Hey all,

I am selling my Jesen Mp3 player, it was only a temp till i got sufficient $ for a new one. I'm looking at Pioneer headunits.
i have $350 for this task...that includes that 2 or 4 year warranty that circuit city will have....so which do u think

B) http://www.circuitcity.com/ssm/Pioneer-In-Dash-CD-Player-DEH-P7700MP-/sem/rpsm/oid/116335/rpem/ccd/productDetail.do

Well, I had 3 but the third is 360 thats just too much. So which do you think would be best? I mean I have a subwoofer, I would like to have a crossover on my normal speaker to protect them from the bass frequencies when i crank it. Personally, I like them both. So I dont know which to get. Opinions?

I'll leave the choices out of this as I'm just not a fan of Pioneer, but that's OK.. But that aside, why on earth are you purchasing from Circuit City? Do a search on Froogle or ebay (check shipping w/ the ebay guys before you buy) you'll pay Far less then any retailer like CS, BB, Tweeter etc..

thanks for the input Jonathan. I was only using CC as a point of reference because i couldnt seem to get Pioneer's website to work. I think i will buy it off the internet. Much cheaper. Ebay is cheaper even thou shipping is like $20 ! Why dont u like Pioneer? are u an Alpine fan? I think the Pioneer headunits are much better looking than Alpine's.

The least expensive Nakamichi, is far superior in every way to anything Pioneer has to offer Pioneer is poorly made and their specs are fabricated.

thank everyone for your opinions, using froogle i found a Pioneer DEH-P7700MP for $209 including shipping. Personally I like the way this deck looks, my friend has a Pioneer Permier deck and its very nice. I have never heard of Nakamichi before. I'll keep you updated as i install it, it should look nice. the deck is more refined than my friend's due to newer model etc etc...

Thanks
Kris

Well, I've never been a fan of how Pioneer units sound.. Very bright and un natural, besides that Pioneer has never been a major player as far as head units are concerned. I like the Nak head units, Sony's ES, ie CDX C90 (the rest are pure crap), Alpine F1 (yes, I know they're ungodly expensive) and the Clarion HX-D10's and few of their other pro line of head units..oh, and I the Mac head units are quite nice as well.

To start, I wouldn't run any head unit w/ it's own internal amp..they all suck compared to external amplification. I have also found that w/ our MB's the area behind the console is Very well insulated and any head unit you have w/ an amp in there is going to get Mighty hot.

Just as a bit of disclaimer, decks that are Really going to be serious about sound are not going to go crazy w/ the 'look'...also, you need to check the RMS rating on the amps, not the peak output..it would be lucky to see that much wattage once in it's life.

there's nothing Wrong w/ them, I'm just of the opinion you can get decks that will sound Far better. For all the sound shows I've been to I have yet to see someone install a Pioneer that wasn't sponsored by them.

walmart sells their stuff for ..... sake..[xx(]

just a heads up for wal mart fans!

http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.gsp?product_id=2569438&cat=96481&type=19&dept=3944&path=0%3A3944%3A3947%3A96481

i'm with johnathan personally i have an alpine 9835 and paired with my i-pod it is pretty tough to top. I work at circuit city and the sad thing is is that i rarely buy from my own store if it is a major purchase, unless there is an accomadation price. i am not knocking pioneer it's good stuff, i just think that alpine is a little more sound and a little less flash.

my 2 cents,
jared
