Summary: For the price this Sony Reciever is top of the line. I bought mine a few months ago because I needed a new stereo for my Jeep and I was browsing around and saw this one. I love the fact that it has bluetooth and a built in mic for handsfree calling.
Summary: I had this radio installed about 2 weeks ago. It sounds good, no real complaints. you have to read the manual a little bit to get the hang of setting the stations, clock etc. I dont really use the blue tooth.
Summary: It seems like a decent unit, the sound is OK and the controls are not horrible. there are some quirks in the features though. the display dim is controlled from the system its self, there is no wire connected to the head lights or the dash dimmer switch.
Summary: This receiver has a very disappointing Bluetooth telephone connection. People on the other end of the line cannot understand the conversation clearly. It is not possible to have a reasonable conversation through this radio.
Summary: I've really enjoyed this stereo. It makes life very easy, jump in the car and the phone is connected to the stereo. I don't have to worry about recharging any batteries or connecting any wires to my phone.
Summary: Replaced OEM headunit in a 1994 BMW 325i. Unit fit perfectly out of the box. When first installed, radio had sound but CD did not. Contacted SONY customer support website and found correct solution: switch AMP REM and ANT REM wires. Sound quality is excellent with factory speakers.
pretty blue lights, easy to use, bluetooth phone is crappy

Summary: i wanted an easy-to-use-while-driving new stereo, and bluetooth to match my old samsung phone. * i really like the blue lights, and it's easy to use while driving. the lights are on the main buttons, and each push button for tuner button.
Great product for the price and includes Bluetooth

Summary: I got this item refurbished by Sony for about $62. So far, it works as expected. I have the LG VX8700 from Verizon and called up people using the Bluetooth. No one complained about the sound. I also tested the MP3 and WMA capability and it plays almost all my files including Chinese songs.
Summary: I purchased this because I wanted a stereo with built in bluetooth for handsfree phone calls. I could not make or receive any calls while in my car because the microphone barely worked. Anyone I talked to reported hearing lots of background noise and they could barely hear me at all.
Summary: Everything works great on this unit except for the main feature. I bought the unit from Crutchfield and the the people I called could barely hear me. Crutchfield replaced the unit and I had the same identical problem.
