Sony Xplod MEX-1GP Car Receiver Stores 500 Songs

Sony’s Latest CD Receiver Transfers Music Directly From a PC to a Car Stereo

LAS VEGAS – Advancing the market for in-car digital music, Sony Electronics today announced an AM/FM CD/MP3 receiver capable of storing up to 500 of your favorite tracks and receiving music directly from your computer to your car stereo.

The new receiver has 1GB of flash memory and a USB port engineered into the faceplate. When the faceplate is removed from the receiver and connected to a Windows enabled PC, it is recognized as an external drive. With the provided USB cable, users can quickly transfer and save MP3 and WMA files to the faceplate.

The Xplod MEX-1GP (Giga Panel) model also supports playback of CD-R/RW discs, including those recorded with content purchased from Sony’s CONNECT online music store. Due to the unique ATRAC3/3plus playback capability of this receiver, it can play compressed music files burned onto a CD.

“Our Giga Panel receiver is designed for car audio enthusiasts who crave technology not available in a factory system” said Andrew Sivori, Sony’s director of marketing for mobile electronics. “We’ve created a way for music fans to have large, personalized collections of songs in their vehicles without the hassle of scattered CDs or MP3 players.”

The new receiver is finished in high-gloss black with a 13-segment LCD display for simple navigation of track and title information. The screen displays album, artist and track name when playing downloaded music files. Users can shuffle or repeat tracks, albums or personalized groups through controls on the faceplate or with the supplied remote control.
