Default Pioneer, Alpine.... Best sound quality head units?

Hi,

I'm looking for a new head unit. Im looking for a single din. I am looking for the best sound quality units. I see that pioneer has the DEQ-P99 for $1200. McIntosh units have jacked up in price since they are not making these units anymore so I'm mot interested in that unit. Is seams the next options are $350 and cheaper units but I don't know how these perform.

Any advice on brands, models, or anything else would be greatly appricated.

Thanks.

whats your budget? if you can afford spending the 1200 for the p99 (you can find them for MUCH cheaper in the classifieds here) then do it.

I have the 80prs and love it. Highly recommend! It has a lot of flexibility and is a great step towards an active setup if you haven't done one yet. 16 bands of eq compared to the 5-7 of most others is nice.
