    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).
    other news:
    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 )

    I thought you meant a lot of people were returning their 9255's.

    I think I'll keep with my DXZ835MP cause I like MP3s... don't really need the HD which I'm also sure would jack up the price. Recording a couple hundred minutes of music doesn't sound too great, a CD-R can do that easily, just maybe not as fast. I was tempted to buy the DXZ935 but the MP3 feature on the 835 really does it for me plus you can always buy the DSP for just about any model. Anyone know if the DPH910 works with my deck? Cause the DPH910 is last years model DSP, which only costs $50 on ebay and doesn't have 5.1 sound processing which I would never use or need.

    Redford, I'm thinking of getting a Clarion DXZ835MP.. How is the sound quality? Do Clarions have controls for the Bass and treble. I was playing with one at a store and couldn't find the control.

    the 835mp has a 3 band parametric EQ, its pretty decent, i think the SQ is good, i noticed a sound difference (a good sound difference) when i went from a pioneer deh-7400mp to the dxz835mp.

    Was gonna say that... Yeah it's a great deck though, I've had no problems with it and love the color changing part because I'm very picky. Had one of last years Kenwood decks, had a few minor problems (extreme cold and heat did stuff to it), but replaced it just because of aesthetic reasons.

    Re: Clarion 9255 returns!!!

    i saw what the new decks look like, the DRZ9255 looks like the old 9255, pretty simple, but nice looking. doesn't play mp3's, but has denon like features (99% silver pre outs or something like that). if that deck was cheap (i'm assuming its over $1000), i would buy it, but i can't at $1000. also, the deck has only 4 volt pre outs, but i guess that doesn't matter much since other high end brands (like nak and denon) only have 4 volts or so also.
    the 945MP (the 935 successor) is wierd looking. it has a touch screen display, and the features are like the 935, but now it also plays mp3's, but i bet when most of you see it, you'll look at it say "what the hell?", its really goofy looking.
    the 845mc does recording, i didn't read where it says how its recording, but you have HQ mode, which records 265minutes of music off a cd, or LP mode which will record somethink like 350 minutes. it records it in WMA mode, i guess because they are smaller in size than a similar mp3 file.
    the new clarion stuff looks ok, the 845mc seems intriguing, the 945mp looks odd, but really, the only thing i'm interesting in seeing is the DRZ9255.
