The Alpine CDE-103BT is a mid-range single-DIN car audio receiver. Although some more expensive Alpine head units require separate adapters for Bluetooth support, the technology is built into the CDE-103BT, enabling hands-free calling – a microphone is also included. However, a separately purchased cable is required for controlling an iPod or iPhone from within the receiver interface. QuickSearch and Percentage Search functions aim to make it easier to navigate large iPod libraries via the head unit. In addition to the iPod/iPhone input and standard CD player, the CDE-103BT features USB and AUX connectivity, and supports MP3, WMA, and AAC playback. Support for HD or satellite radio is not offered. The head unit outputs up to 50W per channel, or 18W RMS.
