    Alright, my old cd player is finally dying. I wanna go kinda big this time, so I was looking to spend up to $500. Thinking of going with an Alpine, but I wanted to get some opinions first. So if you have any good or bad experiences with certain cd players or even manufacturers, lemme know.

    I'm in the market too and currently looking at Alpine and Kenwood Excelon series. My last alpine (in a diferent car) lasted over 7 years.

    Alpine CDA-9830 @ crutchfield = 329.99 with wiring harness, receiver kit and shipping.

    Alpine CDA-9830 @ onlinestereo = 269.00 but I don't know if it comes with the wiring harness, receiver kit or how much shipping is (just started to look)

    :)

    Just to double check, what are you going to be mating this HU with?

    And personally if you are going to be spending that much ($500) I would be looking at Nak, I would also say Eclipse but someone told me they weren't as good as they were ~7 yrs ago :dunno:

    :werd: If your are just planning to run a couple sets of coax off the deck or something i personally would put that money toward other aspects of your system. If the rest of your system is on par then :bigthumb:
