The Pros:Amplifier setup offers a number of options for various configurations - very flexible. AM/FM stereo gets great reception, free of static. Installation is very easy, only intermediate comfort with a soldering iron required.
The Cons:Advertised compressed audio quality improvement is only barely noticeable. No station preset buttons, have to scroll through them. Buttons are poorly labelled, takes awhile to learn to use the unit.
The Pioneer DEH-P4100UB is a well-priced, car-audio CD receiver with a 200w (peak) and 4-channel MOSFET amplifier. The fifth of seven Pioneer DEH receivers, the Pioneer DEH-P4100UB is an upgrade from the Pioneer DEH-P3100UB in that it features Pioneer’s revolutionary Organic Electroluminescent (OEL) display with 16-character text.

In addition, the DEH-P4100UB offers three (versus two) RCA Hi-Volt pre-outs for front, rear, and sub connections, not to mention a two-way crossover with separate high and low pass settings. The DEH-P4100UB also boasts a CD player that plays CDs, CD-Rs, CD-RWs, and discs loaded with MP3, WMA, and iTunes AAC music files. Plus, the DEH-P4100UB features an easy-to-use 7-way rotary commander control to quickly search through songs, Bluetooth compatibility so that users willing to invest in a CD-BTB200 Bluetooth adapter can connect their cellular phones directly to the unit, and an advanced sound receiver that more accurately plays back compressed MP3/WMA/AAC music files. Lastly, the DEH-P4100UB boasts a traditional AM/FM tuner with SuperTuner III technology for reduced distortion, a front auxiliary port and USB port for connecting various portable devices, an included iPod connection cable, a graphic 7-band (versus 3-band) equalizer, and a wireless remote control. The Pioneer DEH-P4100UB retails for a more expensive $170.00 (versus $150.00) and comes with a 1 year limited warranty.
