TORRANCE, CA – Alpine Electronics introduced three new single-DIN head units at CES designed to deliver great sound in the car at a low, budget-friendly price. These entry-level head units address the demand for budget-friendly products that playback music from popular storage formats.
The new models are the CDE-143BT Advanced Bluetooth CD Receiver ($129.95), the CDE-141 CD Receiver ($99.95) and the UTE-42BT Advanced Bluetooth Digital Media Receiver ($99.95).
“Consumers no longer have to sacrifice access to various music formats for price,” said Steve Crawford, vice president and general manager, aftermarket business unit, Alpine Electronics of America, Inc. “These new entry head units deliver multiple methods for music delivery with budget friendly prices.”
All three head units have a USB port and aux jack on the faceplate for easy connection to music stored on phones or memory devices. They also have Alpine’s App Mode feature that allows for basic control of iPhone apps through the Alpine head unit.
In addition to these features, the CDE-143BT and UTE-42BT have advanced BT Plus Bluetooth wireless technology with audio streaming. Users can play music stored on a smartphone and benefit from Alpine’s exclusive Digital Sound Processing (DSP) expansion which improves the sound quality of streaming audio. Both models come with a separate microphone that can be mounted for the driver’s convenience (such as on the visor), for improved sound quality during phone calls.
