HD Radio and more
Looking for total sonic satisfaction? The Pioneer DEH-P7200HD not only features a workhorse MOSFET amplifier and powerful sound-shaping tools, it also boasts a built-in HD Radio tuner for the very best in digital radio sound.
The HD Radio advantage
The DEH-P7200HD's built-in HD Radio tuner allows you to access stations with the improved sound quality of digital broadcasting. You'll enjoy FM with near CD-quality sound, and AM that sounds as good as regular FM. And if you have your iPod® connected, you can "tag" music to review and buy later at Apple's iTunes® store.
The DEH-P7200HD offers a 5-band equalizer for fine audio adjustments. Separate high- and low-pass filters let you tailor the frequencies you send to your speakers, for improved clarity in the highs and tighter thump in the lows. Pioneer's Advanced Sound Retriever circuitry peps up the sound of your music files by adding high-frequency information to replicate sonic information lost in the compression process. It's a great way to get the best sound out of your iPod.
Styled to impress
You'll take in information at a glance with the bright blue Organic Electroluminescent (OEL) display. With three lines of text display, you'll know all the details about system settings and the songs you're checking out. Full-motion 3D screen savers add some "wow" factor when your friends check out your system.
Want to add on?
Build a high-powered car audio system by connecting amps and subs to the three sets of high-voltage preamp outputs. You can connect a satellite radio to open up a world of music, sports, and news programming. You've got a handy front-panel USB and auxiliary input at your disposal, so you can plug thumb drives, iPods, and almost any other audio source into the mix. For the convenience of hands-free calling, add Pioneer's optional Bluetooth® module.
Want to keep your car's steering wheel audio controls?

MOSFET Amplifier: The DEH-P7200HD is equipped with a MOSFET amplifier. Compared to conventional power supplies, the MOSFET amplification circuit is smaller and more efficient, and it delivers increased power with less distortion and absolutely zero on/off switching noise. More power means louder and cleaner music at higher volumes because you're not pushing the limits of the amplification circuit.
CEA2006 Compliant: The power specifications for the DEH-P7200HD are compliant with the CEA2006 Mobile Amplifier Power Testing and Measurement standards from the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA). These standards were developed as a way to equitably compare power specs from model to model and between manufacturers. The power output specs for the DEH-P7200HD are as follows:
- CEA2006 Specs: 14 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms, 20Hz-20kHz, 1% THD-N)
- Continuous Power Output: 22 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms, 50Hz-15kHz, 5% THD)
- Maximum Power Output: 50 watts x 4 channels (or 50 watts x 2 channels at 4 ohms + 70 watts x 1 channel at 2 ohms for subwoofer)
7-Way Rotary Commander: The Pioneer DEH-P7200HD features a 7-Way Rotary Commander for easy control. You can scroll through your music and audio settings with greater ease using the 7-way rotary commander.
Sound Retriever: The Sound Retriever automatically enhances compressed audio and restores the original richness of the recording. When Sound Retriever is on, the high frequency range is compensated to match the frequency response curve to the original sound. There are two available levels of the Sound Retriever effect.
EEQ (Easy EQ): The DEH-P7200HD is equipped with a 5-band (100Hz, 315Hz, 1.25kHz, 3.15kHz, and 8kHz) EQ with 5 preset EQ settings: Powerful, Natural, Vocal, Super Bass, and Flat. There are also two Custom modes which allow you manually adjust the head unit's 5-band EQ from +/- 6dB.
Loudness: The Loudness feature compensates for deficiencies in the low and high sound ranges at low volume. You can set the Loudness feature to Low, Mid, High, or Off.
Bass Boost: The Bass Boost function raises the level of sounds lower than 100Hz. You can select a desired level of bass boost between 0 and 6 (Gain: +12dB to 0dB).
Source Level Adjustment (SLA): This function lets you adjust the volume level of each source to prevent radical changes in volume when switching between sources. Settings are based on the volume level of the FM tuner, which remains unchanged. Each source can be independently adjusted from -4dB to +4dB.
High Pass Filter: If you do not want low frequency sounds to play from the front or rear speaker outputs, you can turn on the 12dB/octave High Pass Filter. The HPF has a selectable cutoff frequency (50, 63, 80, 100, or 125 Hz). Only frequencies higher than those in the selected range are output through the speakers.
Three Pair of 4.0-Volt Preamp Outputs: The Pioneer DEH-P7200HD features three pair of 4.0-volt preamp outputs (Front/Rear/Subwoofer). The unit's front and rear preamp output can be faded (front/rear), while the subwoofer preamp output is non-fading. The subwoofer preamp output offers an independent low-pass filter, phase, and level adjustment. You can select the frequency of the 18dB/octave low pass filter (50, 63, 80, 100, or 125 Hz), select the subwoofer phase (normal/reverse), and the subwoofer gain (+6 to -24).
Note: The subwoofer preamp output can be turned On or Off.
Switchable Rear Channel/Subwoofer Speaker Output: The rear speaker outputs can be set to provide full range output with full fading capability, or they can be set to provide non-fading subwoofer (low-pass) output. When the rear speaker outputs are set to subwoofer mode, the rear preamp outputs also switch from full range to subwoofer outputs. When set for subwoofer operation, you can connect the rear speaker leads directly to two small 4-ohm passive subwoofers or a dual voice coil sub with 4-ohm voice coils. If you prefer to use a single 2-ohm subwoofer, you can connect the woofer to one set of speaker leads, leaving the other set of rear leads disconnected. The maximum output provided when a 2-ohm load is connected to one set of leads is 70 watts.
HD Radio: The Pioneer DEH-P7200HD's built-in HD Radio tuner lets you listen to the radio in the same fidelity as your digital music. HD Radio features high quality audio, FM multi-casting, and data services. With HD Radio, your FM stations offer CD-quality sound, AM stations provide FM-quality sound, and there is crystal-clear reception with no audio distortion.
Note: HD Radio is the system for digital AM and FM broadcasting in the U.S. More than 2,000 radio stations are broadcasting their primary signals in digital HD Radio technology, as a free service. Go to HDRadio.com to check for HD Radio stations in your area.
Multicasting: In addition to conventional broadcasts, with HD Radio broadcasting it is possible to choose from up to 3 multicast programs (HD1 to HD3, and analog). There are also data programs for each program.
iTunes Tagging: The head unit's built-in HD Radio tuner offers iTunes Tagging. It is possible to save the song's information (tag) from and HD Radio broadcasting station to your iPod connected to the head unit. iTunes Tagging gives you the ability to "tag" your favorite HD Radio songs and store the information on your connected iPod; without having to scramble for a piece of scrap paper in the car.

Supertuner IIID Tuner: The Supertuner IIID features Feed Forward Control, which avoids multi-path interference. This pre-detection of interference enables quick filter control and results in less distortion. In addition, the Supertuner IIID creates enhanced stereo during multi-path interference, unlike conventional tuners that collapse to mono. Digital processing reduces distortion, and improves Signal-to-Noise Ratio and stereo separation. Advanced analog technology improves signal processing sensitivity.
Reception Blending: If a digital broadcast reception condition gets poor, this unit automatically switches to the analog broadcast of the same frequency level. If this function is set to "On", the tuner switches between digital broadcast and analog broadcast automatically. If this function is "Off", reception will be conducted within an analog broadcast.
