Re: eclipse headunits. 8053vscd5000
Going with the Cd5000 will give you the things you mentioned, but you will loose the the manual time alignment function. The CD5000 has a simplified version that's based on car type & speaker location. So basically you will have preset values. As for the remote, it's pretty much useless on the later eclipse units as they are very slow to respond. Having said that, it is still a very nice SQ unit.
