Sony Introduces Bluetooth Car Stereo MEX-BT5000
The Sony MEX-BT5000 car stereo is Sony's first audio-streaming AM/FM CD receiver with wireless Bluetooth technology. The car stereo automatically connects with cellular phones and other devices, including portable music players that have Bluetooth connectivity.

Using the Bluetooth technology it is possible to transfer up to 50 phonebook contacts and six speed-dial entries from a mobile phone to the stereo. The contact information appears on the receiver’s high-resolution screen so drivers can call friends even when the phone is out of reach.

An integrated microphone on the faceplate detects voices and eliminates the need for additional wiring so the installation process is quick and easy. The integrated noise and echo reduction signal processing enhances phone call clarity.

Music aficionados can easily read key information including album, artist and track on the full motion florescent display. They can play, pause, skip, fast-forward or back up songs, and the BBE MP signal processing technology promises to restore the much of the depth of sound frequently lost during MP3 compression.

The MEX-BT5000 car stereo supports multiple codecs, including MP3, WMA and ATRAC as well as audio CDs.

Music phones with Bluetooth technology, including the Sony Ericsson Walkman phones, work with the MEX-BT5000 car stereo to stream music from the phone throughout the vehicle’s stereo system.

An included remote provides remote playback and phone operation controls. The White LED key illumination brightens and clarifies the screen display, and the screen flips down, making it easy to play CDs. The unit comes with a Sony Bus Control for CD changers and is satellite-radio ready.

The MEX-BT5000 car stereo will be priced around US$400 in the US and will be available in August both online and at authorized retailers.
