its personal preferance i suppose i would pick pioneer, had alpine in past n too fiddly n sounded a bit tinny in my opinion compared to others, got pioneer at the mo n thats spot on my mates had just about every make (jvc, kenwood, alpine etc) but is now stuck on pioneer think hes on his 3rd now
 
Bit of a tough one.
I used to have a pioneer and was well happy with it.
After 2 years I got a new kenwood to match my other conponents and dont know if I like it too much The face off is not so easy to put on and also loading a disc seems to be a lot slower than the pioneer.But hey,it does the job.

Ive had 3 pioneers, a panasonic, a sony, i reckon i still like pioneers the best, i like the layout, the screens, and the sound of them, reckon my P9R will last me a few more years yet
 
had pioneer and alpine and i'd say Alpine over the pioneer. Just prefer the sound quality and personally i found the aAlpine better to use. Had the DEH-9600MP pioneer and now have the 9835R Alpine

you should go for the alpine 9835, its come down in value because alpine are about to realise a new line!!! its an amazing HU, you can set the specific band frquency for each set of speakers in your car, you have a 5 bandequaliser, it has a 60w internal ampilier and has 3 preouts for amps and the 4th can be turned into an amp output.

if you want professional opinion on what best you should go to your nearest audio centre, would reccomend car audio centre!!!
 
I just have one of the cheaper sony mp3 cd players. Was able to get a few extra pounds off that one when I got it a few years back. Does the job anyway.
 
Just ordered this head unit above for a total price of £248.97 from the US that includes Royal mail first class postage and insurance! Been to halfords to get a price for the same thing and they wanted £600 for it :eek:

It will work but the frequency moves up in 0.3 intervals as opposed to 0.1 interval for uk models........ie you can pick up 100.7 but not 96.4.
