You forgot Crescendo Audio (at least for amplifiers anyway). Just a heads up.

Nice alphabetical list too. I would have never known this post existed had you not bumped it today with the updates. Again, in my opinion, this would be a great sticky!!!

Therr are so many brands on this list that have either completely fallen off or basically don't exist anymore. I think it is time for a real update.

I'd say polk audio should be on highest quality as well. Their amps are ridiculous (Pricey, but WELL worth it). compact, clean, very powerful. Speakers are great bang for your buck too.

Before the directed buy out, I would agree, but since then I would keep them in the good area, and that is coming from a long time Polk fan who is local to their HQ.

Clarion - still good?

I am in the market for a new head unit, double Din. I stumbled across the Clarion NX404 the features of which I really like. A stereo installer (artist, actually!) that I have known for a while told me they went out of business like a year ago and got bought out by a company that makes shoddy products. He is pushing me toward Kenwood Excelon. I have always been partial to Clarion for whatever reason, and I have not found any information online regarding Clarion being bankrupt/bought out by anyone. Is there any truth to this?

Clarion doesn't seem to offer the top tier products they once did, but for budget friendly entry level gear they are still decent compared to "off brands".

If you don't want to pay for Alpine, Kenwood, Pioneer, then you should definitely consider lower priced units from Clarion and JVC- they are a little more more affordable than the top three brands, and you don't have to stoop to buying junk.

Are the Precision Power head units any good? I'm considering buying one but can't seem to find any reviews on them...
