Clarion 9255 returns!!!
i spoke to a friend that works at a local car audio shop, he called me up and gave me some interesting clarion news.
they got the new 2004 clarion documentation (sorry, they didn't get a price sheet yet). he said they have a 9255 like deck, it has dual 20bit burr brown DAC's, copper plated chassis, high volt outs (he forgot how many volts), time alignment, not satelite ready and no mp3, so i guess its a pure SQ deck, sounds good (and expensive).
the 935VD (the dvd player) carries over with no major changes, but there is a new video unit, the 945VD, its basically a 935VD, but has no external stow-away piece (i guess its all built it?) and the screen resolution is higher.
the DXZ935 gets a facelift, it has a touch screen now and i believe mp3 capabilities.
the DXZ835 (now the 845) can record a couple hundred minutes of music, i dont know whether it rips the music from cd's or what, but it has a small hard drive or something inside.
it sounds like some cool stuff, i can't wait until it comes out to see for myself, but i think i will still buy that eclipse 8053, though that 9255 remake is tempting (maybe i can sell an organ so i can afford it )
