    Eclipse CD5000 on Ebay

    This thread no longer about that exact ebay offer.

    Thread has converted into a CD5000 (hifi Audio) vs CD7000 on ebay comparison.

    Thank you.

    Here are the 2 items.

    if the item you buy is not how it was described when you receive it you can file a claim wich could result in a refund and if your lucky you can keep the product to!

    It has DSP sound processing builtin thats near equal with Alpine's outboard $500 h701, and the CD7000 has a detachable face, which I dont believe the CD5000 had.

    Indoaudio has a less than stellar reputation around here, you might do a search to see what many people think of them.

    There's a big difference in the controls on these newer models, Any input on how the compare to the older control layout?

    Re: Eclipse CD5000 on Ebay

    I kind of like the CD5000s looks. Is the CD7000 a really nice upgrade?

    Been reading up on the two models, and I think I like the 5000 better. $50 cheaper is great too. Unless someone can convince me by sunday, I'm going to order the 5000.

    Re: Eclipse CD5000 on Ebay

    I have a CD7000 that I haven't installed yet. But I did use the CD8445, which looks to be basically the same as the CD5000. Nice HU's but has some quirks that bothered me. Mainly these:
    - remote's volume up/down button verrrrry slow. when you hold it down, the volume moves each notch at about 1/2 second intervals
    - this problem is compounded by the faceplate volume knob, which is small and difficult to grip
    - track up/down knob on faceplate is way too sensitive, you end up skipping a track or two more than you intended. This can be remedied by using the remote.
    - when faceplate drops down to insert cd, it swings out and down about 2 inches, so make sure you have adequate clearance below and in front of the unit.\
    - signal processing, like time delay and eq aren't as adjustable as the CD7000 or Alpine's units.

    I would maybe go with the CD7000/7100 or one of the latest Alpine units.

    Isn't it the CD7000 that does the drop down like that? I thought the CD5000 just tilted a bit, like the old 5405-5435s.

    Also I can't get an alpine, my car won't fit fold down units.

    Actually, both the 7000 and the 5000 drops down.
