Internal Amplifier: This receiver is
equipped with a 50 watts x 4 (peak) MOSFET amplifier for low distortion, high
power output. The amplifier is strong enough to power small subwoofers to
moderate volume levels in compact cars and pickups. For higher volume levels
from subwoofers, an optional amplifier may be connected to the preamp outputs.
XM Satellite Radio Tuner
Compatible: This unit can control an optional Pioneer XM tuner (sold
separately). XM Satellite Radio programming features 100 channels of
digital-quality music, news, talk, sports, entertainment, and children's
programming. For a monthly subscription fee, you will be able to receive the XM
signal in your car using an optional XM antenna and tuner.
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.
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 -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.
(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: You can
select "Low", "Mid" or "High" for different levels
of loudness compensation.
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.
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.
MP3 Playback: This
unit can play MP3 files recorded on CD-ROM, CD-R, and CD-RW discs in ISO9660
Level 1/Level 2, Joliet, and Romeo formats.
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.
Title Memory: Titles
of up to 8 characters each can be entered into memory for up to 48 discs. When a
compatible changer is connected, titles of up to 8 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.
If the front panel is not detached from the head unit within 5 seconds of
turning off the ignition, a warning tone will sound. This feature can be turned
On or Off.
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.
Title Memory: Titles
of up to 8 characters each can be entered into memory for up to 100 discs.
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
16 characters may be scrolled to reveal the entire string of text.
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.
For these functions to work, they must be supported by the Pioneer CD
When the Time Display has been turned on, pressing and
holding the source button turns off audio output, but the clock display and
button/face illumination remain on. When the Time Display has not been turned
on, pressing and holding the source button turns the unit off completely.
This unit's clock and night illumination are
"keyed" only when the Time Display has been turned on. When the Time
Display has not been turned on, the unit is off, and power is supplied to the
power and constant wires, nothing illuminates.
