Pioneer DMH-WT8600NEX

At CES today, Pioneer Electronics is debuting new floating radios in its NEX line including a 10.1-inch model and two 9-inch versions.

The new Pioneer 2020 decks include:

  • DMH-WT8600NEX (10.1 inch) / DMH-WT7600NEX (9 inch): Models feature an all-new floating display configuration, allowing a large display to be installed using a universal 1-DIN chassis. The floating screen offers horizontal, vertical and tilt adjustability. The DMH-WT8600NEX has a suggested price of $1,200, and the DMH-WT7600NEX has a suggested price of $1,000.
  • DMH-WC6600NEX (9 inch): This model joins Pioneer’s lineup of modular solutions in-dash receivers introduced at CES 2019 that feature a modular design combining a large touchscreen display with a hideaway control unit that installers can tuck into separate compartments of the automobile. The DMH-WC6600NEX has a suggested price of $900.
  • DMH-W4660NEX / DMH-W4600NEX (6.8 inch): Traditional 2DIN chassis for universal application in most vehicles on the road in the U.S. Both units have a suggested price of $600.

All five models are SiriusXM ready and feature Hi-Res Audio playback capability, FLAC file playback, 13-band graphic equalizer, time alignment, 4V RCA preamplifier outputs (front/rear/subwoofer), and Bluetooth audio streaming and hands-free communication.  The decks offer a rear camera input, and an HDMI video input. All models except the DMH-W4600NEX have built-in HD Radio.

We’ll be reporting on more Pioneer news after visiting its booth today.

      1. I’d be pleasantly surprised – probably more like April or May.

        How will they address the fascia of double-din openings?

  1. Unless I missed it- I don’t see listed under the features that any of these have Apple Car Play or Android Auto.

    1. These are all-wireless radios: wireless CarPlay and Android Auto Wireless. Thank you for pointing out the omission. I’ve now added it to the story!

  2. Bashir is right. I told a few Wrangler JL owners about the new Metra 7″ dash kit announced at CES and the response was, “only 7?”. Consumers nowadays expect bigger than 7″, this is a good thing.

    1. Large, floating style displays have become the industry trend. I think this is a good thing as it will allow us to compete with factory offerings and breathe some fresh air into a declining category in our business.
