Excerpt: WHAT IS IT? A car stereo that is made by Sony. THE DESIGN I like the design of the stereo because it is lit up brightly and makes the dashboard of my car look attractive. The buttons on the front of the radio are very easy to understand and they are soft touch also and that makes them very responsive.
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.
Excerpt: This CD/mp3 deck was a birthday gift tyo myself back in 2004, however, it was stolen about a month later from my car in the mall's parking lot! (And if that was not enough, they got the deck, the remote, my 2 amplifiers and my CD pouch, which was in the car, but they left the box, which was still in the trunk!) Immediately, I must say that this was the one model which Sony convinced me of their superior Japanese technology.
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.
Excerpt: I have had this stereo in my car for over a year now, but I have probably not put more than 10 to 15 CD's into it during that time. Not because I dont have a large choice of music but simply because I can listen to 5 or more of my favourite albums on one CD. This easy to use player offers a wide range of features in the way of a graphic equalizer, pre-set equalizer, speaker surrond options and many more.
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.
Pros: MP3 CD's can hold a lot of music !
Cons: takes a while to read the CD when first switched on
Excerpt: This little head unit will knock your socks off! and I don't mean with distorted volume, but with the quality and clarity of the sound produced. And its not even started there. FEATURES+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ It has a drop down front panel to allow CD's to be inserted/removed with concealed eject button, and it is also removed for security, from this flipped down position by simply pushing it to the left and pulling away. Its quite simple to clip on too!
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.
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 about the product.
Pros: Ease of use, remote control,removable face plate .
Cons: lcd dims in daylight, distortions at high volume,no text scroll
