Are Alpine decks and speakers any good? Im looking to get a deck that hooks up to my ipod and can control my ipod through the deck, and some new speakers in the front.

I have never heard anything bad about alpine. Top of the line products.

I have an Alpine CDE-102 head unit, and Im in love with it. It was a little more one the pricy side, but it works great and makes my little Infinity 5x7's bump. Im picking up some JL 6x9 this week, and I am thinking the Alpine will really shine with those.

Love my Alpine, minus the bluetooth not being compatible with many phones, but that may have changed since I last checked. I run an iDA-X100. No CD player, but I got it for the iPod interface.

Alpine makes good stuff. So do other companies, too.

I got a CDA-106 I think, but its got bluetooth and Ipod connections, plus it looks cool and sounds better.
I got it from http://www.crutchfield.com/
