Alpine iLX-007 Availability Update; Priced Well Below Suggested Retail Price

If you're looking to upgrade your car's sound system with a CarPlay-capable head unit, you have a few options. You could choose from one of Pioneer's six head units (5 NEX and AppRadio 4) or get the newly announced Alpine iLX-007.

Alpine's receiver has a few good features like a larger 7-inch capacitive touchscreen compared to the Pioneer AppRadio 4 (6.2-inch) and smaller chassis (3-inches in depth). Alpine also boasts their own MediaXpander (MX) technology in the head unit which reproduces and restores sound quality lost during media compression.

The device has a suggested retail price of $800 and Alpine says it's already shipping to authorized dealers. Most retailers that list the item have it priced at $600. We looked for the head unit for purchase from various online retailers, and in trying to find the lowest price this is what we've found so far...
