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 is the CD Player that was in my most recent car, a BMW Z3. It didn't come as standard so was obviously fitted by a previous owner. I really like Sony CD players for cars as they sound great and seem to fit in really well. Some are bulky and stick out the hole for them but this is great and fits really snugly. This CD player is not a multichange version but I really only needed 1 CD in at a time so didn't see the point of changing it.
Excerpt: All tech-savvy drivers want their car stereos to play MP3 CDs and have a hookup for an MP3 player. Sony shows that it gets this market with the launch of four new car-stereo head units. The bottom-end one, the CDX-GT110, sells for about £40 and has an auxiliary input on the faceplate. And of course, it plays MP3 CDs.
