    You can't be hung up on a ton of features if you are going with the 9255(this is PerryB from SD, btw).

    dude, the 9255 has a 5 band parametric EQ, 4 way Xover, time alignment for each channel, i mean come on, thats a lot of features. also has the dual 24 bit burr brown DAC's, copper plated chassis, gold plated preouts with OFC cables, vacuum florescent display. the only thing simple about this deck, is the looks
    while it falls short of features found in the 8053, it makes up for it in other ways.
    come on perry, you should know this

    I knew it had some features, but still not a TON of features like somebody who loves features would be happy with.. I have never felt that more features necessarily means better sound anyway(though many seem to think that it does). The 8053 that I have now just happens to have alot of features, but I don't really use many of them at all(deck is set flat, for example).

    The 8053 doesn't have a copper chassis, but I believe it is listed as having gold plated RCAs. The local shop sells clarion as well as eclipse. The ONLY clarion they have ever mentioned in the same breath as eclipse when it comes to sq is the old 9255. I will be interested to hear the new one.

    yea, i noticed that the 8053 sounded great right out of the box when compared to my 835mp, so i'm also interested in how the 9255 sounds, but even with the 835mp, i wasnt dissappointed after i fooled around with the settings a bit (the parametric eq made it easy to adjust for me).

    I'll have to check out some local shops see what they suggest. i've looked and i was wonderin if someone could rank the following for how good they would be for my needs: alpine 9831, alpine 9813, and the eclipse cd3434.
