About the Sony XAVAX5000: Digital Multimedia Receiver
Times have changed:
Remember when you only had a radio in your car? How quaint. Smartphones are now the way we roll when we're driving, thanks to car stereos like Sony's XAVAX5000 Digital Multimedia Receiver. This Sony integrates beautifully through Apple CarPlay and Android Auto so you can access your media through easy-to-use icons and pages, and even use your voice to make commands so your eyes stay on the road. When you do sneak a peek, you'll be impressed by the clarity and color of Sony's new bezel-less 7" flat mirror LCD display. Sony knows how to build beautiful display screens, and I think this is one of the sharpest ones on the market.
Use your phone's navigation functions through Android Auto (pictured) or Apple CarPlay.
The phone is the key:
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto let you access your phone's content through the sound of your voice or the touch of a finger. This stereo's controls behave like your phone's interface, so there's no learning curve. Plug in your Android or iPhone, and you'll get access to your navigation, phone calls, weather, text messages, and of course all your music.
Go wireless through Bluetooth:
Bluetooth enables wireless streaming for music, podcasts, and audiobooks, along with the convenience of hands-free phone calls. This Sony lets you enjoy all the content without plugging in when you get behind the wheel. You can install the included wired microphone close to you, so callers can hear you loud and clear.
Music — lots of music:
If you groove to your favorite music services on your iPhone or Android, you'll dig playing music from Pandora and Spotify on this Receiver. If you're looking for radio stations that won't fade away when you look for new adventures, add a Sirius-XM tuner to this Sony to enjoy satellite radio's deep programming from coast to coast.
This Receiver also offers an impressive array of sound-sculpting controls, including a 10-band graphic equalizer and dynamic stage organizer (DSO) which creates virtual speakers on your dash for better soundstaging. Supporting the soundshaping is the clear and natural sound of Sony's powerful dynamic reality amp 2. The XAVAX5000 also includes front, rear, and subwoofer preamp outputs for when it's time to add amplifiers to your system.
Want to keep your car's steering wheel audio controls?:
In most cars, you'll need an adapter to retain those controls through this car stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and radio, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. You'll see the adapters that work in your vehicle when you add this Receiver to your cart.
Bluetooth note: use of this Receiver's Bluetooth features will depend upon your phone's Bluetooth capabilities.
Note: you'll need a wired connection to your parking brake to access settings and other features on this Receiver. Your parking brake must be connected and set in order to view video on its screen.
