Same here. Except my hearing is still good lol
The Alpine system is actually decent for what it is. I've owned a lot of vehicles and the Alpine does not disappoint, it just lacks decent lows and clarity.
I've tested the HK system briefly on the lot while I was getting my oil changed. It was impressive. Reminds me of my old Bose home theatre system. Tons of clarity. I'm not an 'audiophile' though. My wife's Lexus GS has 19 speaker Mark Levinson and I liked the HK (for the brief moment I tested it) better than the ML. I would say the small price to pay is worth it for the HK.
