Alpine CDE-136BT

It's the most expensive system on test, but as with the Pioneer, we think the Alpine is worth paying for.

Overall Auto Express Rating

4.0 out of 5

It's the most expensive system on test, but as with the Pioneer, we think the Alpine is worth paying for. It adds Bluetooth to a strong features list, with six presets, front and rear USBs, an auxiliary input and a CD player. Plus, it provided clear sound quality. Its menus are as simple to use as the Pioneer’s, too, although the screen doesn’t present you with as much information as its rival’s does.
