i just got my warrenty replacement 5425 and 5435 and they are sitting next to a 8455 in my closet cause i got three 9853s to put in the three vehicles that the eclipses came out of.

chevy_man
10-26-2005, 11:16 PM
I'd go alpine man, I have had my 9825 since it first came out and it's in the third vehicle and hasn't failed yet. On the other hand, my pioneer DEH-P960MP just had the cable that runs the display replaced under warranty, although if this wears out every 6 months somebody is gonna get lucky on ebay. I prefer the sound of the Pioneer, but the Alpine will take some serious abuse and keep going.

OhioRed
01-20-2006, 07:02 PM
I almost got a 8455, but its too complicated for me, my amp is confusing enough. I used to have a Pioneer with way more adjustment, but it fried my brain trying to tune it all in. That 8455 does have alot of flexibility however and i imagine theres alot of cool things you can do with it.

But to answer your question, id look on ebay, ive seen some on there go really cheap, most are new in the box. I got mine on there. $350 retail, got it for $160 in perfect condition.

01-20-2006, 09:12 PM
Wrong Bro the 8455 MSRP is 649.99 and I've only seen 2 on ebay.One sold for 575(Which was stupid to pay that much for it on "EBAY"). And the other one was for 300 buy it now but was pickup only in Pannsylvania.I'm Florida so.........You do the math. Man I would like to spend 400-450 at the most for one.

What was I wrong about? I said i got mine on there for $160 which is $350 retail. Mine being a CD5435 not a 8455. Anyway, no matter how badazz the headunit, somewhere theres always someone wanting to get rid of one, good luck with the hunt.

pioneer deh-p7700! i had a sony xplod head unit and thought it was nice but after i got this pioneer and messed with the equalizer and subwoofer options it made them atleaste 4 times louder! i know 2 other people with the model above and below mine and really never have any problems with them and they arent too boring. but also i know 2 people with kenwood head units and one dude just got one so he had a head unit and it is a MAJOR POS!! it looks ok but there are no options and my cousin got his dad a kenwood head unit and it is very nice with a lot of diffrent types of options! Either kenwood or pioneer is the way to go with a head unit i thnk

Sony MDX-C800REC. Great features but not so sure about the build quality. Nowhere near as well built as the Pioneer CD I had before. Before that I had an Aiwa tape unit that was basic but good and reliable I especially liked the aux input on the facia (3.5mm) nice little extra I thought.

By the way, I am very glad I didn't end up buying an Eclipse. Just in the last two days there are 3 different threads about problems with Eclipse HU's. I was this close to buying an 8445 until I realized it didn't have a detachable face. Who doesn't make a detachable face these days?! What is this, 1991? I hear the SQ is great, but what good is SQ if you get your deck stolen? I'm hoping the 880 sounds great anyway.

Stock, no time to work on a system for myself and really, I could care less. After 20 years of playing with everyone elses systems, quiet is kind of nice. (and it masks the honking big turbo on the Powerstroke).

I replaced a 5 year old Alpine CDS-7892 with this device and have no complaints.
I did this because I wanted to use a flash/thumb drive instead of cd's and of the units I listened to this one sounded best, had a very nice layout, clear display and was reasonably priced...$200US.

By the way this is my first post and I am new to this forum though not new to car audio. My first purchase was an "FM Converter" back in the early 70's for my POS car. Been hooked ever since but been away for some years. I look forward to making some changes to my system in the near future.

Alpine IVA-W505 in the 07 F150 (best unit I have ever used)
Alpine IVA-W205 in the Mustang (second best)
Kenwood DDX-7017 in the 97 F150 (ipod control is only flaw, treats it like a changer but first gen with it)

I just picked up an Alpine 7894, and I love the ****ed thing. Best sounding deck I've heard besides a dead head Alpine and the DRZ.
