Question about Sony CDX-C5000X

3 Answers

I am trying to connect my MP3 to the RCA Aux Connectors on the Sony CDX-C5000 Deck. I see a couple of Unilink Aux Adapters by PAC and IMC. I guess it fools the Head into thinking it has a Satelite unit attached. I can not find a Compatibility list. Do you know if this will work with my CDX-C5000? If not, any other way to short out the Control Cable ?

    I have tried FM Transmitters but never happy with sound Quality and Static Levels. I am really looking for a Hard Wire Solution.
    I have used the RCA Inputs by loading a Disk in the Changer then connect RCAs to my MP3. But no Cartrige now so not an option anymore.
    I think these Unilink Adapters act as the Changer and enable you to Directly Connect to the RCAs. Just trying to determin if it will be Compatible with my Sony. http://www.crutchfield.com/p_127AUXONS/P...

    Yea but $100 vs $29. My Deck is pretty old and the PAC unit mentions Satelite Input Capable, which I don't think I have. And my Manual mentions XA-C30, not C40.

    Sound like the perfect Solution, but Again Compatibility ???

  • Bert Agostino May 24, 2011

    Still no Answer on the Compatibility of the PAC or the IMC Sony Unilink Adapters. Can anyone tell me if these will work with my Older Sony CDX-c5005 Deck ?

  • Bert Agostino May 24, 2011

    Thanks, and I agree in theory that's how it should work. But I am still questioning whether my CDX Deck will see this device as a CD Changer and clear the NO DISK Errors. Because mine is an older unit and I don't think it supports Satelite Recievers (which appears to be am requirement for at least the PAC unit), I am woundering if it is going to be Compatible ?
    It sound like I may have to order one and take my chances. No one seems to be able to confirm it's compatibility.

Hello
You can connect this device to and external MP3 player. Just connect the audio out L and R channels of the external unit to the input of L and R channel of the CDX. Switch On both the devices and select the Source in CDX. For this Press "source" repeatedly to select CD or MD. Then press "Mode" until the desired unit appears. Then the CD/MD playback starts. OK

  • Well, I use this right here https://www.myjupiterjack.com/?tid=3740&gclid=CLCJwuC1_6gCFale7AodeHGHNg they are cheap, simple and efficient. You won't need a cord at all. Just plug it in to the top of your MP3 player and pick 1 of the 4 radio frequencies empty in your are and set the Jupiter Jack and deck to it and play the MP3 player and it will come out through your speakers. Works great actually.
  • There are no inputs on your deck, only two sets of outputs, so the RCA connectors on your deck will not serve you for this purpose.
  • Then there is the Unilinks.
  • Those are your options.

Regards, Tony

    • Yea, I fully checked your deck out and the options available. If your going to be listening to your stereo loud then the transmitters may not be for you. The Unilinks basically take an input and make it an output so you can have an RCA input into your deck. If you want to have clear loud audio without fail, this is your only option. The CD to MP3 thinkn is OK but if you want clear and loud then yea, go with the Unilinks.

    • Something like this http://www.amazon.com/Sony-XAC40-UniLink...

    • Yea, looking at the manual an XA-C30 is what they want you to use. I think either would work but go with the manual. It may be less hassle to sell this deck and go with one that has an input. It's really that or $100 or you can try something like this too http://www.amazon.com/PAC-Audio-Input-Au... I don't think that revisiting the CD adapter would be a bad idea at this point. Real limited without the inputs on the deck.

    • In fact I'm thinking the XA-C30 is about the only choice you have. The CD thing won't work, you have no inputs. After further examination that's the choices you have. XA-C30 or a new deck.

Aux input for sony car stereo (cdx c 5000r)


For Sony Stereos, you will need to get what is called a Bus Converter. The RCA ports you are trying to use are for a CD changer or alternate device like satellite or HD radio, and those have to have some sort of frequency signal to even be selected. You can find a Bus Converter that will allow you to use this as an Auxiliary input. The device you are looking for is called a Sony XA 300, and it will allow you Two extra Aux Inputs, I believe.

I have a male ipod connector in my car to attach an ipod to. I do not have an ipod but would like to be able to connect a standard mp3 player to this connect point via a jack plug. Please can you advise if...


If your Sony has female RCA Aux inputs, then you can use that going headphone out of MP3 player to the RCA inputs. You won't be able to view or controll any other player from the head unit except an iPod.

No sound from cd or aux on CDX-GT32W


Just connect together the solid blue wire on the main harness to the radio with the blue/striped wire. The blue wire is for the power antenna and the blue striped is for the remote amp. but if not connected together only the fm/am has outputs to the line output RCA jacks. I learned this through Sony's tech line and it works perfectly now.

Linking an i pod to a Sony CDX-MP40 using the bus input terminal


Some Sony head units let you use the Bus audio inputs as an auxiliary source input, but yours is not among them. To play your iPod through the head unit, you'll either need an iPod interface module: http://www.xplodsony.com/xplod/accessories/XA-110IP or an auxiliary input module: http://www.xplodsony.com/xplod/accessories/XA-300 The iPod interface will allow you to control and display the iPod directly through the head unit, while an auxiliary input adapter will allow the iPod to play through the head unit using the iPod's controls and display.
