The Pioneer DEH-12E is a low-end CD receiver/radio meant for cars. It comes equipped with Pioneer's proprietary Supertuner IIID technology, allowing it to combine digital and analog radio signals for a boosted and more consistent reception across all bands. Its 50W MOSFET amplification circuit is smaller and more efficient than typical power supplies, reducing distortion and eliminating any on/off switching noise. A built-in AUX port placed right on the front panel allows the DEH-12E to interface with any MP3 or iPod device. Of course, the DEH-12E also plays CD as well as CD-Rs and RWs.

The DEH-12E's Supertuner IIID technology combines digital and analog tuner technologies boost performance and signal strength, even in areas with poor reception; Supertuner IIID also reduces the multi-path noise effect that can occur around tall buildings, which occurs when signals bounce off of nearby buildings. The DEH-12E's MOSFET amplification circuit is not only more efficient, providing a cleaner audio signal, its higher power intake can handle higher volumes while still sounding clean. The DEH-12E's built-in AUX port supports iPods and mp3 players in addition to its traditional CD and CD-R and RW support for an expanded and more convenient listening experience.
