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

Add a sub without adding an amp

And here's a cool trick — Subwoofer Direct Connection lets you combine the output of the receiver's two rear channels to drive a small subwoofer. That's great if you're driving a small compact or a pickup truck and want some extra kick without adding an amp or powered subwoofer.

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.

    Put in Tundra. Wanted to play satellite radio through system without FM signal. Previously had purchased a plug in for the back of the factory radio. However, got bad feedback on the satellite radio. Opted to try a new radio. Worked great. Improved sound of existing speakers. Pulled in stations on FM that could not be reached through old radio.

    Pros: Good sound. Good reception. Audio in and I-Phone plug in work terrific.

    Cons: Menu and lay out of buttons is not intuitive. Have sat down with directions and it still gets confusing.

    This is a replacement for the factory radio in 2004 Honda CR-V. With the kit it is almost plug and play. Almost, because I added a SiriusXM Tuner and had to do a little splicing. With the Crutchfield kit, this was a snap to install. Sound is extraordinary and the controls are very easy to navigate and use. It is a solid buy at a great price.

    Pros: Price, quality, flexibility for AUX, USB and SiriusXM tuner inputs.

    Cons: Still looking...

    I like everything besides the fact of adjusting the equality of the music, it is a different set up, and takes a bit to get use to. It's great for what it does but would like more of a bass adjuster or I guess I haven't figured it out yet

    Decent entry level stereo with good overall versatility. The buttons have a cheap feel, which is common with most of today's head units, unfortunately. I treat all my equipment well, so like other sony decks I've had in the past, I expect it to last years.

    Pros: 2 sets rca outs (2v) subwoofer section with crossover, slope, phase, and sound position USB with easy to navigate folder buttons Excellent antenna sensitivity-pulls a station on nearly every single frequency (ex-107.1, 107.3, 107.5) listening position adjustment Turning beep and exit vehicle beep off option nice illumination. Clear and easy to read in the daytime.

    Cons: Main volume knob is easily pushed in while adjusting volume, entering menu mode. So sometimes when youre in a hurry to turn it up or down, you enter menu mode, which holds the volume until you escape out of menu mode with the back button. Then you can turn it up or down. Can be distracting and annoying for the new user. The 7 band eq doesnt quite hit the sweet spot for me. The mids never seem quite right. All the sound presets (xplod, vocal, rock, etc) I find unusable,

    Installed as part of a full factory replacement on a 2014 Nissan Sentra. Sound quality and volume are good and it has all the features I would ever need. The menu is not that difficult to navigate but it takes some "practice" to remember were are the settings you are looking for. As allways the installation kit made things easier, faster and gave that "original equipment" look.

    Pros: Nice sound and set of features for the money.

    Cons: Not really a con, but the installation didn,t look to me as good as those I did in the past because I had a Single-DIN unit on a Double-Din opening. So I replaced it with the Kenwood DPX300U which now looks at home and gained me some extra features.

    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.

    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

    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!!!

    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 $$.

    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.

    Nice radio, good sound, good reception, standard (stupid) place for a USB port, good for MP3, but difficult to browse by folders.

    Pros: Inexpensive, good sound easy install

    Cons: Annoying Demo mode until you read that part of the manual.

    This seams to be a nice stereo for the money. I bought this for my daughters truck so I am not using it but she is realy enjoying it. Not enough use time yet to really know about the build quality but it apears okay.

    Pros: Easy instalation since I already had the needed accessories like the wire harness adaptors.

    Cons: Nothing really.

    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.

    Amazing Value!

    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".

    Great sounding unit

    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.

    Great Device

    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.

    Cons: None
