Our take on the Sony CDX-GT710HD

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.

You love radio

Well, maybe not everything about radio. You'd like it if your favorite FM stations had stronger lows, better highs, and more detail, and you get tired of the tinny sound of AM. And for that matter, having a little more choice in programming would be cool, too.

HD Radio™ to the rescue

Help is at hand with Sony's CDX-GT710HD CD receiver, which comes equipped with a built-in HD Radio tuner. This technology allows participating radio stations to broadcast a digital signal with superior sonic characteristics and more features to compatible radios. You won't pay anything extra for the broadcasts, and you don't have to learn any new tricks. Just turn on the radio and tune it in. If your favorite station broadcasts an HD Radio signal, you'll enjoy FM that's like listening to a CD, and AM sound quality that rivals your old FM station. And many HD Radio stations support multi-casting — letting you tune in secondary or tertiary channels on the same frequency. So if you're tired of music, you can tune in the news (or vice versa).

Sony CDX-GT710HD

You can customize this receiver's display and button colors to match your car or taste.

CD playback, USB, and Pandora®

You can play all your favorite CDs, of course, and the front-panel USB input accepts most iPod® and iPhone® models. Plug in your player and you'll be able to control your favorite playlists right from the receiver. And if you've discovered the joys of streaming music, you can control Pandora® Internet radio stations from the receiver when your iPhone is connected.

Serious audio and visual options

Sophisticated sound controls, including a 7-band equalizer and a suite of Sony sound-enhancing tools, will blow away those bass and treble controls on your old radio. You can adjust the color of this Sony's display and controls to match your car's interior, or even have the lights of the receiver pulse with the sound of the music when you're ready to kick off a mobile rave.

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 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 to see all compatible adapters.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I returned this radio due to the volume control would stick when I got it really loud and not go down. I feel it is to complicated to make sound adjustments on the fly while driving. I replaced it with a Alpine. Very happy with it. So much easier to navigate.
    Pros:
    HD Radio
    Cons:
    Complicated to navigate sound settings.

    The gt710 is the best deck I've had so far, it lets me push my system to new limits and looks great. With basic tools and wiring knowledge anyone could install it, plus with Crutchfield's vehicle specific information it comes with everything you need.
    Pros:
    Easy to use and install. Colors look good, it lets you adjust almost everything in your system.
    Cons:
    None.

    For my 2004 Silverado

    Written By Joe, Raleigh NC on Saturday, August 09, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I bought the radio and the wiring harness. It came with a mounting bracket, emailed instructions and antenna adapter, all of which made putting this radio in a breeze. I was concerned that the buttons would be too small but they have a good "feel" to them and does not now seem to be an issue. Most of the setup was intuitive and I was able to do without looking at the manual, which BTW covers the operation and setup very well. The sound is very good on the factory speakers and I am sure will even better with better speakers. The different colors that you can set up in it allows you to personalize it and looks cool. the size of the letters is big enough to see at a glance. I want to thank Kyle on the other end of the phone for his help. Crutchfield live up to its rep. Also the FM reception on this radio is better than the factory one, and it was not too bad. the USB port door is a door, not a flap as I have seen on other radios. It flips to the side and into the face, very little to no chance that it could get broke off.
    Pros:
    Good reception, most controls easy to find by feel and then use
    Cons:
    the mounting bracket does not have a little pocket to put your I-pod or phone

    Very Well Rounded Unit

    Written By Anonymous, Jacksonville, NC on Saturday, May 31, 2014
     
    I have always trusted sony head units. I have had two consecutive don't heads installed in E36 BMW's and could not be happier with the results. Works very well with factory stereo system in car and makes it really come alive if upgrading from stock. Only reason for 4 star coolness factor is that it's not a double DIN nor does it have the cool iPod tray on the inside of it like my other Sony Headunit.
    Pros:
    Boatload of features

    My Honda factory radio died about a year and a half ago, so I finally decided to install an aftermarket unit. Purchased this unit for the features ( HD radio and iPod).

    Wanted to replace the double-DIN factory stereo in my wife's 2000 Subaru Legacy and had looked everywhere for a suitable unit. When I found this at Crutchfield, I ordered it immediately. The included instructions and dash kit made installation a breeze - finished it all in about 2 hours. Excellent sound. loaded with features like Pandora, USB, AUX, and Sirius/XM ready, and remote control - this unit is a great value!
    Pros:
    Good power output, clean sound, ability to fine-tune the sound, and easy to install.
    Cons:
    The menu settings are a little tricky to get used to but the manual explains the process very well. Buttons are a bit small for my fingers.

    It was long overdue replacing my OEM radio/CD player/cassette player in my Grand Cherokee Ltd. It was dying of old age. Choosing a replacement was making me nuts,so I went with this Sony. I wasn't disappointed Great sound quality and a variety of features that exceeded my expectations. Especially for the price. No more screwing around with adapters to use my iPod.
    Pros:
    iPod and Satellite radio ready. Looks as great as it sounds. Immediately bought new rear speakers to match the sound quality.
    Cons:
    A bit lengthy for me on installation, and that's about it, except for learning how to program the thing.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    This is my first after market car steor that I've installed in years so I don't have much of a reference. However, compared to my factory box it is awesome.
    Pros:
    The Satelite radio sound is close to CD quality. The CD sound is very clear. Even the radio sound is better than factory. There are tons of great features. Having integrated satelite radio; tuner, cd,and other sources is a big plus. Installation was a wiz with the parts and instructions provided by Crutchfield. Integration (extra cost) with steering wheel controls works well. Having 3 sets of 6 push buttons for EACH source input is handy..
    Cons:
    Using the setup controls is a bit confusing; Does not resort to showing time if display is set to show song name or artist.

    Does almost everything I wanted.

    Written By Pontiacracer, San Antonio on Friday, November 29, 2013
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    All the parts and pieces I needed were included in the package. The Crutchfield people are on their game. As to the radio, it has all the features I wanted. Aux line in for my MP-3 player and even a USB where I can use a thumb drive filled with my music. Problem is, many functions you might use regularly are deep in many menus making in complex to make changes while driving. It IS a car stereo after all. Where else would you make changes to the stereo? The other issue is once you get to the item you want to use, you have to back out of that menu through as many as it took to get there. It would be nice to have some sort of "home" function to get back to the volume settings.

    Complexity is becoming an issue to many products these days. It's nice that there are so many things you can change. But, if all you want to do is make some simple change in settings, you need to scroll through too many menus to get there.
    Pros:
    Powerful sounds, the ability to plug in several different devices to listen to through the stereo. Some might love the ability to change colors of the display. I think I'd rather they either cut the cost by eliminating that feature or add something a bit more useful for your listening tastes.
    Cons:
    Complex menus that are not easy to back out of. That makes it a but unsafe to use while driving.

    Excellent Receiver

    Written By uscgqm, Poulsbo, WA on Saturday, November 23, 2013
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    After an easy install, especially with the instructions sent from Crutchfield, and taking some time to learn the buttons and menus of a new receiver (especially one with even more functionality than what I had) I am thoroughly enjoying this Sony. You can make it sound however you want and customize the heck out of colors and brightness on the display and buttons. I still tend to fat finger the buttons every once in awhile but I get over that easy. The volume wheel is great and just sensitive enough but not too sensitive.
    Pros:
    Lots of customizing options to personalize it, tons of sound adjustments to make it exactly how you want it, large volume wheel that is not too sensitive, HD radio sounds awesome when I'm in an area that gets it and this receiver has pretty much every option except Bluetooth (although a model with Bluetooth is available)
    Cons:
    Some buttons are a bit small and vulnerable to fat finger, does not come with a storage case for the face if you prefer removing that when you park. Source list keeps everything in it even if it is not in use so if your not using USB, Pandora, or Aux it still scrolls through it on your way to what you want (not a big deal but a con never the less)

    USB port on front, nice remote, face readout very nice and easy to read,

    Installation instructions leave a little to be desired, trouble shooting the same. the seek feature does not work most of the time.

    Excellent Experience

    The unit was a perfect fit, looks good, sounds good and was super easy to install. I am NOT a techy person so menus, buttons, dials.... Knowing when to push or turn doesn't come easy. However, a few minutes each evening for three days got it all figured out. The manual to the Sony is easy to follow. The very best part of the experience was during the ordering process everything I needed to install the unit was either included or suggested. So I did need to figure anything out. The best best part was that I forgot to order the connectors for the wiring harness, I called from work the next day, the guy that answered the phone knew exactly who I was, added the connectors to my order... Everything arrived in the same box. Plus... He was super nice and very helpful! Now that's service!

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    The look is just not substantial compared to other models. Next time I will go with Alpine.
    Pros:
    My first install, not hard at all, good support from Crutchfield.
    Cons:
    Buttons are too small and the display is not bright enough for the day

    Sony GT 710HD

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    This replaced an older(10yrs.) Sony -Xplode Cassette model. Guess I'm 'old' school,didn't have a CD changer hookup. This newer model doesn't seem to sound as good? Seems like more distortion. Different colors are cool. Buttons seem kind of flimsy,too small. HD radio is ok. For the price,it'll do.
    Pros:
    Reasonable price for features.
    Cons:
    Sound doesn't seem as good as older model.? Maybe it's 'my' ears. Not CD changer compatible.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    This is my second Sony car stereo purchase of similar design. Well pleased with quality and price.
    Pros:
    Price, name brand, quality, Crutchfield installation instructions
    Cons:
    Tuner signal seems week at times. Additional amplifier needed?

    I will say excellent radio for the price. Easy set up.

    I wanted to burn a cd using iTunes. iTunes has a playback selection in which to burn the cd. Ex. 24x, 48x, maximum etc. I've read forums saying CD players are "picky" in a way about this. What is the best playback speed in which to burn the cd for this model radio? [ Brady  Mar 22, 2014 ]
    1 answer
    • The only thing that should matter is the file type used (ie. mp3 or wpa) and this deck plays both of those types. Speed (24x, 48x, etc) really only effects the sound quality and file size. I haven't had any issue with playing 48x or 128x (which is the iTunes standard and is CD quality) on this deck so far but I did notice slightly worse sound with the 48x CD because the file is simply not as high of quality. If you want the best quality sound coming through your speakers that iTunes can give than go with maximum (128x) which is CD quality and enjoy! But if you want to be able to put more songs on the CD and don't mind losing some sound quality then go with the lower speeds and you should be good. Enjoy! [ JOHN C   Mar 24, 2014 ]

    • You will want to contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat to discuss compatibility with your factory system. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and see if this will integrate. If it does not, then they will also be able to discuss other options with you. [ Jeff Staff  Jan 27, 2014 ]

    • Not sure about the Gen 5's works with the Gen 4. Satisfied with the purchase easy to install and gave my 99 Cobras Mach factory system a little boost. Wife liked it so much were looking at the Sony WX-GT90BT for her. [ CHARLES L   Dec 31, 2013 ]
    • Don't know much about (Generation) I have a (nano) I bought from a local store and I connect it to new radio and it fits perfectly. [ Michael   Dec 30, 2013 ]
    • Sorry Rich, I don't have an Ipod. Contact Sony. [ JEFFREY   Dec 28, 2013 ]
    • I don't have a touch, but it works great with the iPhone 4, 5, and 5s and the original iPad, all of which I have had plugged into mine so I'd bet the iPod would work as well. The USB port even charges the device while you are listening to it. [ JOHN C   Dec 28, 2013 ]
    • Why not just call Crutchfield and ask? I'm not using an I-pod so I really don't know. [ John   Dec 28, 2013 ]
