I'm all over the 7800MP...but I'm still curious to know what the premier model will hold in store. I'll think about the bluetooth depending on the price difference.

WOW....great "looking" headunits...too bad they still sound like DOOKIE.

If you're looking for Bling, go Pionear. If you want sound quality, go Alpine or Eclipse.

Good looking units tho...will look great in some Honduh Civic dashes!!!!

how would a 24bit burr brown DAC and 6.5V pre outs (typical of premier models) sound like dookie? People rave about those stats.

stats, stats, stats. Check the competitions. Look who wins head-to-head competitions on a consistent basis.
2005 IASCA finalists:
3 out of 4 SQ finalists used Alpine headunits and processors. #4? Eclipse.

Where is pioneer or premier? The P9 is the only pioneer unit named, and it's the top-of-the line unit. Where is the rest of the line rated?
Oh yeah, the Dolphins are swimming across the screen in the store.

Read it and weep.

Again I reiterate....ask any of the people listed as to which headunits have the best sound quality, and 95% of them will respond with ALPINE.

I know, I competed for 7 years in IASCA.

Don't pull that bullshit card here. I not only competed, but I judged as well. People use what they like, period. If we went by what wins, we'd all be using Alpine HU, PPI amps, Quart components, JL subs, Audio Control processors, and Streetwires wiring since that what was all the rage back in the early to mid 90's. The every other manufacturer would have been squeezed out and that's all that would be left.

BTW, my DEX-P9 sounds WORLDS better than my 7949 and my 7618, you know, from back when having an Alpine meant something.

You are so full of shit, go back to the Iasca website check the forums and search for Pioneer , You will probably get a lot of hits about Team Edge and
Scott Owens abd probably the P9 cited as one of the best headunits ever made.
