    Agreed - not worth fixing when you can pick up a aftermarket unit cheap. Shop around - you can get a much better unit - might even look into upgrading your speakers too.

    I agree with everyone else.

    Technology has greatly improved since (2002), fine tuning, bluetooth, aux inputs, iPod hook-ups, etc.

    Ditch it and dont look back.

    I feel the opposite. Every Alpine I have had lasts 4 years and then quits.

    there all made in china or have parts from china in them so nothing last. If you get one that gives you years of service then you got lucky. the quality of most is bad from 10 15 years ago that I don't buy anything that has just come out. I wait untill there near ready to discontinue and buy it as cheap as I can.

    I still have one of the first detachable faceplate pioneer cd players that came out. Over 15 years old and it still works.
