not the best(could be) but your favorite, just really curious

this is mine not that its the best by anymeans, but for sheets and giggles i looked it up, and it is actually pretty decent, ended up buying a new one for $80 just to play with again.

reason i didn't get the p99rs is it has high mid, low mid, and subwoofer pre outs, i called and there is no way to run front rear sub, so it limits the tuning options, and i would need another speaker amp.

Been through a lot of them, but the one I love the most is the Kenwood KDC-X592. 4 volt outputs, huge amount of options, defeats the Ipod EQ when hooked up to the USB, and one button access to the subwoofer levels. Never had a problem out of her.

Every Eclipse I have had hates me (display goes out, cd player goes out, aux input goes out, etc.), but I still will choose an Eclipse over anything else. Pico fuses annoy the **** out of me so no Pioneers, I hate the button layout and interface on Alpines, and Kenwoods just don't sound as good as any Eclipse I've had. I think I keep coming back to Eclipse just because they sound better, plain and simple. I've preferred the sound quality from any Eclipse I've owned over my 9855.

Yep. Love the user interface and reliability, but the sound quality is meh at best. They are my favorite budget decks.

I've had Alpine, Clarion, Eclipse, Pioneer, JVC, Sony, Jensen, the list goes on...I've had well over 50 decks. I have yet to try Mcintosh, Denon, or Rockford. I'm hoping my next deck will be a Denford :)

I can't stand using CD's and I love the ability of just pluggin in my ipod on the go and not having to worry about anything. Plus if I find new songs I don't need to burn more CD's. With that being said I'd rather take a headunit geared for just ipod's rather than a headunit that is sort of all around, because they more than always lack something that the other has.

V1- MSRP $3500, no lap top
V2- MSRP $8500, this version come with the lap top to set it up

Managed to get my hands one, finally after 14 yrs of looking. Found some, just never had the $$. When the 4th one reared its head, I had the $$. YEA!!!

I am limited to only a couple HUs. My buddy gave me his pioneer p860. It was nice. I liked it and it sounded good but I want a usb input. I am replacing it with a 7200 MKII. I haven't installed it yet since I am still debating on the rest of the system. I am glad some people like it. My other is a pioneer 3800 dvd touch screen. It looks good and works fine but the eq is lacking alot.

All around my favorite one I've owned was the 1st gen Rockford Fosgate CD player. Close behind was my first Jensen in dash DVD player (don't laugh, the picture was excellent and it had 5.1 channel surround, 2 aux inputs, and was an all around fun unit for movies and games)

what I find funny is if that headunit was gutted and had cheap parts in it to fit a screen it would be ''worth'' 1200.

Tis a shame just cus it comes with a screen it's worth more. It's really hard to find a quality deck these days, gotta go used. My problem is for my new one I have to have bluetooth, so I can't get any that are that old, and I still gotta find one that's quality. I find myself always coming back to an Eclipse.

Agreed, and agreed. :laugh: I like the vacuum tube Panasonic, Denon/DenFord/Fosgate head units. Very old school 70/80's hifi home theater looking. :)

My favorite was the Eclipse CD8051. I actually still have it but it's giving me the Error 3 (misaligned laser I think). I'd love to get it fixed but then I'd be paranoid about someone breaking into my car for it. Should probably just sell her :(

Googling an image for this guy made me feel REEEEEEEEALLLY OLD

I miss my Nakamichi TD-400.. That deck could play any tape in any condition to the very end.

I'd have to say my Pioneer 800PRS is my favorite. I've tried out a bunch of other HUs in my car but none of them seemed to provide the type of sound my Pioneer does. I do really like my 9855 that I run in my Jeep too. I've tried a bunch of Kenwoods (345, 693, 994 and a couple others), other Alpines (9807, 9827, 9835, 9853, 9847, 7825), other Pioneers (a handful of older, lower end models I can't remember), and a couple of Sonys (a couple of lower end models I don't remember).

my dream unit was always the Alp 7909 but never could afford them. Real life it was a between my Eclipse 5303 and the eclipse 8454. The 5303 sounded way better but just didnt have the features. The 8454 does everything you want your head to do, but just didnt sound as clean as my 5303. Honestly if I could find a clean way to get a 5303 to use ipod, I would find another one.

Out of what ive used personally, My vote goes to the 800prs. I had a 860mp color and a 800mp that i also liked but the prs blew them out of the water. As far as double dins go im loving my x920bt, i had an eclipse 5495 with the hdd but it was such a crappy interface.
