Summary: It ias a very nice stereo, i've had one before in my motorhome. What I like about it is it's an am-fm stereo/cd player & I can also plug my ipod into it. It has plenty of volume when i'm on the highway, some can be hard to hear on a motorcycle at 70 mph or so, but this works nice.
Summary: I bought this stereo for the sole reason to listen to long messages/sermons that I'd burn to a MP3 cd. I'm unhappy how the unit fast-forwards / rewinds within a track. You have to hold the fast-forward or rewind button, and the track slowly advances about 5 seconds for every second you hold the button.
Summary: It may not have a pre amp, but if you just want to rock out, it pushes 50 watts on 4 channels - so it does have some giddyup of its own. I have this headunit, a pair of XPLOD XS-GT6935A 6x9s in back and XPLOD XS-W3521 3.5" up front. Got to tell you don't see why I would need an amp. Is plenty loud and clean. Has the auxilliary input but also plays mp3s on disks as well, so almost no need for it unless you are Die Hard IPOD person.
Excerpt: "...this headunit its made by sony which i belive are a good make, well it does your normal cd's and also your raio which you expect it to do anyway but also it does MP3 format and WMA aswell it car power 4x50W giving it a total of 200 Watt which it not bad at all. going to the downside it does not come with bluetooth or ipod control, usb and its not touch screen but never the less for the price its not a bad cd player and to be honest i dont think you ...
