Default Good Bye Eclipse we will miss you!

I got a press release today from our Eclipse rep and it reads that Fujitsu Ten will no longer be selling the brand Eclipse and is going to focus on the OEM market. This is a sad day for the SQ market as well as our shop that has been a dealer for 15 years strong and we will miss them very much. We were hoping for a strong showing at CES this year but I guess were just holding our breath. Good bye old friend! You will be missed!

So first it was Clarion who only have their dhin chak mass appeal HUs for their 2010 lineup with nothing of note after their DXZ785USB and now its Eclipse. Sad day indeed for feature laden SQ HU seekers.

They were known for their build quality, isn't it ? Sad day for SQ lovers

Heard the CD7200 MKII in fellow bhpians car - really a true blood SQ HU

looking at the brighter side - since their models will soon be out of circulation expect some drastic price drops

What Gill has mentioned, actually happend with the 785USB, IMHO atleast some models of Eclipse would demand a premium

the 7200 is already selling for double of what I bought it, BNIB. It's a gem for sure! The 5030 is a lacklustre effort, according to reviews online. I am yet to personally see another Eclipse head unit in a car in Mumbai ;-)

Very sad news indeed. Was hoping to line this HU up for my next set-up. Lets hope some other brands will take this an opportunity and step up.

When I read the thread title I thought the Jan15th solar eclipse had been canceled.
