    need advice on these units

    I'm trying to upgrade my sound while keeping costs under control

    I'm looking at these units to couple with Sirius:
    Eclipse CD5425 $259
    Pioneer 7700 $229
    Alpine 9847 $169

    The Alpine is almost $100 less then the Eclipse - is this the right model to compare?
    Any reason to pick 1 over the other? Which specs are truly important to compare?

    Is this enough of an upgrade or should I be aiming higher?
    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    and uglier and retarded to use.

    as far as the alpine [wich i like better than recent offerings from pioneer and eclipse] i would go with this one for the front\rear\sub outputs and deadsexy looks.

    No Eclipse fans out there?

    Or is the cd5425 not a good eclipse unit?

    Nothing wrong with that eclpise model. That pioneer 770 from what I have heard is a beauty! Lots of features.

    Eclipse will school all of the models that you have listed. From the non clipping high voltage low impedence preouts to the superior warranty / theft deterrent coupled with ease of use, it is hands down a winner. Out of the box it will deliver superior tonal response without need for equalization. If you are a person who spends you money wisely, do it right the first time and buy the Eclipse.



    Yeah, whatever

    Wow, $259 US, we sell them for $290.00 CDN, pricing has really dropped in Canada this year.
