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.

    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

    Nice replacement for my factory radio

    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.

    Purchase and delivery fast and easy and price very competitive. Order included all required adapters and even an installation guide specific for my 17 year old German car. Unit was easy to install and set up. Bluetooth connected effortlessly and the features are easy to navigate. Very intuitive to program. Even can access the address book on my android phone. Hardly a need to refer to the instructions that it came with. The external mic allowed better placement to shield wind noise so sound quality is good even with the convertible with top down. Comes with a remote control but would rather have a smaller one with limited functions to attach to the steering wheel.

    Pros: Easy installation. Compact size.customizable colors. External microphone. Aux inputs are removed from menu if nothing is connected simplifying navigation.

    Cons: No USB on front. Had to fish a cable from rear to make it accessible. Limited number of colors. Haven't figured out how to make the display a custom color other than the basic selection of colors. Display is difficult to see in the bright sun regardless of color or brightness level selected.

    Very nice unit

    Replaced a 12-yr old unit in an old Camaro to take advantage of modern Bluetooth technology and ipod control from the head unit. Fairly easy to figure out most functions without using the manual. Impressed by nearly infinite customizability on many functions. Streams music from iphone 6 without problems; shows track/artist info etc. But no ability to browse and select iphone music from head unit. Can move to next or previous song, pause, etc. Full ipod functionality from head unit including browse and select. Great sound. Display a bit bright at night, no automatic dimmer but can be quickly dimmed using a button. If in the menu setting, pressing the band button immediately escapes the menu to the main display. Phone bluetooth functions work well and in an intuitive manner. A very nice unit that delivers on its promises with no fuss.

    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.wo
