Review 1 of 18

Price Paid:  $230.00 from Audio/Video Store

Year / Model Reviewed:
2001 CDA-7873

Strengths:
Pre-amp outputs, eq controls, and high/low pass crossovers.

Weaknesses:
Recently, I have been unable to adjust the sub output, as if the button wasn't working. After 8yrs of use, things could be much worse.

Summary:
I have been using this unit for the past 8 years. I have really loved its robustness and quality sound. Overall, I am extremely happy with this hu.

Review 2 of 18

Price Paid:  $200.00 from Halfords UK

Year / Model Reviewed:
2001 Alpine CDA 7873

Strengths:
-Power and no. of outputs. -Ease of use and installation. -Bright easy to read display

Weaknesses:
-Fairly average radio reception -I feel it looks a bit dated now but with everything it's got going for it that really isn't enough to make me want to swap it.

Summary:
Absolutely love this unit, only grief is with the radio reception but I have found that this is true of all Alpine heads. It pumps out a masive 4 volt pre-out for the sub which is more than enough to power my kicker solo baric 12 inch square combined with a jbl monoblock. Reads all my cd'rs and ive got my mobile hooked in too with a handy cut-sound feature. Loving the aux input aswell which handles my ipod easily, but can also do tv and games consoles! The unit even powers a couple of footwell neons for me! Overall, more than enough head than you'll ever need :)

Price Paid:  $299.00 from circuit city

Year / Model Reviewed:
2001 7873

Strengths:
looks nice sounds great not to expensive

Weaknesses:
will skip if you have lots of bass

Summary:
This is a decent head unit to have for the normal person who wants a moderate system, looks nice sound great and retail is not to expensive....however if you have a serious system "like me" with alot of bass this unit will not be able to handle it and the songs will skip.

Review 4 of 18

Price Paid:  $0.00 from Sounds on Wheels

Year / Model Reviewed:
2002 alpine cda-7873

Strengths:
The built in bbe is awesome.

Weaknesses:
None I could find.

Summary:
This player has been the best unit I've ever used. Installed in a 95 honda accord with stock speakers and it sounded awesome. The functionality is amazing and the built in bbe processor (for those that know how to use it) transformed my audio and brought amazing warmth and clarity. I would recommend this unit to anyone looking for a good head. It has plenty of power, great features, and great sound with good tonal shaping ability.
