first of all thanks to all the guys for their great input.if u want all the latest features like great screen ,rpm meter in hu,voltage meter,aux in without adapter,latest s10.5 cd mechanism ,guys go for 8850 and if u want sound and some good features go for the 8650.i am not saying 8850 sounds bad it is a great hu but i tried them both with same settings and guess what 8650 rocks despite being a 2004-05 model it has more depth than 8850 ,hell the 20k eq doesn't even make any diff .i made my decision and went with 8650.my hu has feb 2006 mfg date i guess pio must have discontinued the model little time ago

Do You Have OEL Screensaver Studio To Make LKA Files ?
You Have To Write Only One LKA File To Cd, But You Can Make It Multisession Disc.

Hope This Will Help..

Cheers,

Dont take it personally man... I just meant its not what I think you have in mind. I could be wrong... Normally, I would only suggest the HX-D2 to someone who has (or is going to) invested heavily into his other equipment like speakers, amps, subs, cables etc., and someone who doesnt want bright lights, graphics, fancy EQ, unnecessary processing etc. and someone whos eventual goal is SQ. I was NOT talking about the price bro...

aZa, I know for a fact Driven is a Kenwood dealer and he's selling them with B&W for 17k, which in my opinion makes the 8529 one of the best sounding units in this price range. Ask SK456, he heard one in his car...

Ahh... the 8650... I still like this unit for some reason... It served me well. The 8650 is in fact supposed to have better BBs than the 8850 simply cuz the 8850 is in fact the 7850 in some parts of the world, only in Asia it is called the 8850... If you can hear the difference then I must say you have good ears.

But let me warn you here, nearly ALL the 8650 I have seen (including the one I owned) had random problems with CDs getting stuck and not being ejected properly...

my veer i never took it personally i have heard great things abt clarion and had a player many yrs ago and it was greater than pio. i was curious about the model you have so i asked .also my indica doesn't deserve a audiophile clarion model like u have.the problem in 8650 is s10.1 cd mechanism they have a bigger tray that pushes the cd down and s10.5 in 8850 which has a smaller one.but i always prefer sq over asthetics and on t bhp sq rules
