App control and killer looks
Sony's App Remote feature lets your iPhone® and the WX-GT80UI CD receiver work together to control select apps. You can use your iPhone's touchscreen to select sources, pick radio stations, and launch apps. At the same time, you can select apps using the receiver's source button, the same way you'd choose the CD player or radio as your source.
And this receiver will look awesome in your dash. The 4" tall front panel offers an expansive display area, with a prominent control knob and colorful backlighting. You can choose from over 35,000 colors to create the perfect look — while the Sound Synchronization feature pulses the illumination in sync with the music.
App Remote lets you select iPhone apps with this Sony's controls, and use your phone as a remote control.
Plenty of media options
The WX-GT80UI is ready for your mobile devices — you can plug your iPhone®, Android™, or Blackberry™ into the front USB input and access your stored music. Plus you can tune in your favorite Pandora® Internet radio stations when your iPhone is connected. You can also connect SiriusXM's compact tuner (not included) to this receiver, and enjoy the exceptional news, talk, sports, and music programs offered on satellite radio. The aux input on the front panel will handle almost any other audio source.
Sound quality that matches the looks
What's the point of installing high-performance car audio equipment if your car stereo only has bass and treble controls? This Sony offers the tools you need to get the most out of your gear. Sony's Digital Music Plus (DM+) enhancer renergizes your compressed music. Then you can tweak your tone curve with the built-in 7-band EQ, while two sets of preamp outputs make it easier to get powerful, clean performance from your amps.
The digital time alignment features allows you to time your speakers to create a perfect stereo "sweet spot." The Rear Bass Enhancer eliminates mids and highs from your rear speakers, pulling the soundstage forward and reinforcing your bass. You can use the low-pass filters to adjust the bass coming from your subs, and the high-pass filters to trim low frequencies out of your full-range speakers so they play more efficiently.
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: The App Remote feature only launches iPhone apps that have been registered with Sony.
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.
