Summary: it is by for the best receiver ive ever owned. ive owned alpine n other brands, but over the last twenty years. this is by for the best. I now own 7 of them. y because they don't make them any more. so I have them just in case one cant be repaired.
Summary: I recently bought this deck as an upgrade from my budget deck(Dual) expected this thing to run like a champ. At first I loved the design of the deck and the features it had. Than realized those so called features cost extra to use with a separate console "imprint". Bummed there but the deck still has built in crossovers for your speakers and an internal amp which I have to admit is pretty GREAT compared to my dual deck.
Summary: I've been installing car audio stereo equipment for years now. I've attended and competed in many car audio competitions. Alpine head units are very popular in the competiton world. In otherwords, you cannot go worng with a alpine headunit.
Summary: First and last alpine receiver. This unit stinks. 1. Same button to turn off unit as to switch between inputs i.e. cd, tuner, etc. If you don't hold the button long enough, instead of turning off, you just switch inputs 2. When receiver is off, there is no clock, so unit must be on at all times 3. Ipod navigation is slow as snail and tedious to use 4. Very little audio adjustment features for the money. 5.
Summary: I really don't have much to say. I've had an Alpine head unit in the three cars I've had in my life. I don't think I'll ever stray from them. This unit definitely does exactly what I want it to do. I wish it had a Zune hookup because I had to pay $100 to install an auxiliary input for my Zune HD. For some reason, I still think my CDA-9815 that I bought in 2003 for my '00 Honda Civic Si was a lot better.
Summary: I have had the stero for less then a year. I have the same problem as another user. Error 01. Nobody knows how to fix this, except get a new radio. They (Alpine) don't seem as good as they used to (quality that is).
