The more the merrier and preferable something durable,but the most important factor being that it is tried and tested since I don't intend to order a hard drive and then find out that it's not working with the head unit.
I've tried three hard drives, one 120GB SSD and two different 500GB drives - all of them worked. However, I wouldn't recommend it. Sorting music properly is near impossible and access is slow. I think all drives will work more or less as long as you format them with FAT32 filesystem and have an external Power source.

iPod/iPhone storage is sooo much better. If you store in high quality mp3s you can fit 5000-6000 songs on a 64GB unit.

Edit: You might need to partition the disk if its' above 250GB (or so) for some reason, I remember I had to do this, otherwise you might get some fault code "no audio...".

Guys I am having a problem with Pioneer HUs in general - I have a BNIB P90RS, P99RS, RS-D7Xii

When using the AUX function on all of these radios - the right channel is about 75% lower in output compared to the left.. Using IPBUS to RCA cable - CD-RB20 - has anyone experienced this?

I suspect a design fault on the board - how can all 3 HU measure exactly the same on both channels?

Has anyone got the service manuals for these radios?

I'm using an adaptor myself and it works fine , there's probably an issue with your adaptor cable or your auxiliary cable.

Ok... So I used a scope to measure the left and right signal coming into to HU and what is coming out - IPBUS in and IPBUS out to DSP both the signal coming in and out the IPBUS measure the same on the board.

But.... If you measure on the RCA plugs (both HU and DSP) the right channel is significantly less than the left.. So somewhere on the board going to the RCA plugs the signal is lost..

So it's not the cable as it measures equal both sides, it's not anything to do with the IPBUS coming in and out the radio (ODR and P90 to RS-P70x) it's not the DSP as its doing the same on the P99 and P90 HU RCA outputs it's not the DSP as I tested the DEQ P90 as well..

Considering one HU (P90) is brand new and the P99 is about 2 years old and the ODR is about 7 years old - they all measure EXACTLY the same...

Before with the P90 combo the stage would shift when selecting CD and AUX - using the CD-RB20 (original part - also new) the cable is King Cobra RCA cables tried and tested multiple times before..

Default Re: DEX-P99RS Ongoing Review and Discoveries

posting a quick update- the DEX P99 is still rocking on and sounding better than ever!

System was sounding a little flat so I did a quick RTA using my laptop and True RTA software.
Whoa! The lower treble region was down in the mix some 15 db! Apparantly the result of lots of on-the-fly daily EQ adjusting.
I lowered the midbass driver levels and adjusted the EQ so that I was running an "Andy Curve" basically +10 db 20 to 60hz, taper down to flat at 160Hz, then flat until 2Khz with a slight taper (~ 1-db per octave) down from 2K.

MUCH BETTER! Rule of thumb- not a bad idea to check your sound with RTA every once in a while.

Another tweak- the image was shifted slightly "left" and would not center with balance or level adjustments.
So I adjusted the time alignment by adding distance to all of the right channels by equal amounts- basically five up clicks on each driver until the sound was centered. It only took one adjustment and everything was fine.

Since the front right drivers were all phase / time aligned to each other, adjusting all of them together shifted the center image and maintained their relative phase to each other.

Sounds AWESOME!

Dangerous to have a "on-the-fly" EQ available sometimes...

Picked one of these up to finally replace my OEM source unit (after 5.5 years running it and swearing I'd not replace it). I use Zapco DC reference amps and am using this to further fine tune with the graphic EQ. Holy crap, I thought my center image was focused before - now it's pin-point accurate across the spectrum.

I had a really strange thing happen with my P99 last week. I'm sitting at a stoplight on my way home from work and the P99 screen goes dark but music keeps playing. It wouldn't respond to any buttons and jiggling the faceplate didn't do anything. When I got home I shut off my truck, removed the key, then put the key back to ACC and the P99 came back on with no issues as if the screen shutdown/lockout never happened. Anyone seen this happen before? It hasn't happened since, super weird...

This happens when the connector of the faceplate or the hu gets carbon deposit. Clean connectors on both the faceplate n hu with a mild solvent. This should fix it

I have a quick question that someone might be willing to give me a quick answer if not....I guess you can just tell me to read the entire thread

I just bought a very, very cool FiiO X5ii and I want to hook it up to the P99. Not as a main source, just every once in a while.....for fun.

I thought I could turn on Aux1 in the menu, hook a stereo plug (not sure of the mm) from the headphone out to the aux jack on the edge of the faceplate when it is open......Fail. My stereo plug is too big (I can hear a, 'that's what she said!' right there).

What size is this plug in on the faceplate.....is there an easy adaptor to step from the stereo plug down to this size. OR........the Aux 2 on the back of the 99......I believe there is an adaptor for that that might take stereo RCA? My X5ii can send coax out.....is there any options for that?

I know I just need to research this, but my curiosity is higher than my available time at the moment. If someone has already crunched this problem - that would be awesome to get a shortcut

You can easily get a 3.5mm to 2.5mm converter. As p99 has a odd 2.5mm size

Something like this

Sadly no coax for p99

Ok, so I've been tuning for a while and I was just about to hit the sweet spot, when I thought about turning the Auto EQ "on" ... BAN! the Sweet spot came alive!

I've done this before and most of the time doesn't sounds right, either boomy and/or harsh, wonder why when my tuning was getting really good the Auto EQ gave me that extra step and made the stage rich that sweet spot.

Anybody has an idea if the Auto EQ is a default setting in the P99 or it's really driven by the mic and the Auto Tune?

Cheers! to all P99 owners and how fortunate we are.

Anybody has an idea if the Auto EQ is a default setting in the P99 or it's really driven by the mic and the Auto Tune?

Cheers! to all P99 owners and how fortunate we are.

Yes, Auto EQ is performed via test tones and the mic to flatten the frequency response in the installed vehicle. No default EQ settings used, it requires actual measurements to make the final adjustments that make it sound so good

It's driven by mic reading into Pioneer's algorithm. Once you run auto-EQ on the 99RS, I'll bet you can't see the "auto-EQ" trims, like the 80PRS, which is a shame.
