Pi­o­neer sin­gleDIN pow­er­houses

Fast Car - - Contents -

You don’t have to com­pro­mise on a su­perb car stereo sys­tem just be­cause you have the fine taste to run a car with a tra­di­tional sin­gleDIN ra­dio slot. Thanks to Pi­o­neer’s min­i­mal, clean de­sign phi­los­o­phy you have the best of both func­tion and form, with­out hav­ing to air-chisel a dou­bleDIN­sized hole in your dash­board. That said, even if you DO have a dou­bleDIN dash, you can still fit one of these – and fill the other slot with ex­tra gauges or a phone slot!

Here’s our quick run­down on what’s hot in the cur­rent Pi­o­neer range – al­low­ing all of the func­tion­al­ity of a mod­ern dou­bleDIN within the con­ve­nience of a sin­gleDIN chas­sis. As al­ways, the smart­phone now dom­i­nates and im­proves in-car life, so con­nec­tiv­ity is key to en­ter­tain­ment, nav­i­ga­tion, au­dio and video.

Once hooked up with your Ap­ple or An­droid de­vice, there’s a whole new world of in-car pos­si­bil­i­ties and in­fo­tain­ment to ex­plore...


A next-gen­er­a­tion CD tuner with next-level per­for­mance, the DEHX7800DAB comes equipped with Blue­tooth and USB com­pat­i­bil­ity and con­nects to both Ap­ple and An­droid de­vices for seam­less in­te­gra­tion when mak­ing hands-free calls or stream­ing mu­sic via a 4G phone con­nec­tion. High-end au­dio fea­tures, such as loss­less FLAC com­pat­i­bil­ity, a 13-band Graphic EQ, 4x50 Watts MOSFET am­pli­fier and Time Align­ment make sure you’ll get the very best sound qual­ity from any ve­hi­cle the unit is in­stalled in. Don’t let that sim­ple, con­ven­tional fas­cia and mod­est price fool you. This is packed with all of the mod­ern tech to make a smart life even smarter. Price: £149


For en­try-level smart­phone con­nec­tiv­ity and dig­i­tal ra­dio, this re­ally is the best of both worlds. Think that just be­cause you only have lim­ited space and re­quire a ‘nor­mal’ stereo fas­cia it will be lack­ing in con­nec­tiv­ity? Think again. The DEH-S410DAB car stereo lets you en­joy the con­ve­nience of dig­i­tal ra­dio, thanks to the in­te­grated DAB/DAB+ Dig­i­tal Ra­dio tuner, while Auto DAB Tun­ing makes it very easy to use. For more mu­sic play­back, you can play your favourite CDs or sim­ply hook up your iPod, iPhone, or USB stick to the front USB or Aux-in.
