Sleek, stylish, and ever so capable, Pioneer's DEH-2200UB CD receiver will improve your car's sound and allow you to you enjoy all your digital media.

The large control knob is positioned on the driver's side, flanked by a series of easy-to-reach buttons, so you won't have to drill down through the receiver's menus each time you want to make an adjustment. On the passenger side, a bright 10-digit display puts system and song info in easy view. And a handy remote gives your rear seat passengers the ability to run the show.

Plug your iPod® or thumb drive into the front-panel USB input and you'll have thousands of songs on tap for daily drives or road trips. You can also connect a plug-and-play satellite radio or another audio source to the handy front-panel auxiliary input. And don't forget your CDs — the receiver plays your favorite store-bought or home-burned CDs, including discs loaded with MP3 or WMA files.

Audio performance will take a jump when Pioneer's powerful MOSFET amplifier fills your car with sound, and you can use the 3-band equalizer to tweak the lows, mids, and highs. All your digital music will sound great, too — Pioneer's Advanced Sound Retriever technology reverses the effects of compression to improve the sound of your music files.

Note: If you're going to use your iPod with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for specific iPod model compatibility with this receiver or its optional iPod adapter.

    General features:
    • CD receiver with built-in MOSFET amplifier (14 watts RMS CEA-2006/50 peak x 4 channels)
    • plays CDs, CD-Rs, and CD-RWs, including discs loaded with MP3, and WMA files

    Why replace your factory radio?

    Two good reasons - sound quality and cool features. A new car stereo offers power that's superior to most factory radios, along with more sophisticated tone controls. And most car stereos offer built-in or optional features that add safety and fun to life in your car, including inputs for your iPod or MP3 player, Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free cell phone calls, satellite radio or HD Radio reception, and connections for building an audio system in your car.

    Coolness Factor - LOL, That just goes along with what I am about to say. Being almost 40 years old I don't care if the display is green or red, or how cool the face looks. I want to be able to set the clock without pulling out the 75 page manual. I can't stand the Multi Control / Function buttons, one button that does 17 different things depending on your mood ring settings, LOL. You have to take your eyes off the road to work this darn thing, and it treats CD music differently than USB music differently than iPod, differently than Blackberry music, so if you only listen to one media you will like it, but if you go between media it will drive you bunkers.

    Pros: plays CDs, MP3s, USB, iPod, iPhone, and Blackberry

    Cons: not user friendly, no idea what the buttons do, and I can't remember the 75 page manual

    So easy to install

    Written By Don S., La Vergne, TN on Tuesday, June 21, 2011

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Crutchfield makes the installation process relatively painless. It's probably the closest thing to 'plug and play' that you'll find anywhere. As far as quality of the receiver is can't beat the price for the features it has. Besides the fact that it plays MP3s (that allows me to have roughly four hours of music on a single disc), it also gives me the opportunity to use a jump drive (USB drive) to record even more!!! The sound quality isn't the greatest but it sure as heck beats the old factory installed, hands down. Overall, I am satisfied with my purchase and all of the extras I received. I compared prices with that big named store, and even with my 10% discount, Crutchfield still had them beat. I wouldn't hesitate to order from them (Crutchfield) again.

    The radio was a great product for the price and Crutchfield's instructions made it super simple to instal. The only thing is the settings on the radio for bass, set time is confusing and takes a lil getting use too. Overall for price great radio. Have I seen better yes.

    Not user friendly

    Written By John, Missoula Montana on Tuesday, May 03, 2011

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    The stereo is not at all user friendly. It has multi-function pushbuttons that require memorizing several procedures. The instruction manual is confusing and uses too many abreviations. I still haven't figured out how to adjust bass and treble, I can't find those words in the instructions or anywhere else.

    The installation kit is very flimsy. When I push the buttons the entire unit deflects. I can see the unit move whenever I go over a bump.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Sound quality is very good. Two things, however: Set aside some time for
    programming. The instructions are not very clear but with a little patience are
    decipherable. And most importantly, determine whether the blue and white wire in
    the radio plug (the only wire marked with a tag) is used in your application. In our
    Subaru, this wire went to the antenna amplifier. I got to do the installation twice
    because I didn't hook that up the first time.

    i chose this stereo because my Jensen stereo went out and needed a new one
    ASAP. I wasn't really concerned with features so much, as I just needed a solid
    product that wouldn't disappoint. As always, Pioneer delivers. There are no fancy
    bells or whistles on this model, but you get what you pay for, or more! I really like
    the fact that there is an iPod control built in with a USB port right on the front.

    This is the first time I ever installed a car stereo and the kit and harness
    given by Crutchfield made it very easy to install. I bought this stereo mainly
    due to the front USB and was highly disappointed that it will only function
    randomly after the song or file is over. Besides that, this stereo is well
    worth the price.

    I ended up returing in exchange for a JVC unit because:
    - poor radio reception in my particular car (a Volvo Wagon which has two antennas (called diversity) and only one can be attached to an aftermarket receiver). Hoping that the JVC will have better reception.
    - not happy with the user interface - akward to use and not straight forward
    - small tiny buttons.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Easy to install, works great for the price. As others had indicated, the buttons
    are small so if you have bigger than average fingers you might not want this
    unit. Use is not intuitive out of the box. I had to go thru the instructions a couple
    times to figure out how to work certain functions. I wanted the green lighting to
    match my existing dash lights, be aware that the green is a little more neon
    than your dash is, so not a great match, but better than the red; plus, the main
    display is white so this takes away from the "it's a stock radio look" that I was
    after, but not a real biggie...

    This stereo is really attractive, has every feature imaginable, and sounds great
    even with just factory installed speakers! It was easy to install and works like a
    charm! The only issue I have with it is, it is a little hard to figure out where all the
    buttons are because they are difficult to read in the daylight. At night it's much
    easier since they are backlit but I don't drive my car at night as often so it's been a
    bit of a learning curve. Otherwise, it's a great piece! I changed my backlight from
    red to green and I LOVE it! Thanks!

    The DEH-2200UB works great and sounds good. Installation was a snap, thanks

    If you have a fifth generation you are out of luck for iPod control!

    Written By Mainer, Maine on Monday, April 11, 2011

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This is a cool unit and I do not want to sour grape it and give it a 1 star but I was really bummed to go through all the ordering, installation, and that first excitement of firing it up and then have that smashed when I realized I cannot control the iPod (5th generation - 30gb) with the iPod itself. I have a DEH2100IB in another car and that one will let me press the 'IPod' button and control the iPod directly from the iPod.

    This might not be an important feature for you but it is huge for me. Controlling it through the unit is like looking at a flat screen tv through a soda straw. A big pain. It is just too clunky, slow, not enough info on the little unit screen, etc. It especially matters for passengers that know how to control the iPod but have no idea about the counter intuitive interface on the Pioneer unit.

    I have searched for a firmware update or something and written Pioneer but am out of luck and have to return the unit and get another model. :( There goes an installation afternoon wasted.

    I would also say that the fm station buttons and other control buttons are too dang small. I also wish the MC (large volume) knob stuck out further and had a more rubberized feel.

    The important iPod fact is NOT included in the description. I did not even know what 'generation' my iPod was so check! And if you have a fifth gen or Nano DO NOT BUY this unit!!!

    Excellent Entry Level USB Head Unit

    Written By Mike D., North Canton, OH on Friday, April 08, 2011

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I've put a Pioneer deck in every car I've owned and have never been
    disappointed. No exception here. The 2200UB is a basic head unit plus a USB
    port and an AUX in. With no bells or whistles, it is very easy to operate. If
    searching through USB audio files by name is important to you, you'll be better
    off getting something with a bigger display as the 10 character LCD makes info
    display cumbersome. The button and knob placement is excellent, so the
    likelihood of errant presses is low (even with big fingers like mine). The only
    thing keeping me issuing a 5-star rating is the face release mechanism. It
    takes a little wiggling to get the face in and out, and I don't recall the mechanism
    being this sloppy on my previous Pioneer equipment.

    This was as easy as it gets. I have installed a few stereos over the years and this whole kit was breeze. Everything is included in the box ( except solder and shrink wrap) Instructions are easy to read and follow. It took longer to solder the wires together than it did to install the unit. In less than an hour it was up and playing. The Pioneer receiver works and sounds great. All for a great price. I give Crutchfield 2 thumbs up.

    The sound quality is much better the OEM unit. The difference is phenomenal.
    I will now listen to music a lot more in my truck. The user interface took some
    getting used to, but after a few days I have it figured out. A while ago, I
    replaced the speakers as well. I don't remember the brand and model; I did buy
    them from Crutchfield. The overall package is a vast improvement, making driving
    a lot more pleasant. Also, it plays MP3's and WMA's, features missing in the
    OEM unit. Installation came off without a hitch.

    able to follow the instructions and put the radio in by myself since my husband
    was working out of town and I didn't want to wait. The biggest trick is to remember
    to not make things harder than they are. I thought it should be harder than it was

    - Best deal by far. Even compared to cheaper stereo models, current deal
    includes all the parts you need to install (usually costs an extra $15 here for
    parts, and $100 to install if you have best buy or something do it). So,
    technically it's the cheapest. Also I found I use the USB more than anything.

    - Very pleased with sound quality. I'm a bit of an audiophile, and this is above


    - Somewhat difficult to operate. I wouldn't suggest trying to pick a new artist on
    your ipod while driving on the highway. Can't really navigate by feel. Less
    intuitive, but that's about it.

    All in all, I would still definitely recommend this.

    Got this cd player from Crutchfield not too long ago. I bought (2) 5 1/4 inch
    Pioneer Speakers to go with it, for my truck. The Pioneer DEH 2200UB was
    fairly easy to use after I fiddled around with the controls for a little while. It was
    easier to access the features than most Pioneer Cd players that I have seen in
    department stores. Has nice features to enhance sound to make it louder and
    clear for you to hear, like SLA, bass, treble, mids, loudness. The cd player
    worked great, as well as the USB drive! I can't comment on the AUX feature,
    since I don't have a ipod or anything like that. For a truck , this and a set of (2)
    speakers is all you need, no additional amps needed. Overall, I am very
    pleased with this cd player! It can play very loud, and puts out good bass too!

    accompanying them. When it is dark outside, you can clearly see the lit up
    buttons and understand them. But come sunshine, and the lights for them
    disappear, and your stuck with your memory, or the remote. It is not always

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    The unit is a replacement for the stock Ford system. Easy install, good FM, borderline
    AM. We live in the mountains, fairly isolated, with only distant FM and local AM The radio
    picks up the same stations as the stock FM, which was good. The distance for the AM
    doubled over the stock, but still much less than any other car radio I have. The CD and
    mp3 work well. For the price I would recommend it.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Good sound, even through the crappy stock speakers that came with the car. My only
    complaint is that the buttons are small compared to my fat fingers.

    The radio is easy to install, as long as you are vaguely aware as to what needs to be done.
    The car-specific adapter kit is a must for a clean install. I used 3M Scotchlok UY2
    connectors for splicing the wires together, which made the connections a easy, quick, and
    corrosion-proof. You can get them at Lowes or the Depot in the electronics dept.

    All in all, a good buy for $100.00.

    This radio has great sound and features. The issue is the size of the control buttons (very
    small) so they are hard to read. I guess once you have used it a while you get to know what
    button does what. The other issue (which is probably common to most) are the many hidden
    menus to access to set certain functions.

    I had the monsoon head unit on my vw new beetle and vw considers that premium sound,
    once I installed this deck the sound is amazing. I didn't know those speakers had so much
    potential with a good head unit. Installation was really quick, I looked around for good cheap
    head units and this was the best value with everything for installation included.

    I actually asked for this as a Christmas present (one of the only things I asked
    for because my stock player in my car was dead).. I read a lot of reviews here,
    as well as other places...and I have to say - When people say it makes their
    stock speakers sound amazing - they aren't exaggerating. The audio can be
    completely fine tuned and shaped to sound crisp and clear and full just like it

    The menu is a LITTLE hard to get through but with the help of the book it's not
    too bad.

    I loaded up my 4gb thumb drive with 1.3 gigs worth of mp3s and plugged it in,
    and sure enough it worked perfect. Just couldn't be happier with it so far.
    Highly recommend!

    I only gave it a four star review because I'm sure there's a lot better out
    there...but for the money this thing is awesome.

    A good overall unit but not for me. The FM reception is poor as compared to the
    04 Pioneer DEH-1600 that this unit was to replace. The lighting of the buttons
    at night is so small that you cant see what the button is for unless you have
    committed them to memory. The owners manual doesn't show how to exit out of
    setting up the unit, just leaves you hanging after you make the adjustments.

    didn't cost anything but a little time.

    With the help of the free dash plastic trim, the wiring harness and the instructions, I had
    this installed in my 2007 Mitsubishi Eclipse RS within 45 minutes from start to finish,
    including removing the old unit. It was easy, easy, easy!! Once I got the stereo up and
    running, it took me a few days to navigate usage as I am not a manual reader. I should
    do that since I have yet to set the clock. The sound of the stereo surpasses the stock
    stereo by leaps and bounds and I've decided NOT to replace the stock speakers
    because the sound is awesome!! In addition, it works terrifically with the iPod portion
    my iPhone 4. I get to navigate my playlists from the head unit as opposed to thumbing
    through my phone. Easy! Couldn't love it more!

    Excellent stereo. If you are looking for a display that will show you everything about the
    MP3 title, without cutting off, get a more expensive unit. Even though you can only display
    the first 10 characters of your File/track name, it is enough to let me know what track is
    playing if I even care about it. It suits my needs perfectly for the price I wanted to pay.
    Obviously everyone wants the best, but it is not always in reach. This stereo also made
    my stock speakers sound really good. Im in love with this thing allready. I have about
    45G worth of music at my finger tips, just on a few 16G SD cards via USB port.
    Awesome response time between USB drive and processor (click on song, plays it

    After researching car stereos for weeks, I decided this was the best fit for me, and what a great decision that was! A local retailer said that they could sell me the stereo and all the installation materials for $50 more than crutchfield's price! With crutchfield, you get installation guides and all the materials needed for installation all for one base price!
    Easy installation (even for a novice like myself), and works great with the iPod too.
    Overall probably the best stereo for its value out sounds great!

    I researched head units with a list of desired features and this one stood out. I soldered
    my Crutchfield Subaru harness to the Pioneer wiring harness and sealed the joints with
    shrink wrap tubing. For my Impreza, all the wire insulation colors of both harnesses were
    a perfect match. I did not need the blue/white wire (for power antennae) and screwed the
    Pioneer ground to the car's DIN mounting plate, instead of the black ground wire from the
    supplied Subaru harness, and it works great. The sound improvement over the stock HU
    is incredible, even with stock speakers and OEM subwoofer. The unit's loudness and EQ
    settings are great.
    I use the USB connection all the time with a flash drive, that was a major selling point for
    me. The random play feature works absolutely fine. I don't mind the small operating
    buttons because I have slim fingers! All in all, I'm very happy with this unit for the price and
    it does what I want it to do.

    I bought this radio because I felt like the Factory Installed radio from 1999
    Ford had a short that was draining by Truck batteries. Luckily I was correct,
    but as an added benefit the sound from this radio is so much better than the
    stock radio that came with the truck. I had experience with Crutchfield years
    ago and had been pleased with their pricing and support then and was again
    pleased. Everything you need (except basic wire splicers), is included, plus,
    you have phone Tech. support, if needed. I had this radio installed in 45 mins.
    I could have bought this radio at local retailers for about the same price, but

    Since money is tight everywhere, I wasn't about to waste money on a stereo. If I'm going to spend some cash, it had better be a good, solid stereo with plenty of "extras". I looked for about 2 weeks for an affordable stereo to replace my factory one, and decided on this Pioneer. Great decision! The sound from my factory speakers is awesome! I just wonder how great it will sound once I replace the factory speakers...

    The USB port is really handy. Just throw some songs on a jump drive, plug it in, and go! Plus, when you take the jump drive out and plug it back in later, it goes directly to where you left off! Oh yeah, and you can plug in your iPod using the aux port. What's not to love?

    I'd never installed a car stereo before, and installation was easy. I had to call tech support simply for some guidance, but it was a snap!

    As always, delivery and support are great.

    If you are looking for a unit that works great, has plenty of extras and doesn't cost a lot of dough, this is it. You won't regret this one. Go ahead and put it in your cart and go!

    Oh, I loved the 6 changer that came with my 2003 Honda CRV EX; but it went the way of all mechanicals, seeing it was beyond economic repair, the victim of one ham-handed CD load too many, I said my solemn goodbyes to the old technology I had become so comfortable with and decided it was time to upgrade and get with the times. I kept hearing and seeing good things about the Pioneer DEH 2200UB. The last time I installed car audio was with a AM/FM Cassette player and CB on my brand new '77 Chevy Nova, but Crutchfield really made the difference in making it easy. The 2200 UB has great sound selections - there's a number of pre-set voicings, plus a "custom" setting you can set to your own preferences. My CDs sound much better than they did on the Honda unit. It also forces me to update to USB or Ipod, but who am I kidding? It was past time.

    Pioneer could improve this by
    1) making their making their product manual more straight forward and in a larger print
    2) Let the clock display WITHOUT having to hit a button
    3) making the buttons larger for my fat fingers and so I can find them without reading glasses when I drive.
    But the looks, sound and predicted reliability of this unit was easily worth it, even more so because I was able to save at least $100 by installing if myself - and , I love the remote!

    Absolutely Amazing for the Price

    Written By The Happy Customer, Minnesota on Sunday, October 03, 2010

    Let me just begin by saying I ordered this product along with 2 sets of Kicker 07DS600 door speakers. Crutchfield's predicted arrival date was spot on. I Installed the speakers that night but simply did not have the time to put in the dash unit. I was pretty happy with the sound of the speakers alone. Two days later I went ahead with the installation of the head unit (made very simple following the instructions from Crutchfield - I was surprised these directions were correct to my car). I really appreciated that Crutchfield also sent the Wiring Harness adapter for my car (Saturn SL1 - 2002) making crimping of wires the only time consuming part of this installation. Any troubles that showed up during this process was only due to the make and model of my car.. not the unit or Crutchfield. But anyways this head unit amplified the sound of those speakers by tenfold and made the music in my car more crisp and clear than I could have ever dreamed. I notice there are some complaints about the randomize feature(basically what happens is when you click "next song button" while in random mode, the device plays the next song on the playlist... not a random one) but I can deal with it for the price. Menus are easy to navigate, great sound output, sleek and stylish look, you can't go wrong for the price.

    This Pioneer radio is pretty good overall. I got it to replace my factory 2003 Civic radio so I could play my new iPod on it. The sound and settings are much better than the factory radio. There are only a few things that I don't care for: the small buttons are not reasonable for anyone over the age of 3, the backlighting is not visible when it's daylight (which makes some of the buttons unreadable), and the iPod controls take some getting used to. I highly recommend it if those things don't bother you at all.

    Unbelieveable sound

    Written By Dave K, Chicago, IL on Sunday, September 26, 2010

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I've put probably 15 aftermarket stereos in different cars (not all mine), and this is hands
    down the best one I've ever installed (I just put it in my 2001 Focus). I'm a musician and
    music afficionado, and I am hearing things I never heard before in songs I've been
    listening to for years. I almost can't wait to get into my car and drive so I can turn the
    stereo on. Plus I put it in at work during lunch and the guys in the warehouse were
    shocked that it only toook 40 minutes (I did the speakers a few days later, that took
    about an hour).

    The features are for the most part intuitive. The instruction manual is well-enough
    written to get you through stuff like setting the clock, tweaking the EQ, and turning the
    unit on and off. The rest is plug and play... literally. Plug in a flash drive or ipod? It
    automatically reads it and starts at the first song. Unplug your flash drive and take it with
    you, come back, listen to five CDs, and plug it back in? It automatically goes right back to
    where you left off.

    If you're looking for a great sounding (and looking!) stereo at a great price, stop looking
    and buy this one. You will NOT be sorry. And don't forget to buy new speakers with all the
    money you just saved.

    I recently got a new car ,used, and still had the stock radio in. I have owned Pioneer head units before and I have been very pleased so i wasnt worried about this purchase. Crutchfield, A+ as always, and this CD is player is fantastic. Very clean, simple to use, makes the stock speakers in the car sound much better, though my aftermarkets are in the mail now. Settings are simple and able to tweak things for your kind of music. One thing I would change is the sound settings are only changeable through the remote, so if you lose it, you better find a new one. The IPOD and AUX port on the front are a big plus also. I can plug in my IPOD or my phone to listen to Pandora if i need a change. Very easy setup with OEM wiring harness and kit from crutchfield. This has been one of the best purchases i have made in a while for a very simple but does everything you need it to aftermarket stero.

    Excellent reciever, and by today's standards pretty easy to use. I love the front USB port for my thumbdrive, changing up playlists is easy now. The only caution I would have is for someone installing this in a later model car, you'll have 12 or so wire splices to make. If you don't know how to solder, it'll be a bigger ball of connectors. Allow plenty of time for making the splices so you have a good job when you're done. Overall, I can't believe the whole setup, including the interface I needed to purchase was only this much.

    tighter by cutting into the sleeve and making my own notches to push up on to
    hold it in the dash. I have not used the AUX input but it is conveniently there
    for when I purchase an ipod. I do have a complaint though. The information like

    clock. I would highly recommend this head unit to anyone in the market.

    Numerous reviews have commented on the random feature and I have not found the
    issue. When I am listening to a playlist (or entire library) on random and skip
    to the next song, it is a random song in the playlist, not the next song in my
    library. Perhaps Pioneer has fixed the issue, or user's iPod settings are
    causing the problem.
