DSX-S210X Has Issues
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Ease of Use
Satellite radio broken out of the box. My Sony XT-XM1 sat tuner wasnt recognized. I was replacing my old Sony receiver because the volume quite working. I bought this unit, plugged it in and the receiver didnt recognize the sat tuner, also tried a Sirius tuner and same problem. I liked the ability to have my music collection on a usb stick and this sort of works. Sometimes it forgets where it left off when I turn the car off. When I return it will start playing the first album from the beginning. The rotary knob seems flimsy and isnt the easiest to use when driving. The remote luckily can be used to do most things. Dont try searching your music collection while driving. The sound adjustments are good and it sounds really good as well. ** Sony support isnt the greatest. The person on the other end obviously didnt know anything about car radios and they are having me send this almost new unit back to their repair center at my cost and said it would be 7-10 days before another unit would be sent back out. This is over Crutchfield's 60 day warranty otherwise I would send this back to them. Not very pleased with this situation.
Pros: Good sound Having music collection accessible via USB stick is a great feature. Great Price for the features. Dont have to cart around CD collection in car.
Cons: Satellite radio didnt work out of the box and appears the unit is defective. Receiver sometimes forgets what song its on when you turn your car off and return again. (Using usb stick). Sony Support is mediocre, No advanced exchange for defective unit in warranty. 30 Minutes on the phone for them to finally give me return authorization to repair facility at my cost.
