  1. Between the internet (Sonic Electronics, etc..) & Wal-Mart, the specialty retailer is dying. The distributors & Manufacturers need to start policing their own products & maybe we can all keep our heads above water!!

  2. If I am not mistaken Alpine and Kenwood are the only two major head unit suppliers not in Wal-Mart. Support who supports you, well at least a little bit.

  3. If walmart is paying alot less for the product
    Than A mom and pop shop profitability on that
    Product will suffer if it does stop selling the product

  4. Been a Clarion dealer for a long time, and I love the video headunits…but why are they retailing for a higher price if it’s just a repeat model with a different model number??? I’m curious to see if the CZ101 looks any different from the 2010 models. By the way, Clarion is also available on now – I knew it was only a matter of time! It’s a shame what has happened to this industry…specialty retailers will eventually be extinct!
