I am looking at getting a new head unit this spring and have been pouring over all the info I can get on MP3 capable players. The two that look like the best options are the Clarion DXZ 835MP and the Alpine 9813. Solely based on sites like epinions I would have to go with the Alpine. I also like the fact that the Alpine can set sound delays to compensate for speaker location. Lastly why is the Clarion so comparativly inexpensive? However on paper the clarion boasts the dual 24bit D/A converters, and seems like it would have the edge in sound quality. Anyone have any inside info? Jus tfor reference I currently have an older Pioneer Premier DEH-740MP . Thanks all!
