Rated 5 out of 5 by Truckman My Stereo Upgrade
This stereo is an upgrade to another Sony turner/cassette player in my car (XR-C6120). I didn't really research any other stereos prior to purchasing my new stereo/tuner. Sony is a trusted brand. What I like most about this stereo is the ease of installation and setup. Pairing my Bluetooth devices was a snap, and what I particularly enjoy is the hands free voice controls, and as an added bonus, the option to change the illumination color to match my dash illumination. This is a great stereo and I can't say that I am surprised with it's sound quality. In my opinion, Sony has always seem to put first performance and sound quality in all of their products, not just Marine and Automotive but all. I am extremely pleased with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fyca Great Stereo. Small Price Tag!!
After reviewing many stereos with the same price range and features I finally settled on this stereo because of the many great reviews I had read about it. Although I did read a few negative reviews where the complaints were mostly about how hard it was to tune the stereo. Well after I installed my new stereo I tested the sound with 4 1/2" door and sill speakers. Without any tuning the stereo sounded better than any other stereo I have purchased, I used to be a Pioneer only guy. (Great work Sony you have earned my business) Then I got into the menus and found the C.AUDIO feature which really made the sound even better. Now after having this stereo for a couple months I have no major complaints. The small complaints I do have is actually about the APP REMOTE software for Android phones. The app remote should allow me to search through my songs in Play Music, but using the stereo interface and not have to go to my phone to do so. The other being Pandora, I should be able to see and search through my stations without having to look at the phone and without having to turn my source over to BT Pandora. An update to the APP REMOTE software would be really awesome. Besides that I have no other complaints. I would recommend this stereo to anyone who wants an advanced stereo in their vehicle with great sound quality and who is still on a budget. I will be purchasing another stereo of the exact same model for my truck shortly.

Had an expensive panasonic.And this radio blows it away. My only concern is that I have not figured out how to use the NFC option. Right now I have to pair the phone every time I get in the truck.

My husband gave me this Sony Receiver w/Bluetooth for my recent birthday. I absolutely love it! I really like the hands-free phone feature because I have a 45-60 minute commute (morning and evening). In addition, I am really enjoying that I can connect my ipod to the receiver and can play Pandora through the bluetooth feature. Very happy indeed and would highly recommend this receiver!

Rated 5 out of 5 by masterbejar Best receiver I have ever had at this price
This is an awesome unit. I had another unit that died after several years. I switched to this Sony head unit and love it. My favorite feature is the bluetooth. I listen to all my podcasts through it. Also, I was able to set up the hands free feature rather easily. I installed it in the B pillar of my truck and the only thing you can see is the little microphone. Works great and people say they can hear me great. I saw another review about the FM reception and I haven't noticed any difference. Overall great product. Hoping it lasts a while (got the epic warranty from Best Buy either way!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by 911bad Best I've ever had!
I think it is user friendly unlike some people. It has very efficient power. Sound quality and clarity is outstanding with the eq to fine tune your speakers. With the options and accessories it has I would have expected a much more expensive price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JoeMamma I really liked the deck itself. However all the door speakers started cutting out randomly for minutes / days at a time. All sound would cut out except the subs. Sony handled the warranty claim exceptionally well. They didn't have this deck in stock so they refunded me my full purchase price after providing the necessary documents. After reading other reviews I think mine was a "chance" problem and not a common issue. I took the refund and ordered a new one off eBay.
