leave a comment »

SINGAPORE/PRNewswire/ — Pioneer Electronics Asia Centre, a leader in car infotainment, today announced its 2017 in-car receivers based on new hardware platforms to enable more advanced features and enhanced audio reproduction. 11 models are available — the 1-DIN DEH-X1950UB, DEH-X1952UB, DEH-X1953UB, DEH-X2950UI, DEH-X3950BT, DEH-X4950BT, and DEH-X7850BT CD receivers and their MVH-X195UI, MVH-X395BT, MVH-X585BT digital media version, as well as the 2-DIN FH-X785BT CD receiver.

“Pioneer is committed to creating the best driving experience, and these new receivers reflect our effort. Through continual research and development, we now allow our customers to conveniently customise their sound system, while adding more popular apps and content to the existing mix,” said Mr. Takao Chiba, Deputy General Manager of Business Planning and Marketing Division, Sales & Marketing Group, Pioneer Electronics Asia Centre.

The new Pioneer receivers boast the following new standout features:


A 13-band equaliser (EQ)[1], touting twice the number of adjustable frequencies than most car EQs, provides more precise sound tweaking. Meanwhile, a newly incorporated 3-way network mode[2] can significantly enhance treble, vocal and bass separation for greater finesse, by seamlessly integrating a tweeter, mid-range driver, and woofer.


Pioneer ARC[3], the company’s do-it-all mobile application, has also been updated to take full advantage of the 13-band EQ and 3-way network mode. Version 2.2.0 now supports new EQ and advanced settings, like crossover and speaker levels, which can be easily customised via an intuitive “touch-and-slide” interface with zoom capability. A newly introduced fader/balance setting lets users tune both parameters effortlessly and concurrently. ARC also now supports third-party apps, such as Google Maps, Waze, Spotify, and YouTube, allowing users to access more content.

50% to 60% smaller than uncompressed WAV files, but without sacrificing the original sound quality, FLAC is the most popular lossless audio format favoured by music lovers and audiophiles. With 24-bit/96KHz FLAC[4] support, drivers and their passengers can enjoy unadulterated tunes, touting the full dynamism and nuances of studio recordings.


Spotify[5], currently available in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines with more Southeast Asian countries in the pipeline, maintains a massive library of over 30 million titles[6]. Playback can also be conveniently controlled directly from the dashboard or a connected smartphone, leveraging USB (iOS) or Bluetooth (Android) connection.


The enhanced wide-view display[8] is not only physically wider, but also provides increased clarity and situational awareness. The latter includes new artist, album and song icons, animated music EQ graphic and a Smartphone Link status icon.


DEH-X1953UB, DEH-X2950UI, DEH-X3950BT and DEH-X4950BT are equipped with a USB port that outputs up to 1.5 amperes, significantly reducing the time required to recharge the latest Android smartphones compared to most CD receivers.


An exclusive feature for the DEH-X2950UI and DEH-X4950BT, users can select their choice of colour to illuminate this dial to enhance the mood inside the car cabin, while its unique styling gives the head unit a premium look and feel.

Here are other notable innovations and key highlights:

MIXTRAX — Pioneer’s revolutionary MIXTRAX® virtual DJ technology designed to transform a music library into a nonstop DJ mix, inserting transitions and effects automatically to string together tunes from an iPhone, iPod or USB storage device. The dashboard’s illumination and display can also pulsate and change colour, according to the music tempo and intensity to recreate an invigorating club experience.
Comprehensive Bluetooth functions[9] — Two-Phone Bluetooth Pairing enables up to two phones to be connected simultaneously for hands-free voice calls. With Wireless Audio Browsing[10], drivers can search their music library via the head unit display without touching the smartphone[11], providing greater user convenience and a safer drive.
