6 letters to be precise Frank.
The thing is getting to the balance, fader and non fader control is very very simple. Even simpler than pioneers.

Surprise?
Big one?
Planning to make the cost of ICE double than the car?

thats something nice to hear. i was reading online the other day, that the 7200MKII is the simplest ever eclipse HU to use! surprising for an Eclipse! using the 9887 feels like learning greek in comparison, says a person who has used both.

yea. but an innovative way to 'increase' the cost of the ICE. selling the engine and the wheels, which will effectively TRIPLE the cost of the ICE

Stop spamming or I will reveal your games to your Dad. Muhahahahahaha!

And, only you have the license to use nitrous oxide (not NOS, but the anaesthetic variety) - so why are you asking others to 'gas'? Look at what you have done here. Why didn't you give Abhay the full dose of NO2? Do your job completely otherwise we will get your practising license cancelled. Nausikhiya dantachikitsak!

Aha! Frank, good to see you had the same thing as I did in mind

My 5 cents:
1) It is an Amp.
2) What Panky said above is correct.
3) The model (not the make) name starts with 'R': R***.
4) Google is my friend.
5) I think Frank has robbed a bank (OR I should have taken up dentistry as a profession).

Congrats!

Yay! Frank's puzzle is cracked!

What an apt mate for the 7200!

Now only if Frank would be generous enough to donate his existing ICE to me.

this is not a clue. this is ONE more thing.

so the list shows like this, as of now:
1. Eclipse CD7200MKII Head Unit
2. Surprise 1: Apparently a component speaker, or an amplifier, or a set of power cables and interconnects.
3. Surprise 2: hardly a surprise, you can tell from the pictures.

here, we go!
