Just wanted to know what people think of the Alpine iDA-X305 before I buy it. I NEVER listen to CD's... I was looking into the Pioneer version thats a 1.5 din, but I read that people complain about the slow scrolling when the ipod is hooked up. Is the alpine any faster? Because I would rather have a 1.5 din, so that I dont have to buy an adapter kit and have it look cheezy..... I have a 2000 silverado.... thanks everyone!!

never had the 305, but i did have the x001 and also the x100 and imprint. i did not like the sq of either unit. my jvc kd-sh1000 and kenwood x993 both have better sq imo (and the kenwood ipod interface is excellent).

didn't care for the alpine iDA series when I heard them, they made speakers sound like cheap headphones.

I have a CDA-9887 in my '08 Silverado (it was in my '99 Silverado until the tranny blew) and I love it...of course, I almost NEVER use the CD, so it would be nice if Alpine came out with a non-CD version of the 9887 with more iPod upgrades. But I love it just the same. :D

there really is no comparison between the 9887 and any ida model.

Based on what I have read about the IDA's, I completely agree! :D

Nay on the IDA's at least until they get it right...Yay on the CDA's, and if you want to run USB and Ipod, the new CDA-105 fits the bill with great sq..
