Default Sony question for the Sony experts

I replaced my stock ford CD radio with a Sony CDX-GT25MPW with XPlode.It has a front plug in-jack for (Front-AUX -IN)input.but What I'm wanting to do is add a sony 6 disk CD changer.In my old F150 I had a Pioneer cassette and a seperate 10disk CD changer.I had it insalled at a local car audio superstore(cuircit city i think).I dont want any wires sticking out that I have to plug in to the front of the unit.Anybody know if this model sony has the capabilliy of direct connection of a changer?
(I only bought a sony because that was all I could afford when the stock one went sideways on me,now I'm financially able to go back to a pioneer if it will be easier)

Looking at the manual online, it looks like the only input is the front aux input.
I know some head units have built in changer controls & connections.

One alternative would be to see if the changer you're looking at has an antenna adapter. The output of the changer plugs into your head unit's antenna. It will play your CD's & broadcast them on a certain radio station. Tune your radio to that station & listen away.
The downside is that you'll have a control of some sort with the changer that you'll need to mount in an easy to see/use location.

You could always get a cheap mp3 player & a 3.5mm stereo cable to plug into your head unit.

Holy Crap Batman!

My last Sony took all of 30 minutes to install... most of that was getting all the other stuff disconnected from my bezel.

Check out Crutchfield... I've bought from them for about 20 years.
Good selection, great service... prices can be a bit higher but I've never had an issue with their stuff.
I got my new Sony H/U from Amazon, it was about $40 cheaper than Crutchfield, but I didn't need all the extra dash kit, wiring, etc that Crutchfield supplies.
