Of course, you are correct - Having moved away from a bootful of Audio Control Gadgets it would be interesting to imagine and see just what a full blown DSP could do over and beyond where the P99RS is at - and I agree, when max'ed out, this headunit can do some quite amazing things.. for me, it has given me a way better system than my previous EMMA competing system and done so with a lot less equipment..

Have to say, with the help of other members in this page, that I have finally stopped tweaking and now just listen to my music. It has taken like forever to get to this point and I am very happy with the final setup - but out of curiosity, has anyone added any additional DSP or other electronics into the chain to try and further tweak their system or do we all just get to a point where the DEX P99RS is just left alone cos you are all happy..?

I had P99 for few months, but I can say it is one of the best single din HU on earth.
The only lack of this unit is the usb music management. No Flac, and above all only 500 of total folders/subfolder limit, even your HDD or pen drive is within maximum allowed size (250GB).

Adding an additional DSP will do very little, especially for most people. The P99 has just about everything you could possibly need to win contests (if that was the goal). It does lack a couple of things like parametric EQ and EQ per channel, instead of per side. Parametric could potentially be helpful, but the graphic EQ is powerful enough that you certainly don't need it. Having independent EQ per channel instead of per side would be slightly better, but not significant. It would really only be an advantage around the crossover points, but the combination of crossover points, slopes, and the EQ you do have is plenty.

I think the only time extra processing would be advantageous is for highly skilled expert tuners who can very comfortably take full advantage of the P99's processing and need a couple more tools, for the vast majority of people, adding a processor will complicate things and would almost certainly cause more trouble than it would fix.

So my five year old P99 taunts me with a blinking red light and no desire to power up, tried changing fuse in fuse box, tried reset and finally took it to a shop where they declared it dead. Contacted Pioneer said I could send to a shop in syracuse but wanted to see if anyone had any recommendations or thoughts about the best thing to do with the ol P99?

My local shop installed a customer-provided P99 earlier this summer which had noise issues. They sent it to the Syracuse shop and it came back perfect.

Default Re: DEX-P99RS Ongoing Review and Discoveries

Was just dropping in on this thread and wanted to add my praise for the P99.
Its basically a full DSP inside a high quality single DIN deck. In this day and age of screens I still like the understated, traditional look in the right vehicle.

I'm building a truck right now that will use an external DSP and I'm really going to miss having full control at any time with a wireless remote no less. (AFAIK the only DSP's that have a full remote potential are the Alpine and ARC PS-8, and even in that case it is a larger wired unit).

However, the action of the deck is also "traditional". You need bulky wired outboard modules to add USB or satellite or bluetooth. (and I'm not sure how easy these are to find anymore). Note you need a box for each one of those functions !

Also, trying to browse files especially on USB is difficult with the small display. In the truck I have an OEM screen and it is pretty nice to browse and have favorites and stuff.

But that's all convenience - the deck always sounds and performs amazing and once you get the hang of the "gestures", quite quick and easy to tune, and its especially great to just lay back and audition music while watching the deck and tuning with the little wireless remote in your hand hanging down naturally (as opposed to having to reach and stretch over to the deck to change settings or having a big hot and bright laptop sitting on top of you.

Default New Question - Re: DEX-P99RS

Is it possible to take the Digital output from a Fiio X7 and plug it directly into the back of my Pioneer CD Multi-Player XDV P9 which is then plugged into the back of my P99 ?

Cheers..

UPDATE:
please ignore my question - just pull things apart and to one side for a closer inspection - the XDV P9 does not have Optical input it is Optical output so that dream is gonna stop right there... as least from the point of view of having a digital to digital game plan...

Anyone seen the little "car" symbol on the display right above the voltage digits?

Know what it is? Never seen it before, something to do with the FM radio? I reconnected my antenna and it been flashing on and off like crazy ever since. Can't find anything in the manual.

I inadvertently ended up using the Helix Pro MKii with the P99 because I had the Sony GS9 in the car before - what I do like is using just one RCA cable to the DSP instead of 4 - also I am curious the Helix has 32bit dacs etc and higher bit DSP chips etc...

The sound will be slightly different with the DSP as a posed to without the DSP

Would the Helix/P99 combo sound better than just a stand alone P99?

Also the MKii has a higher voltage (8v) as a posed to the P99 5v

I do however find that system sounds louder than when I had the Sony in it due to the Sony having 4v?

What’s your take...

Has anyone tried using an iPod emulator on Android to integrate with the P99 USB? I'm trying PodEMU without much luck, but it would be cool to get it to work.

You can't upgrade the software on the p99rs, try and see if your unit plays tracks through the itunes app. If it does then it's an app related issue and you might need to use a bluetooth adapter to make it work.

If it doesn't play through itunes, try connecting the iphone cable directly in the back of the unit's usb port.
