View Full Version : Bought a Alpine 9831 mp3

I have to say that the look of this thing is amazing. This is the 4th Alpine deck I have had in 5 years, so obviously Alpine got me addicted to their crisp sound quality from their earlier models.

I do have a few comments on the 9831.

1 - Why is there no manual treble/bass adjustment? All you can do is change frequencies and their preset audio (pop, rock, hip-hop, news, etc...) My MB Quartz are not as crystal clear as they were with the CDA-7893 when I could turn up my treble to 7.

2 - It takes about 10 seconds for a mp3 disc to load. Is this normal for an mp3 player? This is my first mp3 car CD player, so it may be...

3 - One more thing is that the color scheme is missing black and white in the 512 colors you can change the buttons. A black or white button scheme would look really sick!

You can check out my installs on my cardomain site, did it all myself....
