EXPANDED MEDIA ACCESS

COSMETIC DESIGN AND FUNCTIONALITY (all models)
The cosmetics of the new receivers were revamped to offer a sleeker, more modern look with refinements on brightness and custom illumination. Pioneer increased the brightness control providing 10-step intensity levels for easier visualization and operation. All models (except DEH-X4700BT, DEH-X2700UI and MVH-X370BT) offer Dual Zone Color Illumination and are customizable with more than 210,000 color variations to match the vehicle’s interior lighting. The receivers also include an illumination timer which can be set to automatically change dimmer settings at specified times, ideal for vehicles without a dedicated illumination output wire. For better sound quality and system flexibility the models are built with MOSFET 50W x 4 speaker outputs and up to three sets of RCA pre-outs.
