My system consist of a active 2way + sub with a 9887. Nothing too fancy, but always enjoyed SQ. Been listening to my music through my Ipod for years now. barely listen to Radio or Cds ( maybe 1% of the time lol).
Also, I never payed with T/A. Only do a bit of EQ.
I can get my hand on an used deck P01 ( will have to deal with japanese text) most likely under 400$.
Last year, I realised i wasnt totally happy with my 9887. Although I felt it sound way better than my p780mp I had before, I still sometime feel the alpine is too clear. So, I thought maybe the Pioneer would be a bit more warmth.
With this introduction, would you think I would be gaining something by going back to a pioneer ??
If so, is it worth the trouble of the P01 ( 100-150$ more, dealing with used item + japanese text) or would the 80prs do just fine !?
Your input is much appreciated.
