Three inputs, including 1/8-inch AUX, USB, and Bluetooth, are supported by the CMT-SBT100. You also have a 1/8-inch headphone out. Additionally, an AM/FM radio and CD player are built-in. The CMT-SBT100’s front conveniently houses both the USB port and headphone output, making it simple to use. Because the AUX input is on the back panel, there is less clutter on the front.

Although Bluetooth version 3 on the CMT-SBT100 is a little dated, it still functions perfectly well with this system and supports AAC and apt-X. Your Bluetooth device can be connected quickly and easily, and the 33-foot range is very reliable (the range will vary from property to property). NFC (near-field communication) is also built into the CMT-SBT100 to enable quick pairing with NFC-enabled devices.

The Bluetooth pairing allows for remote control or even the use of the audio buttons on the receiver to operate the device.

Sound Quality

The heart of any audio system lies in its ability to reproduce sound faithfully and captivatingly. The Sony CMT-SBT100 excels in this aspect, delivering a balanced and rich sound profile. The well-tuned speakers, coupled with the ample power output, ensure that music comes alive with vibrant highs, resonant mids, and deep lows. Whether you’re listening to intricate classical compositions or bass-heavy electronic tracks, the HiFi system handles it all with finesse.


The Sony CMT-SBT100 HiFi System strikes a harmonious balance between elegant aesthetics and functional design. The unit’s sleek and compact build makes it a versatile addition to any room, seamlessly integrating into various décor styles. The minimalistic front panel houses an intuitive control interface, allowing users to effortlessly navigate through different functions and playback modes.

Versatility and Convenience

One of the standout features of the Sony CMT-SBT100 is its versatility. The system’s ability to switch seamlessly between various playback modes – CD, Bluetooth, USB, and DAB radio – ensures that users can access their preferred music sources with ease. The inclusion of NFC pairing simplifies the connection process, enhancing user convenience.


You can set up to 30 presets (20 FM and 10 AM) of your favorite stations on the built-in AM/FM radio. There are more radio stations here than I can ever remember listening to! Only the CMT-SBT100 remote control can be used for tuning and preset switching; not the receiver itself. So be sure to keep the remote!

DAB and DAB+ are supported by the CMT-SBT100 in nations that permit digital audio broadcasting. Unfortunately, North America does not support this.

Some of the CMT-SBT100’s features can be controlled directly from the receiver. The power on/off, input function, Bluetooth pairing, stop, play/pause, track skip/radio tuning, and CD eject buttons are among these controls. Additionally, there is a Bass Boost engage/disengage button and an EQ button for adjusting the bass and treble.

All of the aforementioned settings are adjustable with the remote, which also has a separate button for each input to make switching between them quick and simple. Additionally, there is a separate bass and treble tone button for simple adjustment. You can use the remote to search and scroll through folders on CD-R/RW and USB drives to find tracks. It is simple to determine where you are thanks to the labels that are shown on the CMT-SBT100 LCD. The audio file types that are supported are MP3, WMA, and AAC.


With the CMT-SBT100, you can set up various timers and alarms using the built-in clock. The alarm can be set to sound while playing a CD, USB, or AM/FM station. Of course, in order to use either of these, the CD or USB must be inserted. If you have trouble falling asleep, you can even choose the volume level at which you want the alarm to play. Only the remote control can be used to set the clock and alarm.
