Disc Compatibility: The
Pioneer DEH-150MP supports audio playback of CD-Audio, CD-TEXT, CD-R, and CD-RW discs.
MP3/WMA/WAV Playback: This unit can play MP3, WMA and WAV
files recorded on CD-R and CD-RW discs in ISO9660 Level 1/Level 2,
Joliet, and Romeo formats. MP3 files with a bit rate from 8-320 kbps, WMA files
with a constant bit rate from 48-320 kbps, and WMA files with a variable bit
rate from 48-384 kbps are supported. The unit also supports 8/16-bit WAV files. The unit is compatible with ID3 Tags and
will display artist, folder, file, and album name, plus comments. Up to 8
directories, 99 folders and 999 files per disc are recognized by this unit.
File/Track Name List: The Name List feature displays a list
of MP3/WMA folders and tracks on a loaded CD, so you can easily access your
music. The Name List will also display the list of track titles on a CD Text
Off Insert/Eject: A CD disc can be inserted or ejected with
the power off. When a disc is inserted with the power off, the unit will
automatically power up and begin playback.
Auto Off Eject: When you eject a disc, the unit will
automatically power off (unless you switch sources before ejecting the disc).
Installation Angle: Optimum CD playback performance is obtained when the unit is
installed at an angle of less than 60-degrees.
IIID AM/FM Tuner: The Supertuner IIID features
Feed Forward Control, which avoids multi-path interference. This pre-detection
of interference enables quick filter control and results in less distortion. In
addition, the Supertuner IIID creates enhanced stereo during multi-path
interference, unlike conventional tuners that collapse to mono. Digital
processing reduces distortion, and improves Signal-to-Noise Ratio and stereo
separation. Advanced analog technology improves signal processing sensitivity.
BSM (Best Stations Memory): The BSM (Best Stations Memory) function
lets you automatically store the six strongest stations under preset buttons 1-6
of the currently tuned band. The tuner has 3 FM banks and 1 AM bank. You can
store 6 presets for each bank giving you a total of 18 FM presets and 6 AM
Local Tuning: Local seek tuning
lets you tune in only those radio stations with sufficiently strong signals for
good reception. There are 4 levels of sensitivity for FM and two levels for AM.
The higher settings allow reception of only the strongest stations, while lower
settings let you receive progressively weaker stations.
RDS: The Radio Data System (RDS) feature displays radio
broadcast information such as artist, title, and album when listening to
compatible AM/FM stations.
Auxiliary Input: The DEH-150MP is equipped with a front
panel 3.5mm stereo minijack auxiliary input for connecting external components,
such as a portable digital audio player.
24 Bit D/A Converter: The Pioneer in-dash head unit utilizes
a 24-bit digital to analog converter for superior sound quality.
The DEH-150MP is equipped with a MOSFET amplifier. Compared to conventional power
supplies, the MOSFET amplification circuit is smaller and more efficient, and it
delivers increased power with less distortion and absolutely zero on/off
switching noise. More power means louder and cleaner music at higher volumes
because you're not pushing the limits of the amplification circuit. The power
specifications for the DEH-150MP are compliant with the CEA2006 Mobile Amplifier
Power Testing and Measurement standards from the Consumer Electronics
Association (CEA). These standards were developed as a way to equitably compare
power specs from model to model and between manufacturers.
- CEA2006 Specs: 14 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms,
20Hz-20kHz, 1% THD-N)
- Continuous Power Output: 22 watts RMS x 4 channels (at
4 ohms, 50Hz-15kHz, 5% THD)
- Maximum Power Output: 50 watts x 4 channels
Advanced Sound Retriever: The Advanced Sound Retriever
automatically enhances compressed audio and restores the original richness of
the recording. Hear the detail, warmth, and clarity, the way the artist intended
it, from all of your highly compressed MP3 and WMA files. By restoring data
(especially higher frequencies) that tends to get lost in the digital
compression process, Pioneer's Advanced Sound Retriever technology enhances
audio reproduction nearly all the way up to 20 kHz frequencies
Equalizer: The Pioneer DEH-150MP features a Preset & Custom
EQ. The built-in equalizer offers 7 preset sound modes (Powerful, Dynamic, Vocal, Natural,
Custom 1, Custom 2, and Flat) suitable for the music genre of your choice. The
two Custom modes allow you to manually adjust the head unit's 5-band EQ (80Hz, 250Hz, 800Hz, 2.5kHz, 8kHz) from +/-6dB.
Custom 1 can be set separately for each source;
while Custom 2 and the other 5 presets are shared settings used for all sources.
Bass Boost The DEH-150MP features a bass boost function
which can be used to enhance low-frequency bass sound. The bass boost function
can be set between 0-6.
Loudness: The Loudness feature compensates for deficiencies in the low
and high sound ranges at low volume. You can set the Loudness feature to Low,
Mid, High, or Off.
Level Adjustment (SLA): This function lets
you adjust the volume level of each source to prevent radical changes in volume
when switching between sources. Settings are based on the volume level of the FM
tuner, which remains unchanged. Each source can be independently adjusted from
-4dB to +4dB.
2.0-Volt Preamp Outputs: The Pioneer DEH-150MP features one
pair of 2.0-volt preamp outputs. The unit's preamp outputs can be configured as
fading rear-channel outputs or non-fading subwoofer outputs with a low-pass
filter, phase adjustment, and output level control.
Subwoofer Control: When the head unit's preamp output is configured as
a subwoofer output, you can select the frequency of the low pass
filter (50Hz, 63Hz, 80Hz, 100Hz, or 125 Hz), select the filter slope (-6/-12dB), select the subwoofer phase
(normal/reverse), and the subwoofer gain (+6 to -24).
High-Pass Crossover: When you don't want low-frequency sound to be heard through your front or rear
speakers, you can simply active the head unit's HPF (high pass filter). By
activating the HPF, only frequencies higher than those in the selected range are
output from the front or rear speakers. The high pass filter crossover can be
set to 50Hz, 63Hz, 80Hz, 100Hz, 125Hz, 160hz, 200Hz or Off. The slope level of
the HPF can also be adjusted to -6dB or 12dB.
Switchable Rear Channel/Subwoofer Speaker Output: The rear
speaker outputs can be set to provide full range output with full fading
capability, or they can be set to provide non-fading subwoofer (low-pass)
output. When the rear speaker outputs are set to subwoofer mode, the rear preamp
outputs also switch from full range to subwoofer outputs. When set for subwoofer
operation, you can connect the rear speaker leads directly to two small 4-ohm
passive subwoofers or a dual voice coil sub with 4-ohm voice coils. If you
prefer to use a single 2-ohm subwoofer, you can connect the woofer to one set of
speaker leads, leaving the other set of rear leads disconnected. The maximum
output provided when a 2-ohm load is connected to one set of leads is 70 watts.
Detachable Face Security: This unit features detachable face
security. No face case is included with this unit. An
optional soft face case (142DFC1X,
sold separately) can be purchased for this unit.
LCD w/ LED Backlight: The DEH-150MP features a black background with
a one-line, 12-character white LCD with LED backlight.
Display Illumination/Clock Display: When the Clock Display
has been turned on, pressing and holding the "SRC" button turns off audio
output, but the clock display and button illumination remains on (you can press
the "DISP" button to turn off). When the Clock Display has been turned off,
pressing and holding the "SRC" button turns the unit off completely. Even if you
have turned the radio completely off you can view the clock display by pressing
the "DISP" button. The clock will then remain On until you turn it back Off.
When the unit is On, you can select between the clock display or the audio
Remote Control: The DEH-150MP comes with an IR wireless
remote control. The remote allows you to control the volume, switch between
sources, pause the CD, change the display, and adjust the audio. You can also
mute the volume (function that
cannot be performed from the front panel).
