Upgrade audio system?

I have a 2004 Outback 3.0L H6 with a GX-201KE sound system. Because of the cars age there is no USB or Bluetooth connectivity. Are there any options available for this 2004 model to upgrade the system to one that has the above mentioned connectivity?
I currently have a Belkin TuneCast FM transmitter which doesn't do a bad job but I'm looking for something more permanent.

Plug you car into Crutchfield: Car Stereo, Speakers, Home Theater, LCD TV, Digital Cameras and it will tell you what will work in you car and what will not. There will also be reviews, I just installed a Kenwood DNX570HD in my 07 and love it. The Kenwood DDX systems are nice but I figured if I'm spending the money I might as well get the navigation system. I bought mine off ebay and saved $250 off what crutchfield charges.

How is it possible to change the built-in GX-201KE sound system when there are no individual components because it appears to be one solid unit?

A new front face would replace the one that the stereo has. I believe crutchfield will even point you at one if you enter in your vehicle information correctly.
