I think Randy owns that one...

either that or the 7995 or 7998

Miguel 12-29-2003 05:35 AM

My bad, he's got the 7998.

Great deck none the less....

...but nothing touches that Alpine F1 deck you posted.

$4800.00... holy price BATMAN! What's so special about that deck? It doesn't even play MP3 or have a motorized face. Must be that "Optical Digital Output". I thought I got their top-of-the-line deck assuming any non-MP3 would be less.... guess not.

I think Bimmersport (Charlie) has the Alpine 7990 ..

I just bought an Alpine 7893 for $200 bucks ! In mint condition ! came with box and manual.

Charlie has the same one I just got... CDA-7998.

Wat so good about alpine decks. Never own one b4. why is alpine decks soo expensive? Is a brand name lke Nike wat about thier sound quality??

Zimmie... i hear ya man.

I used to swear by Kenwood Excelon line up... I even had the bad-ass KDC-815 deck in my E30 and thought it was the shizzle. I went ahead and bought this cheap (bottom of the line) Alpine CDA-9807 for my winter beater and DUDE! The sound quality is incredible. I can't stree enough how much of a difference the deck made from a mid-range Kenwood to a bottom-line Alpine within a 5min install. I did some more poking around and learned that any serious audiophile that competes in IASCA & EMMA seem to all use Alpine head units.

nice deck... but I cant really see it working well with a BMW interior.

same goes for ROB's 7893, great deck, but not for my car.
If I was going for clarity, I'd rock a nakamichi headunit over an Alpine, but you can't beat Alpines features + quality on a dollar to dollar basis.
