Sony's New Car Audio Receivers Let Your Music Library Ride 'Shotgun'


Just in time for the holiday season, Sony Electronics today announced two Xplod® in-dash CD receivers with a bold design and an auxiliary input on the faceplate.


The new CDX-GT100 CD and CDX-GT200 CD/MP3 receivers make it possible to use portable music players in a vehicle with a standard 1/8" mini jack cord, which is not included.

"With the growing popularity of portable MP3 devices, these Xplod receivers give customers a simple way to connect their players to their car stereos," said Andrew Sivori, Sony's general manager for mobile electronics.

Both models are finished in metallic black with a blue 13-segment LCD display. Each receiver has a detachable faceplate, a built-in 208-watt power amplifier, and a three-band equalizer.

They also feature selectable rear/subwoofer preamp outputs, which can be used to control the frequency and output level of an external amplifier.

The play back options of the CDX-GT100 include CD/CD-R/CD-RW. It is now available at most electronics retailers for about $100.

The CDX-GT200 allows digital music lovers to play back CDs encoded with ATRAC3/3plus™, MP3 and WMA music files. It includes a wireless remote control, and is available at most electronics retailers for about $130.
