Alright i got a USED 880PRS head unit for sale... as far as i know i am the 2nd owner of the unit and i had it for about 2years

Everything you see below is what is included


-Metra Dash Kit fitted for 6th gen accords $20
-Honda 6th gen Wire harness $10
-Detachable face plate carrying case
-Auto Time Alignment & Auto EQ adjustment mic
-Remote Control
-Original 880PRS Owner's Manual
THIS UNIT DOES NOT HAVE THE GROUNDING ISSUE

if this is going into a 6th gen accord everything you see here is already modified to fit directly into the dash... the dash kit and the wireharness bolts right up to the factory brackets and the harness hooks up directly to the OEM male connector... no cutting or soldering required

now the BAD thing about the unit... just about a week ago the CD Player has been acting up... its thrown a Error-11 and Error-12 code... which basically means the problem could be anything... it ate my Linkin Park CD and wouldnt eject it out
so today i brought it to several Pioneer Authorized Service Centers and got quotes on the repair...
to repair the CD Player i got quote's from $80-$125... from what i was told, the springs and rubber bumpers are worn so its having a difficult time ejecting cd's and the Laser insdie needs to be replaced

Everything else on the unit works.. Raido, Time Alignment, etc. etc. but the CD Player... it will play cds sometimes, and other times it'll just keep spinning and throwing codes.. but i suggest not to insert any cds in the unit until its fixed or it might swallow the CD again

this used to retail for 399.99 on the pioneer site about 3 years ago... currently the cheapest on ebay is going for $285shipped
now im not expecting to get anything near that price as it is defective at the moment but my asking price is $50 picked up the dask kit and the wire harness is $30+ tax alone... people over at caraudio.com is selling this same unit for $250 used...
you can still get this fixed and working like brand new for under half the price of a new unit
if it was any other cheap head unit i would of just tossed this and not even bothered... however if you do some research on this unit you'll know just how amazing this product is... its considered a high end model for pioneer premier and it out scored several other units that costs much more, like eclipse, kenwood, panasonic... i just wanna sell this unit off and put it towards another head unit for the future


here are some links reguarding the 880PRS

this has two modes which can be switched back and forth... Active and Passive
going active on this unit gives you incredible tweaking ability (this is for people running a full complete system)... it also NEEDS to run off a exterior amplifier
Passive the normal mode that all the other lower budget units use.. your basic Rock, HipHop, Natural, Flat mode and it runs off the internal amp of the unit
but either mode you use it in, the Sound Quality on this unit is amazing

gona give it a week before i post this up on caraudio.com so people here can jump on this deal
$50 Picked up thanks for looking

Wire Harness already set to plug directly into the stock connectors








Active and Passive Switch

nice radio, I love the polished knobs :)
yeah this deck isnt the flashy kind with bright lights flashing... it more on the clean and classy side :)

this unit really brings out the SQ in your speakers, sadly i was never able to go active with the unit and see it's true potential
yeah mine hasnt really had any problems with fitment, i know some of the kits tend to bend in the lower pocket area but mine has never given me any trouble as you can see in the pics above... im at work at the moment so ill have to look for the part number when i get home

you have a PM... i also made a n00b mistake lol... its not a metra kit... i just remembered i ALMOST bought a metra kit but i found out they had horrible fitment so i went with the current dash kit i have right now which isnt metra lol -_____-

i think the metra kits are built directly for the 6th gen accords.... the kit i have requires cutting tabs because it fits like 10 other honda/acura models, but the fitment is much better

also the dash kit is now pending the next person in line over at 6ga.com
