Built-In HD Radio®

HD Radio

Get all the music and programming you want to hear in a crystal-clear digital format. FM stations with CD-quality sound and AM stations with FM-quality sound, with virtually no distortion. Extend your music choice further with multi-casting capability HD1, HD2, and HD3 and you'll hear more talk and more music content from the stations you already receive.

Smart Reception Management: A Better Way to Listen to HD Radio

Traditional HD Radio equipped tuners will use an auto-switching method when listening to the main & multi-casting channels. It works really well on the main channels, however when listening to a sub-channel, you will be switched back to the main channel if the digital signal is temporarily lost. This interruption can be a frustrating experience to stay engaged on a particular multi-casting channel if the digital signal is weak. Alpine’s solution provides Smart Reception Control through the default setting “Digital MC”. The Digital MC setting uses a Hybrid method of auto-switching analog and digital on the main channel, and uses all-digital for sub-channels. Alpine’s solution keeps you on the channel you desire, resulting in a better overall HD Radio experience.

iTunes Tagging—Get New Songs on the Go

The CDE-134HD is enabled for iTunes Tagging and when you hear a song you like, simply press the on-screen [Tag] button that is displayed below the song information. This iTunes Tagging feature lets you Tag songs you hear on HD Radio stations and stores the song info on your iPod. The next time you connect your iPod to iTunes, you will be able to preview your tagged songs and purchase and download them from directly from iTunes.

Note: Third party services may not be available in all areas; please contact an authorized retailer for coverage in your area.

Simple Plug-in with Front USB Port and Front Aux Input

USB

With a dedicated USB input and USB cable, you can even connect USB memory devices like thumbdrives. Song lists on USB devices are displayed in alphabetical order, and allows eight levels of file / folder search capabilities. This unit will find music files while ignoring other file types on the USB device.

Note: MP3 device or cell phone can only be independently controlled through the head unit when using the USB connection, not with the AUX connection.

Built-in Equalizer

Select from 10 different EQ modes to get the best sound from all your sources. (Flat/Pops/Rock/News/Jazz/Elec Dance/Hip Hop/Easy Lis/Country/Classical). If the Equalizer presets aren’t enough for your listening taste, there’s a 3-Band Parametric Equalizer you can adjust and save as a user preset for a better sound response curve. The setting – Bass, Mid and Treble- can be adjusted in the 3-Band Parametric mode.

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, so you get the best sound out of your factory or upgraded system. Of course for a true power upgrade just add-on the KTP-445 Power Pack to instantly increase your head unit’s power to a true 45Wx4 RMS, now we-re talking about some serious sound!

Built for Sound System Building

The CDE-134HD comes equipped with 1 pair of RCA pre-amp outputs – ideal to add a subwoofer and amplifier for that extra kick to the system.

Plug in an iPod® or iPhone®

Made for iPod / Works with iPhone

The CDE-134HD is more than just a CD player, it is designed to work with your iPod or iPhone - so you can enjoy all your favorites wherever the road takes you.

Connect your iPod or iPhone using the USB cable that came with your iPod or iPhone and you've got access to all your music, right from your head unit. Adding the optional heavy-duty, automotive-grade Alpine KCU-445i USB iPod/iPhone cable is an even better option. This cable can stand up to the rigors of in-car use unlike the cable supplied with your iPod or iPhone used primarily for charging. With USB you get convenient control so you can scroll through all your Playlists, Artists, Albums, and Songs - and view all your song information right from the head unit display. Enjoy all your music whether from your iPod or iPhone, Alpine brings the music to your car.

Note: MP3 device or cell phone can only be independently controlled through the head unit when using the USB connection, not with the AUX connection.
