Overview: The Pioneer DEH-2100IB is an AM/FM/CD receiver
which supports MP3/WMA playback and will display ID3-Tag and CD Text
information. The DEH-2100IB AM/FM/CD receiver also features a front-panel 3.5mm auxiliary input
for connecting portable devices such as a portable MP3 player. In addition, the
DEH-2100IB features a rear-panel proprietary port and comes supplied with a 5'
iPod connector cable for connecting your iPod (with dock connector).
CEA2006 Compliant: The power specifications for the
DEH-2100IB 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-1100MP are
- 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
The DEH-2100IB 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.
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.
BSM (Best Stations Memory): The BSM (Best Stations Memory) function
lets you automatically store the six strongest stations under preset buttons 1-6
of the currently tuned band. The tuner has 3 FM banks and 1 AM bank. You can
store 6 presets for each bank giving you a total of 18 FM presets and 6 AM
Local Tuning: Local seek tuning
lets you tune in only those radio stations with sufficiently strong signals for
good reception. There are 4 level of sensitivity for FM and two levels for AM.
The higher settings allow reception of only the strongest stations, while lower
settings let you receive progressively weaker stations.
MP3/WMA/WAV Playback: This unit can play MP3, WMA and WAV
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. The unit is compatible with ID3 Tags and
will display artist, folder, file, and album name, plus comments. Up to 8
directories, 99 folders and 999 files per disc are recognized by this unit.
List Button: The List button on the front panel lets you see
the list of file names (or folder names) and select one of them to playback.
Once the List button is pressed, you can turn the multi-control knob to view
each item on the list. To select the highlighted item, you can press the
Compression/BMX: The Compression and BMX digital enhancement
functions let you adjust the sound quality of compressed audio file playback.
You can set up to two levels of COMP and BMX, or turn each function off.
EEQ (Easy EQ): The DEH-2100IB is equipped with a 3-band EQ
with 6 preset EQ settings: Powerful, Dynamic, Vocal, Natural, Custom, and EQ
Flat. The bands can be adjusted as follows:
- Bass: +/- 6dB at 100 Hz
- Mid:+/- 6dB at 1 kHz
- Treble:+/- 6dB at 10 kHz
Loudness: The Loudness feature compensates for deficiencies in the low
and high sound ranges at low volume. You can set the Loudness feature to High,
Low, or Off.
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.
Auxiliary Input: The DEH-2100IB is equipped with a front
panel 3.5mm stereo minijack auxiliary input for connecting external components,
such as a portable MP3 player, DVD, or VCR. AUX must be turned on in the setup
menu in order to be selected as a source.
2.2-Volt Preamp Output: The Pioneer DEH-2100IB features one
pair of 2.2 volt preamp outputs (left/right) fixed to its rear chassis.
LED Display: The DEH-1100MP features a black background with
a one-line, 10-character white Dot-Matrix OEL display.
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 been turned
off, pressing and holding the source button turns the unit off completely. Even
if you have turned the radio completely off you can view the clock display be
pressing the clock button. The clock will then remain On until you turn it back
Off. When the unit is On you can select between the clock display or the audio
Detachable Face Security: This unit features Detachable Face
Security. A face-fixing screw is supplied for making the face non-detachable, if
Note: No face case is included with this unit. An
optional soft face case (item # 142DFC1X) can be purchased for this unit.
Remote Control: The DEH-2100IB comes with a wireless remote
control (CXC8885). The remote allows you to control the volume, switch between
sources, pause the CD, change the display, and adjust the audio. The attenuator
button allows you to quickly lower the volume by about 90%, a function that
cannot be performed from the front panel.
