Convenience at a smart price
The CDE-147BT CD receiver kicks off Alpine's line of Bluetooth® equipped receivers for 2013. It lets you make and take calls hands-free when you're in the car, so you can keep your attention on the road while you talk — no fumbling for the phone or driving with one hand in busy traffic. And you can stream audio from your Bluetooth devices too, with receiver control of basic functions like "track up" and "track down." Plus, Alpine's Quad illumination lets you choose from four different colors for the receiver's control buttons for a style that'll work in your car.
Sound quality customization with social networking
Alpine's new TuneIt App lets you tap into the power of your Android™, iPhone®, and the cloud to customize this receiver's sound output for your car. Download the TuneIt app and you'll have access to over 3000 custom sound parameters from Alpine's servers. The sound parameters tailor the CDE-147BT's 9-band equalizer, digital time correction, high- and low-pass filters, and Media Xpander to tune your system to match your car model, car type, and listening position. And you can share your custom settings with others and even get feedback through Facebook.
Choose from four different button colors.
The CDE-147BT offers a handy front-panel auxiliary input and a rear USB port with an extension cable. Alpine's App Direct Mode lets you control basic playback and view metadata from many iPhone music apps, and you'll have full control over the music stored on your iPhone or iPod® when connected by USB. Of course you can enjoy your CDs too, including discs loaded with MP3, WMA, or AAC music files.
Want more power? You can add Alpine's KTP-445A Power Pack, a compact plug-and-play solution that brings this receiver's power output up to 45 watts RMS per channel. Or you can hook up conventional external amplifiers to the three sets of high-voltage preamp outputs to create a killer system for your ride.
Want to keep your steering wheel controls?
In most vehicles, you can use an adapter (not included) 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.
