Summary: I have had this unit for a few years and really like it. I would have given it 5 stars if it had an auxiliary jack. The connection to the ipod works great as I can control everything from the unit and leave my ipod locked in the glove compartment.
Summary: This Alpine stereo is user friendly, and produces great sound for anyone who loves to listen to music while driving. I have owned Alpines for many years, beginning when my 1979 Saab 900 had the original equipment stolen, and in all the cars up to and including my current Corolla Sport.
Nicest looking, most user friendly single DIN head unit I've ever used.

Summary: When I went to a higher end radio store, I looked through some different brands and I couldn't stand using Pioneer head units among others. I found the CDA-105 and decided it was my favorite not only for its looks, but user-friendly functionality.
Summary: great sound, looks, and preformance. Paired with eight alpine speakers, including two type r 10 inch subs and a 760 watt amp this system rocks my 2003 reg. cab silverado.. Love the I_pod option...and R.I.P Steve Jobs.
Summary: I had my old Pioneer unit stolen, so I bought this after my friends who are avid Alpine fans recommended this. The stats for this basically would replace my old unit. The only reason why I went with this is the fact that I wanted the USB port to be in the back so I can route it to the glove...
Summary: This stereo is just ok, can't understand what everybody likes so much about it. PRO: - Nice button arrangement, ergonomic playback control - Nice big song name display CON: - Plays only the first 100 MP3 songs in a folder. YES REALLY!!! NO FRIGGIN WAY TO PLAY ANY SONG COMING AFTER THE 100TH SONG.
Summary: Good stereo overall. But a few problems... The first unit I received had a defective CD player, so I had to return it and order a new one. I was not able/allowed to simply exchange it - no big deal though.
