Customer reviews

Excellent sound
ray tong on 25/12/2016 4 star rating

THe is very feature rich, currently this is the only unit apart from the Alpine UTE-93DAb that supports FLAC files ( basically cd quality) and DAB radio. Excellent sound but I found the 1 line display very limiting.I previously owned a CDA 117 and I really miss the 2 line display. The headunit controls have also been simplified too much so I found it harder to navigate through menus and change tracks. THe head unit feels a bit cheap, looks like a sub £100 unit but the sound is amazing. If Alpine release a headunit with better display with FLAC support, I would probably upgrade.

Hard to use
Richard on 24/11/2016 2 star rating

To do anything with this unit you need the instruction manual, there is no way to figure out how to turn demo mode off, how to tune radio stations, how to turn off the traffic announcements at incredible volume as the buttons do not have any indication that you should hold "Audio / Setup" for 2 seconds to bring up a main menu, then select "General" etc... Other than that it seems to work okay-ish but Alpine wasted no time designing the user interface. I would avoid this entirely.

Alpine

Was at your Ilford store to have this installed in my Mazda MX5. The team did a great job. Unit sounds awesome and work flawless.
