App Direct Mode opens up more music
If you've got an iPhone®, you know that the music you've stored on it is only part of the story — streaming apps let you tune into a plethora of music and other programs. Alpine's CDE-141 CD receiver features App Direct Mode, giving you access to select music apps, so you can tune in and enjoy this content. App Direct Mode offers limited control over your apps and displays metadata so you'll know at a glance the name of song and the artist that's playing.
Great for your stored iPod® and iPhone® content too
Of course, you can also use the CDE-141's controls to navigate your iPod's music library, thanks to a convenient front-panel USB input — just plug in your device and get ready to groove. Alpine's rotary encoder makes really easy to find your favorite songs, albums, artists, or playlists quickly. Your copilots will love Passenger Control Mode, which lets them play DJ while you focus on driving.
Intelligent layout and user-friendly controls are an Alpine trademark.
Control and expand your system
A powerful internal amp gives you plenty of headroom to turn up the volume without the sound getting distorted and harsh. You can adjust the overall tone to taste with the 3-band parametric EQ, which allows you to choose the centerpoint for your bass, midrange, and treble controls.
If you want to take performance up another notch, you can plug Alpine's KTP-445A Power Pack directly into to the CDE-141. This plug-and-play powerhouse kicks up the output to a robust 45 watts RMS per channel, but it requires almost no wiring and takes up very little space. If you want to bring on the bass, this Alpine also features two sets of RCA preamp outputs, perfect for adding a powered sub or an amp.
