It's nice when you can plug your iPod® into your car stereo and play all your tunes on the road, but where do you keep your player when you're driving? Sony's DSX-S310BTX receiver solves this dilemma with its innovative Tune Tray. It lets you connect your iPod and store it inside the stereo, keeping it secure and charged while you drive.
Built-in iPod controls
With your iPod safely stowed, you can access your music library using the stereo's controls. Sony's Quick-BrowZer™ lets you search by artist, album, genre, song, or playlist. You can also fly through your library with Jump Mode, which lets you skip around in 10% increments. An additional USB input on the front panel lets you connect your iPhone® or another USB device.
Enjoy PANDORA® Internet radio streaming via Bluetooth
Built-in Bluetooth lets you talk hands-free, but it also lets you stream music from a compatible device. You can even control your Android™ or Blackberry™ smartphone's PANDORA® app right from the stereo while streaming. iPhone users can control PANDORA® while connected to the front-panel USB input.
Bright, 4-line display
Whether you're making a hands-free call, streaming a PANDORA® station, or listening to your iPod, Sony's 4-line Organic Electro-Luminescent (OEL) display shows you plenty of info. You can also choose between red and blue button illumination.
Fine-tune your sound
Sony's Advanced Sound Engine lets you tailor your sound to match your system and taste. You can set the timing of your speakers for your listening position, so you're always sitting in the sweet spot. Low- and high-pass filters let you block frequencies your speakers can't handle, helping them run more efficiently. Use the Rear Bass Enhancer to dial in more bottom end to fill out your sound, and tweak the overall tone with a robust, 7-band parametric equalizer.
