    Rated 5 out of 5 by Cheap and Great Sound This stereo is amazing. At first I thought "is it a good idea to have a car stereo without a CD player", but because all my music is digital I don't need a CD player. I have all my music on a USB drive and the file structure is like that of an iPod, as follows: Artist - e.g. Michael Jackson - Songs #all songs# or Albums #Bad, Blood on the Dance Floor, Dangerous, etc# Genre - Dance, Hip Hop, Pop, etc Playlist - 2014, 2015, 2016, etc. This is time consuming to setup, but if you get a really small USB, it is hardly noticeable sticking out of the stereo. Now its easy to scroll through to the music I want to play. With the standard stereo in my car, the sound was awful, and I thought I needed to replace the speakers, but after the installation of this stereo, the speakers sound amazing, the build in amp really boosts the sound. My journeys to work have now been halved, as I don't notice how long it takes, as I'm enjoying the music I want to listen too, and not what the DJ on the radio thinks I should listen too. With the AUX port, my friends can put on their music on from whatever device. Great player for the price, yes there is no CD player #CD is a very old format# and no Bluetooth, but I don't want annoying calls while I am driving, and its dangerous playing music from your phone while driving. Recommended to all. 17 March 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent sound quality This product is a reasonable price and produces clear quality sound. I had it installed into my car and now I can play music off my phone without any problems. It also has usb connection so you can charge your phone. I recommend this product to anyone who wants to replace their car stereo. 15 March 2016
    Rated 4 out of 5 by At This Price, You Can't go Wrong!!! This is a great stereo that does everything you would realistically need. Firstly, don't buy this if you want to play CDs - it does not have a CD player. Sounds obvious but I guess it could catch some people out. Secondly, the online ordering system will probably suggest that you add a Harness Adaptor to your purchase - you probably do not need it as the included harness adaptor can be configured for most situations (where you need to go from ISO to DIN). A harness adaptor may be required for some vehicles - so it's worth pulling your own head unit to check before you buy - but I guess that Sony's included one will work in most cases. Fitting is a relatively straightforward affair - even on my Fiat Punto, which required some additionaly wiring for a switched live. Sound quality is great and the convenience of having access to your full iPhone music library is fantastic. I must say that I find the navigation of musix files a little cumbersome when using just the head unit to navigate so generally I just leave it in 'iPod' mode and navigate to music from the phone itself. Currently, you can pick this up from Halfords for £45. Considering that you'd easily spend half that amount on a FM transmitter to connect to a convetional head unit, it's an absolute bargain. 12 February 2016
    Rated 2 out of 5 by No for Android This car stereo is really good as long as you use Apple products but as soon as you switch to android, it becomes disaster. You can not run your Android based devices on this stereo so please think twice before buying it. overall product is good and quality is much better than most of the stereos that i have used. 07 February 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by fantastic sterio Everything you need in a practical stero, defentley recommend this stero 03 February 2016
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Exactly what was required Perfect little stereo for my first car; looks smart as if it is meant to be there. Perfect for charging my iPhone and playing whatever music I want. Small critisims the buttons are fairly small and fiddly when trying to concentrate on driving, but as the stereo is small it is understandable. Service at halfords was good, the fitting took longer than expected but I believe that was more down to my car being pain rather than the competencey of the fitter. Also the website did say my car wouldn't require any extra parts, however when it came to fitting I had to buy something else it wasn't expensive, but could have caused a problemsif I had only brought the exact money, so just be aware of that. 29 January 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Sony DSX-A40UI Car Stereo Wanted this for my motorhome (based on a Fiat Ducato 2003), which has an ignition switch that is off or on, with no halfway point to power a radio!. I bought this Sony, which came with a small wiring loom adapter. It had connectors in this loom to enable me to have the radio on or off whilst the ignition is off (just what I needed). The fitting instructions were very simple and easy to follow. It took me about 5 minutes to remove the old radio and fir this one and then it was working. With the remote control this is especially good in a motorhome. I definitely recommend this. 07 January 2016
