Question about Alpine CDM-7857 CD Player

1 Answer

Want to know if I can use the line-level inputs from the CD Chgr

So I've got this great Alpine CDM-7857 head unit. I've seen adapters that adapt AI-NET CD changer ports to RCA inputs (for use with MP3 players and such), but I'm not sure if they're what I need. They show a DIN-sized jack but with two large prongs on the inside. Mine looks more like a DIN jack - it has several pins on the inside. However, the manual for the head unit promotes some AI-NET CD changers, so... now I'm just confused. Thanks!

Your alpine unit is the old "M-BUS" the other adapter you are talking about is an "AI-BUS" adapter. (Hence the model numbers beginning with CD"M" or CD"A" ...)

Look for an Alpine M-Bus to RCA Input adapter.

heres one on eay for less than 10.00 including shipping.

I purchased a used Suburban in which the previous owner installed an Alpine CDM-7857 receiver. Although I do not have the Alpine owner's manual I figured out most the receiver's operations except how to...


According to the manual follow these steps

While the clock is displayed, hold down the clock button for 3 seconds.
Time indicator will blink.
Press the ct button to set the seconds.
Press the H button for the hour.
and M for minutes.

Time indication will stop blinking 5 seconds after the ajustment.
Then the time will automatically be set.

Just in case I will include the link to the manual for other operations.....

I have my cd changer (alpine) plugged into the input port via ai net cable and I have the output going to the alpine radio (cda 9886) via ai net cable. When I hit the source button everything comes up but...


One thing to verify is that the Ai-Net switch at the bottom of the radio is set to Norm and not the EQ position. And also gray Ai-Net connectors are for audio input and the black Ai-Net connectors are for audio output. It sounds like you have everything connected correctly and at least the Sirius is coming up. And I assume that the CD changer works when connected directly to the reciever so you know that it is working. I would suspect that there might be a problem with the Sirius reciever not allowing the communication signal to connect to the Alpine deck and in that case you would need to get a new reciever. You could check the Alpine radio settings and see if there is something that needs to be changed in order to allow the CD changer to work. If you disconnected the battery connection to the radio then it might have reset the settings to factory default. Otherwise it sounds to me like the problem is with the Sirius reciever.

Ai-NET/RCA Interface cable (KCA-121B)
Converts the changer port to RCAs... then an RCA to female 3.5mm female adapter.
Or an FM Modulator.

Ipod to alpine CDM-9821


Hello andrewbheber,

Your head unit is an Alpine "M-Bus" unit and has a proprietary connector for the AUX input. It requires a special cable from Alpine, the model KCM-123B..

Here's a link to the product. Click on the cable itself to see an image of what the connector on the back of your receiver looks like.

Hope this helps.

Get a cd/aux adapter from an alpine dealer, this will change your cd changer input on the back of the radio to a RCA input, then get yourself a Y adapter, and head phone adapter, and you are set..
