Review 2 of 7

Price Paid:  $900.00 from Hi Fi buys

Strengths:
This unit is sick!!Awesome display with easy to use features and produces and awesome sound through your amp of choice due to being a dead head!!Bass engin and time correction with the parrametric eq are def a plus when usin for SQ!!!I would buy this unit over and over again if they were still in production.Best thing since the 7909!!Hands down!

Weaknesses:
The motorized face and gearing mech is the only down fall to this unit.It has to be treated with the upmost care to prevent anyone or anything from bumping the screen.bumping the face real hard can prevent the face from going back in the unit correctly.

Summary:
Other than the gearing on the face bein a sometimes issue ,The 7998 is by far one of the best head units made on the planet.Im just sorry alpine quit making this unit or I would have one in every car I own.Flashy,easy to use and just all around good unit to have in any car from everyday use to competions!

Review 4 of 7

Price Paid:  $1250.00 from Gary's car radio (au

Year / Model Reviewed:
2002 Alpine CDA 7998R

Strengths:
sound quality, parametric eq, crossover, nice display and 4v preouts

Weaknesses:
menu sytem is a touch fiddly, phone function works only with nokia handsets (and needs an expensive add on!)

Summary:
(price in AUD) This is probably alpine's best CD tuner yet! detailed sound adjustments like multi crossover with variable slope, parametric eq, time correction etc are possible. The 4V preouts certainly help the amps. i'm using JLaudio amps/subs, and focal components. the sound is clear and detailed. the unit has no internal amp, but anyone willing to spend this kinda money on CD tuners would'nt want one. The menu system is less than intuitive. The remote is pretty basic. MP3 feature is good but CDs obviously sound a lot better. And the media expander function doesnt make sense.

Review 5 of 7

Price Paid:  $799.00 from Sound Advice

Year / Model Reviewed:
2002 Alpine CDA-7998

Strengths:
Great sound/display. Phantom face. Lots of options.

Weaknesses:
Tough to cycle through all the options and features.(Don't recommend playing with it while driving) Phone features only work with Nokia phones and the adapter costs $300. Basically a useless feature unless you will spend the money or switch your phone plan to have a Nokia phone.

Summary:
Overall a great deck. Love the over sized face. Great display/matches perfectly to the colors in my Firebird. Awesome sound quality.
