Bring Your Music to Life with Advanced Sound Retriever
This year you can hear the detail, warmth, and clarity the way the artist intended it, from all of the highly compressed MP3, WMA and AAC files playing on your CD player. By restoring data that tends to get lost in the digital compression process, we can make your music sound close to CD quality.

Supertuner IIID AM/FM Tuner
Pioneer's legendary Supertuner IIID combines the best of digital and analog tuner technologies to reduce distortion to bring you exceptional FM and AM performance. If you live in an area where reception is weak, you'll hear a big improvement in signal strength. And when you're near tall buildings, Supertuner IIID reduces the effect of multi-path noise, which occurs when the signal is reflecting off of the buildings.

MOSFET 50W x4 Amplifier for the Power Hungry
Compared to conventional power supplies, the MOSFET amplification circuit is smaller and more efficient, delivering power with less distortion and absolutely zero on/off switching noise. And that doesn't just mean a boost in volume: it means that your music will be cleaner at higher volumes because you're not pushing the limits of the amplification circuit. Clean, efficient power that will rock your vehicle.

The DEH-4200UB is also well-equipped for those who want to expand their system, with three sets of 4V preamp outputs (front/rear/subwoofer) for system expansion with external amps/speakers, and a two-way crossover with separate high and low pass settings.

Get Plugged In
Use the built-in AUX input for connecting any digital portable player and other external auxiliary devices. For extra-convenient access, the input is on the front panel.

Dial In Your Sound
Tweak the sound to your liking with the on-board three-band graphic EQ. A Loudness feature ensures ample low-end even during quiet listening, and standard balance/fader controls let you adjust the stereo image to suit your vehicle and preferences.

This is the best single din player I have come across. I used sony xplod series earlier and have also used kenwood but I realized when I used Pioneer that it is a class apart. I have 4X4 infinity reference speakers installed. 1st time I used my pioneer, I thought "Do I have a sub in my car that I dont know about". I mean, I could actually feel the real power of infinity without amp just by installing pioneer!!

This system is amazing. I can tune it the way I want it too. It has HPF and LPF, so if I had an amp or sub, i can make use of it. One of the best thing about this is the blue OLED screen. Though I would have loved it to be 1.5 times or 2 times bigger than what it is but its great. Lot of options to choose from. I can also setup alarm on it (though i've never used it). The sound reproduction is very clear.

Dont buy the pioneer cable for ur iphone. Your regular charging cable will work just fine.

The negative:
Only thing I dont like is the joystick which is little less on grip. But I rarely use it as I am hooked to the remote.

All in all, the best your money can buy for the price. Thumbs up and pioneer again hit jackpot with this.

I was replacing a 5 year old Pioneer head unit in my truck. For under $200 I don't know how you could ask for anything more. I have 6 speakers in the doors and a sub under the rear seat all run off of 2 amplifiers. When I plugged my iPod into this deck, I had never heard the music on it sound so good. I have used stereos where you plug into a 3.5mm jack from the iPod and there is a huge difference in sound when hooked up via USB. There is no distortion from the additional digital to analog conversions. The display on this unit is a little small, but it displays a lot of information. The control is a little clumsy at first, but after a while it seems intuitive. As another note, don't bother with the iPod cord from Pioneer. Just use the one you use to hook up to your computer. It works just fine.

I'd had enough of my Ram's stock stereo, so I bought this unit to upgrade it. The difference was immediate and dramatic even when driving the OEM speakers (which I have since replaced). Very good sound quality, tight iPod integration, the Aux and USB inputs up front are a godsend, and it looks really sweet.

Highly recommended with a few caveats:

1. The product picture gives the idea that there is some kind of electroluminescent thing happening behind the volume knob. This is misleading and I wish Amazon would do something about it. Still though, the clear plastic behind the volume knob *is* blue tinted and I like how it looks. I think if it was actually lit (like the picture implies), it would be a bit much.

2. When the head unit is set up to control your iPod, it's sllloooow[...] It would take FOREVER to scroll down to, say, Slayer. Maybe I just didn't give myself enough time to get used to it, but because of this, I just control the iPod itself. It does that very well though, with a few features (like auto-stopping and resuming when you leave and return to your car) that I really, really like.

For what it's worth, I've had no problems with any of the iPods I own or have tried with it (Touch 3rd and 4th gen, iPod classic).

3. Some of the setup options are oblique and hard to find. Maybe I'm just getting old, but I've had to refer to the manual a couple of times...something I've really never had to do with other electronics I've owned before. The buttons on the face and the menu options aren't necessarily intuitive, either. Doesn't matter much though. After a few goes, I've got it setup the way I want it and don't have to mess with it much.

4. The volume wheel. This is what prevented me from giving it five stars.

It has the supposed capability of being compatible with hd radio, satalite radio, and bluetooth, but only if you can find and order another bulky part.
They play it up like it has bluetooth and you can take phone calls on your iphone, which is one of the main reasons I got it.

Here is how the iphone works:
Plug it in while nothing is running on the home menu, there is a 75% chance that it will start playing music.
Click on the radio shuffle all and it starts to shuffle all your songs (doesn't remember this setting)
Music plays through the speakers all is well, a phone call comes in music dims ringer is loud.
You click answer and suddenly everything is disconnected and very low volume, it doesn't even switch to speaker mode and does not use the radio, why not?

Now when I get a call I have to unplug the iphone and click answer then click speaker, it's a lame scenario for no reason.

Good radio for the buck, works smoothly and sounds decent. The programming requires a good study of the book, but once you get used to it everything works nicely.

The only thing I was disappointed by was that the unit didn't come with a case for the head unit as they used to - gotta buy that separate.

I purchased this cd player to upgrade the old player that came with my Accord when I bought it. I've had a ton of Pioneer cd players since college(still have my first ever Pioneer cassette deck in the garage) and I've always been happy with them.

I chose this model because: 1) It was 30% off and 2) it has 4 volt pre outs. This was important because I wanted increased sound/sound quality from my amps and did this unit ever deliver. My subs have never sounded better. I'm running an Alpine MRD M500 to two SAS Bazooka 10"s in a slot ported box with about 1.25 cu ft per sub and let me tell you, my neighbors aren't exactly excited about it. The bass sounds so tight and clean that it makes my subs sound like I paid $150 each for them, not $35. Sounds like I have King Kong trapped in my trunk, I promise.

With this CD player the sound quality alone is enough for me to praise it, even output from an iPod through the front aux input is outstanding. But it also looks pretty. You can turn off the lighting (which is pretty bright at night)if you don't want your face lit up when you drive at night. The screen animations when flipping through menu's are pretty cool. Having a remote is nice, but I'll admit, I hardly ever use it. There are so many options as far as adjusting the sound, settings, eq, tone, subwoofer, low pass filters, gain, etc... you can completely fine tune your entire system from the head unit.

The only drawback is the lack of Bluetooth connectivity out of the box. It's like buying a car and not getting the SAT NAV. It gives me sad face. You have to buy an additional receiving unit that connects to this cd player in order to go Bluetooth. To make matters worse, it costs more than the cd player itself.
