Ride with HD Radio™

Alpine designed the CDE-134HD CD receiver for all you AM/FM radio lovers. Its built-in HD Radio tuner lets you dial in digital HD Radio broadcasts to get FM that sounds almost as good as a CD, and AM that sounds like traditional FM — a huge leap forward in sound quality. Plus HD Radio stations can take advantage of multicasting, which lets them broadcast multiple channels on the same frequency — giving you more listening options.

Alpine CDE-134HD

Great for your iPod® and iPhone®

Plug in your player to the front-panel USB input, and you can use the CDE-134HD's controls to navigate your iPod's music library. The person riding shotgun will love Passenger Control Mode, which lets them play DJ while you focus on driving. While your iPod's connected and you've got an HD Radio broadcast tuned in, you can "tag" songs you hear for later purchasing from the iTunes® store.

Awesome sound quality

And as always, you can count on Alpine to deliver great sound quality. You can adjust your sound to taste with one of the ten equalizer presets or by using the 3-band parametric EQ. Into power? This receiver works with Alpine's KTP-445A Power Pack, a plug-in amplifier that sends 45 watts RMS to each of your front and rear speakers.

iPod note:
If you're going to use your iPod with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for specific iPod model compatibility.

    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.

    A great head unit for a awesome price. Pretty easy to put in. Sounds great and works great with other alpine products.

    Pros: Great sound for a great price.

    Cons: Took me a little while to get it in.

    Good affordable upgrade from my factory unit in my 99 Silverado. Didn't want to invest much since I only drive five miles each way to work. Added the inline alpine amp and Polk speakers. Plenty of power for me and the sound is good. Love being able to use the USB to play my MP3 files.

    Pros: Easy to install. Flash drive.

    Cons: small buttons

    Bought this my girlfriend and she loves it. It is a huge improvement over her previous stereo just in the sound quality alone. She is also a huge fan of seeing the song information from the radio and iPod.

    Pros: Beautiful integration Easy to install Incredible sound quality

    Cons: None

    Installation went smoothly. Directions were fairly good. I like the quality of HD sound too.

    Pros: Good replacement for stock unit. Brings me up to speed tech wise.

    Cons: Supplied tray was nice but does not hold things well as they continuously are sliding out. It needs a greater angle drop for retention of odds and ends.

    Pros: Easy to install and use.

    Not bad for the money. We got this for my wife's 2007 Rav4 and it is a very nice upgrade from the stock radio. I would definitely recommend this head unit. I also bought the Alpine KTP-445U booster amp and it provides a noticeable improvement to the sound quality. Plus, it fits right inside the dash.

    Pros: Great upgrade over stock. Easy to use.

    Cons: Only two preamp outputs.

    Nice deck! But

    A great deck for a stock replacement but not if you are using an amp. I pulled out a old pioneer and replaced with this unit. Very easy to use and sounds great but has no sub controls and didn't have the power my old pioneer had. Called crutchfield and the customer service was awesome, ordered a new pioneer unit and love it

    Pros: Easy to use

    Cons: No sub control, power

    It was Great! Had this in a 2000 Ford Focus SE Wagon. You can hear the difference when that HD Radio hits. I have this with the Alpine Power Pack.

    Pros: Sound, HD Radio, and looks

    Cons: I have to have the key to the "on" position to have the HU work. Where as the stock unit would play with no key for 30mins. But honestly I can live with out it. NBD

    Bought for my 2004 Dodge Dakota and I must say I am incredibly with the build and sound quality! Huge difference from stock and is an awesome looking product. And the new faceplate fit perfect into the stock ones place. Wiring was relatively easy due to the color coated wires and adapter. Highly recommend to anybody looking for a new radio and head unit!

    Pros: Looks, sound quality, adjustability,

    Cons: None

    Radio is good, USB support is lacking

    I bought this unit because I wanted to listen to HD radio stations and to play music from a flash drive. I'm impressed with the HD radio. It seems to acquire the HD signal faster than other brands. However, I'm disappointed in the USB flash drive support. It won't read my 32GB drive at all. And although it mostly works with my 16GB drive, if USB is selected when the unit powers on, it quite often gives me an error message. I have to switch the input to something else then back to USB to get it to read. This is annoying. Both the 32GB and 16GB flash drives work just fine in my two other non-Alpine units.

    I'm happy with the sound quality. It has a 3-band parametric equalizer that gives me enough control to make it sound good.

    I don't like that when the unit is off, the display is completely blank. It would be nice if it would at least display the clock.

    I didn't try using an iPod or CD yet.

    Pros: Good sound, has HD radio, inexpensive

    Cons: Poor USB flash drive support, no clock display when unit is off

    Installed in a '91 Chevy Silverado C-1500. I purchased the CDE-134HD and RUE-4202 after having purchased an Alpine unit for this truck some 15 yrs ago. Tech support and Sales support very helpful. Current discount ($80.00) made this unit less expensive than what I paid 15 yrs ago (can't say that very often).

    Pros: Unit was essentially a direct swap out regarding chassis, wiring harness, ect. I did splice in the supplied wiring harness though. The wirless remote required installation of the batteries, then immediately worked. Awesome. Installation took all of 30 minutes. Sound (though I've not fully programed the EQ) is awesome.

    Cons: Personally I'm 'old school'. Don't need all of the bell and whistles that some units have. This appears to be a very good basic unit that has some extras that I won't utilize. I know this is my issue, not Alpines.

    The radio in my 2000 Honda Accord needed to be replaced and the Dealer wanted $720 plus $150 to install a factory rebuild replacement. I thought I was just buying an HD Radio, and was ecstatic to find an excellent replacement with CD, USB port, etc. for this price. It greatly exceeds my expectations. Thanks Crutchfield!!!!

    Pros: All I wanted, needed, and SO much more!

    Cons: So what if it doesn't operate the volume and change the channel from the steering wheel - The car is worth $3K - I wasn't going to spend $1K for a factory rebuild radio!!!

    Pros: Simple, clean looks, easy to use sounds great

    Cons: My only complaint is you can not turn off the optional USB

    Great experience! Purchased late Tuesday night, selected standard UPS delivery. The thing showed up here the next day! My 7yo daughter wired the harness that night, and we installed it while were at the bus stop in the morning. Also, it was on sale! So I got a new radio for slightly more than a box store would have charged just to install!

    Pros: HUGE step up from the factory unit. love the Ipod controls...I had stopped using it because I always forgot to turn it off. Now I don't have to. HD radio is the way to go. I've had it before,and it's s little hokey the way it dips in and out of HD signal, but overall it's a definite step up from standard fm. I like the hd for my morning commute. You can actually find music!, not windbags on every channel.

    Cons: none, it's exactly as advertised. The base Alpine is comparable to most other brands top units.

    Display is very good. Sound for most part excellent with a few FM stations OK. Maybe due to rural location. Text on controls small, hard to read. Setting stations fairly easy but read the instructions on PDF file, much better explained than included printed manual. HD stations are great. Removing head unit face plate when parking and leaving my vehicle is great (easy), included case is perfect. Overall, this is an excellent value for less than $100.

    Pros: HD stations, removable face plate. 18. station presets (12 FM, 6 AM). Face plate storage/carry case. Sound quality.

    Cons: Small text on controls.
