New Single-DIN In-Dash Receivers from Alpine Electronics

Back January 9, 2018

Torrance, Calif. (Jan. 9, 2018) – Alpine Electronics of America, Inc. has introduced three new single-DIN receivers to its lineup, the CDE-172BT and CDE-170 CD receivers and the UTE-73BT mech-less receiver. Overall, there are seven models in the 2018 lineup which address various technology needs and budgets.

Key Features
The CDE-172BT and UTE-73BT are compatible with Android AOA (Android Open Accessory) 2.0 for music control from an Android™ smartphone through the USB connection. The AOA connection delivers better sound and control over basic Bluetooth® audio streaming, and these functions are delivered through the faceplate keys on each model. Both models are also “Made for iPod® and iPhone®.” Pandora® Music can be accessed from an iPhone® or Android™ phone. The models also have a new high-contrast, 1-line LCD display which delivers five times the contrast of conventional screens, for improved readability in the vehicle.

The CDE-172BT, UTE-73BT and CDE-170 all offer FLAC (Free Lossless Audio Codec) playback via USB, for a more accurate listening experience. The CDE-172BT is also SiriusXM-Ready™ (SXV300 Connect Vehicle Tuner Kit sold separately, SiriusXM subscription required).
