Well, I got robbed again and I guess im going to buy another deck but try to be a little safer this time :rolleyes . I was looking at the Alpine CDA-9847
and the Pioneer DEH-P4700MP. I like them because theyre detatchable and they play mp3s, I had a pioneer premier deh-660 that was stolen and I was happy with the product for the most part. Can anyone give me pros/cons of these two units? If one puts out better SQ then the other thats something I would be interested in.

I think that alpine has the best sound quality that you can find in a reasonable price range. the only upside to the pioneer is that they are easier to use than the alpines are

Yeah I was messin with my buddies Alpine and it was freakin impossible to get to the EQ! But im not going to base my decision on that, im sure I can figure out how to play with a deck lol. But if Alpine really has a better SQ then pioneer I might have a winner.

I think you need to get a new security system if you keep getting robbed. Or even better talk to a professional shop that sells the radio's and security systems together with the theft warranty. (It's a warranty that basically says if someone can get past the alarm and steal the radio. The manufacturer would replace the radio.) :clap

If you want a deck that plays mp3 get an Alpine. Most of the pioneer decks that I'd tried out take forever to load up the mp3. All of the 04 alpine decks load up the mp3 like it loads up regular audio cd. Not sure about the 05 deck but im sure it will be the same.

I think that Viper (dei) offers a similar type of warranty. you need to fill out a bucnh of paperwork when you purchase the alarm. and I think that they will replace up to $1500 worth of equipment. but check out www.directed.com I bet there is more info about it there

I think you can find better SQ with an Eclipse deck and with their ESN stuff, they least likely deck to be stolen.
I love my eclipse, but i can see it being a theft problem if i didnt have a garage.
