Released April, 2009
The Pros:Clean and powerful output, makes the most of OEM speakers. IPod connection is easy to hook up and work with. Two-way crossover helps a lot with setting up aftermarket speakers.
The Cons:Having the AUX input in the back is a bit awkward for casual connections of portable devices. Hard to read the display during the day even if you're not in direct sunlight. Controls are over-simplified, takes some getting used to.
The DEH-P590IB is one of Pioneer's upper-middle level car CD receivers. The feature highlighted by Pioneer in promotion is the "iBus" iPod Direct Control technology, which allows you to play, control and charge your iPod by plugging it into the DEH-P590IB.

The pure blue OEL (Organix Eletro-Luminescent) display provides vibrant color and animated graphics (though not with the two screensaver movies of the closely related DEH-P580MP). In terms of Pioneer's car CD receiver offerings, the 7-way rotary commander, which allows you to access and control the functions of the receiver as well as scroll through the files on your MP3/WMA/AAC discs, is a unique feature. When you play MP3/WMA/AAC discs, the Bit Media eXpander (BMX) feature will make them sound like CD quality. Like most of Pioneer's car CD receivers, the addition of Pioneer's digital satellite tuner will allow you to access Sirius satellite radio as well as XM radio.
