Put Pandora® in your dash

Alpine's CDE-HD137BT CD receiver lets you put your Pandora stations right where you want them — in your dash. You can change stations, skip tracks, and rate songs just like you do online. Your smartphone and a free Pandora app are the key. Android® and BlackBerry® users get full control, including thumbs up and thumbs down ratings, through the Bluetooth® connection. iPhone® users connect through the USB input, and can utilize play and pause features through the receiver — full control is through the iPhone itself.

Alpine CDE-137BT

Bluetooth, evolved

Ever have that confusing conversation over Bluetooth where your caller keeps asking you to repeat what you're saying? Alpine gives you the tools you need need to end those annoying calls. First, you can mount the included microphone in a good spot in front of you so it'll have no problem picking up your voice. Next, the receiver lets you adjust the mic's gain to best match your speaking voice. You can also tweak the phone output and ring volume, so you won't go diving for the volume knob every time someone calls. And, last of all, this Alpine downloads up to a thousand names from your phonebook, and allows you to search by alphabet to find the number you want.

Stream music to your dash

If your phone or another device supports Bluetooth music streaming, you can beam your tunes and control playback with the CDE-HD137BT. You won't get full control this way, but you can perform some basic functions like track up and track down. Best of all, no wires are needed.

Built-in HD Radio™ and iTunes® tagging

Alpine's HD Radio tuner lets you tune in digital AM/FM broadcasts, significantly pumping up the sound quality. Participating FM stations sound about as good as a CD, while AM stations sound like traditional FM. If you've got subs in your system, you'll appreciate the bass HD Radio puts back in your favourite tunes. Plus while your iPod's connected and you've got an HD Radio station tuned in, you can "tag" songs you like for later purchase from the iTunes store.

Want to keep your steering wheel controls?

In most vehicles, you can use an adapter to connect your vehicle's steering wheel controls to this Alpine stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and the CDE-HD137BT, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. Check the "Accessories" tab for compatible adapters.

Alpine CDE-HD137BT the best March-23-13
Reviewer: Nick from Philadelphia

Reviewer: NickM from Huntington Beach,Ca  
Awesome sound, easy controls although they are small buttons. Probably bad for a person with large finger tips. Most of my AM stations are received in HD. Reasonable Equalizer controls. I can adjust any input to my hearing pleasure. Overall great product. I have been purchasing stereo equipment from Crutchfield for some time. Always great service.

Great Value, outstanding sound, Extremely pleased with the quality

Great head unit with lots of features March-12-13
Reviewer: Peterson from Tampa,FL.  
I purchased this unit for my wife. I was looking to add an iphone connection to her car, but there was limited options for this year Mercedes, and the cost would be around $300. I considered other options and found the Alpine 137. It had the iphone/ipod usb connection which charges the unit, an auxillary input and she can play mp3's from the cd player. Installation was relatively simple with the dash wiring kit and antenna adapter Crutchfield included. I was able to purchase a steering wheel interface to make the factory wheel controls operate some of the functions on the Alpine unit. This head unit has a remote input jack on the rear as well as a mic jack for the supplied microphone for the hands free calling. The dash wiring kit was already to plug into the pre-outs on the radio and work with the existing Bose system. The sound quality is great and the iphone paired up perfectly with the radio. She can now stream music or take calls via bluetooth. The phone is a 4s so all the Siri functions work by voice command through the bluetooth. The radio controls can't scroll the menus in the phone via bluetooth, but it can when connected to the usb. We could not be happier with the unit and the functions. The unit and the interfaces I bought still cost less than the ipod adapter kit I was originally looking at, plus we gained a lot more. I looked around and did not find much better pricing than Crutchfield, especially with the free wiring kit,antenna adapter and free shipping.
