Alpine PXA-H800

I cant even tell you how happy I am to see that Alpine has finally listened to reason and come out with an updated version of its famed H700/H701 processor! It looks like a sweet unit, I cant wait to get my hands on it and give it a serious listening to!

Yeah it's great to see that they're finally bringing back RoadEQ

I wonder if they'll let you strap two together like the PXA-H990s.

HM. It still seems to miss one of the best features of the BitOne: multiple auxilary inputs; and one major feature I personally want - direct CD changer control. Going to have to read an owners manual I think.

The article mentions a new RF 360.3. Need to check that out too I guess..

The 360.3, now that's a nice unit!
It's the only thing that comes with a built in RTA hehe. 31 bands of PEQ per channel... that thing is amazing.

I'm looking forward to ARC piece instead. The rockford piece was probably delayed another year after the release of the bitone and they saw all the features it had.

Guys keep in mind your processor won't make everything better. So don't expect the world with the H800 frankly I'm expecting it to be almost the same as the H700/701 or a new set plagued problems.

Wow thats very optimistic thinking there Julian, but I know your feelings on Alpine gear.

I see no mention of support via a double din deck ala W205/505 with the 701. Could alpine really be takin a step back and only allowing support via a stupid single din controller? Having to use a single din controller just for the processor is a bad idea imo.

And whats the arc processor i keep seeing you mention jullian... im about to get rid of my 505/701 combo for a better double din and was leaning on ms8 for processor.

From what I read (sorry I can't remember where I read it.) there will be "limited on-deck functionality" if you don't want to use the single din controller.

I'm expecting it to be almost the same as the H700/701 or a new set plagued problems.
Given Alpine's lack-luster recent history, I'd bet it's still going to be below F#1 stuff in terms of processing power.
