This digital media receiver will not play CDs. If you want to play CDs in your vehicle, we offer a wide selection of CD receivers.

If you're tapping into online music and video content through your iPhone®, why give that up when you're behind the wheel? Pioneer's MVH-P7300 digital media receiver makes staying connected easier than ever with multiple playback options, Pandora compatibility, and intuitive iPod® controls. And its 3" color display combines with an extremely simple control panel to create a receiver that's a real knockout.

If you're a fan of Pandora Internet Radio, you can plug your iPhone into the MVH-P7300's USB input for complete command of your Pandora stations from the receiver, with song/artist info and album art displayed on the receiver's screen.

Video anyone?
Use an optional CD-iU50V iPod A/V cable to tap into video from your iPod or iPhone when you're parked, while Pioneer's App Mode even lets you watch Internet video content from your iPhone. You can also check out videos and JPEGs stored on SD memory cards and USB devices.

More options
You can add Pioneer's HD Radio™ tuner or satellite radio tuner to expand your radio options. The handy front-panel USB and auxiliary inputs will accommodate your other audio devices.

Adjust your sonic landscape
Pioneer's MOSFET amp does an impressive job of powering your speakers, while the 8-band graphic equalizer lets you tweak the sound to your taste. Got a sub?

Want to keep your car's steering wheel audio controls?
In most vehicles, you can use an adapter to connect your vehicle's steering wheel controls to this Pioneer stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and the Pioneer, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. Check the "Accessories" tab for compatible adapters.

    Audio Section

    24 Bit D/A Converter: The Pioneer MVH-P7300 utilizes a 24-bit digital to analog converter for superior sound quality.

    MOSFET Amplifier: The MVH-P7300 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.

    CEA2006 Compliant: The power specifications for the MVH-P7300 are 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 MVH-P7300 are as follows:

    • CEA2006 Specs: 14 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms, 20Hz-20kHz, 1% THD-N)
    • 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)

    7-Way Rotary Commander: The Pioneer MVH-P7300 features a 7-Way Rotary Commander for easy control. You can scroll through your music and audio settings with greater ease using the 7-way rotary commander.

    Auto EQ (optional): Auto EQ automatically tailors acoustics by fine-tuning frequency bandwidths, plus front/rear speaker digital parametric equalization. The auto-equalizer automatically measures your car's interior acoustic characteristics, and then creates an auto-equalizer curve base on that information. The result is smooth sound full of subtle nuance and clarity. The Pioneer CD-MC20 Auto-EQ microphone (130CDMC20, sold separately) is required to use this function. The Pioneer CD-MC20 Auto-EQ microphone plugs into your compatible Pioneer media-center receiver's front-panel 3.5mm input. The Auto-EQ microphone should be placed in the center of your vehicle's driver seat headrest facing forward for EQ measurement.

    Sound Retriever: The Sound Retriever automatically enhances compressed audio and restores the original richness of the recording. When Sound Retriever is on, the high frequency range is compensated to match the frequency response curve to the original sound. There are two available levels of the Sound Retriever effect.

    Sonic Center Control: Sound that is more suited for the listening position can easily be created with this function.

    EEQ (Easy EQ): There are seven stored equalizer curves which you can easily recall at any time. You can choose from - Powerful, Natural, Vocal, Super Bass, Flat, Custom 1, or Custom 2.

    8-Band Graphic EQ: The Custom 1 and Custom 2 EQ modes allow you to manually adjust the level (+/- 12dB) of each band of the headunit's 8-band graphic equalizer (40Hz, 80Hz, 200Hz, 400Hz, 1kHz, 2.5kHz, 8kHz, and10kHz).

    Loudness: The Loudness feature compensates for deficiencies in the low and high sound ranges at low volume. You can set the Loudness feature to Low, Mid, High, or Off.

    Bass Boost: The Bass Boost function raises the level of sounds lower than 100Hz. You can select a desired level of bass boost between 0 and 6 (Gain: 0dB to +12dB).

    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.

    Three Pair of 4.0-Volt Preamp Outputs: The Pioneer MVH-P7300 features three pair of 4.0-volt preamp outputs (Front/Rear/Subwoofer). The unit's front and rear preamp output can be faded (front/rear), while the subwoofer preamp output is non-fading.

    Crossovers: The MVH-P7300 employs high pass and low pass crossovers to tailor the headunit to your connected speakers.

    • High Pass: The headunit's 12dB/octave high pass filter only allows frequencies higher than those in the selected range (50, 63, 80, 100, 125Hz) to your front and rear speakers through the unit's speaker-level or line-level outputs.
    • Low Pass: The subwoofer preamp output features an18dB/octave low pass filter so only frequencies lower than those in the selected range (50, 63, 80, 100, 125Hz) are output to your connected subwoofer. 

    Subwoofer Controls: The Pioneer MVH-P7300 lets you adjust the subwoofer preamp output's phase (normal/reverse) and volume (+6 to -24).

    Switchable Rear Channel/Subwoofer Speaker Output: The rear speaker outputs can be set to provide full range output with full fading capability, or they can be set to provide non-fading subwoofer (low-pass) output. When the rear speaker outputs are set to subwoofer mode, the rear preamp outputs also switch from full range to subwoofer outputs. When set for subwoofer operation, you can connect the rear speaker leads directly to two small 4-ohm passive subwoofers or a dual voice coil sub with 4-ohm voice coils. If you prefer to use a single 2-ohm subwoofer, you can connect the woofer to one set of speaker leads, leaving the other set of rear leads disconnected. The maximum output provided when a 2-ohm load is connected to one set of leads is 70 watts.

    Tuner Functions

    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. Digital processing reduces distortion, and improves Signal-to-Noise Ratio and stereo separation. Advanced analog technology improves signal processing sensitivity.

    RDS: The Radio Data System (RDS) feature displays radio broadcast information such as artist, title, and album when listening to compatible AM/FM stations.

    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 presets.

    Note: This headunit is not equipped with front-panel preset buttons. Instead, you have to access the unit's menu to select your presets.

    Local Tuning: Local seek tuning lets you tune in only those radio stations with sufficiently strong signals for good reception. There are 4 levels 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.

    HD Radio Ready: This unit is compatible with the optional Pioneer GEX-P20HD HD Radio tuner (130GEXP20H, sold separately) allowing you to tune available HD Radio stations. HD Radio features high quality audio, FM multi-casting, and data services. The add-on HD Radio tuner also supports iTunes Tagging which allows you to save song information (tag) from an HD Radio broadcasting station to your connected iPod or iPhone. The saved songs will show up in a playlist called "Tagged" in iTunes the next time you sync your iPod. Then you can directly buy the songs you want from the iTunes Music Store.

    Note: Apple iPod/iPhone software updates may change functionality results. If you download a newer software version, you may need to reset the headunit and your iPod/iPhone to regain functionality. If this doesn't work, you may need to revert to the older software version or wait until a newer software update is available.

    AV Auxiliary Input: The Pioneer MVH-P7300 has an AV 3.5mm mini-jack auxiliary input on the front-panel panel for connecting a portable audio/video device.

    Remote Control

    Wireless Remote Control: The MVH-P7300 comes with an IR wireless remote control (CXE3669). The remote allows you to control the volume, switch between sources, pause your music, change the display, and adjust the audio. The mute button allows you to quickly lower the volume by about 90% (function that cannot be performed from the front panel).

    Steering Wheel Remote Compatibility: The head unit features an OEM steering wheel remote control input on the rear of the unit to allow you to keep your vehicle's radio steering wheel remote controls when used with the optional PAC SWI-RC Steering Wheel Control Interface Adapter (541SWIRC, sold separately); or the optional Metra ASWC Steering Wheel Control Interface Adapter (120ASWC, sold separately).

    Note: Please consult the Crutchfield Car Selector to see if your vehicle is compatible.

    I bought this because of the SD card storage. Put a 32GB card in and it took 10+ minutes to read every time...not exactly user friendly. Deleted about a third of the music and it started reading in about 3 minutes, not good but at least better. Then it stopped producing sound from any source. Both Crutchfield and Pioneer called it a bad unit. It had just been discontinued, so I couldn't get the same one again. Crutchfield swapped it for a Sony DSX-S310BTX and that one is so much better. Holds the iPod internally and had BT. I very pleased with the service from Crutchfield.

    Pros: none

    Cons: listed

    I gave the receiver 3 stars only because I ordered it thinking that the face fully detached, The face is not fully detachable. Basically, all that comes off is the volume knob: the screen itself does not detach.Therefore, I returned it without installing it, so I cannot speak on the functionality.

    Pros: Don't know. Never Installed it.

    Cons: The face is not fully detachable.

    Installed in my Jeep as a replacement for my factory seven speaker cd reciever. Even with the stock speakers I have noticed an improvement in sound clarity. The ability to connect my Iphone or SD card let's me listen to my music without having to carry CD's. Installation was easy thanks to the excellent instruction provided by Crutchfield and Pioneer.

    Pros: Great sound, menu display, ability to tune to my vehicle, easy to use remote.

    Cons: Took a little time to learn the menu's but, I eventually caught on after a week.

    Easy install. I like the uncluttered look, although I really wish these aftermarket manufacturers would drop the high gloss look. The menu is easy to navigate with main control. It connected quickly with my iPhone 4S via the USB. Controls Pandora perfectly.

    Pros: Uncluttered look. Easy menus and interface.

    Cons: Gloss finish. I would prefer satin or flat black.

    Hello , I have always had Pioneer units in my vehicles , over the last few years pioneer stopped making good tuning units for people like me who have everything on an amp.A few months back i decided to upgrade some components and when i do this i always upgrade my HU , but as i said pioneer had nothing to offer in a cd player with usb that was good for fine tuning , I thought to myself i haven't used a cd in years ,so i found this unit and i have to tell you it was perfect for my application, As soon as i fired it up it sounded way better that the kenwood excelon 996 set my eq , sound retriever settings and it was perfect and good looking and i have some serious gear , REaudio XXX 2ohm components 150 watts rms per channel , RE audio 12 inch SXXX 900 watt rms sub and Hifonics amps , This is by far the best headunit i have ever had . so for all you bass heads or just digital music lovers this is it. The unit does come stripped of gadgets that can be purchased separately , but again this is exactly what i wanted and it looks cool too

    Pros: great tuning unit

    Cons: none

    Remote Worthless

    Unfortunately I've had this deck now for six months and beside it being a decent unit you cannot use the remote for any "normal" commands. On every car audio deck that I've purchased in the past you could select your preset radio stations and adjust your treble and bass through the remote, NOT ON THE P7300. Don't waste your time with this unit if you're a heavy remote user you won't be happy. Other then that it sounds and looks nice but I'm too frustrated to get past that the remote is basically something to look at.

    Pros: Looks nice and sounds good.

    Cons: Remote is absolutely worthless.

    Its a really nice stereo for the price and with most receivers going to the double din style it one of the best looking ones on the market. I have it hooked up to and alpine 70 x 4 amp with alpine type s speakers and a Rockford fosgate 500 bd amp pushing a alpine type x. As far change songs on an iPod it was a little different at first, but once u get used to it, it's easy to use

    Pros: Great value great sound and good looking

    Cons: Had to spend 50 bucks on the iPod cable

    This is a really nice radio with a great display.

    I've had this unit for about a week now. I feel in love with it's simplistic appearance. My dash is very simple, and I felt like the majority of the radios on the market do not fit that description. My biggest gripe with this unit is listening to the radio. The directional knob is not very intuitive. You'd assume that pushing up or down would change the presets - not so. You have to enter the preset menu and twist the knob to change stations, then press in to select it. That means if you are in ANY menus, you have to use the remote to adjust the volume. On the topic of the remote - It has a 5 way directional pad on it. Once again, logic would imply that pressing up or down would change the presets. Nope. It opens the preset menu, which you then have to use the directional knob on the unit itself to select which station you want to listen to. Its infuriating. With that said, when listening to music from an SD card or a USB device, those nuisances disappear. Up/down changes folder and left/right changes the song. Sound quality is very crisp.. I listen to pretty much any music - Rock, Classic Rock, R&B, Hip Hop, Reggae, Dubstep, it all sounds great. Currently my setup consists of the stock Bose speakers and a JL 13TW5 in a custom enclosure powered by an Alpine PDX1.600.

    If Pioneer had designed the remote/directional knob with ease of use in mind, this unit would be perfect.

    Pros: Relatively inexpensive, simplistic design, USB port, SD card slot, RDS, Satellite radio ready, awesome display

    Cons: Changing radio stations near impossible while driving, lack luster remote, who designed these menus?, no USB port on the rear

    Written By JC, Saint Louis, Mo on Monday, October 10, 2011

    I've had this unit for about 6 months now, and its just "OK". Its so hard to operate while driving. The center knob is hard to push in to select options. It always mistakes it as if your using the directional functions. The remote control is useless, unless your just looking to change the volume or switch songs. You cant control your subs, change between artist, playlist, or songs. It does have nice power and it makes factory speakers sound decent. I'm already looking for a new unit though.

    Great sound

    I bought this reciever because I needed a Aux in, and I dont use cd's anymore, and am impressed with the clarity and power of this unit. Had a speed bump with the install because the factory integration unit (for GM) failed after first power on, and made me think the deck was messed up. Also, had to modify (cut!) my dash to install deck (Said it "Fits" when I ordered, 2001 impala) but other than that, its been great!

    Written By HIker951, Jackson, WY on Friday, April 01, 2011

    I just this receiver 2 days ago, couldn't wait to get it installed. Got the wireing harness all set, or at least I thought. Had to call Crutchfield support, the agent was awesome with helping me out, found out that there were a few more wires that I thought I didn't need it but a few more crimps and we were back in buisness. Sirius through the SIR-PNR2 is great. But the overall 3 stars is for operation, this unit is kinda clunky when it comes to menus, not too well thought out. For example when playing from the iPod I have to go through 3-4 menus just to access my songs kinda weird, and have yet to find the pass through control to let me control everything in the iPod like my old Pioneer Headunit let me. I'm going to give it a few more days, but I think over all I am going to return the unit.

    Great Receiver

    Written By Robert, Albuquerque, NM on Sunday, March 13, 2011

    This is an excellent receiver, I love the Pandora controls. This works flawless with my iPhone 4 and you can watch videos on the screen and even watch Netflix and Youtube. If I had to give it a flaw then I would say that there's no video output. I would have liked to of seen this feature as I was thinking about putting video screens on my headrests. Even with this one flaw I still have to give this receiver 5 stars. It just does everything so well and looks good doing it too.
