Packed with features
Check out the features you'll find on Pioneer's DEH-P8400BH CD receiver — Bluetooth® for hands-free calling and audio streaming, an HD Radio™ tuner for the best in radio sound, and Pioneer's MIXTRAX for DJ-style audio and visual effects. When you add in iPod® controls and a great-looking variable-color display, you're looking at a receiver that'll bring safety, convenience, and superb sound to your car.
Bluetooth for safety and convenience
Pioneer's DEH-P8400BH mutes the music when a call comes in and displays the incoming number or contact name. Just press a button and talk — no fumbling for your phone. The receiver stores your phone book if you like, so outgoing calls are easy too. If you've got music on your phone, use audio streaming to send it to the receiver, with no wires to get tangled up.
HD Radio for unparalleled radio sound
HD Radio's sonic advantages are impressive — FM broadcasts that are near-CD quality, with AM that's as good as what you're used to on FM. And if your local HD Radio station employs multicasting, this Pioneer allows you to tune into multiple channels on the same frequency, so you'll have more entertainment choices. Plus, the iTunes® tagging feature lets your save song info when your iPod's connected, so you can purchase the tracks you like later.
Pioneer for great sound
At the heart of this receiver, the built-in amp delivers plenty of power for strong sound. You'll also find an impressive collection of sound-shaping controls. Pioneer's Easy EQ 5-band equalizer lets you adjust the sound to your car's interior, while the Advanced Sound Retriever reverses the compression process to give you more high-frequency sparkle and musical detail from your digital audio files.
Play your music and streaming sources
The DEH-P8400BH plays all your CDs, including those with MP3 and WMA files burned onto them. Plug your iPod into the USB input, and you can use the Pioneer's controls to run the show. Once connected, the receiver bypasses your iPod's built-in digital-to-analog converter, using its own high-quality DAC to deliver your music files with the highest fidelity possible. When you plug your iPhone® into the USB port, you'll be able to take charge of your Pandora® Internet radio stations from the receiver. And this Pioneer's 1-amp USB port will charge your devices in record time.
Choose colors to match your car and your taste
The bright dot-matrix display displays all system information clearly, and you can adjust the display and control colors of this receiver separately, with thousands of possible combinations on tap. The DEH-P8400BH will blend right in, whatever the color of your car's control surfaces and dials.
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.
Bluetooth note: Use of this receiver's Bluetooth features will depend upon your phone's Bluetooth capabilities. Learn more in our article explaining Bluetooth profiles.
iPhone® 5 Note: You'll need to update this Pioneer receiver to enable Bluetooth control and metadata display for the iPhone 5 or other Apple iOS6 devices. This update requires a laptop with Bluetooth running Windows 7.
