About the Pioneer DEH-P80MP
You can sum up the brilliance of Pioneer's DEH-P80MP CD receiver in one word: wow. It's a receiver unlike any out there, a thrilling combination of eye-catching design and ear-pleasing performance. In short, it's the ideal receiver. Like we said wow.
It all starts out with the advanced, deep blue Organic EL display on the motorized, fold-down faceplate, which comes standard with two screensaver movies, two styles of level indicator, four background animations, and two background pictures. Better yet: you can upload your own custom screensavers and pictures via CD-R to make the display truly your own. Your passengers will be blown away!
Like many advanced receivers, the DEH-P80MP plays MP3 and WMA files you've loaded on disc. Unlike most, the DEH-P80MP features a 7-way rotary commander, which helps you flip through your files and folders at lightning speed, so you can find the tracks you want as quickly as possible.
To ensure that all your musical sources sound spectacular, Pioneer outfitted the DEH-P80MP with a MOSFET60 internal amplifier, which pumps out your tunes at a jaw-dropping 27 watts RMS (by four channels). Your music will sound bolder and more robust than ever before!
Easy EQ also stands at the ready, letting you apply one of five preset EQ curves or design your own curve with the 3-band parametric EQ. You can then boost the curve you choose with EQ-EX. Sound Focus EQ, meanwhile, has the ability to center the soundstage toward the front of the car, where you're sitting. High- and low-pass filters help you send the right frequencies to the right speakers, maximizing system performance.
If you're looking to expand your system, the DEH-P80MP has your back. Built-in satellite radio controls let you connect a compatible tuner and dive into everything that satellite radio has to offer (XM or SIRIUS tuner, antenna, and subscription required). And three sets of 4-volt preamp outputs are just begging for you to add external amplifiers to get even more oomph out of your system. For convenient operation, a wireless remote is also included.

Deep Blue OEL Display: The deep blue OEL (Organic Electroluminescent) display features incredible brightness, clear readability, wide-angle viewing and full-motion 3D graphics. Because OEL creates its own electroluminescent light, its brightness is resistant to washing out in sunlight.
Entertainment Display Modes: You can choose from the following Entertainment Display Modes:
- Background Visual: In Background Visual mode, you can select one of the following background visuals: Background Visual 1 (pinball machine), Background Visual 2 (webbed tunnel with streaming light), Background Visual 3 (rotating illuminated shape), or Background Visual 4 (moving patterns of light).
- Background Picture: In Background Picture mode, you can select one of the following background pictures: Background Picture 1 (horizontal bars) or Background Picture 2 (brick wall with graffiti).
- Movie Screen: In Movie Screen mode, you can select one of the following movie screens: Movie Screen 1 (concert with dancing) or Movie Screen 2 (speedboat racing).
- Level Meter: In Level Meter mode, you can select one of the following level meters: Level Meter 1 (two analog VU meters) or Level Meter 2 (two lines of light that move with the music).
- Entertainment Clock: In Entertainment Clock mode, the unit displays the clock surrounded by moving shapes.
Custom Entertainment Displays: Using the free Pioneer OEL Screensaver Studio software, you can customize your display with your own background pictures or screensavers. Once the images are created, they can be copied to a CD-R. The CD-R can then be inserted into the DEH-P80MP and the images downloaded.
Note: The Pioneer OEL Screensaver Studio software can be downloaded from Pioneer's website.
Display Brightness: The display brightness can be adjusted from 0 to 15.
Demo Modes: This unit has a Reverse Demo Mode and a Feature Demo Mode. In Reverse Demo Mode, if you do not perform an operation for a period of 30 seconds, the display begins reversing colors. It continues reversing colors every 10 seconds until a button is pushed. When the unit is turned off, the Feature Demo Mode is activated. The Feature Demo Mode displays the unit's different features and capabilities using moving graphics.
7-Way Rotary Commander: The 7-Way Rotary Commander is like a musical joystick, allowing you to control 90% of the unit's functions and features.
MOSFET 60 Higher Power: This receiver is equipped with a 60 watts x 4 (peak) MOSFET amplifier. Compared to conventional power supplies, the MOSFET amplification circuit is smaller and more efficient, and it delivers power with less distortion and absolutely zero on/off switching noise.
Note: Using the switch on the bottom of the chassis, you can set the amplifier output to 60 watts x 4 or 40 watts x 4.
Satellite Radio Tuner Compatible: This unit can control an optional Pioneer XM or SIRIUS tuner (sold separately).
Compatible with Optional TV Tuner: This head unit can control an optional Pioneer TV tuner (not supplied).
Easy EQ Curves: This model has "SUPER BASS", "POWERFUL", "NATURAL", "VOCAL", "CUSTOM", and "FLAT" preset EQ curves. The "CUSTOM" curve is one that you create and store in memory. A separate "CUSTOM" curve can be created and stored in memory for each source.
EQ-EX: This feature allows you to boost the current EQ setting for even more powerful sound.
3-Band Parametric Equalizer: This unit includes a 3-band parametric EQ with Selectable Q Factor. You may select a low (40, 80, 100 or 160Hz), mid (200, 500, 1k or 2kHz) and high frequency (3.15k, 8k, 10k or 12.5kHz) to boost or cut within a range of -6dB to +6dB. The Q factor (slope of the boost or cut) may be selected from one of the following four options: 2N (narrow), 1N, 1W and 2W (wide). Selecting a narrow (steep) Q factor results in frequencies around the center frequency to be affected less by the boost or cut than they are with a wide Q factor. This feature is useful for taming frequency response problems caused by the dimensions, materials and speaker locations of a vehicle.
Selectable Bass and Treble Cut-off Frequencies: The cut-off frequencies for the bass and treble controls can be set independently of the 3-band parametric equalizer adjustments. The bass cut-off frequency can be set to 40Hz, 63Hz, 100Hz or 160Hz. The treble cut-off frequency can be set to 2.5kHz, 4kHz, 6.3kHz or 10kHz. The bass and treble controls have an adjustment range of -6 to +6.
Sound Focus Equalizer (SFEQ): The SFEQ feature is made to enhance the soundstage in the front of the vehicle by increasing the clarity of vocals and instruments. There are two primary SFEQ modes ("FRT1" and "FRT2"), and there is a "CUSTOM" mode. The "FRT1" mode boosts the treble on the front outputs while boosting the bass on the rear outputs; when this mode is selected, treble adjustments affect the front channels only, and bass adjustments affect only the rear channels. The "FRT2" mode boosts the treble and bass on the front outputs while boosting only the bass on the rear outputs; when this mode is selected, treble adjustments affect the front channels only, and bass adjustments affect the front and rear channels. You may select "HI" or "LOW" operation for the "FRT1" and "FRT2" modes; the "HI" setting of each mode provides a more pronounced effect than the "LOW" setting. If you adjust the bass or treble setting while an SFEQ mode is on, the adjustment is applied to the selected SFEQ mode and that setting is kept in memory as the "CUSTOM" SFEQ mode. The SFEQ feature also includes a seating position setting that helps tailor the sound to where people are sitting in the vehicle.
Automatic Sound Levelizer (ASL): During driving, road noise in the car changes according to the driving speed and road conditions. The Automatic Sound Levelizer monitors the road noise and automatically increases the unit's volume level, if the road noise becomes greater. The sensitivity of this feature can be set to one of five levels (low, mid-low, mid, mid-high, or high).
Adjustable Loudness: You can select "Low", "Mid" or "High" for different levels of loudness compensation.
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 -4 dB to +4 dB.
High-pass Filter: When you don't want sound in the subwoofer frequency range output from the front and rear speakers, you may activate the built-in high-pass filter. You may select a filter frequency of 50Hz, 80Hz, or 125Hz.
Subwoofer/Non-fading Preouts: In addition to the front and rear preamp outputs, there is one set of outputs that may be set for "subwoofer" or "non-fading" output. When set to "non-fading", the signal is full range and the output level is user selectable from -6 to +6. When set to "subwoofer", the outputs are non-fading, and they may be set for normal or reverse phase, 50Hz/80Hz/125Hz low-pass output, and the level is user selectable from -6 to +6.
Rear Channel Output: You can choose to use the rear channel output (speaker and preout) for full-range speaker or subwoofer. If you select "subwoofer", you can connect a 4-ohm subwoofer directly to each rear speaker lead without using an external amplifier.
Supertuner IIID AM/FM 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.
MP3/WMA Playback: This unit can play MP3/WMA files recorded on CD-ROM, CD-R, and CD-RW discs in ISO9660 Level 1/Level 2, Joliet, and Romeo formats. MP3 files with a bit rate from 8-320 kbps, WMA files with a constant bit rate from 48-320 kbps, and WMA files with a variable bit rate from 48-384 kbps are supported.
Compression and BMX Functions: Using the "COMP" (compression) and "BMX" functions, you can adjust the playback quality of the CD player. Each function may be set to one of two levels or off. The "COMP" function compresses the audio signal to eliminate distortion caused by the imbalances between the loudest and softest sounds when played at high volumes. The "BMX" function controls sound reverberations to give playback a fuller sound.
CD-R/CD-RW Skip Function: Some CD-R/W recorders allow you to assign skip ID tags to tracks that you never want to hear. When a track has been assigned a track skip ID, compatible units will recognize the skip ID information and skip over that track. This player recognizes track skip IDs, so CD-R and CD-RW discs with skip ID information will be played back as intended.
Disc Title Memory: Titles of up to 10 characters each can be entered into memory for up to 48 discs. When a compatible changer is connected, titles of up to 10 characters each can be entered into memory for up to 100 discs in the changer.
Optional Aux Input: When used with item 130CDRB10 (sold separately) or item 130CDRB20 (sold separately), this unit can accept input from an auxiliary source, such as a portable CD or MD player. When item 130CDRB10 is used, a CD changer cannot be connected to this unit. Item 130CDRB20 allows you to connect an optional Pioneer CD changer and an auxiliary source to this unit.
Dimmer Feature: When the illumination wire of this unit receives power and the dimmer feature has been turned on in the "Initial Setting" menu, the display will dim to a preset level. When the power and constant wires are connected and the illumination wire is supplied with voltage (when you turn your lights on), the button illumination remains on even if the unit is turned off completely.
Warning Tone: If the front panel is not detached from the head unit within four seconds of turning off the ignition, a warning tone will sound. This feature can be turned On or Off.
ITS (Instant Track Selection) Programming: The ITS function can be used to program automatic playback of up to 99 tracks per disc for up to 100 discs. With changers sold before the CDX-P1250 and CDX-P650, up to 24 tracks can be stored in the playlist.
Disc Title Memory: Titles of up to 10 characters each can be entered into memory for up to 100 discs.
Disc Title List: This feature allows you to display disc titles that you have entered. From the list, you can select a disc for playback.
CD Text Display: When used with a CD Text compatible Pioneer CD changer, this unit will display the titles of CD Text encoded discs that are played in the changer. When playing a CD Text disc on a CD Text compatible changer, you cannot switch to the Disc Title Input mode. CD Text disc titles, artist names and track titles longer than 14 characters may be scrolled to reveal the entire string of text.
CD Sound Quality Adjustment: Using the "COMP" (compression) and "DBE" (dynamic bass emphasis) functions, you can adjust the playback quality of the changer. Each function may be set to one of two levels or off. The "COMP" function compresses the audio signal to eliminate distortions caused by the imbalances between the loudest and softest sounds when played at high volumes. The "DBE" function boosts bass frequencies to give your music a more full sound.
Note: For these functions to work, they must be supported by the Pioneer CD changer.
DVD Operation: This unit can control an optional Pioneer DVD player or DVD changer.
Display Illumination/Clock Display: When the Clock Display has been turned on, pressing and holding the source button turns off audio output, but the clock display remains on. When the Clock Display has not been turned on, pressing and holding the source button turns the unit off completely. This unit's clock is "keyed" only when the Clock Display has been turned on. When power is supplied to both power wires and the illumination wire is not receiving voltage, nothing illuminates if the Clock Display has not been turned on and the unit is off.
Note: When the power and constant wires are connected and the illumination wire is supplied with voltage (when you turn your lights on), the button illumination remains on even if the unit is turned off completely.
