Any suitable options for a Double Din HU. Will mostly not be playing Dvds, so Dvd compatibility would be a mere luxury.
The audio for now will only be a good pair of compos in the front and decent set of 4" speakers at the rear.
Reason I want to opt for a Double Din is to fill the available space for the HU in the Scorpio.

What's your budget Manson.
In the sub-10k range, i guess there is only Pioneer / JVC and maybe Kenwood.

Forgot to mention that, 8-15K levels. I usually prefer Pioneer for its easier controls and maximum bang for the buck characteristics.
JVC very often I have found to be of sub standard quality for its finish and sound quality.

A friend of mine owns it. Here is what he told me brief comparing with 9887

1. SQ is top notch and build is great. He owns Alpine and says it sounds better
2. iPod control is not as good as alpine
3. His old Gen iPod takes more time reading on Kenny.
4. Display is pretty good and customizable
5. Active / TA functions is a breeze
6. VFM unit
7. No idea about bluetooh. In his opinion better get 693 if you don't want Bluetooth
8. It can read Radio station tags (hes in US so cant say if it will work here)
9. You can customize colors for left and right hand side independently. Even customize the screen / text color.

Overall its a very good unit according to him if you are not much worried about iPod reading speeds.

Yes 693 has everything 993 has except for bluetooth functionality. But yes as KK said if you can get your hands on x9006 (X991 in US) then get that. It has dual DAC etc. Anyday better than 693 or 993.

KK sirji, 693 / 993 cannot be compared to x9006. X9006 is in different league all together. Anyday better than those 2.

P.S. KK you are a senior BHPIAN now
