I know i will probably get ran out of here for asking this but which one do u guys think would be the better double din. I know it will probably be the eclipse hands down, just needed some opionions before i make the final decision. Although the eclipse has navigation (which i rarely use), It doesn't have 24 bit D/A converter or 12 bit video converter or even a remote for that matter. And the jvc does have the detachable face, a feature that i really like. So what do you guys think?

Two shops around me stopped carrying Eclipse because of quality problems. I know my last and only Eclipse CD8454 (which was a high end unit when it came out) stopped reading CD's after 2 years. I was considering the JVC for my new system for same reasons you are. Just did not want to spend that much on a HU.

mine isn't a DD though. it's a flip out. and i cant say anything about the eclipse, but the JVC will not let you down.

Eclipse makes some amazing head units, yes they had a couple of bad products over the years like all companies have but the GPS NAV units that you are mentioning are top notch. I would take one of them over a JVC any day of the week. You will go far further in your system in the long run.
