LBM, quite possible. Do those white 'covers' on the RCA connectors have Alpine embossed on them? Cuz in the original the do.

I have nothing against Pio's sound or quality. I have an issue with them treating Indian customers like second class citizens. Now that they are offering systems with Bill and Warranty like they should have from day one I am quite happy recommnding them with this caeveat (BUY ONLY WITH BILL AND WARRANTY THERE IS TOO MUCH SPURIOUS STOCK OUT THERE AND WITHOUT B&W YOU'LL BE SUNK IF YOU NEED SERVICE).

Best places in Sing for electronics is Sim Lim and best place if you are DIYer is Burlington square thankfully they are all close together.

The way Alpine is headed (dropped TA etc from their HUs, now there are rumours the H701 is being discontinued), it is clear they are no longer catering to the discerning enthusiast but instead wanting a chunk of the general audio market that Sony, JVC etc have. The only great products are in the F1 range. Sad, but true...

Meanwhile, Surprisingly, even in the US, I see Pioneer clearly overtaking them and Eclipse etc with products like the P80RS etc. Navinji you may remember, last year I said that if Pioneer wants to go legit and if they find a distributor in India with the ***** to take on the grey market, they WILL support them. And that has happened. Hopefully, their pricing will come down, I hear they might even be OEM in some of our cars in the future.

I have only one criteria. Good Sound. I dont care which brand or badge produces it. If Bose gets it's act together and produces good sound I'd buy Bose too.

There used to be a place over there focussing on car stereo but it has disappeared - few places focussing on single brands. Most of the car audio stuff are in the 'burbs.

Yup, Sim Lim is mostly into IT now. Last year there were only a handful of shops dealing in audio. 10 years ago it was vice versa. And if you really wanna feel poor, like you amount to nothing, head straight for Adelphi. You can get to hear some exotic stuff there.
