Sony XAV-W1 Car Stereo

Sony has made a surprise expansion of its Xplod head units through the XAV-W1. Marking two firsts at once, the W1 is both the first in-dash SACD player from Sony as well as the company's first large visual jukebox for cars. Owners with both the special disc format and a compatible audio system can listen to music in 5.1 surround; stereo is also available for regular CDs as well as MP3/WMA tracks. The same optical drive includes DVD support for movies (including DVD-R discs) viewed on the built-in 7-inch touchscreen, complete with either Dolby or DTS sound with surround audio systems.

Optionally, owners can also attach and control an iPod or add tuners for HD Radio and Sirius/XM satellite radio. The system powers up to 52 watts across four satellites and should be available in August for $800.

    Nice kit!!

    I thonk I waana get one for my Mazda RX7 GX.I paid $1500 for this car. After the test drive, I thought I was getting a real bargain, but the more I worked on it, the more I found wrong. However, I bought it with the intention to be a project car, although it is my daily driver as well.

    Anyways, this car is equipped with a 1.3L 13B Fuel injected rotary engine, putting out 146hp. I bought it with a complete 2.5" exhaust system and added a K&N air filter. This car is stupidly fast!

    I like it because mazda rx 7 performance parts is a base model with no power options, therefore making it not only lighter, but also much more simplistic than the loaded and turbo models.

    Handling is very good for stock form, but could be stiffened up a little bit with stiffer sway bars and front and rear strut bars, as well as a decent set of adjustable coil overs.
