Pioneer P99

Category: Pionner
Product Code: P99

This latest CD tuner is a first in Pioneer's line-up of head units to feature an in-built high-precision signal processor, offering audiophiles a revolutionary head unit that produces unparalleled sound performance akin to a live concert.

 Match with other RS Series components to create a Symphony of Sound.

 Earlier this year, the European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA) granted the prestigious European in-car high-end component 2009-2010 award to the DEX-P99RS, praising the CD tuner for being the "first-ever self-contained head unit that is truly high-end."

 Incorporating superior audio functionalities and performance from Pioneer's ODR products, the DEX-P99RS head unit falls under Pioneer's Reference Series competition grade components. The DEX-P99RS is designed to replace (and advance the performance of) the award-winning DEX-P90RS and DEQ-P90RS Pioneer CD tuner and processor package, which is highly popular with enthusiasts.

   
 
 
Dynamic Sound
 
 
 

Pioneer's renowned 4-way Digital Signal Processor (DSP) is now built in without the need for a separate blackbox, allowing high-precision tuning capabilities while maintaining high-levels of digital signal quality. The DSP provides complete control of the signal processing and networking allowing you to optimise your sound system perfectly, depending on the cars sound field. In addition, the DEX-P99RS employs four powerful 24-bit digital/analog converters, to individually manage the High, mid-range (Mid), mid-base (Low) and Subwoofer (SW) channels. This translates to an incredible dynamic range and signal/noise ratio of 120 decibels, two times of other conventional models.  

 

 

Integrated with a high-voltage left/right independent volume circuit that reduces noise effect, the DEX-P99RS offers unprecedented sound quality and performance. Furthermore, the CD mechanism is manufactured with high-grade vibration suppression material to immobilize the entire chassis resulting in precise signal reading and exquisite sound quality.

   
 
 
Optimum Tuning
 
 
 

Audio adjustment reaches unparalleled levels thanks to the inclusion of the new 4-way digital cross-over network. Previously it enabled you to alter settings separately, including time alignment between speakers, left and right channels, as well as for the tweeters High, Mid, Low and SW range. However now, the new high-powered DSP chipset, originally developed for multi-channel sound systems and unique to the DEX-P99RS, ensures that the entire frequency band in the 20Hz to 20kHz range is available in each adjustment band to intricately refine audio to your exact wishes and allowing any system configuration.  

 

In addition the built-in auto time alignment and equalizer automatically adjusts to suit the cars acoustic characteristics. With the left/right independent 4-way digital crossover network and 31 band digital equalizer that splits 1/3 of every octave step in the audio frequency bandwidth to 31 bands, music aficionados will be able to experience explicit and accurate tonality, akin to a live concert!  

   
 
 
Extensive Media Format and Design
 
 
 

 

The DEX-P99RS also offers versatile connections. A wide range of audio players can be connected via the direct USB (cable supplied) input including WMA, MP3, AAC and WAV and other media formats. With a USB input port and 1.5m USB extension cable, signals are transmitted through a digital/analog converter in the same manner as a CD ensuring every playback is of high-quality. With iPods, music can be controlled from the head unit or the portable player itself (optional cable required). Pioneer's Advanced Sound Retriever (ASR) puts the harmonics lost during compression back into your music, returning its depth and revitalising its quality.

 

The DEX-P99RS is not just brilliant in its capabilities but also sleek in its outlook. Its visual cues, comprising a high-quality plexiglass and black brushed aluminum finish with two large dials at either end, and a three-line crisp OEL display, exude timeless elegance. Looks are twinned to performance with the intuitive rotary commander enabling users to simply enjoy exquisite audio created by the latest innovations in car audio. The rotary commander remote control can be steering wheel mounted, while you can also choose from five preset colours to customise button illumination to match the DEX-P99RS's fascia plate with your car's interior.
