The Power of Sony

The Power of Sony Mobile Audio

Sony started with sound


For the moment, forget about BRAVIA televisions, Handycam cameras and PlayStation consoles. Before any of that, Sony was an audio company. Weve been breaking sound barriers for 60 years. And weve been advancing audio technology all the way from the recording studio to your ears.

1979 Worlds first mobile PWM amp. The PWM switching power supply was far more efficient than conventional amps, as Sony demonstrated with the XM-1. 1950 Japans first audio tape recorder. The Type G changed recorded history. 1982 Worlds first mobile diversity reception tuner. Two FM antennas can do what one cannot minimize multipath distortion. Sony proved it with the XR-100.

1984 Worlds first mobile CD player. It only stands to reason that the company that co-invented the Compact Disc was first to bring the wonders of digital audio into the car, with the CDX-5 CD player and CDX-R7 CD/tuner.

1986 Worlds first Mobile A/V system. This included the XTV-5 and XTV-8 monitors, the EVX-S8 8mm video deck and the XVM-9 TV tuner with diversity reception.

2011 Sonys first Digital Link Sound System DLSS The XDP-PK1000 integrates iPod touch or iPhone music1 with no need to rip apart your dashboard. It even upgrades your bass, power, clarity and imaging!

2010 Sonys first receiver with Tune Tray The DSX-S100 Digital Media Receiver.

2011 Worlds first Pandora internet radio control for three smartphone platforms The DSX-S310BTX supports Pandora control not only via iPhone devices1, but also Android and BlackBerry phones1.

1979 Worlds first Walkman player. Sony sets music in motion with the worlds first headphone personal stereo, the TPS-L2.

1981 Worlds first mobile frequency synthesis tuner. Before Sony, tuning a car radio meant turning a knob connected to a sloppy, imprecise variable capacitor. The Sony XT-1 changed all that.

1984 Worlds first mobile full-logic cassette deck. Before Sony, the Stop, Play, Fast Forward and Rewind buttons operated clunky levers and rods. Sony replaced them with electronically operated touchbuttons in the XR-740 and XR-780.

1986 Worlds first CD changer. Before it came into homes, the CD changer actually appeared in cars first with the CDX-J10 DiscJockey 10-disc changer.

1991 Worlds first Mobile digital preamplifier. Part of the legendary Mobile ES system, the XES-P1 included digital volume, balance, fader, parametric equalization and sound fields.

2010 Sonys first receiver with TomTom navigation The XNV-770BT in-dash AV receiver.

2012 First MirrorLink certified receiver in the USA The Sony XAV-601BT becomes the first MirrorLink cerified AV receiver released in the USA.

Customer Reviews

Even the experts are blown away


Hype and hoopla doesn't impress equipment reviewers. Gut-kicking performance does. So we are particularly gratified by all the rave reviews we've been getting.

We don't meet expectations. We exceed them.


When you go beyond what customers expect, they really notice. And they post their praise online. Sony Mobile Audio earns top scores and wins high praise in customer reviews.

Installing a new car audio system... usually requires a trip to the mechanic... But if youre looking to install a new sound system in your car without all that hassle, Sonys XDP-PK1000 will install in your car without having to rip up the dashboard or perform any rewiring.
Tyler Lee, www.ubergizmo.com

Everything I needed!
DSX-S310BTX
I am happy with this receiver and would recommend it to friends and family. It does everything I wanted out of a receiver and would buy it again in the current market. Sony Mobile Customer, Charlotte, NC

SOUNDS GREAT!
CDX-GT565UP
I literally bought, installed, listened to, and returned every other car stereo at Best Buy before coming across this one. Sony Mobile Customer, Elk River, MN

Big bang for the buck!


XM-ZR704 The XDP-PK1000 bypasses the in-dash stereo system to instead convert sounds into a sonorous 3D profile. Imagine, if you will, that your Yankee Hotel Foxtrot sounded as if it were coming not from left and right speakers, but directly through your windshield.
Ian Rowan, MSN Autos This is the best amp I ever heard so far. It has been a pleasure to buy Sony products. Sony Mobile Customer, Philadelphia

After a couple of hours of very enjoyable listening, I came away quite impressed with the sonic performance of this Sony DSX-S310BTX.
Garry Springgay, Performance Auto & Sound

Were most excited about the DSX-S310BTX with built-in Bluetooth. This in-car stereo is extra special because it is able to wirelessly stream Pandora radio from an Android or BlackBerry device, on-to your car stereo. Its actually the first of its kind to offer Pandora integration with Android and BlackBerry in such a manner.

OEM Integration Technology

Digital Link Sound System


The challenge: to integrate your iPod touch or iPhone devices 5 and get great sound without replacing the factory radio or tearing out factory speakers. The solution: Sonys Digital Link Sound System. The XDP-MU110 delivers slick integration for iPod touch and iPhone devices, plus high power, plus sophisticated DSP that improves the stereo soundstage even for in-dash receiver sources. The XDP-PK1000 has all of that, plus an enclosed subwoofer and a rocking 300 watt Class-D subwoofer amp. Either way, the path from factory radio misery to autosound enlightenment has never been easier.

Install the cradle on dashboard properly so that the unit will not interfere with normal driving.

XDP-PK1000 At a Glance
Theres never been anything quite like Sonys XDP-PK1000 Digital Link Sound System. Its more than iPhone5 integration. Its more than a subwoofer upgrade. Its the total solution that takes plain-vanilla factory radio to an entirely new level of sonic performance.

iPod touch and iPhone integration

Digital Signal Processing (DSP)


We dont just connect your iPhone, we make it sound better. Sony Digital Signal Processing (DSP) improves both your mobile device and your in-dash receiver sources with sophisticated time alignment, equalization and adjustable crossover points. The main processor box also includes a 45 watts x 4 amplifier to make your factory speakers sound their best.

Power trip
While the hide-away DSP box drives your factory speakers, there's even more power at your command. The supplied subwoofer is driven by a powerful Class D amp with 300 watts of power to satisfy your soul.

Not all iPhone integration is created equal. Going from the headphone output to your factory radio is bush league. Going in via the FM tuner is even worse. Sony created a unique interfacepreamp-power amp that integrates your iPhone as never before. The adjustable, dash-mounted cradle for iPhone makes it easy to play back stored audio content or launch streaming audio apps.

Switches for vehicle size, subwoofer location and trunk configuration make it easy to optimize the sound.

Your factory radio never had it so good.

We dont just connect your iPhone, we make it sound better. Sony DSP improves both your mobile device and your in-dash receiver sources with sophisticated DSP including time alignment, equalization and adjustable crossover points.

Power trip
Factory radios typically lack the power to take your music to the next level. Where factory radios can fall short, Sonys XDP-MU1 excels. The compact, 10 under-seat processor box includes plenty of power: 45 watts x 4. Net result? Your factory speakers will sound better than ever.

The headphone jack is a mediocre way to connect your iPhone portable into your car stereo. It degrades the sound by first making it analog. Connecting via FM radio is even worse. Sony created a unique interface-preamp-power amp that integrates your iPhone as never before. The adjustable, dash-mounted cradle for iPhone makes it easy to play back stored audio content or launch streaming audio apps.

Consider the system expansion possibilities: > > > > XT-100HD HD Radio tuner XA-120IP iPod interface RM-X60M/L Remote Commander marine controller Third-party satellite radio tuners (require service subscription) > XA-C40 Sony Bus switcher > XA-300 auxiliary input adaptor The system starts with an in-dash receiver equipped with a Sony bus terminal, which handles control signals. Most Sony bus products include a pass-through connection, so you can daisy-chain additional Sony Bus components. Audio connections are made with line-level RCA cables.

When it comes to variety, sound quality and innovative programming, SiriusXM satellite radio is a must-have. Most 2012 Sony receivers have the new on-board SiriusXM connector11 that simplifies satellite radio installation by eliminating compatibility issues and providing direct connection to the new platform of SiriusXM tuners.

Music to match your mood


There may be times when you want to sift and search through thousands of digital music files. But when youre driving is not one of those times. Playlists are nice for organizing your music, but playlists quickly grow old. Shuffle play is fine, for what it is, but its completely random and unrelated to your mood. Thats why Sony invented SensMe technology. Like a music concierge, the SensMe features arrange your music files by mood and serve them up accordingly. The technology is impressive. And the results are amazing. Compatible Models: XAV-701HD, XAV-601BT, XAV-72BT, XAV-64BT, XAV-63, DSX-S310BTX, DSX-S210X and CDX-GT660UP.

Content Transfer Software


SensMe technology begins on your Windows PC, with Sonys SensMe Setup and Content Transfer apps. The apps analyze your songs based on the 12 tones of the musical octave. In this way, the system can identify the song, album, and artist, retrieve the album cover art from the Internet and classify each song according to its tempo and musical content.

12-tone Analysis
The SensMe 12-tone analysis looks at seemingly simple parameters such as tempo (beats per minute), rhythm ratio and number of notes. But it can also identify more high-level features like three-chord songs, acoustic versus electric instruments, bright versus dark and happy versus sad. A level of timeline analysis identifies beat positions, bar lines and music structure. The system saves this information as metadata tags in the music files. This metadata accompanies the music onto compatible digital music players and USB drives. Not compatible with iPod or iPhone players.

The SensMe Channel display of Sony Mobile AV Receivers (XAV series) includes a thematic image for the channel (left) and album cover art (upper right).

SensMe Channels
In your car, SensMe channels make finding the right music as easy as picking a radio station. When you connect your compatible digital music player or USB drive to the head unit, youre ready to take advantage. Choose from any of 17 SensMe Channels, organized by mood (such as Energetic, Relax) time of day (Morning, Midnight) and driving occasion (Party Ride, Weekend Trip). The system can handle up to 500 tracks per channel. As an added bonus, Sony AV Receivers will even display the album cover art as each song plays.

SensMe Mood
How are you feeling right this minute? Happy? Sad? Somewhere in between? The SensMe mood function of Sony Mobile AV Receivers enables you to pinpoint your mood on a twodimensional chart. One dimension is Fast/Slow. The other is your choice of mood (Sad/Happy), Type (Soft/Hard), Style (Acoustic/ Electronic) or time (Morning/Midnight). The system arranges up to 200 tracks on the chart and plays the tracks in the circle around your select mood! Compatible Models: XAV-72BT, XAV-63 and 64BT.

Sony breaks new sound barriers


Sony makes high-end performance accessible to the rest of us. Its a cost-performance breakthrough made possible by two landmark integrated circuits our exclusive Advanced Sound Engine and Dynamic Reality Amp. Sony receivers with these circuits are destined to exceed the expectations of their delighted owners.

Dynamic Reality Amp: Power meets delicacy


Some people act as if loudness is the whole point of aftermarket Mobile Audio. At Sony, we love music and like to crank it up as much as anyone but we insist on hearing it the right way. That means low distortion, low noise and smooth frequency response. Our latest power IC, the Dynamic Reality Amp, establishes a new benchmark for in-dash amplification over our previous chip. > 27% lower transistor-to-frame resistance helps Sony reduce distortion and maintain fidelity to the original source. > 20% lower noise speaks for itself. Your music isnt merely loud. Its also clean. > Flat response to super-high frequencies provides smoother sound, without the distortions that can make cymbals and other high-frequency transient sources difficult to enjoy.

Overshoot at the leading edge of a high-frequency square wave indicates poor high-frequency uniformity in a conventional amp. Its a sign of sonic trouble.

Sonys Dynamic Reality Amp is far more accurate.

Advanced Sound Engine


Just as the engine makes the difference in your car, the Advanced Sound Engine makes the difference in Mobile entertainment. This Sony integrated circuit enables us to offer sophisticated Digital Signal Processing (DSP) at surprisingly affordable prices. The benefits go beyond equalization to include proprietary Dynamic Loudness, our original Rear Bass Enhancer, plus Time Alignment and super-flexible active crossover. Sonys Advanced Sound Engine combines extraordinary fidelity with extreme impact.

Center Speaker Organizer


Now you dont need a center channel speaker to enjoy proper playback of 5.1-channel DVD sound tracks. Sonys Center Speaker Organizer (CSO) performs downmixing. The circuit decodes the Center channel and mixes it into the Left-Front and Right-Front, creating a virtual Center speaker of high performance.

CSO Processing
CSO downmixes the Center channel to the Left-Front and Right-Front speakers.

CSO Result
The result is a high-performance virtual Center channel speaker. Other channels not influenced by CSO (independent)

Automatic Level Optimizer


When do you use the Volume control and why? Chances are you reach for the Volume when you switch sources, for example, between the radio and a digital music player. Thats when a sudden blast of sound can surprise you, distract you and get you reaching. Sony has a better way. Automatic Level Optimizer is a valueadded feature of Sonys exclusive Advanced Sound Engine. The system analyzes the audio level of each source you select and each digital file you play. And it automatically adjusts the level to prevent sonic surprises. For the driver, this means less need to fumble for the volume control. For everyone else, it means a smoother, more enjoyable audio experience.

Dynamic Loudness
When music playback is soft, the sound gets unnaturally thin. Thats because human hearing is far less sensitive to deep bass and extreme highs when the volume is low. The Loudness circuit was invented to correct this equalization imbalance. Loudness boosts the frequency extremes whenever the Volume control is turned down. Unfortunately, conventional Loudness cant take the program dynamics into account. But Sonys Dynamic Loudness can. It considers both the Volume setting and the dynamics of the content. You get powerful, natural sound at all settings of the volume control.

Listening Position
At home, youre free to sit where youll hear the best sound. In the car, youre not free at all. For example, the driver has no choice but to sit way too close to the front-left speaker. Sony compensates with the digital delay system we call Listening Position. By selectively delaying the channels, Sony aligns the arrival time for ideal sound. Independent settings for subwoofer and full-range speakers put you in complete control.

Rear Bass Enhancer


If your system doesnt include subwoofers, Sony has the next best thing. The Rear Bass Enhancer will direct the bass to the rear speakers only, then give that bass an extra boost, to deliver sound with authority.

Built-in HPF/LPF Crossover
Full-range speakers may be okay for factory radio systems, but they have major limitations. For one, full-range speakers cant produce really low bass the way subwoofers can. And as the amplifier tries to push bass through full-range speakers, the treble distorts. Thats why advanced audio systems use multiple, specialized speakers, including subwoofers, mids and tweeters. And thats why Sony receivers have built-in active crossovers. The high-pass filter (HPF) strips out the bass and sends the audio signal to the internal amplifier or to the RCA outputs if you're using an external amp. The low pass filter (LPF) sends just the low bass to a subwoofer amp.

Adjustable crossover Slope


Sonys Advanced Sound Engine takes the concept even further with a crossover thats not only active, but digital as well. For maximum impact, you want separate amplifiers for your subwoofers and full-range speakers. For maximum sound quality, the sophisticated Digital Sound Processing (DSP) built into the Advanced Sound Engine circuit provides you with a choice of mild, moderate or aggressive crossover slopes (6, 12, or 18 dB per octave). You can precisely divide the frequency range with the digital high-pass filter (HPF) and low-pass filter (LPF) with selectable frequencies at 50, 60, 80, 100 or 120 Hz and set the adjustable crossover slope to perfectly match the needs of your speakers. Theres even a selectable subwoofer phase mode to optimize your subwoofers presence. Selectable crossover slopes are available on select 2012 models (CDX-GT-40U, CDXGT56UI, CDX-GT565UP, CDX-GT660UP, DSX-S210X, DSX-S310BTX, MEX-BT4000P and MEX-DV-1700U).

EQ3 Equalization
In the old days, your only way to adjust tone quality was the bass and treble knobs. Sony equalization goes light years beyond, with discrete bands of equalization. The result is far more sensitive, supple control. Parametric models even let you select the frequency bands, for even greater sound control. EQ3 Stage 2 Three frequency bands (60, 1,000 and 10,000 Hz) with 10 dB adjustment. Models: CDX-GT260MP, CDX-GT360MP, CDX-GT700HD, CDX-HS70MW, CDX-H910UI, CDX-M10, CDX-M20, CDX-M60UI, DSX-MS60, DSX-S100 and MEXBT3000P EQ3 Parametric Three frequency bands with 10 dB adjustment and band selection (low 60/100 Hz, mid 500/1,000 Hz, high 10,000/12,500 Hz).

EQ7 Parametric Equalization


In the beginning, you could only control the frequency balance of your music with simple bass and treble adjustments. Threeband equalizers were a big step forward, adding control over midrange frequencies. Sony has gone even further with EQ7 and EQ7 Parametric. EQ7 provides 7 independent bands of adjustment while EQ7 Parametric provides 7 selectable bands of equalization. And enjoy six factory preset EQ curves, plus a seventh custom curve for your own settings. EQ7 Seven frequency bands (63, 160, 400, 1,000, 2,500, 6,300 and 16,000 Hz) with 6 dB adjustment.

When it comes to giving you a good kick in the pants, there's no substitute for Sony amplifiers. Flexible output configurations fit your needs from one channel of power to many. With audiophile output stages, your music isnt just loud, its also clear. And sophisticated input level, crossover and low boost adjustments enable you to optimize the sound for your choice of speakers.

Amplifier Technology

Channel Flexibility
Ask any audiophile or mobile audio expert. You'll hear that "bridging" a pair of amplifier channels results in a single channel of roughly twice the power. Many of today's best systems take advantage of this high power technology. That's why all Sony multi-channel amps can be bridged for maximum flexibility.

Sony 2/1-Channel Amps


Our 2-channel amps can drive a stereo pair of speakers or be bridged to deliver a single channel of roughly twice the power. It's a good choice for driving a subwoofer.

Sony 4/3-Channel Amps


All our 4-channel amps can drive four full-range speakers. Or you can bridge to drive two full-range speakers and a subwoofer.

High Level Inputs


The best way to connect an amplifier is called "line level" or "preamp output." This uses audio cables with the familiar white and red RCA jacks. But what if you're using a factory radio that doesn't have preamp outputs? Sony amplifiers come to the rescue with high-level inputs. Simply connect the speaker outputs of your receiver to the high-level inputs of the amplifier. Auto sensing will even switch the amplifier on automatically whenever the head unit is on.

Internal Crossover
To get the full benefit of your speakers, youll need to send them the appropriate musical frequencies. Thats why our amplifiers offer internal crossovers. A crossover consists of two filters: the High Pass Filter (HPF) sends everything but the deepest bass to full-range speakers while the Low Pass Filter (LPF) sends only the deep bass to the subwoofers. Filter adjustments enable you to set the frequency at which the music "crosses over" from full-range speakers to subwoofer. A separate bass boost adjustment enables you to optimize the bass for your specific choice of subwoofer.

Sony 4/3/2-Channel amps


Sony takes channel bridging one step further with 4-channel amps that enable both pairs to be bridged. The result is a 2-channel amp of extraordinary power.

Sony Class D Mono Amps


These subwoofer specialists are the only Sony Mobile amps that can't be bridged, because they only have 1-channel.

Amplifier Technology

To sub or not to sub


One of the glories of custom mobile audio is a big amplifier driving a subwoofer. Freed from the responsibility of reproducing midrange and treble sound the sub generates nothing but deep bass. The results can be spectacular, pumping out lows with a volume and realism that rivals the live concert experience. As in home theater systems, a single subwoofer can perform well because deep bass is not directional. The human auditory system can't tell where the bass is coming from.

Class D Amplification
"Powerful" doesn't have to mean big, heavy or hot. Conventional Class AB amplifiers only manage to convert 50 to 60% of incoming power into output to the speakers. The rest gets dissipated as heat. At 90%, Sony's Class D amplification is far more efficient than traditional Class AB amplifiers. As a result, the XM-GS100, XM-1S and XM-ZZR3301 deliver incredible power without filling up or heating up your trunk. These Class D amps are designed or subwoofer use only.

Conventional Amplifier

Dynamic Distortion Suppressor


When conventional amps are driven too hard, they clip off the signal peaks, sending masses of distortion to the speakers. The Dynamic Distortion Suppressor of Sony's XM-GS100 and XM-ZZR3301 reduces peaks without clipping them harshly. So distortion is substantially reduced.

Active Thermal Control


When the going gets hot, conventional thermal control simply shuts your amp down until it's cool. Sony's XM-GS100 and XM-ZZR3301 have a better way. Active Thermal Control automatically lowers the output until it's safe to return to normal operation.

Subwoofer Configurations
Sony single and dual-voice coil subwoofers enable you to configure systems of awesome power. For example, bridging a stereo amplifier to drive a single subwoofer results in nearly twice the power. In addition, wiring a pair of 4-ohm subwoofers in parallel results in a 2-ohm load, into which Sony Class-D amplifiers will also deliver roughly twice the power. With Sony amps and subwoofers, the power is yours.

DVC Wiring Options


Wiring a dual voice coil subwoofer in parallel (left) results in a 2-ohm load, a good choice for increased power with Sony Class D amplifiers. Wiring in series (right) results in an 8-ohm load, a good choice when you're wiring multiple pairs of drivers to an amplifier.

Interwoven Lead Wires


To maximize ruggedness and minimize acoustic interference, Sony has actually woven the voice coil lead wires into the subwoofer's spider.

Mica Reinforced Cellular Glass Fiber Cone


Select DVC subwoofer cones are constructed using a woven glass fiber reinforced with a mica cellular composite to provide a super rigid cone for better response. (XS-GS120LD & XS-GS120L only)

HOP and Aramid/Carbon Fiber Matrix Diaphragms


Butyl Rubber Surround M.R.C. Diaphragm Sonys patented Highly Oriented Polyolefine (HOP) has been hailed by autosound enthusiasts for bass thats tight, accurate and powerful. This year, selected speakers go even further, embedding HOP in a unique matrix with Aramid and Carbon fibers. Together the three materials suppress diaphragm resonance and minimize distortion not only in the lows, but also the mid and high frequencies. The result is sound thats powerful at all frequencies and uncommonly clean even when youve got the volume cranked up.

Tweater Adjustments
Unlike deep bass, highs are "directional." That's why Sony o mounted the tweeter of the XS-GS1720 at a 10 angle. And o that's why you can rotate the tweeter mount 270 . So you get clear, powerful highs whether you mount the speaker on a rear shelf or at the bottom of a door.

Crossovers
Sony speakers use passive crossovers to separate the frequency bands for woofers and tweeters. These carefully designed crossover networks lower distortion by providing each driver with only the correct frequencies.

Marine Audio Technology


Marine

Marine Audio Technology

Seaworthy entertainment
Reliable operation on the sea is no accident. Its the result of detailed engineering, which uses silicone rubber, circuit board coatings, UV-resistant finishes and more.

Ergonomic Design
When the throttle is open and the boat is bouncing, you'll appreciate Sony's front panel layout. Large, widely-spaced buttons make it easy to control your entertainment.

Resists UV Rays
Sony Marine Audio units are built to maintain their good looks, even after prolonged exposure to the sun.

Bright, Easy-to-Read Display


The cockpit of a boat is not a living room. Sony displays are designed to remain legible in direct sunlight.

Not just splash proof: Meets IPx5 Requirements


Not all marine audio systems are as tough as this. Imagine pointing hoses at an audio component. Now imagine turning the water on and letting loose a gusher of gallons per minute for three full minutes. That's the requirement of IPx5, the international standard met by Sony splash proof Marine receivers and controllers.14 Compatible Models: CDX-HS70MW, CDX-H910UI, RM-X60M/L.

Rigorously tested to resist salt spray


If you live on the coasts, splashing is not the only threat to your equipment. Salt spray is amazingly corrosive. That's why the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) created the B117 torture test for salt spray. Select Sony Marine head units, controllers and speakers pass the test, for superb durability. See product specifications for certification results.

Marine

USB 1-wire
Hear all your songs on all your outings. Sonys USB 1-wire interface lets you connect, control and even charge your 4 iPod, Walkman player, and other USB 2 devices.

Resists Salt Spray


Whether you're into freshwater or saltwater boating, Sony Marine Audio is built to take it.

Splash Proof
We don't just claim splash resistance, we confirm it through rigorous IPx5 testing!14

Also tested to withstand sunlight


Just as you can get sunburned, the finishes on your equipment can fade, crack and peel after prolonged exposure to sunlight. And just as with sunburn, ultraviolet (UV ) light is the biggest culprit. The finishes on Sony Marine head units, controllers and speakers are specifically designed to withstand another ASTM test: G154 for UV resistance.

Anti-corrosion coated circuit boards


You can't see inside Sony Marine products. But when you're out on the water, humidity can get inside, causing rust that can undermine reliability. That's why Sony uses conformal coated circuit boards. All Sony Marine products, including amplifiers are safeguarded by HAYA high humidity resistant vinyl resin. It's the same compound that protects the circuit boards of outdoor traffic safety equipment.

Qualifying Your Customer


Few techniques on the sales floor are quite as powerful as qualifying your customer. After you've said hello and introduced yourself, ask for the customer's name. Then use their name and ask the right questions about the customer's needs. By asking questions, you'll be accomplishing many things at once: 1. You'll be demonstrating that you're sincerely interested inthe customer's needs. This will inspire the customer to trust you more. And it's not even an act. You really are interested, because... 2. You'll be gathering all the information you need to make a smart recommendation, and... 3. Youll have exactly what you need to close the sale. When you describe the system, be sure to repeat what the customer told you, as in, You told me you really liked the idea of Pandora internet radio control. So Im recommending a Sony receiver that controls Pandora streaming and displays Pandora track and artist names...
