Optical?? Holy shit!!! Sound quality has got to be bad ass. No noise on optical cause it's.. well... light!

yeah, optical.... my $150 Panasonic DVD player has OPTICAL output, is that a reason for Alpine to charge $4000.00 more than the next best model?

This table will give you an indication of what people are using (brand-wise) in the World Championships competing in IASCA & EMMA.

P.S. Take note of the TOTAL column.

Yes I know...but the problem with Denon + eclipse is that there arent that many distributors out there and are relativly expensive.
Most competitors concentrate on their amps,subs,componets,and proper installation. Really expensive decks usually arent on a "High" priority list for competitors, especially SPL.

Actually the Alpine F1 is regarded as the cream of the crop, but I can't imagine an Alpine out-doing an MacIntosh deck or the Nak deck I put up earlier.
