Has anyone else noticed that there's a lack of reviews by professionals? I remember reading car audio mags monthly and holding onto the yearly head unit reviews like gold.

It's time for a new deck. Double din touch screen or Alpine and I don't know where to begin

There are some decent reviews online and youtube. You have to kinda dig thru to find the unbiased ones. With the age of the internet there aren't a 1/4 of the magazines like there used to be.
Sit down and compare several different units on an online store and figure out what features you want or don't need. That being said its hard to go wrong with alpine or pioneer.

I'm still hanging onto my old AS&S mags and CA&S mags. There's prob some hu reviews on here and search Google too. YouTube wouldn't be a bad place to look also.

Edit...I vote fore Alpines 9835. Can be had for fairly cheap too.

I miss those mags. So much easier to see whats going on in the industry. I probably would've known about mirrorlink a long time ago. So many new things.

It's funny you say 9835 boomin. I run a 9855 with a ipod and its awesome. Fully active everything you need except for the ipod interface is slow and it doesn't charge.

Not familiar with the 9855. However my 9835 won't play my mp3 player for some reason. I've narrowed down the problem to two things: either the aux cable which I bought new doesn't work or the unit itself. I've tried everything I could think of.

Now I'm on the hunt for the 7995. Alpine of course but this hu is unique because the RCA's are on the opp side of the unit rather than its usual location. This one will go in my s10 blazer.

Really if only there was a way to look at whats coming out besides youtube. I like youtube but if I could choose I can skim a article a lot faster that watching a dozen reviews.

Anyone know a good site to find whats out there?

Crutchfield has their magazine they put out with articles written by professional writers but its for a wider range. If Alpines and Pioneers sites were better it'd be a start.
