Re: Alpine 7998 x Clarion DRZ9255 (the new) x Eclipse 8454
i love my 9255. i used to own a 8053, and after getting the 9255, i noticed a difference in the sound ( a good difference). i got my 9255 for a good price from my local dealer, but i dont think i could have bought it at the retail price ($1400). the 8454 has a lot of similar features, and its hard to beat for the price.
if you can get the 9255 for a good deal less than $1400, or you have no problems dropping the dough on it, go ahead, i'm sure you will love it. otherwise, go for that 8454, its a superb deck with tons of features.
