Product Specifications

It's just like home! Press the "load" button on Sony's CDX-MP80 CD/MP3 receiver, and the motorized tray with its disc-gripping spindle slides out to accept the disc. The isolated playback mechanism combines with a memory buffer for true skip-free playback! Your MP3 files and CD-R/CD-RW music discs will track accurately, even through the worst road conditions and bass vibrations you might encounter. The motorized, detachable faceplate features a dot matrix display with 7 selectable colors. The easy-to-use rotary knobs perform multiple functions, keeping the control panel simple and uncluttered. The readout displays ID-3 tags or CD Text so you can find the way to your favorite tunes quickly. This striking receiver sounds as great as it looks. The high-powered built-in amplifier (23 watts RMS/52 peak x 4) delivers clean, true sound, and you can shape the sonics to your liking with Sony's EQ7 - 7 EQ presets combined with a 7-band EQ. The Dynamic Soundstage Organizer (DSO) feature compensates for the poorly-placed speakers in your car by raising the soundstage up to dash level. Three sets of 4-volt preamp outputs stand ready to supply clean signal to any outboard amps. For radio aficionados, Sony's SSIR-EXA tuner excels at pulling in AM/FM stations from near and far. The rear auxiliary inputs let you plug in the audio signal from a variety of entertainment sources. A credit card-style wireless remote is included. When loading a CD, the motorized face folds down and the motorized tray extends. After the disc is loaded, the tray retracts and the face returns to its normal position. The motorized tray mechanism does more than just add ease of operation, and impressive motorized function. It helps to seal the playback chamber, keeping CDs dust-free, and isolates the playback process from airborne vibration, especially in extreme SPL conditions. Sony's Dynamic Soundstage Organizer (DSO) uses proprietary circuitry to induce subtle phase shifts, simulating a sound source that is placed higher than the actual speakers in the vehicle. For example, when the DSO function is used in a vehicle equipped with speakers mounted low in the front doors, it creates virtual speakers in the dash to raise the soundstage. This unit offers three levels of DSO, each with a larger and higher soundstage. You can store the DSO setting for each source.
