Complicated.

Hector Orrego Silva "mariamarte", Amazon

  • Summary: The radio is Ok. The problem is in it's complexity. It's very hard to use and imposible while driving. The ipod feature is great, but limits the flexibility of the ipod in shuffle mode. Would not buy it again.

Worked well when new, down hill after that.

Mark L Thompson, Amazon
30 January 2014
  • Summary: Pros: 1) It does work good most of the time, but I think that it has finally reached a point of replacement. This is due to a bad switch in the front panel. Cons: 1) Needs to be reset every 3-6 months. Start to change randomly, station, presets, finally stops responding to the controls. Sometime disconnecting the battery is the only solution. 2) After about a year and a half the fan (yes there is one) is very noise when it first starts up in cold weather.

No the best option for a stereo.

Mario Alvarado G "Mario Alvarado", Amazon
13 December 2013
  • Summary: Well... Let's start saying that the stereo looks good on the car. The lights and sound is excellent but it has a terrible issue when you insert a MP3 device inside. Why?: After an hour and a half playing an Ipod or Nano into the stereo they overheats and the MP3 device turn off. The stereo's power supply turns very hot and the device does not support the high temperatures inside.

Sony DSXS100 Digital Media Receiver

  • Summary: Gave this unit a 2 star rating because I only got it due to it having the tune dock for the ipod and after the 3rd time use it no longer reads my ipod. All other operations function fine except the ipod interface.

No good for MP3s

atkoj, Amazon
13 January 2014
  • Summary: Great concept by Sony, exactly what I was looking for, with a tray to neatly hide away any MP3 containing device inside the unit. Unfortunately, very poorly executed. For example, the unit only supports reading the first 128 folders on a device - which for me means that I can only play back bands with names beginning with "A". And this isn't just me being a dope, Sony have confirmed this is "by design".

Wouldn't buy another

Mick, Car Audio Centre

  • Excerpt: The stereo was great initially, and it is a good and innovative idea. Unfortunately after 6 months the contacts in the "face off" part have oxidised and the stereo controls only work intermittently. A good stereo ruined by cheap componentry I'm afraid.

An Average Product

Blaq Surfer, Amazon
9 July 2012
  • Summary: First of all, the idea that it uses just an iPod tray was a bit of a surprise. However, I've been playing this with my iPhone and suddenly, about a month after installation, the USB option stops working (the radio no longer senses USB devices when connected). Also discovered rather disturbingly that after playing from my Auxilliary device for a while, the mode switches on its own from Auxilliary to FM.
