The ultimate in-car audio experience

Take your in-car audio to outstanding new heights with the RSX-GS9 media receiver. By uniting premium components with our greatest audio technologies—including DSD native playback and DSEE HX upscaling—you can be sure you’ll always enjoy high-quality audio when on the road.

Purest audio quality - Get the best out of your receiver with a wired connection via one of three USB ports.

Lossless audio comes to your car - With its expanded bandwidth, native Direct Stream Digital (DSD) playback delivers superior audio resolution.

Instant streaming - Make a one-touch connection with Bluetooth® via NFC for instant access to your music library.

Studio-quality sound at the wheel - Immerse yourself in a whole new in-car listening experience

The RSX-GS9 is a feat of audio engineering, boasting a unique combination of our most refined sound technologies—including native DSD lossless playback and an industry-leading ESS digital-to-analog converter.

Sound that stays true from source to speaker - DSD native playback delivers sharp, lossless audio

Enjoy pure detail in everything you listen to. The RSX-GS9 is the world’s first in-car media receiver with native DSD playback, a codec designed specifically for High-Resolution Audio.

Engineered for ultimate listening pleasure - ESS digital-to-analog converter

Experience the same caliber of sound usually reserved for high-end home audio products, thanks to the ESS DAC chip—an industry-leading converter that provides optimum quality from all your digital music files.

Hear the difference with DSEE HX upscaling - Bring every track closer to the original recording

DSEE HX™ technology injects more life into your music, upscaling compressed files to near High-Resolution Audio quality. Restoring the subtleties of the original recording gets you closer to the sound of a live performance.

Optimized for excellence - Because premium sound requires premium components

Beneath the beautiful brushed-aluminum finish and OLED display lie carefully engineered components that revolutionize the way you listen. A high-precision clock generator works to improve digital-to-analog conversion accuracy, while a separate digital block ensures minimal noise from interference. Each component has its own dedicated circuit to optimize performance.

Sturdy build, smooth sound - Enjoy cleaner tone from a highly rigid chassis

The RSX-GS9 has the highest rigidity ever achieved in a receiver chassis. This minimizes internal and external vibrations, achieving ultra-low distortion even in harsh in-car environments.

Pure, undistorted audio - Separate chassis blocks for optimum performance

The dual-layer design of the chassis separates analog and digital circuitry, preventing noise for uncompromised sound quality.

Operation amp - High-end operation amp components are used in the RSX-GS9’s analog circuits for greater depth of sound and audio realism.

Premium Sony capacitors - Our specialized audio capacitors work to deliver high-fidelity sound with a bright, full-bodied tone.

Clock generator - The clock generator further refines digital-to-analog conversion for precise, stable sound.

More ways to enjoy your music - High-quality wired and wireless connection options

Get the full High-Resolution Audio experience when you connect to one of the RSX-GS9’s three USB ports, or make a wireless Bluetooth® connection via NFC One-touch NFC for total music mobility.
