Comments: Great receiver for the audiophile at heart. I have had mine for over eight years now and tho it's had some problems Alpine has always been great about repairing and replacing parts. One of the most appealing face plate designs by Alpine.
Comments: Great product. Love the fact it gives me control over all my speakers and bass from a nice and simple head unit. Best part is the hidden ipod usb that runs from the back to the glove compartment.
