I like the features but I don't like the fact that it only has one control knob (from the look of it) so it's probably difficult to use while driving.

But if you look at the animation videos, it also turns into a flying jet which is an awesome feature.

"In addition to the mind numbing options available to you with the CDD in the crossover and eq section of the unit you also have access to time-alignment on all 6 channels controllable from the listening position. As well as phasing and amplitude on each independent channel.

It's also available in two colors. Silver and Black. Whatever fits your install best is available to you!"

The face looks stupid with all that text on it.
The features are nice. That knob thing would get annoying really fast.
The knob thingy looks a bit to feminine to me.
Who knows what will go wrong. Will our american battery's cook the russian internals ?
P.S
I would take the " Real Ural" over the Ural H/U anyday

then you are besting the alpine F1 Status hu by leaps and bounds

that is to say that the quality of the internals is up to snuff - and the suckers dont die for no reason. and wtf is up with the text on the lefthand side???

im really very iffy about the interaction - it looks very clumsy with just the one button...

The hard drive "ATAPI Box" is a separate additional cost add-on unit, it's not built into the H/U.
It accepts a 2.5" hard drive up to 128GB, you supply the hard drive.

Hmm interesting. But with that many controls, I need a flip out touch screen, would make it so much easier than that knob.

Squeak, that H701 is pretty nice too. Lots of features. All it needs is a screen. haha After having 2 screens, I dont think I can go back.

I'd get in black. Anymore pictures? and how would I get one of these things?


hrm...Eclipse....Clarion DRZ...now this!?!?!

500 bux! thats a steal...and I'd still pay 700 for it...and I want it in black...

anyone have any reviews or other pics?

it kind of looks like a marine HU for boats and stuff. It is pretty futuristic looking and it deffinitily doesn't scream BLING BLING!

detachable face too??

and are we talking burr brown dacs or what?? JUst what kind of components are inside?

SO the Ural is really shipping to the US?

let me ask you guys..since I'm in the process of trying to find the right HU to go w/ my Seas Lotus references and Arc Auctio XXK 4150 amp....

Would you go with this crazy Ural?

or still go w/ an Eclipse...mainly the new Cd7000?

No, the H701 is not the F1 status processor.

Retail on the PXA-H701 processor unit is $550, retail on the RUX-C701 is ~$300 (for a total of ~$850 for the pair). Price really isn't bad considering it's one of the most flexible and user friendly processors on the market.


But ofcourse, if you search around for the right deal, you can get the H701/C701 combo for much less than $850 ;)

I bought the H701/C701 combo (brand new from an authorized dealer), a HU with co-axial digital output and a co-axail to Toslink convertor (and had that convertor modded for 12VDC use) all for around $640. It's all about searching for and finding the right deals :)

Granted the sub ch being summed from Ch1/2 is not the greatest scenario

It'll leave you having to use ch 1/2 for midbass, with a LP.

Condidering everything else it can do...all u need is to use a remote gain on the sub amp mounted up front to directly control the sub level...if it doesnt have one a level attentuator is only a few bucks.

*LOL* I know exactly what they are, and ED did not design them or have anything to do with the design other that color and a sticker with there name on it, they were given to ed as a sample, then eduh put in a large po, then screwed a certain person / build house, took the design and are having them made in china for pennies on the doller... At least that is what I make it the whole drama " all gossip, no proof of anything and I can babble lots of bs somtimes haha" but from a very very very good trustworthey source. Also if I peel up the black, I will see a voice coil *LOL* They actually have a black dust cap on them, not just a sticker or cover :)
