Kenwood I think is slightly more expensive at about 600-700 USD .. Although the Kenwood unit is a rare commodity and not easily available.

Alpine 9887 is steering remote compatible, but I could not find any Alpine steering remote on internet.

Is steering remote available for Alpine 9887?

What is the price and where can I get one in bangalore?

It means they are compatible with the factory-fitted steering remotes that come with a lot of cars, intended to control the OE head unit. 3rd party adapter is also required.

Alpine. Only if they had remotes like what Pio/JVC has.

I just felt like coming over and giving you a good wack when that question was raised.
Lucky you've decided on the best HU now.

Hi guys,

Have just gone through the Alpine & Pioneer websites and it seems that the Pioneer DEH-P980BT and Pioneer DEH-P800PRS seem better than the Alpine 9887. Ofcourse i have only based this on the pre-out voltage which is 5V in the case of the Pioneers as compared to the 4V in case of the Alpines :-)

What do you guys think? Im looking for a highend headunit where i can operate my iPod from the unit itself like the Pioneer 6950

I would not prefer the P880RS / P800RS over the 9887. Specs are one thing, how it sounds at the end of the day is another. The P880 is good for sure but not better than 9887.

Unhappy Sorry! But I beg to differ!

This the base line of confusion!

Now the reason to upgrade to a better headunit and speakers are hoping to achieve the following: -

1. Better Sound Quality
2. Cleaner sound and frequencies without changing/upgraging the amps (not yet atleast)
3. Higher/better output (supposedly highend headunits have higher voltage output from the pre-outs which helps)

Do let me know if the above can be achieved as i would'nt want to invest in highend headunit if it would not make a difference.
The first 2 necessaties you've mentioned can be very easily achieved by an Alpine. Period!

Most of the Alpines give a stable 4v pre out. And measure it with whatever equipment you want, It will be 4 or very close to it. Not like many other HUs which claim a lot but won't even achieve anywhere close to it.

100%!
It's no comparison when it comes to the final outcome!
