ICE Help...what is a good in dash dvd screen model?
 
Heard of Alpine...Pioneer..any model numbers? Also, I'm guessing I will need to get a separate cd/dvd player (external) to work with the screen?

Sorry about the stupid question, but I am new to the in car entertainment deal...

They're all good.
Go to Crutchfield and browse the different models. They all offer different features/options at different prices.

i like the clarion vrx925vd
but a lil on the pricey side...
touch screen also :thumbup:

e46boy 10-16-2002 12:03 AM

o and panasonic

I got the Panasonic CQ-VCD9200U. Better than the Clarion touch screen one. Just doesn't have the "touch screen" option. It has everything the Clarion has including Mp3, a digital 5.1 encoder (in which the Clarion's encoder is sold seperately) and a built in 35 Watt Center Channel Amp. It also has a higher RMS at 22 W. I got mine for $1700.

panasonic makes LCD for clarion, kenwood, and pioneer i believe...

lcd quality wise.. it should be all the same.. it's just the features. I personally HAVE to have touchscreen so kenwood was my best choice...

clarion wont' let you add a NAV.. so it's pointless..

digitalgm 10-16-2002 01:55 PM

Nooooooooooooo!!!!! I have seen all of these displays in person and I can tell you that the panasonic ones are some of the WORST..... The best in that list is definetley pioneer. I have one and even in direct sunlight the colors are vivid and natural. Kenwood I like but the touchscreen will get worn out quickly.

Isn't the touch screen just a palm PDA but bigger? Why would you guys think it'll get worn out fast? I'm gonna use a Palm stylus for the touch screen then... :dunno:

digitalgm 10-16-2002 02:23 PM

I dont think it will get worn out fast - I know. Maybe they have fixed the problems already but I remember a couple circumstances where either the touch portion of the screen would go bad or the pixels below it would go bad. Either way - no good..... plus, I think the display quality is sub par.

Ok, that's your opinion.

I looked at them all, playing the same movie (Monsters Inc.) when I made my decision. Panasonic had decent pic quality, Pioneer was just ok, Kenwood was great, as was Clarion. I also went to a different shop that had all the players hooked up and came to the same conclusion.

digitalgm 10-16-2002 02:49 PM

Which pioneer were you looking at the 7300 or the 7000?

AdamR

theJrod 10-16-2002 05:20 PM

7000? Do you mean the DVH-P7000 ? That unit is just an indash DVD player - no screen. The AVX-P7300DVD has a screen and a DVD player, and the AVX-7300 has screen but only plays CDs.

The AVH-P7490DVD is the latest with included Dolby Digital decoder and 6 amplified channels and uses the AVX-P7300DVD head unit. If you can find it for less than the MSRP of $2800, then it's a pretty good deal.

I looked at both 7300 units. The 7490DVD package was not in stores at the time. The Poineer units weren't bad, the colors were just not as sharp as the Clarion and Kenwood. Otherwise, the quality of the picture was very good. It could be how the stores had them setup, too.

digitalgm 10-16-2002 05:23 PM

Yes, I was reffering to the AVX-P7000cd and the AVX-p7300. I have the 7000cd and I have to tell you I have compared it to others... maybe it was the ones that I compared it to or the store setup... either way as long as we are both happy with the quality. :)

Alpine IVA-C801! :thumbup:



if you wanna wait for it.. Alpine will have an in-dash DVD player like the others very soon. and its gonna blow all others out of the water.. guaranteed

Kyle325ci 10-19-2002 03:42 PM

Hey playinj30
 
Any idea when that Alpine is gonna be out? I'm an Alpine man too. But I am getting tired of waiting for them to put one out.

No shiznit....ME TOO!

Ron@Streeteffectz 10-20-2002 08:11 PM

The Alpine screens, in NO WAY, SHAPE, OR FORM, can even compare to the Pioneer, Clarion, Eclipse, or Kenwood screen resolution.

CSHFLW 10-20-2002 09:13 PM

They can't compair because they are better....the CVA 1005 had and is still close to the best picture. Apline rocks the monitors. Plus you think a touch screen plasma helps resolution???? Nope.


Does any one have any info on the new DVD Alpine peace?

Ron@Streeteffectz 10-20-2002 10:35 PM

OK, hang on a second....you're telling me that the Alpine picture is BETTER than the rest???? I have used most every screen on the market, and the Alpine comes in at the bottom of the list as far as picutre quality is concered. I love Alpine, don't get me wrong, but Alpine screen quality IS NOT very good.

CSHFLW 10-21-2002 01:53 AM

I think it's #1, at least a year ago...I haven't seen a dvd play on a clarion or panasonics new 7200 or 9200
