Pioneer Europe: Three new high-power CD tuners, providing the versatility of both SD cards and USB connectivity, will be available from Pioneer across Europe in January.
All 3 models allow you to connect an iPod, iPhone, portable MP3 player or USB device, or simply insert an SD card.
Each tuner also offers complete flexibility when it comes to connecting extra amplifiers, speakers and subwoofers. Engineered to the best-in-class audio standards that Pioneer has set over the years, these new tuners enhance the sound quality of compressed music to ensure a dynamic in-car listening experience.
The new CD tuners each have an SD Card Slot discreetly hidden behind their front panels, compatible with both SD and SDHC cards. The units allow playback of MP3, WMA, WAV and AAC files from SD.
Other versatile connections include a front USB high-speed 2.0 direct interface to simply link USB audio devices and immediately enjoy a selection of tunes.
All three new models are designed as the most dynamic solution to connect and improve playback performance for iPods and iPhones. With iPod Direct Control, consumers can connect their iPod straight to the tuner’s Front USB terminal and take charge of their music from behind the wheel. As a handy extra, the iPod will charge while connected.
