View Full Version : My Alpine Decks Broke

04-01-2006, 06:34 PM
Alright guys, i recently got a Alpine CDA-9851 for christmas, brand new, never opened.. and now the faceplate motor has burned out already, after having the deck for less then 3 months the motor burns out

Anyway im looking for a good replacement and something with a little more features.. i was thinking something along the lines of a 9855, any other opinions?

Personally i like the 9855, ive played with them in bestbuy afew times, the only drawback to them i feel is that it seems like it would take 8 hours straight to finally get all the settings adjusted how you want it, its pretty complex

If you use an ipod you may want to consider the Pioneer Premier DEH-P880PRS. It has a very similar display to the 9855 and it has very nice tunability. I just got rid of my alpine and picked this up today. I will keep my opinions coming as time progresses, but for now I am utterly floored by this HU.

My 9827 still works great....Alpine hasnt impressed me with the 06' models either.

Eclipse FTW.
