$20 for an extra year of warrantee and a better pre-volt output, I think that would be worth it.

Not really the head units have 4v pre-outputs instead of 2v. Better EQ's, and bass engines.

i agree... if it'll only cost you 20 bucks to upgrade to the premier version AND an extra year of warranty coverage, i'd do it.

Premier is typically the better pioneer product. I dont know about head units, but the premier subwoofer and speaker line is better than regular pioneer.
