The Pioneer DEH-X2800UI CD receiver features Pioneer's MIXTRAX technology, USB direct control of an iPod or iPhone, USB access to music on Android devices (4.0 or later), and Pandora for iPhone. Pioneer increased accessibility of control functionality, shifting the master control knob to the left side and illuminating the presets and track up and track down buttons. The receiver also includes the USB Auto Switch feature so when the phone is connected via USB the listener has the option to choose whether the receiver uses the phone as a source, or just charges the device.
MIXTRAX is an innovative Pioneer technology that creates a nonstop mix of your music library complete with a range of DJ-inspired effects. Drawing from Pioneers rich DJ heritage and our passion for music, MIXTRAX delivers a unique DJ infused listening experience to those in the car. MIXTRAX takes the music from an iPhone, iPod, USB device, or certain Android devices and plays it back with added transitions and effects, creating a virtual DJ inside the Pioneer receiver.
