Get the Eclipse, but keep in mind that you can get that model new with warranty from an authorized dealer for $229.

some1 in the link said it has massive rca noise, the pioneer one. Eh i cant have that, sorry.

The preout voltage for the eclipse is higher than the alpine. Is that a good or bad thing?

Ive never experience Kenwood before except their home audio, and i really dont like it.

If you read through the thread you would see that the ground trace noise problem has been fixed under warranty. The person who made the comment about the massive RCA is not the one selling the deck. They were refering to their deck, not mine. Also the deck still has 1.5 years of warranty left.
