This deck can do anything.... as long as you buy the adapter/modules.

Summary: This deck can do anything... as long as you buy the adapter/module. I like the alpine deck, but can get all the features for less on a Dual brand deck. I have always believed in the quality of Alpine so I will stick with them.
the most disappointing purchase i made in last few years
1 October 2011
Summary: this unit is advertised as "Engineered for paramount sound quality, the CDA-117 is a premium quality head unit" theres no such thing built into this unit. the features are added only to make you want to buy the imprint addon.
Summary: Absolutely fantastic receiver. Quick with both the ipod controls and i have an easy time scrolling folders and songs thru usb. Sound quality is flawless, I am student of car audio and have had many fine eclipse units in the past. This Alpine unit has few flaws after 6 mos.. An easy purchase
Summary: I bought this receiver mainly because of the quality that Alpine delivers time after time. I like the ease of use, the display is nice and clear, the buttons are simple, the many different fine tuning adjustments that are available on sound.
Summary: Great headunit for the money! Only gripe I have is that there is no seperate bass and treble controls. Instead, you have a graphic EQ that you can adjust. I like the Alpine 9886 that I have in my other car that you can control bass and treble.
