Pioneer's flagship CD receiver does not disappoint
5 March 2014
Summary: The Pioneer DEH-X9500BHS packs in a remarkably wide range of audio sources for a single-DIN receiver, including some rudimentary app integration.
Pros: The Pioneer DEH-X9500BHS CD receiver features standard CD/AM/FM sources, and also decodes HD Radio out of the box. Smartphone users gain access to Bluetooth calling and audio, USB/iPod connections, and Pandora Internet radio.
Cons: The App Mode isn't well-documented and many of the compatible apps didn't work during our testing. Mixtrax mode is a bit obnoxious.
