Isn't that an '06 model? I doubt many people have it.

Well, you could have gotten a BNIB Eclipse 5425 for about $125 shipped, but the ebay auction ended.I was going to buy it, but it doesn't have a removable face plate.

Anyway, I haven't played with the 6800 yet, but it should be just like the others.Good amount of features for the money, half decent SQ, pretty good build.

Wow, now that was some great review material right there.. what are you going to tell him to do next go out and get an alpine 7998?
Anyway, back to your original question the 680/6800 is a great reciever. I've sold quite a few of them and they sound fantastic running either just deck power or with amps for the speakers/woofers. OEL display looks great and performs like always, and the rotary commander offers intuitive control. The EQ offers a lot of performance, that I would say you have a hard time beating at that price point from the competitors offerings. If that is what you have an opportunity to purchase, and it is at the top of your price range then I say by all means pick one up. I can't see you being dissapointed.

i have the pioneer 770 and im in love with it.

I'm sure an 06 model from around the same range would be a lot better than mine.

Interesting, I don't know how many you've owned but I've watched at least 300 Pioneer's go out the door in the last year and only one came back. Oh, and it was the crappy one, the DEH-1700.

i just bought the 6800 last week so for im very happy with my decision but my last deck i had for six years so for me this is quite a jump but i have played with other decks so its not like i am a complete morron about them

it has some very nice features on (not sure if its a new feature or not) it is the digital batery voltage read out very nice touch i also like how you can do everything by the remote also instead of just a few options. i know a lot of people dont like the multi button/dial but i like it not having a dozen buttons is also to me convinent

Actually, they're red with blue. The website makes them look a little pink but the 580/5800 I've seen in person was red with blue. Just a friendly FYI.;)
