Alpine Now Shipping High-Resolution 2-DIN Multimedia Receiver

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (May. 4, 2022) – Alps Alpine North America, Inc. (“Alpine”), is now shipping the iLX-507, a High-Resolution 2-DIN 7-inch Multimedia Receiver.

New Benchmark for Dash Performance

For those looking to upgrade their factory system with the latest in-vehicle technology but maintain a factory look on their dash, the iLX-507 features a standard 2-DIN chassis and fitment with a 7-inch WXGA High-Resolution Display (1280x720px) that fits into most dash openings.

The iLX-507 features High-Resolution Audio Playback (96kHz/24Bit) via a wired USB connection to a smartphone or wirelessly through Bluetooth® connection so music can be streamed from popular Hi-Res platforms like Apple Music, Tidal, Amazon Music HD, and more. The iLX-507 also has a USB input so Hi-Res music files can be played directly from a USB drive.

Features like Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™, and built-in Bluetooth® hands-free calling with audio streaming allows access to music, messages, phone calls, and maps on a smartphone via a wired USB connection or wirelessly. These features are controlled through touch or voice commands with the included external microphone. The receiver is SiriusXM-Ready® (SXV-300G2 2018-Up Connect Vehicle Tuner Kit sold separately; SiriusXM subscription required) and includes built-in HD Radio® for additional entertainment options.  

Exciting System Expandability Options  

The iLX-507 includes two camera inputs to add a front, side, or rear camera (sold separately). The rearview camera input includes a distance guide display that overlays guidelines onto the screen for ease when moving in reverse. 

When used with the DVR-C320R Premium 1080P Front and Rear Dash Camera with built-in drive assist (sold separately), the iLX-507 can display real-time and recorded drives in high-definition and provide audible drive assist alerts like front collision, lane departure, and front car movement through the vehicle’s speakers.

On-board tuning features bring out the full potential of music playback with a 13-band parametric EQ per channel, for continuous frequency control. The 6-channel time correction ensures that music is staged properly in the front and center of the vehicle. Additional amplifiers can be added using the three sets of true 4V preamp outputs with front, rear, and subwoofer control if more power is needed.  

The iLX-507 is compatible with the new RUX-H02 Alpine Halo Bass and Volume Controller (sold separately). The controller easily mounts to the dash and allows quick-access controls to the subwoofer and main volume through a wireless Bluetooth® connection.

The iLX-507 is a Digital Media Receiver (no CD/DVD player). However, an HDMI input and output are included to connect a DVD player or even a smartphone for an all-digital audio and video connection through a single cable.   

Convenient System Compatibility  

Upgrading dash technology can often result in a loss of factory functionality such as steering wheel controls and access to engine codes. However, iLX-507 is compatible with the iDatalink® Maestro Module (sold separately) allowing select OEM features to be retained and vehicle information displayed on the screen.  

The iLX-507 is now shipping at a MAP of $749.95 and is available at Alpine Authorized retailers and at Preferred Online Stores. Authorized Installation Centers can be found on the Alpine-USA website through the store locator.
