You see, if you buy something with a bill ad warranty and it's a fake, you can go to the cops and the consumer court. But without paperwork, you cant even prove you bought it...so

There are only authorised Pioneer service centres in India. It is a company decision to support and stick to the grey market only. If you ever see a Pioneer advertisement, you will never see a showroom address, only service centres. Wierd way of doin business.

many companies do this sort of business. it is shady and i think it is really unfair. one reason I dont recommend Pio. Wont untill they appoint and back up authorised dealers.

1. you sell a system (and pretend you did not)
2. you offer no warranty hence any poor workmanship does not cost you
3. you earn from service but if you cant fix something you can always claim it was official
i can go on......

Hi Folks

Just to let you know all that I have bought Sony CDX-F5710. I managed to convince my dad that we do not need a cassette player as well. But not before he made me promise him that I would convert any of his cassettes to CDs

I installed two 5.5 inch front speakers and two 6 inch rear ones.
The total amount I shelled out was Rs 10,000. I hope thats a fair deal....

moving cassette (or LP) to CD is not that easy. You need a good sound card.
one place for more info are the forums on Hydrogenaudio.org

Vivek do the guys selling you the stuff let you dig that deep. I dont know I have never entertained them.
They generally do not. In my case, I went with a couple of friends who knew the shopkeeper well. They went on and on with their small talk and I got a chance to get a good look from the slits in the side. My set looks good. Of course, I can never be completely sure. I just took a chance.

Thanks Navin. I'll have a look at it.

The one feature I like in the Sony audio I bought is the DSO feature. It simulates speakers as if they are fitted on the dashboard instead of being fitted lower in the door and the sound quality is absolutely amazing.

Hey shobhit15,
I concur. Useful feature.

Guys, the Sony 5610 (my set) has this frequency feature in the setup option. Something to do with noice cancel or likes... Do not have the manual in hand otherwise I would have given exact details - options are off/75 Hz/125Hz (if my memory serves me right - could be wrong).
What is this for and at what setting should I keep this?
Also during setup, there is an option to set the db for various settings. What is this for. The db stands for the good ole decibels, I presume and beyond that I can not make head or tails of this feature.
Pray guide the lost sheep!

Cheers

these look like SUB XO freq. or Low boost (if there is a db attached to this freq.).

Below is what the features are for:

High-pass Filter: The front and rear preamp outputs have a selectable high-pass filter that may be set to 78Hz, 125Hz, or off.

Low-pass Filter: The subwoofer preamp outputs have a selectable low-pass filter that may be set to 78Hz, 125Hz, or off.

I am becoming an auto guru, in another 6 months time this should become like car audio advice from sam, navin and aseem

Crossover (High-Pass Filter)
A built-in high-pass filter allows only frequencies above the crossover point to pass through. This filter may work with the speaker outputs, preamp outputs, or both.

Crossover (Low-Pass Filter)
A built-in low-pass filter allows only low frequencies to pass through. This filter may work with the speaker outputs (very rare), preamp outputs, or both.


So in your front and rear speakers you dont want to send low frequencies. As the front and rear speakers are not optimized to produce bass as a bass tube or woofer. So you dont allow such notes to be produced by them by choosing a frequency below which the signals are not sent to the speakeers.


Its opposite for the subwoofer. You dont want the woofer to try to produce treble or other notes and frequency that its not optimized for. So with your low pass filter you allow only low frequencies (bass) to goto the bass tube/woofer.

And never ever call yourself stupid again....
