Sony CDX-GT430U


$130.00 Released January, 2009

Product Shot 1 The Pros:LCD display design is easier to read, especially in sunlight, than many competitors' models. Aux input is a great feature at this price, can connect to any portable media easily. Playback fades in when the unit is powered on, effectively eliminating ever being surprised or shocked when starting car.

The Cons:Manufacturer's EQ presets have confusing names and it's hard to tell the differences between them. Remote control is not backlit.

 The Sony CDX GT430U head unit is a relatively inexpensive device that is compatible with all of Sony's latest audio technologies - a great thing for a consumer who wants to buy cheap now and add on to the capabilities later.
