If you like fidelity, buy this and stay away from the cheaper Alpines.

Summary: Replaced an Alpine CDA-9885 with this HU. It's wired to a set of Rockford Fosgate 150@2 running a pair of Polk DxI6500 and a Kicker C10 in my 1989 Silverado0 everything is crossed over with passives at 80HZ high and low. Tweeters in dash, speakers in doors. I never realized how BAD the Alpine sounded until now It's hard to explain but it seems the Alpine was missing certain harmonics from the music causing it to sound harsh, bright and flat- to the point it was causing...
Excellent features, Excellent quality, Quality manufacturer, Must have.

Summary: This stereo is amazing. It has many features found on similar radios with much higher price tags. The ability to set cross over frequency and offset volume for different inputs makes this radio a must have. And as always, you just can't go wrong with an amazing brand like Kenwood. I've never been disappointed with a Kenwood product. Nuff' said.
Summary: I get a new head unit every two years or so, and I just bought this unit to replace my Pioneer AVH-P4000DVD double din. This unit is absolutely gorgeous! Hookup was a breeze, the Ipod control is excellent, the picture is beautiful! The sound blew me away on stock speakers, can't wait to see what it will do on some new components! I would def recommend! Always wanted to try a Kenwood Glad I did!
