 Pioneer Premier Deh-p400UB, skip proof?

Hi, I'm curious about how hard it is to make the Pioneer Premier Deh-p400UB skip. I have a complete aftermarket car audio system. My nice Clarion headunit quit ejecting CD's so I need to get a new headunit and I'm tight on money.

I can't find how many seconds the shock proof memory covers. Does anyone personally know if this headunit doesn't skip at high volumes? This headunit goes from 1-62, I'm talking about the 35-62 volume range.

10 seconds.

 

  actually a nice deck  last yrs model.   but the max volume is 80% of 62  so 48-50 should be the highest you ever turn it upto, otherwise you will be sending a clipped signal.

Thanks. Does that 10 seconds of shock proof memory include CD use? Using CD's will be my primary use with the headunit. I also have two external amplifiers I use for speakers and subs.

My current Clarion "Pro Audio" headunit has shock proof memory of 20 seconds which explains why I haven't had a single skip in 2 1/2 years. Unfortunately, it doesn't want to eject CD's anymore.

I guess I'm leaning towards the Pioneer Premier Deh-p410UB which is this years model and I'm just curious if it's worth spending the extra money. That volume knob looks like it might get worn out due to having to push it in different directions to chose the options.

Is the shock proof memory of the Deh-p410UB higher than the Deh-p400UB?

I would actually get the 5100ub  i sell them for 200 shipped,  they all have 10 second  and they are extremely reliable.  the shock proof anti skip only pertains to cd use  not usb,  you cant make a usb memory stick skip, it has no moving parts,  lol.

I'm actually tight on money unfortunately so the most I can on a headunit is around $149.99. I just got done spending a lot of money fixing my speakers and getting a new amp in. It seems to be one damn thing after the next.

Some people have said that Pioneer headunit's including the Premier series have no shock proof memory and apparently their wrong. I don't get why Pioneer would make huge Pioneer Premier 6000W SPL subs when it could cause their own Pioneer Premier headunits to skip. So I guess Pioneer Premiers don't skip at high volumes?

Nice, what factors could contribute to a skipping headunit? I've had all of my car audio equipment continuously installed time and time again (upgrades/replacements) by some good car audio installers. They have also set the gain on my amps.

I wonder why some people have Pioneers that skip and others don't. I guess there are some factors like badly set gains?

Is it difficult to take the top cover off of a headunit? Would it damage the car audio system to turn on the headunit with its top cover off while its connected to the amps?

Thanks, forgot about the ground being an issue.

Last question, do the previous series of headunits generally lower in price as new models release? For example, a Pioneer Premier Deh-p400UB getting replaced by a Pioneer Premier Deh-410UB.From what it seems, they do actually drop in price, but I could be wrong.

I'll probably go with a Pioneer Premier Deh-p500UB.

I just hope that their still around when I buy one in some weeks and the prices aren't inflated. Being in college with no job gets hard on money.

yes they do but be careful where you buy from Pioneer as well as most others use serial numbers to verify that it is an authorized dealer.  I had about 40 of the 400ub decks that I clearanced for 140 but they are long gone.

Sonicelectronix sells the Pioneer Premier Deh-p400UB with the premier special two year warranty. What is the difference if you buy a Pioneer Premier headunit from an authorized or unauthorized dealer? Is it the warranty? I'm assuming that Sonic Electronix is an authorized dealer and an unauthorized dealer has their own warranty.

I guess buying from an unauthorized dealer could mean less support from the dealer and more reliance on Pioneer customer support along with higher costs for the support

they are not authorized internet dealers but they do honor the warranty so you should be fine.
