      easy to set up a cd player

      The sony cdx-c8000r can be user-friendly. Everything which you require is situated in a cluster to the left of the facia. The menu functions are access from one button, as will be the sound alternatives. One of the features that I've mixed feelings about is the equiliser. There isn't a simple bass and treble setting, but a multichannel equiliser. This made it difficult for me to get the desired sound from your stereo at first - but this system provides you much more liberty; allow you to obtain a sound that appeals to you once I'd gotten used to it. Additionally, when I bought my stereo it came using a special sony insurance package.

      I installed the unit in a Fiat Seicento. It went in with little difficulty, even though the power supply for the display is a pain in the butt to cram to the dash. All in all, the deck hasn't given any trouble at all to me. I love the drop down face, and also the big display. One thing that I consider this unit is missing, nevertheless, is a "MUTE" button. The previous unit that I had included that function that was significant. It might not seem like anything big to you personally, but I have the wired remote control installed, and it comes with that function on it. It's quite convenient for when the mobile phone rings! The anti-skip memory has come in handy. I highly reccommend a unit that's it, even if you drive the smoothest auto on the road. It keeps the music flowing...uninterrupted. One of the significant reasons that I bought this unit was because of the preamp output signals. This version comprises front, rear, and subwoofer output signals. In a multi-amp system like I've, it makes set up and installation much more easy, and also you have better control within the total sound. The disadvantages that I have found with this unit: The faceplate is difficult to reinstall after you remove it. If you may see everything you are doing and have a lot of light, then there is no issue. Nevertheless, sitting in a the drive at night, or in a dark parking lot, it gave me tons of trouble. The display can be difficult to read in sunlight. Also, the contrast control on the unit does not give much range to you. In the normal position in when driving, that I'm, the display seems to be washed out. I propose if your searching for a stereo that can be easily upgraded at a reasonable cost buy this. As shortly I believe I am going to update it so that it might have a Minidisc and possibly a sub woofer. But overall a really realiable and great sounding stereo.

      If you are looking for a high quality in-dash CD player, I highly recommend the Sony CDX-C8000. I installed the unit in a Fiat Seicento. It went in with little trouble, although the power supply for the display is a pain in the butt to cram into the dash. Overall, the deck hasn't given me any trouble at all. I like the large display, and the drop down face. One thing that I think this unit is missing, however, is a "MUTE" button. The previous unit that I had included that important function. It might not seem like anything big to you, but I have the wired remote control installed, and it DOES have that function on it. It is very convenient for when the cell phone rings! The anti-skip memory has come in handy. I highly reccommend a unit that has it, even if you drive the smoothest car on the road. It keeps the music flowing...uninterrupted. One of the main reasons that I purchased this unit was because of the preamp outputs. This model includes front, rear, and subwoofer outputs. In a multi-amp system like I have, it makes installation and setup much easier, and you have better control over the overall sound. The disadvantages that I have found with this unit: The faceplate is hard to reinstall once you remove it. If you have plenty of light and can see what you're doing, then there's no problem. However, sitting in a dark parking lot, or in the driveway at night, it gave me lots of trouble. The display can be hard to read in the sun. Also, the contrast control on the unit doesn't give you much range. In the normal position that I am in when driving, the display appears to be washed out. I suggest if your looking for a stereo which can be easily upgraded at an affordable price buy this. As soon I think I will upgrade it so it can have a Minidisc and maybe even a sub woofer. But overall a very realiable and great sounding stereo.

      I recently purchased this sony cd/tuner after my previous stereo stopped working. I thought that the sound quality from my previous stereo was ok - but then when the sony head unit was fitted the difference was very noticeable (even through my inexpensive speakers). The sony cdx-c8000r is also easy to use. Everything that you need is situated in a cluster on the left of the facia. The menu functions are access from one button, as are the sound options. One of the features which I have mixed feelings about is the equiliser. There isn't a simple bass and treble setting, but a multichannel equiliser. This made it hard for me to achieve the desired sound from the stereo at first - but once I had gotten used to this system it gives you much more freedom; allow you to obtain a sound that appeals to you. Also, when I bought my stereo it came with a special sony insurance package. This will replace the headunit in the event of it being stolen.
