Pioneer is showing a new range of car CD players at CES, both entry-level and premium models. At the top of the range are the Pioneer DEH-P7100BT and Premier DEH-P710BT models, which offer hands-free Bluetooth calling, dual USB inputs, iTunes tagging and voice recognition.
Some models will also have iPod control, be HD digital radio and satellite radio ready.
“We’re packing our new single CD players with innovative features that matter to not only kids but also to a broad range of consumers,” said Larry Rougas, vice president of marketing and product planning for the mobile business group of Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. “Pioneer brings the world’s first iTunes tagging feature to two new car CD Players, letting users tag music as they listen to FM radio (using RDS data where available) or HD Radio channels, taking discovery of music to a new level. Pioneer is also powering its audio units to ‘speak the language’ of today’s iPod generation. Features like this not only elevate the driving experience, but provide the convenience of being at home.”
