Yeah, I am bombed out with the price hike as well. So now back to Alpine or e3io. Tough choice as both have things I don't like.

So far eBay has them at around $950 new. Please post if you can find them cheaper.

I think I just made up my mind, I am going with E3IO. Out of all their models they recommended me the 4 gen Pro.

I've played with the e3io. I didn't like it at all. Besides the UI and clunky feel of the unit, the fan (at least on the model loaned to me) was very loud and would have driven me nuts in my car.

Edit: The one loaned to me was a $1600 unit that was pretty much the top of the line about 1.5 years ago.

The fan, I totally did not think about that. There is a model that the computer itself can be installed in the trunk (kind of looks like an amp) and the screen up front. That may help with the fan noise but it is also a $150 price hike. The clunckyness, oh well. Desicions...

You settled for the Alpine? I would get the 80PRS but browsing through a hard drive full of music is painful on that unit.

I wouldn't say I "settled" for the alpine. I chose it because I liked it.

Erin, would you mind posting a video of you using the NX706 GUI?

I'm curious to see how laggy it is. The Sonic Electronix video on YouTube from CES didn't seem bad at all.

Yep, watched both those videos numerous times, I'm just not seeing it being *that* laggy. Sure, there's a slight pause at times when you select a button on the screen...seems pretty decent to me.

At this price point, you can't expect it to be as snappy as a flagship smartphone!


Judging from this video, the W957HD seems just as "laggy":

Yes. Yes, you can. It is 2016. There is NO EXCUSE in a day and age, where high quality responsive touch screens and GUIs are ubiquitous, for a product with this kind of performance is released to the public. Especially not from a manufacturer who would like to be considered in the top tier of their industry. My first iPhone, a 3G from 7+ years ago, performed more smoothly than this flagship head unit in 2016.

I played with the NX706 at CES. It was not good. Erin has used it, and if he says it hasn't improved, I wouldn't spend a penny on this head unit.

If that's the case, why spend a penny on the Alpine when it's just as slow as the NX706 (judging by the video I posted)?

Damn thing doesn't even output BT phone calls through optical, yet BT audio comes through... Wtf is that...

I was not advocating for the Alpine. I have never used it. I just know based on my own experience, that I would never purchase and install the Clarion NX706. At least, not until there is a price drop that accompanies a firmware upgrade to fix the shortcomings. To each their own.

I don't know what else to say beyond I don't like the UI and the response at times lags with the clarion. I have the alpine. I know it's response doesn't lag. It's a noticeable lag when I interact with the clarion, to the point it caught my attention and I wrote about it.

Bottom line is: If you want to try it for yourself to see if the interface is acceptable to you then buy it and try it. I did. I didn't like it. It's going back.

Your suggesting that the NX706 does not do bluetooth calls?

Chapter 14 of the manual is called "Bluetooth Telephone Operations."

Am I missing something?

Nah. Not a prob. My phone in my pocket rings to my pad. Reverse cam is on the mirror. Though I've wondered and will check if pulling my particular OEM radio will have anything to do with backup cam. But BT phone is no problem.

Default Re: The Clarion NX706 is out!

Did someone answer this yet...is all the audio (cd,dvd,hd radio etc) sent out via the optical cable? It would be nice to keep everything didgital and I assume that's what this is all about here. One thing that's going to suck is lack of aptx support. It may recieve Bluetooth but the quality isn't the same in my experience. So if I stream audio from my phone from milk or slacker I guess I'll have to do it completely separately. As I don't even have 's music anymore the cd and dvd section is a bit useless for me. 320kbps sounds fine to me.

I take it you use the continuity feature with the IPAD/IPhone? How well does it work in the car and what microphone does it use?

Also I know using Wifi you could auto switch your camera into an IPAD that way. The mirror video is also a good alternative.

If it is an Adroid one I am even more interested.

Default Re: The Clarion NX706 is out!

I bought and used the Clarion NX706 solely because of the optical output. I had it in my system with the Helix P SIX DSP MK2, I also have the Helix Director hooked up. I can control volume from the NX706 but I have the Helix director for all of the cool features that brings to the game such as "start-up" volume.

Sadly this head unit's only bright side is the optical output. ErinH has already spoke of the lack of iPod support, the there is a cable that says "iPod/iPhone control" but it is essentially for the "iPod" app on your iPhone. Silly me, not reading the find print first got an iPod touch after my classic didn't work, only to find out that was also incompatible. Forget about using the bluetooth on you iPod touch, when I used my iPhone over bluetooth is was okay, occasionally while driving on the highway it would intermittently lose connection the way bad FM stations would. With the iPod touch on bluetooth is was downright unacceptable, a lot of static noise, sounded like someone was scratching the surface of my speakers.

Short story, this head unit is incredibly overpriced for what it offers, GPS is below average too. So I will be replacing it with a Kenwood unit. Its back to analog for me until one of the more "feature rich" manufacturers add a digital output to one of their units.

To be clear, BT audio works fine through the optical out. It's just phone calls that isn't supported.
Hi ErinH, currently use the 957HD unit, I use optical fiber for BT, Ipod and also to make and receive calls, I was struck by your comment that it was not possible to make calls using the unit in digital mode. I excuse my bad English I'm from Mexico.
