I'm looking at upgrading my head unit. Right now I've got a Pioneer dehp980bt, I have an ARC KS300.4 running my HSK 165 components and a DB Drive K512. I want to buy a head unit that will give me the foundation to build on and expand to almost any setup. Please help to offer up suggestions. Thanks

Please don't flame me for this, but is the p99rs that much better than the 880/800prs of the past?

I guess I really just have to convince myself (or have you all convince me) it's worth spending the money:D

I've been reading some reviews... I'm coming closer to being convinced. Is there any better HU on the market? For under $2k?

Current, I'd say no... But I could be wrong. But the sq, processing, plus the ability for hd radio, bt, usb, ipod integration, and sleek understated looks... Can't be beat in a single box solution imo.

Agree.the all in one solution is briliant compare hu and processor price the 99 is relatively bargain.If you wanna step up get ODR :)

Damn I wish I was still direct with pioneer... I've been getting their HUs from a distributor for a while now (when the economy took a dump it hit us hard, we couldn't keep up with demands) and only direct dealers can get the stage 4 stuff. I just can't justify the price without knowing the markup I guess. There's probably not much of one. I'm dead-set on this unit now though. I might end up cracking soon.

There is one for sale in the classifieds for $925 right now.
Not sure if you saw it or not.... Pretty good price really.

Very happy with mine.... And I got it at crutchfield's price. Lol it's a good investment.

Aren't you guys worried about thieves ripping off such an expensive H/U? What sort of security measures to you run to keep that from happening or are there any really worth implementing for a dedicated thief?

Most thieves have no idea what it is or what it may be worth :D. I lock my doors and turn my stereo down before entering a parking lot. Nothing too fancy here!
