Review 1 of 10

Price Paid:  $329.00 from Autohaus in Napa CA

Year / Model Reviewed:
2003 alpine cda-9815

Strengths:
everything about it. period.

Weaknesses:
the fact that it's discontinued, and inexperienced users may become frustrated with all of the sound shaping features. For those people, I recommend the 9821 or something along that range.

Summary:
Audiophile heaven. selectable f/r/s or l/m/h active crossovers with selectable slopes, 5 band eq with selectable slope/frequencies, individual attenuation of all 3 channels up to -15 db, 6 channel time correction, 2 line dot matrix display with 2 selectable easy to read fonts, etc. etc. etc.

Review 2 of 10

Price Paid:  $340.00 from ebay

Year / Model Reviewed:
2003 CDA/9815

Strengths:
lots of options for eq/crossover settings 60x4 amp time correction I-Personalize looks beautiful motorized face

Weaknesses:
eq and crossover settings can be tricky, but after playing with it for little it gets easier. I-Personalize also helps.

Summary:
This unit has it all. You can always count on alpine to deliver the very best head units. This is my third alpine h/u and is by far the best. I upgraded to this from the cda-7893 for the mp3 playback.

Review 5 of 10

Price Paid:  $400.00 from E-Bay

Year / Model Reviewed:
2004 Alpine CDA-9815

Strengths:
Many options, nice look, amazing sound, worth everything dollar I payed..

Weaknesses:
I had trouble with a CD-R I burned. It had about 150 songs on it. When I went to put it on the last track from the first, it had alot of trouble reading it. Not too big a deal though.

Summary:
I used to own a Panasonic MP3/WMA CD player, it was decent but didnt have the sound or options I wanted. I invested some money into this little gem and it was well worth it. Oh and let me explain a few of the "Weaknesses" left by other reviews. First of all, the buttons cant fade out b/c they are a clear plastic not white paint type stuff. Second, the screen wont die out or fade out, ive used many alpines and never once had a display problem, lastly, the "No Support" problem.. read the manual.

Similar Products Used:
older alpine models then went to blaupunkt for awhile, then panasonic (haha what a joke), and back to Alpine..
