Default Which Multimedia player is better??

Which one is better in terms of sound quality, options are:

(1) Alpine iXa-W407
(2) Pioneer avh-p4200
(3) JVC KW-AVX830

I want to have SQ but the thing is that all these HU are more the same at same price in US. Which one do you guys think would be the best one only in temrs of sound quality.
I am getting these HU from US so i guess they would work in India. Right?

Yes, HU would work fine in India.

Only thing that is different in India is FM band. There would be some option in HU to select positioning / separation of bands.

Thanks guys. One thing i noticed that the Alpine does not play DVD's so i guess its out of the picture.

What about JVC? I like the features and the price for which i am getting it but i dont see anything about the Divx playback in it. It does not mention anything about it. Does any one know if this unit plays Divx formats?

One more thing. Which of these HU will play AVI format. If not these HU, then please suggest any other HU which can play AVI.

Well in terms of SQ these 2 HU's can't come close enough to Alpine. As its out of list now i would incline towards JVC.

I have used Pioneer AVH-4250 and i was not at all impressed with it.

It will play AVI but will depend upon what codec. If codec is DIVX then it will play files with *.avi extension.

I am almost sold to JVC 830 but there are few things thats keeping me confused. They are:

(1) Whats the price of this unit in India?
(2) Does this unit has TA?
(3) How does JVC sounds, i mean are they laidback or bright?

I dont have much of an options as i dont want to buy anything online. I am getting this unit from a pickup store so i just need to go there and buy it. The other option i had is Pioneer 4200 which i guess is not that good as JVC.
