The five advanced Bass Engine Pro functions, awesome look (and easy to use) new design make this a sure contender for head unit of the year. The degree of sound control it gives you is essentially equivalent to having an Alpine PRA-H400 signal processor built in. It will also play the MP3 tracks you've burned onto a CD-R or RW disc—all 12 hours worth! DHE processing enhances the MP3 sound to the digital quality you're used to. And with a 45W x 4 power amplifier, three Preamp Output’s and Versatile Link compatibility, the CDA-7878 will give you the power and control that a super-high performance system demands.
