Default Difference between Poineer 6850 & 6950 HU

I'm planning to upgrade my HU to Pioneer 6850,I'm currently using Pioneer 3850 and I'm pretty satisfied with the features.I want to upgrade to higher model I'm confussed between the model no 6850 and 6950. what's the diffrence between the same. In grey market I'm getting 6850 for 9,000 and 6950 for 10,500. Is this the right price for it?
Thanks

Nope! you should get a 7950 for 10500 in grey and that is a better head than the 6850, sounds good for a sub 10k head unit, also has USB support. The 6950 does not have USB or a motorised faceplate, and you should not pay anything more than 7500 for it in Grey.
At least that's the scene in Bangalore and it should be pretty much the same there too.

Some of these stuff don't need a port, they come straight out of factories/godowns here.

BTW, i thought mumbai was the 'easiest' port.

Weird..a couple of weeks back when i went to get my system upgraded i was quoted 6600 and 9990 as grey and original prices resp for 5950.Wondering how 6950 can get as low as that,or is it that my installer's prices are major rip offs??

DEH-P6950IB

It mentions that it is USB Adapter Ready which AFAIK means that you have to purchase an extra USB adapter to play songs through it,
Gurus correct me if i'm wrong.
