Alpine puts great sound first, and the CDE-164BT CD receiver builds on that stellar tradition with innovative technology. Once you download Alpine’s updated TuneIt 2.5 smartphone app to your iPhone® or Android™ smartphone, you can use the receiver’s extensive sound adjustment capabilities to improve the acoustics in your car. You’ll take command with a touchscreen interface that lets you adjust settings yourself, or you can apply settings created by Alpine for your specific vehicle. You can even share your settings with other users through Facebook, and check out settings others have created for your vehicle.
The CDE-164BT goes a step beyond the Bluetooth features you’ll find on many other CD receivers. You can talk to Siri when your compatible iPhone is linked to the receiver, so you can keep your eyes on the road while you interact with your iPhone. If you’ve been less than thrilled with the sound of streaming audio in the past, Alpine’s exclusive processing improves the sound of streaming music or stored music files sent from your device to the receiver.
More cool options
If you’re looking to add some punch to your tunes, press the Bass Engine SQ button for easy access to the receiver’s extensive low-frequency controls, including bass profiles that you can customize through the TuneIt app. If you’re active on Facebook, this receiver will read the latest posts to you while you concentrate on the road. And if you’re tired of having that great FM station fade away, you can add an optional SiriusXM satellite radio tuner to enjoy an unparalleled variety of music, news, sports, and talk programming that follows you wherever you drive.
Want to keep your steering wheel controls?
In most cars, you’ll need an adapter to retain those controls with this car stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and radio, and you’ll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. You’ll see the adapters that work with your vehicle when you add this receiver to your cart.
