Sony Launches New Xplod CD/DVD Car Audio Receivers

Sony, the leading consumer electronics brand, has announced the launch of five new Xplod A/V receivers (XAV-701BT, XAV-741, XAV-601BT, XAV-64BT, XAV-63).

Offering enhanced iPod/iPhone control, a wide range of smartphone and USB connectivity options, multi-channel surround sound and more, Sony’s latest in-dash receivers provide rich, immersive music and video experiences while on the move.

A statement from the company says the new Passenger App Control allows users to connect an iPod or iPhone via USB to display their favourite TV shows, movies, and compatible applications onscreen1. Bluetooth connectivity on the XAV-701BT, XAV-601BT and XAV-64BT with an external microphone completes the package, enabling true hands-free calling while driving.

The XAV-701BT/741/601BT A/V receivers feature high-quality WVGA panel displays with full touchscreen capability and a myriad of ways for passengers to share their favourite multimedia when on the road. Meanwhile, dual USB connectivity allows for simultaneous connection to USB mass storage devices such as the Walkman digital music player for music playback and control over the display of album artwork and playlists.

These receivers also offer universal smartphone connectivity to any MirrorLink certified smartphone. Once connected, drivers can play music, make and take phone calls, as well as control smartphone-based navigation services and applications, all from the receiver’s 6.1-inch or 7-inch touchscreen. The application achieves full smartphone integration while not compromising driving safety.

MirrorLink™ is a technology standard developed by the Car Connectivity Consortium that enables the streaming of smartphone content to in-dash receivers, facilitating control of applications and music on the receiver’s touchscreen.

Sony is also redefining the in-car audio-visual experience. Each receiver uses Sony’s proprietary Advanced Sound Engine with full digital processing and Virtual 5.1ch to deliver powerful surround sound, truly bringing the theatre into the car.

Visuals are equally stunning, powered by an extremely advanced GUI design that offers a super-fast response, a 6-Pre-set Visualizer, customizable wallpaper, and variable illumination to match any car’s interior. For added theft protection, the 601BT includes a fully detachable faceplate, rendering the receiver useless without it.
