Comments about Alpine CD/MP3/AAC/WMA Receiver:

While the customer service of Abt continues to be superb, I can only say the CDA-117 that replaced the CDA-9886 is a step backwards in functionality. I've read on other forums of the disappointing "banking" of mp3 files on usb drives containing more than 1000 songs. Also, the method by which files are read is different than the CDA-9886. It is more logical as it reads files in alphabetical order by folder, which the CDA-9886 previously read files by Changed date. Still, the banking feature itself is complete garbage and I would highly discourage this product if you use usb drives as your primary music source. It is unfortunate that the only other optional head unit with a Burr Brown processor is the IDA-X305S which only has 2v pre-outs. Alpine, get your act together! Your product features have no alignment whatsoever!
