Do you love PANDORA® Internet radio? You're not alone — millions of people enjoy creating their own stations and discovering new music with PANDORA®. Alpine makes it easy for you to take your stations on the road with the CDE-123 CD receiver. Just download a free app, connect your iPhone®, and you can dial in PANDORA® right from your dash. Dedicated "thumbs up" and "thumbs down" buttons let you rate songs on the fly so PANDORA® knows what songs to play for you. You can even create a new station right from the CDE-123 while something you like is playing.
Two USB inputs for maximum flexibility
Alpine gives you USB inputs on the front and rear of the CDE-123. That gives you all kinds of playback options — you could dedicate the rear output to your iPod, while leaving the front slot free for a thumb drive loaded with digital files. Or your friend can connect his iPod to the front input while yours remains attached to the rear input, then you can use the CDE-123 to cycle between players. With two inputs, you won't need to disconnect your iPod when someone else wants to play a song for you.
Add satellite radio
Put the endless entertainment of SiriusXM Satellite Radio at your fingertips with the low-profile SXV200 XM tuner. You can pause and rewind live broadcasts, and get a heads up when your favorite artists or teams are playing on another channel. And with an iPod connected, you can tag songs for purchasing later in the iTunes™ store.
Boost your power and add on to your system
Three sets of preamp outputs provide convenient connections for your amps and subs, and you can use the subwoofer level control to dial in the right amount of bass. Then dial in the right sound using the 3-band parametric EQ, or choose from one of the six preset options. One more cool feature — this receiver works with Alpine's Power Pack, a compact box that hooks up easily to your receiver, boosting its power from 18 watts up to a serious 45 watts RMS per channel.
Want to keep your steering wheel controls?
In most vehicles, you can use an adapter to connect your vehicle's steering wheel controls to this Alpine stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and the Alpine, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. Check the "Accessories" tab for compatible adapters.
Note: If you're going to use your iPod with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for specific iPod model compatibility with this receiver or its optional iPod adapter.
