>> Hi, I'm Kevin Massy from CNET Car Tech and today we're taking a first look at the Sony CDX GT 610 UI. It's the first that we have seen that allows users to play music from generic USB mass storage devices. As well as its USB functionality, this unit is what Sony calls made for iPod and that means it has one of these, an intelligent iPod dolt connector. It's intelligent because when you plug an iPod in, the dolt connector transfers all control of the iPod to the front of the stereo faceplate. See on the front of this iPod we are hooked up to the Sony, a great feature this system is, it's ability to show iPods ID3 tag information. In addition to its iPod functionality, the unit also has a generic auxiliary input jack beneath the USB port. I have a Zoon here, I'll plug it in to the auxiliary input jack, turn on the Zoon, we should be able to play exactly what's on the Zoon through our unit with auk [ assumed spelling ] selected as the source. Currently we have an iPod, a Zoon and a generic USB mass storage device all connected to this Sony head unit as sources. In addition to all that, it also plays regular CD?s, MP3 and WMA disks and 8 track disks. So now, we have four audio sources, all accessible. This unit is currently on sale with a price tag of around a hundred and seventy dollars. I'm Kevin Massy and today we've had a first look at the Sony CDX GT 610 UI. ^M00:01:40 [ Music ]
At CES 2008, Kevin Massy takes a first look at the Sony CDX-GT420IP, a cost-effective device for bringing your iPod on the road.
The Plantronics Pulsar 260's excellent sound quality and user-friendly controls make it a great stereo Bluetooth headset.
The Eclipse CD3100 is a car stereo for drivers interested in fine-tuning their in-cabin acoustics. Its digital-audio playback and navigation features are intuitive and user-friendly. Its turn-by-turn navigation feature is not.
The Sony MDR-EX36V Stereo Headphones are a good budget-friendly option for anyone who wants to upgrade from the earbuds that come packaged with MP3 players.
The Panasonic Strada CN-NVD905U is a car stereo system that combines fast navigation with a user-friendly touch-screen interface and high-quality video playback.
The RCA Cell Phone Docking System is a helpful and user-friendly device, but make sure your cell phone is compatible.
The Sony Ericsson Z710i is a cell phone with an attractive, user-friendly design and a generous selection of features.
The second-generation Apple iPod Nano is like the successful offspring of an iPod Mini and a first-generation iPod Nano. It's small, stylish, user-friendly, and competitively priced--a great player all around and suitable for a variety of users.
Audiophiles may be dissuaded by the lack of an MP3 player and stereo sound, but business users will fall for the Tungsten C's blazing performance.
Although we bemoan the lack of an expandable memory slot, the Sony Ericsson W600i is a remarkable and user-friendly MP3 cell phone.
Sony CDX-GT610UI Review
The good: The Sony CDX-GT610UI car stereo offers lots of support for external digital-audio sources, a good range of sound adjustment options, and a very intuitive user interface.
The bad: Its lack of an On button puzzled us for a while.
The bottom line: The Sony CDX-GT610UI car stereo is a cost-effective and user-friendly option for digital audiophiles. Its USB and iPod compatibility set it apart from much of the single-DIN stereo competition.
