Hi Everyone,
I am getting ready for the new IPOD interface to come out and I am trying to decide which deck I want.

My system, currently in my 1993 Acura Legend Coupe is:

1 10" Type R Sub,
Alpine MRD M500
Alpine MRV F540
Alpine Type R 6.5 Components
Alpine Type R 6x9
Alpine CDA-W550 Double DIN tape deck

For a deck I want:

IPOD interface compatibility
Good looks
Time Correction


Now the reason I am posting this is because no one in town seems to stock the 7998 anymore. It seems that this deck has been out for a couple years, even though Alpine still has it on their website. It does not say which model year it is. I have read that the ipod interface only works with the 04 decks and if this deck has been out for a couple years, then it wont work right?

I am considering either the 9833 or the 9835 from Alpine, but I really like the looks of the 7998.

Any comments would be much appreciated.

Thx.

:)

The 04 models seem quite pricey, but if you need ipod interface capabilities, guess you have to find out if the older models will takit or not.

I thought the ipod interface was only for 04? I don't think it will work with a 7998, but I could be mistaken.

Well thats what Alpines website says. But the 7998 is still on the website and it is an AI-net deck so that is where I am kinda confused.

Yeah, but the 7998 isn't a 2004 deck. To make sure, call Alpine(or call Crutchfield, an authorized dealer, and ask them).
