Pioneer Kicks Off New Line of Multimedia In-Dash AVRs

Pioneer Electronics introduced two new in-dash multimedia A/V receivers designed improve to in-vehicle entertainment and connectivity. The AVH-201EX and AVH-200EX double-DIN 6.2” models are the first of Pioneer’s new line of 2018 in-dash multimedia receivers.

  • Bluetooth® Wireless Connectivity – The new models feature built-in Bluetooth1 wireless capability for convenient hands-free calling as well as music streaming with compatible Bluetooth enabled devices. Three smartphones can be pre-registered with the unit at once, enabling hands-free calling and/or music to be streamed from any of the three previously paired phones, eliminating the need to pair and unpair devices. Connected devices are displayed via the device selection menu on the face of the receiver, making it easy for users to switch between connected smartphones.
    • To maximize the connectivity options and call quality for hands-free communication and wireless audio streaming, the AVH receivers feature Bluetooth HFP 1.6 with wideband speech for clearer overall sound quality, making it easier to recognize and understand voices during calls, and AVRCP 1.5 to provide browsing capability of a user’s media library.
    • iPhone® devices can use Bluetooth to search through playlists, artists, songs, and genres. For Android® smartphones enabled with Media Transfer Protocol (MTP), users can browse through media folders via folder type2. Smartphone device must be compatible with AVRCP 1.4 profile or newer to access Bluetooth Audio File Browsing.
  • USB Audio/Video Connectivity – When connected to an iPhone, iPod®, portable USB drive or compatible Android device3 via the USB port, users can use basic controls (Play/Pause/FF/Rev/Random/Repeat) and display track, artist and album information for music playback. The AVH-201EX and AVH-200EX are compatible with the following audio and video codecs via USB mass storage class devices:
    • Audio - WMA/MP3/WAV/AAC
    • Video - MP4/MOV/AVI
  • Customizable User Interface – The user interface has been redesigned to provide more user-friendly operation, with larger icons for quick recognition and access. Users can customize the look of their receivers by selecting between five (blue/red/amber/green/white) colors for the display, 112 button illumination colors and expanded wallpaper options. A clear resistive touchscreen provides brighter, more vibrant colors and increased touch sensitivity, making it more responsive than traditional resistive touch panels.
  • Enhanced Audio Functions – The receivers are designed with a 13-band Graphic Equalizer with touch panel swipe setting and built-in high/low pass crossover with expanded adjustable crossover points and slopes. Built-in manual Time Alignment provides customized audio adjustments for the driver.
