Rated 5 out of 5 by SimFord Amazing
Can't believe there isn't a review on this radio already. I decided to try this radio out after not being very happy with a Pioneer and a Kenwood radio last year and cannot say enough good things about it. It may not be as flashy as the other two I tried out, but wow is it better on performance.
For starters, the Bluetooth has much better sound quality than the other two. So much better that it was a little shocking. Much less loss particularly on the lower frequencies. (The App Remote is also pretty cool.)
Audio adjustment options like eq and cross over selection were also way better than the Kenwood but only a little better than the Pioneer. I think the bigger improvement here was the basic speed of the Sony. Fast! Super responsive to any button push or turn of the knob. The USB is able to keep up with me no matter how fast I turn the knob hunting for songs and the Sony music program (kinda like iTunes) is nice and easy to use. I'm actually using it now exclusively on my home PC.
What else is there to say? This radio is fast, easy to use and sounds great. Wish it had a multi-line display but considering the outstanding performance in all other areas I can let that one go.
If you're looking for an easy to use radio with all the basic features, this one is a clear winner.
