Alpine Ships New Head Unit
Alpine Electronics this week began shipping its new CDA-9887 Imprint head unit, an aftermarket in-car audio system that works by removing unwanted background noise. An additional tuning kit aimed at installers, the KTX-100EQ, is now available as well.
The receiver, which uses Alpine’s patented Imprint sound architecture, specifically tailors sound to the interior of individual vehicles, taking into account the size and shape of the car’s interior. Using a 24-bit D/A converter, the receiver offers crystal-clear playback of CD, WMA, mp3, and AAc files. it is also compatible with other Alpine products that connect with iPods and satellite radio receivers.
Available at authorized Alpine dealers, the DA-9887 comes with a suggested retail price of $450. the KTX-100EQ tuning kit is offered at an MSRP of $250.
