PRESS PLAY AND LET ALPINE DO THE REST
With advanced Bluetooth® wireless technology, audio streaming, and FLAC support, the CDE-172BT CD receiver delivers quality phone calls and playback of various music files so you stay in touch and in tune.
HIGH-CONTRAST LCD DISPLAY AND EASY MUSIC CONTROL
This one-stop music player has an LCD display with one-line, RGB illumination for your choice of display color. The new high-contrast LCD display has five times the contrast of a conventional screen, so the display is always easy to read.
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 source.
BEST SOUND QUALITY
For unrivaled sound quality, expect nothing less than the best. The CDE-172BT uses a 24-Bit DAC for ultimate sound quality with all your digital media sources. The 3-band parametric EQ lets you dial in your bass, mids, and treble, while the high pass/low pass crossover lets you protect and manage the right frequencies for your speakers. The CDE-172BT can playback FLAC (Free Lossless Audio Codec) files via USB, for a more quality listening experience. With three 4V preouts, the CDE-172BT is a great sound system builder supporting mild upgrades like replacing damaged speakers or advanced upgrades like a full-blown sound system build.
The CDE-172BT offers Android AOA (Android Open Accessory) 2.0 when used with a compatible Android™ smartphone through the USB connection. The AOA connection provides better music and sound control compared to basic Bluetooth® audio streaming.
BLUETOOTH HANDS-FREE CALLING
Keep it safe on the road with your hands on the wheel. The CDE-172BT is equipped with Bluetooth wireless technology so you can carry on your phone conversations without additional adapters or headpieces.
This unit comes with all that’s needed for Bluetooth convenience. The CDE-172BT comes with a tuned microphone that’s engineered to reduce noise interference and feedback. This allows optimal placement in your car, for the best possible sound quality.
MAKING, TAKING CALLS & CALL WAITING
Making and taking phone calls has never been more convenient. You can set up your cell phone/head unit to automatically answer your calls. Use the supplied microphone to speak, and then listen through your car’s speakers. When a call comes in, your music mutes so you can hear the phone call. View caller information including Caller ID, Missed, Dialed, and Received calls right from the head unit display. This truly makes the transition from your phone calls to music enjoyable and convenient.
HANDS-FREE CALLING SOUND CUSTOMIZATION
To bring sound balance to your hands-free experience, you can adjust the CDE-172BT’s mic gain, phone output and ringtone volume. If that’s not enough, there are two sound quality settings to choose from to get the balance just right for you. This flexibility will make your phone calls a pleasurable experience.
