As good as it gets for this price. You'll spend a grand to compare to this build quality. They truely don't make 'em like this anymore.
This unit was only trumped by the 7949, but I always thought it had a better display. All of the 79## series by alpine were passive - meaning no internal amp, no heat, and increases SN ratio. I enjoyed this unit so much back in 1998 I just bought another one used on ebay in 2007. If you want an classic with amazing quality, see if you can pick one up. If you listen to mp3 or burned cd's then skip this for a newer unit - or run a newer cd changer. If you prefer sound quality you only play original discs anyway. I'm going to run this with an ERA-G320 for one sweet sound system.
