    I suppose it would have to be the top one.

    Don't go for the Sony one. As Sony are like the Gola/Hi Tec of the Trainner world.

    I looked at a couple of flip - down units, If you do it , consider swapping the position over with the storage din , making it easier to operate and see
    why do today what you can...... I'll finish this later

    2958cc was 175BHP @ 4000rpm, 370Nm (273lb.ft.) @ 1900rpm NOW 230BHP/469Nm (344.9lb/ft)!! www.IUsedToOwnTwoAstras.com

    Brett both are excellent units.

    Mark this is intresting:

    As Sony are like the Gola/Hi Tec of the Trainner world
    I know that Sony have had a bad rep the last few years but having had a play with this years stuff and seen some of next years stuff, they seem to be returning to form. Bear in mind that in the mid to late 90's Sony had some of the best audiophile units around, so good in fact that you still see those units in SQ comps.

    When it comes to some gimmicks, well both have them, but then again they are still excellent SQ units. I would suggest a play with both to see which you find easier to use. For me on the sound front there is nothing in it except for how you like your musical presentation. On the ease of use count I prefer the Pioneer. And well if looks come in to it the Pioneer wins it for me especially if you have a aluminium centre console. And on the cool front well hands down to the Sony.[/quote]
