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.

    Perfect upgrade over stock radio.

    Crutchfield shipping was quick and everything needed for a flawless install was in the box ready to go. I had no idea replacing the stock stereo would make such a big difference in sound quality. There are tons of settings to get your sound just the way you like it. I don't miss CD's at all with a flash drive connected to the USB cable. The lever behind the volume knob is awesome for changing tracks without looking or fumbling for a tiny button. My favorite feature has to be siri eyes free. The microphone sounds so much better than the little head sets people wear. I would say it's even better than the iphone 5 mic because siri doesn't misunderstand me in the car. I only wish the receiver alerted to text messages the same way it does an incoming call.

    Pros: 1. Packed with features 2. Big display 3. Included microphone works loud and clear (clipped behind rear view mirror). 4. Shallow depth made install easier with no dash cutting needed. 5. Excellent sound quality from USB and radio. 6. Always connects to the phone everytime.

    Cons: I agree with the display being hard to read in daylight and then at night it's super bright. It looks like the top 1/3 of the display is tinted darker than the rest. Menu isn't simple because of my pro #1 but you get used to it. There is quite a delay from the time I press the button on the unit to the time siri responds.

    Great Performance for the $$$$

    We replaced a factory radio in a Hyundai Sonata with this unit. With the USB or the Bluetooth input the song, artist, and gender are displayed immediately. In the radio mode the station is identified. We also found the sound much more filling than the factory radio, and have the Loudness contour set to "Low". We never used a CD in the old radio and had tired of the annual SiriusXM charges, so we can't miss what we didn't use. This unit is well worth the money.

    Pros: Large display Ease of operation

    Cons: Initial setup instructions in the manual are very vague.

    Great and affordable!

    I am blown away by how well the head unit works! And the price! Free shipping as well. Can't beat Crutchfield, from the time I ordered it to the time it was in the car it was 28 hours! That's service! I will be getting a double din pioneer after seeing how perfect this one is.

    Pros: Price, quality, simple to use, simple to tune. Picks up phone instantly and everytime, looks super clean, lots of colors even the demo mode is cool

    Cons: Only gripe is that your phone can still control volume when using Bluetooth. So if your phone is trurned down then the stereo will not get loud.

    nice radio

    I needed a new radio for my Volvo s70 and this one fit perfectly with the installation kit at 1st I thought I got the wrong harness kit it had the actual connectors tucked away and covered in a foam sleeve since it has the 9 speaker system.once I saw that it was smooth sailing and it sounded amazing and was easy to use.woke up the factory speakers.staff was helpful and extremely polite shipping was fast also.

    Pros: Simple

    I installed this media player in our 2005 Toyota Sienna and I have been very impressed with the quality and features.

    Some of the most impressive features are: 1) External mic provides excellent sound quality on phone calls and makes accessing Siri very easy. 2) The install was very simple and easy (I really like the narrow depth of the unit because of the lack of CD player). 3) Excellent sound quality. 4) Very useful display with lots of space (again, due to the lack of CD player). 5) Phone call features are easy to access which is important because it reduces distractions while driving. 6) I really like the rear USB/aux inputs in the rear. I routed all cables into a small storage compartment were everything is out of sight at all times. No expensive devices (or messy cables leading thief's to expensive devices) hanging from the face of the radio.

    One of my only complaints that mirrors many other reviews is the brightness of the display. It is dim and a little hard to see during daylight even on full brightness and too bright even when dimmed during the night. The option to choose the color of the display can help but that often requires changing the color setting for day and night.

    Pros: Price Build quality iPhone integration Very clear external mic Large display area

    Cons: Menus are mildly difficult to navigate Brightness setting

    Customer service is the best!! I installed the first radio and went so easy. The USB port was easy to hide and I routed the mic for Bluetooth on the colum. The radio sounded ok with the matching speakers I got from Crutchfield. Then I tested the hands free calling only to find out the mic didn't work. So I pulled the radio and double checked that it was in the right port and it was. I called customer service and they greeted me by name and got me to tech support. Tech support sent me a new unit to try and it was here in three days. So I tryed the mic first and it still didn't work so I replaced the head unit and used the old mike. Now it works great. I just put the return label in the box and I'll give it to ups on Thursday. I'm very pleased with them and there level of service. THANK YOU!! P.S. You can use the USPS to do the same shipping job in the same time frame. Just saying.

    Pros: Easy to use. Nice color choices.

    Cons: Hard to see in the day time and will not get dark enough at night. No volume control for the hands free mic.

    This will be my last Pioneer receiver. But not for the reasons that probably jump to mind. I've been a loyal fan and consumer of Pioneer products for over 40 years. In all that time I have never been disappointed. I just replaced a 18 year old DEH-P430 CD/Receiver, because I thought the AM band had stopped working in my 22 year old GMC pick up (turns out it was the antenna cable converter, not the receiver!). I chose this model for two main reasons, sub-woofer support and Bluetooth. I am not disappointed. Not only does the iPhone work flawlessly via Bluetooth, but usage of USB, and the AUX connection, all work flawlessly and in complete harmony with one another. After replacing the antenna cable converter AM is working too! It'll probably be my last Pioneer receiver because it'll outlast me. And I have the old one as a spare.

    Pros: Bluetooth range is outstanding. I was expecting problems, based on previous bluetooth solutions I've tried to use, the range hasn't been enough, but this one works great from anywhere in the cab of the truck. Sound, the old Pioneer I replaced had great sound, this one is even better. Its good to see that Pioneer is continually improving in all areas, but especially sound quality.

    Cons: What with all the things it can do, its a bit complicated and I will admit that the user manual is the last resort. But yeah, its a bit of a learning curve to navigate. But I expected this, I don't think any other brands or models with this many features would be any simpler. I plugged in a USB thumb drive that was not formatted as fat32. It didn't read it, didn't blink, didn't do anything, tried another thumb drive, all is well. It would be better if it would have let me know.

    I wanted a head unit that controls my iPhone, and this unit didn't disappoint. The best part of this unit is the iPhone control. Bluetooth setup worked great, and allows wireless audio from all apps on my phone. Next/Previous using the steering wheel controls work not only with iTunes, but also Pandora and the SiriusXM app. Exactly as I wanted.

    What I was pleasantly surprised by was how quickly it pairs up with my phone. On previous units I've used, when I start the car, it would default to the radio, or to iTunes. One head unit I had would default to the same song at the start of my iTunes playlist every time.

One head unit I had would default to the same song at the start of my iTunes playlist every time. (I got very sick of that song.) This defaults to exactly where I left off when I shut off the car, which is amazing. I listen to Howard Stern on demand, using the SiriusXM app. This means when I shut off the car, it auto-pauses the show, and when I start it up again it begins playing right where I left off. Awesome.

    Pros: Great iPhone control. Fast, reliable pairing. Good sound.

    Cons: The Bluetooth microphone doesn't work very well. When I had my Hyundai, pressing the siri button would use the Bluetooth mic in the car to listen to your commands, and dictation. It worked amazingly well. On this unit, it uses the external mic as well, but doesn't work nearly as well. display seems a little dated. It's surprising to me how the displays on aftermarket receivers still look like they did 20 years ago. The display also doesn't have a means to auto-dim when the lights are on.

    I bought this unit because of the features it offered. Siri ,pandora,iPhone support, it pretty much has everything you need. I'm partial to pioneer units and they have always been great products over the years. This is no exception, everything works great. Easy to install and set up. Features are easy to use once you know how to use them. I used pandora while my iPhone 6 is plugged in and it gives track information on the screen. Navigating is easy though your stations. I used the random feature and it switches between pandora stations flawlessly. Siri control is easy with one button push. The phone functions work great and in a noisy car the phone was clear as day. The illumination color choices are endless. Pairing my iPhone was simple and a BT audio works quickly. I used waze navigation app while listening to pandora and it worked great, audio for navigation came through and the music was slightly muted then returns to normal volume. You can't go wrong with this unit! Highly recommend it.

    Pros: Easy set up, great features, worked with iPhone 6 and navigation app. Clear phone calls. Easy Siri control.

    Cons: So far have not experienced any.

    Great buy!

    I was really impressed with the what I got for the price. I haven't purchased a car stereo in a very long time, but I really expected a throw away unit and this is a great unit. Works great via Bluetooth with my iPhone and I still have AUX and USB for riders!

    Pros: Light, Great Features, Customizable

    Cons: You have to read the manual ;-)

    Purchased for a 2009 GMC Sierra Crew Cab with the BOSE Stereo. Called Crutchfield to assist with what AXXESS items were needed to keep Bluetooth from the Truck, steering wheel controls, etc. Installed it myself and after 1 call back to Crutchfield for assistance, all parts worked. Items to note though, Turning on Bluetooth for the Truck and the Receiver to my iPhone causes issues for the speaker when you are talking to someone. Simple fix though, I just don't connect the BT to the stereo, just to my truck. I am still trying to figure this out (have only had the unit for 48 hours). It even stops playing music when I get a call in. The unit itself is very small since it does not have a CD player, and was fairly easy to connect. Another item to note, I believe that the GMC Stereo unit provided high-pass filtering for the BOSE speakers, and with this stereo installed I now have distortion in my tweeters. I will remedy this with some inline filters at a later date, but just a very interesting item that I did not even consider.

    The unit functions fine. I recommend reading the directions to understand its full capabilities. I have had much higher end units before, but this one fits the bill for now. I wanted not so expensive with BT streaming and USB, and that is what I now have. Also, the USB cable is very long, so makes it easy to install pretty much anywhere in reach of the center console.

    Great little unit for the price! Hard to beat.

    Pros: Small, light, BT Streaming, USB, Multi Color

    Cons: Controls are not instantly adaptive, you will have to read the manual to understand how to select certain functions.

    Great Digital Player for the price!

    Overall this has been a great upgrade to my 1995 BMW 540i. The installation was rather easy and the wiring fairly straightforward(due to the BMW's external amp, instructions on owners forums were very helpful). The unit is quite sturdy and rather easy to use. Variable illumination is a great way to match the stock dash lighting, though I haven't found an exact match just yet. Hooks up to my iPhone 4s, iPod Touch 4g, and iPad(personal) and my Android phone(work) without a hitch via USB. Calls are for the most part very clear. I might be getting another one for the 1988 Toyota Celica GT-Four that's about to be added to my collection very soon.

    Pros: The price point is great and the aesthetics fit in with an older car where all the bells, whistles, and giant touchscreens are a flashing distraction. The sound quality is quite good and the interface is intuitive and easy to use. Supports hands-free dialing and Siri, after a fashion. Bluetooth works great. Build quality is very good.

    Cons: I wish the stereo had an headlight dimming function like most others. Sometimes, the lowest brightness settings are a little too bright at night. The glossy surface picks up reflections during the day and makes reading the display difficult. The volume button is too easily pushed in and I sometimes end up pushing it(taking you to the settings menu) on rougher roads instead of adjusting the volume(neither of my cars have steering wheel controls).

    This stereo is everything I asked for, it has many features and is easy to use aswell as convenient.. For example I've been ticketed 2 times for using my phone one time I used the hands free or speaker phone but the caller couldn't hear m, but with this stereo it comes with a microphone for hands free option thru Bluetooth that makes it so much easier...

    Pros: Easy installation, nice effects different color display...

    Installed in my 2004 Hyndai Santa Fe, was smooth with supplied kit. Compared to the after market radio that was in car (made me think the factory speakers was shot) when i bought, this one sounds 100 times better. It may say 14 watts per channel, but sounds much higher. It does work with my external USB hard drive (320 Gb) with 160 Gb of MP3 on it.

    My only gripe, the cell phone interface when placing calls is a little clumsy, not easy to do. Does not support voice dialing that I have found.

    Pros: Price size features sound versatility

    Cons: Limited bluetooth phone interface. Not "Dial Mom" not supported.
