Thank you Techno. According to a local broker, he said a 2001 esteem goes for a lac. Then he saw the car. The quote went up by 20k. But thats about it. Lol

Frank's Car Price before broker saw it = Rs. 1,00,000.00
Price of Car after broker saw it with Music System + Aloys etc = Rs. 1,20,000.00

So at max cost of Frank ICE estimated in the market = Rs 20,000.00



Just kidding Frank. Congrats on the all new syzygy HU

syzygy is a kind of unity, especially through coordination or alignment, most commonly used in the astronomical and/or astrological sense.

But when FRANK uses it, its in the sense of ICE meaning unity of his current 20K system with a 40K HU from Eclipse through the co-ordination of finances.

IB setup stands for ISSObaric setup

There are a few members on the forum who run IB setups. Bhagwans Swift DDiS / i10 has an IB setup AFAIK.

I thought IB meant Infinite Baffle.
Or is it Isobaric meant here?

Man! This thread is like watching a soap opera.

My Setup is not IB, The woofers are mounted in a sealed enclosure. Flying Bong has an IB Setup in his Cedia.

By the Way, Congrats Frank for a great choice of HU, haven't heard it yet, Abhinav is busy these days. But I am sure will take your setup to the next level.

Once here do post a complete review, It would be great to read and compare the 9887 and the 7200MKII.

Oops my bad.
I'll be free next week Manan.
How about next saturday?

Also Frank, i tried putting the songs in that data / sound folder.
Did not work. The list still shows half names.
The one when the song plays though shows the file name without even putting it in Data / Sound Folder.

Oh i've been reading a lot on a million forums around the world and not a single person has compared the two units properly. Since my entire setup will remain the same this time, it will be a great time to compare the two. Anyways the equalization and other crap is going to be flat, just like the defeat mode in alpines. This will be very helpful in gauging how much better the 7200 is over the 9887 (or vice versa, god forbid). Thanks for the compliment. I absolutely loved your setup manan!

Karan and Zak are right.

Dont google use your ears. You will have both the 9887and 7200 to play with on your system with your music so use this opportunity and do not get any pre-conceived notions about what the system should sound like from google.

yes navinji. i was speaking of the issue where the USB stick shows only 3-4 letters of the file name truncated by a ~.mp3 on the display. there sure is a work around for that but the people at Fujitsu Ten believe that beating around the bush and working your way up is the best way to get good SQ (for eg: the subwoofer control is called the non fader control!). lol.
their manual says nothing about it. anyways, i need to get the head unit in my hands and im quite sure i'll be able to get it right in a few days of use.
as far as the quality is concerned, i havent heard the 7200 in the same setup as the 9887, but i definitely have heard the 7200 on illusion speakers and i love the way it sounds. so ya, waiting for my unit.


THERE IS A SURPRISE. QUITE A BIG ONE AT THAT.
I GUESS I SHALL UNFOLD IT ONLY WHEN IT ARRIVES.
