This digital media receiver will not play CDs. If you want to play CDs in your vehicle, we offer a wide selection of CD receivers.
Here's a new twist on using your iPod® in the car. Sony's DSX-S100 digital media receiver features a special internal Tune Tray compartment that holds your iPod or Sony Walkman MP3 player. Fold down the face, plug your player into the Tune Tray via the USB connection, and then close it up inside the receiver safely out of sight, but fully operational from the receiver's controls.
Find your songs fast
A neat trick like a hideaway iPod compartment isn't much use if the controls aren't up to speed. No worries here this Sony includes a set of powerful search controls, so finding your favorite music files is a snap. You can search through hundreds of tracks quickly and easily with Quick-BrowZer, or use Zappin to listen to short clips from your music while searching.
Powerful audio performance
The DSX-S100 boasts some serious sonic tools. A premium 24-bit digital-to-analog converter brings out the best in your music, and the built-in amplifier offers impressive muscle. The EQ3 Stage 2 3-band parametric EQ lets you target the precise high, midrange, and low frequencies you want to adjust, while the Dynamic Soundstage Organizer feature "raises" the soundstage so your music sounds more immediate and lively. Digital Music Plus Advanced enhancer technology improves detail and high frequency sound reproduction from compressed audio.
Add on and enjoy
For more musical choices, you can add an optional HD Radio or satellite radio tuner to the DSX-S100. Ramp up the sound by connecting external amps to the two pairs of high-voltage preamp outputs.
Want to keep your car's steering wheel audio controls?
In most vehicles, you can use an adapter to connect your vehicle's steering wheel controls to this stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and the receiver, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. Check the "Accessories" tab for compatible adapters.
