Default If you were shopping today, which Head Unit would you buy?

Iíve been considering upgrading my OEM HU lately, so Iím curious:

If you were in the market to replace your HU today, what would you get?


I know CES 2019 is right around the corner, so if youíd wait for an anticipated release, Iíd be interested to know any information you have regarding it.

As for myself, Iím really intrigued with the Alpine Halo9. That floating screen is just sexy and I like the fact that it has apple CarPlay (I know itís wired/ not BT). But the screen resolution isnít all that great, and though itís much better than some - Iím concerned with lag time. Overall Iím sure my purchase would either be Alpine or Kenwood.

Nooooo... after all the work you did integrating that JBL/PAC AmPRO combo! Lol.


I've been looking at the Halo9 too and the X208U.. pretty much the same thing but different screen size... But will likely wait until they improve the screen resolution & wireless phone integration. Really wish they would bring back the digital output too but with volume control this time. Looking forward to CES news too...

If our gen 7.5 Camry's didn't have such a large area to fill; I would consider some of the other brand DDins. I've read some of the Kenwoods have high quality preamp - likely better than the Alpines but I feel the standard 7" screen DDins just don't fill out the dash enough to look right for me.

DDX9905S

Outdated Nex head unit. Frog GS60 mids. Seas tweets. 10w3 sub. 450 JL watts up front, 600 JL watts to the sub. Dayton DSP. Nothing too fancy.

Default Re: If you were shopping today, which Head Unit would you buy?

I would probably buy the Kenwood DMX-905S. I really want the DDX9907S but the coin is a bit too high on that one.

Only other thing I would consider would be the NEW-4400 (or its AVIC upgrade)

Alpine has been screwing the pooch on their designs as of late.

I hate it how the manufacturers are still like what feels like 2 years behind in tech.

Here's hoping someone can make a HU with
7"+ capacitive screen
HD screen 720/1080P
Digital out (optical,coax, usb, hdmi anything is fine)
Dual camera input
idatalink capability
auto TA

I sure did invest a lot of time into swapping from my Entune Premium to the factory JBL HU (+factory amp), plus the PAC AmpPro integration, but in the end it sounded like shi..., it sounded bad. I ended up with the infamous "hiss" as encountered by so many other Camry/Toyota owners and discussed extensively in this thread: Speakers make a hissing sound after amplifier install on 2015 Camry Non-JBL (Solved) and all these other threads.

I thought I would get a clean signal from the PAC AmpPro, but no dice. I haven't done much troubleshooting, but with so many people having the same issue with the Camry Entune unit, it wouldn't take that big a stretch of the imagination to believe that it extends to the JBL unit (with or without the PAC). Anyhow, I'm glad I tried the OEM route, but I think I'll cut my losses with it now. I've put too much time/effort into this project to sit back and accept subpar performance just to keep all my OEM functionality.

Totally agree on the screen resolution issue with the Halo9. I'm really hoping they reveal a revised unit at the 2019 CES, but I may buy it either way. As we both know there aren't many (any?) larger than double-Din (8" etc.) dash kits that will fit our generation 7.5 Camry's without modification. So, I like the ilx-f309 uses the readily available standard double-din for the meat of the unit, then covers it up with that huge 9" protruding screen. I've never seen one of these in person, but I know a standard iPad is 9.7" ( the mini is 7.9"), so this truly is one large screen.

I really like the Kenwood's too, but the lack of larger dash kits really makes them unpractical for me.

Alpine iLX-207 - until they upgrade to a 720p screen. Halo 9 screen looks even worse, same resolution, but even bigger screen, so more pixelation. I couldn't live with the RSX-GS9 due to the single din. DDX9905S is decent, but it's a Kenwood, I don't like the interface. One to also consider is the FiiO M7 and a bluetooth module.

Corvette: Alpine ILX-207, Helix DSP.2, Mosconi AS 100.4, Audiofrog GB10, Stereo Integrity TM65mkii, SDS CLD Tiles, CCF, MLV, no subs.

DDX9905S. I might just pick one up in the next week or so. The current rebate (ends 12/31) might pressure me into making the purchase sooner than later.

If you can wait a few weeks and aren't worried about the rebate, I would hold off to see what shows up at CES.

Had my DDX9905S installed by SkizeR a couple of weeks ago. It's a little tricky to get used to. But, definitely, worth the price. Nice job by Nick on the install with the Helix PRO MK2 DSP!!!

I was surprised at the amount of ddx 9905/ dnx995s that was at finals last season, and they held their own, also if you drive a car with a dnx995s installed you’ll definitely buy it over the ddx9905,I never use the nav but street info and other cool stuff is always displayed at the bottom of the screen.

Thanks for the additional info on the dnx995s vs the ddx9905. The first thing that popped into my head was that it wasnít worth the extra price as I use my phones navigation, but Iíll give it a second look.

DDX9905s HU| MiniDSP| JL XD Amps | GS10/GS40/GS690| AE SBP15
JL ZR800ís on the way!

disconnected could you explain how the Fiio M7 and bluetooth module would work ? as I'm thinking of using a Fiio in my active setup
