Love the Tune! Tag The Tune! Buy from iTunes!

How many times have you heard a song on the radio you’d really like to hear again? Wouldn’t it be great if you could somehow capture a song’s name and artist, so that you don't have to scramble for a pen and paper to write it down? Well, now you can with an iTunes Tagging enabled head unit. iTunes Tagging allows you to save a song’s information on and later listen to it and buy from the Apple iTunes Store.

The Alpine CDA-117Ri allows you to enjoy all different types of music in your car from; radio to CD’s, USB and iPod, including Apple’s latest models.

The Alpine CDA-117Ri is designed to offer full control over all music stored on iPhones and iPods. The head unit offers a similar function to the iPod itself when searching for music and these include album, artist, song, play list, genre, audio book and composer giving great control over all your songs.

The Alpine CDA-117Ri CD receivers informative display and fast song search capability make it a terrific stereo for users of digital file formats. The BioLite display stays legible in just about any light, while the two lines of text offer plenty of space for your song and system information.

For the ultimate listening experience in your car, the CDA-117Ri can be plugged straight into Alpine’s optional PXA-H100 for full IMPRINT sound optimisation and Bass Engine Pro sound tuning. With IMPRINT, specifically designed software is used with a microphone to analyse the car’s inherit acoustical problems and automatically tunes the system for optimal sound processing. This drastically improves the stage, tonal balance and definition of the music.

The illumination on the stereo’s facia, comes with the choice of four colours – blue, red, green and amber. In addition, the Alpine CDA117Ri allows you to connect an USB memory stick via a port on the rear of the head unit and the songs are automatically arranged in alphabetical order for ease of use. It is also Bluetooth Ready, when upgraded via the optional Alpine Bluetooth interface, offering you full hands free mobile phone access and wide phone compatibility.

DAN - South Africa on 20/09/2012 5 star rating

Folks, this is just an amazing machine.
Have fitted on my little Ford Bantam Bakkie 3 days ago with 2 Targa S/Ws, 2 Targa Amplifiers (one for the S/Ws and one for the midrange and tweeters), Apline midrange (in door pads) and separate tweeter speakers (on .
However, comparing with the display graphic animation capacity of my SONY GT8 series that I have fitted on my BMW 3 years ago, does anyone know if for this Alpine I can download graphics i.e. digital DSP graphic equalizer, VU-meter needles or anything else like some of the old Pioneer and SONY decks have ?!?
Thank you

Great stereo
Karl on 22/05/2012 5 star rating

I'm very impressed with the sound of this Alpine unit, I've not added the Imprint yet, out of the box it sounds much better than my original Skoda unit, much more detail to the sound and the bass is much more refined than previous, seems to have more control and less "boom" definitely more Hi-Fi than anything I've tried before-even on my stock speakers this sounds better than my old Kenwood Mask did when i had my old full Kenwood system!

over the moon
garth on 19/05/2012 5 star rating

this is a fantastic stereo. i wanted a high quality unit that would control my fully active system and have total ipod control. chris in store said he has this stereo so i thought it must be good then if he has it. it is 1 of the few alpines you can change colour on, but that aside it really is a great sounding unit. the equalizer settings are amazing. and i love the different screen displays i can have very much like my old pioneer.
