A sleek, versatile platform
Pioneer offers a fresh take on the lower-priced end of their car stereo lineup, and their DEH-2500UI CD receiver is strong on style and performance. Pioneer made the 12-character LCD display much larger so you can scope out song and artist info with a quick glance. The prominent buttons make it easy to access the intuitive menus and controls so you can get to the songs you want quickly.
Support for iPhone®
Plug your iPhone into the front USB port and you can enjoy your music while keeping your phone charged. You can also control your Pandora® Internet radio stations from the receiver, including "thumbs up" and "thumbs down."
Plenty of power plus sound customization
This Pioneer's MOSFET amplifier uses special transistors to deliver plenty of usable "real world" power — more than most factory car radios — so you'll enjoy crisp and clear sound even at highway speeds. And to tweak your tunes, you'll love the extra control afforded by the 5-band equalizer, 3-level loudness, and built-in frequency filters.
Pioneer's Advanced Sound Retriever reverses the compression process to add back some of the sonic info that's lost in the digital conversion. You'll notice a nice improvement in the sound quality of your MP3 and WMA music, whether it's stored on an iPod, a disc, or a thumb drive.
