Summary: I bought this item for my husband to use in his woodworking shop. He needed something he could mount under the stairs, out of the way of sawdust. This car unit does the trick nicely. I can't wait until he has it mounted and it is fully functional! I read lots of reviews on this particular combo,aaaall were favorable. Most mentioned it's dependability. The sound quality is great for the money!
Summary: This is a great product at an extremely competative price. When you buy alpine you know that your getting the best in car-audio quality, and this satisfies that idea to every extent. Great deal, Great Product.
Summary: I replaced the factory stereo in a 2001 civic with this unit. I am very happy with my decision -- made after hours of Internet research, store-room testing, etc. One thing I don't like is that the word "Playlists" on the display shows up with a space so that it looks more like "Playlist 5." Every time I scan for a playlist (or song, or artist), I keep thinking, what is playlist 5? What is song 5? Etc. But other than that, it's a great stereo...
Summary: This product was a total disappointment. Sent it back. There was a problem with the RCA outputs. It caused a loud clunk sound in the subwoofers, when changing soure inputs. The seller stated Alpine never has a bad receiver. I am telling you, this one was! I bought a Kenwood afterwards, great sound, no problems.
Summary: Just a great product and the tone adjustments are superb. The i-Pod connector makes a great user of my i-pod touch for unlimited almost songs. Great reception oin the tuner also even though I have it installed on a twenty year old Benz.
Summary: After a long time of looking for a new head unit i finally decided on this one and haven't regretted it one bit. I've owned an Alpine HU before (can't remember the name) but it was a year older and had a similar set up so i liked the familiarity. Install was a breeze with the right harnesses and figuring out which wire goes where. Up and running in less then 30 minutes! After a couple hours of messing with the controls, one can easily switch playlists.
