The sound quality and the sound settings are very impressive, you can change every apect of the sound using the digital equaliser and the preset sound options.

The CDX-M800 CD receiver upgrades Sony's Active Black Panel to an exciting full-motion fluorescent display with high-resolution graphics and screensavers! Open the faceplate, and the inner panel features a smaller LED display and soft-touch controls. Close the faceplate, and use the wireless remote to control the receiver when viewing the extra-large display. When you power down, the Active Black Panel does double-duty by disguising the receiver as a featureless panel in your dash.If your car has speakers low in the door, you'll appreciate the Dynamic Soundstage Organizer. It raises the stereo image off the floor, making your music sound more robust and exciting. No matter where your speakers are, Sony's 4-way high power will give them the juice they need to make your tunes come to life! Fine-tune the sound with the seven preset curves and 7-band equalizer of EQ7.Add Sony's XM tuner and you're primed for the crystal-clear, diverse programming of XM Satellite Radio (antenna and subscription required). If you want even more entertainment, the CDX-M800 will also control a Sony 6- or 10-disc CD changer. Front, rear, and subwoofer preamp outputs simplify adding outboard amps to your system.The CDX-M800 features the Active Black Panel with fluorescent full-motion display. Since there are only two small buttons on the front, the display area is very large. When the unit is on, the bright fluorescent display offers numerous modes of full-motion graphics. When the unit is turned off, the entire face goes dark making it difficult to be spotted by a potential thief.Sony's Dynamic Soundstage Organizer (DSO) uses proprietary circuitry to induce subtle phase shifts, simulating a sound source that is placed higher than the actual speakers in the vehicle. For example, when the DSO function is used in a vehicle equipped with speakers mounted low in the front doors, it creates virtual speakers in the dash to raise the soundstage. This unit offers three levels of DSO, each with a larger and higher soundstage. You can store the DSO setting for each source.
