    well i wouldn't for that model eclipse, but if you swap it for a 8454, 8053, or 8443. i went from an 8600 to my 8443 and i'm very happy i did. the pioneer was great, but the 8443 was even greater.

    Well if you do end up going ahead with that, I want first dibs on that Pioneer of yours.

    If the Pioneer Unit you have does what you need it to without issue; then there's really not a need to change.


    Upgrading without specific purpose is just throwing money away foolishly.....

    You could probably sell the 860 for enough to cover the eclipse, so if you want a different deck, and you like the eclipse better, might as well.

    In your case, you'd likely be better off looking into speakers or processing of some type.

    Your current HU really is a pretty decent product. Plenty of power, user options, tuning options, and versatility.


    I'd personally keep it for now.

    the only way i would trade that deck is if it was for an eclipse 8454/8443/8053 and not a 5444. to me it seems like you are downgrading by going to the 5444.
