Sony Malaysia will be introducing two new car AV receivers to Malaysia that they’ve dubbed as the XAV-AX6000 and XAV-AX4000 with the former slated for arrival in September and the latter in August 2022 though no official prices have been announced yet for both units for the Malaysia market.
What is the Sony XAV-AX6000 and XAV-AX4000
Both the Sony XAV-AX6000 and XAV-AX4000 media receivers are able to pair up via WiFi to an iPhone using Apple CarPlay and to an Android phone with Android Auto, allowing for voice controls on Siri or Google Assistant.
Once paired to an appropriate iPhone or Android phone via their respective services, these new Sony media receivers allow you to make and take calls, navigate, control music playback and more via the media receiver’s touchscreen and are also able to support the feed off a rear view camera for more efficient parking.
The XAV-AX6000 has a flat, flush-mounted 6.95-inch touchscreen and comes with a HDMI input and USB-C port to hook up to a smartphone or music off a flash drive. It also features an updated GUI design that has 14-band EQ sliders to ensure you can tune your listening experience to taste and also supports LDAC for high quality streaming audio off a Bluetooth wireless audio device.
