Possibly one of the best looking CD players IMO. Sound quality matches the looks. The 9886 really makes subs sound deep and punchy.
The only con: its very bright at night, which the blackout function somewhat helps, even so it could use a dimmer. Alpine offers the IMprint add-on, but that money is better spent on a separate equalizer.
I've had mine since 2009, it is still 100% functional and still sounds great with daily usage since then. Great-sounding classic "volume knob" style head unit. I chose this one over all the rest and I am very picky about cosmetics as well as sound.

I've had this for about 4 years. I bought it from Best Buy when a friend of mine worked there. The hook up was easy and seamless operation from the deck's interface made it worth the money. After putting it in my Dakota and the transferring it to my new F-150 it still works great. I'm unfortunately selling my truck to go back to college and the F-150 didn't have a radio when I got it so I'll be parting ways with it.
For a budget system this is great, the only two problems I had with it were:
1- Scrolling through the iPod on the dock took forever, I had over 10,000 songs and when I sorted through artists it would take about 45 seconds to spin the knob to search for a song. 45 seconds doesn't sound like much but when you're driving it's a pain.
2- Pushing the volume past 19 would distort the sound, note: I did have 4-channel amp for the speakers and didn't use the factory amp, then I hooked it up into the factory amp to test it and it did the same thing.
All in all, If you're looking for a great functioning deck that's not too expensive, this one's for you.

|ive always liked alpine. there was no doubt what i was gonna replace my factory stereo with,in my 04 pontiac gto. its a very nice stereo,and it goes great with my alpine 6x9 3 way" speakers too. to be honest about it though,i just had it installed a week ago,and...its kinda crazy trying to figure the settings out. a little overwhelming. i pulled out the stereo's handbook and was diappointed. to find out what you really need to know,and how to program it, it also comes with a cd rom that has all the info. would of been much easier if they provided a pictorial dvd,or just put it all in the handbook. its a loaded stereo,but might take some time understanding your way into it.|
