Overview Details Accessories

Amazing performance at a reasonable price

Pioneer's MVH-X390BT digital media receiver does a lot without costing a lot. You can crank up some music from your iPhone® or iPod®, select Android™ phones, or a USB thumb drive, or tune into Spotify® to enjoy your favourite playlists. You also get built-in Bluetooth®, Siri Eyes Free functionality, and a powerful built-in amplifier. Plus, you can still check out the news or a ballgame on good old-fashioned AM/FM radio. You get all this in a sleek receiver that's easy to read and easy to use.

Better Bluetooth™ is built-in

The MVH-X390BT features built-in Bluetooth, so you can enjoy hands-free calling and wireless music streaming on the road. The included external microphone picks up your conversation, and you'll hear your caller through your vehicle's speakers. Wide Band Speech Technology ensures clear and easy-to-understand conversations.

The dual phone connection lets you pair two phones, while “Guest Mode" allows you to add or replace a mobile device with ease. That's a great feature for a family car with multiple drivers, or one driver with multiple devices.


With iPod and iPhone Direct Control, you can plug your device into this Pioneer's USB port and make music selections through the receiver. As a bonus, the 1.5-amp USB quick charger will keep your device powered up while you're rockin' down the highway. If you own a compatible iPhone, you can take advantage of Siri® Eyes Free functionality with a touch of a button, accessing a variety of functions with your voice commands.

Android phones welcome

All Android users can control their music via Bluetooth or you can plug into the front panel USB port and play music while getting a charge. If you just purchased a new Android phone, you'll be glad to hear that the MVH-X390BT supports Android Open Accessory 2.0 (AOA 2.0), so you can use your USB port to stream music from Android 4.1 (or later) devices. You can also plug in a thumb drive and enjoy MP3, WMA, AAC, and WAV files, or use the aux input to connect an MP3 player or portable satellite radio.

If you're using an iPod, iPhone, or USB device, Pioneer's integrated MIXTRAX virtual DJ technology can turn your music collection into a non-stop playlist, complete with mix effects. And if you're a Pandora or Spotify fan, you can use your iPhone or Android phone to create unique stations that play nothing but your favourite kinds of music.

Your phone as a remote

Pioneer's new Advanced Remote Control feature allows you or your front-seat passenger to use a smartphone to control the music and other basic features on your Pioneer. 

Big power, compact chassis

With no CD player to worry about, Pioneer's designers were able to fit lots of features into a compact chassis that will fit into a wide variety of dashboards. Pioneer's powerful amplifier gives you outstanding sound, while Advanced Sound Retriever (ASR) technology brings back the details lost when you compress music. A 5-band graphic equalizer lets you adjust the sound to suit your tastes, while two sets of RCA preamp outputs allow you to expand your system with amps and subs.

Want to keep your car's steering wheel audio controls?

In most cars, you'll need an adapter to retain those controls with this car stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and radio, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. You'll see the adapters that work with your vehicle when you add this receiver to your cart.

This digital media receiver will not play CDs. If you want to play CDs in your vehicle, we offer a wide selection of CD receivers.

Bluetooth note: Use of this receiver's Bluetooth features will depend upon your phone's Bluetooth capabilities. Learn more in our article explaining Bluetooth profiles.

iPod/smartphone note: If you're going to use your iPod or smartphone with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for compatibility information.

Reviewer: Anonymous person from Williamsport, PA  
Easy install, good sound and phone is clear on BT.

Reviewer: santiago from San Antonio, TX  
I really like this unit.  It functions really well and is easy to use.  There are some functions that I haven't figured out, but I haven't really been through the manual yet.  I like the way they laid the features out including the use of the volume knob to access menu functions.  The only complaint that I have is it is blue and my jeep is green!

I'm buying this one again! January-16-17

I'm going to buy a second one of these for my other car!  I replaced a stock 2003 Mercury Grand Marquis stereo with this unit.  I intended to upgrade my speakers, but after hearing the difference I've changed my mind.  Sound is much better.  The BT transmission is fantastic!  All of the music and contacts from my Android phone appear on the stereo face.  It's easy to receive phone calls, and I really like the handy short-cut buttons for favorite phone numbers.  The added external microphone sounds very clear on the other end of the phone.  With the wired remote plug (plus the Crutchfield recommended harness), it was EASY to keep my steering wheel remote controls.  Only drawback is the how the tuning works.  As best I can tell, you have to use a seek function.  If you kind-of know what number you're looking for, this can be a little obnoxious.  However once I program my favorites this shouldn't be much of a problem.  Install was enjoyable, thanks to step by step instructions from Crutchfield.  I'm buying from Crutchfield from now on!

I've had this radio for a couple of weeks and I love it. I replaced my factory radio with this one and I could hear a huge improvement imeaditly. I mostly use the Bluetooth connection and it works great, connects quickly and I think the sound quality is still amazing. The included Bluetooth microphone for hands free calling is a nice feature and I find myself wondering how I lived without it before. My only problem with it is the screen is hard to see in the sun. For what I need, this radio does it all very well and I highly recommend it.

Excellent Bluetooth, no more wires! January-16-17
Reviewer: Joe from Bethel, CT  
Needed a nice Bluetooth focused head unit to get some modern features in our older Jeep Grand Cherokee. This one fit the bill, installed it myself within an hour (after not having installed any car stereos in at least a decade) and fired right up. All the features I wanted, Bluetooth is quick to connect and seamless with my iPhone. Streams my Pandora, fades in and out for calls (plus the little blue phone light flashes to let you know which is nice) and has no issues switching between my wife and my iPhone depending on who has the car for the day. Plus with the EQ features the stock stereo sounds better than it ever has before. Great price, all the features I wanted and a quick and easy install made this a great purchase. No more wires!
