After mulling over pulling the 760 out of my 98 I decided to just leave it in and sell it with the car since the 2001 I just picked up is black interior with orange gauge lighting and controls. The blue text and silver face of the 760 would look like ***! :crazy: Besides I think it is time for an upgrade. Anyone know of a black faced HU with orange display? Nice EQ, Aux input connection for XM SkyFi2, MP3, CD-R, High Pre-Outs VDC :naughty: , and some other junk I probably don't need but wouldn't mind having. Maybe a Kenwood, Eclipse, Alpine or even another Pioneer if they offer such an animal.

My new toy... 2001 Civic EX. Now I have to swap all the crap over from the 98 except the HU :crazy:

Been looking around and can't find a very dark grey or black faced unit with orange/red keys and orange/red text. Anyone see anything?

the only HU that i can think of that lights up orange is the alpine 9835.

clarions decks use to change color, user selectable.. Not sure if they still do, but maybe u could track down one of their older models

This is close to what I am looking for. I can live with white text but not blue or green. Only problem with this one is it doesn't have much features: http://www.kenwoodusa.com/products/ListProduct.aspx?k1=2&k2=46&k3=172&pr=2370

Guess youll have to decide whats more important.....how your deck sounds, or how it looks.
:rolleyes:

Should be an easy call.

In that case the Eclipse 5000 and 7000 hit 2 out of 3. Black/dark grey face, orange/red keys. Which of those two?

try an apline 9847, it had 4 lighting options, one of them was orange.

My Alpine CDA-9855 has a bunch of color options, I Know one of them is red, I'm sure it had orange too. And the face is black.

I sent Eclipse, Pioneer and Kenwood e-mails to see if they have anything new or old that would fit the bill. It will be interesting to see who responds first and what they come up with. :naughty:

Wow! You are right. Are they a decent unit?

Seems this board is great where someone usually has the answer.

After speaking with the Eclipse Tech and he said I can get all amber on the keys and face I placed an order with Crutchfield for the CD-5000. Now I can see what all the talk is about and see what difference 8V preouts has. :naughty:
