$4800.00... holy price BATMAN! What's so special about that deck? It doesn't even play MP3 or have a motorized face. Must be that "Optical Digital Output". I thought I got their top-of-the-line deck assuming any non-MP3 would be less.... guess not.

Zimmie... i hear ya man.

I used to swear by Kenwood Excelon line up... I even had the bad-ass KDC-815 deck in my E30 and thought it was the shizzle. I went ahead and bought this cheap (bottom of the line) Alpine CDA-9807 for my winter beater and DUDE! The sound quality is incredible. I can't stree enough how much of a difference the deck made from a mid-range Kenwood to a bottom-line Alpine within a 5min install. I did some more poking around and learned that any serious audiophile that competes in IASCA & EMMA seem to all use Alpine head units.

nice deck... but I cant really see it working well with a BMW interior.


same goes for ROB's 7893, great deck, but not for my car.
If I was going for clarity, I'd rock a nakamichi headunit over an Alpine, but you can't beat Alpines features + quality on a dollar to dollar basis.

Pure sex: Nakamichi C-700
