Go digital without going broke

Ditching the discs and going digital doesn't have to break the bank. Sony's DSX-A40UI digital media receiver offers an impressive list of features for its price range, along with plenty of connections for all your devices.

Everything you need

Bells and whistles are nice, but you don't necessarily need them to go all-digital in your car. The DSX-A40UI has all the basics covered, starting with a sleek-looking removable faceplate that also offers the functionality you need to enjoy your digital music library.

A handy USB port gives you lots of options for enjoying your digital music. Plug in a flash drive that you've loaded up with music, or connect your iPod®, iPhone®, or Android™ to listen to music and charge the device. You'll be able to use the receiver's controls to search through your music, and Sony's Quick-BrowZer® feature makes it easy to find music by artist, album, genre, song or playlist. You can also connect a satellite radio tuner or a portable music player to the front auxiliary input.

Adjust and expand

The built-in amp ensures that your music will come through loud and clear, even when you're really cranking it up. If you're the kind of person who likes to fiddle with the settings to suit your exact tastes, you'll be surprised at how much adjustability you get with the DSX-A40UI's 3-band equalizer. If you're thinking about adding an amplifier in the future, you'll find a set of 2-volt preamp outputs on the back panel.

Sony DSX-A40UI Digital Media Receiver

This receiver offers a simple control panel with USB and auxiliary inputs.

Complete controls

Whether you're listening to digital music or your favorite AM/FM radio station, you'll be able to see what's playing on the single-line LCD display, which shows you track info, station ID and a clock. The faceplate's red button illumination adds a touch of style. You also get a handy remote control that lets your passengers play DJ while you drive.

Want to keep your car's steering wheel audio controls?

In most cars, you'll need an adapter to retain those controls with this car stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and radio, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. You'll see the adapters that work with your vehicle when you add this receiver to your cart.

iPod/smartphone note: If you're going to use your iPod or smartphone with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for compatibility information.

Ordered for my daughter and she installed it herself with instructions and a little instruction from me. Very satisfied.

    It was the cheapest headunit I could find by a brand I trusted so I wasn't expecting much and it has delivered that. The sound quality is eh, the controls are not intuitive, and the settings are limited. If I hadn't thrown out the box in my haste to install it, I would've returned it. All in all its cheap but it works.

    Pros: Great radio reception

    Cons: Usb doesn't work with Bluetooth adapter

    Had enough of my 20 yr old OE radio/cassette unit. This unit brought me up to date without having to buy an up to date new truck! Have Sony products throughout the house and in my other vehicle. Never had one fail. Installed easily and sounds great.

    Pros: Screen bright enough for my aging eyes. Great sound. Good value considering what the unit delivers

    Cons: Operating manual short on instructions.

    This radio is a great bang for your buck. I bought this unit to replace a factory stereo and to add an aux input to the vehicle. I ended up using the USB input because it works just as well and also charges my iPhone!

    Pros: Great value for the cost. Easy installation.

    Cons: Build quality is what you'd expect from an aftermarket radio at this price. Buttons don't fit quite snug in their housing and the presses have a very plastic-y click to them.

    I've always been a fan of Sony head units, and this one does the job well. All features are easy to use and navigating the menus is extremely user friendly. Sound quality and overall fit/finish look great.

    Pros: Doesn't look like a spaceship. Simple design.

    Cons: I can see the usb/aux flap being the weak point. I don't know how long it will last, but it appears to be the only possible problem with the unit.

    I honestly have to say this radio is awsome, it doesn't play CD's but who plays CD's nowadays I always listen to my IPod. Good quality sound more like great, easy to install, perfect fit I don't regret buying it and neither should you, highly recommend bang for your buck.

    Pros: Everything about the stereo is awsome I would definitely buy another one if this one went out.

    Cons: Free accessories to help ease the installation, detailed instructions, free Pandora. The word here is Freeee!! Other than that I am a happy camper highly recommend it. Plus 3 day shipping icing on the cake.

    Installed very easily and sound quality is good. Nice integration with iPod and iPhone 5 - displays artist/song etc. Does not have an off switch, so if you do not want to use it, you have to select a setting - such as AUX - that doesn't have anything attached.

    Pros: Easy to use and install. Nice display

    Cons: No off switch

    Overall very good deal because of price. Has great sound quality at price point. I am disappointed in the layout and ease of use. When you reach for some buttons you end up accidentally hitting others and this can mess up settings. But for price I would buy this again.

    Pros: Great price, easy to install. Radio lighting is about right at night - just enough to see but not blind you or have glare in the dark.

    Cons: Poor button layout. Hard to learn how to work.

    Great upgrade!

    This was the first install I've done by myself so I had to look everything up, once it was all put in and set up this head unit looked amazing in my jeep. Sounded great too paired with my amp. I bet it would sound a whole lot better with new speakers, but with a stock setup and stock amplifier it's a great combo! Can't go wrong at this price! The quality of it was pretty good too! It's a little heavier than expected but it's very quality material.

    Pros: Looks great, sounds good, easy to install if you have knowledge. Works with factory setup

    Cons: A little complicated at first. Had trouble wiring it on my own but it's easy if you know what to do!

    I needed a replacement for my factory radio after 16 years of use. I did not want to dump a huge amount of money into an old pick-up so I chose the Sony DSX-A40UI. Installation was straight forward, clean finished appearance when installation was complete, and sounds as good as the factory radio. Great inexpensive replacement!

    Pros: Inexpensive, easy install, good sound.

    Cons: Owners manual does not fully explain the options available on the radio or what certain features do/don't do.

    Installed in 2006 Chevy Silverado Quad Cab. Doesn't work with Android 6.0. Radio quality is worse than stock. Installation was simple, could have been easier with better instructions. I brought to listen to music through my phone and it has accomplished that with very good sound quality, gave sound quality a 4 star due to radio static.

    Pros: Aux in

    Cons: radio static, not compatible with android 6.0

    Pros: Perfect fit with factory side mounting brackets.Great sound and features.Nice remote control and detachable face plate.

    I moved up from another Sony deck because I needed the USB input. All of my music is on my iphone so I didn't need a CD player in the car. When you press "source" on this deck you have 3 options, Tuner, Aux and USB. I love that. No skipping through Pandora or bluetooth or all that stuff I don't use. Also if you tweak the EQ and loudness this radio sounds really great. I could not be happier with this choice and the Crutchfield price and customer support.

    Pros: Simplicity, sound quality and price.

    Cons: only one color for buttons. Red. Everything else is great.

    I wanted an inexpensive stereo to replace the original in my 11 year old Scion XA and this radio fit the bill nicely. What surprised me most of all is how easy and quick it was to install, I haven't installed a car radio in 25 years and I still remember how much work had to be done to fit the radio back then, now with the installation kit that Crutchfield sent with the radio, you just removed the dash panels, unscrewed the old radio and installed the new one with the mounting kit and in 20 mins. it was playing.

    Pros: Great sound for the price, installation was painless and looks factory.

    Cons: None really, but now I think I should have paid a little more and gotten a radio with Blue tooth just for the novelty.

    Great stereo for the money.

    Replaced old Sony AM/FM CD stereo with this one. Everything I needed for installation in my vehicle was included. Installation was easy and went without a hitch. The sound is great and you can customize it with the equalizer function. Have the owner's manual with you while you are setting everything and setup is a breeze. I like the fact that I can download CD's onto flash drive and stick it into my pocket and go. I used that function on a 4 hour trip and had loaded 45 CD's onto an 8G flash drive and it played perfectly; and it beats trying to find radio stations while you're driving.

    Pros: Plays flash drive, can plug in my phone, or mp3 player. Ease of installation, sound, ease of use.

    Cons: I don't have any.

    I installed my radio the other day on my 2004 Kia Optima. Crutchfield made sure that the radio fit into my car, and a quick live chat with an associate helped me find an additional plastic housing for the radio for my car. He was also able to confirm that I didn't need to do any soddering, which was important given my low level of mechanical knowledge. If you are looking for an inexpensive but solidly made, great sounding, and easy to use radio, I would go with this Sony. All I wanted was a stereo with USB and an audio jack to replace my old stereo, which only had a CD player. The sound quality is extremely noticeable over the stock unit. Make Sure you connect the blue and white wires for "amplified sound" (which I assume most vehicles have) otherwise the sound only comes out of the rear speakers. Also make sure that all of the copper wiring is twisted together and the little plastic containers cover all of the exposed wire. I also recommend watching some how-to videos online to acquaint yourself with unplugging the car battery, removing the interior trim, and unplugging the other electrical units during the stereo swap. Be gentle with the plastic--on my Kia, I had to remove the entire center console including the horizontal part surrounding the hand break and gear shifter in addition to the vertical part surrounding the radio, vents, etc.

    Pros: - Great value for money - Great solution to replace a stereo without an audio jack or USB input - Simultaneously cool and congenial to the style of even my 2004 car

    Cons: - Only 4 radio presets (but 3 FM and 2 AM settings) - Lacks Bluetooth

    Bought this radio as a replacement for the old Blaupunkt in My 87 BMW 528e its a solid radio with media capabilities I was not interested in a CD player since I have gone digital. I like the fact that it has iPhone Control as well a USB slot. 45 Watts are more than adequate for my needs and the unit clean. Installation was a breeze with ever thing needed in the box. I bought the installation kit due to the BWM having floating ground system similar to Ford but in the end I decided to just new wiring to the speakers and will be returning the unused hardware. I guess you could call me a fan of Sony products since most of my home electronics is of the Sony brand. But the reason for this has been the quality and features that they put into their products. I have been happy with their performance over the years and they are my go to brand. Because this unit does not have a CD player the price point is very affordable and delivers without compromise.

    Pros: Great product from a well established brand with excellent performance and build quality at an affordable price. What more could you ask for?

    Cons: None to date.

    We wanted the Sony brand name for reputation and wanted the USB access port for easy connect to our Apple products. This receiver features both. We don't play CD's any more so not having a CD player is no issues for us. It is simple to set up and use, not overly complicated and not overly packed with other features that we will never use. I'd say this is an awesome receiver for the price and I was surprised how great is sounds.

    Pros: Easy to install, small body which takes up less space in dash. Nice color, matches the red exterior of our vehicle. USB port to play through and this port also charges the phone so no additional plug-in chargers into cigarette lighter sockets are needed. Allows us to play through his Apple i-phone, so we don't need one of those cheap radio frequency transmitter devices that you have to use otherwise.

    Cons: Only has four pre-set buttons per channel bank, so you can set 4 stations on FM1, then four more on FM2, etc. This makes it necessary to switch from FM1 to FM2 to pick more than 4 pre-set stations. This is only a problem if more than one person drives the car.

    My boyfriend bought me this stereo for my Oldsmobile Alero beacuse my factory stereo was on its last leg. I have very few modern features in my '04 so this was a huge upgrade for me! I was afraid I wouldn't like the red color as the rest of the lights on my center and dash are greenish but the red on this stereo is very subtle and not bright. You can see it great during the day but it also has a dimmer so you can turn it down at night, if needed. I love the sound quality. I also was under the impression that the clock would only display for a few seconds before changing back. But I was pleased to discover that if you click the display button, the clock will stay on for as long as you please. I am able to save 12 preset stations which is way more than I need. I can VERY easily plug up my phone via auxillary or USB and listen to music. I also love the little door that closes over the ports. The stereo looks great in my car. I was worried it'd look a bit odd in my old car but it looks like it belongs there. I love having the little slot of space underneath too, to hold my phone. The install was so simple. My boyfriend did it, but I watched and it was a breeze. Everything hooked up easily with no issues along the way. And it worked on the very first try. Overall I am beyond satisfied. It looks great, sounds great, is easy to use and is everything I neeed. I am very pleased with it.

    Pros: Easy to install, even with no electrical background. Looks natural. Sounds great. Lights are not distracting. Dimmer included. Clock stays on for as long as I want. Easy access to AUX and USB. Lots of preset options. Great price.

    Cons: I only wish I could change the button illumination color from red. But for this price, I don't expect to have that much customization. And, the red is subtle and not overwhelming.

    I was a little worried about not having a CD player but then I remembered it's 2015 and I haven't bought a CD in years. One USB cord to charge my iPhone and to play and control the music. Brilliant. After connecting the wiring harness, installation in my Dodge Stratus took no longer than five minutes and the fit was perfect. I was worried it would stick out like an obvious aftermarket stereo but I couldn't be happier and the price was ridiculously inexpensive for the quality. Would reccomend.

    Pros:

    Cons:

    Excellent Value

    The radio was very easy to install with the appropriate Metra harness for my F150 and doesn't look too bad in the dash. The overall quality of the device is excellent for its price point and beats devices twice its cost. The FM sensitivity of the unit is nice. The major downside is the USB connection is essentially worthless for any Android device of the last couple years since MSC is a terrible connection method for phones and hasn't been used since Gingerbread Android. So if you have an Android device you are likely stuck with the Aux input. The sound quality of the unit is good, but would likely be better if I replaced the factory speakers.

    Pros: 1. Nice Build quality 2. Good sound 3. Good FM sensitivity 4. Easy installation

    Cons: 1. Doesn't charge higher powered smartphones well. 2. Severely outdated USB connection method (MSC) which will only work with flash drives or old Android devices.

    Another great product from Crutchfield

    Only took a couple hours to have it up and running since the old unit was already removed. Did the necessary wiring, except for speakers, on my desk then to the garage to complete the installation. Radio setup went quickly, too. Didn't take long at all to have my favorite stations memorized and enjoy some of my digitized '50s and '60s tunes on a 32Gb USB thumb drive.

    Pros: 1. Easy to install. 2. Lots of options and features 3. Great sound. 4. Super fast delivery and excellent service.

    Cons: None.

    This receiver is a great replacement or OEM alternative. My car's OEM radio was removed by a previous owner along with the amp and all the wiring, so I chose to just install this receiver since the color matches and it looks era specific. I was glad to find a plain looking receiver such as this. Wish it had bluetooth...

    Pros: no CD Player, looks old

    Cons: no bluetooth
