Heh, I would have thought that would have been the last. Is it the price? Are they all like extremely similar?

Anyone else have opinions?

Eclipse. i went from a pioneer 8600 to an eclipse 8443. the eclipse is a great deck. i read on another forum that someone tested the preouts for it, and they did not clip, even at full volume. they also tested around 8.3 volts rms. the pro mode on the eclipse is also nice. i only paid $200 shipped for my 8443 :p:

I had a pm all wrote for you and cancelled it because I thought of something, am I going to have to pay duties and taxes on this? lol. Anything that comes to canada it's about an Extra 20 bucks to every 100 because of Duties and Taxes... Unfortunatly.. :(

Duties certainly aren't exclusive to Canada. How close to the US border are you?
