Combining Alpine’s new Bass Engine SQ control with legendary sound quality, the CDE-152 CD receiver is a reliable choice for MP3/WMA/AAC playback and good sound control.
This one-stop music player has a clean LCD Display with fixed classic blue illumination. Alpine's signature rotary knob makes controlling all your music a breeze. This unit also comes with a convenient front panel auxiliary input - so you or your passenger can plug in a portable media player as an additional music source.
Bass Engine SQ tuning is a new feature that changes bass sound characteristics by automatically adjusting different combinations of EQ, Sub Level and Crossover settings through the choice of five bass profiles (Standard, Punch, Rich, Mid Bass, Low Bass). Use the convenient Bass button on the front panel to choose the setting you prefer.
With a dedicated USB input and USB cable, you can even connect USB memory devices like thumbdrives. Song lists on USB devices are displayed in alphabetical order and allow eight levels of file / folder search capabilities. This unit will find music files while ignoring other file types on the USB device.
Note: MP3 device or cell phone cannot be independently controlled through the head unit.
It’s convenient to control your iPod or iPhone music in the car – enjoy seamless operation of your iPod in addition to full control of all your favorite media sources. Control all search options of your iPod directly from the CDE-152 via Playlist, Artist, Album, Song, Genre, Podcast or Composer. The USB connection allows for high-quality iPod playback and delivers an even faster access speed so you’ll find songs as quickly as you expect to find them on your iPod.
Get access to and control of all the songs from your iPod or iPhone right from the head unit! Large music libraries are no problem with a faster connection speed. With Quick Search featuring Alphabet Search, you can easily scroll through long lists of music by skipping through the letters of the alphabet. Once you find the letter you want, you can jump to the exact song! With so many ways to listen to thousands of songs, now you can get super-fast access to Playlist, Artist, Album, Song, Podcast, Genre and Composer.
Standard in-vehicle solutions may drain the battery of your phone, but with the CDE-152, your phone charges via the USB cable, so you can enjoy nonstop music and power your phone at the same time.
Listen to even more music from your iPhone or iPod with App Direct Mode. This feature offers basic app control (Play, Pause, Track Forward, Track Back) and metadata directly on the head unit from numerous third-party apps so that you can enjoy your drive even more and expand your listening choices without fumbling with your phone.

The setting – Bass, Mid and Treble- can be adjusted in the 3-Band Parametric mode.
