I had a cheap old JVC, **** CD player broke, so I bought a co-worker's old Alpine unit, I think it's the 9801 model, and I gotta say, I .. L O V E.. Alpine headunits, the bass engine etc etc, it sounds nice and rich, thick good.

fyi, the 06 lineup of alpines have less features then the past few years if you're going for that price for a brand new one, maybe try lookin in the classifieds for something ud like?

I looked at the new alpine lineup and was not impressed at all. I wouldnt buy a new one, go with a older model. They are declining fast it looks like.

I would LOVE to get the CDA-9835 model, but I CANNOT find one. Anyone selling one in GOOD condition or know of any dealers online that have some? I have been looking for about 4 days now, and still no luck. I am NOT looking to buy one off eBay through another person as I have had BAD experiences in the past :(

Also, anyone selling the CDA-9815 model? I would take any of these 2 models but preferably the CDA-9815 model. Any sellers or dealers on these 2 models would be appreciated.

Let me know!

Where are these "classifieds" ? Are they part of this site and I am just not seeing it or are you talking about an outside source in general?? Sorry if its a dumb question :/
