    I see no differences between the Excelons 05 to 06
    Usually when they get the inventory of the 06s
    they usually discount the 05s close to Egay prices
    Keep a whatchfull eye

    The faceplate colors on the 899/890. Also the 890 has a USB port. I liked the other one because it had sirius/hd built in.

    I feel I am stuck with the pioneer for this reason. I have the pioneer xm tuner because that terk is a POS. Since only pioneer uses Ip-BUS, I am stuck with pioneer.

    I use TERK adapters and never had an issue -
    I missed the USB port,what would a USB do in a car?

    From Crutchfield's Product Description of the KDC-X890:
    " Plug your thumb drive, portable hard drive, card reader, or any other USB device into the USB input on the KDC-X890 and hit play. The radio will display artist names and track information right on the faceplate, and the USB connection will even supply power to your compatible player."


    Crutchfield's prices are stupid expensive
    Their prices are generally at or near MSRP but the service you receive from Crutchfield is second-to-none. Tough to beat a 30-day, No Questions Asked returns policy as well. Own it for 4 weeks then decide you don't like something as simple as the colors of the buttons or the way the trim ring sits against your dash - call 'em up, get an RMA#, send it to 'em, and get a full (no percentage taken out for "restocking") refund.

    All the install accessories they send you for free if your purchase is above a certain dollar amount is a really nice touch, too.

    Re: new excelon untits?

    One thing I am confused about, however....

    (and it is simply due to my not having heard of them before)

    Is a Wolfson DAC supposed to be considerably better than the Burr-Brown DACs??
