    Is the Eclipse CD5000 any good?

    My Alpine CDA-7892 is on the fritz again and I'm sick of getting it fixed. I keep it only because it has time correction, which is a feature I like. I've noticed the CD5000 has this feature and I've heard the SQ of the Eclipse units is better than that of the Alpines. Is this true? Is there any reason I shouldn't consider this unit. I still haven't been able to find out if this unit will fit in my '99 Corolla though.

    I love the features on the CD5000 and CD7000. If you are **** like I am about not having a detachable faceplate then get the CD7000 or wait for the CD7100.

    Re: Is the Eclipse CD5000 any good?

    I personally don't use detachable faceplates, so that isn't an issue for me. My top priorites are as follows:

    Superb SQ

    8v preamps

    EQ and time correction

    and how can I find out whether or not it'll fit in my Corolla?

    Get the CD5000 right after the new 5100's hit the store, you should get a better deal then.

    Re: Is the Eclipse CD5000 any good?

    anyone know if the full specs on the 7100 have been released? *drools*
    edit: son of a *****, they went back to 8v preouts on the 7 and a usb input though it doesn't say if it will read mp3's or if we're still stuck with fvcking ATRAC3 support only :/

    Re: Is the Eclipse CD5000 any good?

    The 5000 has more than enough features for me, and it looks like I can get it for just a little over $200 on ebay. I don't see any reason for me to spend any more money for any of the other models unless they have better SQ, which I highly doubt.

    Re: Is the Eclipse CD5000 any good?

    The time alignment controls on the CD5000 are very limited, basically you get the preset values that Eclipse programmed it with. If that is of importance to you, I woul look to either the CD7000, or the CD7001. These units will give you the ability to control the TA on each individual speaker.

    First of all the 5100 and 7100 are hideous. Second of all it looks like Alpine isn't the only mfg cutting features. I can't believe Eclipse would put a NON adjustable time alignment feature on ANY deck. Worthless.

    Re: Is the Eclipse CD5000 any good?

    I believe that ever since Eclipse started using TA on their HU's, only the top unit had the adjustable version, the lower units had the preset versions. So this is not something that they took away....just was never there.
