if it helps... Eclipse IMO is the best audio company on the market today for car stereos. i worked at an audio store for about 2 years and the one thing im thankful for is my Eclipse deck. sounds cheesy but its the best performing player ive ever seen for the money. that goes for any and every Eclipse series out there. very user friendly, great power and sound, and the fact its made directly in Japan is a definite plus. i wouldn't trade it for anything else other than a better Eclipse hehe.
and the fact that it has the anti-theft device is just flawless. i cant get over how well Eclipse treats its customers. 2 year warrenty on anything you buy from them, and its a A+ at that. anyways happy sales, and remember if your upgrading... stick with ECLIPSE!!
