Simply serious sound
Alpine built the CDA-105 as a no-nonsense music machine that will serve as your control center for even the most sophisticated audio system.
Play your favorite CDs, or load up a disc with your favorite MP3, WMA, and AAC files. Pack a USB flash drive to the brim for even more options. Whatever your source, Alpine's digital-to-audio converter and impressive internal amplifier will do justice to your favorite driving music.
Adding on to your system
You'll get full control of your iPod® even your iPhone® through the CDA-105's USB slot. No adapter is necessary, but Alpine includes an iPod cable so you can leave your other cable at home. The CDA-105 offers three sets of preamp outputs for connecting amps and subs. You can add Alpine's Bluetooth® adapter for safer hands-free calling and audio streaming, or tap into satellite radio's wealth of entertainment with an optional tuner.
For especially big music libraries, Alpine's Percentage Search function uses the preset buttons for quick jumps to specific parts of the list (Preset 1: 0% to 16%, Preset 2: 17% to 32%, Preset 3: 33% to 49%, Preset 4: 50% to 66%, Preset 5: 67% to 82%, Preset 6: 83% to 100% of the song library). Since you can just jump to a segment of your library with a touch of a button, you'll save yourself from scrolling through each song one by one.
Add an HD Radio tuner for improved AM/FM sound quality FM sounds almost like a CD, while AM sounds like traditional FM. And while your iPod's connected, you can even tag songs you hear on HD Radio stations for downloading later in iTunes®. You'll be reminded of the songs you tagged the next time you sync your iPod with your computer.
Fine-tune your sound with IMPRINT
If you're into sound quality, Alpine's optional IMPRINT sound processor and KTX-100 tuning kit can transform your car into the perfect listening space. It uses a microphone to analyze the acoustics in your vehicle, then works with the CDA-105's MultEQ feature to adjust the receiver's output for the best possible audio performance.
Note: If you're going to use your iPod with this receiver, be sure to check Hands-on Research for specific iPod model compatibility with this receiver or its optional iPod adapter.
