Auxiliary input Adapter for Alpine Versatile-Link™ Ready radios.

What is an auxiliary input adapter?An auxiliary input adapter is a passive device that connects to the CD changer port on select Alpine Ai-Net head units and converts it to an audio input. Once installed the user is able to connect many audio devices to the Alpine radio for a clean audio connection and the ability to "tune" the add-on source with Bass Engine™ features. This AAi-ALPA offers audio performance that is more enjoyable than substandard FM-modulated solutions for connecting entertainment devices to the Alpine radio.

Frequent ask questions
1. My Alpine radio has a cd changer port on the back, will this part work?
A-- Yes, but only if the radio is V-LINK ready OR NON-VERSATILE LINK™ with a pink/black wire on harness.
2. I already have an Alpine CD changer connected, will i have to sacrifice the cd changer to use this cable?
A- YES, but PIE's ALP-AUX adapter will allow you to keep the CD Changer and provide an aux input.
3. I understand Alpine has two bus systems, Ai-NET and M-BUS, how do i identify an Ai-Net radio?
A- Look at the 3rd letter in the model number-- if it's an "A" (Ai-NET); or "M" (M-BUS ) for example: CDA-9811 (Ai-NET), CDM-7874 (M-BUS)
