In-Dash Receiver Specifications

Faceplate Security

Detachable / Removable faceplate security: The most common anti-theft feature. It allows you to take the faceplate with you, thus disallowing operation, which deters theft.

Security Codes: Mainly a feature in high end video units which do not have a detachable face / screen. Once the unit is uninstalled (or stolen), a security code (or PIN) is required upon reinstallation. Though you no longer have your unit after the theft, the thief also does not have your security code, which makes the unit useless. The hope is the thief knows which units have security codes and he/she chooses not to steal your unit because of the security code.

Ghost technology: This is not commonly used, but can be found primarily in a select number of 2004-2005 head units. It creates an illusion that no unit is installed by appearing completely black when turned off. Potential thieves may steer clear because it appears as though no head unit is installed.

Anti-theft covers: Similar to ghost and hiding faces because they only create an illusion that the face/unit is not in place.

ESN: Stands for Electronic Serial Number. Allows the disabling of the radio and allows tracking if it is stolen.

Peak Power Output
This form of power rating refers to the maximum amount of power an electronic device can handle or output in an instant without damage occurring. Often times this maximum is achieved during a brief musical burst, such as a drum accent, or low bass hit.

Some manufacturers display peak power ratings on the face of their products to increase the appeal to consumers. The RMS power rating is more accurate, and we recommend using it for product comparison.

50 watts x 4 channels
RMS Power Output
The amount of continuous power, measured in watts, that an amplifier produces is called RMS power. The higher the RMS rating, the louder and cleaner your music sounds. The RMS output figure is much more accurate than the peak rating when comparing products.
22 watts x 4 channels
Preamp Voltage
The preamp output rating is measured in volts (V). The higher the rating, the stronger the signal. This results in less unwanted noise being picked up.
2 volts
Built-In Equalizer
The number of graphic or parametric equalizer bands the stereo receiver is equipped with. The more EQ options, the more you will be able to adjust your music to your liking.
3-Band Parametric EQ
Button Color
Refers to the color of the physical buttons on the unit.
Green on Black
CD Signal-to-Noise
CD Signal-to-Noise Ratio is a key specification that is often overlooked by newbies. The CD S/N Ratio measures how well the CD player silences background noise. Higher ratings in decibels (dB) indicates less noise, and generally a cleaner signal.
97 dB

Playback Features

AM/FM Tuner
Most in-dash CD players have AM/FM playback allowing you listen to your favorite local radio stations.
CD-R/RW Playback
This feature refers to whether or not the CD player will play finalized CD-R discs and/or CD-RW discs.
MP3 Playback
This feature refers to whether or not the CD player will play discs encoded with MP3 files. To burn a MP3 encoded disc, use the "data" mode on your CD Recorder and finalize the session and/or CD.

Expandability Features

Satellite Radio
This feature signifies whether or not the receiver is compatible with XM or Sirius Satellite Radio. "Optional" means while the receiver is capable of SIRIUS/XM playback and connectivity, you will still need to purchase an additional satellite tuner, adapter, and/or antenna.
Optional - SIRIUS or XM (Accessory required and sold separately)
CD Changer Controls
This feature signifies whether or not the receiver has the ability to control a CD Changer. If a receiver supports this function, it is usually compatible with a same-brand CD changer without the need for an extra adapter.

Smartphone Integration

iPod Audio Integration
This refers to whether or not the receiver can connect to an iPod and allow for audio control and playback of the iPod through the head unit. Head units that have iPod connectivity allow your iPod to be connected and controlled via the head unit, and they will typically connect through the USB input combined with your standard iPod-to-USB charging/connection cable. We encourage you to read the description of the head unit to see if an adapter is required or included, or if you can simply use your own iPod-to-USB cable.
Yes - Pioneer CD-IB100ill Required.

Upgrade to my Pioneer N1

October 23, 2005

I previously owned the N1 just when it came out and couldnt go without it and I was hoping the N2 would prove to be a worthy upgrade to the N1. Unfortunately, although there are some spanking new features, I was expecting a much more refined second version of the N series. The Screen should have received an upgrade over the N1 with probably 7". Also I was hoping to see a much much better graphical user interface to succeed the previous model. I was hoping I could get to see more features that other units getting into navi are comming up with like parking motion sensors, more detailed 3D interface, and very importantly why not a AUX IN in front of the unit for easier and much quicker access to the iPod?? I mean common - to someone like Pioneer - it probably costs like a dollar to put something so basic and highly efficient in the front. So I'm going to base my review on the mostly rating the N1 because I dont find the N2 much different from its previous model. Thanks for looking! Im going to come out with a few more reviews on DVD players and Security Systems and Audio I own - so feel free to look or ask any questions.

Great Product For Price

July 11, 2005

This unit and package is probably one of the best deals for your car stereo/video needs. It doesn't have some of the technical features like some of the more expensive alpine units but it sounds just as good. The screen on this display is over average, but again not quite as nice as the high end alpine displays. For the money you can't go wrong though.

Incredible Unit......

May 6, 2005

This receiver is amazing. Not only does it play DVD/CD and have a tuner, but it also can be upgraded to control and unlimited number of accessories. Back-up camera, cellular phone, complete touchscreen capability and so much more. Where else is it for less than two grand, and from a reputable dealer. Not many, this sonic place is great. I will be doing much business with them soon.
