Overview

Our take on the Sony CDX-GT700HD

The Sony CDX-GT700HD CD receiver combines the ability to play all your favorite media with a built-in HD Radio™ tuner that'll take you to the cutting edge of radio. Plus, you can connect and control your iPod® without having to buy an optional adapter, and you'll even find convenient front panel USB and auxiliary inputs for your portables.

The Sony CDX-GT700HD CD receiver combines the ability to play all your favorite media with a built-in HD Radio™ tuner that'll take you to the cutting edge of radio. Plus, you can connect and control your iPod® without having to buy an optional adapter, and you'll even find convenient front panel USB and auxiliary inputs for your portables.

Built-in HD Radio tuner
Tune to an FM or AM station that's broadcasting digital HD Radio signals and you'll enjoy better sound than you've ever experienced on the airwaves, all without static or distortion. You'll also enjoy extra features like additional programming broadcast on secondary or tertiary channels — choices that aren't available to regular radio listeners.

Once you connect your iPod to the CDX-GT700HD, you'll appreciate the convenience of iTunes® tagging. When you hear a song you like on HD Radio, just press a button on the receiver to "tag" it. Song information is saved to your iPod — simply connect your iPod to your computer and go to the Apple iTunes store to buy the song whenever you want.

Find your music files quickly
The CDX-GT700HD boasts an impressive set of controls for navigating through your iPod's music or any MP3, WMA, and AAC files you've burned to disc. Sony's Quick-BrowZer feature lets you search for songs by genre, artist, or album — you just rotate the knob to find the song you want, then push in on the knob to select. The Jump control leaps through your playlist in 10% increments, great if you're dealing with a bunch of files. Switch to passenger control and your passengers can select tunes with the iPod's controls while you concentrate on your driving.

Shape the sound
Sony's DM+ Advanced circuitry restores the details lost when music files are compressed, so you enjoy the best possible sound from your files. The EQ3 Stage 2 equalizer includes eight preset tone curves and a 3-band equalizer for adjusting the lows, mids, and highs. The Dynamic Soundstage Organizer adds presence and life to your music by raising the soundstage up to ear level — the three levels of adjustment let you pick the setting that works best for your car.

Ready for system building
You'll find three sets of preamp outputs for adding external amplifiers or a powered subwoofer. Built-in high- and low-pass filters ensure you send your speakers only the frequencies they're best equipped to handle.

Want to keep your car's steering wheel audio 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.

This is a great head unit that works well with the synsc1 sirius connect.

    I bought this item to replace the factory installed radio/cassette deck in my 2000 Nissan Frontier pickup. The price was right for me. I wanted to be able to play my personal selection of music off of a USB flashdrive, which this item offered. Although I've never done it before, installation was much easier than I anticipated, thanks to Crutchfield analyzing what I would need and supplying the proper wiring harness. I called the 800 number tech support and talked to a man who promptly answered my questions clearly. It's not always clear in the printed instructions, so being able to immediately call and talk to a knowledgeable person during the installation was great. I have been enjoying my music every day for several weeks without any problems. Basically you have to learn the many features by trial and error, but it is not difficult to find where things are and which settings I prefer. I will probably upgrade my old speakers at some point, but for now I am very happy with the overall sound I'm getting. Five years from now I hope I can be equally pleased with longevity.

    The radio has good sound. I have an Infinity system in an 2001 Dodge Intrepid. People would say that it was a good system, however, it didn't sound any different than any other radio to me. (factory radio) With the Sony I hear a big different. If you are installing yourself, read and understand the directions and don't match color for color on the wiring. I did and had to re-wire.

    Pros: Good sound.

    Cons: A litte hard to understand the instructions.

    Puchased this unit and installation kit from crutchfield to upgrade my sons 1999 Chevy Lumina stock factory head unit. He's only 17 years old and thinks this is the coolest birthday present I ever bought for him. Now, we ride around in his car because his stereo is no much cooler than mine. I was amazed at how easy it was to install using the kit and instructions provided by crutchfield for free. I did have to buy a few extra pieces for the install though such as heat shrink butt connectors, a roll of electrical tape, a heavy duty crimper, and a heat gun. I'm looking forward to purchasing another of this same head unit for my 1999 suburban.

    Pros: Easy to install, HD radio tuner, IPOD/IPhone interface, available factory connected sub preamp output and 4 mosfet output ports

    Cons: Only two color illumination choices, flip down face takes a little practice to figure out how to put it on after removing it

    I picked the Sony over similar units from Pioneer, JVC, etc. because of the tuner specs and I have not been disappointed. The number of stations it brings in clearly on AM, FM, HD is amazing. The rest of the unit is fine. I like the main control knob but the buttons on the left are pretty small. More input and output options than available on most units in this price range. I'm happy with it.

    Pros: Tuner, input and output options

    Cons: display doesn't do anything for me but that is not why I bought it some controls a little small and hard to see

    I purchased this Sony unit to replace my factory radio/cd player in my 2003 Ford Taurus. The sound quality of this unit blows away the factory unit. The menus are very easy to use and the unit was very easy to program. For under $125, this is an amazing car stereo.

    Pros: Ease of use, sound quality, visual appearance.

    Cons: Cannot display radio station name and clock at the same time. I feel I need to be extra careful not to break the removable flip down face plate to insert CDs.

    I was looking at dual din until I found this unit. For the price, it has all the features I need.

    Pros: Great sound quality and features for the price.

    Cons: USB limitations. Although a con I've worked around it. Through the USB port, device is limited to 128 albums/folders and 500 tracks per album/folder (64000 tracks total). The track total isn't the issue, its mainly the limited album/folder limit. You have to get creative if you want your entire library to play through the USB port.

    Purchased for older vehicle, therefore didn't want to spend to much. More interested in good quality in sound and reception than other options, i.e. chose HD over Bluetooth. Buying from Crutchfield was helpful since the price was good and they supplied almost everything needed for installation, with piece of mind should I have any problems with product or install. Have only had the Radio for a week now but very happy with it. Thought about buying new speakers with the Radio order, then decided to wait and see how it sounded with the OEM speakers. Glad I waited, adjusting the LPF and the HPF along with the LPF REV have given me the sound quality I was hoping to gain without the cost and hassle of putting in new speakers. Also found the DSO adjustments work very well with the convertible, raising same when I put the top down. CD's and HD radio sound great and receive several HD stations in my area. Hence, have not needed to try the USB or AUX functions yet, but nice to have these options when we leave the area. Do not usually take the time to submit reviews, so the fact that I have now shows how pleased I'am with the product and Crutchfield, highly recommend both.

    Pros: Sound quality with enough adjustments to customize the sound and look of the unit. Favorite options are the Low and High Pass Filters, LPF Reverse, Dynamic Soundstage Organizer, Auto Scroll, Contrast and Dimmer adjustments

    Cons: Wiring instructions were not very helpful to me, called the Tech number to verify a couple of things prior to actually placing the unit in the vehicle. Would have liked a few more color options but the blue for day and the green for nights works well. Reading the small controls is difficult for me but becoming familiar with the unit will take care of that problem.

    The Sony receiver was a real improvement to my factory sound system. The sound quality is great, ability to pick up weak FM stations is very good, and the CD player and Ipod touch USB connection is great.

    Pros: Great product and worth the investment. I installed the receiver myself and it was very easy following the instructions and the posi-connectors made the electrical connections easy to hook up.

    Cons: The small selector switches are hard to see and use, but only because my eyesight is not what it used to be based on my age (69). I have found the remote is easier to see and use.

    I needed a replacement cd player for my '91 F250 chore truck. Let me say for the price, performance, and installation ease, It can't be beat. I'm in the process of changing my mobile music to a hand held device so the external 2.0 usb port is a great convenience for on the go tunes. Thanks again to all of the staff from purchase to installation help for being patient, funny, knowledgeable, and above all professional.

    I have used Sony equipment for 30 years or more and have had generally positive experiences with their gear. This radio builds on the car audio head units I have had over the years. This is my first foray into HD radio and I find that the features and sound quality from this Sony deck is as good as some of the more expensive gear I have bought from Sony before. Since I am fairly well used to the control placement and function on Sony car radios, this one is as easy to use as my others. I really like the option of being able to plug a flash drive directly into the front of the unit and have the deck itself handle the mp3 files. The front mounted aux input is also a welcomed upgrade. Installation was as easy as any other stereo head unit, especially with the Crutchfield installation parts and instructions. The Sony installation documentation is well written and easy to understand. Wiring drawings are concise.

    Pros: Front mounted USB port. Front mounted AUX input. HD radio tuner built in and ready to play.

    Cons: They can lose that infernal beeping that tells you that the faceplate has been left on after turning the key off. It has been on all the Sony head units I've bought in the last 6 or 8 years and while it may be a security feature, it's an annoyance I can do without on my next Sony head unit.

    I just wanted a radio that was digital, had a usb port and had a Sirius port. This radio was one of the least expensive options. The install was simple and quick. Crutchfield instructions and install kit are always top notch. The radio sounds great and is working like a charm. I gave it 5 stars. For the price, this is an awesome radio - I don't really find the cons all that big of a deal.

    Pros: Awesome having a usb port in the front of the unit. Allows for decent control of my iPhone and iPod. Also lets us listen to books on tape from a usb dongle. Allows for deep file directory options when naming usb dongle files. Did that make sense?

    Cons: Newer radios have a toggle on the volume nob that one uses to access menu options. I seem to always press the volume nob when I reach over to turn the volume up or down. Not really a con for this model as opposed to others, just a pia. I agree with other that the menus are a little un-intuitive. Just takes some getting used to...

    I bought this for my 96 Geo Tracker. This is my first HD stereo, and so far I am impressed. The sound is great, and the unit is easy to use. I love the fact that it has a front USB, and aux. input jack. I also believe that Sony receivers are superior to others; they always seem to pick up stations at greater distances. Crutchfield supplied all the necessary small items to install this head unit for free! Installation was extremely easy with the supplied instuctions.

    Pros: Sound quality Ease of opperation Front USB Front aux. input

    Cons: Does not support Microsoft Zune via USB. However, the Zune can be charged with the USB port while using the front input jack to use.

    I love this unit, far better than the factory one in my truck. I am not a kid, so coolness is not big with me. Functionality and performance are all that matter. My only complaint is the same with all aftermarket radios - they have so many features that it is hard for my old eyes to read the text printed on the unit. So there is a learning curve for me before my familiarity can take over.

    Pros: Huge number of features, love being able to access so much music on a USB device.

    Cons: Almost none - only as I stated above that the small text printed on the controls is difficult for my older eyes to read.

    You need fingers like a small child to work this thing. Sony tried to cram too much into a small format making it a true pain. Also, Sony has for the last few models installed the annoying power off chime that can not be turned off.

    Theres no question. Sony makes the best head units. This thing pumps.

    Pros: Being able to control an ipod or flash drive right through the HU. Looks awesome!!

    Cons: The green lighting is disappointing. It is not nearly as vibrant as the blue lighting. The green is less harsh at night though. I dislike that every time you revisit the "browZer" you must go back and find the playlist you were in before. it does not just go back into the playlist you are playing music from.

    excellent value and great sound. bass response is very good, made my mirrors shake on certain passages, don't think i need a subwoofer the bass is completely satisfactory. usb port is great, hd radio is great, cd runs well, took four hours to install. instructions were excellent, initially the unit ran but the speakers did not play. there was one vehicle wire that was not covered by i called tech support and the agent knew the answer where to put it and get the speakers going. very satisfied.

    Pros: see above

    This is my second one of these. The first one went into my Honda Civic some time ago and this one into my wife's Kia Sportage LX. Crutchfield made it super easy for me to install it. They gave me for free,with the purchase, a wiring harness adapter, dashboard trim and an install master sheet. I was kind of concerned about hidden screws etc... but the master install sheet showed me where everything was located in simple easy to follow instructions. The wiring harness adapter was right on and the dashboard trim was a perfect fit. From start to finish I was done in about 30 minutes. This head unit does everything except feed the dog and wash your car. One piece of info the Crutchfield web site left out is that this unit has a BUS input which means it can be hooked up to a Sony source selector and/or a Sony 10 Disc CD Changer in addition to about a million other things. You can't beat the price for what it does. I love the "Zappin" feature but it takes some getting used to. My daughter can play music from her cell phone through the AUX input and it has a built-in Ipod controller. The head unit gives me the choice of the driver or passenger controlling the music from the iPod after it is hooked up. (iPod Classic 6th Gen.) Mainly I use the USB port. I use a 4GB mini flash drive which sits almost flush with face. It sticks up about 1/4 in. from the face and since it is black it fits right in. It stores about 300 songs from my computer. The HD Radio is also a plus.

    Pros:

    Cons: Only 2 cons but not a deal breaker. When driving in bright sunlight the face gets washed out and is real hard to see. I tried adjusting the contrast but to no avail. Secondly, You only have a choice of 2 colors for illumination which shows around the large knob and some of the controls on the far left. BLUE is way to bright and distracting at night and does not dim when you turn on your headlights. The only part of the face that dims is the display. The green color is much better.

    First let me state that I have had this unit in my vehicle for over 2 years. It was a breeze to install courtesy of the installation guide and pieces provided by Crutchfield (they've never let me down!). Prior to purchasing this receiver I had only purchased Pioneer, although I had tried and tested numerous other offerings by different brands both in this car and in previous cars as well. That being said, I originally purchased this receiver because it had 1) USB port, 2) HD Radio, 3) Buttons instead of a knob to adio stations, etc, 4) sub input, and 5) value. I have been very satisfied with my purchase, but there are some 'cons' to consider as well. PROS : - The USB port is extremely useful, not only to use an MP3 player through, but it can also charge your phone in a pinch! Being able to control the mp3 player and select songs, etc directly from the receiver is quite convenient. If you don't have a USB cord handy, you can use the AUX-in jack which is great, though obviously this method requires you to use the attached source to navigate your music. - I've never had any problems with the CD player and it does very well in relatively bumpy terrain, having only skipped a few times over the years. - As expected, the buttons are extremely convenient when wanting to switch between radio stations. Much easier to navigate than a knob which many other receivers have started using (see Cons too)

    Pros: ADDITIONAL PROS : (ran out of space) - It's remarkably easy to change the level of subwoofer bass via the sub level input. - HD radio, when in range, adds more radio stations if available in your area - I purchased this a few years ago, and for the price I'd say this is still a great value! - Color schemes are cool, though I stick with green because it's easier on the eyes during night driving (also matches better). I'm 28, not 60, and blue is wayy too bright @

    Cons: CONS : - The most heavily used radio buttons have become hard to press / unresponsive. I expected this to happen eventually, but NOT so soon. - HD radio can be extremely annoying at times. While some stations sound better in HD, others sound worse due to diminishing quality to squeeze more stations on the same frequency. Worse, HD will simply cut-out instead of becoming more 'static-y' like normal radio. I wish I could disable it sometimes when I'm on the fringe of the stations' range.

    Very good unit for the money. Improved sound quality vs my old factory radio, especially on the HD radio stations. Love the USB input for ipod, which also charges when connected. Crutchfield tech support was top notch, making installation pretty easy.

    Pros: Decent sound quality, remote control easy to operate, looks cool.

    Cons: Some controls on the radio are a little confusing to operate, but this is probably just a matter of getting used to.

    Only reservation is small buttons lead to some navagation issues, once dialed in it ROCKS!.

    Pros: Sound is as good as it gets, radio really pull's in weak stations. Plays every type of media I could ever want to use and in a manner one would be very hard preesed to out do at twice the price.

    Cons: None any, well maybe the smallish buttons and longish delay in start up with radio or media, worth the wait though once the sound kicks in.

    After 12 years of the stock radio, I used a blown speaker as an excuse to replace the head unit with this one. Overall, I'm impressed with the sound, the look and the features of the unit. They could always put more features (bluetooth, anyone?) in, but at this price I'm happy.

    Pros: No CD slot means more display area. Good sound options with plenty of ways to tweak what comes out of the speakers. Look and feel says quality.

    Cons: Controls and menus aren't as intuitive as some I've seen, but once you read the manual it's easy enough to remember how to get where you want to go.

    So far I am really happy with this head-unit. When I first saw this head-unit I knew I had to get it. I am still impressed with how awesome this thing looks. In my opinion it looks so unique compared to other head-units. The light behind the volume scroller just makes this thing pop. The HD Radio is cool and all but there is only one radio station in my area that broadcasts HD Radio. Supposedly there are only 2000 radio stations across the United States that broadcasts HD Radio. If HD Radio starts to get bigger in the future, the built in HD Radio in this unit will be an awesome feature, but for now its just kind of a "cool idea" and not much more. I really like the large display on this unit compared to other single-din displays. I will rarely use the actual cd-player, so hiding it behind the faceplate to give more room for the display is fine by me. Zappin can be useful when I want to make sure I keep my eyes on the road and is basically just a scroll button for your iPod (when it is plugged in the USB port). The USB port is very useful. Of course these days USB ports are basically a normality but compared to some other USB ports, this one DOES charge your iPod while plugged in. If it didn't I would have been very upset. When reading online about how to navigate this unit, it is a much more complicated than when you actually start navigating it. I've had to refer to the directions a few times but overall it is very easy to navigate the unit. Overall, very satisfied!!!

    Pros: Large front display with cd player hidden behind faceplate. Easy to use. Looks really slick.

    Cons: No Bluetooth

    In general it has been a good unit for me. I love having the HD Radio and yes, there is a delay between tuning the station and it switching to HD radio and then being able to tune to the HD sub-channels. I use the USB all the time for iPod connection and once you learn the interface it works just fine. I also use the aux connector to connect to my Android-based phone and the portable DVD players the kids use on long trips. I saw several reviews complaining about the display brightness and I'm guessing they haven't read the manual to find the settings for the auto-dimming when the headlights are on, or changing it to green. I do wish it had a few other colors to try, but this is fine. My main issue with the unit was that it died yesterday after nearly two years of service. I'm guessing it overheated or something, but it is now quite dead. But the quality, price and performance of the unit until yesterday has been wonderful, so I'll be ordering the same thing as a replacement. Make the installation of the new unit a lot easier. :) I'm even considering one for my wife's car, mostly because of the HD, USB and aux connectors.

    Pros: Inexpensive HD radio built-in USB / iPod control and aux connectors on the front work well

    Cons: Why on earth do you need a remote control in a car?? Aren't you right there?? Display could be better, not sure why they still use discrete elements for the letters instead of a matrix. Be nice if it tuned HD faster, or if you could preset to HD, but the HD works well otherwise.

    Great Deal /Great Product!

    Always been a huge Sony car audio person and Sony hasn't disappointed me yet. Had my last head unit since 2004 and it just recently " gave it up". Found the CDX GT700HD for an amazing price. Head unit plug from my last unit plugged right into new unit with out having to cut or change anything. The new unit pro forms just as we'll as he last and hopefully just as long. Would definitely recommend this unit.

    Pros: Uses the same head unit plug as well as all inputs and outputs as old unit if swapping to another Sony unit even after 8 yrs. Easy to navigate and operate. Great audio control .

    Cons: As mentioned before the blue display is quit intense but I've always preferred green myself

    Intuitive controls that feel solid. No floppy part. Settings are from reset but simple manual explains well. I especially appreciate the cd insert that is behind the face plate, since I don't use the cd. Impressed by high definition sound for this old guy.

    Having a couple weeks to play with this, I can say that I am very pleased. You really do get a lot for your money. Mind you though, It is missing some of the frills of the more costlier units out there, like Bluetooth, or to be able to use the device to make calls thorough your connected iPhone, which I suppose goes hand in hand with Bluetooth. Installation was a breeze, the only thing that really took my time was wiring up the harness, which took about 15 minutes. The build quality of this Sony is amazing. Just holding the unit or the faceplate, and you'll notice that this is definitely not cheaply made. Clean song, with a lot of sound customizations to play with, such as the DSO, which made my cheap, factory speakers come to life! You also have the ability to control your iPod or iPhone directly from the unit itself, which is nice when you have your iDevice tucked away in a glove box. The HD radio is also neat to have, with the clear digital reception, and the ability to see on the screen the artist, album, or any other info on the music playing that the station puts out in their HD stream. Of course, there are some HD stations that put out no info at all. I put it at 4 stars on ease of use just due to controlling your iDevice from the unit is not super straight forward, and it uses the radio preset buttons to accomplish some of the tasks, which can be a bit frustrating when driving and the labels on the little buttons are hard to read. All in all, good buy.

    Pros: HD Radio, Remote, Sub Output, HPF and LPF filters, detachable Face, Powerful Sound, Plenty Audio Customizations and it's a Sony!

    Cons: Small radio preset buttons that have multiple functions which can be hard to read.

    The product is excellent once you learn how to use all the buttons. The hardest part is connecting the wiring for the harness. the sound quality is excellent, I installed it with my infinity sound system and it works great. I like the Itunes capability and the equalizer adjustments you can make. Overall it is a great choice for the money!

    Pros: Sound quality and muliple choice for output and ability to attach ipod, Iphone and usb flash drive to play music.

    Cons: The directions for the wiring harness are not easy for the novice.

    I bought this unit for two reasons: 1) I think Sony has the best radio tuners out there, and 2) this unit has built-in HD radio for less than the cost of the HD radio add-on tuner. I don't think you can beat this receiver for value. It's the last unit with CD changer controls, works with the XA-120IP iPod adapter and add-on satellite radio tuners, and has both an aux input *plus* a USB input right there on the faceplate. It has the basic segmented alphanumeric display instead of fancy graphics, but this is one of the things keeping the price down. Unless you can't live without an animated screen display, you won't be disappointed.

    Pros: Backwards compatible with almost all Unilink devices, allows both HD and satellite radio AND an iPod all connected at the same time, excellent radio tuner, built-in CD player.

    Cons: EQ is only 3-band (plus loudness); panel only lights up in 2 colors (blue or green) -- otherwise I would have given sound quality and coolnees factor a 5 instead of a 4.

    I bought this especially so I could put music and podcasts on a USB flash drive and pop it into the stereo for a long commute. Works perfectly, easily controls the flash drive and shows the name of each item on the screen. You can quickly scroll through the MP3's of various kinds, and it doesn't have problems with or even display any files that aren't usable on a stereo (like Word documents, etc.) Easy to see the screen. Still a bunch of features I'll eventually have to learn how to use, but for now, it sounds good, tunes in stations well in our relatively remote area, and controls a flash drive well with no effort. Installation does require connecting a lot of wires to the adaptor. Front panel doesn't feel super-sturdy, but certainly doesn't feel like its about to fall off or super-cheap, either.

    Pros: Easy to use a flash drive full of music and podcasts

    Cons: Installation not for an absolute beginner.

    I replaced the original XM radio in our RV with the Sony CDX-GT700HD unit. We didn't want the hassel of transfering the XM service from our car to the RV everytime we went camping nor did we want the added expense of another XM service contract. So we opted for the Sony unit that offers the Ipod solution which has proven to be the perfect application for us. We get the AM/FM (with added HD element) as well as uninturpted music of our choice via the Ipod.

    Pros: Low cost solution to access our favorite uninturpted music. Better looking unit than the original OEM unit.

    Cons: Can be difficult for the driver to navigate the Sony's tiny buttons (difficult to see, easy to select the wrong button).

    took it out of the box and wired it onto my boat. This unit replaced a 10 year old sony unit. Pretty much plugged into my wiring that was already there.

Also a usb inlet and an acc. input that I am using for my XM docking station.

    I love this head unit. Looks awesome in my cobalt. The black fits In perfect with my dash. I love the blue too. That's the color theme of my car. Sound quality is great. I'm running all aftermarket. Alpine type r 6x9's and 6.5's which are hooked up to a Rockford Fosgate PBR300x4. Then I have a 10" Digital Design 2510 hooked up to an Mtx Jackhammer jh600. She screams. Way better than my stock head unit. No more having to worry about the head unit distorting. This is definatly a product that you want to read the manual to get all the info.

    Pros: 6 pre amp outs. HD radio, easy iPod/iPad use. Install was super easy. Looks great. For the price, this headinit has a ton of features. I love Sony headunits. They are amazing.

    Cons: No android support which is cool. I have my iPod classic 160 gig for that. Doesn't charge the new iPad but it needs a ton of power. But it dose make it hold a charge so it won't die. Other than that it's just perfect.

The reception is indeed better, but would be even more improved with the addition of an external antenna. I don't know if my wife will allow that. The sound quality isn't great, but that's probably a function of the factory speakers. (Why you'd put a $100 factory radio in a $20,000 car is beyond me.) In any event, if you want booming bass, you'll need an external amplifier. It also comes with a removable front plate (for anti-theft). Build quality? I haven't owned it long enough to know. (So far the front anti-theft plate isn't coming off.)

    Pros: Good radio reception (that's what I bought it for). Also has CD player and a USB connection for home generated play lists.

    Cons: The front is so shiney, it make the display difficult to read. The display doesn't adjust to make it as bright as it should be. The OFF button and Volume are the only controls whose functions are obvious, all the rest require a learning curve (Hint: You turn it on with the SELECT button).

    - worked well for just over a year. functions easy to navigate through. easy to change songs, stations, volume, etc. BUT, unit failed one day when snapping on the face plate, like i do every morning on the way to work. one day it's fine, the next, it won't come out of "demo" mode and Crutchfield tech support says it's now a paperweight. all in all, TERRIBLE build quality. this unit is not supposed to fail, when performing an advertised feature, of removing and re-attaching the faceplate.

    Pros: - looks cool, and produces great sound.

    Cons: - didn't last very long, and a waste of my money. since this is now the third SONY unit that has failed on me over the years, i won't be buying their products again. their build quality is on the decline.

    Bought this for my Sons car. A 2001 Honda CRV. I like to buy through Crutchfield because you get everything in one box. Car specific instulation instructions, wiring harness, faceplate and free shipping . Price was good too.

    Pros: Price, Ease of instulation thanks to the instructions, great selection of car specific stereo models, and fast shipping.

    This Sony HD radio is very nice. The big display is a plus in bright sunlight, but the combined volume/function dial means I often get kicked into the sound control menu when I just wanted to raise or lower the volume. The little remote that comes with this radio allows volume, track and channel changes, so I should get used to using that instead when on the road. Sound quality is superb. It has an ambiance setting which, with rear speakers (I installed these to improve the poor door speakers in my Nissan Frontier), makes an amazing soundstage. How do they do that? Wow. Very nice that a USB flashdrive can be popped into the unit -- I have 8 gigs of jazz ready at all times. A real plus when the trash talk and obnoxious ads on the radio overwhelms. HD radio works great and sounds great.

    Pros:

    Cons:

    Really good receiver!

    My second CDX-GT700. Previous unit went away with the sale of the vehicle, so when I wanted to replace another factory head unit, this was a logical choice. Very versitile, relatively easy to use and lots of features.

    Pros: Compact attractive appearnace, very versitile, easy (relatively) to use controls.

    Cons: None

    I bought this and I was a little concerned as some of the reviews stated low power and I drive a noisy Chrysler 2005 T&C. After I installed it along with the replacement front door speakers, I found the sound level is more than enough for my use. I can turn it up to too loud even on the quiet pieces. Another concern I had after I read a few reviews was the display was not adjustable - background too bright. While I found the blue just right for I bright day, it is really annoying a night, too bright, however if I switch to the green it is just right for nighttime viewing. So I use blue for day and green for night and problem solved. I really like the sound spaciousness when I set them from the audio menu. I do find the single knob control a little cumbersome/confusing to use, but this is not a big deal as I set it out before I start driving and you don't need to make changes while driving so it is another problem solved. Overall I am glad I purchased this receiver. The price made me a little wary, but I need not have been, because I feel I got more than I paid for. The only thing I would have liked to have is hands free Bluetooth and I could not find one that would have AM/FM; CD; HD;USB; and all of the sound conditioning and blue tooth at this price or even higher. Thank for a great product Sony.

    Pros: AM/FM; CD; HD;USB; and all of the sound conditioning

    Cons: No bluetooth.

    Let me start off by saying thanks to Crutchfield for their fast shipping, service and selection. I installed this in a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The install was a breeze. I put this unit in my daughter Jeep. I had pre-wired it prior to taking it to her house. This thing took me twenty minutes at the most. Crutchfield provided everything I needed for the install. The sound quality is great, plenty of inputs and the HD is well worth the extra money. She lives in a metro area that has several HD channels. The quality of HD is great. As most know, some Jeeps are notorious for electrical problems. We are having trouble with the passenger's side door locks and windows not working at times. Anybody with any knowledge of where to locate the problem would be appreciated. Thanks Crutchfield :)

    Pros: Build Quality is good. HD Sound is fantasic ! Lots of features built in unit. Fair price, plus Crutchfield provides everything you need to install. Ipod features are cool !

    Cons: None.

    I have had it in for about a week, great quality of sound. The navigating and adjusting of the stereo, weither it is the speaker outputs or the navigationg of input source isnt the easiest that Sony has come up with. The buttons are somewhat small and cludered but it does come with a remote, which is a life saver if you do alot of driving. Unlike one reviewer, I have had no problem with visibility of the display during the day, but that may also result in the vehicle its in. Their are a many stereos out there but this one has been a good bang for the buck to me. I shopped around and you may find the price maybe 10 bucks less but you still have to buy the adapters and install kits, which equals more than here. First purchase with Crutchfield and loved the fact everything I needed, the wiring harness, dash kit and everything was included in the price of the stereo. I will definitly buy my stereo stuff here from now on.

    Pros: Value, Sound, Pretty cool, has remote, and you know quality is there, its a Sony isnt it?

    Cons: small buttons

    Pretty good, not bad, I can't complain...

    First off, I want to say that I ordered this unit yesterday, President's Day, at around noon. I had it completely installed and set up by 3:00p.m. today! Hats off to Crutchfields and UPS. OK, it sounds a lot better then the factory unit that it replaced in my 1999 Ranger. The radio gets better reception, and the HD is terrific here. The CD player sounds great. I hooked it up to my iPad and though pretty clunky to navigate with it, it sounds great. I haven't tried it with an iPod yet. There is virtually no distortion in either mode. Now, I also hooked up XM Radio via an older Delphi Roady XT and run it through the front auxiliary jack. This was a major reason why I bought this unit. The Roady had transmitted via the cassette deck on the factory unit and the deck died. I incorrectly thought that I could run the Roady in a source jack in the back. No big deal. Anyway, after setting the volume switchover control the Roady sounds better then it ever did. So in summary, I'm thrilled with the sound quality of the FM/HD tuner, CD, iPad, and the XM peripheral. Installation was a breeze, though I'm glad that I called Crutchfield's support line about the dimmer wire when I was connecting the harness. It saved me a lot of time. The set up took more time then the installation. There's too much information, but it's done, and I think I've got all the pertinent info down pat. I don't like the faceplate, it feels cheap. I also don't like the fold down step for the CD, but no big deal.

    Pros: Value, sound quality, features. The display light issues that others fussed about don't bother me.

    Cons: As stated above, I'm not crazy about the faceplate arrangement, but I rarely listen to CD's anymore so it probably won't be much of an issue.The beeping when you turn off your ignition is an irritation, but I can live with it. Also, everything really is crammed in, but what're gonna do with something that has so many features?

    I was amazed at how incredible my 8 year old stock speakers sounded in my F-250 truck with this receiver. I was fully anticipating needing to replace them but this receiver breathed new life into them. This unit is extremely easy to install and the directions for use are easy as well. You won't be disappointed with this unit! Also, Crutchfield is so easy to deal with - I don't even bother with retail stores anymore - Crutchfield has all my electronic business.

    Well you have tiny fingers then this is for you. I drive at night an the search button is next to the source button and while lessening to my iPod I will hit the source button instead of the seek button. Now I have fm music playing. Taking my eyes off the road to find the source button again to find the iPod again made me frustrated.

    Pros: Nice volume knob solid feel . Synced with the iPod easily

    Cons: Tiny buttons all in one area makes selections difficult. Looking to get an Alpine and try that, the buttons are much larger.

    Really easy to use system and solid with decent sound. My only complaint was not being able to tone down the colored light on the system. The blue was way to bright. I changed it to the only other option of green just to tone it down. I would recommend and buy again. I like the flip down face to put the cd in. It makes for bigger letters on the screen. Getting around the menu is easy. Input from ipod/iphone works great and lets you control through the stereo. I have not yet tried just a USB drive.

    Pros: Everything worked, easy to navigate.

    Cons: 2 colors lights to choose from and the blue is really bright.

    My 99 Silverado is great in every dept except for the sound system. It needed an update and when I found Crutchfield, the process to find the perfect unit was a breeze. So easy, I was worried. However when I received the unit the hardest part was splicing the wires from the harness adapter onto the new unit. Other than that, it was maybe an hour to install. The HD radio is AMAZING and the USB connector is a MUST HAVE- the headphone jack sound quality is 3rd world in comparison to the USB (which is a straight digital connection into the unit)teh ability to control my iPod via the unit or on my iPod is cool too. This is my only negative: Navigating through playlists, songs, artists, albums is a bit cryptic and takes some serious reading of the manual. Its not at all intuitive. Other than that- PLENTY of power, sound shaping options, and everything is AMAZING, AMAZING, AMAZING!

    Pros: Everything but...

    Cons: ... iPod navigation using the head unit.

    I liked this CD receiver and had no problems with it for about a year. Now, every time I remove the faceplate the receiver completely locks up and I have to reset it using the reset button. This of course removes all of your settings, including changing the nice green lighting color back to the ridiculously blinding blue. The last time it happened, the "Off" button was acting as if it were the "Source" button and I couldn't even turn the thing off to set the clock. A very frustrating experience.
