Pioneer Electronics announced a new line of AV DVD receivers, that now offer Spotify and support FLAC file playback.

Spotify is a built-in source in all but two of the new units, joining Pandora. Listeners can control Spotify from the radio via a Bluetooth for Android phones and Bluetooth/USB cable for the iPhone.

The line also now offers presets for Pandora stations.

Of the 9 new AVH-line radios, 5 have advanced Bluetooth and Siri Eyes Free for access to Apple’s Siri voice control with the press of a key.

The lineup, available in November, starts at $230 suggested retail price for the AVH-180DVD, followed by the AVH-280BT at $280, the AVH-X1800S at $280, AVH-X2800BS at $330 and the AVH-X3800BHS at $380.
