New digital media receivers: the future of car entertainment
Introducing 2 digital media receivers: MVH-7300 and MVH-8300BT from mid February. These stylish and sophisticated multimedia centres are made to enjoy music and movies on the road without having to take CDs or DVDs into your car.
The MVH-7300 and MVH-8300BT are specifically designed for the sources which are used most – whether that’s iPod, iPhone, USB, SD or other portable video and music sources via Aux-in. Now, the MVH-7300 also supports DivX video playback from SD and USB. .
Both are single DIN receivers that feature an elegant 3-inch full-colour TFT Display. To add a personal touch, the display’s background and screen colours can be customised. As well as providing great video playback quality, it gives full access to all the playlists, album art, videos and more on a connected iPod or iPhone.
The fantastic new “App mode” enables listening to music or watching video content from various iPhone and iPod touch Apps, including games, video, internet radio, musical instrument simulators etc., provided the App supports analogue audio or video output.
Pioneer’s highly regarded 7-way Rotary Commander enables straightforward navigation and control. It allows the user to browse or search through lists and quickly jump to new functions using just one handy dial.
USB and SD card slot on front panel
Perfect video playback is complemented by excellent audio quality. Both units offer playback of MP3, WMA and iTunes AAC music files via USB and SD memory card. For easy access, the USB port is located directly on the front panel of the receivers and the SD memory card slot is positioned discreetly behind the partially detachable front panel. With SDHC compatibility as well (32GB), it’s easy to take a whole library of film and video entertainment along on a journey.
Pioneer equipped the digital media receivers with its Advanced Sound Retriever (ASR) to enhance the listening experience, particularly for compressed digital formats. This patented technology helps to restore the musical details lost when compressed music files are created. The inclusion of an 8-band graphic equalizer provides the ability to adjust the sound of the system to suit the vehicle and listener, while dedicated hi-volt (4V) pre-amp outputs for front, rear, and subwoofer add to the overall system building flexibility. You can also tailor the sound even further by using the optional CZX-5497A Auto EQ mic to calibrate the sound to match the vehicles interior.
For the ultimate in hands-free safety and convenience, the MVH-8300BT integrates a Parrot Bluetooth module, making it easy to stay in touch while on the road. When paired with a compatible SD mobile phone users can enjoy safe, hands-free communications enabling them to hear the conversation through the vehicle’s speakers while their voice is broadcast through the included external microphone, which guarantees optimum speech quality.
