Overview: The Pioneer
DEH-2000MP is an AM/FM/CD receiver that can
also play MP3 and WMA files on disc as well. It has a front panel
3.5mm auxiliary input for portable devices.
CEA2006 Compliant: The power specifications for the
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. The power output specs for the DEH-2000MP are as
- CEA2006 Specs: 14 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms, 20Hz-20kHz,
- Continuous Power Output:
22 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms,
50Hz-15kHz, 5% THD)
- Maximum Power Output:
50 watts x 4 channels (or 50 watts x 2
channels at 4 ohms + 70 watts x 1 channel at 2 ohms for subwoofer)
The DEH-2000MP 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.
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 level 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.
This unit can play MP3, WMA and WAV files recorded on CD-ROM, 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 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.
Compression/BMX: The Compression and BMX digital enhancement functions let you
adjust the sound quality of compressed audio file playback. You can set up to
two levels of COMP and BMX, or turn each function off.
Rough Search: During MP3/WMA/WAV playback, you can switch
between Fast Forward/Reverse method of searching to Rough search. During Rough
search, you can skip every 10 tracks of the current disc or folder. This can
speed up your search when you have discs or folders loaded with hundreds of
EEQ (Easy EQ):
The DEH-2000MP is equipped with a 3-band EQ with 6 preset EQ
Powerful, Super Bass, Vocal, Natural, Custom, and EQ Flat. The bands can be
adjusted as follows:
- Bass: +/- 13dB at 100 Hz
- Mid: +/- 12dB at 1 kHz
- Treble: +/- 12dB at 10 kHz
Auxiliary Input: The
DEH-2000MP is equipped with a front panel 3.5mm stereo minijack auxiliary input for
connecting external components, such as a portable MP3 player, DVD, or VCR. AUX must be turned on in the
setup menu in order to be selected
as a 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. Each source can be independently adjusted from
-4dB to +4dB.
LED Display: The
DEH-2000MP features a black background with a one-line, 8-character white LED 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 remains on. When the Clock Display has been turned off, pressing and
holding the source button turns the unit off completely. Even if you have turned
the radio completely off you can view the clock display be pressing the clock
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 track/tuner display.
Detachable Face Security:
This unit features Detachable Face Security. A face-fixing screw is supplied for
making the face non-detachable, if desired.
Note: No face case
is included with this unit. An optional soft face case (item #142DFC2C) can be purchased for this
Remote Control: The
comes with a wireless remote control (CXC5719). The remote allows you to control
the volume, switch between sources, pause the CD, change the display, and adjust
the audio. The attenuator button allows you to quickly lower the volume by about
90%, a function that cannot be performed from the front panel.
