I have been lucky enough to own this tremendous unit since its release date, approximatley a year and half ago. I also have the previous years model and that is also in use. Alpine have given the user a polished bubble screen and a curvier design form their past creations which has given the unit a needed upgrade from its earlier carnations. The sound quality is, as ever, of the highest standard, and when used in conjunction with the CD-autochanger the sound truely is astounding. The new angling function allows the face of the unit to tilt at varing degrees to allow the user to view the screen with ease and without having to change head position while driving. On board Sub-woofer control, two-tone backlighting, RDS, BBE, 2xRCA outputs, Autochanger Input and Perspective control are just some of the features that i could go on about, but i won't.
