I believe so...

We just put one up on our display wall today... it's pretty ****...

The only thing I might replace my 9835 with... it's tempting...

Werd.

I toyed with it, but didn't get a true feel.

I'm the one who put it on display too...

Asked my boss if I could pull my truck in... install it for a sec and take a listen to see the real difference (We were SO slow today...)...BUT he still wouldn't let me :(...

I look forward to one of your fancy reviews ;)... like you did with the 9835 :)

Cool. Some things that bother me about it after reading the specs on good old crunchfried.... Crossovers only run to 18db/oct and no steeper... also the peq does not have an adjustable q setting per band..? Makes you wonder what the crap the Q actually is on each band

atrac3 files are some Sony proprietary format that were used on the Mini disc recorders introduced a few years ago. stupid to include that in a deck imo

If you go steeper than 18dB/oct. on an x-over phase errors get hard to correct and you also start to introduce freq. specific time errors. If the peq does not have adj. Q then that blows.... thats what a peq is all about!

I have an 8445 eclipse . Let me get this straight. It will only accept a 128 stick? And does it have to be a "MG"? And will it read MP3 files and play them?
Sorry, just want to get my facts straight before I buy a stick and card reader
Thanks

IIRC only a 128 yes. And it will not read Mp3's. It must be a MG style card.

It has adjustable q now that I am playing with it. I just wanted the ability to run 24db/oct. I usually run 18db anyways as the tans between sub and midbass is usually better IMO... Anyways beat, the deck is installed, come check it out anytime this week. I work in Tempe. Loving it so far after I have learned how to use it.
