Actually we have better DACs now. Burr brown is still burr brown. Nothing in that regard has changed.

 

Burr Brown is already getting obsolete. In every way technology improved and cost has plummeted.

You know nothing about speakers.

 

What does that have to do with measurements and vehicle artifacts? Do you think what I said is wrong?

Agreeded. There is no reason to use old equipment unless it's a better value for what you need.

I always had /////ALPINE but switched to Kenwood a couple years ago only because I didn't like /////ALPINE's integrated navigation and I'm old/stubborn and won't give up a CD/DVD transport. /////ALPINE still has the best SQ and GUI, but in this case, Kenwood fit the bill. I still use PDX amps and Type-X Pros for the rest of my system.


What ever happened to the 7903, PQ-20's & 320 i/s ? :D

I have had a few Pioneers. 2400Bt, a 2500BT, and now a 501EX. I stuck with them for awhile because if I felt like upgrading for several years all I had to do was pop the dash open, unplug one unit, and plug in another. I'd usually pick up an older model on its way out to get whatever features I didn't currently have that I decided I wanted. This last time I found out once I had the dash open that they changed the shape of the power plug at some point so I had to run back out to get a harness and make all the connections. No big deal, I went ahead since I was already committed and had everything un boxed. But I might have taken my time and looked at other head units if I knew ahead of time it was no longer a simple plug and play swap.

 

Regardless, the Pioneers always seem to pack a little bit more features for the money than the other manufacturers. I just wish their hard buttons were as user friendly as everybody else's.
