Kenwood x994 or Pioneer double-din?

    Anybody have any experience or seen one of these in person? I am trying to decide if I want this or a Pioneer double-din.

    The choices are:

    Kenwood x994
    Pioneer 4200DVD
    Pioneer 920BT

    The x994 is a nice deck feature wise. Not sure if I like the gloss and that big knob.

    The Pioneer's are nice too. The 4200 is sexy with it's full screen. I am leary about the motorized screen. I would have to add Nav and BT later. Nav for sure, BT I dunno. The 2V pre-out and lower SNR rating (96 vs 100+ for Kenwood) are a kinda downer I guess.
    The 920BT has all those features packed in. And while not as sexy as the 4200, still good looking. Just more money up front now (I have to get dash kit, sterring wheel adapter, wire harness and amp wiring kit).

    So, the big question is single-din or double-din. The doubles are nice but I worry about thieves. The kenwoods face comes off. I know there is a fake faceplate that goes over the double din on ebay, but.. more cost.

    I like having a GPS. BT I have never had before but I would think it is cool. I feel the Kenwood is a better audio deck than both Pioneer's. However the extra's the Pioneers give are quite nice too.

    Anybody care to comment? And if you have a 920Bt installed or the x994 installed please post up a pic. Thanks!​
