Alpine Electronics of America, Inc. announced that all of its new 2012 single DIN CD receivers are now shipping. Although some of the new receivers began shipping in February, the remaining models have now become available.

The receivers offer various connectivity options for popular digital audio sources. Three of the new models have built-in HD Radio™ receivers, allowing access to over 2,000 stations broadcasting with HD Radio Technology. Four models offer full Pandora® internet radio control, including thumbs-up, thumbs-down, track skip, bookmarking, and new station creation. Depending on the model, this full control is available via the Pandora app on an iPhone® connected via USB, or from Android™ or BlackBerry® smartphones using Bluetooth® wireless technology. When either HD Radio or Pandora is playing, song, artist and album name will scroll on the display.

Bluetooth wireless technology is included on four of the receivers. Features that enhance the hands-free calling experience include an Alpine-tuned sound maximizer for clearer incoming call sound quality, and a separate microphone that can be precisely mounted (such as on the visor) to optimize capturing the driver’s voice for improved out-going sound quality. Other features include secure simple pairing (SSP) to improve the pairing experience for newer smartphones; display of phone battery level, cellular signal level and received message icons; and call waiting support.
