Pioneer kicks off its line of ever-popular and dependable CD receivers with the DEH-1600. It offers four channels of clean MOSFET power (22 watts RMS per channel) to make your CDs, CD-Rs, and CD-RWs sound great.

The unbeatable Supertuner IIID AM/FM tuner delivers incredibly clear reception. Pioneer added digital processing to one of the industry's best tuners for even better station-grabbing selectivity and more spacious stereo sound.

Make the music sound right at home in your car with Pioneer's famous Easy EQ. It has five preset tone curves for quick and easy sound-fixing, plus a 3-band parametric equalizer for more "down and dirty" adjustments. A sixth preset lets you save your favorite custom EQ settings. The detachable faceplate's display is backlit in blue so it's easy to see, even in bright sunlight.

Features

MOSFET50 Internal Amplifier: This receiver is equipped with a 50 watts x 4 (peak) MOSFET amplifier for low distortion, high power output. The amplifier is strong enough to power small subwoofers to moderate volume levels in compact cars and pickups. For higher volume levels from subwoofers, an optional amplifier may be connected to the preamp outputs.

Easy EQ Curves: This model has "SUPER BASS", "POWERFUL", "NATURAL", "VOCAL", "CUSTOM", and "FLAT" preset EQ curves. The "CUSTOM" curve is one that you create and store in memory.

3-Band Parametric Equalizer: This unit includes a 3-band parametric EQ with Selectable Q Factor. You may select a low (40, 80, 100 or 160Hz), mid (200, 500, 1k or 2kHz) and high frequency (3k, 8k, 10k or 12kHz) to boost or cut within a range of -6dB to +6dB. The Q factor (slope of the boost or cut) may be selected from one of the following four options: 2N (narrow), 1N, 1W and 2W (wide). Selecting a narrow (steep) Q factor results in frequencies around the center frequency to be affected less by the boost or cut than they are with a wide Q factor. This feature is useful for taming frequency response problems caused by the dimensions, materials and speaker locations of a vehicle.

F.I.E. (Front Image Enhancer): This feature enhances the front image by cutting mid- and high-range frequencies to the rear speakers, limiting their output to low-range frequencies. You may select a cutoff frequency of 100, 160 or 250Hz.

Adjustable Loudness: You can select Low, Mid or High for different levels of loudness compensation.

Source 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.

CD-R/CD-RW Skip Function: Some CD-R/W recorders allow you to assign skip ID tags to tracks that you never want to hear. When a track has been assigned a track skip ID, compatible units will recognize the skip ID information and skip over that track. This player recognizes track skip IDs, so CD-R and CD-RW discs with skip ID information will be played back as intended.

Supertuner 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.

Note

Display Illumination/Clock Display: When the Clock Display has been turned on, pressing and holding the source button turns off audio output, but the clock display and face/button illumination remain on. When the Clock Display has not been turned on, pressing and holding the source button turns the unit off completely. This unit's illumination and clock are "keyed" only when the Clock Display has been turned on.
