Looking for some in-dash flash? The DEH-P7400MP CD receiver boasts Pioneer's revolutionary Organic EL display, with its ultra-high resolution, exciting graphics, and wide viewing angle (no more squinting in bright sunlight). If you're an Internet music fan, this versatile receiver plays MP3 files recorded on CD-R and CD-R/Ws — with the ability to store up to 200 song files (approximately 10 hours of music) per disc, it's like having a CD changer in your dash.

The built-in MOSFET50 amp will fire up your speakers. Make tone adjustments with Easy EQ's 5 preset curves and 3-band equalizer, or improve your imaging with Sound Focus EQ's independent front/rear tone settings. You'll find front and preamp outputs for connection to outboard amps — the rear outputs can be switched from subwoofer to full-range operation.

The Supertuner III is celebrated for its excellent AM/FM reception, and the DEH-P7400MP also includes XM Satellite Radio controls (XM tuner, antenna, and subscription required). For multi-disc excitement, connect an optional Pioneer CD changer . A wireless remote is included.

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.

Features

Organic EL Display: The OEL display features incredible brightness, clear readability, wide-angle viewing and full-motion 3D graphics. Because OEL creates its own electroluminescent light, its brightness is resistant to washing out in sunlight.

Entertainment Display Modes: You may select one of the following 9 Entertainment Display Modes: Background Visual 1 (spinning 3-dimensional cube with a grid background), Background Visual 2 (moving pistons), Background Visual 3 (moving geometric shapes), Background Visual 4 (spinning curved lines), Level Indicator 1 (two analog VU meters), Level Indicator 2 (two level meters), Movie Screen 1 (swimming dolphins), Movie Screen 2 (Formula 1 racing), or Entertainment Clock (pendulum clock).

Display Brightness: The display brightness can be adjusted from 0 to 15.

Demo Modes: This unit has a Reverse Demo Mode and a Feature Demo Mode. In Reverse Demo Mode, if you do not perform an operation for a period of 30 seconds, the display begins reversing colors. It continues reversing colors every 10 seconds until a button is pushed. When the unit is turned off, the Feature Demo Mode is activated. The Feature Demo Mode displays the unit's different features and capabilities using moving graphics.

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 provided sets of preamp outputs.

XM Satellite Radio Tuner Compatible: This unit can control the optional Pioneer XM tuner (sold separately). The optional tuner will allow you to receive XM Satellite Radio. XM Satellite Radio programming will feature up to 100 channels of digital-quality music, news, talk, sports, entertainment, and children's programming. XM will transmit these channels from its studios directly to consumers nationwide via two high-powered commercial satellites. For monthly subscription fee, you will be able to receive the XM signal in your car and home using small car phone-sized antennas and XM-capable radios. 

Easy EQ Curves: This model has "SUPER BASS", "POWERFUL", "NATURAL", "VOCAL", "CUSTOM 1", "CUSTOM 2" and "FLAT" preset EQ curves. The "CUSTOM" curves are ones that you create and store in memory; a different "CUSTOM 1" curve may be set for each source, and the "CUSTOM 2" curve is one that will be the same for all sources.

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 (3.15k, 8k, 10k or 12.5kHz) 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.

Selectable Bass and Treble Cut-off Frequencies: The cut-off frequencies for the bass and treble controls can be set independently of the 3-band parametric equalizer adjustments. The bass cut-off frequency can be set to 40Hz, 63Hz, 100Hz or 160Hz. The treble cut-off frequency can be set to 2.5kHz, 4kHz, 6.3kHz or 10kHz. The bass and treble controls have an adjustment range of -6 to +6. 

Sound Focus Equalizer (SFEQ): The SFEQ feature is made to enhance the soundstage in the front of the vehicle by increasing the clarity of vocals and instruments. There are two primary SFEQ modes ("FRT1" and "FRT2"), and there is a "CUSTOM" mode. The "FRT1" mode boosts the treble on the front outputs while boosting the bass on the rear outputs; when this mode is selected, treble adjustments affect the front channels only, and bass adjustments affect only the rear channels. The "FRT2" mode boosts the treble and bass on the front outputs while boosting only the bass on the rear outputs; when this mode is selected, treble adjustments affect the front channels only, and bass adjustments affect the front and rear channels. You may select "HI" or "LOW" operation for the "FRT1" and "FRT2" modes; the "HI" setting of each mode provides a more pronounced effect than the "LOW" setting. If you adjust the bass or treble setting while an SFEQ mode is on, the adjustment is applied to the selected SFEQ mode and that setting is kept in memory as the "CUSTOM" SFEQ mode. The SFEQ feature also includes a seating position setting that helps tailor the sound to where people are sitting in the vehicle. 

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

High-pass Filter: When you don't want sound in the subwoofer frequency range output from the front and rear speakers, you may activate the built-in high-pass filter. You may select a filter frequency of 50Hz, 80Hz, or 125Hz.

Source Level Adjustment (SLA): This function prevents radical leaps in volume when switching between sources. To use this function, you compare the volume level of the different sources (AM, CD/Changer) to the FM level, then you can adjust each source level to match the FM level. Since the reference level is based on the FM volume, SLA is not possible on FM.

MP3 Playback: This unit can play MP3 files recorded on CD-ROM, CD-R, and CD-RW discs in ISO9660 Level 1/Level 2, Joliet, and Romeo formats. This unit is compatible with constant and variable bit rates from 16kbps to 320kbps. During MP3 playback, the following functions are available:

  • Folder up/down
  • Track up/down
  • Track audible search
  • Folder Repeat Play: repeats the current folder
  • Track Repeat Play: repeats the current track
  • Disc Repeat Play: repeats the entire disc
  • Random Play: all tracks in all folders are played in random order
  • Folder Random Play: all tracks in the current folder are played in random order
  • Folder Scan Play: plays the first 10 seconds of each folder
  • Track Scan Play: plays the first 10 seconds of each track in the selected folder
  • Pause
  • ID3 Tag Display: displays ID3 Tag information for tracks that have been recorded with ID3 tag information

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.

CD Text Capable: When used with a CD Text encoded CD, this unit will display the CD Text information.

Disc Title Memory: Titles of up to 10 characters each can be entered into memory for up to 48 discs. When a compatible changer is connected, titles of up to 10 characters each can be entered into memory for up to 100 discs in the changer.

CD Insert Auto Turn-on: When the unit is off and a CD is inserted, the unit will automatically turn on and play the CD.

Tuner: This receiver is equipped with Pioneer's proprietary Supertuner III, which provides excellent AM and FM performance.

Subwoofer/Non-fading Preouts: In addition to the front preamp outputs, there is one set of preamp outputs that may be set for "subwoofer" or "non fading" output. When set to "non fading", the signal is full range and the output level is user selectable from -6 to +6. When set to "subwoofer", the outputs are non fading, and they may be set for normal or reverse phase, 50Hz or 125Hz low-pass output, and the level is user selectable from -6 to +6.

Optional Aux Input: When used with item 130CDRB10 (sold separately) or item 130CDRB20 (sold separately), this unit can accept input from an auxiliary source, such as a portable CD or MD player. When item 130CDRB10 is used, a CD changer cannot be connected to this unit. Item 130CDRB20 allows you to connect an optional Pioneer CD changer and an auxiliary source to this unit.

Dimmer Feature: This unit is equipped with a wire that Pioneer calls an illumination lead, however, it acts as a dimmer lead. When the illumination wire of this unit receives power and the dimmer feature has been turned on in the "Initial Setting" menu, the display will dim to a preset level. Note: When the power and constant wires are connected and the illumination wire is supplied with voltage (when you turn your lights on), the button illumination remains on even if the unit is turned off completely.

Cellular Mute: This feature mutes or attenuates the unit's audio output when a cellular call is received, then restores the level once the call is over. To use this feature, you must have a cellular phone with a muting output that can be connected to the muting input wire (yellow/black lead) of this unit.

Warning Tone: If the front panel is not detached from the head unit within 5 seconds of turning off the ignition, a warning tone will sound. This feature can be turned On or Off.

Changer Controls

Changer Controls: In addition to basic disc navigation features, this unit has the following changer controls: pause, direct disc access, disc intro scan, track intro scan, track repeat, disc repeat, all disc repeat, disc random, and all disc random.

ITS (Instant Track Selection) Programming: The ITS function can be used to program automatic playback of up to 99 tracks per disc for up to 100 discs. With changers sold before the CDX-P1250 and CDX-P650, up to 24 tracks can be stored in the playlist.

Disc Title Memory: Titles of up to 10 characters each can be entered into memory for up to 100 discs. 

Disc Title List: This feature allows you to display disc titles that you have entered. From the list, you can select a disc for playback.

CD Text Display: When used with a CD Text compatible Pioneer CD changer, this unit will display the titles of CD Text encoded discs that are played in the changer. When playing a CD Text disc on a CD Text compatible changer, you cannot switch to the Disc Title Input mode. CD Text disc titles, artist names and track titles longer than 10 characters may be scrolled to reveal the entire string of text.

CD Sound Quality Adjustment: Using the "COMP" (compression) and "DBE" (dynamic bass emphasis) functions, you can adjust the playback quality of the changer. Each function may be set to one of two levels or off. The "COMP" function compresses the audio signal to eliminate distortions caused by the imbalances between the loudest and softest sounds when played at high volumes. The "DBE" function boosts bass frequencies to give your music a more full sound. Note: For these functions to work, they must be supported by the Pioneer CD changer.

Note

Display Illumination/Clock Display: When the Time Display has been turned on, pressing and holding the source button turns off audio output, but the clock display remains on. When the Time Display has not been turned on, pressing and holding the source button turns the unit off completely. This unit's clock is "keyed" only when the Time Display has been turned on. When the Time Display has not been turned on, the unit is off and power is supplied to the power and constant wires, nothing illuminates. Note: When the power and constant wires are connected and the illumination wire is supplied with voltage (when you turn your lights on), the button illumination remains on even if the unit is turned off completely.
