Nicely explained and updated there by Jared!
Yes, the N7 would be an 'SQ' bottleneck as you put it if you were to install and use excellent quality amplifiers and speakers - they wouldn't play to what they'd be capable of. The Dynavin is the only chinese unit which mentions using a Burr Brown DAC (digital to analogue converter) which will immediately make it sound just that much better than all the other chinese head unit clones out there. To take advantage of a better DAC and the output it'd produce, the rest of the IC's and electronic components as well as the PCB design ALL need to be matching high grade - which the Dynavin fails to mention so assume it's just generic/base level. The Alpine iLX-W650 will sound massively better in comparison especially if your upgraded amplifier and speakers are fitted and setup well .
