This ensures that the car sound different colors and light intensities automatically adjusts to day and night. To change that's on the menu, see below.
SOUND AND INITIAL:
So use after installation equal the front panel, insert a CD and listen - Everything sounds clean, clear and pure.
A good D / A converter chip has chosen here, so off to the fine-tuning Sony.
There, the user expects certainly the familiar system of treble, bass, balance and fading. There also are a lot better but there the 10-band equalizer presets, the manual 10-band equalizer, AAV sound improvements, Truesound position calculation and the ability to control only as a bass speaker rear speaker selectable per filter! Sure, Loudness is offered for silent listener, love the soothing, full bass!
If during installation, the possibly existing amplifier or subwoofer to be clamped, details can also be set here.
Conclusion here at the sound: above average, thanks to filters, digital sound enhancement and acoustic programs no wishes remain unfulfilled.
The start was good on CD, so now the radio tuner just by key switch "SOURCE" (source) and then by "SEEK" button (search) find suitable transmitter and by a long press on the preset buttons 1-6 to preset stations. Who wants to save several radio stations since no problem has been able to more memory banks by pressing a button on the "Browse" button to select and occupied. With this button you come also to active short and medium wave.
By the way: For each preset station can separately be selected and saved whether this transmitter TA (Traffic Announcement, ie traffic) is by giving and possibly interrupts other sources for it. The same applies to the AF operation (search alterative frequency), if the reception is poor. This setting can cause large transmitter to read local time news of another city in the state / reception area, as originally set. Does not matter because a key is pressed on the station button jumps to the stored frequency even if they then creaks slightly.
By the way knarzen: The receiver from the radio is great, many transmitters come as clear and in stereo from the speakers when you lived next to the transmission mast TOP! Lauter gehts the large knob and for the next source back to "SOURCE" This may AUX, USB, BT phone or BT Audio be.
Connected USB sticks can also be ransacked by "SEEK" button, or a USB connected iPhone or iPod! But that makes the Apple software more comfortable or halt the SONY REMOTE APP. With this is also really good. There in the app will of course can be selected from the iPhone from any source, EQ modified settings and volume up, volume, mute, etc. are comfortably controlled.
Next, we go to BT Audio and BT telephone.
For non-iPhone USER just go to the menu, select BT PAIRING, pair your smartphone, and there you go. Apple users can create a "LIVE PAIRING" can be carried out when the iPhone is connected via cable then users need not even go into the Bluetooth menu of the iPhone - awesome! Oh, if iPhone 3/4/5 all versions run 1A.
Android smartphone with NFC chip is a simple touch of NFC tags is enough on the large volume of the selector wheel is ready to connect.
Who now still not enough hanky on the radio, may like to make his first call if initiated by telephone, by comfortable Voice Dial or by direct input on the radio, does not matter. Go all three options and the callee understands every word loud and clear we Him by the way too!
What strikes us, even missing the small details. The time might be adjusted or times but the dazzling DEMO MODE OFF, the flash can be the unit as a post-80's Disco in rainbow colors and big letters and digital indicators. So there changed by MENU button on the "Display" option, select the soft amber-orange / yellow or red but the blue or green or ?!
Who the default colors are not enough, the beautiful color changing preset "SUNSET" "OCEAN", "forest" or "may" or simply use his favorite color in the "rainbow set CUSTOM COLOR" menu. Each of the 3 LED colors can be selected in 32 steps.
In the Custom menu can be stored and activated the dimmer or the various shades of the DAY / NIGHT mode, and whether the radio menu can be read in the selected color, or in a cool white.
This Sony car radio has absolutely convinced me. Just a car radio in the format for 1 single DIN slot, which combines the worlds of sound and demanded connectivity USB, CD, RADIO, AUX and with BLUETOOTH AUDIO BLUETOOTH HANDSFREE and an app for iPhone and Android, is a minor sensation!
Sonically Top, a multimedia all-rounder and for drivers with Telefonitis who've been looking for a suitable radio for interior lighting a HIT is why full marks and a very strong buy recommendation!
