Having Bluetooth® in your vehicle these days is a must – and Sony’s latest XAV-W651BT DVD head unit boasts not only a solid Bluetooth connection for Handsfree Calling and Music Streaming, but also a 6.2″ touchscreen, and plenty of sound-shaping tools, giving you in-dash control over all aspects of your in-car entertainment.
This unit’s Bluetooth connectivity creates a wireless link between your smartphone and your vehicle’s audio system, allowing you to stream the music and podcasts you love. If you’re into Spotify or Pandora, you can pair your iPhone or Android™ device to the XAV-W651BT and enjoy your playlists. If you have an iPhone® with Siri, you can perform all of your usual commands and hear Siri’s response through the car’s speakers.
Alternatively, plug your iPod, iPhone, or Android phone into the front USB input and take charge with direct control and playback of your music. You’ll get on-screen control over your music, and you’ll keep your device charged up – ready for when you step out of the car. If you have an Android phone, you can use Sony’s SongPal app to browse a wide variety of streaming services.
The powerful built-in amp combines with Sony’s MegaBass to make your digital music sound rich, full, and dynamic. You can adjust the EQ5 5-band hyper-equalizer to optimise the acoustics in your vehicle or access the preset tone curves to adjust your sound. You’ll also find a rear audio/video input for adding another source. The video output allows you to set up a rear screen, so you can maintain the back-seat peace with a steady stream of movies. Plus, the three sets of preamp outputs make it easy to add on amps or a powered subwoofer.
