With advanced Bluetooth® wireless technology, audio streaming, and FLAC support, the UTE-73BT mech-less digital receiver delivers quality phone calls and playback of various digital music files so you stay in touch and in tune.
High-Contrast LCD Display and Easy Music Control
This one-stop music player has an LCD display with one-line, RGB illumination for your choice of display color. The new high-contrast LCD display has five times the contrast of a conventional screen, so the display is always easy to read.
Alpine’s signature rotary knob makes controlling all your music a breeze. This unit also comes with a convenient front panel auxiliary input – so you or your passenger can plug in a portable media player as an additional source.
Best Sound Quality
For unrivaled sound quality, expect nothing less than the best. The UTE-73BT uses a 24-Bit DAC for ultimate sound quality with all your digital media sources. The 3-band parametric EQ and high pass/low pass crossover lets you do fine-tune your sound system. The UTE-73BT can playback FLAC (Free Lossless Audio Codec) files via USB, for a more accurate listening experience.
The UTE-73BT offers Android AOA (Android Open Accessory) 2.0 when used with a compatible Android™ smartphone through the USB connection. The AOA connection provides better music and sound control compared to basic Bluetooth® audio streaming.
Bluetooth Hands-Free Calling
Don’t get caught holding your phone while driving. The UTE-73BT is equipped with Bluetooth wireless technology so you can carry on your phone conversations without additional adapters or headpieces.
This unit comes with all that’s needed for Bluetooth convenience. The UTE-73BT comes with a tuned microphone that’s engineered to reduce noise interference and feedback. This allows optimal placement in your car, for the best possible sound quality.
Making, Taking Calls & Call Waiting
Making and taking phone calls has never been more convenient. You can set up your cell phone/head unit to automatically answer your calls. Use the supplied microphone to speak, and then listen through your car’s speakers. When a call comes in, your music mutes to carry the phone call. View caller information including Caller ID, Missed, Dialed, and Received calls right from the head unit display. This truly makes the transition from your phone calls to music enjoyable and convenient.
Hands-Free Calling Sound Customization
To bring sound balance to your hands-free experience, you can adjust the UTE-73BT’s mic gain, phone output and ringtone volume. If that’s not enough, there are two sound quality settings to choose from to get the balance just right for you. This flexibility will make your phone calls a pleasurable experience.
Audio Streaming has Never Been Easier
Do you have a large music library on your Bluetooth-enabled smartphone? The UTE-73BT can stream and control your smartphone’s music via Bluetooth wireless technology. Want to listen to music from your iPhone without plugging-in? Stream your music via the Bluetooth connection. Whether you have music on your iPhone locally, on iTunes Match, or select third-party audio apps, the UTE-73BT can stream your tunes. If you have an Android smartphone, the UTE-73BT is compatible with Android AOA (Android Open Accessory) 2.0. Use the USB connection to access AOA for better sound and control over basic Bluetooth® audio streaming. These functions are delivered through the faceplate keys.
Steering Wheel Control
If your car has factory Bluetooth steering wheel controls, then it will also control your UTE-73BT’s built-in Bluetooth functions. Or, control the UTE-73BT from your factory-installed steering wheel controls by adding a third-party adapter. Use an adapter from popular brand names such as Axxess or PAC to add this feature. The UTE-73BT is also compatible with the RUE-4204 Wireless Remote Control (sold separately).
Made for iPod and iPhone
It’s convenient to control your iPod or iPhone music in the car (requires the KCU-445i, sold separately). The USB connection allows for high-quality iPod or iPhone music playback so you can enjoy your music library while on the road.
The UTE-73BT can display song name, artist name, and radio station name if this data is broadcasted by the radio station.
Charge Your Phone
Standard in-vehicle solutions may drain the battery of your phone but with the UTE-73BT, your phone charges via the USB cable (sold separately) so you can enjoy music and power your phone at the same time.
Works with Pandora Internet Radio for iPhone and Android
Whether you have an iPhone or Android smartphone, Alpine gives you full control of Pandora straight from your dash. Whether you connect through the USB port or stream wirelessly, you can enjoy your favorite Pandora channels with Thumbs Up/Thumbs Down buttons directly on the faceplate, along with QuickSearch features. Alpine’s DSP-Sound Expansion circuitry ensures the best possible sound from the Pandora connection.
Get a Boost in Great Sound
With Alpine, expect the premium sound your ears deserve. This head unit allows you to customize your crossover adjustments so you can control where you send high and low frequencies, for the best sound from your UTE-73BT. For a true power upgrade, add-on the KTP-445A Power Pack to instantly increase your head unit’s power from 18W x 4 RMS to a true 45W x4 RMS (based on CEA-2006 power ratings).
