k guy's cool it. and really touch screen has poorer graphics? k that's something new i just learn't, thx for the info. mabey just a reguler screen with a remote will do. and ya i have heard nothing but good about alpine, but have never got to use any of thier products. pioneer thier decks i have not gotten to use yet, but i have a pair of thier 5 1/4's in my door and they sound awsome when the bass is on.

miluni if ya read the caps in the orig post it clearly states im just looking and i don't want any one to sell me any thing.

That also goes for a large number of screens available out there. I have still yet to see a better screen. Combine the DVA 901 with the PXA 700 processor and you will have a hard time finding somthing that beats it.

Now saying that, the Alpine stuff is more money. Money well spent I think.

Check out the Macrom stuff too. They are a real up and comer in the multi-media technology.
I have to agree with that. Some might find the Alpines boring looking but i think they are pretty clean looking and functional, The Pioneers are cool but i think they look kind of cheesy.

i also agree with fat i have a the touch screen vrx935vd clarion...but i never use the touch screen feature other than to change my sound settings ( bass, treble, mid.) so the touch screen is not really a necessary feature to have..

I have the Pioneer 6600. It's a great unit, the touchscreen works good, although I usually only use it when I'm watching a movie or making eq adjustments.

Clarion is nice gear this year, especially if your'e an i-Pod user.
The Kenwood decks are awesome too, and this year the pricing has dropped huge...........give they a look too !!

i guess that is why we all drive the same car cause we really dont need to drive somemthing withmore power. or computer controlled functions. hey i guess a dial type head unit is just as good as the button type or a touch screen.

hahaha sorry i just had to say that. its the added attractions that make it expensive and it is that price that makes rich guys want one. right mulini. just ask him if his has got him laid or not. lol no offense meant, just made me chuckle on the "not really a necessary feature to have" part

I feel the Alpine 901 is a good looking piece and paired with the PXA701 there are no equals but like Pioneer guy stated it's a bunch more money and not an apples to apples comparison with the price difference as a factor.
Alpine has their own way of doing HU's and if I was a fan of it I would have likely chosen that setup.

For the price you can get a Pioneer N1 for I think it is a great unit as well as the current Kenwood unit.
It comes down to what features you need the HU to do though. Do you need a bare DVD unit or is navigation a real interest necessity? Do you need time alignment, crossovers, EQ's, 2+ preouts, internal amp, high preout voltage, 6.5" or 7" screen, etc?

Personally I'm very pleased with the sonic abilities and features of my Pioneer AVH-P7500DVD.

All the new limos at my workplace have touch screen controls in the back. They sure are cool, but it takes hardly any time before the screen is covered in finger prints, and looks like crap. You need a special non-abrasive cloth to clean the screens without scratching them. Such as a micro-fibre. Its just a pain. Its neat, but a pain to maintain.
