well from what i heard so far in terms of SQ Eclipse is slightly ahead of Alpine which is strongly ahead of Sony

 

i'd go with Eclipse if you want SQ (actually im thinking of replacing my Alpien for one)

 

im really getting disgusted with gains and bass issues in my alpine hu...:(

 

OMG YOU SAID THAT AGAIN!!!!!!

Depends which Sony...Old or new.

 

I personally would take Alpine out and replace it with Clarion.

 

Although Eclipse would still get my vote.

Go to your local dealer and purchase it. You should be able to pick up a 5435 in the ballpark of your budget.

Eclipse hands down by a land slide. I can say this b/c I have owned all three of the brands you have mentioned as well as others. IMO nothing can compete w/ Eclipse for sq. Overall I would say: Eclipse > Clarion > Alpine > Kenwood :cool:

I like my ecplise cd 8454. For $300, I would have bought a pioneer deh-p8600mp over that sony.

For some reason the phrase "screwed the pooch" comes to mind.
why do you say that????????that model has 7 band eq, 24bit+bass@treble remote and tilt angles which pioneer or eclipse didn't have well i'm happy!I know sony always brought my scrached c.d's back to life unlike my alpine h.u so i think that why i was leanen towards sony and the eclipse was nice but i didn't want to pay more$$$ for crap i'm not goin to use

you overlooked the shitiest part of that Sony, the xovers...

 

For that price you could of had a more capable all around deck IMO

 

But it sounds like u like it, good luck...
