I'm looking to replace the head unit in my truck. Specifically I'm looking at the CDA-9831. <BR> <BR>Specs: <a href="http://www.cartoys.com/Default.cfm/p/CDA_9831_AM_FM_MP3_CD_Player" target="_blank">http://www.cartoys.com/Default.cfm/p/CDA_9831_AM_FM_MP3_CD_Player</a> <BR> <BR>I like the 3pr. 4v preouts and iPersonalize sound tuning features. Any other suggestions/recommendations? <BR> <BR>-Steve

i second the alpine head units, the interface with the ipod is really cool, no more scrolling through the ipod wheel while driving. Just set it secure in the glove box.

I have the 9833 in my car (I guess one notch up from the 9831?), it replaced a 9813 which is now in my boat. It is pretty good, but I think that I like the 9813 better. The 9813 is basically an older version of the 9833. They have the same features on paper, but the 9813 seems to access faster, especially MP3/WMA disks. I also feel like the 9813 sounds a little better?? <BR> <BR>Overall I have been pretty happy with both, but I personally feel tha Alpine has been going downhill for a while (especially looking at the specs of their recent offerings on Crutchfield).

Well I ended up getting the CDA-9831 on ebay for <$100. I'll post up my opinion on it when I install it this week. <BR> <BR>-Steve
