Sony displayed at the MRI Show in Sturbridge, MA this week, its second radio with a built-in high powered amplifier.
The new model is a double DIN CD receiver slated to ship in early June. The final power specification has not been finalized but it should be at least as powerful as the original high-powered radio– the Sony MEX-XB100BT that launched two years ago with a built-in 40 watt x 4 RMS micro amp. At the time Sony said the deck had twice the built-in power of a typical car radio.
The new WX-GS920BH is a double DIN version of the original model and it offers dual USB and dual auxiliary inputs.
It plays back Hi-Res Audio FLAC files and includes NFC and 5 volt preouts. It comes with a 3-year warranty at a suggested retail price of $299.
Sony is also replacing its best selling deck, the MEX-N5100BT with a new MEX-N5200BT. It can work with two phones over Bluetooth simultaneously, so you can stream music from one phone and talk on another. It plays Hi-Res Audio FLAC files and will have a street price of $119.
