Ramp up the party in your car
Pioneer's DEH-X3500UI is the first CD receiver in their lineup with MIXTRAX technology. Turn on MIXTRAX, and you'll get a DJ-inspired audio/video experience with the music stored on your iPod®, iPhone®, or other USB device. You'll enjoy seamless musical transitions with cool effects, as the receiver's illumination pulses with the beat of your tunes.
Pioneer increased the size of their dot-matrix display, so you can see all system information with a quick glance. You can also adjust the display and control colors of this receiver separately, with thousands of possible combinations on tap.
Play your music and streaming sources, too
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 with the highest fidelity possible. You'll also be able to take charge of your Pandora® Internet radio stations from the receiver, including the ability to give a "thumbs up" or "thumbs down." Of course, the DEH-X3500UI plays all your CDs, including those loaded with MP3 and WMA files.
Pioneer means great sound
The built-in amp at the heart of this receiver delivers plenty of power for strong sound. You'll also find an impressive collection of soundshaping controls. The 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. You'll also find the high- and low-pass filters handy if you're building a system with amps and subs.
Want to keep your steering wheel controls?
In most vehicles you can use an adapter (not included) 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.
Note: If you're going to use your iPod with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for specific iPod model compatibility with this receiver.
