Sharp styling, with features to match
The elegant design of Pioneer's DEH-P9400BH CD receiver gives you quick and easy access to a wealth of features. You'll find Bluetooth® for hands-free calling and audio streaming, an HD Radio™ tuner for the best in radio sound, and dual USB inputs for your music, too. Add compatibility with Pandora® Internet radio through your iPhone® and a variable-color display that you can tailor to match your lighting, and you've got one impressive package.
Bluetooth for safety and convenience
Once you pair up your phone, the receiver will mute the music when a call comes in, displaying 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. Plus, you can stream the music on your phone to this 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 you save song info when your iPod's connected, so you can purchase the tracks you like later.
Pandora® Internet radio
If you've got an iPhone, you know the options available for streaming music. The DEH-P9400BH features Pioneer's App Mode, which offers limited control of many popular streaming music services. With your iPhone® connected, you'll have excellent control Pandora® Internet radio stations, including station selection and "thumbs up" and "thumbs down" ratings from the face of the receiver.
Play your music and streaming sources
The DEH-P9400BH sports two USB inputs on cords connected to the rear panel, so you won't have to put up with cables draped down the front of your dash. And you'll have real versatility too — plug your iPod into one and use the other for a USB storage device. There's almost no limit to the amount of music you can have on tap. And this Pioneer's 1-amp USB port will charge your devices fast, so you'll be ready to go when you get out of the car.
Pioneer for great sound
The DEH-P9400BH's built-in amp delivers plenty of power for strong sound. You'll also find an impressive collection of soundshaping controls, including a 5-band equalizer that lets you adjust the sound to your car's interior. Pioneer's Advanced Sound Retriever reverses the compression process to give you more high-frequency sparkle and musical detail from your digital audio files. And when you connect digital music sources like your iPod® to one of the USB inputs, you'll bypass the player's internal digital-to-analog converter and use the higher-quality DAC in the receiver. You songs will sound clearer and more realistic.
Choose colors to match your car and your taste
The fold-down face of the receiver offers plenty of room for displaying song info, and the bright dot-matrix display reads easily in a variety of lighting conditions. You can adjust the display and control colors of this receiver separately, so there are thousands of possible combinations on tap.
