    Eclipse Vs Alpine

    i proudly own an eclipse cd3000 and not so proudly, an alpine 9855. i only picked up the 9855 cuz the eclipse doesnt have a pause button, which i found out was very important...(being dq'ed in the final round at a 3x for bassrace and then having to wait 15 seconds just for it to play the song at the next show) Well i put the alpine in today and i have to say, its complete ***, when compared to the eclipse on sound quality and control....i messed around and did a few burps with it and i could hear nothing but lost db's, i dont think this unit is that good at all, i dont know if its because its so user friendly or because it just ***** that bad when compared to the sq of the eclipse......i dont know what to do, i need to run something for comps, but not the ****** 9855, any suggestions????????

    Did the CD3000 come with a remote? My pioneer doesn't have a pause button, but the remote does.

    no it doesnt come with a remote, its optional for the 3000, but they use the same remotes as the rest of the line and they do not have a pause on it either

    Thats weird Eclipse doesnt have a pause anymore. I have had 4 eclipse decks and they all had a pause, you just have to know where it is. Check on higher model eclipse decks for pause. Or go to older line like 8454, 8053 models.

    I would have to disagree. I have an 9855 in my car right now. Sounds great. My only issue with it is the glide touch. Other than that it great.

    Nobody's heard them. They aren't in production yet. There is no prototype even available. But he should still consider them. They will rock. I promise.
