    Re: Eclipse website has been updated

    i look at the specs on the decks and theyre so awesome, and then i look up at the picture and it saddens me. i much preferred the older looks. for specs that good they should have an equally good appearance.

    Re: Eclipse website has been updated

    of course the most expensive one would look good.

    I agree though. If I were to buy a new one, I would take the 8455 or the 8445.

    but they look like bunghole compared to mine.




    Don't PM me, I'm not here. Find me on SSA or ROE
    No, I won't re-upload the Big3 pictures. Don't ask.

    Re: Eclipse website has been updated

    the 8445/8455 look is growing on me by the day...specially after seeing it in a dash...

    I think its funny because I recall the last gen series Eclipse get the same type of criticism... and on its way out, everybody picks one up. Thats been the trend as far as I recall....

    Re: Eclipse website has been updated

    I am planning on upgrading to the 8445. The looks are growing on me as well. At first it reminded me of a Jensen or JVC But they are starting to look better to me.

    Re: Eclipse website has been updated

    I think the 2003 and 2004 models looked cheesy, with the baby-blue illumination and all, and I own one (8443). The 2005, in my opinion, look for better though I can't figure out why they ditched the rubber knobs - the new ones appear to be the same exact size and not only less funtional, tactile-wise, but also aesthetically inferior. Another member had the idea of ordering some of the rubber ones of old and swapping 'em out - wonder how easy that'd be?

    According to my dealer's Eclipse Rep, the company saw two issues with the last series controls:
    The rubber knobs would wear (thus not so nice aesthetically) and and with the added grip it would cause calibration issues(lag from constant excessive spinning)- so they decided to put a more solid knob.
    I actually like it beter.

    Well, Max, you're the one who has used the unit so clearly you, not I, know how the knobs feel; however, I say that those are a couple pretty weak reasons that Eclipse would use as to why they would no longer use the rubber. I have experienced the lag you are talking about, but during *normal* use (as long as I am not rapid-fire cranking), I have no issues whatsover w/my 8443.

    And the knobs "wearing?" No way... I've had mine for two years, knobs look like new, and I have used my unit excessively. Cool, though, that you like the new knobbers.

    Btw, the old Eclipses -- from way, way back -- have all used rubber knobs and there were no problems...

    Hey I dug the grip of my 8443, i had no excessive wear either. But according to the rep there were alot of requests for new knobs on those units.The way older units did have rubber grips, but you have to agree the 8443/8053/8454 were way softer and had much more contact area..

    Not everyone has moist hands like you do Hoot
