    Alpine 7998 x Clarion DRZ9255 (the new) x Eclipse 8454

    Hello, i'm new in the forum and i'm from Brasil!

    I currently have a Alpine 7998, and I'm thinking about buying a Clarion 9255... Does this player can be compared to the realy hi-end players like the Nakamichi CD700ii? The 9255 seems to be the only hi-end player that have tice correction. Or, the Eclipse 8454, it is better than the Alpine? I'm talking about Audio Fidelity. Thanks Guys!

    PS: Where i can find the Eclipse 8454 in San Francisco?

    I Know about all the DRZ9255 and Eclipse 8454 features. But, in terms of Sound Quality, wich one have better audio fidelity? I tryed to search in a lot of foruns but i didn't found a comparision about DRZ9255 and 8454.

    I would take the clarion or the eclipse over the alpine.

    As for Eclipse in SF, call 800-55-eclipse, and you will be automatically connected to the nearest dealer. IF that doesn't work, call Eclipse(800-233-2216) and ask for a dealer in your area.

    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.

    Thanks for the help Slick. I found the 9255 for U$850 somewhere in the internet. But, my only doubt is if its sounds better than the Eclipse 8454. I Dont know wich one have a cleaner sound. And I can't do wrong because i'm in Brazil... Whe don't have these players here..
