View Full Version : time for a Alpine 9857 upgrade?

04-05-2011, 10:17 PM
I have the 9857 in my car now, but it seems to be skipping on all inputs when i hit a bump. Im not sure what it is but I would like to replace it. What would be a upgrade to this model? I mainly use it for ipod. I would like something that can integrate with my iphone (pandora, audio from youtube) and charge it. Also, i really like to keep the feature of the led screen instead of the alarm clock font if possible. I would like to spend under 250 but the lower the better.

I move to list good alpine models and what makes them better in terms on sound quality, pre-outs, functionality.

I need to find a good HU as well.

cda-105 is cheap used. I dont see the poitn in buying a high level alpine unit though, they all do the same. 24bit dac bass/treble eq 2v preouts. just find one thats cheap and do imprint if you gotta have sqs
