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).
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 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.
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.
