Sony Bluetooth Car Stereo Receiver with 180 Watt RMS- MEX-XB120BT

Bring the conveniences of modern technology into your car while giving your speakers more power with the Sony MEX-XB120BT car stereo receiver. As music moves farther and farther away from physical media like CDs, the ease and accessibility of streaming audio have quickly turned our smartphones into our primary music players. With this Sony bluetooth car stereo, you can wirelessly connect your phone to the head unit, allowing you to easily play audio from all of your favorite apps over your car speakers. The Sony MEX-XB120BT car stereo receiver even lets you sync two phones at the same time, allowing you to make or receive hands-free calls while a friend controls the music and or navigation. The included external mic enables hands-free calling and also makes it possible to get directions, send messages, and manage music with simple voice controls through your Android or iOS device. Additionally, Android Open Accessory (AOA) 2.0 allows you to play music via a USB connection with the Sony bluetooth car stereo, accommodating those who would prefer not to use the Bluetooth connection.

In addition to its helpful connection capabilities, the Sony MEX-XB120BT car stereo receiver also includes a number of features to help deliver exceptional sound quality for your ride. Its efficient class-D amplifier outputs an impressive 180 watt RMS (4 x 45W) offering your speakers significantly more power than most factory installed head units. If you're planning on adding an amplifier to the system as well, the Sony bluetooth car stereo includes three high-voltage pre-outs, giving you the freedom to design the perfect car audio system. However, with Sony's Dynamic Stage Organizer, this receiver can adjust muddy or unclear audio to make the music sound like its coming from crisp dash mount speakers. Between the extra power that the Sony MEX-XB120BT car stereo receiver can feed to your speakers and its ability to reshape your soundstage, you may not need to add extra speakers or amplifiers to achieve your ideal system. Knowing that speakers can only sound as good as their source material, this Sony bluetooth car stereo also offers FLAC compatibility for true losses quality. So upgrade your car stereo receiver to the Sony MEX-XB120BT and start hearing your music the way it was meant to be heard.

  • Create virtual speakers right in front of you
    Sound waves are directional, so if your speakers are in your doors or under your dash, the audio may seem muddy or unclear. Dynamic Stage Organizer adjusts the signal, improving the stereo positioning so music sounds like it's coming from right in front of you.
  • Bring out the bass
    Hit the EXTRA BASS button for deep, punchy sound at any volume. Switch between two settings for different intensities of bass boost.

    FLAC compatibility lets you play lossless audio files, so you can enjoy every detail of the music.
  • Expand your sound system
    With the three pre-outs, you can add components of your choice, like extra amplifiers and sub-woofers. Standard units deliver 2-volt audio signal, while Sony’s high voltage pre-out delivers a 5-volt signal, giving you a much clearer sound with less distortion when connected to the power amplifier. You can also expect less external noise.
  • Heat ventilation
    An over-sized heat sink with an optimally designed fin structure ensures efficient ventilation for your amp.
  • Precision power block placement
    Placing the power block close to the input and amp minimizes power loss, while electrolytic capacitors ensure precise, responsive bass

    Circuitry and components are carefully laid out for low-noise, highly efficient electric power transmission.

    AOA 2.0 compatible front and rear USB ports give you even more options for connecting various mobile devices.
