Pioneer DVH-P530 car DVD receiver with built in amplifier
Pioneer Japan has announced the DVH-P530 a 1DIN sized car DVD receiver which has a USB port so you can directly play music from your Flash drive, MP3 player and even the iPod. Coming to optical media it can playback movies from DVD-R/RW along with DivX media and MP3 tracks from CD-R/RW discs. It can also playback MP3 files from DVD media which pretty much makes the CD changer obsolete as with 4.7GB of songs you wont be changing the disc before long. The DVH-P530 has a built in MOS FET amplifier delivering an output of 50W x 4ch so you can say goodbye to the underseat amplifier as well. The unit goes on sale later this month in Japan for 47,000 Yen ($ 470).
