Our take on the Pioneer DEH-2700 by Crutchfield's Matt Freeman
Pioneer packed the DEH-2700 CD receiver with lots of the features you love, then slapped a price tag on it that's hard to beat! The detachable face, with its multicolor display and rotary volume knob, looks great in any dash. And this in-dash dynamo pumps out plenty of power (20 watts RMS x 4), so your tunes will sound strong.
You'll be impressed when you listen to your favorite FM and AM stations. Pioneer's Supertuner IIID, with its digital processing, offers up spacious stereo sound, top-notch station-grabbing selectivity, and ultra-clear reception.
To get your music sounding just the way you want it, take a spin through Easy EQ. It features five preset EQ curves for quick adjustments, plus a three-band parametric equalizer that lets you tailor the tone around your car's acoustics for natural sound. And if more power's on your agenda, you can add an amp to the set of preamp outputs.
This Head unit has some major power for the price. It could use a few features on it. This is a plain jane reciever but it gets the job done in my truck. Pioneer is always a safe bet on anything. I have always had good luck with these head units.

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.
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 (3k, 8k, 10k or 12kHz) to boost or cut within a range of -6 dB to +6 dB. 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.
F.I.E. (Front Image Enhancer): This feature enhances the front image by cutting mid- and high-range frequencies to the rear speakers, limiting their output to low-range frequencies. You may select a cutoff frequency of 100, 160 or 250Hz.
Loudness Settings: Loudness compensates for deficiencies in the low and high frequencies at low volumes. You can select from three loudness contours:
- Low: +3.5 dB boost at 100 Hz and a +3 dB boost at 10 kHz
- Mid: +10 dB boost at 100 Hz and a +6.5 dB boost at 10 kHz
- High: +11 dB boost at 100 Hz and a +11 dB boost at 10 kHz
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.
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.
BSM (Best Stations Memory): BSM lets you automatically store the six strongest stations under preset buttons 1-6 of the currently tuned band.
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.
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 and face/button illumination remain on. When the Clock Display has not been turned on, pressing and holding the source button turns the unit off completely. This unit's illumination and clock are "keyed" only when the Clock Display has been turned on.
