Feeling the need for higher power? The DEH-P580MP will fix that, real fast: 50 watts of clean MOSFET power will absolutely flood your vehicle. It also features a Deep Blue OEL Display with screensavers and background videos. Playback includes MP3, WMA, and it's ready for Satellite Radio (XM or Sirius) and the hot iPod Adapter.
iTunes® AAC Playback Compatibility!
The DEH-P580MP can play CDs with AAC files ripped using Apple's iTunes Media Player. Now you can make iTunes your one-stop music player for your PC, iPod and CDs as well. (Note: Not compatible with DRM-protected music purchased from Apple iTunes Music Store)
MP3 and WMA Playback
Don't let your favorite music downloads languish on your computer hard drive. Burn them to a CD-R or CD-RW and play them on one of our MP3 and WMA compatible headunits. Each disc you burn has the capacity to hold up to ten complete albums of MP3 music and twenty for WMA discs. Trust us, that's a lot of music. And since these CDs hold so much data, you'll be happy to know that Pioneer MP3 headunits also include a random play mode. You'll also be pleasantly surprised to find that our players support ID3 Tags and WMA text, which display artist, title, track and album information, just like your computer.
Deep Blue OEL Display with Screensavers
The DEH-P580MP's blue OEL (Organic Electro-Luminescent) display upgrades the look of your dash with vibrant color and motion. It comes with two screensaver movies, a level indicator, background animations, and background pictures.
This display also provides you with more music information. For viewing MP3 information, the DEH-P580MP supports both ID3v1 tags and the more current ID3v2. Up to 16 characters can be shown on the display at one time, vs. 8-10 characters on most competitors' models… Plus the rest will auto-scroll (up to 64 characters total!). That means that you can see most artists' full names, not some funky abbreviation.
Card Remote Included
The DEH-P580MP comes with a card remote, allowing you to control key functions without taking your eyes off the road. It fits easily in your hand, and it’s small enough to stash in your console when not in use.
Two-Way Crossover with New Direct Subwoofer Key
The Two-Way Crossover Adjustment is a convenient tool for tailoring your sound — and your subwoofer's levels. Right from your headunit, you can adjust your High-Pass Filter, which will protect your front and rear speakers from power-robbing deep bass notes. Now, use the Subwoofer adjustments to make sure your bass performance has the kick you like. In fact, you can just hit the new Subwoofer Direct button to fine tune the settings at any time!
BMX (Bit Media eXpander) Digital Enhancement
Compressed file formats such as MP3 and WMA are now as common as the Internet. But there are people who feel that compressed music sounds thin, flat and short of depth. To correct this common problem, Pioneer developed BMX technology. BMX studies what's left of the delicate sound frequencies that are usually ignored and makes the necessary adjustments. This improves the shape and overall depth of sound, which results in enjoyment to the ears, especially in the noisy car environment.
Satellite Radio Ready? Ready.
Satellite Radio. It's digital, high-quality programming beamed from satellites. And the signal that doesn't fade, no matter where you drive. It offers commercial-free music of nearly every genre, plus talk, news, sports, weather, and more. There are two companies that offer this great product — XM Radio and Sirius Satellite Radio — and the DEH-P580MP is compatible with both of these subscription-based services. So you choose. You'll just need a Pioneer digital satellite tuner to match the satellite service you select. (Note: the DEH-P580MP controls the Sirius tuner as an Unexpected unit, with some limitations in display and operation. Consult the owner's manuals for more details.)
iPod® Adapter Ready!
Attention current and future iPod owners: this deck can be your gateway to taking your iPod music collection on the road! The new Pioneer iPod Adapter (CD-IB100II or CD-IB100) is now available to add to your Pioneer headunit. Once you connect this adapter, you can control your iPod through the headunit and even view album, artist, and other music info on its display. The Pioneer iPod adapter powers your iPod and even re-charges its internal battery. Just think: now you can play all of your iPod tunes via a powerful Pioneer mobile audio system! (Note: the DEH-P580MP controls the iPod Adapter as an Unexpected unit, with some limitations in display and operation. Consult the owner's manuals for more details.)
