    Help me decide

    I'm trying to decide between two mp3 decks:

    1) Alpine CDA-9813
    2) JVC digifine2.3 KD-SH9700

    Both seem to have their advantages. The Alpine is 27 watts rms, But the JVC is only 19 watts rms.

    The JVC has a nicer display than the Alpine

    The two decks are similar in other respects. I dont plan on doing a whole system overhaul very soon (i.e. no speaker replacements, amps and subs, etc). Just the deck to go with the 'premium' speakers. I'm torn! Alpine has more power, JVC has better display....

    What do you guys think?

    No offense to JVC, but I think Alpine uses better circuitry. Hence, the higher cost. I would go with the Alpine. I know their IC amp they are using is a pretty strong and clean one...
