Welcome to the digital age

If you're done with discs and ready for an all-digital entertainment experience, Pioneer's MVH-X560BT digital media receiver (there's no CD player) lets you enjoy music from your iPhone® or iPod®, select Android™ phones, or a USB thumb drive when you're on the road. You'll also get Bluetooth® hands-free calling, Pandora® control with iPhone or Android, and App Control. The big, multi-line display makes it easy to see the artist and song info, along with your system settings. You can select separate colors for the display and the control keys, for over 200,000 possible combinations.

Who needs CDs, anyway?

You can plug your iPod and iPhone into this receiver's USB port and make music selections through the receiver. As a bonus, the receiver will also charge your device while you're playing your tunes. If you own an iPhone 4S or iPhone 5, you can take advantage of Siri® Eyes Free functionality with a touch of a button, accessing a variety of functions with your voice commands.

Android users can control their music via Bluetooth or plug into the front panel USB port and play music while getting a charge. You can also plug in a thumb drive and enjoy MP3, WMA, and WAV files, or use the aux input to connect an MP3 player or portable satellite radio tuner.

Pioneer MVH-X560BT Digital Media Receiver

Pioneer's MVH-X560BT receiver features a multi-line display with over 200,000 color options.

Built-in Bluetooth™

The MVH-X560BT features built-in Bluetooth, so you can enjoy hands-free calling and wireless music streaming while you drive. You'll speak into the included external microphone and hear the other end of the conversation through your vehicle's speakers. With “Guest Mode,” you can add or replace a mobile device with ease -- a great feature for a family car with multiple drivers, or one driver with multiple devices.  

Compact size, big-time performance

With no CD player to worry about, Pioneer's designers were able to fit lots of features into a chassis that's 40% shallower than their CD receivers. The powerful MOSFET amplifier gives you outstanding sound, while Advanced Sound Retriever (ASR) technology brings back the musical detail lost when you compress music. A 5-band graphic equalizer lets you adjust the sound to suit your tastes, and you'll appreciate the three sets of preamp outputs when you add amps to your system.

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.

iPod/smartphone note: If you're going to use your iPod or smartphone with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for compatibility information.

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.

    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.

    Installed first one in my wife's Mini and she loved it. The automatic Bluetooth audio is a great feature. The sound quality on phone calls is excellent. She liked it so much I installed one in our Honda Insight.

    Pros: Ease of use. Sound quality. Clean looks.

    Cons: none

    Perfect Factory Replacement, Easy Install, Great for iPhone Users

    Replaced the factory receiver in my 2006 Jeep Liberty with this unit. After much research, decided that the Pioneer MVH-X560BT provided all the features I was looking for and was at a very affordable price. The sole feature I was looking for was bluetooth, as I depend solely on my iPhone for media, and haven't listened to the radio or cds in over a year. So although this unit does not handle cds, that is a feature that I did not utilize anyways, even though my stock receiver had a 6 disc changer. A media receiver was the logical choice. Bluetooth works great and is easy to configure in a matter of seconds. Great for streaming Spotify, podcasts, Apple Music, etc. The MixTrax feature is also very cool, though only works with USB for me after the roll-out of Apple Music. Might be a DRM issue or something but was not able to get MixTrax to work with media from my iPhone. However I loaded a few playlists on a USB Memory Key and it works great. I get bored with songs easily and often change songs before they finish playing, so MixTrax suits my tastes playing clips of my favorite songs at 1 minutes each. The illumination is pretty good, especially at night, however I find it is difficult to read during the day, and have opted to use a custom green color that is easy for me to read during the day, then switch to read or orange at night. But whatever your color choices are, it is easy enough to change in a few seconds. Great receiver at a great price.

    Pros: Priced very affordable. Heavy on features. Easy to use and easy to install. Crutchfield provided all the steps and materials needed for the install. The Crutchfield MasterSheet is very easy to read and follow. I have never installed any audio equipment before in a vehicle, and now feel like a pro.

    Cons: Screen is difficult to read in bright sunlight.

    Good product.

    Radio works well. Not getting very good antenna reception. Installed 2 of them and getting the same issue on both.

    Pros: Good features

    Cons: Wish there was an option for 5 volt outputs. Poor antenna reception

    Alphabetical Listing

    Written By Dweezil22, Rhode Island on Sunday, July 12, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    The only real problem I have with this unit is when I add a new folder or new track from my PC to the USB drive. Instead of an alphabetical listing. the folders and tracks appear as the last added. The same drive shows folders and tracks in alphabetical in other head units.

    Pros: Good size display, very customizable, good sound.

    Cons: The user manual leaves much to be desired.

    Bought this primarily for the rear USB and 3.5mm AUX inputs, allowing me to route the cables through my dash for less clutter. Works great with my IPhone 6.

    Pros: Easy Install Works with IPhone 6 Rear AUX inputs

    Fantastic

    Great update & upgrade for the factory radio that was no longer keeping time & on occasion was not working at all. Love that we can change the background light colors. Has all of the features we were looking for: Bluetooth, mp3 hook-ups, CD player & of course a functional radio.

    Pros: Easy of install, features

    Cons: Haven't found any yet.

    Great Product

    I've always been a Pioneer stereo guy, and this unit is awesome! I purchased this with a Crutchfield harness and a PAC steering wheel retention kit for my 2000 Buick Regal. What a value! My sound clarity and punch has improved dramatically! I bought this unit in particular because I wanted a rear AUX Jack to use with my XM Onyx stereo. I was able to run. All the wires behind the dash and it looks super clean. I also love the Bluetooth connectivity. I use Spotify a lot with my Android phone and as long as the app is open in the background the music will start up when I get in my car and it will pause when I turn off the car, it's just like having a CD player! Plus, I can change tracks through Spotify with my factory steering wheel control! The stereo also displays the song title and album info. I was not expecting that at all, and was pleasantly surprised. The hands free kit is also working great. My friends tell me the car mic sounds better than my phone. I can also have my music cranked and not only does the phone ring through my stereo, the stereo itself has an illumination setting that flashes through colors to get my attention when a call is coming in. Another nice little perk is that you can set the colors of the main screen and buttons different from the volume know and controls on the left. For example, my setup currently has the volume knob. Slowly scrolling scrolling through Colors while the screen stays on Orange. Nice touch!

    Pros: Great value (unit plus accessory kit for under $200!) Great sound! Shallow chassis makes for easy installation! Bluetooth/display/track change functionality works great with Spotify! Looks great!

    Cons: Stereo front beauty ring "bezel" does not fit with my dash, had to remove it. It's about 1mm wide on each side and there is no play in the factory dash. I'm pretty sure shaving the sides of the factory dash with a dremel would work and look good,but I'd certainly have a pro do it. As is, I removed the beauty ring and used a black paint marker to fill in the white stripe along the top and bottom of the pioneer unit. Looks pro!

    In terms of value, this unit is packed with features for the price. My goals when looking for a new stereo were a rear USB, Bluetooth (with control for Pandora) and steering wheel control ready. This unit fit the bill and then some. Since there is no CD drive, the unit is smaller and the screen is larger, however the screen is the only thing I can complain about. Even though it is larger, it only has a 1 line display. Also, as others have stated, there is no dimmer wire, only a button to switche between dimmed and bright, which is somewhat of a annoyance when you have to constantly switch between them. When the screen is dim, you can't see it in the glare from the sun, when it's bright, it's way too bright for nighttime driving. Other than that, I have no issues with this unit. It's easy to use and if you've ever had an aftermarket unit before, you probably won't even need to read the manual to figure out how to use it.

    Pros: Larger than average screen. Ton of features for a low price.

    Cons: No vehicle dimmer control.
