If you don't need a cd player or mind a cd changer than the alpine is the best. That all we use

Also ck out the clarion cmv1. It has a cd/DVD player, full iPod control, 2 aux inputs, sat radio, color display, nice unit. Remotes are good too.

I just completed a system with the clarion Cmv 1. Also nice unit, just wish it had a dedicated sub woofer output. I like the fact that is DVD compatable. Have ours hooked into 2 Garmin 7212. We only used this because alpine doesn't offer a comparable radio with video outputs

It does check the manual. Not sure of the color of RCA plug but you can also adjust it under the audio functions and control the level. We install them all the time. Have one in my skater with JL HD amps and a sub enclosure

the mc10 and mc20 have the reciever needed to make the remotes work, the mc1 and mc2 are add ons after you have one with a reciever installed. the mc20/mc2 is 2 zone capable wich i think only works on 1 or 2 of the alpine head units so you can control the volume in 2 areas for people with large boats/cruisers. they dont explain this well on their site. i bought a mc1o for 100 on ebay and a mc2 for 50 on ebay new, much cheaper if you like to search for deals like me.

Hmm, checked out the Clarion stuff, may be an option. I had some Clarion pro audio stuff many years ago and liked it. How do their remotes work vs. Alpine? Last time I looked at Alpine my biggest beef was the delay in the wireless remotes, wired Clarion might be faster/better. What about sound, comparible quality? I really dont need all the options on the Cmv-1, is the sound quality of the lower level units still good?
