Review 1 for Sony Xplod CDX-GT34W Car CD Receiver

Great STEREO! Lots of features & amazing sound!!!

At the beginning of 2013 I was in the market for a new vehicle. The car I actually bought had the Sony Xplod CDX-GT34W stereo recently installed in it. The seller of the car gave me a choice between the Sony Xplod or another Pioneer stereo to go into the car. Having had versions of in car stereo's from both Sony & Pioneer it was a hard choice. I eventually went with the Sony. I'm SO GLAD I did! This is an awesome stereo, great sound, TONS of features.
You really couldn't ask for more in a car stereo. There is an auxiliary input to easily hook up my iPhone 5 & play music off its iPod, a CD player, many Fm tuner settings & it's HD/Satellite radio ready. This is enough to warrant buying the Sony Xplod & that's without my even mentioning its appearance. The display is crisp, bright, very easy to read, with the display showing the FM station & the station name on the display screen. This is a great feature that I normally have with my XM radio & it's nice to have it for regular FM/AM as well. The auxiliary input is placed conveniently to the right so cables don't get in the way. The equalizer has several great presets & a custom setting to achieve the sound your looking for. I can't even turn my stereo all the way up because the sound would be too much the output on this is so good.
And to those complaining about the radio not being completely HD/SATELLITE "ready-to-go", the stereo instructions/box/display doesn't say it is. It clearly states the stereo is HD/Satellite READY. The introduction of the extra components is a breeze & a quick Internet search will yield results that are MUCH cheaper than the $70.00 one reviewer stated the HD cables would cost them.
I LOVE this stereo & am so glad I chose it. I will say 1 extra thing, when buying auxiliary cables to hook up your iPod/iPhone/smartphone I picked a cloth covered cable that is more resistant to tangling, you can find these at most music/car audio/stereo shops/mass market retailers (like Wal Mart)/the Internet, you can find them anywhere!

I've had Sony radios before. Never had a problem and recommend them to everybody I know. From the research I've done, the Sony Xplod GT34W cd player can be mounted in any vehicle with the proper installation equipment. Will never buy another brand. Keep it up Sony!!!

I was more than thrilled with all that this product had to offer considering its low price. Not to mention how many audio devices easily connect without re-doing wiriing or having to purchase additional parts/pieces. Makes life a lot easier (especially for one who has a hard time with staying on top of technology).

Beware HD "Ready"

Thought I was getting an HD radio when all I did was pay $20 extra to have to spend another $70 to buy an HD tuner in order to actually get HD. Other quality actual HD radios can be purchased for a better price.

After a trip to the local audio dealer, I decided to attempt to purchase and intall a stereo in my "Toy Hauler". My purchase and installation saved me about $150 over a purchase at the local audio shop. I'm very happy with the product!

everything i needed and having my wide cab, you have to lean forward to reach the stereo so the remote is very helpful, i just wish it was heavier but everything else is good, theres enough wattage that i cant turn it up all the way
