 The Sony CDX GT430U head unit is a relatively inexpensive device that is compatible with all of Sony's latest audio technologies - a great thing for a consumer who wants to buy cheap now and add on to the capabilities later. It is a CD tuner and comes with USB and AUX-IN connections for portable music players. It uses the Sony ZAPPIN function that allows the consumer to find the tune they're looking for just by playing a clip of each track in the collection, this way the driver can search for music using their ears instead of their eyes. It has twin pre-outs that can be connected to an external amplifier. The Sony CDX GT430U uses a 52W x4 S-MOSFET amp.
