M Hubbard from Buena Park, CA Wrote:
"The Alpine CDA-117 will be a classic in years to come. The sound quality is top notch with the 24 bit Burr Brown DSP on the radio, CD and now IPOD which puts this unit ahead of its class. The IPOD controls are top notch because to find songs, artists or albums, there is either the percentage search and now alphabet search which makes searching much much easier. The looks are top notch. This unit has the built in 7 band graphic equalizer or 6 band parametric equalizer. YOU DO NOT NEED IMPRINT TO USE THESE FEATURES. The RCA voltage is 4 volts. Everything that you expect from a top quality SQ unit is what the CDA-117 has and then some. I swapped out both of my CDA 9886 radios for 2 CDA-117 radios and I can hear an immediate difference. Buy this unit and you will not be disappointed."

Alpine CDA-105

Alpine Steps Up "Out of the Box" Connectivity

Alpine CDA-105 car audio/stereo receiver 

For years Alpine has been a leading manufacturer of high quality car audio/stereo and video receivers. When you buy Alpine products, you can expect to get car electronics made from the highest quality materials that produce amazing sound. The downside was; unless you went for Alpine's "top of the line" products, you'd have to spend more for USB and iPod connectivity.

With the CDA-105 this is no longer the case. We're not saying that this in-dash receiver is lower quality than it's counterparts. Not only can you expect the level of quality and performance you'd expect from an Alpine receiver, but you now get the added benefit of having a USB port in the front of your receiver. With the built-in USB port you can connect a USB memory device to play your favorite digital music files while ignoring other types of files on the device. You can also control your iPod directly from the receiver without paying for additional parts or adapters.
