A unique high-end design that suits a multitude of installation applications

Perfect for stealth, vintage or exotic vehicle applications the stunning 2.4-inch TFT display controller has a slim profile which can be mounted virtually anywhere and for bespoke installations the included flush mount bezel can be utilised. The black box can be installed into a 1-DIN space or hidden away in a glove-box compartment or other discrete location such as under a seat or dashboard within a distance limited to the 2.5mtrs controller display cable length.

CD Standard Sampling Rate

CD standard provides excellent  sound quality with a sample rate 16Bit/44.1kHz and a frequency range typically 20Hz~20kHz. 

Hi-Res Sample Rate (192kHz/24Bit)

Hi-Res Audio has remarkable high definition with sample rates up to 24Bit/192kHz and an extended frequency range 20Hz~40kHz.

Hi-Res Audio sound quality exceeding CD, a realistic and high-definition sound experience faithful to the original studio recording

The Hi-Res Audio certification is the industry benchmark for which has been standardised through JAS (Japan Audio Society). In summary, it is the collaboration of digital processes and formats that allow the encoding and playback of high-definition music files which require higher sampling rates and wider frequency dynamic range compared to what is found on typical CDs.

Hi-Res Audio encompasses the playback of high-resolution music such as FLAC, WAV or APE files that contain high sampling rates of 24Bit/192kHz (above the CD standard 16Bit/44.1kHz). These audio files can be reproduced with high fidelity sound via the UTX-A09 PRO and companioned with Hi-Res Audio certified speakers and amplifiers.

Listening to Hi-Res Audio allows you to feel every emotion and immerse in the realistic nuances and fine details of your favourite artist’s original studio performance which is reproduced in high-definition sound. Furthermore, Hi-Res Audio has absolutely no distortion and incredible dynamics for an authentic and exhilarating audiophile listening experience.

Moreover, the rotary encoder makes volume adjustment, selecting menus and sources, as well as browsing through music your and phone book intuitive and fast. The vibrant 2.4-inch display delivers a rich user interface experience displaying Hi-Res Audio info, album artwork, artist and song titles. Selecting between preset EQ and MediaXpander HD modes is a breeze and on-the-go sound adjustments is easy and effective too.

All parts included for an OEM add-on system or bespoke custom installation

The UTX-A09 PRO gives you virtually limitless installation flexibility when compared to a typical 1-DIN head unit. The slim profile 2.4-inch TFT display controller is separate from the black box which can be fitted up to 2.5mtrs away. Furthermore, the display controller flush mount housing allows for the  bespoke fitment into a flat surface.


Hi-Res Audio solution for premium vehicles equipped with factory navigation

Vehicles equipped with a factory navigation system and integrated vehicle controls often cannot be changed. The UTX-A09 PRO keeps your OEM system intact by allowing it to be added to or integrated with the OEM system for pure high-end sound and additional functions such as Bluetooth (4.0) for music streaming and hands free phone with compatibility of newer smartphones. Plus, the auxiliary input with ‘nav mix’ lets you hear voice guidance from the factory navigation system.

High-end connections provide the foundation for the ultimate Hi-Res Audio system

Digital Time Correction
This unit is able to delay the audio signal to the speakers closest to the listener. This effectively creates a perception of increased distance for those speakers. The listener can be placed at an equal distance between the left and right speakers for optimum staging.

Made for iPhone
It’s simply the best way to control your iPhone in the car – enjoy seamless operation of your iPhone in addition to full control of all your favourite media sources. Control all search options of your iPhone directly from the receiver, via Artist, Playlist, Album, Song, Genre, Podcast, or Composer and more.

24 bit D/A converter
To ensure only the best sound quality, premium Alpine head units use high-resolution Burr Brown 24-Bit Digital-to-Analogue conversion. The 24-Bit DAC decodes the digital signal into amazing sound reproduction, allowing for an incredible Signal to Noise ratio of 105dB

3 Preouts
The three sets of RCA PreOut lets you build a full-fledged sound system to add multiple amplifiers, speakers and subwoofers for a truly remarkable premium sound system. The subwoofer control allows you to adjust the bass level intensity to exactly how you like it.

4V Preouts
Alpine’s 4V Pre-Out stage ensures ultra clean signal transmission from the head unit to amplifiers. When gain matched to amplifiers, the high level 4Volt RCA output virtually eliminates noise and distortion, even at high volume levels.

9-Band Parametric EQ
Parametric Equalisers are multi-band variable equalisers which allow users to control the three primary parameters: amplitude, centre frequency and bandwidth.

Android Compatible
Media and app control from Android smartphones is supported through this device, making it a great unit for smartphone users.

Bass Engine SQ
The BASS button takes you directly to Alpine’s advanced bass level adjustment function. As you choose one of the five levels, it automatically adjusts frequency cutoff, Q factor and subwoofer level for optimum sound quality. Choose from Standard, Punch, Rich, Mid Bass or Low Bass.

Drivers can keep their phone in their pocket and keep their hands on the wheel while receiving calls and getting a clear view of the caller ID, phone book and other information on the display. A convenient and safe way to use mobile phones while driving.

High Pass (HP) Crossover for better sound. The high pass crossover cuts bass frequencies sent to the speaker outputs and the full-range pre-outs. Suited for subwoofer systems, the HP filter enables speakers to perform more efficiently within their reproduction range and limits bass response cancellation.

FLAC High Resolution Music Playback
FLAC (Free Lossless Audio Codec) is a lossless compression format. Digital audio compressed by FLAC's algorithm can typically be reduced to 50-60% of its original size and decompressed to an identical copy of the original audio data without any data loss, allowing for superior sound quality.

Front USB Connection
The Front USB connection provides playback of MP3/WMA/AAC music files stored on a USB memory devices.Folders and songs from USB memory are automatically put in alphabetical order.
