    Kenwood KDC-X679 or Alpine Cda-9830

    I am torn between these two units. Price and all those useless features aside which is the "cleaner" or "better" straight out deck?

    The Kenwood uses the 24 bit Burr Brown DACs. That alone makes it a no-brainer (not sure what the Alpine uses). The x679 is a top-notch deck - I have an x879, and I wouldn't go with anything else. But I'm biased.

    that alpine has the standard 1-bit DAC. I also have the x879 and love it. If you were planning to buy off of ebay you should look into the x879s, they are going for nearly the same price as the alpine 9830. Of course, there arent too many differences in the x879 and the x679 besides the fancy motorized face.
