new and old. looked around a bit and didn't see a thread close to this so i figured i'd make 1. was looking for an alpine, but i don't really like the new ones, the faces look ugly imo. so what are some of the best alpine decks out there from old to new that 1 should watch out for?

The only thing Id buy out of the current line that's out if I had to do it again would be the 9887. Everything else in the new line is just a CD player with over-hyped bass and treble controls until you fork over more money to 'unlock' things. With the new line I think they invested so much money and time in developing Imprint that they wanted to make sure to get a return on their investment and they can't do that if nobody buys it. So they actually removed the important sq features from most of their HUs so people who want more tunability would have to buy the kit. Otherwise what happens is customers are satisfied enough with a decent 7-13 band, t/a, and ease of use from it being built in to the HU that if they want more out of their system later they'll just buy some other manufacturer's 15 or 30 band and call it a day and imprint units end up gathering dust on warehouse shelves.

personally i dont usally buy used hu's.i kept on hearing all this hype about the 9835 and my9825 was having some kind of problem after 3 yrs.so i figured y not,i'll buy the one off of ebay and give the 9835 a shot.turns out that this is my favorite hu of all time.love it so much that i bought another one in mint condition for $212 shipped.ive never bought a used hu before until now,,and 2 of them mind you.thats y yesterday i mentioned the one of off ebay going for 100 to maybe help someone out lol.these dont come along everyday and are excellent hu's .i bought 2 of them cause i plan on running this hu for a long time and alpine said if it goes down,they can refurbish it which is good enough for me.im the type of person when i find something that works really well,i tend to stay with it.and i would not have recommended the 9835 if i thought it wasnt worth mentioning.peace

I was talking about the newest line: 9872, 9874, 9884, 9886, 9887. I know before they used to make some stuff that was really geared towards SQ, the whole new line really is designed to make serious audiophiles buy IMPRINT. But to specify, Im not arguing with anyoone's old school recommendations but if you're an SQ person, in my opinion there's nothing worth buying that they're making right now aside from the 9887.

well i have the opinion that the only deck out of the newest line really worth it that has the best features is the 9887. they want a grip for that deck, and it doesn't really seem worth it to me so i thought i'd look into some of the older lines that imo seem better than the new line of decks they got. if i was going to get something newer i'd prolly just get a flip out.

The 9835 is a nice headunit, one of the better ones available however it does not even compare to something like the 7990..

well right now a friend has a 9835 i'm thinkin about coppin'. don't think i'd be able to affored a f1 status deck, although they look really nice, especially that 7990. what are some opinions on the 7897 or 7998 with the fantom face? they look really sweet how the face hides and all that, but i've heard people have had problems with the face mechanism jamming up, cd function problems, etc. thoughts???

I think there are a couple of people on here with one, i had one at one point but never got to install it.
I really like the iva-w series as well, with control over the h701 its hard to beat

Probably atleast 7 years ago. Anyone who has opened up an Alpine these days will find them built on the cheap by Chinese kids. I know someone who repairs decks and Alpine repair is a good chunk of his business.
