Sony has equipped its latest AV receivers with "premium" displays and brushed aluminium faceplates. The XAV-AX150, XAV-AX8100 and XAV-AX5600 also support Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and WebLink Cast. There are also additional HDMI inputs for alternative sources of entertainment, although there are also Bluetooth, USB and 5V 3-pre out options included with these new in-car terminals.

The 3 new receivers also feature "premium" touchscreens with adjustable mounts and customizable wallpapers. The XAV-AX8100 and XAV-AX5600 have 8.95-inch displays, whereas that of the XAV-AX150 is 6.95 inches. Then again, the latter also feature a quad 55W or 20W power output.

The 3 new AV receivers also feature Sony's EXTRA BASS and Sound Optimization technology, with an additional Dynamic Stage Organizer (DSO) in the XAV-AX150 to optimize audio specifically for the in-car environment. That new receiver will become available from May 2021 and will be priced at about US$300.

The XAV-AX5600 and XAV-AX8100, on the other hand, will be released in July, and have recommended prices of $500 and $650 respectively.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
