Our old 1989 Galant came with a Pioneer HU, while our 1992 Corolla came with an Alpine. Masmaagang nasira yung display ng Alpine, even though we bought it years later than the pioneer unit. Needless to say,this might have actually been just a "lemon" model. Pero I really wasnt a fan of Alpine even before. Ive always didnt find their designs appealing enough for me to choose them ahead of Pioneer.
    Stock HU ng 1993 Corolla GLi is Alpine. Had also a CD changer installed. Both conked out eventually and had a difficulty having it repaired.

    The Pioneer HU it replaced lasted longer and still in use until now.

    I've always bought Pioneer (3rd unit purchase ko na last month) because of the service and parts availability.

    I recently bought DEH-P5050UB to replace stock HU. The iPod integration is very good since it mimics the iPod's controls. That is, you control your iPod thru the HU. This is something I like because I hide my iPod in the glove compartment -- this is one reason why I chose this unit because the USB port is in the back allowing me to route the cable to a hidden location. Unlike other HUs that requires a separate 3.5mm stereo plug, you'll only need a USB cable to connect an iPod to the Pioneer unit.

    Although it only comes with a 3-band parametric equalizer, its 40w RMS built-in amp still makes the stock speakers sound a whole lot better.
