  • Excerpt: "Stylish and sleek MP3 CD Radio Head unit. Looks great in your car and sound quality is excellent. I have owned this Head unit for 4 years and it has lasted me really well. First of all the Radio has plenty of presets that can be used to store all your favourite stations quickly and easily. It benefits from FM, MWand LW radio which I use for listening to the cricket. The CD player is excellent too, no problems, doesn't skip and you can play ...
  • Pros: Looks Great, Sounds Great and plays MP3s
  • Cons: None

  • Excerpt: "...was the one model which Sony convinced me of their superior Japanese technology. Mp3 CDs took a couple seconds to start playing, but once they were loaded, they ran like normal CDs. However because of the design of the faceplate, I always used the supplied remote control, since no matter how small they make the control knobs, my fingertips aren't getting any smaller. Navigation through the menu to find the 40th song in a folder was very simple ...
  • Pros: powerful and good FM reception anywhere
  • Cons: easily stolen

  • Excerpt: "Great head unit at the price, Full of features "that you will use" not the usual gubbins that mean nothing to anyone This head unit will work with both CD's and MP3 CD's which you can easily create at home on your PC, from downloads or ripping CDs. On average i've found I can get 8-12 full albums onto a CD which is great as I don't need an auto-changer. Also you don't need to keep rummaging about for CDs when on the move. Only problem is if ...
  • Pros: MP3 compatible, Great sound
  • Cons: Slow fast forward on MP3 CD's

  • Excerpt: "...you would expect from any sony product. The design is well laid out and easy to use as well as looking good. On the down side, it is not much use to you as an MP3 cd player if you are not able to create these CD's yourself and it can be slow to load the music compared to a normal car stereo. My biggest gripe though is if you take the key out of the ignition you need to reload the CD back into the player in order for it to play. Overall though for ...
  • Pros: Play loads of music on one CD, good Features .
  • Cons: Can be a bit slow, need a PC and CD burner to take full advantage .

  • Excerpt: "In this day and age of criminal low life's who shouldn't have a place in a modern society, it remains necessary to walk around with half your car stereo in your pocket!! but if I must, then I'm happy to carry thos faceplate around. Once I get back to my car, I know i've got a selection of 10 albums, yet no expensive multi-CD changer in my boot. Whats more, my favourite CDs are safely tucked away in my CD rack at home, not risking being scratched or ...
  • Pros: MP3 CD's can hold a lot of music !
  • Cons: takes a while to read the CD when first switched on

  • Excerpt: "...for money as with many Sony units. TUNER++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ The radio function is good quality too with RDS and traffic alert etc, and lots of room for pre-sets of radio channels. There's also a remote control for the extremely cautious or terminally lazy!! Or maybe for posing by the car? who knows, or cares with such quality and gadgetry on offer for this price. COMPATABILITY / IN's and OUT's++++++++++++ It also incorperates ...
  • Pros: Excellent sound quality, impressive functions, decent price !
  • Cons: The background light, if you don't like bright blue?

  • Excerpt: "I bought mine for £200 inc fitting. however now they are availible for little over £100 if you shop around the car mags, often with free speakers. The HU looks nice and works fine i am generally very pleased with it however... The blue display is very bright at night. you dont realise untill you flip the display down to put a cd in and the car gets a lot darker! the amplifier uses a mofset transistor to create the power. this is good, however ...
  • Pros: cheap, mp3 capability, high power output, remote control
  • Cons: Bright display, output can distort over half volume

  • Excerpt: "This was the only mp3 car cd player available with the dealer a year back ago. Now there are potential manufacturers selling various products of this kind. This player is good on the features side, but lacks on the sound quality. I bought sony's xplod speakers which never satisfied me upto the sound quality at high volumes I find in other manufacturer's car. Perhaps, its the problem with the speakers, not the head unit. Here is some detailed info ...
  • Pros: Ease of use, remote control,removable face plate .
  • Cons: lcd dims in daylight, distortions at high volume,no text scroll

  • Excerpt: "...bought it because it was Sony even tho mates advised that Sony weren’t all that good in the stereo market. They were wrong, ever so wrong on this count. Crisp & Clear – of course this will all depend on what you are sending it out through (Speaker quality etc) This beats any stereo I’ve owned before – and cost a lot less too. I quite like to port the majority to my rear speakers and have some thru the front and crank it up. ...
  • Pros: So much for your money, easy install, nice looks too .
  • Cons: I have no gripes really apart from it not coming with MP3 software for conversion which none do that I know of .
