Alpine XM universal controllers have arrived at retail stores. The device enables any car head unit to receive XM Satellite Radio when coupled with an Alpine XM tuner. The CRA-1667RF XM Radio/Changer Controller by Alpine Electronics allows the XM listener to change channels and to access information including the song title, artist and channel name. Alpine has built an FM modulator into the units that can connect to any stereo. Alpine has also installed outputs that directly connect to any stereo with an auxiliary input. The controller retails for approximately $80.
Consumers who purchase the CRA-1667RF for XM access will also need an Alpine TUA-T020XM tuner module, which costs approximately $280, and an antenna, which begins at around $49.
Stephen Witt, Alpine's vice president of Brand Marketing, said the controller allows consumers to add XM, MP3 playback and DVD without having to replace their entire system.
