Not impressed

Nick from Fair oaks, CA, Sonic Electronix

  • Conclusion: Glitchy, and not customizable enough. It is user friendly, but that's not enough to make me happy. Would not recommend this product.

Does sound quality matter? Picture Quality?

Gint from Lafayette, CA, Sonic Electronix
21 April 2012
  • Conclusion: Yes, everything you read about the menu display is correct. It's way too slow. On the other hand, the sound is unbelievable and the video lives up to the Sony name. You won't find a better head unit. The sound is crystal clear, and it powers up my subwoofer with no distortion whatsoever. Try getting that kind of sound for under $800. EZ installation with all RCA connectors.

Good features but too slow

Rogan from Auckland, New Zealand, Sonic Electronix
1 December 2011
  • Conclusion: Experience level: car audio hobbyist for 25+ years. Have worked in car audio industry distributing high end car audio. As per the other reviews, this unit has a lot of features but is far too slow. Been using it for about 2 weeks now. BT has great clarity, probably the best BT unit I have used (but I haven't owned many BT units). Screen resolution is good and paired with an Alpine reversing camera it works very well.

Unusable

Steven from Clinton Twp, MI, Sonic Electronix
9 August 2011
  • Conclusion: On paper, this system has all the features I wanted, but in execution, this thing is terrible. The lag on the system makes it unusable. In a car, such a lag is just unsafe. I don’t have time to push a button and stare at my head unit to make sure it’s doing what I just told it to. Originally out of the box, the touch screen was even worse because it wasn’t calibrated. After calibrating, it was still bad.

SO so and slow...

Dominique from Edmonton, AB, Canada, Sonic Electronix
30 July 2011
  • Conclusion: For the enthusiast, the HU is slow. Mine always is in the off mode when you shut the vehicle off and then turn on the ignition again. I don't think I'm impress with this unit. Functionality is slow and there's a slight delay in every operation function you execute. Bluetooth works good. Movies are good too. iPod operation is slow to track and execute.

Ipod Integration is slow

Chris from Los Angeles, CA, Sonic Electronix
28 July 2011
  • Conclusion: I've had this unit for about a month now. The overall functionality of the unit is good. However, as the other poster has noted, the unit is painfully slow, especially the iPod integration. I really want to like it but cannot get over the slowness. If Sony does not address the issue I'm going to pull it from my system. As it stands, the XAV72-BT is the achilles heel of my system.

Slow!!!!

Lekan from Edmonton, AB, Canada, Sonic Electronix
29 June 2011
  • Conclusion: Unit had all the features i was looking for. 6-channel 4V output, Bluetooth, Time Alignment but all those features are useless if it takes 5 seconds to process every request. Compared to touchscreens from Kenwood and the likes, this HU is definitely not ready for mass production. Really surprised Sony's Quality Control didnt notice the amount of lag in this HU or maybe it was just the unit I received that was too slow but I will not be giving Sony a second chance.
