Summary: ALPINE PRODUCTS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN GREAT AND THIS MODEL IS NO EXCEPTION. I HAD IT PROFESSIONALLY INSTALLED IN MY 1983 PORSCHE 944, ALONG WITH FOUR NEW ALPINE 4" SPEAKERS. THE SOUND IS CLEAR WITH LOTS OF POWER.
Summary: Great receiver as always by alpine. Was easy to install and was a outstanding upgrade from my factory radio. I considered this to be a great deal as the price was cheap and the shipping was cheap. I would recommend this to everyone.
Summary: Receiver is awesome. Very tunable and looks great. I only use a usb drive to listen to music, so i have no idea how good the signal is that comes in through fm stations. If you want the last radio you will ever buy... Get this one.
Summary: Pros: -Great iPod/iPhone support -Color display -Easy to navigate -Great sound quality -External HDD/Flash drive compatible (formatted with FAT32) Cons: -No Aux. Line in (unless purchased separate and swapped for the iPod/USB cable) -No CD Player (I didn't care, but some people still use disk based media)
Summary: Bought this for my boat. Most important features were the large volume control knob and full iPod control. Works perfectly, couldn't be happier with it. The Pandora function works well too. Note this model works with iphones through 4Gs. If you have a 5 were the new port you'll need the newer model Alpine.
