    Icon7 My first HU, a new JVC 2005 model - good choice?

    Found this model called JVC KD-G611:



    - MP3/WMA
    - 24-bit resolution DAC.
    - HS-II tuner
    - DAB Ready.
    - MOS-FET
    - subwoofer line output
    - front aux input.

    I really really like the look of it. Very clean and stylish.

    The HS-II tuner is really one of the best radio tuners out there (at least for FM broadcasts in Europe).

    I can get the cheapest Alpine for about the same price. But the Alpine is not as stylish, minimalistic, clean looking as the JVC unit. And the JVC got a aux input on the front which the Alpine does not. Great for buddies to hook in their mp3-players.

    Is this unit pure crap, or is it a safe buy do you think?

    ooh, a DAB tuner Too bad that won't be coming to the States anytime soon.

    Based on specs alone, should be good...although I like Alpine head units a lot

    Re: My first HU, a new JVC 2005 model - good choice?

    I have owned a few jvc's as well as some $1000++ alpine units. For budget there is nothing wrong with a JVC and that unit looks pretty darn good. But even though I like that deck and how it looks I still own two 9843 alpines for my cheaper units if that tells ya anything...

    Re: My first HU, a new JVC 2005 model - good choice?

    The Alpine CDE-9845RR is 303 USD. (Here in Europe atleaste)
    This JVC 611 unit is 270 USD.

    And what do I miss out if choosing the Alpine:
    - Aux in for connecting my mp3-player
    - MOS-FET circuit for good W RMS. (Im not gonna use an external amplifier)
    - Slick and much more good looking unit.
    - DAB-ready - we already got DAB broadcasts in Sweden.

    The Alpine got better sound quality, okay, I buy that. But then again. Im not going for external amplifier and four hundreds speakers and subs. Just gonna use some really good all-range speakers. Maybe the Swedish DLS speakers.

    JVC's are decent HUs for the money you pay. I got mine for $150, it's now about 110 / 120 new, and it's worth the price, dispite it's setbacks. You can expect it to be overrated, but then if it's like my JVC KD-G300 it's also giong to be very cleverly designed.
