Either connect a smartphone or mass storage device via a wired USB connection or USB input or connect wirelessly via Bluetooth® and LDAC connection. Hi-Res music can be accessed on popular Hi-Res streaming services like Apple Music, Tidal, Amazon Music HD, and more or purchased and downloaded from platforms like HDtracks.

Iconic Design

The HDS-990 features a commander unit with six chiclets that access various sound and music controls and a high-definition display that features song information. The unit can be conveniently mounted to the dash and used as a standalone music source or integrated with the factory or aftermarket head unit via the RCA or 4-Chanel High-Level Inputs to easily switch between digital music sources.

Infallible Listening Experience

When paired with the Hi-Res processing power of the HDP-D90 Digital Sound Processor Amplifier (DSP), you receive an infallible listening experience and the ability to build and tune your ideal sound system.

Flexible Installation

The HDS-990 includes a separate black box that can be installed behind the counsel, under the seat, or in another hidden area for flexible installation options. The black box features a wide range of feature suites for inputs and outputs that allow for convenient integration into any type of factory or aftermarket sound system.

Optimized For Full System

The Alpine Status System is sold separately and can be used to build a custom sound system. Three sets of true 4V preamp outputs are included to add additional amplifiers if more power is needed.
