I have a couple of decks that I could use in my planned install but I was thinking of something simple, A deck with high voltage outputs and none of the fancy gimicks that are made usless by an EQ and a crossover.

Something in the price range of around $500 CAN$$

You can get an Alpine CDA-9833 for $475 (canadian) at A&B sound. At least that was the price when I got my deck. I didn't pay that though, my friend works there, and gave me a discount. You can get an Eclipse 3434 HU for $500 as well at A&B sound.

If you go and buy on the web, you can get the models for cheaper, but I don't think there is much better than it for that online. From there, you go into Alpine 7998, which is double the price :S

Buy the Eclipse, it is a stellar simple to use cd player. If you want some more info send me an e-mail, [email protected] and I'll be glad to help you out.

x2 Nakamichi. I'm running the CD-45z, which I think the CD-400 replaced. It's a beautiful sounding deck, looks stock in my car, and is very simple to operate while driving.

Nak 700 retails for around 1700 I think. The cd 400 is a lot cheaper, when I bought mine they were going for around $300 new on e-bay. Having used the cd-400 I would definitely suggest the rfx 8250 (http://www.cardomain.com/item/ROCRFX8250) over it.

I would have suggested that deck as well. Eclipse is another excellent choice.

Hey Rob. I have been around for a few weeks. School has started up again so I am back at work. Between work/taking a grad course, and the gym...just not as much time on the forums.
