I sell & install Alpine They are great in my book. The 9843 is a mp3/cd with 1 rca there is the prob. with that radio if you ever plan to have a system with muti amps then you need more rca's..The radio has blue chiklets and quick search witch works gerat with mp3's great choice. I like the 9847 a little more money but you can do a complete system with it.. 9847 mp3/wma/cd, 3 rca's, black face Remote ready,Quad illumination,Sat ready for sirrius or xm. check out there web site for more details.. http://www.alpine-usa.com/
You got a great price(9843) map is 149.00 :clap
Hope this helps..

I actually had the 9843, but ended up returning it and spending the extra 50 bucks and getting the 9847, has 3 rca outputs one specifically for the sub not just one rear/sub that is switchable also if I remember right it was 50Wx4 instead of 45wx5 like the 9843 was. Has a 4 color changable display that is nice, can change it pretty easily to match the interior/lighting of your car, goes green/red/blue/amber. Overall it is awesome and I haven't had a problem with it. It is also compatible with sirius and xm, so if your going satelite radio this one will handle whichever. It is definately worth the extra $50. I work at Best Buy and this unit was so nice I bought it before we even got discounts on Alpine when it first came in. Best one we sell besides the one that's like $100 more (about $300) and has a motorized removable face and a remote

its a good unit

i have the 9843. i got it because i wanted to play mp3s. Its a good deck, and i've had no problems with it. I agree that the next one up the line would be better if you are considering expanding your system. I might move up to it eventually.

with the mp3s, it takes a sec or two to load songs, which is fine when you listen to a regular cd, but is somewhat annoying when listening to a mix cd. Anyway, its worth the tradeoff for being able to have like 10 albums on one disc.

enjoy your new deck!
