I have both being held for me, I just want the better meaning cleaner of the two. This will be tied in to my JBL MS8 by the way.
I like bells and whistles, so I have to vote for the alpine!I won't be using an iPod, just straight CD and possibly satellite radio. I was going to order the Nakamichi CD 700, but then I would be in the same boat. Too many bells and whistles for my needs.
NO, no, not you....the op said the 700 had to many bells and whistles..... (unless I read it wrong?)I said bell and whistles so I chose the alpine. the NAK is too plain for my need of techfoolery!
It will be simple and easy to use! Turn on put a cd in it plays press source it switches to radio! Press one if your presets and listen! Turn the nob clockwise and you get more volume!!!First I want/need simplicity as far as the day to day operation of the radio. Several of my clients use my car and I don't feel the need to have to explain how to do this,that, or the other to operate a radio. My last several hu were Kenwood DNx 99880 HD, def several options there. For this car it has to have simplicity as well as sound good. Now if this isn't that radio, please feel free to suggest another, I am not obligated to install this once it arrives.
