CDA-9853R Write Up:
Alpine's CDA-9853R CD player features GlideTouch — take a close look at the bottom of the CDA-9853R's faceplate. That's right — no preset buttons. Instead, you'll find a simple, white, silicon rubber strip. That's the GlideTouch panel.
It works much like the touch pad on a laptop computer. To use it, you simply slide your finger over the strip until you've found the function you want (a sound guide helps you out). Then you press it — it actually feels like you're pressing a real button. GlideTouch looks cool and gives you ultra-convenient system control, all while allowing you to keep your eyes on the road.
And don't forget, this CDA-9853R CD player is a great performer, too. Alpine CDA-9853R features plenty of power (18 watts x 4 channels RMS) for robust playback, along with comprehensive Bass Engine Pro sound controls. MediaXpander restores depth and fullness to your music, especially your digital music files. With iPersonalize, you can even adjust your system settings online at Alpine's website, burn it onto CD-R, and use that disc to set up your system automatically.
Speaking of digital music, the CDA-9853R will play your standard CDs, plus all the MP3s and WMAs you've burned on disc.
If you're into the iPod scene, the CDA-9853R has you covered. It's compatible with Alpine's KCA-420i iPod interface, which conveniently lets you access all your iPod's functions with the Alpine receiver's controls. And if more power is a must, don't hesitate to add amplifiers to the three sets of preamp outputs. If you connect Alpine V12 amps, you can control them right from the CDA-9853R.

In fact, all of this year’s Ai-NET head units are Ready for iPod and will show the iPod as a source on the panel display.
Call up and control your iPod from the head unit by sliding and touching the GlideTouch bar.

This exclusive feature uses digital processing to restore lost harmonic content and enhance all your music sources—especially compressed media—providing a richer, more “live” sound.
Bass Engine delivers advanced yet easy-to-use digital sound processing controls that help you get the most out of your system and make the overall sound tighter, louder (yet cleaner), and more powerful.
Turn it up and play it loud
Now you can hear your iPod tunes the way they were meant to be heard—loud, clear and with full fidelity. You’ll have extra amp, speaker and subwoofer power for your iPod—with maximum dynamic range and powerful bass. Moreover, Alpine head units with MediaXpander can restore lost detail in your compressed files, bringing the music back to life.
Stay in complete control
Alpine not only lets you bring your iPod into your vehicle, it seamlessly makes it an integral part of your car audio system.
You can quickly search and listen to your iPod files directly from your Alpine unit, and even use a remote control. Convenient Quick Search keys allow you to navigate through your collection by playlist, artist or album and find the music you want to listen to—fast and easy.
Plug it in and charge it up
Connection is simple because no power wires are needed. Just plug your iPod into the adapter and it charges as you drive. Put the KCA-420i into any unobtrusive, convenient location—under the dash, in the trunk or beneath the seat.
Simply connect the KCA-420i to this head unit and you’re ready to plug in your iPod and enjoy all your favourite playlists for non-stop music. In addition, control of iPod functions via the GlideTouch bar makes operation easier while you drive.
