Sony Unveils its First Multi-Channel SA-CD Audio/Video System for the Car

Sony today announced its first Super Audio CD-based car audio/video system centering on the new Sony XAV-W1 in-car video head unit.

It is also Sony's first double din-sized visual entertainment system for the car, providing outstanding picture and sound quality, easy connectivity to MP3 players and personalization options.

"This system offers the easiest way to create the ultimate in-car listening environment," said Brennan Mullin, vice president of audio in the Digital Imaging and Audio Division at Sony Electronics. "You'll see and hear the difference."

The new XAV-W1 video head unit not only features the SA-CD audio format but also the accompanying 5.1-Channel surround sound option. It has a 7-inch video screen (measured diagonally) that incorporates the WVGA TFT high-end standard for picture quality.

The system lets passengers enjoy CDs, DVD videos and Super Audio CDs. The player supports Dolby(R) Digital surround sound and dts(R) Digital Surround Processing playback, along with the JPEG video format, as well as Windows Media Audio (WMA) and MP3 audio formats.

Super Audio CD

The integrated SA-CD high-resolution audio format is based upon Direct Stream Digital (TM) (DSD) technology. DSD records music signals at a sampling frequency of 2.822 MHz and converts them to 1-bit data.

Mullin said that this achieves "unprecedented sound quality," without the decimation and additional stages associated with conventional Pulse Code Modulation technology.

Easy-to-Connect Digital Music

The video entertainment system's intuitive user interface makes it easy to connect to and control external connected entertainment hardware devices and play video or digital music files. The model is satellite radio and iPod ready, so drivers can hook up their iPod player and, with a controller device sold separately, control their digital music libraries on the road. When connected to Sony's HD Radio(TM) tuner, users can enjoy additional HD Radio channels, including many that feed rich information like artist names and song titles to the car stereo's display. HD Radio can also display radio station names and genres, where available.

Drivers can command their digital music from behind the wheel or the back seat with a supplied remote card. They can connect through the rear auxiliary input with an audio cable (not included) to playback from portable MP3 players through the universal 3.5mm mini-plug input. The system offers a wide selection of playback options including DVD+/-, DVD-R/RW, SA-CD, VCD, CD and CD-R. For a smooth sound during a bumpy ride, the Sony Drive S II feature makes the head unit resistant to interference from road vibrations.
