How do Alpine head units compare?

    I'm going to be adding an Alpine N333RRS head unit to my Audi A3, replacing the Concert head unit and Dension iPod adapter...

    As it happens I quite like the sound of the Concert, but wondered how the Alpine units generally sound... anyone fitted an Alpine head unit to the standard speakers in their A3? Anyone using the KCA 420i iPod adapter?

    Any comments about the likely sound quality would be good...

    Chalk & cheese in terms of quality but you won't get decent sound from the A3 speakers no matter what you fit. You should really consider adding a sub at the same time (& ideally new front speakers) otherwise you are seriously limiting the capabilities of a decent head unit

    You won't get much better than a Alpine Head unit IMO.. Dogs Danglies so to say /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    But as Andymac say's you'll have to upgrade the speakers to get the real benefits from it and ideally adding an amp.....

    OK - thanks for that... I can see that I have a way to go and will have a look at amps and speakers and subs next!
