Eclipse CD3100

 

The Eclipse CD3100 has enough audio-tweaking options to please the most particular of in-car audiophiles. Its well-designed controls and colorful faceplate make it easy to program.

While the system's Area Shot navigation function is a good idea in theory, its programming process is more trouble than it's worth in practice.

The Eclipse CD3100 is a car stereo for drivers interested in fine-tuning their in-cabin acoustics. Its digital-audio playback and navigation features are intuitive and user-friendly. Its turn-by-turn navigation feature is not.

"Sounds good, will not Eject my CD."

 

The display is difficult to read when any sun light is shining. The controls are slow to react and with the difficulty in reading the display you can't memorize where you want to dial to. Though I like the sound I will be replacing the unit with Alpine...

Sounds good, easy to install the 5v outputs are nice. With the IPOD adapter it plays MP3s fine though slow to move through the IPOD Menus.

Put in a CD one day an it will not Eject it. It still plays the CD but will not give it back! Worked for an hour with an Eclipse tech on the phone and finally he gave up and told me to send it back to the company. If I take it out it will be replaced

"Great Sound Great controls."

 

"Fully Japanese."

This is one of the few units that can compete and beat Alpine, specifically when you go for price vs value. Still it is great quality as it i made by Fujitsu 10, which is one of the best manufacturers in japan.

The equalizer could be more channels.

"Good quality with just a few hiccups"

 

If you are looking for good quality with good sound and good price, this should be in the running. Have enjoyed mine for a while, unlike MasteroftheHelm.

Eclipse is a good brand, the unit offers a lot of sound customization, love the ipod controls (I like them better than the alpine), I like the looks of the unit, and price is pretty good too.

just about everything is controlled from the dial, which has a tendency to not recognize what direction you are pressing correctly (ex- thinks you hit up when you hit right). Hasn't been a big issue for me though.

Product Specifications

CD3100 has a high level of basic performance as well as extraordinary expandability. Other sources such an iPod, SIRIUS tuner, and CD Changer connect easily and compatibility with MP3 and WMA files allows the CD3100 to break out of entry-level limitations. The most useful parameters allow the user to precisely tune the overall system response for the best sound possible. The front panel easily detaches from the unit, making it totally inoperative once removed and increasing theft deterrence as well. Easy adjustments allow seamlessly blending system speakers and dedicated subwoofer(s) for a more natural, effortless sound with greater dynamic range. Adding an animated feel to the display, the Sound Meter offers a realtime frequency spectrum display and also indicates media playback in progress.
