    What you you think of Clarion decks?

    Trying to narrow down my choices for a new deck...

    The specs on Clarion decks look pretty good, the ProAudio ones DRZ-955, DRZ-945 and DRZ-855 - 24 bit DAC, 4v preouts, CeNET central control, DSP w/ time alignment...and they are heavily discounted on ebay.

    But man do they look bizarre, all except the DRZ-9255 which is out of my price range. Not sure I could get used to it. Also, the controls look tiny and clumsy to use.

    I can get used to bizarre styling for great SQ though, anyone who has one or hs used one, what do you think of them?

    I have the 855 coming; will be here tomorrow. If it *****, I'll let y'all know. Should be a major change from the CDA-9835 I had in the old car.

    I think you touched on the only downside of a Clarion, the looks. The button size isn't very bad at all....at least not to an Eclipse user like me.

    tight I have been waiting for some one to review on of these

    why not the 955mc though?/

    seems like it has the screen but better processing abilities

    wither cant wait for the review

    I keep thinking any company that can make the drz9255 muxt knwo how to make a nice deck


    im looking at either the

    1)kenwood xxv-01d
    2)clarion dxz955mc
    2)alpine 9860/h701 combo



    havent made the final decision yet

    I'm going with outboard processing. Going to be using a 5 band fully parametric EQ at the minimum. The Music Catcher part wasn't worth an extra $100+ to me.
