The writer of this post would like it to be known that he who was quoting Monty Python has just been sacked!

Does anyone else feel like having a little giggle when I mention my friend Bigus Dickus?

He has a wife, you know. Incontinentia. Incontinentia Buttocks.

(Okay - I'm done)

well...
you have to admit...that's more then a head unit...
I think someone made the comment, spending a couple k on various components...so that's all that is...it's a CD Changer amps and more with a "head unit" sized interface to control it...I don't even think you could claim that system comes with a head unit...




no no no... the head unit being larger than normal, remote mounted and holding 6 cd's does not make it any less a head unit... it just LOOKS like a changer...

you wouldn't say that the nakamichi or alpine in-dash changers weren't head units, would you? even if they had anything close to the dsp, x-over capabilites of the z-50...

the amps, speakers, etc. are seperate components... the entire xes system would run a bit over $15k...

ummm...one of those pages...which is now down showed the Sony as a system that included all that stuff...
and that press release in Japanese so I have no idea what it is saying seems to display the system as a complete system...
Does Sony even list this on any english website? Is there any other info about that product specifically?
and I don't think it's a head unit if it doesn't go in the dash...

The Sony Xes-Z50 is A Complete Car audio System and to answer your question it does contain a headunit, However it is not Solely a headunit and just as a number of manufacturers produce traditional headunits with digital optical outputs that need external dacs and amplifiers before they can be used they are still discribed as headunits, It is common to define the headunit as a device with a function to either control or display information about the car audio system in the same way a 7 inch pop up tft used to control a changer mechanism with no tv or tuner option installed so it does not actually reproduce any output or store any music internally but will control or direct the output or reprodution from other components of the system. And this is why most High End systems are often parts of component systems.
Information on the sony system is available here http://www.itp.net/features/980950166753523.htm and http://www.ukdigitalradio.com/products/incar/default.asp
and curent trade price in the UK is about ?000 plus fitting for the main parts.

Cheers

Max

there is an entire line/system of sony xes products...

the xes z-50 is the "source" or "head" unit... it retails for about US$8k

the amps and speakers are available seperately and have different model #'s... the entire system runs about US$15k...
