I can give a hint...there is nothing gentle about that man..he does his "installs" in a very professional and hard way.

Default Another BT interface

Ok, here's another Bluetooth interface thing:

The new product is the first automotive aftermarket system to fully integrate hands-free mobile technology with multi-media support, allowing users to play either downloaded or streaming music through their existing car audio system with a user friendly interface.

......
The BluetouchMusic unit, which features a user friendly display, clear touch screen and intuitive menu navigation, gives music lovers the freedom to replay and switch between music downloaded to either their mobile phone using Bluetooth(R) A2DP technology or iPOD(R) or other MP3 player via a hardwire.

Sony's New SACD HUs



"Three SACD Car Stereo Models from Sony Explod
The SACD products will consist of three Sony Explod models aimed at the after-sale car stereo market. The first two models, due out in late Spring, are the MEX-DV1000 and the MEX-DV2000.

According to Sony, the MEX-DV1000 is a 1-DIN sized multi-disc player that features Stereo SACD playback along with DVD Video, Windows Media Audio (WMA), MP3 Audio and Dolby Digital playback. It has 52 watts per channel of power for all 4 channels in the unit and offers sound output in excess of 100db. The MEX-DV2000 is essentially identical to the MEX-DV1000 except that it provides both Stereo and Surround Sound SACD playback.

In the summer, these two SACD Car Stereo products will be joined by the XAV-W1. This unit will be a 2-DIN size model that will include a WVGA TFT Touch Screen Monitor along with both Stereo Super Audio CD and Surround Sound Super Audio CD playback as well."

Gunbir, given the demads of SACD i wonder if it makes much sense in a moving car especially in urban India.

SACD sounds cool in a car..but have yet to hear any SACD cd's ...Are they available in India anywhere??? never seen them anywhere in Delhi at least..... Although the SACD/CD/DVD-A debate can be never ending.... but never the less would kill for one....

The question I'd ask is would you pay the difference just for SACD?

Well frankly I would think that "VFM" was never a forte for audiophiles
