Sony Xplod CDX-GT540UI
Released September, 2009
The Pros:A number of file browsing options makes large collections easier to navigate. Compressed audio restoration is very good, fills out lost sounds for near-CD quality. FM tuner displays station and track information if available.
The Cons:Re-attaching the faceplate is tricky, takes up to 20 seconds even with lots of practice. User interface takes some getting used to, confusing at first - many buttons with multiple functions. The manual is confusing and poorly written.

It improves from the CDX-GT440U by adding iPod and Satellite/HD radio compatibility, as well as support for AAC iTune files. Unlike its predecessor, however, the CDX-GT540UI does not host a detachable faceplate, although it does feature selectable preouts for an external amp or subwoofer, RDS data broadcast information, and ultra-fast song searching and selecting via a Quick-BrowZer.
