Our take on the Alpine CDE-110 by Crutchfield's Ken Nail
Alpine sound for your car
Alpine's CDE-110 CD receiver offers the perfect solution for the driver who wants to upgrade audio performance while staying on budget. You'll be impressed by this Alpine's strong sound quality, user-friendly controls, and options for expansion.
Lots of ways to enjoy your music
The CDE-110 plays your regular store-bought CDs, plus discs you've loaded with MP3 and WMA files. If you like to carry your music on a thumb drive, you can pop it in the USB input on the front panel (no iPod® controls), then access your tunes with the Alpine's controls. The front auxiliary input comes in handy for connecting a portable satellite radio or your iPod.
Thanks to the receiver's powerful built-in amp, you should experience a big jump in power and clarity over your factory radio. If you're looking for even more performance, a set of preamp outputs provides a convenient connection for an outboard amp or a powered sub.
Very good receiver for the money
