Overview: The Pioneer DEH-7300BT is an AM/FM CD receiver
that can play MP3, WMA, and WAV audio files on CD-R and CD-RW discs, as well as
from a portable USB device. It has a front-panel 3.5mm auxiliary input for
portable devices, as well as a front-panel USB input for your iPod/iPhone, or other
USB-based portable audio player or USB memory device.
The Pioneer CD receiver also features built-in Bluetooth for hands-free
communication. The DEH-7300BT is equipped with a MOSFET 50 x 4ch (Peak) amplifier and two pair
of 2V preamp outputs. In addition, the DEH-7300BT includes an IR remote control for wireless
operation, and supports factory OEM steering wheel controls (via optional
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
sold separately) can be purchased for this unit.
White OEL Display: The DEH-7300BT features a bright white
OEL Display (1-line/10-Character) that can display upper- and lower-case
characters. This display makes it easy to read and cycle through song titles,
artists, and other texts.
Ever Scroll: When the Ever Scroll feature is set to On,
recorded text information scrolls continuously on the display. It will
auto-scroll up to 64 characters. Set this feature to Off if you prefer the
information to scroll only once.
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 by
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
24 Bit D/A Converter: The Pioneer in-dash head unit utilizes
a 24-bit digital to analog converter for superior CD sound quality.
MOSFET Amplifier:The DEH-7300BT 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-7300BT 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-7300BT 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 (or 50
watts x 2 channels at 4 ohms + 70 watts x 1 channel at 2 ohms for subwoofer)
3-Way Rotary Commander: The
Pioneer DEH-7300BT features a 3-Way Rotary Commander for easy control.
You can scroll through your music and audio settings with greater ease using the
3-way rotary commander.
Advanced Sound Retriever: The Advanced Sound Retriever automatically enhances
compressed audio and restores the original richness of the recording. When
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
Advanced Sound Retriever effect.
EEQ (Easy EQ): The DEH-7300BT is equipped with a 3-band EQ
with 6 preset EQ settings: Powerful, Dynamic, Vocal, Natural, Custom, and EQ
Flat. The Custom band 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 Low, Mid, High, 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.
Dual 2.0-Volt Preamp Outputs: The Pioneer DEH-7300BT
features two pair of 2.0-volt preamp outputs (Front & Rear/SW). The unit's rear preamp output can be configured as a
fading rear-channel output or a non-fading subwoofer output
with a low-pass filter, phase adjustment, and output level control.
Subwoofer Controls: When
the unit's Rear/SW preamp output is configured as a subwoofer
output, 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).
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.
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.
RDS: The Radio Data System (RDS) feature displays radio broadcast
information such as artist, title, and album when listening to compatible AM/FM
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.
