    Good sounding HU for under $500 on ebay, what should I go with?

    Hey guys. I've been talkin to siome people that are sayin clarion isn't that great for sound quality. I've been looking at the DXZ855MP and was really intent on buying it, thinking it was a great sounding HU but what do you guys think? I like that it has the touch screen and would really like to get that. If you guys can suggest some HU's that are similar, preferably touch screen, I would appreciate it. I really like eclipse products but lately their HU's look like a$$ lol. any responses would be appreciated. thx

    PS. If this helps, I'm gunna be hooking up MB QUart PCE-216's to this HU til I get an amp for the speakers

    im not too sure on this, but i think alpine decks are known to have great SQ? they also have specific models with there "bass engine" feature too. they released a model that has that touch glide strip on it which is a nice feature as well

    and for 500, are you looking for just a mp3 deck or one with a built in screen?

    before you eBay it check out
    www.thezeb.com
    www.onlinecarstereo.com
    www.hookedontronics.com
    www.savingslot.com
    www.ikesound.com

    then www.ebay.com

    i think u should wait a month for the alpine 9855 to come out. since u want something unique, that thing is the first to have the glidetouch strip which would be pretty neato.

    haha, yea, I looked at ebay cuz it seemed that those were the cheapest prices I could find. I found the DXZ855MP on there now for like 370 plus shipping, thats unheard of. What's this toughglide thing you guys are talkin about?

    Yeah, I had a panasonic touchscreen. the whole "wow factor" was gone in about a week, replaced by the realization that the touch screen is more of a pain in the *** than anything. Its really inconvenient. I never realized how accustomed I was to knowing where buttons were located by feel, until I got the touchscreen. I wont do it again. Just something to consider.

    if you listend to the clarion and liked it then you should buy it. dont buy it because other people said it has bad SQ, because other people aren't going to be listening to it. but its always good to have options
