When you want the most from radio

Your media choices are greater than ever these days. Pioneer's DEH-X7500HD receiver not only plays CDs, it also features a USB input for a storage device, iPod®, or phone, along with an auxiliary input for other audio devices. But what if radio's still #1 during your drive time?

The DEH-X7500HD features a built-in HD Radio™ tuner, so you won't need a subscription or any extra equipment to enjoy HD Radio broadcasts — you'll tune them in like regular AM and FM shows. But that's where the similarity ends. You'll immediately notice that FM broadcasts on HD Radio sound nearly as good as CDs, while AM shows offer much more high-fidelity, static-free reception. Many participating stations also offer extra channels with alternate programming, so you can enjoy more variety without surfing the dial.

MIXTRAX revs up the visuals

This versatile receiver also offers iPod® controls and Pandora® Internet radio control with your iPhone®, giving you a great mix of style, form, and function. And when you're listening to your music libraries, Pioneer's cool MIXTRAX feature adds a lightshow to your favorite playlists, as the DEH-7500HD's bright multi-colored display pulses in time with your music. And MIXTRAX fades in and out of each song just like a DJ would, adding special effects and keeping the musical energy high.

Killer display and colors

You're not stuck with one color scheme with this Pioneer. Both the knob and display colors are customizable, so you can match the look to your dash and your whims. The display is a show-stopper in itself, offering a variety of animated backgrounds and themes, presented in rich detail by Pioneer's Organic Electroluminescent technology.

The legacy of great Pioneer sound

The DEH-7500HD carries on Pioneer's tradition of superb sound quality with a powerful built-in amp that puts most stock radios to shame. Along with that extra power, you'll enjoy a 5-band equalizer to adjust your tone, Pioneer's Advanced Sound Retriever to perk up the sound quality of compressed music, and a suite of other sophisticated sound controls. If you're looking to build a bigger system, you can connect amps and subs to the three pairs of preamp outputs to add some serious impact.

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 or smartphone with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for specific model compatibility with this receiver.

    Great receiver

    It's a great receiver for the money since I bought at sale price. It takes some patience figuring out the buttons. Plenty of audio options. It's a little bright for me at night. But you can turn off the display. Personally I would not pay the full price for the receiver, but at the sale price, it's a great value.

    Pros: Custom equalizer, display colors, plenty of options, ability to turn off display at night

    Cons: Too bright at night (see pros)

    Great Support

    I replaced the factory radio with this one. Crutchfield had a great price on it and they included all the parts I needed to install it. I was hearing pop sound whenever I change source or channel and I was able to narrow down where the problem was by looking at knowledge base on Crutchfield website and confirmed by calling their customer service. They send me ground adapters that are needed to fix the problem. It was my first time installing/replacing car stereo and it was possible because of Crutchfield made it so easy. Keep up the good work, Crutchfield!

    Pros: Stereo itself is so so. But, Crutchfield support is really good.

    Cons: light is too bright. Makes pop sound when connected to amp without ground adapter.

    I bought this to replace my pioneer super tuner 3 35 watts x 4. It sound better, and looks better. With mixtrax it hooks up to my phone and I can play what ever song I want. It took me 30 minuets to wire the harness, 20 minuets to install the radio. This was the first aftermarket radio I put in and it won't be the last one, thanks to Crutchfield for giving everything to put it in so easily.

    Pros: Looks, Install time, Sound quality, and Price

    Cons: None
