When Simplicity Isnít Enough

Stereos today can provide high quality sound processing so you can enjoy your music to its full potential. When you get the option to fine tune every speaker in your vehicle to perfection, you know itís been done correctly. The Sony CDX-GT650UI has options available for convenience, but has kept high fidelity sound processing its main focus.

This receiver has the ability to playback from an iPod through its USB port located in the front. This port, along with its 3.5mm auxiliary will allow you to playback from your MP3 player, iPod, or mobile phone. Some features also added to this stereo allow you to find music easier as well, like Zappin. This feature allows you to hear a small portion of each song to help find what specific song youíre looking for. Also, its Quick BrowZer lets you search for songs through categories like artist, album, genre, and playlist. Its impressive two-line display allows you to see as much information regarding your equalizer adjustments, and song information on one screen.

SensMe is a feature released by Sony that has recently been incorporated with their In-Dash CD Receivers, which gives you the ability to categorize your music from your iPod or Sony Walkman. You can select categories based on Happy Songs, Mellow Songs, Up-tempo Songs, Calm Songs, Rock Songs, Ballad Songs, and more. This feature uses highly advanced 12 Tone Analysis Technology in order to break down each song and categorize it properly.

Maintaining elements of its previous design, the CDX-GT650UI now has the ability to adjust its button and display lighting color to over 35,000 colors; however the appearance isnít the only feature to have changed. A newly added Advanced Sound Engine has upgraded their equalizing features from the EQ3, to the impressively adjustable EQ7. This gives you a full 7 bands of equalization to adjust, and allows each genre to be complimented with its own presets, or user based custom settings. This Advanced Sound Engine has also incorporated the feature of adjusting your listening position to provide better time alignment to the human ear. Whether it is high quality audio, or convenience youíre after, the CDX-GT650UI will adapt to any lifestyle.

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.

Single 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.

Detachable
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.
EQ7 7-Band parametric equalizer with 7 selectable tone curves
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.

LCD 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.

35,000 Variable Colors
Button Color
Refers to the color of the physical buttons on the unit.
35,000 Variable Colors
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

I was looking for something to play music...

September 13, 2014

I didn't want a HU 75% dedicated to bluetooth and fancy phones, address lists, handsfree, or every iPod feature invented to date. I just wanted a HU with front AUX and USB capability, so that I could move on from CD technology. I also wanted a minimum of 4 pre-outs as all my speakers are amped. Lastly, I was keen to get some time alignment ability to get a decent sound stage.

After browsing a bunch of mid-range units I found the SONY CDX-GT605UI. It had everything I was after, and I was happy enough to accept the CD player and iPod control as part of the package. Just got it installed and was immediately impressed by the clarity and power of the radio. Obviously USB quality will be heavily dependent on the quality of the MP3's that are being played. I shall be playing FLAC files thru the AUX-IN via my Cowon digital player.

The only downside to the SONY is the awkwardness involved in attaching the drop-down faceplate. I'll have to find a work around for that. And, yeah, get a couple of those mini-USB flashdrives for your music and you will never look back :) So, not perfect, but great value and as close to ideal as you can get for someone to whom music quality is more important than gadgetry !!!

Never ever buy this if you drive a little after dark.

November 15, 2013

This is a perfect unit for sound and useability, but the extremely irritating screen demo that loops every 5mins really gets on my nerves. It HAS to let you know that it has got so many colors and useless functions. When u have set the color to RED so u dont get blinded, and the first democolor is BRIGHT WHITE, u get my frustration. Where i live its dark from 3p.m to 9a.m......

GR8 Head Unit for the Money

October 19, 2011

I highly recommend this product! My wife bought me this Sony to replace my old Sony CD player in my car and it sounds amazing. The dash kit and wire install kit fit great in my Toyota. The volume knob does touch the dash board kit when unit face is flipped down to insert/eject CDs, but still functions as needed. I primarily use the AUX or USB input. I installed a 350W Kenwood KAC-5203 amp and a Fosgate P310G 10" subwoofer. The unit comes with 3 pre amp rca outputs. I'm only using the SUB mono one. Sony has LPF and HPF features on this unit which produces a clean sound with no muddy bass from car speakers. Audio highs and lows have excellent separation. Navigating the different menus is user friendly as is my old Sony. The 35,000 different color display is killer! My display matches my Toyota Matrix red glow perfect. There is a random setting where unit cycles thru multiple colors which looks cool, but is very distracting when u drive. FYI, if u plan on listening to music thru the USB via a flash drive I highly recommend a MINI or MICRO flash drive with NO LED or light on it. The micro size ones r small and fit more flush to dash. My old Sandisk large usb flash drive sticks out 2"+ and has annoying lights that flashes when music is played. This is mostly a problem at night since the LED light appears brighter. Take my advice, BUY the smallest USB flash drive u can for your tunes.

Amazing Radio

August 22, 2011

I had bought this radio about 6 months ago, and ever since I have never been less than pleased. It sounds and looks amazing. Some things I liked were the ability to change the color of the radio to many different colors and how easy and well it hooked up and played my ipod. Currently i have it hooked up for two subs and a 4 channel Polk amp for the Polk door speakers. Thanks to the 7 band equalizer tuning the radio was simple. Not only am i pleased with this radio, but so were my friends. So much so that they bought the same one and had me install it for them too. GREAT BUY. you wont go wrong with this radio.

August 17, 2011

I would recommend this to anyone who wants a decent and powerful radio with enough options to play with for a bit. Sounds great and definately powerful enough. Easy install ( what radio isn't) and simple controls, no real big learning curve. The remote is a great addition to the package. Good deal for the money. CONS; only one I can think of is to take off the face plate is easy enough but a little practice needed to get it back on with enough ease and less aggravation. Well worth the dough.

Definitely recommend this. Just got it installed alongside my Boss Phantom sub and Phantom amp, and couldn't be happier! This deck is sleek looking, the colours are amazing, and the settings are easy to access. To get to the subwoofer control is only a couple turns of the knob away, and not a big deal at all! The menu is clear, the buttons are easy to press, and overall, it's awesome. Couldn't be better for the price!

I got this head unit the other day and I have nothing but good things to say about it. Its easy to control. The colors are great. And it sounds amazing. Very good price. The only thing I don't like is the flip down screen to put the cd in. its a great feature but if you have an aux cord in then it wont go all the waY DOWN. other than that its great.

I replaced the head unit in my 04 dodge and was surprised at the difference in sound. Thought I would have to spend over 300 hundred for a head unit with so many options and great sound. The iPod controls is easy to use. Of course like anything else you just have to get used to all the controls which I still am after a week. Lots of features. The only thing I don't like is you have to go thru the buttons to see the clock. Wish they would of put the clock in the top corner so you can see what song is playing and what time it is. Anyone looking to get their money's worth should get this system.

I ordered this stereo from SonicElectronix, it arrived in 5 days. Its a great stereo with a lot of features. I got it professionally installed in my F150 the same day it arrived. I recommend this stereo, and I recommend Sonicelectronix.

Pros:
-many colors to choose from
-great iPod control built in, no need to buy any extra cables
-subwoofer control (I have a pair of 12' Kicker L7's in the backseat)
-you can't beat this stereo for the price imo, it has many features and its a low price.
-I like the button layout; the buttons are sturdy
-easy to use
-FM preset buttons, unlike JVC

Cons:
-I would like to see how much time is left on the song, like the way it shows on my iPod
-I would like to see the time all the time instead of having to push the Display button everytime.
-I don't use the SenseMe app or the Zappin button
-I would appreciate a button on the head unit or remote to let me tune the subwoofers more easy, instead of going through the menu everytime to adjust the bass
