Alpine CDE-172BT Advanced Bluetooth® CD Receiver
Whether your music is on CDs, streamed from your phone or digital player with Pandora, or stored on a USB drive, the CDE-172BT can deliver the music you crave while on the road.
PRESS PLAY AND LET ALPINE DO THE REST
With advanced Bluetooth® wireless technology, audio streaming, and FLAC support, the CDE-172BT CD receiver delivers quality phone calls and playback of various music files, so you stay in touch and tune.
HIGH-CONTRAST LCD DISPLAY AND EASY MUSIC CONTROL
This one-stop music player has an LCD with one-line, RGB illumination for your choice of display colour. The new high-contrast LCD has five times the contrast of a conventional screen, so the display is always easy to read.
Alpine's signature rotary knob makes controlling all your music a breeze. This unit also comes with a convenient front-panel auxiliary input so you or your passenger can plug in a portable media player as an additional source.
BEST SOUND QUALITY
For unrivalled sound quality, expect nothing less than the best. The CDE-172BT uses a 24-Bit DAC for ultimate sound quality with all your digital media sources. The 3-band parametric EQ lets you dial in your bass, mids, and treble, while the high pass/low pass crossover allows you to protect and manage the right frequencies for your speakers. The CDE-172BT can playback FLAC (Free Lossless Audio Codec) files via USB for a more quality listening experience. With three 4V preouts, the CDE-172BT is a great sound system builder supporting mild upgrades like replacing damaged speakers or advanced updates like a full-blown sound system build.
The CDE-172BT offers Android AOA (Android Open Accessory) 2.0 when used with a compatible Android™ smartphone through the USB connection. The AOA connection provides better music and sound control compared to basic Bluetooth® audio streaming.
BLUETOOTH HANDS-FREE CALLING
Keep it safe on the road with your hands on the wheel. The CDE-172BT is equipped with Bluetooth wireless technology so you can carry on your phone conversations without additional adapters or headpieces.
This unit comes with all that's needed for Bluetooth convenience. The CDE-172BT comes with a tuned microphone that's engineered to reduce noise interference and feedback. This allows optimal placement in your car for the best possible sound quality.
MAKING, TAKING CALLS & CALL WAITING
Making and taking phone calls has never been more convenient. You can set up your cell phone/head unit to automatically answer your calls. Use the supplied microphone to speak and then listen through your car's speakers. When a call comes in, your music mutes so you can hear the phone call. View caller information including Caller ID, Missed, Dialed, and Received calls right from the head unit display. This truly makes the transition from your phone calls to music enjoyable and convenient.
HANDS-FREE CALLING SOUND CUSTOMIZATION
To bring sound balance to your hands-free experience, you can adjust the CDE-172BT's mic gain, phone output and ringtone volume. If that's not enough, there are two sound quality settings to choose from to get the balance just right for you. This flexibility will make your phone calls a pleasurable experience.
AUDIO STREAMING HAS NEVER BEEN EASIER
Do you have a vast music library on your Bluetooth-enabled smartphone? The CDE-172BT can stream and control your smartphone's music via Bluetooth wireless technology. Want to listen to music from your iPhone without plugging-in? Stream your music via the Bluetooth connection. Whether you have music on your iPhone locally, on iTunes Match, or select third-party audio apps, the CDE-172BT can stream your tunes. If you have an Android smartphone, the CDE-172BT is compatible with Android AOA (Android Open Accessory) 2.0. Use the USB connection to access AOA for better sound and control over basic Bluetooth® audio streaming. These functions are delivered through the faceplate keys.
STEERING WHEEL CONTROL
If your car has factory Bluetooth steering wheel controls, then it will also control your CDE-172BT's built-in Bluetooth functions. Or, control the CDE-172BT from your factory-installed steering wheel controls by adding a third-party adapter. Use an adapter from popular brand names such as Axxess or PAC to add this feature. The CDE-172BT is also compatible with the RUE-4202 Wireless Remote Control (sold separately).
MADE FOR IPOD® AND IPHONE®
It's convenient to control your iPod or iPhone music in the car. The USB connection allows for high-quality iPod playback.
For even more listening choices, the CDE-172BT is SiriusXM-Ready™ (requires SiriusXM Connect Vehicle Tuner Kit and SiriusXM subscription, both sold separately). Enjoy over 140 channels of commercial-free music, sports, talk, comedy, news, and more from coast-to-coast. The CDE-172BT has three preset bands for Satellite Radio, allowing you to assign up to 18 SiriusXM channels to the faceplate keys.
The CDE-172BT can display song name, artist name, and radio station name if the radio station broadcasts this data.
CHARGE YOUR PHONE
Standard in-vehicle solutions may drain the battery of your phone, but with the CDE-172BT, your phone charges via the USB cable (sold separately) so you can enjoy continuous music and power your phone at the same time.
WORKS WITH PANDORA® INTERNET RADIO FOR IPHONE® AND ANDROID™
Whether you have an iPhone or Android smartphone, Alpine gives you full control of Pandora straight from your dash. Whether you connect through the USB port or stream wirelessly, you can enjoy your favourite Pandora channels with Thumbs Up/Thumbs Down buttons directly on the faceplate and QuickSearch features. Alpine's DSP-Sound Expansion circuitry ensures the best possible sound from the Pandora connection. Note: Third-party services may not be available in all areas; please contact an authorized retailer for coverage in your area.
GET A BOOST IN GREAT SOUND
With Alpine, expect the premium sound your ears deserve. This head unit allows you to customize your crossover adjustments so you can control where you send high and low frequencies, for the best sound from your CDE-172BT. For a real power upgrade, add-on the KTP-445A Power Pack to instantly increase your head unit's power from 18W x 4 RMS to a true 45W x4 RMS (based on CEA-2006 power ratings).
Please note: Due to COVID 19, transit times may take longer than expected. These delays are due to volume and safety precautions taken by the Carriers to reduce the risk of exposure.
