Our take on the Sony CDX-GT270MP

Sony

Why replace your factory radio?

Two good reasons - sound quality and cool features. A new car stereo offers power that's superior to most factory radios, along with more sophisticated tone controls. And most car stereos offer built-in or optional features that add safety and fun to life in your car, including inputs for your iPod or MP3 player, Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free cell phone calls, satellite radio or HD Radio reception, and connections for building an audio system in your car.

More than a pretty face

Sony's CDX-GT270MP CD receiver combines a user-friendly front-panel design with some nice options that'll keep you entertained. Designed with a sleek face that's detachable for security, this receiver features red button illumination that makes for maximum visibility at night. But this puppy is more than just a pretty face.

This Sony features a user-friendly control panel, including preset buttons and an auxiliary input.

Plenty of bang for your buck

Sony's provided a built-in 3-band equalizer so you can tweak the bass, midrange, and treble to get your music sounding just right. If you've got a sub in your car, you can use the receiver's high-pass filter to trim the low bass out of your speakers, so the built-in amp can rock louder without distortion. Sony's proud of their Digital Clarity tuner that reduces interference and increases separation for excellent AM/FM reception. You can play your storebought CDs or discs loaded with MP3/WMA music, and the front auxiliary input makes it easy to jam out with just about any portable device. Sony includes a wireless card remote so you can control all this entertainment.

Want to keep your car's steering wheel audio controls?
In most vehicles, you can an adapter (not included) to connect your vehicle's steering wheel controls to this Sony stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and the Sony, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls.

    Makes my factory speakers sound a lot better than the Ford factory receiver, and I like that it will play recorded cd's.
    Pros:
    Sounds great. Easy to setup. customer service was excellent and knew just what to do on install. I was describing things like "that square plastic thing" and they handled it like pro's every time. Patiently walked me thru the steps and made the experience enjoyable and actually fun.
    Cons:
    Wife got mad at me for stealing her cd's, but they sounded so good!

    Great Product - Great Sound!

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    For the price this radio was a no brainer. I was looking for a simple radio to replace my broken stock radio, something that had an Aux in and decent sound. This radio totally delivers! It's really easy to use and there are a lot of sound options for getting it to sound just right in your car. Installation was a snap with the proper accessories. The radio might not turn heads as it is a basic functional radio, but for me it was perfect.
    Pros:
    Easy to use and Install, great sound and aux in port for my phone/ipod. Great sound options and pleanty of presets.
    Cons:
    None

    Seems to be a good unit. I have not used it much as it's July and I put it in an ice fishing house. Wish it had individual controls for base/treble like car radios. Will know more come December. Had to "rebend the tabs" to get it to snap into the adapter . Overall a good buy for the price.
    Pros:
    Plenty of power
    Cons:
    Adapter sleeve had to be modified to get unit to snap into place.

    Mom's replacement stereo

    Written By Luke, Glens Falls, NY on Tuesday, July 22, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    Excellent value for the price. I received everything I needed for my mom's '02 Saturn SL1 . 3 band EQ, MP3 compatible, front AUX. She didn't care about the preamps, no USB or more EQ bands. She just needed a basic stereo to play CDs and radio stations clear. This Sony does that very well. Stations come in much better than the OEM CD player. The sound quality is much improved as well. Even with the stock coaxial speakers, it sounds very good. I am impressed also at its ease of use. It didn't take long to get using it habitually. Satisfied with purchase and Sony products. PS, Crutchfield's service is top notch!

    This radio/CD combination was exactly what I needed when replacing the original radio in my 2000 Jeep Wrangler. The instruction list provided by Crutchfield made installation a snap, even for a bonehead like me.I also accidentally broke a piece of the plastic face plate, and Crutchfield sent me a new one within a day at no extra charge.I can't speak highly enough of their customer service.
    Pros:

    Sony does a good job. Easy to use. Plain and simple.
    Cons:
    Not really any if you're going for the basic.

    Sony CDX-GT270MP Review

    Written By mithode, Bowling Green, Ohio on Thursday, March 27, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I bought this because it was a Sony product. As such, the build quality seems to be there. I bought it ONLY because I wanted an input for my IPod. It fits perfectly in a 1998 Honda CR-V, ie it fits in the same location as the factory radio without need for the "special" instal kit recommended by Crutchfield . I was also able to retain the original little bin compartment under the radio. Having said that, you have to be clever about mounting the original bin under the new Sony radio. It takes some fiddling to make the original bin clips fit into some holes on the Sony radio. It is easy to do. But SHAME on Crutchfield for not recommending a mating plug. The male power plug that comes with the radio just has loose wires on it. You would have to cut wires on the ORIGINAL female plug and wire it to the Sony male plug....... all while sitting inside you car working through your dashboard. I found a female plug on-line and wired the Sony male plug to it. PS. find the YouTube video on how to take a CR-V dashboard apart, that save lots of time. On to the disappointment. The radio interface is clumsy. My biggest peeve is how the SETUP is tied to the volume. If you press the volume button, it goes into setup mode, then as you turn the knob all the parameters scroll instead of changing the volume. How frequent do you need to change the radio sound, etc? Also, the radio beeps when you shut the car off....to remind you to remove the faceplate. Drive me nuts and you can't turn it off.
    Pros:
    Seems like Sony quality, I can pull in more stations.
    Cons:
    Poorly designed user interface. I wish it had a knob for changing stations. Really, coolness factor for a car radio? Just give me one that easy to work with.

    Interesting Saturday Afternoon

    Written By Joe in Shaker Hts, Shaker Hts OH on Monday, February 17, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    My son and I spent Saturday afternoon on this project. The instructions for the disassembly of my 2004 Honda Civic dashboard were pretty straight forward as were the instructions for assembling the adapter plug. Reassembly instructions could have been clearer. Rudy in support was awesome! The unit sounds great!
    Pros:
    The Sony unit beats the heck out of a replacement Honda radio plus $250 for installation. Great telephone support at 4:00 PM on Saturday afternoon. Sound quality equal to or better than the OEM unit.
    Cons:
    The antenna connection was on the opposite side of where it was on the original radio and was too short to reach the socket on the new unit. We went to another retailer for an extension cable.

    Reasonable price, works better than factory

    Written By RebeccaS, Montgomery, AL on Saturday, December 28, 2013
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    Replaced the factory radio in my 2000 VW Beetle with this Sony. I was able to install it myself, and it works great. I was disappointed with the instructions, though - they were frustratingly vague, and the install took me most of a day. I started with the parts list; first thing: I need a Torx T15 screwdriver. An unexpected trip to the store. 3 or 4 pages later, I need a wire stripper and crimping caps. Those weren't even on the parts list! So yet another trip to the store. The hardest step didn't have any tips or instructions at all: how to fit 2 new adapters, 14 extra lengths of wire, and 11 crimp caps into the already too-tight space behind the receiver under the dash. I had to call in my husband for the equivalent of sitting on the suitcase lid to get it jammed shut. Frustrating, as I wanted to do the whole install myself!
    Pros:
    Works
    Cons:
    Vague instructions, not all needed tools are listed up front.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I installed this SONY to replace a BLAUPUNKT that I purchased from Crutchfield ten years ago. The SONY installation was easy because of the Crutchfield conversion kit that was already installed in my 1985 Mercedes. The SONY operates wonderfully and gets better as I learn more about the built-in features.
    Pros:
    Ease of installation. Great price (better than Amazon). Tech support from Crutchfield is always the best.
    Cons:
    I find the bright red lighting on the controls to be a bit annoying and too flashy for me.

    I am very pleased with my purchase of the Sony CDX-GT270MP to be installed into my wife's 2007 Ford Taurus. The sound quality is outstanding. Really there is no comparison between the Sony and the factory stereo. It definitely makes our drives more enjoyable knowing that we can change from tuner to CD to Aux modes with a push of a button. We are still getting used to all of the features and functions of the Sony, but overall am very pleased with the product. Thank you very much!!

    I've had no problems with this head unit. Had it for about a month now. Easy to use and looks pretty cool.

    I see people saying that you can't get rid of the "scrolling messages" and that its "too bright." Both of that is nonsense. You can turn the scrolling messages off and you can dim the lights on the HU. If you can't figure something out... read the manual. I didn't have to read it because its very easy to use.

    I used this stereo to replace my factory stereo in my 2005 honda civic. So far its given me no real issues.. however I'd recommend reading the user guide before using the stereo, especially when changing the sound settings. Some of the settings lingo/accessibility is difficult to understand and use. The sound quality isn't always superb, but that's probably due to the speakers in my car. Either way its lightyears better then my factory stereo (plays mp3 cds/ipod dock) and it was cost efficient!

    Top Notch Product

    Written By Phil, Fresno, CA on Tuesday, July 09, 2013
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    Excellent product for the price. Easy to install; took about one hour. Connected well to On Star. Both receiver and CD perform in an excellent manner. This was a replacement for a factory unit that would have cost over $800 to replace. Haven't used the Aux jack as yet, trusting it will perform as does the rest of the unit.
    Pros:
    Great price for the equipment provided. Good sound (not great sound) , easy to program and operate. Fits very well in dash as a replacement to the factory unit.
    Cons:
    Doesn't offer top of the line individual front and rear speaker balance; just basic balance. Clock screen will not remain in place without scrolling of options.

    Pretty much everything I wanted for a decent upgrade from the factory-installed radio. Pretty easy to install and Crutchfield was fantastic with the order. HHighly recommend the Sony product and Crutchfield!!

    Performed as expected, simple install, works great with my Volvo OEM speakers.
    Pros:
    Sound, price, ease of install, removable face,
    Cons:
    Looks a bit cheap, but for the price, I'm not complaining, controls not intuitive but once you read the manual all is well, button to release face is to small.

    Excellent quality and ease of installation. I had a friend install it for me and he was very impressed with the quality and features. I love the USB connection too. Added bonus in my book.
    Pros:
    The fit was perfect for the model and make I selected. It was very easy to install and there were several faces to choose from in the box.
    Cons:
    Now that I have a good radio, I have to upgrade the speakers as I found they were so old and several did not work.

    Good Entry lvl unit

    Overall it's a pretty decent head unit. Sound quality is what you would expect out of Sony. It is a basic unit as for features. Very easy to install and wire up. However the menu navigation is "clunky" at best. Once you figure that out the features are lacking. Setting your tones for the sound you wish to hear leaves a lot to be desired. I also don't particularly care for the constant scrolling and blinking text about features. I do a lot of night driving and it's distracting with all this going on about every 15 mins.

    It was a first stereo for my son's first car. We had it installed with in 30 minutes and the sound was great and he couldn't be happier. It sounds goo
