Product information

Enjoy iPod and iPhone in Your Car

Use your iPod in your car via USB connection and get convenient control and clear sound through your Alpine system. Works with iPod and is Parrot Bluetooth Ready, too.

Plays Music From USB Sticks

The USB connection lets you directly play back music files from your USB sticks. Songs from USB memory are automatically put in alphabetical order.

24-bit DAC

Rather than using the iPod for D/A conversion, the Digital Media Receiver takes the digital signal from the iPod and converts it to analogue using its own 24-bit DAC for much higher signal quality.

Fast, Easy Operation

The Dual Action Encoder allows precise volume control and fast Page Scroll in Quick Search mode. When pushed in, it becomes a jog dial for single line scrolling through menus.

Improve Sound Quality with IMPRINT Sound

One of the major benefits of the IMPRINT Ready units is that they allow you to connect the PXA-H100 IMPRINT Sound Processor to greatly improve the sound in your vehicle.

Upgrade Your System



A great system addition that gives you hands-free operation of your Bluetooth-enabled mobile phone with full phonebook access and A2DP AV streaming and AVRCP Device Operation ready. Parrot software updates provide support for future phones.



This compact upgrade instantly boosts the power of your system. Easy to install, it fits neatly behind your head unit, so there’s no need for additional wiring or special installation.


Full Colour Display

The big, bright, beautiful colour display shows you at a glance all the important information from your iPod, and even displays the album cover art.
