A well-rounded music collection is a sign of a well-rounded person, whereas a well-octagoned music collection means that you’ve been listening to stop signs on your turntable. Give the green light to recorded sound with today’s Groupon: for $99, you get a Sony car stereo with installation service and $30 worth of installation parts at Gold Star Audio in Irvine (up to a $258 value).
The on-site techs at Gold Star Audio tame unruly wiring to fill silent vehicles with vibrant sound. The in-dash Sony CDX-GT550UI receiver (a $149 value) sends sound waves rushing to a satisfying crest, slurping up radio frequencies and CDs, and its USB 1-Wire input connects, charges and controls mobile media. Several play mode options provide myriad ways to sort through virtual stacks of audio entertainment, including Quick BrowZer, which searches songs by artist, album, and genre. The Zappin' feature samples short clips so drivers can make educated playlist decisions, skipping the tunes that clash with their musical whims using a wireless remote card that controls basic radio functions. The stereo-installation service (a $79 value) inserts a 208-watt amplifier equipped with high-voltage preamp outputs that catapult treble and bass across traffic lanes. The $30 credit for installation parts will purchase all the parts necessary for installation in most types of vehicle, such as dash kits and wiring harnesses.
