    the UCS? damn.... ok, never trust reviews! ( I never realy looked into it, because I was going with a 31-band graphiq EQ at first.

    ok, no optical in/out, and indeed rather low output, but: time-alignment

    How about the venerable Sony XES (P1, X1)? Also possibly the XDP9000 (Sony).

    What about the Pioneer P9 combo? (DEX-P9 and DEQ-P9)

    As long as I'm chiming in, the Pioneer ODR system and the Clarion ADCS1 may have also had optical inputs.

    I can't find any specs on the XES nor can I find anything at all on the XDP

    done - though I think this might be a bit on the sides lines, it's still a player for those that are interested in still using a fully functional HU.

    Same with the ORD system. This isn't so much just a list of processors that are avaliable, but a list of processors that people might use to research their options as far as integrating into a CarPC install.

    As far as the XES is concerned:
    3/4 way crossover, selectable crossover points, 72dB/octave slopes, as well as time alignment for each channel with the X1 unit. There is a parametric EQ included in the P1 (Command module)
    Toslink in and I believe there were 20 bit Burr-Browns on each channel. They may have been 16 bit, though. I had one of these setups for quite a while. It used what is by far the most ergonomic remote ever developed for car audio (IMO). Another possible bonus is the X1 may be able to be controlled via PC with a unilink emulator. This unit would function on a standalone basis if that was the case, and be very attractive to the members of this forum.

    This system also used Unilink for control, and has a niche following currently as far as modifications go (XM/Ipod control.) Here's a reputable forum: http://www.rush2112.net/phpBB2/viewf...55cfeff063f71b

    The XDP4000X (Screwed up the model # above. It's been a while..) was a very similar unit as far as functionality, but I can't recall the differences.

    I have a friend currently running the ODR, and it has similar functionality to the XES setup, but with fewer boxes.

    I will be running the P9 stuff in the install I am planning now. Hopefully I will get a thread started in worklogs over the next couple of days.

    I realize you weren't necessarily looking for all of the options, but I figured I'd toss out a few SQ heavy options for those on more liberal budgets.
