wow thats ****ing sweet i'm still looking for a radio like that as it goes so nice with the E30 dash it is yust so great my brother had almost the same one in his e30 back in the day i think it was 92
how much did you pay if i could ask you !?
If you look on ebay there's a few 7909's for sale !
i can't believe people still listen to non-mp3 cds.
I am still looking for a record player for my car since there is nothing better than the sound of vinyl :-)
I might consider an eight track as well.
I love Alpine, but I'd take my newer CDA-9887 over that ancient thing any day.
I had one just like that. The only complaint was poor tuner reception. That seemed to be the problem with Alpine those days.
My deck isn't flashy at all... And on top of that it has Alpine's BlackOut feature which completely turns off all the lights after 5 sec of not touching the controls. This option is meant for sound quality enhancements more then aesthetics but is an awesome feature when driving at night.
i get your point! and thats a nice radio you have but i think the old alpine fits way better into a e30 it is a intrigated design what works so well for me :)
but you know everyone likes diff. stuff and thats good so
the second choise i would do would be a Becker traffic pro Radio with navigation they also fit verry well with the E30 intirior design and the Radio light is the same amber collour then the E30 :)
I guess I'm kinda like an E30... function > form :)
so the idea was thrown out after i think a 2 year production run.
and beleive me those vinyl players are highly sought after
Ma 2 cents
sorry for Hijackin' the thread
Are Cdr's the same as MP3 ? Is there a sound quality difference ?
My music is downloaded and burned at 320kb and the quality is same as original.
