All right first of all here's my current setup

My System in a Honda Accord 2004:

Stock HU
Navone 4 Channel LOC
Audio Control EQL
JL e6450 Six Channel Amp
Focal Polyglass components Front
Focal polyglass components Rear (except I dont use the tweeter in the back)
10" Diamond Audio Sub (Sealed)

I want SQ only not to rumble aroud town, just a nice quiet RICH and DETAILED SOUND, CLARITY is VERY important.

SO I finally decided to go buy a head unit and I think this eclipse 8445 is my best bet... what do you guys think?

Link to Eclipse HU's info (http://www.eclipse-web.com/cd/cd8445.html)

Its 530usd + 50usd for the metra mounting kit for the accord...

Any comments and what should I look out for in this or other headunit.

How much more quality should I expect? comparing to my stock HU?

I think you'll be very content with that unit...its a solid deck, great sound.

It will be night and day from stock HU IMO.

wow, that much then?

yes your stock deck doesnt feed a flat,true signal to begin with....you will hear music totally different in tone, distortion content...
