Looking at a new Pioneer HU - 80prs or 9400bh
2002 Silverado Crew Cab with Polk momo 6500 in the front doors and momo 650 in the rear doors, old, but they still sound great.
Bluetooth and sound reviews for both units are great.
Old HU was a Pioneer deh 960mp - died. However I was very pleased with the SQ.
I'm not running any amps or any subs and I'm am no audiophile.
My questions are:
The 9400 has HD radio built-in and the 80prs has none. Do I want HD radio?
Does the 80prs need an amp and a sub woofer to fully utilize the SQ?
If the the 80prs had the HD Radio option, I would go for it. But I'm thinking keep it simple and go for the 9400...
Not sure if I would notice the difference in the SQ between both units.
+ the 9400 is $120 cheaper at crutchfield.
I guess my question is how important is HD radio. I'm in the NJ NY area - there's a lot of stations that broadcast in HD.
Thanks for any advise.
BTW, this is one of the best forums for car audio info.
