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.
