  • ・CD player with an iPodR interface: CDA-9855Ji

Alpine's new CDA-9855Ji, an innovative head unit combining an advanced CD player with an iPodR interface, was selected for the "Car Accessory Awards 2005" by Nikkan Daily Automotive News (Jidosha Shinbun).

Every year this respected publication selects automotive-related accessories that demonstrate excellence in both concept and design for this award, also taking into consideration the results of questionnaires submitted by car accessory shops and dealers.

The CDA-9855Ji gained exceptionally high evaluation due to its position as a car audio product that responded to the latest iPodR trends and also because of its reasonable price-gaining the award despite competition from other non-audio car accessories, including tires and wheel covers.
