Re: Just got new Alpine Cda-117
I am a prior owner of a 9883, 9884, and 9886. Also one older Alpine tape deck from 03/04. I was just checking their website since I haven't browsed in awhile. I'm impressed and hoping this means they're thinking of incorporating a better choice of head units with built-in content into their lineup again. Also noticed that the 9884 is gone and the CD 103Bt is now there with built-in bluetooth. Funny coincidence, there really wasn't much meaningful functional difference between the 9886 and 9884 that I could see. And I think they were probably the only mainstream manufacturer left that didn't have an option for people who wanted BT built in instead of through a 200 dollar-plus add-on module. Still not enough choices there for my tastes but good on 'em for making some strides to fix some glaring problems with their line-up. I think this will only lead to better things.
It's still not enough to make me get rid of my Pioneer with built time alignment, 16 band graphic, IPOD capability, and built in bluetooth, but I'll start followimg Alpine again to see what else is in store. For a minute there I thought we'd get down to just a lineup of AM/FM tuners with IMPRINT required at extra charge to unlock everything else including CD playback.
