    Ugh, back into the same dilemma as b4...

    Ive had my 8445 for some time now. I got it in the fall (october maybe). and in december, the display started cutting out. well when i bought it (from Good Vibes in Horsham, pa), the owner told me it'll have a 3 year warranty and that if i ever have a problem, hell do a direct exchange at the shop for a brand new one. well when i encountered this first problem, he "didnt have any 8445's in stock". so i gave him mine and he was gonna try to get eclipse to do an advanced sale, so id have a replacement in days. i managed to get him to give me a loner, but it was a total POS old nak deck from 1912 and the preouts were totally ****ed. well 3 weeks later i finally got my **** deck back. and now, just a couple weeks ago, this brand new deck starts **** too. first it started randomly jumping into auxilary mode. then it started skipping like crazy on every cd (even freshly burned ones). and sometimes it would just completely stop playing, but the counter would continue to incriment. i watched it count to 10 minutes one time on a 3 minute song. and this is all after it worked flawlessly for a couple months. so anyways, i go back to good vibes yesterday and tell them. and theyre total dickheads at first. but then the owner starts with the "im on your side" bs. but whatever. well he says they dont make the 8445 anymore...ok i figured that since the new lines out. so i just had to send it in for repair (despite the fact that when i bought it he said he take care of it). well i told them im not going through with that bullshit again. and he said he could try to argue with eclipse to get me a credit. and i think that meant ill get my money back...well at least thats how he made it sound. so im thinkin if that happens, im gonna stay away from eclipse. maybe i just had bad luck, i dunno, but im **** sick of this. so my dilemma is what HU to get.

    ive posted a thread or 2 about this b4. i want a HU with high V preouts, 24bit DAC, mp3 playback, and some way to pause it, not mute. my eclipse didnt have a pause option, but the power button worked just the same. it turned on and off quickly (unlike pioneers). sorry about the little rant in this thread. so, any suggestions?

    99% chance you won't notice a difference. Preout voltage will only make a difference on where you have to set your gains at.
