Summary: I have always wanted an Alpine car stereo, but they have always been too expensive. I found this on Amazon under $100, and I couldn't say no. The installation was no sweat. I had already had the factory taken out and replaced with a JVC. I already had the required new wiring harness, so the Alpine install was a breeze. Everything was clearly marked and they give you enough wire to properly make the connections.
Summary: Sounded good for 3 min. ...then cut out and stopped working. wanted an alpine for new car. and since I have a JVC in my jeep 4x4 and have never once had a problem.. I naturally assumed an Alpine was a great choice. It was not. It was a piece of cake to install, worked great, till it stopped all together. Amazon doesn't refund you. just sends you the same kind of receiver...I don't want another piece of junk one. so the replacement one better exceed expectations.
Summary: Loved to finally have a radio in my vehicle again, so I didn't check the CD player or USB port for a couple months and when I did, they were both inoperable..hard saying what happened there, but it's a learning experience for sure.....
Summary: The factory unit in my 05 Honda Accord failed so I was forced to replace it, and I'm glad I chose this unit. My friend has an Alpine stereo in his Dodge Ram and it always sounded great. He convinced me to choose Alpine for my stereo purchase. The sound quality is great and the installation process was simple. Its been in my car for about 3 weeks now and its been holding up extremely well. This is a great buy!
