Brief summary...

Received an iPod for Christmas and am looking for a head unit that supports iPods. I currently have an Alpine 9813 and am looking to replace that with another head unit that supports iPod playback. Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Geof

Most of the new alpines with iPod support are great. They have a full speed interface which is great.

The newer Alpines have pretty good i-Pod control.

Your HU does support Ipods! You'll need the adaptor. At one time I had a 9813 and 9815 both running my Ipod. If your happy with the sound of your HU? Stick with it, That's one of the better units Alpine made.

Or get a Pioneer 690 and call it good.:)

Well, I've heard that this is one of the better head units, but it's my understanding the way these adaptors work is to transmit through a defunct FM station? That's something I'm not willing to do as it will already kill sound that's already been killed enough via compression. Am I wrong?

Ya, your wrong! I dont call an FM adaptor anything worth using! here's what you need.

I'm not sure why they cost so much? I got mine new for $60. and two years later dumped it on Ebay for $40.(I should have held on to it and sold it now!!)


Here's a cheaper one :

It's one of the better units alpine made, and you're telling him to downgrade to a 690???? WTF. :rolleyes:
