Seems that Alpine has not totally abandoned the CDA line, and some of the processing abilities that came with it.

Personally I think Alpine could do better. At least give the user high pass and low pass filters if someone wanted to go 2/3way active.

Do they normally push new high end single DINs to the UK before the US? Isn't it the other way around?

349.99 British pounds and they're still pushing a separate Imprint module!?

That's about $560 USD. Meh, not for me.

Looks like they are stepping it up with this single din monitor unit, IVA-D800R. It has processing abilities as well as a copper plated chassis.

Alpine can make as many new CDA receivers as they want but the fact remains that you have to pay for imprint to use additional features that other companies such as Kenwood, Pioneer have standard in their head units. I was a faithful Alpine user since 1988 but no longer. Until they make head units that are loaded with features that I do not have to buy extra processors to use I am staying clear of Alpine.

The 7200 is nice! I have got to figure that dang thing out, tho. I'm on a learning curve. It was actually the very first HU I've ever installed and used. lololol

I really don't understand why they didn't do this. Kinda ruins it for me... but it looks so good...

Slightly off topic... but how does "raw" unadjusted sound quality compare between the various CDA models? What about CDA vs CDE, for example, a 9857 vs a newer CDE-121?

Eclipse made some very nice SQ decks. I still have a CD7000 & a CD8455. The only problem with several of Eclipse's top units was their ease of use. I prefer being able to put most of my attention to driving instead of my HU while the car is moving.

But then you wouldn't have to buy separate modules so you spend twice as much, to get the control that other manufacturer's include built-in to their receiver. Which would mean that it's not Alpine. I'm surprised it has the T/A and EQ's built in, all it's missing is crossovers. But it's a $500+ deck, so I guess that's fair.... :sneaky:
