Pioneer was founded in 1938 in Tokyo, Japan by Nozomu Matsumoto – a man with a passion for music that he hoped to share with the world through high quality audio speakers. That passion began with a small operation to repair and manufacture speakers in Matsumoto’s garage. It has since grown to international stature as a manufacturer of audio and video products for use at home, in the car and in business environments. Some of the company’s well-known innovations include:
- Consumer laser disc players for the home (1979)
- Car CD players (1984)
- GPS car navigation systems (1990)
- DVD-Video players (1996)
- High definition plasma display (1997)
- Organic Electro-luminscent (OEL) displays (1997)
- AppRadio® In-Dash Receiver (2010)
- Apple® CarPlay™ functionality in NEX and AppRadio® receivers (2014)
With a commitment to their corporate message of “Sound, Vision and Soul”, they are passionate about creating an unbeatable entertainment experience.
- Sound not only indicates Pioneer’s very origin – the audio field – but also refers to their aim to resonate with customers.
- Vision refers to the video business in which Pioneer maintains a leadership position with Blu-ray Disc technology and next generation plasma displays at the core. It also suggests the company’s clear commitment to the future and innovation.
- Soul emphasizes Pioneer’s determination to raise entertainment to the level of pure emotion. Pioneer truly believes in the power of sound and vision to ‘move the heart and touch the soul.
Pioneer manufactures a diverse range of in-dash radios, from basic CD and DVD players to the technology centric AppRadio® and NEX multimedia units. There are more than 50 receivers from which to choose, which means there’s a Pioneer in-dash radio for you.
One of Pioneer’s latest technology platforms is their Networked Entertainment Experience (NEX) in-dash DVD and navigation-enabled radios. They connect with your multimedia devices such as USB, SD cards, Bluetooth devices, iPhone® and Android™-based phones. There are over 30 apps that run on NEX in-dash units so this is much more than a car radio; it’s an in-dash multimedia center. The addition of Apple CarPlay functionality means you can connect an iPhone and access maps, text messages, phone calls and more entirely through Siri voice commands. NEX is truly an incredible and diverse platform.
Pioneer also manufactures marine audio remote controls (that connect to their in-dash receivers), protective water-resistant covers for receivers and marine-grade coaxial speakers that belt out the tunes. These enable Pioneer’s high-value entertainment products to be enjoyed in the marine environment without worry of exposure to moisture and open air.

Pioneer also has a full line of high-quality replacement speakers in every size that fit perfectly in nearly every car on the road. The company is the largest speaker manufacturer in the world. Pioneer also builds high-fidelity component separates that use advanced composite materials for incredible sound.
