Original Price: $279.99
With Alpine's CDA-9807 CD receiver, you can listen to MP3 and Windows Media (WMA) files when you're on the go without bringing any extra equipment. Just record your music onto disc, and you're ready to roll! With all that music available (up to 10 hours per disc), sometimes you need to find a specific song. Alpine makes it easy to navigate through the disc by including a wireless remote.
Your tunes are brought to life by 4 channels of 23 watts RMS MOSFET power. Media Xpander restores the life that's lost when music is broadcast or compressed. Alpine's Bass Engine® lets you pick the bass and treble center frequencies, choose the width of the bass boost, and adjust the subwoofer level, so you can refine the sound until it's as polished as the CDA-9807's sleek silver and blue faceplate.
Put 6 or 12 discs at your command by adding an Alpine CD changer, or use the optional adapter to convert the changer controls to an auxiliary input. Something else you'll want to add is Alpine's XM Satellite Radio tuner and an XM antenna so you can activate your XM service. Give it a try and you'll wonder how you ever listened to radio before XM!Details:

Why replace your factory radio?
Two good reasons - sound quality and cool features. A new car stereo offers power that's superior to most factory radios, along with more sophisticated tone controls. And most car stereos offer built-in or optional features that add safety and fun to life in your car, including inputs for your iPod or MP3 player, Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free cell phone calls, satellite radio or HD Radio reception, and connections for building an audio system in your car.

MX (MediaXpander): The CDA-9807 features the MediaXpander function, which is offered on Bass Engine Pro, Bass Engine Plus, and some Bass Engine models. The MediaXpander function makes vocals or instruments sound distinct by restoring sound quality typically lost during recording or transmission; this function helps restore audio information that becomes obscured when audio is compressed. The MX function can be applied to all sources, except AM radio. There are three expansion modes for each internal source (CD, FM), and each source can have its own setting. There are only one or two expansion modes available for external sources.
