There is no charge for the help of this personal shopper for anyone with a disability.

Pioneer's NEX or Networked Entertainment eXperience line of receivers features an innovative and powerful new user interface that is responsive and highly customizable. The NEX models are designed especially for today's smartphone driven lifestyle.

Availability of non-Pioneer content and services, including apps and connectivity, may change without notice due to changes in operating systems, firmware or app versions; changes to, restrictions on or discontinuation of the service or service plans; non-Pioneer hardware changes; or other events.

Modular Solutions

Pioneer's Modular Solutions receivers are designed for applications, often newer vehicles, with limited depth behind the dash that prohibits the installation of a traditional 1DIN or 2DIN receiver. This installation flexibility is achieved by physically separating the LCD touchscreen display from the sub-chassis that contains the CPU, control system, terrestrial radio tuner, amplifier and input/output connections. This allows the sub-chassis to be mounted in a different location* or different horizontal/vertical orientation within the vehicle.

* Sub-chassis remote installation may require either the RD-RGB150A or CD-RGB150E accessory, sold separately.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Electronics can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new electronics should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.
