This time of year is always an exciting time as manufacturers are beginning to ship the new units that we have been hearing about for a few months. Pioneer has been releasing information about their new audio/video receivers for a little while now, but they have just recently begun to ship. The anticipation from the press release to the time that we are actually using the unit is sometimes unbearable. With the new line of Pioneer audio/video products now shipping, the car audio industry is reaching a new level of sound quality and convenience in the car.
A prime example of a benchmark audio/video in-dash car stereo is the Pioneer AVH-P4300DVD. Out of the box, this unit gives you plenty of options for a top-notch audio system that will make all the other AV units out their jealous. To accomplish this, Pioneer has fine-tuned the equalizer from the previous model for an Easy EQ (EEQ) 8-band graphic equalizer. This allows the listener to adjust the sound quality with great accuracy. They have also incorporated a 24-bit D/A converter, Dolby Digital decoding, Linear PCM decoding, as well as DTS digital out. It is starting to sound like a Pioneer home receiver isn’t it? These audio improvements assist in the overall processing of audio, but really shine when you pop a DVD into the receiver. For complete audio equalization, try using the Pioneer CD-MC20 auto-tuning microphone.
One of the best parts of the AVH-P4300DVD is that is fully customizable to be a system that is just what you want. The benefit of this is that you aren’t paying for extra features that you don’t need or will never use. Some of these features include GPS navigation, satellite radio (SIRIUS and XM), HD Radio, Bluetooth, back-up camera, iPhone/iPod support, and steering wheel control. We look forward to this unit being one of the most popular car stereos in 2011.
