Pioneer Electronics has announced six new single CD car stereo receivers for 2013. All six of the products are to be released this month at prices ranging from $70-$150. All models feature remote controls with some offering smartphone compatibility and the ability to control music from an iPhone.
The two high-end versions support Bluetooth natively and several of the car stereo units support Bluetooth with an accessory. All but the lowest end of the devices also support Android Music and have USB ports on the front.
The entire 2013 lineup has 50 W over four channels and 12 character multi-segment LCDs. Higher-end versions have dual zone illumination with colors that can be changed to match your car. “Not only is it important for Pioneer to include the newest and latest technologies into our products, but they must be easy to use in the car environment,” said Ted Cardenas, vice president of marketing for the Car Electronics Division of Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. “Our new single CD receivers not only offer maximum entertainment value, but they make it extremely convenient for users to integrate their personal devices and stay connected.”
