New Pioneer slim micro system redefines creative freedom
March 1, 2013
Melsele, Belgium (March 1, 2013) – Pioneer Europe is pleased to announce the release of the first model in its 2013 Slim Micro Systems series. With its interchangeable front panels, the sleek X SMC00 easily adapts to any interior décor, while offering superior sound quality. Small in size but big on performance and versatility, the new micro system features a built-in CD player, FM radio tuner, iPhone/iPod dock, front USB input, Audio-in and headphone jack. Variants include the X-SMC00DAB with integrated DAB tuner and the X-SMC00BT featuring Bluetooth for wireless music streaming from any Bluetooth-enabled device.
The new Pioneer micro system comes with an integrated dock for iPod/iPhone that charges the device while it plays. An included stand will hold the iPhone 5 while it connects through USB. The system has an auxiliary 3.5mm input and headphone jack to easily connect other music players. A digital clock is shown on the display with a push of a button on the remote, and the unit can be used as an alarm.
The X-SMC00’s streamlined black housing can be tailored to personal taste or interior design with interchangeable front panels in contemporary silver (default panel), black or pearl white. The faceplate that forms the centre of the micro system doubles as a motorised front door, hiding the CD compartment, and can be clipped on/off in a few seconds to change the look of the unit. Key holes on the system’s back panel give users freedom to either mount the system on a wall or display it on its stand.
Underneath the Pioneer X-SMC00’s refined housing are two full-range speakers rated at 10W RMS each. If that’s not enough power, the system offers a bass enhancer and an adjustable equaliser to maximise every performance.
