DSEE HX upscaling restores fine detail DSEE HX (Digital Sound Enhancement Engine) technology upgrades the quality of your compressed music files. When an original music source is compressed, you lose the high-frequency elements in the music. DSEE HX restores them to produce high-quality sound that's closer to the original recording.

Rigid dual-layer chassis for clean, distortion-free sound The RSX-GS9's chassis boasts four times the rigidity of conventional head units, making sure that external vibrations do not cause distortion. The digital and analog circuits are mounted in separate layers as far apart as possible, preventing the noise that can result from electromagnetic interference and ensuring premium in-car sound quality.

Enjoy pure High-Resolution Audio via front micro USB Experiencing the highest quality playback on the RSX-GS9 is easy: just connect your High-Resolution Audio capable smartphone or player to the front-facing micro USB port and you're ready to go. This connection makes sure audio signals pass directly through the industry-leading ESS D/A converter, so you can enjoy great-sounding lossless DSD and linear PCM playback.

Sony original capacitors Designed especially for use in high-end audio products, our premium capacitors provide high-fidelity sound with a bright tone.

Clock generator for high-quality playback For high-quality sound without compromise. Our 80-MHz, high-precision clock generator sits beside the digital-to-analog converter to reduce vibrations and jitters, improving conversion accuracy and overall audio stability.

Wireless streaming with Bluetooth Wirelessly stream your favorite tracks with Bluetooth®. Pair your smartphone or tablet with the RSX-GS9 and you can enjoy your music and even control playlists and volume right from your device.

Wide codec support for listening convenience Enjoy more music freedom, thanks to the RSX-GS9's wide codec compatibility . You can play audio from a host of different file types, compressed or uncompressed, so you can compile the perfect playlist for your road trip.

NFC One-touch for instant connectivity Near Field Communication (NFC) technology makes complex set-up sequences a thing of the past. Simply touch selected NFC-enabled devices to the on-body N-mark for a quick, seamless connection, then start streaming content via Bluetooth®. No NFC" No problem. You can still manually connect to Bluetooth using your device's settings menu.

Get the most out of Bluetooth® with LDAC LDAC is a codec developed by Sony for the highest quality Bluetooth® audio streaming. It supports: up to three times higher bitrates than typical Bluetooth® streaming; sampling rates up to 96 kHz; and more efficient coding. The result is superior audio with less compression, enabling better-than-CD quality wireless sound.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Electronics can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new electronics should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.
