    Alpine CDA-9887 Listed in Crutchfield

    Like the title says, their website reflects "none in stock" though. Alpine does not even have it listed in their product lineup yet. "Summer Release" I suppose.

    Sound's promising as compared to some of their other models as of late. They mention an outboard sound tool but do not elaborate on it much.

    Alpine's website makes a mention of it from a January tech brief something about being able to use a PC and software to custom tune it to the acoustics of your vehicle made or designed by Audyssey the folks that Denon uses in their AV receiver's for room adjustments. I think it is more of an installer's/shop tool than an everyday user.

    See summary here:

    http://www.crutchfield.com/S-yCiyY4x...500CDA9887#Tab

    I wonder what the quality will be like though, hmmmmmmm. We'll see.

    Looks like I may have to keep waiting until they make a product comparable to my 7998, without paying the $$$ for the 7990/9990.

    Stock Alpine System Actively Crossed Over & Amped w/CD 6-Disc Changer System with a/d/s 235is comps in front (3-Ways front, 2-Ways rear) sounds really good. All functions are displayed on the dash's check control display module.

    well I heard the same thing from an Alpine dealer, if its like Audessey than it should be somewhat end user friendly for those who read manuals

    Very similar technology to their new oem integration processor PXE-H650 also coming out.. The 9887 needs the extra toolkit for the auto-calibration but I think (keyword: think) the mike and setup capability may be included with the 650.

    Big difference being adding more processing onto the end of the already atrocious OEM processing, verses a fresh head unit with it's own burr-browns and internal processing. Would take a lot to convince me the 9887 wouldn't sound light-years better/cleaner.

    So Alpine finally going back to internal active HUs or would you still need external.

    Can it control the pdx amps like the older series?

    the 9887 should be available this summer. That HU (iirc) is a fully active HU. Has alot of nice features, but many pointless features as well. I have 2 7998's and would buy those over new alpine any day.

    What happened to Alpine's color displays on their highend units?

    That display looks like it belongs on a stripped down model they sell through Circuit City.

    Actually, to me, it looks a bit more high-end without the flashy screen.
    Less is more...
    I'd rather they put the cash under the hood instead of a cheezy shell.

    Reason the big 3 carmakers spend more cash in their fugly bodystyle designs than in drivetrain development and assembly/reliability/performance improvement.



    Flashy crap:



    Clean no-bling high-end:



    If you think about it.. You're buying what goes into your ears anyway, right?

    The word I hear is that it will control a h701.. but that is what I hear and not fact yet. Stock it is pretty much a clone to a 9835 with a better faceplate and updated firmware. If all holds true it will be the best sq deck they have made since the 9835. I am game time alignment, stellar built in crossover and 5 band parametric is a great start to a great deck. Add in a better eq with an add on unit and I am very happy.



    www.garage1217.com is a good place to get raw leds & parts for custom vehicle lighting!

    Just get on the email notification when they're in stock. Saves everyone time. When it hit's Crutchfields shelves, you'll get an email.

    I have been waiting for a couple of months. I am taking back my deck and waiting for the new one. Just going to put in a junk deck for now, so I have some sound.
