Sony CDX-GT920U


$250.00 Released January, 2008

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Radio stations sound clear and vibrant, better than on an OEM stereo. Good information display for MP3s, shows artist, album, song, and more. A 2Gb USB thumb drive loads quickly, will be hearing music in seconds.

The Cons:Can't shut off faceplate warning beep when ignition turned off. Control knob is fairly stiff, easy to select something by accident. No simple one-push preset buttons for radio stations.

The Sony CDX-GT920U is a 4 channel 52 watt car audio receiver released by Sony in 2009. It has a front AUX input, a rear USB input, three preamp outputs, and the ability to add HD or Satellite radio control modules, giving users a lot of options for expanding the unit's head functionality.

Where to Buy

It has a very usable interface and menu structure to find songs.  It doesn't support the iPod's proprietary file format though, users will have to purchase a $50 cable for that. There is a built in amplifier that makes the sounds pretty loud, and sounds can be tweaked with the 3-band parametric equalizer and its seven preset curves. This piece competes with the 4 channel 50 watt Kenwood KDC-HD942U that has the same price.
