HD Radio™ = the best sound in radio
If cruising down the road with radio on is your idea of fun, Pioneer's DEH-X8600BH CD receiver will get you tuned into HD Radio stations that offer the best sound you'll hear coming over the airwaves — FM that rivals CDs, and AM that's clear and static-free. HD Radio is free, and thousands of stations are broadcasting in HD Radio so you'll likely find participating stations in your area.
This versatile CD receiver also offers the convenience and safety of built-in Bluetooth connectivity. Answer incoming phone calls with the push of a button, and then talk as if your caller is sitting next to you. And forget all the hassles with plugging in your music player when you get in the car —you can stream music wirelessly from your device to this Pioneer, and even control many functions on your player, like "track up" or "track down" right from the receiver.
Siri Eyes Free for hands-free control
Got an iPhone® with Siri? The DEH-X8600BH supports Siri Eyes Free, which means you can ask Siri to make calls, select and play music, compose and hear text messages, read notifications, even use maps and get directions — all commanded by your voice through the receiver. This convenient feature can make your drive safer and more productive.
Take charge of your tunes
The rear USB input allows you to connect your and control iPod® or iPhone, so you can play your stored music files, plus enjoy control over your favorite Pandora® stations from the receiver. You can also use the USB input to tap into the music stored on many Android™ devices, while the front aux input handles just about any other audio source. If you're into your CD collection, you'll enjoy excellent sound from your store-bought and home-burned discs. This Pioneer also features Media App Control, so you can play and control music from music apps like iHeartRadio®, Aupeo™, and others when used with an iPhone (via USB connection) or Android (via Bluetooth) devices
The LCD display on the DEH-X860BH is sharp and detailed.
Pioneer's Full Dot 3-line display adds a big dose of "wow" to this stereo, with a variety of animated backgrounds and sharp, detailed presentations of song and system info. For an extra kick, turn on Pioneer's MIXTRAX feature when you're listening to the music stored on your iPhone or Android™. This cool feature adds a light show to your favorite playlists, as the receiver'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. Even when you're not using MIXTRAX, you'll enjoy the color combinations you can create with the separate display and button illumination options.
Find your perfect soundscape
Pioneer's potent MOSFET amplifier delivers plenty of power, while the 5-band EQ lets you tweak the sound as much as you want. The three pairs of 4-volt preamp outputs let you build a rocking system with external amps and subwoofers.
