    CLARION DXZ945MP vs PIONEER DEH-P8600MP

    which would you choose and why? also, how much of a noticable difference is there between a 16 bit d/a converter and a 24 bit. thanks.

    Re: CLARION DXZ945MP vs PIONEER DEH-P8600MP

    I would go Pioneer, I never had good luck with Clarion. Yes 24bit should be a noticeable difference in most cases.



    Current setup...
    Infinity 6.5s
    Infinity 6x9s
    Alpine Car Alarm for $14.00 installed (Workin at CC)

    Future Mods:
    Alpine 9825
    Speakers
    Some Amps
    More subs than my car can handle (Four)
    Hydraulics on a Stratus? Sure why not...

    I prefer Eclipse so that is what I would go with, then probably the pioneer, then that clarion.

    go with the pioneer. the 24 bit is better and noticeably to some. get the 860 instead of the 8600 just for the 6 volt preouts and a couple of other features. you can get them for the same price.



    But the better part of me knows
    That waiting in the throws
    Is on par with reading with my eyes closed
