Maybe JVC is not making their own deck either.......perhaps they both are coming out of the same build factory. I doubt that the internals are going to be the same but if you have both of them, take them apart and post the pics.

First off
*thanks for posting this thread in the Black Void...that's professinal!

I have heard the same comment from dealers, but no one offers free shipping both ways for any warranty issues. And of course I have no idea who builds what etc. But the CD1000 is a price point piece with alot of "eclipse" features that are not available. Cheers!

Its just wierd that a company who's name is so respected, and has built there reputation on higher end products would lower there standards. The new deck looks cheap. Im worried in 5 years we'll be talking about how great eclips was. Lets hope they dont take the same path as rockford.
And just incase your wondering, the JVC 300 series face fits but doesnt work.( the sales staff couldnt resist)
With fuj-ten huge manufacturing ability they should be able to make there own decks.
maybe next year macintosh will get audiovox to poop out some entry level decks for them, and maybe they wont look like crap

purely from a sales perspective.... now our customers can have the eclipse name in their car without paying the eclipse prices. thats pretty much the only good point i can come up with for the cd1000. other than that it really doesnt stand out much.

Now that Eclipse is in bed with the big box, when the big box can control the manufacturer, bad things happen. In 5 years time, Eclipse will also have succumbed to the control of the big box when they chose to put 95% of their eggs into the big boxes basket. Nice way to build a line off the backs of the indipendents. Mind you I wonder what great new line we can replace Eclipse with for the next 10 years....... Eclipse had a 10 year plan for the indies, perhaps the indies should have had a 10 year plan for Eclipse.

If there is one thing that 20 years in this industry has shown me, it's not to beleive one word of what a manufacturer or distributor says. "FS will not budge on the pricing of the CD5425 from $349.00". Next week, it is on sale for $329.00 installed. One week after that, "FS will not have free install on the CD5425", right then so why was it on sale again with free install. One week later again here it is again for $299 installed yet "I don't know Rob, I know the buyer for FS and he guaranteed me that this would not happen". So whom is the liar, the buyer, the manufacturer (who could care less), the distributor (who did nothing) or my rep (who only passed along what he heard).

So looking into my well known and highly reliable crystal ball, I don't believe a word in your second paragraph that you just wrote Richard, no offence intended (and in no reflection of the job that you do either). This phrase has been around longer than most people have been in retail and while it may fool some of the younger people, the old dogs know better. Lets revisit this same topic in 2 years and 5 years and see exactly what has happened, should make a interesting discussion.
