Our take on the Eclipse CD7000

Looking to add a splash of color to your dash? Then fix your gaze on the high-definition Organic EL display on Eclipse's CD7000 CD player. More vivid than standard displays, it complements the stereo's motorized, slide-open faceplate with a striking array of background images and eye-catching animations. Best of all, you can put the display to the test with Eclipse's "Area Shot" feature, showing off trip directions with color maps, a moving vehicle icon, points of interest, and more, right from the dash.

Circle Surround II sound processing allows you to create a realistic surround sound effect in the car, no matter where your speakers are located. Eclipse DSP gives you access to a 7-band parametric EQ and time alignment capability. Pair all that control with the CD7000's powerful onboard amp, and you've got a recipe for outstanding sound quality from all your recordings.

The CD7000's Memory Stick input adds a convenient storage option for your MP3 and WMA music files. Add an optional SIRIUS satellite radio to get 120+ channels of music, sports, news, and entertainment, or use the optional iPod interface to control your iPod right from the stereo's faceplate. You can even upgrade your AM/FM experience with the optional HD Radio tuner. An auxiliary input is on hand for your portable music player.

Three sets of preamp outputs make it easier to build a full amp/sub system, and the high-powered 5-volt signal ensures clean sound from all your speakers. Subwoofer controls let you manage your bass right from the driver's seat, while five selectable filter settings allow you to optimize speaker performance. Traveling with a crowd? The wireless remote lets everyone get in on the game.

killer deck

///me from NYC on 2/1/2007

okay in the beginning i hated this deck. learning how to operate it took quite a bit of a headache and when i found that the manual was pretty much useless in describing HOW to perform some features, i was quite frustrated.<BR><BR>after many months with this unit, messing with it and doing an update to my aftermarket setup, i found that this deck is phenomenal. now i cant live without it. i finally learned how to use all of its features, and they work perfect, and its amazing how much they can cram into this 1-din unit without compromising sound quality. what they do is use analog circuitry for the audio signal processing, and everything else is digital.<BR><BR>i also use area shot (beats mapquesting on paper), the gps105 (the auto volume level works really well when this unit is hooked up, and maps move as you drive with mileage and direction count, tells you when to turn too), the hdr105 and the ipc-106 (ipod integration is awesome on this deck, dont have to re-search from scratch, but text support is still washy compared to alpines new iDA deck). on top of all that, i have room to expand more with a cd changer AND satellite radio if i want to add those later. i usually use my ipod and dont bother with cds but the atrac3 capability is useful if you want to burn a disc to the memory stick and have it right there without searching for music.<BR>e-iserv is great and actually works. u can make your own wallpaper, motion picture, sound customizations, etc.<BR><BR>downsides are you need to buy the sony msac-us40 card reader to transfer the atrac3s onto the ms. doesnt support mss more than 128 mb, and doesnt support ms pro, but ms duo is ok (need the adapter).<BR><BR>overall e



Eclipse has done it again

Alan from Atlanta, Georgia on 11/13/2006

I bought the Eclipse CD7000 HU because I had an Eclipse 5303R from about nine or ten years ago. Along with a new CD Changer, I also bought the Sirius Satelite Radio, the GPS Area Shot unit and IPOD Adapter. The Eclipse HU takes a while to get used to. It is so different in the way it functions from my older Eclipse HU, but of course it has a lot of features built right into it. Once you understand how it functions, it is really easy to set up. However, this is the first HU I have ever owned, where I actually had to read the manual to understand its operation. It can seem very complicated at first, but once you play with it and understand the logic behind it, it works great. I love the Memory Stick option that is built in. It allows you to customize the sound adjustments in your car, download maps and wallpapers, etc., via the internet website. The Area Shot is a great little feature and I strongly suggest getting the GPS unit, otherwise the built in Area shot is of little use. The CD Changer is great and even over speed bumps, there are no skips. The sound is crystal clear. I only wish the manual was a little clearer and a little bit more detailed for some of the features. You have to interpret and figure out some of the details from trial and error. Otherwise it is a creat little HU and a great value.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have tried many head units from different companies over the past few years. This is the one that I have been truly pleased with. If you want a headunit that will not only provide you with great SQ, but also with extensive sound tuning capabilities, this is the one. I recommend getting the tuning microphone as it will allow you to find and tame peaks in your system through the HU itself or by using the Eclipse website. The only thing that takes a little getting used to are the controls inside the volume knob. The shortcut function is great as you can pick which function you want. Overall this is a great headunit.




William from Apex, NC, USA on 8/11/2006

Great head unit. Unlimited possibilities with the add customizations and accessories that can be added. Clear sound. Well worth the price.




Dario from Yakima, WA on 6/21/2006

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Head unit is nice. Price is somewhat in the high range but this unit abounds with sound customization features and others that you get with optional accessories. For example, I installed the optional ipod interface and the GPS unit for this system. Areashot pretty accurate at guiding the driver. All in all this is a nice unit (Face does stick out a little to far out though). Very nice sound (with SRS). Would recommend with GPS accessory. But then again, that would drive the price up to about $900. And if you are an Ipod fanatic, I recommend the interface ($120). So there you have it; about a grand to benefit from almost all of the capabilities this stereo has to offer.



So So

Adam from Oklahoma City on 6/9/2006

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

My first impression was I can't believe I just spent 700 dollars on this thing because I couldn't see where all the money is in the unit. Screen was clear and nice and bright but no tilt feature. Has many features for sound improvement but still I couldn't see 700 dollars worth. The wheel is huge, and the face plate really sticks out far. When opening the unit to insert a CD it swings down real far. Anyways the unit functioned as it was suppose to but I still can't see 700 dollars for this unit.

CD Changer Control


Multi-Color OEL Display: The Eclipse CD7000 has a bright multi-color Organic Electro-Luminescent display. The display's image quality provides clear, detailed map displays, as well as background motion displays and slide shows. The brightness of the display is adjustable in 8 steps.

Display Pattern Options: The unit gives you a choice of six display patterns or you can import your own images:

  • Normal: The default screen displays a background image with an information bar at the top and the track/station information in the center.
  • On Screen: This screen shows the track/station information on the bar at the top over a background image.
  • Full Screen: The full screen displays the background image only.
  • Spectrum Analyzer: You can choose a horizontal or vertical multi-band spectrum analyzer display.
  • Slide Show: A series of 12 still images are shown at 5-second intervals.
  • GPS: You can display various GPS information, including directional heading, GPS reception, Latitude/Longitude, Compass, or Speed indicator display. The optional GPS antenna (099GPS105) must be connected in order to view these displays.
  • Imported: Using the E-iSERV website, you can download applications for creating motion pictures, wall paper and slide show images. Images are loaded onto a CD-R or Memory Stick and imported to the head unit.

Background Display: The background display can be selected from two motion picture displays and 4 wallpaper displays. The motion picture displays include jet aircraft over a cityscape and raindrops on a water surface. You can download other motion picture displays from the E-iSERV website, or create your own with up to 70 digital still images sequenced into a 7-second animated clip.

Illumination: The front panel buttons are independently illuminated in two zones: the large buttons and rotary knob (zone 1), and the preset buttons/custom and mute buttons (zone 2). You can choose from the following six illumination patterns (zone 1/zone 2): Blue/Red, Blue/Green, Blue/Amber, All Red, or All Amber.

MP3/WMA Playback: The CD7000 can play MP3 and WMA files recorded onto CD-R and CD-RW discs in ISO 9660 Level 1 and 2. Recommended bit rates for MP3 are 64-320 kbps and 48-320 kbps. Variable bit rates from 64 to 320 kbps for MP3 and 48 to 320 kbps can be used, however there will likely be a discrepancy in the time display. The receiver can recognize a total of 999 files and folders, 255 folders, or 8 directory layers on a single disc. The receiver can show the names of albums and artists, and ID3 Tags for MP3.

CD Text: If a CD Text disc is inserted, the receiver will display the artist name, disc title and track title information.

ATRAC3: This unit can play ATRAC3 music files recorded onto Memory Stick media. Compatible media include MagicGate (MG) Memory Sticks with a capacity of up to 128 MB. Memory Stick Duo must be used with the Memory Stick Duo adapter. Playback functions include Next/Previous track, Fast Forward/Rewind, Intro Scan (first 10 seconds of each track), Track Repeat, and Track Random. Artist names and track titles up to 14 characters can be displayed when recorded on the MG Memory Stick. No Memory Sticks are supplied with the unit. Note: Memory Sticks containing ATRAC3 Plus, MP3 or WMA files are not compatible.

ESN Security: This unit is equipped with the Eclipse Security Network with three levels of security:

  • Key CD: You can register a particular music CD as a "key" device which unlocks the security. If the registered CD is not detected, the navigation and audio functions will be disabled when the main unit is disconnected from and reconnected to the vehicle's battery. You can turn the security on or off, or change the "key" CD as desired.
  • Memory Stick: You can record a Memory Stick and a secret code (security code) with the main unit. Once constant power is restored, you can insert the Memory Stick, enter the 4-digit code, and unlock the unit.
  • ACC Security: This method can be used when Memory Stick security has already been set. When security is set, button operations are disabled when the ignition switch is turned to OFF and then back to ACC.

Note: In addition to ESN Security, the CD7000 has detachable face plate security.

Area Shot: Using the special E-iSERV website from Eclipse, you can download map data for the U.S. and Canada (from NAVTEQ) and driving instructions to your destination and burn the data to a CD-R or Memory Stick for importing into the CD7000. The Area Shot feature allows you to display the maps and driving instructions to your destination on the receiver, including points-of-interest, detailed intersection displays and audible alert tones. Text information includes intersection street names and turn directions. With the optional GPS unit connected (item # 099GPS105), you get automatic map switching, a guidance tone, and real-time readouts of the distance remaining to the next intersection as the car travels.

GPS-linked Volume: The volume can be set to automatically adjust based on vehicle speed information obtained from the GPS. The volume increases as the vehicle's speed increases, and decreases as the speed decreases. You can set the sensitivity of the Automatic Volume Control to low, medium, or high.

Radio Band Switching: If you wish to take the receiver out of the country, the tuner frequencies and interval can be switched on any of four possible regions:

  • USA:
    • FM: 87.7-107.9 MHz (0.2 MHz step)
    • AM: 530-1710 kHz (10 kHz step)
  • Asia (includes Europe):
    • FM: 87.5-108.0 MHz (0.05 MHz step)
    • AM: 522-1629 kHz (9 kHz step)
  • Australia:
    • FM: 87.5-108.0 MHz (0.1 MHz step)
    • AM: 522-1710 kHz (9 kHz step)
  • Latin America:
    • FM: 87.75-107.9 MHz (0.1 MHz step)
    • AM: 530-1710 kHz (10 kHz step)

High-volt Preamp Outputs: The CD7000 features three sets of 5-volt, low-impedance (55Ω) preamp outputs, including a non-fading output for a subwoofer. The outputs are affected by the speaker layout (see below). Note: The CD7000's manual incorrectly states the preamp voltage is 8 volts.

Digital-To-Analog Converter: This unit is equipped with an advanced 24-bit Delta Sigma D/A converter.

Source Volume Controls (SVC): Because the level of each source can vary greatly, the Source Volume Controls allow you to raise or lower the volume of AM radio, CD, and Memory Stick audio compared to the FM radio signal. The volume differences can be set within a range of -10 to +20.

Speaker Layout: Depending upon your vehicle audio system's speaker layout, you can set up the CD7000 for a traditional 4-speaker system with front and rear full-range speakers and a subwoofer, or a 3-way speaker system with low frequency (subwoofers), mid frequency (midbass/midrange speakers), and high frequency speakers (tweeters). The parametric EQ, time alignment, and crossover settings are specific to the speaker layout selection. The preamp outputs are also affected by the Speaker Layout selection; the front, rear, and non-fading outputs become the high, mid, and low band outputs (respectively) when the 4-speaker system is switched to a 3-way speaker system.

Sound Adjustment Modes: The CD7000 is equipped with several Sound Adjustment features:

  • SRS Circle Surround II: Surround sound is achieved by combining SRS TruBass, which uses the difference between two different frequencies to boost bass tones, and SRS Circle Surround, which uses 2-channel correlation to expand the sound. SRS Circle Surround II is only available when the speaker layout is set to a 4-speaker system.
  • Parametric EQ: Depending upon the speaker layout, the CD7000 offers 7 bands or 11 bands of equalization:
    • 4-Speaker Layout: When the 4-speaker layout is selected, the parametric equalizer lets you adjust 7 frequency bands by +/-10dB. Up to 5 EQ patterns can be saved in memory for future use. The following frequencies can be selected for each band:
      • Band 1: 63Hz, 80Hz, 100Hz
      • Band 2: 125Hz, 160Hz, 200Hz
      • Band 3: 250Hz, 315Hz, 400Hz, 500Hz
      • Band 4: 630Hz, 800Hz, 1kHz, 1.25kHz
      • Band 5: 1.6kHz, 2kHz, 2.5kHz, 3.15kHz
      • Band 6: 4kHz, 5kHz, 6.3kHz, 8kHz
      • Band 7: 10kHz, 12.5kHz, 16kHz
    • 3-Speaker Layout: When the 3-speaker layout is selected, the PEQ gives you 5 high-frequency bands, 5 mid-frequency bands, and 1 low-frequency band, each with selectable center frequencies:
      • High Bands: 200Hz, 250Hz, 315Hz, 400Hz, 500Hz, 630Hz, 800Hz, 1kHz, 1.25kHz, 1.6kHz, 2kHz, 2.5kHz, 3.15kHz, 4kHz, 5kHz, 6.15kHz, 8kHz, 10kHz, 12.5kHz, and 16kHz
      • Mid Bands: 63Hz, 80Hz, 100Hz, 125Hz, 160Hz, 200Hz, 250Hz, 315Hz, 400Hz, 500Hz, 630Hz, 800Hz, 1kHz, 1.25kHz, 1.6kHz, 2kHz, 2.5kHz, 3.15kHz, 4kHz, 5kHz, 6.15kHz, 8kHz, 10kHz, 12.5kHz, and 16kHz
      • Low Band: 20Hz, 25Hz, 31.5Hz, 40Hz, 50Hz, 63Hz, 80Hz, 100Hz, 125Hz, 160Hz, 200Hz, and 250Hz
  • Time Alignment: The delay time and level of the sound from each speaker can be adjusted in order to correct any phase mismatches in the sound resulting from the listening position. When the 4-speaker layout is selected, the delay times of 0 to 10 ms are made for the front left, front right, rear left, rear right, and subwoofer. When the 3-speaker layout is chosen, delay times are entered for the high left, high right, mid left, mid right, low left, and low right speakers.
  • Crossover: High-pass filters (HPF) and low-pass filters (LPF) can be applied to the speaker and preamp outputs. The slopes for the crossovers can be set to 6dB, 12dB, or 18dB per octave or Pass (no crossover).
    • 4-Speaker Layout: You can apply an LPF on the non-fading output and an HPF on the front and rear outputs. You can select a cut-off frequency between 63Hz and 200Hz for the HPF and 20Hz to 200Hz for the LPF.
    • 3-Speaker Layout: You can select a High band HPF/Mid band LPF and a Mid band HPF/Low band LPF. Cutoff frequencies for the M-LPF/Hi can be between 200Hz and 10kHz. The cutoff frequencies for the Mid-HPF/Low are 20Hz to 200Hz.
  • Multi-Harmonizer: The Multi-Harmonizer uses harmonic synthesis to restore the high-frequency component that is lost as a result of the compression process for MP3/WMA/ATRAC3. Better sound can be obtained during MP3, WMA, or ATRAC3 playback when the Multi-Harmonizer is activated. You can select between high and low effectiveness.
  • Non-fader: The phase and output level of the non-fading output can be adjusted. You can also select a stereo or mono signal.
  • Loudness: The loudness control may be turned on to emphasize low and high frequencies at low volume levels. When selected, the loudness contour provides a +10dB boost at 100Hz and a +6dB boost at 10kHz. Note: Loudness is not available when SRS Circle Surround II is activated.
  • E-iSERV Sound Effect Customizations: The parametric EQ, time alignment, and crossover settings can be adjusted using the head unit or through the Eclipse E-iSERV website. Settings can be stored on CD-R or Memory Stick and uploaded to the head unit.

Remote Control: The CD7000 can be controlled by the supplied RMC105 remote control. With the remote you can access the following functions: Power, Mode, Volume Up/Dn, Source select (Disc/Tuner/Aux), Band select, Mute, Preset Channel Up/Dn, Disc Up/Dn, Track Up/Dn, and Tune/Seek Up/Dn.

Compatible with Factory Steering Wheel Radio Controls: Through the special E-iSERV website from Eclipse, you can download software that enables factory steering wheel remote operation of the CD7000. This software can be burned to a CD-R and imported into the receiver. Two wires (brown/black and brown) in the supplied wiring harness need to be connected to factory wiring in order for steering wheel remote commands can operate. To take advantage of the optional wired remote capability of this unit, you must have a vehicle with steering wheel radio controls. Note: Depending upon the vehicle's make and model, not all downloaded material may be compatible with steering wheel remote functions.
