CD AND DIGITAL MEDIA RECEIVERS
- Bluetooth Wireless ConnectivityÂ â€“ The DEH-X6900BT, DEH-X4900BT, DEH-X3910BT, DEH-X3900BT, MVH-X690BS, MVH-X390BT, and MVH-290BT feature built-in Bluetooth1wireless connectivity for hands-free calling and wireless music streaming.
oÂ Â Â Dual Device ConnectionÂ â€“Â Full-time connection of two smartphone devices enables a call to be picked up by either of the paired phones, eliminating the need to pair and unpair devices, even while streaming audio from either device.
oÂ Â Â Auto Pairing â€“ To simplify the Bluetooth pairing process with iPhoneÂ® devices, compatible models2Â are enabled for Auto Pairing when utilizing a physical USB connection.Â Users simply connect an iPhone to the Pioneer receiver using an iPhone-to-USB cable, and the receiver automatically prompts the user to confirm pairing, eliminating the need to go through the wireless â€œsearching for devicesâ€ process.
oÂ Â Â HFP 1.6 with Wideband Speech â€“ Improves call sound quality for wireless conversations by increasing the frequency bandwidth dedicated to voice calling (now 50Hz – 7kHz) and doubling the sampling frequency (now 16kHz). The result is clearer and more distinct sound for both the user and the call recipient.
oÂ Â Â Music Library Browsing over Bluetooth (AVRCP 1.5) â€“ iPhone owners can search through their playlists, artists, songs, and genres over Bluetooth.Â For Android smartphones enabled with Media Transfer Protocol (MTP), users can browse through folders containing media through folder type and browse in media content folders.Â The smartphone device must be compatible with AVRCP 1.4 profile or newer to access Music Library Browsing over Bluetooth.
oÂ Â Â New to the 2016 receiver line is the ability to register up to five Bluetooth devices into memory to enable automatic pairing.
- USB Connectivityâ€“Â When connected to an iPhone, iPodÂ®, portable USB drives, or AndroidÂ devices via the USB port, users can use basic controls (Play/Pause/FF/Rev/Random/Repeat) and display track, artist and album information.Â Android devices must run OSÂ 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) or newerÂ to useÂ Media Transfer Protocol.
- Siri Eyes Freeâ€“ Pioneer receiver models with Bluetooth enable users of iPhone 4s and above to access Siri Eyes Free3Â with the simple press of a key.Â Siri Eyes Free allows users to make calls, select and play music, hear and compose text messages, get mapping information, listen to notifications, listen to calendar information and add reminders by voice.
