But, whether or not it's worth it is up to you based your goals for the system. I use a similar/cheaper interface from Alpine and I'm glad I have it. It does make a difference.
Were you planning on adding an amp(s) and all?
For components, go audition as many as you can at a local audio shop. Find out what kind of sound you like. Personally, I absolutely love my Alpine Type X components for their price.
More info on the Alpine version please. Thanks!
