Hey guys,

Im thinking about replacing my Pioneer 7700 headunit with an Alpine iDA-X100 like the title suggests and was wondering if anyone has ran them/is running them. They seem pretty solid and have plenty of features and wanted some input.

Thanks in advance :)

No motorized face plate because it doesn't have a cd player...The faceplate pops off and the screen stays with the unit, so the removable part is some buttons and the knob...

If you want a cd player then you need a 9886/9887 or a cd changer...

I have seen the 100's as low as 220.00 but can'tr remember where...

Shoot, didnt notice that part (*slaps self on forehead)....but I can just get a changer if I really need cd's I guess and for comps I can have another headunit outside of the cars anyways in NW...meh, it'll still work

dude you cant get that your name is pioneer saturn,
but in seriousness its a good deck just no cd player, but honestly those who use ipod all the time can probably chime in and not be able to tell you the last time they even put a cd in their decks

I had it, liked it, obviously the best ipod interface BY FAR!
if all you use is your ipod i recommend it.

I have it and love it...ands its a big improvement on the previous years model. I haven't used CD's in about two years now (had a cd player/ipod deck about 6 months ago)

The only gripe I have with it is that the Pre-outs are 2V but even then I don't think they hit that.

That's right, I have an 80gb Ipod and a 9887. I haven't used the cd player since. I hate carrying cd's now that I have an Ipod. Cd's are a hassle compared to an Ipod IMO.

How is the FM sq? Worse than maybe the 9886 or 9887?

my only complaint with the x100 is that on occasion it locks up my iPod. i won't notice it until i turn on the x100 and it shows a error message, then i have to manually reset my ipod to continue

I haven't had this problem...maybe only with some iPods. I have the 30GB Gen 5? (Maybe 4)

i have the 80gb ipod classic. when i say locked up the ipod is just "stuck" and won't respond to any input until i hold the menu and center button to reset it. as i posted above, i don't notice when the ipod is locked up -- i'll turn on the x100 and it will give me an error message, then i'll check the ipod and find it stuck

this doesn't happen often, just at annoying times

If you want to use a portable cd/dvd player or any other device with a headphone jack you can get this cable, then you can play whatever. Full Speed AUX+ input (using optional KCE-236B) http://www.crutchfield.com/App/Product/Item/Main.aspx?search=kce%2D236b&i=500KCE236B

This happens with my 160GB Classic as well.:rolleyes:

I just got the X100 and the iPod Classic 160GB. I am hoping I won't have this problem.

By the way I love the iPod control on this thing. Specifically the percentage search. 10 turns and I am down to the bottom of 300 artists. Love it. Plus the screen kicks *** with putting your own wallpaper on it, etc.

hey Flipside, how is the 200? I'm thinking about getting that (over the 300) if IMPRINT is really worth it...
