting anything?

    Well, it's going from 4v to 6.5v. The features are identical, with the exception of the preouts. Honestly, it can't be that much different to be worth the extra $100+ I'd be paying for it, so I'm just going with the straight Pioneer instead.

    Theres a fine line between what you need and what you want......I've made those same judgement calls in the past and was never happy until I got what I wanted-Its worth the extra $100 if having the best Pioneer has to offer is important to you

    Re: Pioneer Vs. Premier - What's the Difference?

    I almost got the 450MP premier instead of the regular DEH 4600, but i would have had to spend another $40 or $50 and i would have got another .8 volts for preout. meh.
