Our take on the Sony CDX-GT575UP

by Ken Nail
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.

Style and substance

You take pride in your car, and you want your new car stereo to look good in the dash. Sony's CDX-GT575UP CD receiver offers sharp styling and user-friendly controls, and you can choose from over 35,000 color choices for the display and button illumination to create the right look for your vehicle. And this receiver has the sonic punch to match its good looks.

Sony CDX-GT575UP

Crank it up and enjoy the ride

Sony built the CDX-GT575UP around the Digital Reality amp, a unique design delivers surprising power combined with an accurate, deep soundstage so music sounds more natural inside your vehicle. If you're a tweaker, 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.

Subwoofer Direct Connection lets you combine the output of the receiver's two rear channels to drive a small subwoofer. That's great way to add some extra bass kick to your ride, perfect for small compacts or truck cabs, where space for an amp may be limited.

Your music on tap

The CDX-GT575UP comes equipped with front-panel auxiliary and USB inputs, along with a CD player that features MP3 and WMA playback. You can also plug in your iPod® or iPhone® to the USB port and browse your playlists from the receiver. Nifty search tools like Quick Browzer and ZAPPIN let you scan and find music quickly and easily. Plug in your iPhone, and you'll be able to access your Pandora® Internet radio stations and rate songs with the receiver's controls. You can also 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 vehicles, you can use 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 receiver, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. Check the "Accessories" tab for compatible adapters.

Note: If you're going to use your iPod with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for specific iPod model compatibility with this receiver or its optional iPod adapter.

    CEA2006 Compliant Amplifier: The power specifications for the Sony CDX-GT575UP 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-GT575UP 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-GT575UP 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 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). 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.

    • EQ7: You can select an equalizer curve from eight music types - Xplod, Vocal, Edge, Cruise, Space, Gravity, Custom, or Off (Flat). 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.

    Display Features

    Detachable Face: The CDX-GT575UP features a detachable face for theft prevention. A face-fixing screw is supplied for making the face non-detachable, if desired. No face case is included with this unit. An optional soft face case (142DFC1X, sold separately) can be purchased for this unit.

With selectable Sound Synchronization, the timing of the color change is synchronized with the audio source. You can select from 12 preset colors (red/amber/m-amber/yellow/white/light green/green/light blue/sky blue/blue/purple/pink), customized color, & 5 preset patterns (rainbow/ocean/sunset/forest/random). The unit's Dynamic Color Illuminator offers the following advance features.

    • Day/Night Color Mode: You can register a customize color for the unit's display and buttons for day & night time driving.
    • Sound Synchronization: The color changes according to synchronization of playing music. When you select a preset pattern sound synchronization becomes effective.
    • White Menu: You can display the menu more clearly (White text) without concern for the unit's other color settings.
    • Start White: When you power-on the head unit, the color of the unit's display and buttons turn white and then the color changes to your chosen customize color. You can enjoy this effect whenever the source is turned on.

    Motion Display: This feature shows moving patterns and a spectrum analyzer on the display when turned on.

    Auto Scroll: This feature allows long displayed items to scroll automatically across the display when the track is changed on a disc.

    Display Illumination/Clock Display: Pressing the Source/Off button once will switch sources. Pressing and holding the Source/Off button for one second will turn off audio output, but the clock display and button illumination remain on. To turn the unit off completely, you must press and hold the Source/Off button for two seconds.

    If you are looking for an awesome headunit that is not too flashy, this is your unit. The installation was a breeze and the head unit looks sleek once installed in my IS300. It offers many great features and functions but I was mainly getting it for the iPod integration which works great! I would recommend to anyone, especially for the price.
    Pros:
    Lots of features and functions Easy to install and use

    This is a great price for a quality unit with a lot of options and adjustability. Shipping was extremely fast and everything you need to install it is included.
    Pros:
    Lots of adjustability, Can customize the sound and look of the unit, Easy to hook up, Owners manual provides detailed instructions for use.
    Cons:
    Takes time to get it set up just right, IPOD controls are a little difficult to sort through while driving

    Simply Sony. Simply Satisfied.

    Written By ianlucky21, Denver, CO on Thursday, April 17, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    First off, my car is a 1992 Bonneville, and had 1.5 din size only... so that ruled out all double din decks. So I needed a simple but "feature-enough" radio to satisfy my needs. This Sony does it. What sold me the most is it's 7 band EQ. And yes, I must have my audio equalized in life, whether it's home or car. The graphic equalizer on the Sony is better than all those "parametric" ones found in JVCs and Kenwoods and Pioneers. And sometimes only the higher-end expensive decks have 5 or 10 band graphic EQs, and so forth. The second thing that sold me was the color customization. Again, most other decks that are high end and expensive only have the color customization. Way to go Sony! This was the cheapest Radio (for $89) to come with color customization. My Bonneville's interior lights up orangey red... and the Sony's custom colors totally matched it.

    I am running 6" Rockford Fosgate component speakers on front doors and rear deck (straight off radio power); and I'm running two 10" MTX subs in the trunk (separate amp). The system sounds amazing. The Sony has enough audio adjustments to perfectly tune the speakers and the subs. All my friends compliment on the clean, tight, "studio" sounding performance of my Sony and all components.

    The Sony CDX-GT575UP is not a fancy touch screen, GPS, dvd player kind of radio. But IT IS a perfect performer, and perfect solution, for sweet amazing listening of music...

    The best most affordable factory upgrade for any car. Period.
    Pros:
    -7 Band Graphic Equalizer -Color Customization to match any car -Plenty of audio adjustments= HPF, Speaker Alignment, Aux Level Adj -Plenty of Subwoofer adjustments= LPF, Slopes, Sub Alignment -Simple interface
    Cons:
    It does not accept voice commands =/ lol

    Pros:

    Overall I'm satisfied with this stereo. It was easy to install once I purchased the adapter wiring harness. It was basically "plug and play". It just wasn't clear to me that I had to buy a wiring harness when I originally bought the stereo due to my stock JBl system already in my truck. It's just like any new device, you have to spend some time with it and you will get used to using it. It looks and sounds great in my truck!
    Pros:
    Easy to install, looks cool, remote control
    Cons:
    Directions were not very good for installation, pandora function controlled through the stereo

    This radio was easy to install and sounds great in my 2002 Chevy Trailblazer. The sound quality is much better than I expeced and the equalizer has many settings to either use a set setting or custom settings. It seems a bit confusing to set up at first but then after a quick learning curve, it is easy.
    Pros:
    Sounds great, price and easy to install
    Cons:
    Although it is Sirius/XM ready, you still have to buy a receiver to get the Sirius/XM stations which means I would have to remove it and install it again. Not willing to do that.

    Very nice stereo. This is the second Sony car stereo I've bought through Crutchfield. You will need the manual to get it set up properly. I used this one to replace a factory original stereo (that had all but died) in my wife's Chrysler Town and Country. The sound is great and my wife loves it.
    Pros:
    Well made. Nice display. USB port on the front is really handy.
    Cons:
    For older eyes, the print on the front is hard to read easily and without the manual, you probably won't make full use of all of its features.

    Alright I'm into big bass and low frequencies this radio did kick with my stock system but the second I put my two Rockford Fosgate P2's in the mix it would clip and shut off, I managed to fix a way around it in the EQ but this was only a temporary fix because now I'm have the clipping problem more often. So all in all nice deck of stock speakers not for a subwoofer set up.
    Pros:
    Good with stock
    Cons:
    Bad with subs

    been years since I have replaced a factory stereo and I was amazed at how much better the technology has become and for much less the cost. String receiver and both USB and AUX front inputs make hooking up any iPod or iPhone a cinch. controlling your mobile device from the display is a little tricky at first but once you figure out how to o it its not that hard. Overall very please with the quality, sound, and most of all cost of this stereo. And as always Crutchfield Tech Support was very helpful answering the one stupid question I always have.
    Pros:
    easy install, customizable, front USB/AUX inputs, strong FM receiver
    Cons:
    tricky navigation of mobile device from head unit

    I previously owned the Clarion 4" CD deck and the FM sensitivity was horrible. The screen was invisible during daylight hours. The new Sony is amazing! You can change the color of the display and it even self-adjusts for nighttime driving. I really enjoy the radio as the FM Sensitivity is wonderful as I live out in the sticks.
    Pros:
    Variable color display ease of operations and great FM sensitivity
    Cons:
    Annoying beeping after you shut down the car, but outside of that...not a thing.

    This radio does more than you'll ever need. There are so many settings, you'll never use them all. A very good and cool looking unit for the money. I'm a 20 year removed audiophile and with the Crutchfield pieces that come with the purchase, this was a very quick, no fuss/no muss installation.
    Pros:
    Endless settings, endless color options to match your vehicle, USB port doubles as a charger (very nice)
    Cons:
    Endless settings, dial button too easily depresses to the settings options when you simply want to adjust the volume (minor quirk)

    Purchased this Sony to replace a double din OEM AM/FM/Cassette radio in a low mileage 1988 completely stock Supra. Was thinking about a blue tooth capable stereo but decided against it since I didn't want to run mic wires up and around... I say "Basic" since this was a low-end (under $100) stereo. I say "Plus" because it has a CD, USB port, Aux port, Serius, Pandora, remote, etc. That's about 10 x the features of the OEM stereo. Set the colors to match the existing instruments. Installed the storage pocket underneath for the iPone and all is good in my Supra. Replaced the dried out original speakers. Original speakers are 4" in front, 5" in back. Replace them with like. No Sub (although this stereo has the outputs for it). Sound is fine from this stereo although limited by the speakers.
    Pros:
    Easy install, lots of usable features, sound is fine.
    Cons:
    None

    Installed this unit on my 2002 Jeep Wrangler. When playing CDs, they skips on every single road bump!!! I rather listen to the radio for now, instead of the annoying interruptions when playing my favorites CDs while driving!!! I do not recommend this unit!
    Pros:
    USB, Variable color illumination, remote, Good sound (radio) & Looks good
    Cons:
    CD player skips while driving!!!!!

    Sony Receiver.

    I bought this for my wife and she likes it because it's way better than the stock stereo in her car. She likes that she can connect her ipod in to the receiver and change the songs right from the unit itself without having to locate the ipod from the console. The receiver all comes with a very functional remote control which allows our kids to change the stations from the back seat when we travel as a family and saves us fro the hassle of having to do it for them every three minutes when they're tired of the songs that's currently playing on the radio. This is a good stereo and for the very inexpensive price, we hit the jackpot. We Love It!
    Pros:
    beautiful looking, has all the things I need to connect personal devices easily
    Cons:
    Buttons are labeled with small print and it has too many choices with few buttons so it's hard to change sound preferences unless you're an audiophile.

    Installation instructions were easy to follow. Set-up instructions for the unit were clear and easy to follow. Could hear the difference between the factory unit and this unit without replacing the original speakers. I should have replace the factory unit earlier.
    Pros:
    Will use Crutchfield again Sound quality
    Cons:
    None

    I replaced the older SONY in my RV with the GT575UP and was realy suprised with the ease of instalation and the sound that was coming out of the speakers through out the RV. I rated value and sound quality the highest because they were the two things the most important to me. Thanks for the great radio.

    Easy install. Great sound on factory speakers. I installed this in my girl friends car and she loves it. She did most of the set up and digs the multicolor display. The pandora feature is awesome. Getting ready to order one for my daughters car. Try it you'll like it!

    A great Sony deck for the price

    Written By Jerry B., Tucson,Az on Tuesday, June 04, 2013
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    This is a pretty cool deck. I really like the sound quality, and the features. It is fairly easy to navigate thru the features and menu; if the booklet is handy to translate the abbreviations. The multiple color options make it very customizable for any interior. I really like the sony decks and have always come back to them. Overall this is a great amateur deck or a good pro deck for the experienced audiophile.
    Pros:
    Custom options for look and sound, pandora and sirius ready. Power output, direct sub hookup, front usb and aux jack output.
    Cons:
    Menu names are abbreviated and that makes adjustment harder. really Need the booklet to figure it all out. Usb does not charge my droid x2 very well.

    Caught this unit on sale and was blown away after install. Has a ton of functions and options but reading the included manual makes it fairly simple. Outstanding value for what I required in my CJ7.
    Pros:
    Tons of customizable features. Ease of use.
    Cons:
    None as of yet

    Was looking for a replacement radio for a Jeep Wrangler. Due to the not so secure nature of a Jeep, I was looking at the lower cost units, but found this Sony unit and couldn't be happier with this product.
    Pros:
    Quick shipping, everything needed for a complete installation was included. Product works great
