Overview

Our take on the Sony CDX-GT570UP

Sony built the CDX-GT570UP CD receiver around the same Digital Reality amp you'll find in their higher-priced car stereos. This unique amp design delivers surprising power combined with an accurate, deep soundstage so music sounds more natural inside your vehicle.

Powerful sound

Sony built the CDX-GT570UP CD receiver around the same Digital Reality amp you'll find in their higher-priced car stereos. This unique amp design delivers surprising power combined with an accurate, deep soundstage so music sounds more natural inside your vehicle.

If you're a sonic tweaker, you'll have plenty of options. Sony includes a 7-band equalizer, digital time correction for sharp and precise stereo imaging, and DM+, which improves the sound of your compressed music. You can also activate the Rear Bass Enhancer which sends only low frequencies to your rear speakers, improving your bass and pulling the soundstage forward.

Sony CDX-GT570UP

Plenty of options

With that great sound comes plenty of ways to enjoy your music. In addition to a CD player with MP3 and WMA playback, the CDX-GT570UP comes equipped with front-panel auxiliary and USB inputs. You can plug in your iPod® or iPhone® to the USB port and enjoy control from the receiver, with nifty search tools like Quick Browzer and ZAPPIN that let you scan and find music quickly.

And if you're a Pandora® Internet radio fan, you can plug in your iPhone then browse stations or rate songs from the receiver's controls. You can add SiriusXM's compact tuner, and experience the impressive programming and coast-to-coast reception that makes satellite radio so popular.

Want to keep your steering wheel 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.

    This receiver is a great value. I was looking for a SiriusXM ready receiver. This one has all the bells and whistles with front and rear AUX inputs, Pandora, a top-notch CD reader (it reads everything), and subwoofer inputs. Great plug and play capabilities make this a great receiver. The one downside is the menu for navigation. I've seen similar problems with other Sony products. The menu is almost too detailed. You'll have to go through an extensive sound shaping process to balance the sound appropriately if you have custom speakers and subwoofers. You'd probably be best off buying crossovers to control the sound because the menu has too many options and one slight adjustment can completely change the sound.

    Pros: Great options for the price. Easy plug and play for devices.

    Cons: It's easy to get lost in menu land.

    Bought to replace an Alpine whose Sirius module went South and which I found difficult to operate. It was a a straightforward swap, but in process it appeared to give me better sound quality than the touted Alpine unit, plus it was infinitely easier to operate. Bonus is the understated illumination, a marked contrast to the multi colored Alpine.

    Pros: Much easier to operate, more 'dignified', stops on the volume/control knob prevent inadvertent changes. Better sound quality through same speaks.

    Cons: Probably not the best unit for a real audiophile due to its simplicity and fewer adjustments available. Perfect unit for me for Sirius and iPod. Would rather have the USB port on the rear than front of unit.

    Great Unit for the Price

    I installed this unit in my Daughters 1996 Rodeo as an upgrade to the factory unit. Even with the original speakers the sound was a big upgrade. The installation was a breeze wit the included Master sheets. The look, fit, and build of the Sony was very impressive at this price point. Having a front USB port and Aux audio port make connecting your device a snap. The tuner locks in on stations very well with more presets than radio stations you will ever listen to. If you are looking for a budget friendly unit with lot's of features and great sound. This Sony will not disappoint.

    Pros: Looks good. Won't break the bank. Tons of features with great sound. Solid build with room for expansion.

    Cons: The control are not the most intuitive. Some older people might be intimidated by the controls. The manual will come in handy while learning all the features.

    An absolutely fantastic system for the low price.... it has many more features than I need or will ever use; it will do everything I want and more. My only dislike of this system is that is don't find it user friendly to operate, but given some time to use it, all should be fine. With all the wiring schematics, harnesses and adapters provided, the installation was extremely easy. I was a bit aggravated to have to go to the auto parts store for crimp connectors being they was the only thing missing to complete the installation.... would be nice if, when ordering, the sales assistant would mention needing such connectors and that Crutchfield offers same. Otherwise, from sales to technical support, Crutchfield has been outstanding!!

    Pros: It's a SONY!! great value nice appearance clean, clear sound

    Cons: Not user friendly to operate, at first. Everything for the installation was provided except crimp connectors.

    First time ever installing a car stereo and I'm 40. Must say that after watching videos and following easy directions, it was very simple to install. Saved about $250 to $300 doing it on my own and getting the accessories needed as a bundle.

    Pros: Sounds insane. Looks great. Has all I need and want. CD, USB, aux, pandora, Siriusxm. Fantastic.

    Cons: Need to really read directions to learn how to use perfectly.

    You get what you pay for. That's how I would describe this head unit. It is just want I wanted. The cheapest name brand CD player with pandora controls, rds, and USB. I also picked it for 17w rms which was higher than the other cea compliant units. The iPod controls are a little quirky. It wants to auto shuffle even though shuffle is off. Great fm reception and sound quality. Wish the menus were simpler, but that's sony for you. I prefer Alpine but can't beat the features and price of this unit!

    Pros: High pass filter, Price, FM Reception, Sound quality, Remote, RDS, USB, Pandora controls, 2 Sets of pre amps, just loaded with features

    Cons: Complicated menus, iPod controls don't always work, Slow response to remote

    I just got an 03 Toyota Carolla with a factory radio, so this was a huge upgrade. In by no means techy but it's very easy to use. I enjoy that with the USB I can control my iPod through the radio instead of hooking it up. Overall great radio

    Pros:

    Cons: It only appears to shuffle by album, unless I'm not doing it right.

    After 8 years, the stock head unit in my Chevy Colorado went "Sleep with the Fishes" and it was the perfect opportunity to upgrade with some "fun" stuff. New Head Unit, four 6 1/2" for the doors and a four channel amp. I'm over forty and I haven't messed with Car Audio since my college days but I felt comfortable with the installation. Needless to say, this build was childs play in relation to what it was like back in the day. Very simple installation, great wiring harness and impressive sound. Crutchfield Customer/Technical Service is impressive Thanks for the great product and the continued support. LET'S ADD A SUBWOOFER!!!

    Pros: Ease of installation

    Cons: Lots of menus and submenus

    A lot of bang for the buck

    I bought this to replace an older Sony aftermarket model which has been discontinued. All I needed was AM/FM radio, CD, USB and Aux in, and I didn't want to spend a lot, so this like a good solution. It has similar controls to the previous model I had, so I was somewhat familiar with how everything works, but it still can be frustrating at times if you need to do anything buried deep in the menus. Small buttons and multi-use buttons don't help, but I knew what I was getting into, so I can't really complain. Haven't used the Pandora feature yet and probably won't, but i guess it's a nice addition to have. I had hoped the rear connection for the wiring harness would be the same as my older unit's but it wasn't (I called Crutchfield before ordering and was told it should be the same), so I had to re-wire the harness. Not a huge deal, but it slowed the swap-out process a bit.

    Pros: A lot of features for the money. Sony name is a plus.

    Cons: Deep menus because of the number of features, and small buttons.

    Great deal!

    It has been more than 20 years since I have removed a factory radio and replaced with aftermarket. I have paid big box stores to do it several times assuming it was too complicated these days. But with my son's 'new' truck, I knew I wanted a Sony radio and couldn't find one in stock in our area before Christmas. I made my first purchase from Crutchfield and it was the best decision! The radio itself is great. Sound quality you would expect from Sony, great volume, great tones and bluetooth or usb connections for his ipod. But my overwhelming take away is how Crutchfield made SURE the radio and speakers would fit his vehicle, provided detailed instructions AND all the tools needed for us to DIY. So VERY impressed!!! And it was easy with some intermediate level skills (wiring splice for adapter etc). My son is thrilled and so am I. Thank you Crutchfield! You have certainly earned a new customer!

    Pros: Very good sound for the $$.

    Cons:

    Liked the one I put in my boat so much, I bought a second on for my daughter's 03 Camry. Factory radio did not have aux or usb connections. For the price and easy installation it is a no brainer compared to an FM xmitter. Now she can keep her phone charged while listening to tunes on her phone.

    Pros: Great value. Installation kit made install a snap. Good rich sound. A professional installation would have cost 2-3 times as much.

    Cons: Complicated menu to get to often used adjustments. A separate loudness button would be nice.

    I wanted a unit to replace the failing factory one in my sons car. Bonus if he could use his IPhone 5 to play music. This was cheap and Sony did a great job. It has a USB input that not only accepts the IPhone 5 but also charges it! The removable face plate is another nice feature I did not expect at this price point. The sound was OK. Replacing units in the past always made the factory speakers sound fantastic. This was not the case. All in all you can't go wrong with this unit.

    Pros: Price IPhone 5 compatible Charging USB port Lots of programmable channels Removable face plate Easy install

    Cons: Sound quality was good but not great.

    This is an amazing unit and I would be happy with it if I paid a lot more. If it fits your needs (AUX, USB for Apple, Pandora, CD, and Tuner), you will love it. It does not have some of the higher end bells and whistles (Bluetooth etc.), but I was happy to pay for the unit at a much lower price point. Installation on my Toyota Sequoia, was so simple given the installation kit, instructions and phone support. I would recommend calling the phone support initially, to go over some of the very simple wiring instructions. Additional tip: if you are lucking enough to get Jenny on the chat line or Allen on the installation support line, you could not be in better hands!!!

    Pros: Value and sound quality are its biggest pros. I does what it is supposed to do at does it at a high level!! Installation was simple, with the help of the installation instruction included and the phone support available.

    Cons: Only con is that the numbers and letters on the unit are a touch small, although that is more of a personal problem as my kids and wife see the buttons quite well. Might need a new lens prescription. No other "cons".

    For the money, this unit has it all. Hardest part of installing was the removal of the old factory unit. The removal tools were worthless at grabbing spring loaded snaps and I ended up ripping the old one out. The new mounting bracket worked slick. I liked the simple treble and bass buttons of my old one. It was easy to turn from booming bass to more treble for conversational radio. The new one has more steps to get it right. Love the new USB and auxiliary ports! Never had a Sony car stereo, and overall I really do like it

    Pros: all of the above mentioned

    Cons: a BIG one is the remote. You need to be right in front of the unit for it to work. Sitting in the drivers or passengers seat and pointing doesn't do it. I thought I had a bad battery. More safe to just push buttons on the unit than to be reaching over.

    This is a great deck. Install was quick and straight forward and I purchased it at a very affordable price. Comes with all the nice extra stuff that you don't have to use if you don't want to. Setup is easy as well. I really like the option to adjust the subwoofer volume. You can easily adjust it on the head unit rather than having to mess with your amp.

    Pros: built well Multi level adjustments Extras incl.

    Cons: None

    This is a great value. The features are many more than I expected and the installation process was relatively painless. The Sony name and the reliability of the product go without saying, but the end product is way beyond my expectation. The Crutchfield team promised an easy installation, and it was easy. I recommend this product to anyone who wants a value-oriented product with a lot of quality features. I am totally satisfied.

    Pros: Ease of use. Features beyond expectation. Ease of installation.

    Excellent sound quality. Sound can be very finely tuned in the cabin of your vehicle although it took some time reading the manual to figure out how. Sony has thrown in lots of bells and whistles which I don't know that I'll ever use but I'm still happy for the functionality I do use for the price.

    this is a solid unit I am still trying to master all the funtions, really like the rear speakers as a suibwoofer feature'It is much much better than factory unit [97 chevy s 10] I put a pair or 6x9 speakers in cabinets behind the seat and kept a pair of coax 4x6 in the dash that were there allready I am happy with it at this point but to get more bass I will place a sub amp at a later date

    Pros: very inexpensive Mastersheet is the bomb I am old school [all connections solderd fluxed and shrink tubed] the quality of sound and seperation was worlds better than what I had [factory cassette] The flashing display is not distacting like 75% of new head units to me it is nice to have both wiring bundles so I can sit at workbench and do wiring

    Cons: I wished that this unit prodeced more bass....but for under 100 dollars what do you want , there is not much room under the dash in this truck but if you are not in a hurry you can get it done

    I selected this unit based on two factors "price and XM compatible". Thanks to Crutchfields excellent instructions and accessories, that all went very smooth. I had read several reviews other people had posted and there weren't any real problems with the unit. I've read the instructions very completely and found the set up was vey easy to follow. Intuitive I think you call it. .My only complaint is the sound quality from the FM portion. All channels selected seem to be too bright with no base tone. I've tried selecting different equalizer settings. I've tried every option or combination of them, to make the FM receiver sound more mellow. A CD sounds good on playback. The old head unit sounded much better on FM than this unit. I'm considering reinstalling the old unit and returning this unit.

    Pros: Good price, XM compatible. Easy set up and install.

    Cons: Poor sound quality from receiver on FM. All stations are strong and local.

    It's a good head unit but its a little tricky to figure out. The sound it puts out is great and the iPod USB works pretty good. It's a pain to search for stuff on it so I would recommend reading the book lol. Or maybe I'm just not to good at figuring it out. Any ways it's worth the money and is a really good head unit for the price.

    Pros: Works good for price Puts out great sound

    Cons: A little tricky to find stuff and to change stuff on it

    The FM tuner is top notch, as the Crutchfield rep. said it would be. I have favorite stations that are weak in my area, and there are powerful stations a few channels away. Interference and weak signals has been an issue with my old receiver. The second great feature is the USB flash drive MP3 playing capability. No moving parts and no skipping on bumpy roads. I don't anticipate using the CD much, as USB is so practical. I don't require kilowatt power amps, so I am happy with the power output. There was one feature I could not get to come up. I am using one of the rear outputs to drive a sub. It is supposed to have a feature that provides LPF for subs, and I could not find it.

    Pros: Tuner sensitivity and selectivity and interference rejection is tops. USB control is excellent.

    Cons: Wading through the menus to use the LPF for rear speakers - I could not find it.

    I like the 7-band equalizer on such an inexpensive unit. I haven't had a chance to try out the bass enhancement on the rear speakers yet ( I still have to route the wires for rear speakers in my pickup), but I'm looking forward to that.

    Pros: Remote control is nice. Volume control is not too sensitive, so it is easy to adjust even if the road is a little bumpy.

    Cons: Lettering on the controls is a bit small; I'll have to memorize what's what, because they can't be seen while driving. I had hoped (and had been led to believe) that a thumb drive with files down two or three folders in a tree structure would be searchable somehow on the display, but they aren't. So much for organizing the material on such a device.

    I wanted to upgrade the factory radio in my 05 Jeep Liberty. I've dealt with Crutchfield in the past an I was sure thay could steer me in the right direction. The tech advisor recommended the Sony radio with an XM converter. I couldn't be happier. Ease of use and installation and it sounds like a much more expensive unit. The trim kit supplied makes it look like a factory installation. I can always count on Crutchfield.

    Pros: Multiple internal and external source modes. Removable face plate. Can customize sound.

    Cons: Controls are a little small.

Sounds great, Ease of use (for me), wife lets me configure sound for her, says its to complicated. Easy to install, Like the color, menu, etc. Only complaint would be the USB. It only works with certain ipods, would not work with my wifes ipod shuffle or her android phone (which is newer). Bought a cheap flash drive, filled it with music and works great. She loves it.

    Pros: Good Sound, Easy Install, Front USB.

    I installed this Sony stereo on my boat, flush mounted next to the Raymarine chartplotter, where it is protected from salt spray by a plexiglas cover. Installation was simple and the stereo sounds great. I listen mostly to Pandora when on the bay so this Pandora-friendly head unit for $79 was a no-brainer. Very satisfied with the product and the service from Crutchfield.

    CEA2006 Compliant Amplifier: The power specifications for the Sony CDX-GT570UP are compliant with the CEA2006 Mobile Amplifier Power Testing and Measurement standards from the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA). These standards were developed as a way to equitably compare power specs from model to model and between manufacturers. The power output specs for the CDX-GT570UP are as follows:

    • Continuous Power Output: 17 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms, 20Hz-20kHz, 1% THD-N)
    • Peak Power Output: 52 watts x 4-channels (208 total watts)

    2V/4Ch Preamp Outputs: The CDX-GT570UP contains two pairs of 2-volt RCA preamp outputs. A front pair and another pair that can be set for the rear channels or for subwoofer operation.

    Subwoofer Controls: When the unit's subwoofer output is activated, the preamp output becomes non-fading and a low pass filter is activated with a selectable cut-off frequency of 50Hz, 60Hz, 80Hz, 100Hz, 120Hz, or Off. You can also adjust the slope (1/2/3) of the low-pass crossover. You can adjust the subwoofer preamp output's volume level independently from the head unit's volume control from -10 to +10 in 1dB increments. In addition, you can select the phase of the subwoofer output from Normal or Reverse.

    Subwoofer Direct Connection: You can connect a compact subwoofer to this head unit without the need of a separate power amplifier. Simply connect a single subwoofer (4-8 ohm) directly to head unit's left or right rear speaker leads (but not both). Approximate power output for the Subwoofer Direction Connection is 25 watts RMS.  Same subwoofer controls apply.

    High-Pass Filter: The front & rear speaker outputs offer a selectable high-pass crossover frequency of 50Hz, 60Hz, 80Hz, 100Hz, 120Hz, or Off. You can also adjust the slope (1/2/3) of the high-pass crossover.

The Custom EQ7 mode allows  you to make  your own equalizer settings. You can adjust the level (+/-6dB) of seven different frequency bands - Band1 (63Hz), Band2 (160Hz), Band3 (400Hz), Band4 (1kHz), Band5 (2.5khz), Band6 (6.3khz), and Band7 (16.0kHz).
    • Listening Position: This unit can change the localization of sound by delaying the sound output from each speaker to suit your position, and simulate a natural sound field with the feeling of being in the center of it wherever you sit in the car. You can choose from Front Right, Front Left, Front Center, or Off. You can also set the subwoofer distance of the subwoofer to Near, Normal, or Far
    • RBE (Rear Bass Enhancer): RBE enhances the bass sound by applying the low-pass filter setting to the rear speakers. This function allows the rear speakers to work as a subwoofer even if there is no subwoofer connected.
    • Dynamic Loudness: Dynamic Loudness refers to compensating for volume level & signal gain.
    • DM+ Advanced: DM+ Advanced improves digitally compressed sound by restoring high frequencies lost in the compression process (works only for USB).

    Automatic Level Optimizer: Automatic Level Optimizer analyzes each track's playback level & adjusts the output level to optimize transitions between tracks & sources.

    Beep Tone: The in-dash head unit provides an audible beep to confirm button operation. This function can be turned On or Off.

    Why did you buy this?

    Second purchase of this. Sound quality, features etc... [ Michael  May 27, 2016 ]
    Cost [ David  May 18, 2016 ]
    This the 2nd one that I have purchased, and I have a 4 classic car collection. [ DENNIS  May 10, 2016 ]
    Nice radio. [ Mark  May 10, 2016 ]
    ITS A SONY - DUH [ Lynn  May 05, 2016 ]
    Features and price. [ Joseph  May 02, 2016 ]
    Great price on a good deck and all the installation goodies are thrown in for free as usual with CF and that's why I keep coming back [ Bret  Apr 28, 2016 ]
    I bought this radio a few months ago for my truck. I wanted an inexpensive upgrade. The functions and sound quality with the factory speakers surprised me. Now my wife drives this veh all the time and she leaves her iPod plugged in full time. Works great with her iPhone also. Now I am ordering 2 to put in our RV, one up front and one in the back (it's a 36 footer). The tuner is the only weak link. Low signal sensitivity and the sound quality is not as good as other inputs. Weird, but noticeable. [ Don  Apr 28, 2016 ]
    Price and just replacing a unit that was stolen from vehicle to have some music to listen to on the way home and from work [ Brian  Apr 23, 2016 ]
    This unit was on sale and â??scratch & dentâ?? priced to boot. After considering my other choice, having an HD tuner at $30 more, I decided this had enough features with front Aux, USB & MP3. I live 10 minutes from work, so how much time to I have for another feature.(?) An MP3 will last me at least a week. [ Gregg  Apr 15, 2016 ]
    Prior experience with brand, and 4 channel output. [ Brandon  Apr 09, 2016 ]
    it was a top seller and had a cd player and sirius xm ready [ Fred  Apr 03, 2016 ]
    great price. like blurtooth. [ Peter  Apr 01, 2016 ]
    My 3rd Sony car receiver. These work great, don't break, and have the most features for the least amount of money. [ w  Mar 26, 2016 ]
    Was cheap and looked good so I went for it. [ Rick  Mar 19, 2016 ]
    Great value for the price. Especially with Sirius option. [ Rodney  Mar 17, 2016 ]
    I like Sony Items. This one will be nice as I can use a thumb drive and have all 10GB+ music at my disposal. I have an older Sony Ipod compatible car stereo in my shed connected to four older car speakers and an 8" sub. I expect this stereo to perform a similar function installed in my toolbox at work. [ Jeremy  Mar 17, 2016 ]
    Great price and good past experience and history of support and service with Crutchfield. New used toy hauler had bad radio. Not after receipt. [ KENNETH  Mar 12, 2016 ]
    Price [ Fidel  Mar 11, 2016 ]
    Right combination of features for my purpose. [ Daniel  Mar 09, 2016 ]
    i have had this head unit for about 2 1/2- 3 years and i must say its a very good head unit. i haven't had any problems out of it. if i could go back and purchase a new one i would probably get another sony head unit but with bluetooth capabilities. i recommend getting bluetooth because it just makes playing your music and things a lot easier. [ donta  Mar 07, 2016 ]
    i picked this item for my sister's car. she really is not the music buff as i am so i wanted something that was right the point as far as functionality goes. this item in my taste and in her needs pretty much fit the bill. my sister wanted something that plays CDs and didnt want to mod her car to hook up a amp and with this item she is able to add a sub and get good sound because of the Subwoofer Direct Connection. i am sure she will love this. i think it is a great pick. [ kemo  Mar 04, 2016 ]
    tech suggested it [ Ashley  Feb 19, 2016 ]
    the price was a great deal [ David  Feb 12, 2016 ]
    Multiple features, good ratings, discounted installation items. Crutchfield has competitors beat. I've tried them all. [ Alphonso  Feb 08, 2016 ]
    I needed a radio with iPod control and xm compatibility along with two sets of preamp outputs. This radio has everything I needed at a great price and having worked for a company that installs Sony products I know the stuff is reliable [ John  Feb 07, 2016 ]
    Sirius capability, and Sony brand. [ John  Feb 06, 2016 ]
    Great sound, second one I have now. [ chris  Jan 29, 2016 ]

    I have been a crutchfield customer for 35 years [ Van B.  Dec 14, 2015 ]
    Previous Sony stereo in other car sounded great. Put this in daughter's Escort with speakers and really sounds good. Menu options are a little difficult and easy to get lost in setup, but sound is pretty good. [ James  Dec 14, 2015 ]

    23 questions already asked

    Yes it does just scroll the display button. [ MICHAEL  May 15, 2016 ]
    Yes it does; you'll find it in the menu selection [ LATRELLE  May 14, 2016 ]
    Yes, this radio does have a clock. [ Robert  May 14, 2016 ]
    Yes [ KEN  May 14, 2016 ]
    Yes [ John  May 14, 2016 ]
    For you mean a blue wire coming off the back to tell the amp to turn on yes it does [ Nicholas  Jun 03, 2016 ]
    It has rca audio out puts and a din plug. I would think this would enable you to put in an external amp. I hope this helps. [ JEFFREY  May 09, 2016 ]
    I am sorry, don't know. No longer have the vehicle & radio [ Valerie  May 08, 2016 ]
    No [ russ  May 11, 2016 ]
    This radio does not have Android Auto. That interface method requires at least a 6.5" touchscreen on the radio. It does not support AOA 2.0 for newer Android integration. Feel free to call us on 1-800-324-9695 for a personalized recommendation on a radio. I hope this helps! My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=101 [ Paul  May 11, 2016 ]  Staff
    can go into the General settings and change the display but you can't show them down and I believe in the Display settings you can also dim the display but there is no auto dim [ PAUL  Apr 08, 2016 ]
    Yes in the display menu there is a place to make the side bars not bounce anymore. You will have to look in the manual for the specific name of the menu as I cannot remember right now. [ Ryan  Apr 08, 2016 ]
    There is no way to make an external CD changer or player work with our radios. I wish I had different news for you there. My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=101 [ Paul  Apr 04, 2016 ]  Staff
    I actually found deep in the manual that it is OK to use 4 or 8 ohm speakers after I posted the question. Thanks [ Jeremy  Mar 27, 2016 ]
    Don't know how solid the finals are but I have been using 8 ohm speakers for over a year. [ william  Mar 26, 2016 ]
    Yes, but your stick will have to be formatted in FAT32, the more modern exFAT won't work. It also won't play ANY lossless formats such as WAV or FLAC. [ JerryPhoto  Apr 21, 2016 ]
    It would read files downloaded from Windows Media Player. I don't know if that is mp3 files or wma files. [ RICHARD  Mar 25, 2016 ]
    It sure does. You'll just have to learn how to scroll through albums and the tracks, which is really easy. And the random feature is awesome and very rarely plays the same track. [ David  Mar 25, 2016 ]
    The droid will work but not with Pandora and I don't know about the other [ Nathan  Feb 21, 2016 ]
    You can check to see if this will fit your vehicle by using our Outfit My Car tool: http://www.crutchfield.com/car/carselector.aspx For additional details on fit or installation please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat.

    yes [ sachi  Feb 15, 2016 ]
    If I understand you correctly, it does come with one. I'm not 100 percent sure what a bezel is but if you mean the aluminum sleeve that anchors to the car where the unit slides & locks into it then yes it does have this. Let me know if this is not what you're talking about & I'll be happy to clarify. Hope this helps, it's a good unit for the money if you can live without Bluetooth [ TODD  Feb 14, 2016 ]
    It comes with the small bezel you see. That's all I needed. However, if you have a larger opening they have a retro kit you can buy. It's sized to fit perfectly in older installations. RHF [ ROBERT  Feb 13, 2016 ]
    There is a USB port so i would say yes i always had my ipod hooked up. [ Johnathon  Jan 19, 2016 ]

    Sure can. Just use the Aux jack and change your tuner to Aux mode and Voila! You're good to to go. And the sound is great! j [ Michael  Jan 19, 2016 ]

    You will want to contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat to discuss compatibility with your plug from the other receiver. The chances here are likely pretty slim though, as the pin-outs on the harnesses often change between model years (and sometimes between models in the same year). [ Jeff  Dec 14, 2015 ]  Staff
