The moment i hear the sony head unit , i love its quality but its life is very very less

Atlast after many official discussion last year , now sony has introduced new models.

New model in each section and hurray the price is also reduced.


This happened last 3 months back , and really the performance is good. No problem till now for the sets installed through pondicherry.

Then lens and board is changed at whole .

So now on we can rely on sony head units too[clap]

Are you telling Sony has reduced the price and introduced more variants, if yes, then its good. Sony is so much popular in electronics field, but in auto HU, somehow, it didn't click.

What is the website?

The price reduction is for boosting of sales and the lens problem is solved now

The whole lens set and board is new design. Sony official said this. And till now 3 dvd playes have been sold and its response is good. Also all other retailers says these.

I am fan only for its audio output. But it was not reliable. Hope from now on i'll be a happy man.

somehow, sony has left a very bad impression in my mind, especially when it comes to car ICE. so i will never buy a sony now, whatever be the case. infact, i even rejected a sony LCD TV & bought a samsung despite knowing that sony TVs are really good!

but ilango, do you think sony products are good? you say the HU has improved. what about the speakers? till now, i have seen that sony speakers/amp/woofers are inferior compared to the competition.

also, what amps are running the 2 subs & speakers? how does the JBL sub perform with respect to the sony sub? i am asking you since you have both in your car.

i am not biased to any brand, infact i myself have a sony amp & sony co-axials in my scorpio, but i am waiting desperately to get it changed.

Sony speakers are nothing compared to anything. even a duplicate pioneer perform well than sony.

I said only the sets have improved

Comparing the subs , jbl has awesome effect than the sony. sony has less thum effect for the same amp when jbl is connected

It was run by a 2 channel kenwood amp then ,
