The technology inside
The challenge was to fit an immense amount of technology into a space-limited one-DIN unit
housing. By extensively employing the latest advances in integrated circuit technologies, ECLIPSE
was able to achieve an impressive engineering feat of fitting all the technology in. ECLIPSE is the
only mobile electronics manufacturer to offer so much in a single, compact enclosure.
Space-saving circuit construction
techniques
AN8826 circuit board construction utilises
advanced modules comprised of DAC,
memory and flash memory integrated
circuits that make it possible to downsize
the circuit boards, which in turn help
achieve the ultra space-efficient one-DIN
unit configuration of the AN8826.
20GB 1.8˝ HDD
Using this instead of a
2.5˝ HDD helped maintain
the compact, ultra-efficient
design, taking up 30%
less valuable real estate.

Audio Features
The new CD Receiver line delivers outstanding audio performance across the board for each model.
Circle Surround II
Circle Surround II adds three important functions that will significantly
increase in-car music listening enjoyment. Circle Surround will upmix
any audio program material such as CDs, MP3s, WMA files and
FM/MW/LW broadcasts for surround sound with just four speakers.
Focus works to raise the apparent soundfield so that sound is perceived
as coming from the front, and at ear level, instead of from the sides and
lower as many speakers are positioned in cars. TruBass makes use of
psychoacoustic principles and human hearing characteristics so that
extended low frequencies are perceived, even from small speakers.
Focus
Generates virtual speakers that
create a front-firing, higherpositioned soundfield.
Circle Surround
Multichannel surround
sound is generated from
any audio source.
TruBass
Generates a virtual subwoofer
for satisfying low frequency
reinforcement.

Audio customise
The CD8445E offers the most comprehensive
customisation functions for a user to optimise
an audio system for the specific car it is
installed in. In addition, customisation can be
performed in two modes: Professional Mode
and Easy Mode. Professional Mode offers a
degree of user customisation that would

Crossover adjustment controls the frequency where a speaker’s
response crosses over to the next speaker’s response for a
smooth, full bandwidth sound without any speaker
discontinuities, making for a more pleasing overall system
response. Speaker response cutoff frequencies and rolloff slopes
can be optimally set.

High-voltage preamp output
ECLIPSE audio philosophy emphasises high
performance so both the CD8445E and
CD5425E are designed to deliver ideal electrical
characteristics. Doing so allows downstream
amplifiers to be driven optimally to deliver the
best performance with minimal noise and
distortion.
CD8445E: 8V at 55Ω, CD5425E: 5V at 55Ω
3-Band EQ
This feature was designed to allow a user to
easily adjust the tonal characteristics of
program material to suit listening preferences.
CD5425E
Multi-Harmonizer
Ideal for obtaining the best sound from MP3,
WMA and ATRAC3 music files, this function
can be activated to restore the harmonic data
that is lost when digital music files are
encoded.
CD8445E
Advanced 24-bit ∆∑ DAC
All signals remain strictly in the digital domain
till they are converted to analogue to drive the
power amplification section, minimising
distortion and improving S/N ratios.

Natural-sounding and dynamic, MOSFETs are
used in both CD Receivers because they draw
less current and also require less power.
Other Features
5-pattern illumination
Sharp displays
Allows the user to select a colour that best
complements the car’s interior or just to suit
user preferences. CD8445E
The CD8445E has an 8-step full dot Vacuum
Fluorescent (VF) display for extremely legible
alphanumeric characters and a separate Bright
& Dimmer control. The CD5425E sports an
LCD display with 3 colours and large, easy-tosee characters with adjustable brightness.

SVC acts as a master volume control that
ensures the volume settings for all program
sources stay the same so there are no
annoying volume changes when switching
sources.
Featured in both models, ECLIPSE’s proven
theft-deterrent feature works with a userdesignated CD or Memory Stick (CD8445E
only) as a key device to lock the system and
prevent activation in the case of removal or
unauthorised access.
Detachable Front Panel
The front panel detaches and is compact,
allowing users another level of security and
deterrence.
Motion Picture
The CD8445E can be customised to show a
personalised motion picture on the display.
Motion pictures can be downloaded or original
ones can be used with the Cutting Board
application to create a sequence of up to 10 sec.
Up to 100 images can be used in sequence.
