Product Information

MSRP: $475.00
Average Price: $295.00
Manufacturer: Alpine
Yes: 6 / No: 0

Since its introduction, Alpine CDA 9855 CD Player really brings the best out of my system. I just installed one in my car. It is the top of the line Alpine for "05". It is easily one of the best headunits out there. Alpine CDA 9855 sounds perfectly clear and the display is very bright and easy to see in the sun. It has built in active crossovers as well as a graphic and parametric equalizer. Glidetouch takes a minute to get used to but it makes it much easier and faster to go through the menu's. It is also i-personalize compatable to make it easier to adjust the equalizer and time correction. Overall i highly recommend this Alpine CDA 9855 headunit, you won't be disapointed. It runs about $500 from an authorized Alpine dealer.
This head unit keeps everything in check without needing a processor or passive EQ and the sound Quality is AMAZING even running through the Onboard Amplifier! Alpine CDA 9855 is an awesome addition to any car audio system and can be had at reasonable prices. Great cd play, it plays most all my cd's even if they are scratched. The Alpine CDA 9855 bbe is good, and i like playing with teh high and low pass filters, sub-level control comes in very useful with my 4-MA 12's, it does skip and stuff when i het big bumps and i have to pop it out of teh dash at sound compititions cause my bass makes it skip.
Alpine CDA 9855 bbe and the sub level is great, the pass filters are good. it is a powerful unit, 60w x 4 is huge, bigger than anything else. Alpine CDA 9855 is somewhat expensive even at alittle discount when it first came out. Would recommend to most.

Price: $450.00
Pros: All around great unit, is now a classic.
Cons: CDs can get stuck at times in the player, also old iPod tech means the touch bar is a bit slow to pull a particular song off the iPod.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Classic unit!

Had mine since 2005 and have been very happy with the unit. Unavailable new anymore you can still occasionally find a unit in good shape on eBay. 4V pre outs to six channels make this a full audio system choice for those more tuned to the audiophile world.

Yes I would recommend this unit to a friend tho the review says otherwise.

Pros: slider bar, tripple preout, takes the beats well in a jeep
Cons: it's old, now... outdated model.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Was a great head unit at the time, plays mp3's and has ipod connectivity if you buy the cable for it, which kinda sucks actually... why can't they just make a front loaded jack for this stuff?
