Crutchfield has just listed them on their site with a release date of 3/7/2005 on the 9853 and a out of stock on the 9855. Looks like i am going to wait till next month to order my new cd player but I can't wait to get my hands on a 9853 :D

Crap and I just bought the CDA-9835! I wonder if ABT will take mine back so I can get that one! Looks nice and I'm loving the new touch pad!

Yeah the touch pad and the 5 band equalizer is what made me change my mind from the 9851 to the 9853. I am hoping the menus are easier to navigate with the touch pad as I know my friends 9831 and it is a pain to access everything

Don't buy audio from ABT. It is over priced and the same quality as anywhere else. Your first mistake was buying from ABT... I only buy from there when I have a gift certificate. Buy off ebay or crutchfield or even a trustworthy aduio store in the city... (By city I mean Chicago.)

I hope we will still be able to cut the internal amp off.

Would be worthless to return it for a touch pad..? *LOL* man... I am personally worried that it will not hold up to well in the heat and over time like my laptop touch pads...

that's a typo on crutchfield. if you look at the main description it listed 4volts and on their site it's listed as having 4 volts preouts.

Um, Crutchfield is notoriously overpriced. Great service though.

whats up with the price, the 9855 is 100 bucks cheaper than the 9835!!!!...

I thought it was suppose to be the replacement for the 9835.

I do not really know, i have noticed this to. It kind of looks like some features are missing. :uhoh:

things are getting shady. alpine's starting to turn me off and kenwood is appealing to me again. and i said i'd never own another kenwood..

sorry for the double post but crutchfield has a lotta typos it's pissing me off. and alpine only has the 9851 on their site. i'd sell my 9830 for it if it only had 4v preouts. too bad. i dont even need 3 either. i hate the display on the 9830, so unreadable in the daytime. the dot matrix looks like a better setup. and the girls keeps saying blue button alpines look better but whatever

Yeah it is making it difficult to actually see what the specs are on the new units. :crying:

The 9855 doesn't have the V-Max amp?


Was this a problem area in the 9835?

I might have to change my order from the 9833 to the 9853 now that I see the actual features it will have. Thanks for the great link. :)

I notice that the link to the 55 has a typo also, One part of that link says it has a 5 band parametric and the other portion says it has a 6 band... interesting...

It was not a problem, but at the sime time was not needed for I imaging 99% of the people who forked out the cash for the 9835 had seperate amps anyways.

Alpine has added the manuels for these two hu's on their site. They apparently let you have a choice between a graphic eq and a parametric eq, this is a bonus for me :) I also like how they have made use of the glide bar, it should make for adjusting stuff a little quicker.

Yeah it does, theres just no "Tilt" button anymore. You have to access it via the "Menu" button then select "Tilt Adjust".

Any radio that wishes you a Happy New Year when you turn it on January first gets an A in my book. Ive been rockin the 9835 for 6 months now and ill never regret buying it. I couldnt be happier with the graphics and the detail of the screen.

Dood, no joke. Once you input the date it knows all. I always forget but it wishes you a Happy New Year, Merry Christmas, Happy Fourth of July, Happy Easter and Happy Halloween. Maybe more but I havent had it long enough. When I disconnected the power to move my radio to the second battery I lost the presets and it reset to January 1st and thats when I learned about it.

i just bought my 9835. i couldnt wait either. i got a 3 year warranty and if it does get stolen and i make a police report and go back to the store i bought it from within 30 days, they will give me $100 credit towards a new HU.
