4 Decks to Choose From. . . . .HELP

Hi,

I'm debating between the 4 Bluetooth/CD car stereo decks below. I would appreciate anyone helping me come to a decision. They all seem to have most of the features I'm looking for and the price ranges are in my budget as well. I just can't seem to tell which one's going to give me the best overall sound for music and hands-free calling.

1. Alpine CDE-143BT Advanced Bluetooth CD Receiver

I would not even consider Sony ... but that's just me...

Pioneer looks nice, 5 band EQ is better than the Alpine 3band, but Alpine has HP and LP filers ... if you can find out if Pioneer has the filters then I would go with Pioneer, other than that you kinda want the filters so Alpine IMO

Below are the specs for the Pioneer and the Alpine. Unless I'm mistaken, they both have HP & LP filters. If this is indeed the case, is the Pioneer a better stereo? Thanks.

Have you looked at the DEX p99rs pioneer?
Unless I find something better this will probably be my next unit.

Pioneer more features to control audio examples: Auto equalizer. Hight pass / Low Pass Filter. Graph equalizer. Advance sound retriver. While alpine to control the audio is time alightment. Bluetooth handfree only used for communication in the car.

What does the rest of the system comprise of? Speakers, amplifiers?
Sometimes a "tonal" mismatch will occur, and no matter what you try to do, there's gonna be something that doesn't "sound right".
IMO Specs mean less than nothing in the real world.
