Big Xplod Style

Now you can get that large Xplod style in a bigger Double DIN area. With Sony's WX-GT77UI, you will be able to experience that unique Sony Xplod style, simplicity, as well as that unique Xplod equalizer sound. The face of the unit features a basic two-line display and a circular theme that makes controlling the unit easy, as well as added a sense of style to your vehicles dash. On the rear of the receiver is a USB port that enables the connection of a iPod, which can then be controlled directly from the headunit. To make the navigation of songs easier, Sony had developed ZAPPIN technology to assist in the searching for song tracks. The WX-GT77UI also features a built-in 3-band parametric equalizer that has several presets so you can get the most out of your music, no matter what genres you listen to. If your car has steering wheel controls, the simple add on of PAC's SWI-PS will retain those controls so you can keep those convenient controls. On the front of the unit there is a auxiliary input that allows the connection of other audio sources such as MP3 players, Microsoft Zunes, Smart Phones, and other audio devices. For the simple upgrade to an aftermarket double DIN receiver, the Sony WX-GT77UI is the perfect solution for both style and sound quality!

In-Dash Receiver Specifications

Receiver Size

Single DIN: 1 DIN dimensions will work with all single DIN installation kits we have to offer. Single DIN radios are the most common size for after-market stereos.

Single DIN slot with flip-out screen: The DIN stereo includes a retractable, flip-out screen. Before purchasing, make measurements to be sure there is no interference with dash accessories such as A/C vents or shift levers.

Single DIN slot with a larger face: Standard single DIN size, but the display is larger then the standard single DIN size. Due to the nature of the larger face, problems may arise when installing in particular vehicles. These stereos are great for single DIN slots where you want a larger screen.

1.5 DIN: This size is very uncommon in vehicles, however this size opening is most commonly found in Chrysler and Chevrolet vehicles.

Double DIN: Approximately 4-inches in height, this size is becoming more common every year. Prior to 2000, this size was typically only found in Japanese vehicles such as those made by Honda or Toyota. Now, it is becoming more popular for many vehicles to be fit with a Double DIN opening.

Double DIN
Faceplate Security

Detachable / Removable faceplate security: The most common anti-theft feature. It allows you to take the faceplate with you, thus disallowing operation, which deters theft.

Security Codes: Mainly a feature in high end video units which do not have a detachable face / screen. Once the unit is uninstalled (or stolen), a security code (or PIN) is required upon reinstallation. Though you no longer have your unit after the theft, the thief also does not have your security code, which makes the unit useless. The hope is the thief knows which units have security codes and he/she chooses not to steal your unit because of the security code.

Ghost technology: This is not commonly used, but can be found primarily in a select number of 2004-2005 head units. It creates an illusion that no unit is installed by appearing completely black when turned off. Potential thieves may steer clear because it appears as though no head unit is installed.

Anti-theft covers: Similar to ghost and hiding faces because they only create an illusion that the face/unit is not in place.

ESN: Stands for Electronic Serial Number. Allows the disabling of the radio and allows tracking if it is stolen.

None
Motorized Faceplate
Some in-dash car stereos feature a motorized faceplate that moves to expose a CD or DVD slot. This is a convenient feature that allows the front display to be larger and easier to read. The positioning of the monitor gives you control over the angle you would like to view information on the stereo.
No
Remote Control
Allows control of specific features and functions from a remote control. Typically they are used to prevent button wear on your radio, or to allow easier navigation of menus.
Yes
Peak Power Output
This form of power rating refers to the maximum amount of power an electronic device can handle or output in an instant without damage occurring. Often times this maximum is achieved during a brief musical burst, such as a drum accent, or low bass hit.

Some manufacturers display peak power ratings on the face of their products to increase the appeal to consumers. The RMS power rating is more accurate, and we recommend using it for product comparison.

52 watts x 4 channels
RMS Power Output
The amount of continuous power, measured in watts, that an amplifier produces is called RMS power. The higher the RMS rating, the louder and cleaner your music sounds. The RMS output figure is much more accurate than the peak rating when comparing products.
17 watts x 4 channels
Preamp RCA Outputs
RCA outputs, commonly known as preamp outputs, allow you to connect one or sometimes multiple external amplifiers. An in-dash receiver will commonly have one, two or three sets of RCA outputs that can be used to connect external amplifiers and other components. One pair of RCA outputs will typically provide a full range signal that can be used for most subwoofer or speaker amplifiers. Two pairs of RCA outputs can typically be configured as four full range signals, or also as two full range and two subwoofer signals. Three sets of RCA outputs will almost always produce four speaker signals and two subwoofer signals for use with multiple amplifiers.
3 Pairs (Front, Rear, and Subwoofer)
Dedicated Subwoofer Preamp RCA Output
A dedicated output that has a built-in low-pass crossover for specific connection to a subwoofer amplifier that powers a low frequency driver, typically a subwoofer.
Yes
Preamp Voltage
The preamp output rating is measured in volts (V). The higher the rating, the stronger the signal. This results in less unwanted noise being picked up.
2 volts
Built-In Equalizer
The number of graphic or parametric equalizer bands the stereo receiver is equipped with. The more EQ options, the more you will be able to adjust your music to your liking.
EQ3
Display Type
The type of display on your receiver refers to the monitor that is used to display the source information such as song names, radio stations, or track times.

Dot-Matrix Text Display: A simple display which uses dots in specific illuminated color(s) to light up and form letters or numbers that are displayed on the receiver.

Graphic or Motion Display: Typically found in mid to high-end receivers and give your text information and receiver more life by adding motion, backgrounds, or multiple colors to your display. There are types of graphic displays such as 3D Graphic, Motion, and OEL (Organic Electroluminescent) displays. They can range from one color to full color displays and typically allow you to select from one of many built-in animations, background images, screensavers or other graphics to enhance your experience and add an extra bit of personality to your system. Some units also come with software that allow you to load your own customizable pictures or animations.

LCD Monitor Display: Can be as small as 2" or as large as 10". Some LCD displays are motorized for angle adjustment. LCD monitors display full motion video playback as well as your standard text such as track status, radio station information and more depending on the receiver's features.

Dot-Matrix Text Display
Display Color
The display color refers to the color of the text and or graphics on the receiver.

Multi-Color: When more than one color is on the display, for example one part of the text is white, while the other part is blue.

Variable-Color: The display colors can be changed by the user. If the default color of text/display is blue for example, the user can change the settings to where the color turns to red. Variable color displays are typically described in detail in the item's description.

TFT-LCD Display: In-dash receivers with a video screen that display multiple colors and often times video such as DVD, navigation or other video sources.

White
Button Color
Refers to the color of the physical buttons on the unit.
Blue and Green
CD Signal-to-Noise
CD Signal-to-Noise Ratio is a key specification that is often overlooked by newbies. The CD S/N Ratio measures how well the CD player silences background noise. Higher ratings in decibels (dB) indicates less noise, and generally a cleaner signal.
120 dB
CEA-2006 Compliant
Amplifiers that have been tested to meet specific standards. When a car amplifier meets these standards, you can be sure that it will be able to produce the amount of power specified by the official CEA-2006 rating. Usually, these rating consist of the following items:
  • RMS Power
  • Signal-to-Noise Ratio

This rating applies to both external car amplifiers, as well as the amplifiers inside of in-dash stereos.

Yes

Playback Features

AM/FM Tuner
Most in-dash CD players have AM/FM playback allowing you listen to your favorite local radio stations.

Radio Data System (RDS)
Receivers with Radio Data System (RDS) tuners can receive digital broadcast information about the FM radio station including program name, time and station identification. RDS enables your receiver to display text messages that many FM stations include on a sub-carrier signal within their normal broadcast signal. Some RDS tuners can even break in with traffic alerts or emergency broadcasts when you're listening to a CD.
CD-R/RW Playback
This feature refers to whether or not the CD player will play finalized CD-R discs and/or CD-RW discs.
Yes

Audio / Video Inputs

USB Input
This feature refers to whether or not the receiver features an input to connect a USB device via standard USB or mini-USB. The USB input may be a connection on the front or rear of the unit with an extension cable for connecting devices to the receiver. Some units have an optional input that allows for a USB adapter to be purchased separately and used with the unit.
Rear
Number of Front USB Inputs
Number of Rear USB Inputs
Additional Audio/Video Inputs
These inputs enable the unit to receive an audio or video signal from a separate source. There are many different types of connections and ways to accomplish this. Most common are RCA Composite cables and 3.5mm mini-jack plugs.

RCA Composite Inputs
These are your typical red, white, and yellow RCA composite cables that are common among devices with audio and video inputs. The red and white cables are dedicated for audio. The red cable is for the right channel and the white is for the left channel. The yellow cable is specifically for the video signal. Because this type of auxiliary cable contains 2 channels of audio, it will support stereo sound.

3.5mm
This is commonly referred to as a mini-jack or a headphone jack. It is a 3.5mm plug that transfers audio only. There is a right and left audio channel on the plug which allows for stereo sound playback.

3.5mm AV Input
These plugs look similar to the common 3.5mm mini-jack, however they carry a third channel dedicated for video.

Optional
This means that an auxiliary input is possible, but only with the use of an optional accessory. These optional adapters will sometimes use the CD Changer port or other port on the back of a unit that might restrict the use of other expandability features. These accessories are typically sold separately.

1 Set of Rear Audio RCA Inputs
Front 3.5mm

Monitor Screen Features

For the most part this is an awesome head unit. It fits very nicely into my 2007 Ford Fusion. The added remote is a bonus and the display is very retro looking. The only downside is that some of the buttons are difficult to push at times.

This has been a nice replacement of the stock radio in my Toyota van. The price point was great and I have the ability to exapnd on it as needed. The seek function is a little cumbersome, but with the remote it is fine (the buttons on the faceplate are tucked behind the main nob...argh).

great unit, awesome price.

May 21, 2010

This HU is worth the money. I usually go with pioneer for head units but my stereo system was recently stolen and had to get something more affordable. For the price you cant beat this HU, works great, ipod/iphone functionality is great. I have used my ipod nano, iphone (original) and wife's iphone 3G and they all work seamlessly. The unit looks great and actually sounds really good for not having my speakers on an amp. I have two complaints about this unit, the screen class is very reflective and on sunny days it is hard to read. The display is not able to display two items at the same time, such as the name of the song and the time. it can only do one at a time. These are very minor issues. Overall I'm extremely happy that I purchased this unit, i was worried that for the price I was going to get crap but it is very well designed and works great. The ipod/iphone search feature also works well, very easy to search by album/artist/track etc.

This is the best head unit! I finally installed it in 1989 Nissan 240 SX SE and with some subs in the trunk and it really bumps! The remote commander makes the unit easier to use and all I do is connect my USB Flash drive to the USB plug built in on the unit and it reads it easily. I always get compliments on how nice the radio looks installed in the dash and the installation was easy! I would recommend this to anyone!

August 8, 2009

I needed a replacement radio for my 2002 Escape and this Sony unit really caught my eye. It is a double din head unit which required a little dash opening modification but everything worked out well. When I called Sonic customer service they were very helpful guiding me through the wiring harness connections. The Sony unit has larger buttons and the iPod wire connection is a real plus. Thank You Sonic for a great product at a great price !!!

Not a quality product

December 20, 2011

I purchased this last summer and I have not been thrilled with its performance. The connection to the iPod works but the control of the iPod from the stereo is primitive - it will only play things in album order, and who buys complete albums these days? Then the radio went out after three months - no AM and very weak FM. Spent $33 sending it back to Sony for warranty repair. After they fixed it the first time, the unit came back with no AM or FM! Sent it back again, and it still does not work. Very disappointing.

June 20, 2011

I wanted a double-din receiver to replace the crappy factory unit in my '04 Trailblazer. I was amazed at what this unit was able to bring out of the factory speakers! They still have their limits, but this receiver does a great job - I have been REALLY happy with it. Navigating the iPod is a little clunky, but it works fine. Some other reviews said the buttons were hard to push, but I disagree. The buttons are designed to pivot from the inside edge of the button, out to the beveled edge on the outside. If you push the outside of the button it works with normal effort. I can see how some people might be confused by the design, but if you think about how the button moves it makes sense.

Good stereo, good radio reception, reading mp3 easily, display may be more informative and less blind on sun light . Recognized my iPhone 3GS but never played music from it. Never tried to connect iPod may be those connection will work. Connected only with regular flash drives , but with 4 different and device worked correctly with all of them. Sound also is very good with my front standart and back 3 way JBL speakers. Over all good for the buck

Awesome Stereo

September 29, 2010

I bought this to go into my 2003 Suzuki Aerio sedan. I love it. It was easy to install and sounds great. Way more powerful than my stock radio and too many features to list in one review. The main advantage is the ipod control. I have my ipod in the glove box and that is all I listen to. It charges any time the car is on so the only reason to take it out is to update the songs if I buy some new ones. The controls are quick and easy to use. You can switch songs, artists, albums, playlists without any trouble at all. If you are looking for a less expensive radio with fully integrated ipod controls I highly recommend this Sony!

February 11, 2010

Installed this unit in a 2008 Frontier during the last snowstorm. Wiring harness and Antenna adapter made hookup very easy but dash kit required trim modifications to make it fit. Also got Sony XT-100HD tuner and the required wires in back of the head unit made for a difficult fit in the dash (needed to bend a support tab on dash). Unit looks great, sounds great, and is very easy to navigate. One of the best units out there for the price in a double DIN style. With HD tuner and sub amp, unit recognized both and the whole package works perfect. Very happy I upgraded my stock radio. Although I wish the unit came with Built-in HD, lot of extra wires. Also, orange would be a nice third color option since my Nissan uses that color for back lighting.

I bought this unit for the price, I had no idea I could listen to and charge my Iphone at the same time. It also works well with other MP3 players I've tried. the only thing that I feel need improvement is the sensitivity of the volume knob, it's too sensitive, if your adjusting the volume and hit a bump in the road you can easily find yourself adjusting sounds or balance.

sony stereo review wx-gt77ui

July 18, 2011

Stereo sounds great. isn't lit up until it's cut on so the on switch is hard to find after dark but still a great buy. I have had mine for a few months now with no problems.

Absolutely couldn't find something like that in Canada :-(
Not super advanced, but good designed and greate sounding Working Horse. I mainly use it with flash drive and LOVE IT! Hovever other features like radio and CD player work very well and so far reliable too.
I bought it just about half year ago. And thanks to Sonic Electronix that also supplied all needed part, I installed that very easily. Now I just enjoy it.
Cost every cent! I'd very recommend it and this seller to my friends.

Good Unit for the $$$

May 9, 2011

I was looking for a replacement radio for my 08' Civic w/ iPod connection, you will need the purchase the separate iPod cable or that feature will not work for you. Install was simple no modifications needed to dash kit. Radios features are very basic but didn't expect it to be more than what I was paying for. The appearance looks nice installed if that matters to you. It definitely has the power. All in all it's a good buy for the money so if your on a budget I'd say go for it.

May 6, 2011

This head unit blows my mind and has restored my faith in Sony after many years of Pioneer. Awesome retro-futuristic looks. Easy to program and use. My 16-year old had no problems installing this in my 2006 Silverado Crew Cab. The required wire harness retained all of my factory chimes and features I like about the truck. Fits nicely in the factory double din slot. The oly thing that would make this better is if it had a built-in HD Tuner. Oher than that, no complaints.

April 19, 2011

I have had this Sony head unit in my truck for about 6 months and so far it has been great. The buttons are a bit hard to push in and is slightly annoying but I don't think it should keep a person away. The first thing you should do is deactivate the "demo" mode because that had me frustrated for a good month until I looked back at the book and shut it off. Other then that is has worked well and soon I will be hooking a sub up with some new speakers to really make the system better.

sony wx-gt77ui

April 16, 2011

excellent car stereo for the money. I needed a double din to go in my
'02 explorer bc a single din just looks ridiculous in that big slot. I was shocked to find a sony so cheap. after reading some reviews i decided to buy it and im glad i did. it doesn't have video or blue tooth like some of the newer (and more expensive) models, but i didn't care about either. it is hd radio and satellite radio ready, it has a usb port and is ipod ready, and it has an aux port on the front. basic controls are great, however it is a little confusing getting use to more detailed controls such as bass, balance, dim control, etc. The usb port is a cable that comes out of the back of the stereo and you have to find a place to hide it which i don't like. I would rather have a port on the front to plug into. However, all in all I'm very happy. It's a lot of stereo for the money. I don't care for some flashy unit that jumps out at you when you open the door. I wanted something that sort of "blends in" and goes away. This unit does that perfectly with its simple look and a feature that allows you to set the backlight to blue or green to match your vehicle. No skips with the cd player, and the tuner picks up great. Good stereo for someone wanting simple and inexpensive.

Great Sound, Lots of tone options! Noticed a Huge difference from my factory Head Unit to this one! My aftermarket speakers sound much more richer and fuller than before!

Pros: Has an (orange) dimmer cable. USB control.
Sub Woofer control. Illumination options (blue) or (green).

Cons: Not really a deal breaker, but the front buttons seem a little stiff.
Perhaps because it is new. Installed it just yesterday.

Overall very thrilled to have this in my '05 Camry!
Also is working fine with Axxess ASWC steering wheel control system.

I have owned several Sony head units and this unit is a great choice if you want a unit that has plenty of options. You can hook a iPod or other mp3 player directly into the unit via USB port. It also has a separate sub volume control. It sounds great in my Chevy Colorado and has worked flawlessly, which I have come to expect from Sony. I just wish they would have used the extra space since it's a double din unit, for something like a 6 disk changer instead of just a metal cage with nothing in it.

January 3, 2011

I received this for Christmas,got to install it today in my ford ranger. It came with the harness and mounting brackets,and it was a breeze to put in. You will have to cut the lip off the top and bottom of the dash panel opening after you pull the old radio out, but that was it, it slid right in after . i used a dremel tool with a universal bit. I will get to the new speakers this week, but let me say i have listened to it on the old factory speakers and it sounds excellent, Cranks pretty good!! can't wait to hear it on the new pioneer's, You can't go wrong with this unit @ this price.i can't really add about durability,as I'm still on day one.

I just installed this Sony into my wife's 1999 Camry because the stock CD player quit working. Installation was a breeze with the connector kit. The brackets from the stock stereo bolted right to the Sony and the unit bolted right back into the stock spot. It sounds great with the factory speakers and the IPod functioned first try. It will take some time to learn how to operate but she has the book. Overall, I recommend buying this. I wish my other vehicles had 2Din size stereos because I would buy two more.

Superior Functionability

October 26, 2010

I have recently purchased and received this Sony WX-GT77UI deck. I must comment that the waiting period for the international shipping of this product was satisfactory (2 1/2 weeks). Firstly, the appearance of the item is very impressive and attractive coupled with clear, powerful bass. Compared to the JVC KD-LH300 model previously installed in my vehicle, this item produces bass sounds at a lower volume at which the former could not perform. Installation was a bit problematic as I was not able to achieve the flush look I was gunning for but this point is moot. However, the functions of the apparatus were easy to use after a few attempts. Since I have only just received this deck my only suggestion is that the display could be made to itemize mp3 files into visible list format for easier navigation. Overall, great value for my money!

Good performance; Hard to read display in daylight

September 23, 2010

Great value. Easy to use(after reading instruction manual and practice)
Great ipod interface, we listen to books and music on my wife's ipod , my mp3, and sometimes cds. Our late nineties gran marquis rides are great on interstate and now has latest music interfaces.
Equalizer settings has 'vocal' setting which really helps my old ears with understanding the lyrics. Another electronic store installed mine for $50, They don't carry this model. Well worth the price to have it installed...lots of wiring connections
Need passenger to change ipod settings during daylight while driving; VERY difficult to read display in bright daylight driving conditions.

sony wx-gt77ui --- good buy

August 26, 2010

I bought the sony wx-gt77ui, because it was not to flashy as the touch screen units, plus it had all the features I was looking for. It has been an excellent stereo. My only complaint has to be with the ipod feature, it is difficult to navigate your ipod using the head unit through the usb port, I wish you could just change songs or listen to podcast by just navigating threw the ipod interface. The Sony is difficult to the point you just want to plug it into the aux port or just let it play where it is. Everything else has been perfect.

Great iPhone Receiver for $!

August 16, 2010

I've owned this receiver for about 6 months and it's been a great product. It's a great value for the money, by far the cheapest double-din receiver I could find that worked well with the iPhone, scrolls text, and looks solid.

Pros
- Great value, doesn't look cheap/plasticy at all!
- Scrolls iPhone album/artist/song text
- USB extension works great for keeping iPhone in cup holder and not needing to drill or run a wire through the front dash
- Option to control from iPhone manually or through receiver
- Green back lighting to match my instrument panel
- Good equalizer

Cons
- Buttons are a bit tough to press
- Randomly changes the play format to "shuffle"
- Wish it had nicer graphics or smaller text on LCD

Awesome Head Unit

April 9, 2010

I really like this HU overall. There are a huge amount of features that you will never find in a stock stereo. The backlights on the buttons change between blue and green so it should fit in with most cars. The only thing I don't like is that the time doesn't display at the same time you have the track time on display, but this isn't a deal breaker...I just don't see why they couldn't have all the information there at once since the screen is plenty big enough. It sounds great, though, and I haven't had any problems with it.

Looks good, plays great and, makes sounds incredibly crisp. For the value nothing is going to beat it. Very easy to use, you want the USB in the back not the front. If you put a USB stick in the front of a receiver it is going to get broken at some point.

Easy to install also, I have this in a 2006 VW Passat and it makes the sound system just perfect.

This unit wasn't available in Canada, and I didn't want to spend hundreds on a touchscreen receiver, so I decided to order from Sonic. Installation in a 2003 Grand Am was easy with the mounting kit, harness, and antenna adapter from Sonic. Only some basic soldering required.

Unit sounds great with stock monsoon speakers, ipod integration is seamless, and I'm picking up radio stations I never received clearly before. Only downside to this order was $65 additional charges from UPS.

Still a little Weary about this Stereo

November 4, 2011

Shortly after receiving the stereo I purchased I started having slight problems with it malfunctioning. Sometimes when I would turn my car on there would be a fuzzy sound in the speakers but no actual volume. I would switch sources from radio to cd to usb (mp3 player) but the fuzziness would still remain. After turning off the stereo and the car and turning them back on again the stereo would function perfectly. Also there is a surround sound function that is accessed by pushing in on the volume knob. Sometimes when I go to turn up the volume the surround sound is activated instead and then I have to go through all of the audio presets to get back to the volume. The stereo has great sound quality and many great functions....especially for how affordable it was but I wouldn't say that I'm absolutely thrilled with it.

The IPOD functions work just fine and we love listening to hours and hours of music with no annoying DJs or commercials. It more that met my expectations. Sound is great. With the added power output of this unit there was no need to replace the speakers. It brought them to life.

I guess there's only one thing about it that in cold weather the screen is a bit slow but I guess this is something normal to all electronics in severe cold weather. I've had it for like 6 months now and it has no issues its working great. Its easy to install you can do it yourself.

Good Value, Decent Performance

March 4, 2011

I installed this unit in an '02 EX Accord sedan. The install was very easy - there is a lot of room in this dash. I even had room for my crossovers under the radio. The Sonic Electronix kit was perfect. For perspective, I'm powering a pair of Infinity Kappa components with the head unit (up front) and some 6x9's in back. I'm also running lines to a subwoofer amplifier in the trunk. I'm more into SQL (on a budget) than SPL.

Overall, I'm pleased with the unit. While I've clearly had better units, they also cost 2 to 3x the cost of this one.

PRO's:
Decent bass management (high/low pass filters)
Equalization isn't bad (3 channel)
Gain on the Aux input is nice
It plays AND CHARGES my iPhone 4
If you're running factory speakers, the MP3 enhncement feature works well (but it gets overwhelming with better speakers)
The controls became intuitive relatively quickly.
Remote control was well thought out - I use it a lot (I don't miss my steering wheel controls).

CON's:
It has audible distortion at 1/2 volume and up (an external 4 channel amp would likely solve this).
It won't play Pandora over the USB connection (must use Aux).
The AUX input distorts beyond a certain point - and I am constantly up against this point (at 85 or so dB) and lowering the gain doesn't help.
Display is hard to see in direct sunlight.

Fits my 1995 Miata

February 3, 2011

Sounds great, fit in my 1995 Mazda Miata, which uses a non-standard radio size. There is a small gap around the top and bottom, which I plan on filling with a small strip of black foam. The built-in amp is nice and loud, stock speakers sound even better, including the headrest speakers. I plan on putting a set of polk db6501 in later, and some Boston Acoustics 3.5" in the headrests to further make use of this awesome radio! Looks cool, I'm glad I didn't get the touch screen pioneer I was looking at because the 5sp gear shift would block the display. Not so with the sony, it works great, installed in less than an hour.

This head unit truly is awesome. It may not play pictures or video but has a classy look and futuristic style that almost looks stock but cooler. I have it hooked up to a phoenix gold 12" Sd sub along w a power acoustic stax, and polk audio speakers. The thing pounds hard & looks great and with a name like Sony how can you go wrong?

Bought a second unit

November 2, 2010

Received one for the Lexus (quickly shipped), very pleased and impressed with the quality of the sound, it simply blew away the stock unit.. I had to get another for the truck to replace an aging sony unit

Tons of features for the money, if i had a third car I probably would have bought again..really happy with the sound coming from this unit!

From a technical standpoint!

October 8, 2010

This is well worth the money. With a quick tune (using mp3s designed for tuning from a USB drive) I got this thing up and running with a Polk and Alpine amp (4 channel and sub)
AMAZING! best sounding head unit I have EVER owned. I'm quite surprised. I leave it with ALL EQ OFF. The eq works good, but it just sounds better with it off!
Downfall? Blue lights are blinding at night while driving. But hey, its a tradeoff in my eyes. Buy this if you need a head unit. If you can fit it, and don't want navi, this is the next best budget headunit! Sony actually built a GREAT product this time!
Despite it having a small volume knob, its easy to use. The USB reader is great for any size thumb drive.
The CD player is LOUD and crisp. (120db S/N!)
while only 2V RMS preamps, they do the trick.
has a line in on the front ( and i think on the rear)
Been running for about 6 months, no issues!!!

Sweet looking, good value, double din

September 28, 2010

I bought this rather than a video double din and i'm glad I did. I probably never would have watched video in my car and i saved a few hundred bucks. The ipod support is perfect and reads without any delay jumping between tracks. It is a little slower loading from a habit mass storage mode. It did surprise me and read past all the other files on my Droid X to find the music though so that's sweet.
It was easy to hookup for a double din and doesn't do anything worse than any other stereo i've had.
I am running it through some 3way Sony 6x9s and it is crisp and responsive.

Great Radio for the Money

August 11, 2010

I was hunting for a radio that I could play music from my flash drive. I stumbled on this. It was a nice looking double din with all the features I wanted at a great price (great brand too). I have had it for six months and no complaints. It has enough power that I think I blew one of my factory speakers - great sound. I really really like not having all my CD's with me. I have about 30 cd's on my flash drive and play songs from there more then I listen to the radio. I couldn't be happier with this purchase - got all I wanted and didn't break the bank. (installed on a 07' classic silverado)

Sony Head unit

June 17, 2010

I got this to replace the stock unit and the LOC (line output converter) I had installed in my Yaris. Installed seamlessly and quickly. Typically I do not go for Sony stereos, but this one compliments the interior style of my car as well as has great i/o capabilities.

Pros:
I can forget my iPod since i have 4Gb thumbdrive full of my music.
Very simple interface
Great design
Remote has excellent distance
Features are very easy to configure
EQ comes with decent presets
Outputs for All of my amps (not that daisy chaining them was a bad thing :) )

Cons:
Sometimes function buttons are tricky to push, not that they stick but more like they just won't budge.

Best HU for the money

June 7, 2010

Ive spent a lot of time and money on multiple cars installing audio systems. For my 07 civic, i didn't want a navi as it would attract too much attention, but I wanted something that would fit nicely in the DD opening. This HU has a LOT of nice features. For one, it comes with an equalizer with presets and a custom option. It also reads USB's and CDs VERY FAST. With CDs, its almost as fast as the factory unit, something NO alpine head unit has EVER done. Its very responsive, and hasnt had ANYTHING fail yet. Paired with a polk amp and polk speakers (alpine sub amp and powerbass sub for now) this system rocks you. With the windows up, they can barely tell I have a sub (unless I am in a garage... guess it echos nicely). With the windows down I am blowing peoples ears away, and with NO DISTORTION!!!!
FM reception is a little eh, but thats something with every aftermarket HU ive ever owned. Get this for the USB!!! Well worth it!

So far, so good

February 22, 2010

Have had this for a week so far, sounds great, ipod controls are great, easy to install with included hardware from Sonic electronics. I like it very much but some things that bothered me a little, only 2 line display, will not show station and time at the same time or Ipod info and time at the same time but thats really no big deal. Overall I think this is a very good deal, sounds great and looks pretty cool in my dash. Ipod sounds ten times better that my factory Aux. Input I originally had.

At first glance, people look at my 03 Subaru Outback and think that the stereo is straight from the factory because the black double din fits so well. Which is great when it comes to theft. Once they realize it's a Sony and not a factory stereo, then I tell them that the music they are listening to came off of my windows media player files downloaded to my thumb drive. I don't have to carry CD's around and fiddle with folders while I'm trying to drive, I just click the search button and I can listen to as many different songs as I can fit on the thumb drive which is neatly hidden away in my console (not sticking out of the head unit and in my way) thanks to the USB wire from the back of the unit! It's Freakin' Great!

2014 chevy Silverado is it 1 din or 2din? thanx
A shopper on Dec 17, 2014
Best Answer: Hello,

Technically, a Double Din Headunit can fit your vehicle, with the correct Dash Kit. OF WHICH!, requires you to cut out the plastic rails inside the radio cavity when installing a double-DIN (4" tall) receiver in this vehicle. Use the link below for details.
