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.

Sound-shaping tools

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.

    It is a good Unit, however it has a glitch

    GHOST from Ohio on 12/20/2012

    Great unit, I bought it, have it for several years, works perfectly, except it has a glitch and I can't figure out if it is my car or the unit, I have it wired properly and tested ALL connections. And everything works, but after 3 days of letting the car sit, it will forget. And its not because of a dead battery. It just resets to factory if not in use. And my wiring is correct because I checked it many times and tested it with the meters and it never broke the memory power.

    Pros: Best unit you could ever buy for quality and ease of use. Works great with my system.

    Cons: After 3 days of inactivity, the unit resets. Still unable to find a cure, Pioneer does not have a way to contact support without filling out your life's history first. Yes the power wires have been tested and correctly installed, I've been through that numerous times, its the unit that does it. It even did this on the bench test.

    Like this 7200 alot. Improved my listening experience. I am ok with my purchase.,

    Pros: HD radio, easy to use.

    Cons: Worried about toggle to change stations breaking. Like to see time of day better when using scroll for ID of Artist and Song title. HD reception comes and goes.

    This stereo is OK

    Ernie from Orlando, FL on 11/22/2011

    2008 Toyota Tacoma
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    The sound quality is good, especially for the price, and that is why this radio gets 3 stars. I mated this to the Sirius Satellite receiver, and the sound is good, but there is no provision for directly typing in the channel you want, so you will find yourself scrolling through channels or presets while you are trying to drive. The remote is also just a channel up/down button, but no keys. The USB drive plays songs in alphabetical order. The only way to separate the songs into playlists is to save them to different Windows folders, but the folders play in alphabetical order. For this reason, I find myself using my iPhone to play music through Bluetooth audio. The menus and settings are not intuitive, and it is difficult to set them up how you want them. Also, be aware that the color of the display is blue, and there is no way to change that (I didn't take stars off for that, just know that the color is fixed at blue.)

    Pros: The HD radio, Satellite(optional), and Bluetooth features (optional) work and sound good.

    Cons: USB and Satellite controls

    multi-function switch fail

    Robert from Minneapolis, Mn on 11/21/2011

    2010 Chevrolet Malibu
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I bought the radio for the sound retriever circuitry, which worked well. HD radio stations were quicker to tune in than older HD radios. I never did get used to the display. and the multi-function switch was too sensitive while driving. I have removed the radio from my car and installed an older JVC HD radio in its place. Will not buy another Pioneer, will keep with the JVC head units.

    Pros: I liked the sound and to normalize the sound across all inputs.

    Cons: When I went to change the time for the time change the multi-function switch failed to bring up the time menu no matter how long I held the switch. I only had the product about 90 days, Aug to Nov. I also did not like the display, either the characters were too small or did not provide enough information. Was not convenient to use with my ipod as I never figured out the pause function.

    Not for moving vehicles

    Nar from Georgia on 11/4/2011

    1996 Ford Mustang
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Driving down the road, enjoying my tunes, reach to adjust the volume and the joystick changes the channel. I'd go to select a preset, but ended up lost on a different station or adjusting the audio properties. I cannot watch the menu to select a preset while I am driving, so many things I just cannot do while moving. I'd get so mad when I was just making a small change and ended up with something I had to stop. At least the faceplate eject button is easy to operate. Too many functions, too few buttons. Last straw today, replacing it. Like shoes, you need to try them on before you buy.

    Pros: Lots of options, great sound, great connectivity to Sirius, Amplifiers, USB, and Bluetooth as an option.

    Cons: The Aggro-stick (aggravating joystick)

    Great Deck!

    Overall, I love this deck. The display is bright and easy to read. Do yourself a favor and read the manual, though. It does tell you a lot more then you can figure out.



    Front panel is confusing! Keep Remote handy

    Mike B from Syracuse N.Y. on 10/14/2011

    I purchased this unit because it has a USB for external Ipod. However i lost the input for my 6 disc changer. This was the first year they eliminated this useful long standing feature. Dumb move. Front panel is very difficult to operate. THE REMOTE CONTROL. is the only way to read settings and adjust according to your taste.This design? Added a USB Port and lost all ease of use. Maybe they will bring back the port for their disc changer? I get some strange Reverb on some fm broadcasts as well as dead air with seemingly strong signal. If you don't need the USB??? look at the model below. I own and have owned many pioneer decks. SLICK NEW IDEAS that are totally useless. Try and drive & adjust.



    Good Unit

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I like this unit a lot. The sound quality is amazing and the HD helps the tuner out. You should hear the AM stations. Only negative is controls on the deck face itself. Keep the remote nearby.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    The Pioneer DEH-P7200HD is the 5th head unit that I have had and the 2nd that I have purchased from Crutchfield. The unit is everthing that Crutchfield said it is, sounds great in my Ranger. The install kit that comes with the unit made for a smooth installation (about 1 1/2 hrs.) Thanks Crutchfield!



    Wonderful Sound Quality

    MikeD from North Georgia Mountains on 8/28/2011

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I bought this unit to replace the oem head unit in my 2006 Toyota Prius. Coupled with the Infinity component speakers I installed in both the front and the rear the sound is truly amazing! Should have done this years ago. Because I live in a rural area I am unable to take full advantage of the HD radio component. Only one radio station within 50 miles of me currently broadcasts the digital HD signal. When I take road trips to Atlanta there are lots of stations broadcasting in HD there, and hopefully in the future more local stations will embrace the new technology. But even on the analog radio broadcasts I currently get from the local stations the sound is light years better than before.



    Typical Pioneer Quality

    JohnM from Utica, NY on 8/23/2011

    I bought this receiver to replace the factory cassette deck in my 86 Monte Carlo SS. With the mounting adapter kit, no cutting was required to install. The dash speakers are still stock. Rear speakers were upgraded in 1986 to 6x9's from factory 4x10's. The only difficultly was verifying factory wire color codes to what was on the install sheet. The sound is excellent and I haven't upgraded the speakers, yet. The joystick and menu are clumsy to use at first but using the remote solves that. The system outputs more power than the stock deck that also had an after market amp connected. I now have gone from 1980's technology to the current state of the art.

    Really awesome head unit. Great sound quality. I primarily use it with my ipod so I would suggest setting it to ipod control because it is difficult to control it with the head unit.



    Lots of bass

    Mike from Chicago, IL on 5/28/2011

    2004 Nissan Maxima
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Things I like about the unit: powerful bass with many sound tweaking options to make it sound just right. Blue color display and easy access to ports such as CD, USB and iPod. The sound is superb and makes my stock speakers 10 times better. What I don't like: The joystick, especially to turn the volume, it's hard to turn and the thin ring becomes painful at times to touch, at least it has the remote also for changing the volume. The HD tuner, is not working in my opinion. Even the regular channels are not being picked up compared to the stock radio. Strange? Though I didn't listen to the radio much in the past either. Now the main reason for the upgrade was to get better bass, OEM radio was very poor in that department, USB hookup for MP3 and can also use my iPhone / Pandora playing from ATT network. It's like having satellite radio. I believe this HD radio needs a new antenna, current antenna is built into the glass and those types of antennas are always weaker at picking up signals.

    2008 Dodge Ram 1500
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I ordered this head unit to replace factory installed unit it in my 2008 Dodge Ram 1500. Crutchfield master sheet made it very easy and took about 30 minutes; excluding time to solder and heat shrink wiring harnesses together. Crutchfield technical support team is awesome!! I have had to contact them four times already and they are always friendly and eager to help. However, I have had some issues with the unit so I could only rate it 3 stars overall. Main issue is with blending turned on I get signal fade, sound cutout, and word repetition repeats; meaning it is as if someone hit repeat or reverse for a split second causing you to hear the same parts of a song or DJ over again. The issue appears to be caused by the switching between HD and analog signal; however, signal strength is not an issue as signal meter is pegged. If I turn offer blending I do not have the problem, but then I get a lot of static. Radio station distance is not the problem either as it is only 20-25 minutes from my house; believe issue may be with antenna adapter for my truck or possible issue with head unit. Still working with Crutchfield technical support on this issue and will have to pull the unit this upcoming weekend to check antenna adapter connection. If all connections are good I will be calling tech support again.



    Pioneer needs to rethink the joy stick controls

    Philip from Midland, TX on 10/30/2010

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I have this unit in a Chevy Tahoe with the Bose system. It really sounds great. Lot more bass then I expected. Great sound quality. You can hook up your IPod or listen to music from a flash drive which is a nice plus. There are enough settings to drive any button pushing fool crazy for about a week trying to figure everything out. There are more bass, loudness and equalizer settings then my last Pioneer system. This unit really gives you the control you want in a well priced deck. The controls are a little tricky, it's easier to use the remote control then it is the main knob. (it's more like a joy stick) Every time I tried to use the knob while driving I ended up doing something I didn't want to do. I had to make all my adjustments while stopped or us the remote. The thought is cool but the use ability is not so good. The display could be a little bit bigger. The lettering is too small to read. If you like playing with your controls and adjusting your music, which we all do, I wouldn't recommend this unit.



    Not what I payed for, but still a good unit.

    Jacob from Las Cruces on 9/30/2010

    2004 Dodge Neon
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    functions and sound quality are perfect, no issue there. However, the build quality here is bordering unnacceptable. The faceplate is clunky and the screen appears to have been an afterthought according to its size relitave to the knob. The knob, this could use some improvement. The knob is a directional pad along with a button. When it is moved off to one side to, say change stations, a button is clicked. The same button is used for all directional functions. What that means to you is that when you want to adjust your EQ settings (often) you need to make sure and press straight in or you may change stations. This has happened to me on several occasions. This is not helped by the rather low mount of the head unit in my Dodge Neon but the issue should be resolved for most setups. Another downer was the lack of Apple Lossless playback support through the iPod USB jack.



    Great Audio Quality - Terrible User Interface

    EngineerGuy from Ohio on 9/14/2010

    2006 Ford Explorer
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Installed this unit and was very pleased with the audio, but unfortunately interacting with the HU while driving was very difficult - I returned it. Almost every function is buried within the confines of a cumbersome volume controller wheel, sometimes 3-4 layers deep. Makes it difficult to even change stations while driving. Screen can't be seen in daylight. NOTE TO MANUFACTURERS: Some of us actually drive our vehicles and don't sit in parking lots trying to impress people with our mobile audio. We need the following in a USEABLE car HU interface: - A Screen that can be seen in the sunlight - Rotary Volume control - Programmable station pre-set buttons (minimum of 6) - Easily accessible EQ (preferably 3 small knobs or faders) - Front and rear USB Anything else you add (DVD video, etc) is gravy, but IMHO any mobile HU should have those.



    Almost Perfect

    2007 Dodge Ram 1500
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Excelent deck with TONS of options. The Deck power is good enough to run Alpine S-series 6x9s and 5-1/4s very well. Pleased with the functions and usability with Aux hookups, USB, and iPod interfaces. Custom sound levels are also a plus. The ONLY CON i have with this product is the function knob... it is not very stable and often find that I am selecting an option, but also scrolling to different menus/songs at the same time... that being said... I give this a 4.5 / 5!!! :)



    Nice Deck

    Pros -The sound quality is great!(Still have OEM speakers installed too) -HD reception is very good - Lot of features in this deck( 5-band equalizer,level loudness,Sound Retriever,high- and low-pass filter)All great stuff -USB works with the Iphone - The remote is easy to use Cons The screen is small,but very easy to read.Takes a little time to get use to the function knob.Could have use a led light behind the knob.It would be easy to see at night.The USB didn't work with my Zune,but it work on the Aux port. Overall the Pioneer DEH-P7200HD is a good quality deck for the price.



    Just what I was after.

    DQD from Chicago, IL on 7/24/2010

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Pioneer maintains the high standard. Crutchfield makes the installation easy. Pros: Great features for the price. Enjoying built-in HD radio. Playing MP3s from a USB thumbdrive is a nice feature and more convenient than my iPod. Nice fit on a '96 Maxima. Even the stock speakers sound better. Cons: Not much. Getting used to the joy-stick-like Master Control (MC) took a bit of time. Like it better now. Crutchfield, your wiring adapter, installation instructions and antenna adapter made the kit all inclusive. Kudos on piecing it all together for me. Your service is great!



    Great deck

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This is the 3rd Pioneer deck I've owned, and each one is better than the previous. This is by far the best Pioneer I've owned, and exceeded my expectations greatly. The HD radio tuner is fantastic and the sound quality of HD over regular FM is noticeable. HD reception is good overall - distance and clarity. Ipod usability is great. The remote is simple and easy to use. Bottom line: Buy this deck!!!!

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This went into a f250 Super-Duty Diesel,and I can finally hear the music over the motor. Light years ahead of the stock head unit this replaced, the extra power makes all the difference to even the puny stock speakers I still have in the back. The pioneers up front sound great now. And best of all, with this unit you don't have to go buy a HD tuner to get the free HD signal that stations have added, it has it built right in! The USB port on the front lets me plug my iPhone 3GS right in and the remote lets me access everything. Sweet. Just wish I could figure out how to set the date and time! then it would get the 5th star.



    best yet

    Brian from Portland Or on 3/11/2010

    1995 Dodge Ram 1500
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    basic operation: I have never been big on the few button's control everything but this one makes it relatively simple after a little time. screen's are clear and for the most part easy to operate. CD: nice clean sound operates as I would expect for any deck. wish there was a better pause button other than just on the remote but that's how most decks' are. Ipod: easy operation good control's sounded pretty good, then I found the sound retriever bumped that up to +2 and wow I think it sounds better than the CD's real impressed with the Ipod control again pause would be nice but I just control with the Ipod (much faster for me) and I have pause back. OK Tuner: Still learning this the owner's manual doesn't help much. I am getting better with this setting preset's took a week to figure out and still getting used to how to and when to switch to the HD channel's. The HD does make a difference on regular channel's but still not CD quality like everyone told me. not the best or easiest control's for the tuner and little info in the manual made it worse. oh and mute button would be nice again... Overall I would suggest this to a friend.



    Two thumbs up Pioneer

    Anonymous from Charleston, SC on 3/2/2010

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I installed this head unit into my 1999 Silverado almost two weeks ago. I previously had a Sony head unit hooked up to my JL Audio amplifiers and speakers and I thought that sounded good. When I hooked this one up it brought my speakers to life. The sound quality is great! Installation was also fairly easy. I mainly bought this unit of its ability to control an ipod from the unit its self or from the iPod. i find my self using the unit itself to control my iPod more and more. Text seems to be decent in size. I haven't had a problem yet with not being able to read it. It is also nice to be able to skip songs using the head unit when controlling the music from the iPod itself. The clarity of the HD radio is also great. It sounds almost as good as using an iPod. I can not comment on the sound quality of the cd player at this time seeing as I have yet to use it. Menu navigation was a bit cumbersome at first but after a few times of playing with it, it is as easy as can be. I would highly recommend the Pioneer DEH-7200HD to you.

    After being so freakin' picky... after owning so many other head units in the past... I can always honestly say that Pioneer has NEVER let me down! This head unit has amazed me! I just got an iPod and it is amazing the feaures it brings to match with it! I love it! I never have to touch my iPod while driving and I can honestly say that the quality and sound of the radio is great! Thank YOU Pioneer for making another great addition to ur awesome radios, and THANK YOU Crutchfield for selling it! a definite 5-stars from me!

    2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Great radio! I recently purchased a 2008 Cherokee and did not like the installed radio. I have been a longtime user of XM radio (since 2001) and could not get used to the channels that Sirius offered, so I had to switch back. I needed a radio that had an AUX input, XM Radio, and I really wanted one that could handle HD Radio. This radio is PERFECT for the price. With the HD radio being built in, the only thing I needed to purchase was the XM receiver. Installation took only a couple of hours. The radio looks really sweet installed in the Jeep. The HD radio sounds amazing, and I really love being able to see the names of the songs on the radio. The best part of this radio that I found was the USB jack. I don't have or will ever have an iPod, so I wasn't expecting too much, but I connected my 32 gig flash drive to this and it works perfectly. Scrolling through the songs is easy and there is no delay whatsoever. I love the fact that I no longer have to burn CD's anymore and I can still be able to see the song titles. The one downside of this radio is that the lettering is very small. My previous radio had the letters much larger, but that's ok. It will just take some adjustments. I highly recommend this radio if you are looking for a higher end budget radio with all the bells and whistles.

    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.

    Radio Functions

    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 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. Then later you can connect your iPod/iPhone to your PC and preview or purchase the "tagged" music at the iTunes Music Store. The songs will show up in a playlist called "Tagged" in iTunes the next time you sync your iPod. Then you can directly buy the songs you want from the iTunes Music Store.

    Note: iTunes Tagging is supported by the following iPod/iPhone models - iPod nano (3rd/4th/5th/6th gen), iPod classic (80/120/160GB), iPod touch (1st/2nd/3rd/4th gen), iPhone (2G/3G/3GS/4).

    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.
