    cleanest sounding head unit?

    been away from the game for a while, and was wondering if anyone can give input as to which head unit is the cleanest and clearest sounding, im leaning towards the eclipse cd 5000 or the CD8445 which u can get cheap on ebay , any recommendations?

    Great choices. What is your budget and what are you using it for.

    I personally own a cd8445 and love it.

    As long as you don't plan on running active the 8445 is a great choice. Has enough settings to please almost anyone with it's Xover's, time correction, and 7 band EQ.

    One of the better units I have used.

    That's not actually an "eD" headunit.

    It's a Russian headunit, by the manufacturer Ural.....eD just happens to be organizing a group buy and acting as a distributor for Ural at the moment.

    That russian HU. Goofy indeed, but settings up the wazzu!

    No not active Xovers. It has a LPF/HPF that cuts off @ the set frequency. IIRC 69hz, 80hz, 100hz, 150hz, 200hz.

    The main things I was interested were the 24-bit D/A converter and the 8V preamp output with a low 55 impedance rating.
