"Absolutely the best car audio receiver available!"
24 April 2012
Pros: This unit plays every applicable media perfectly. The look of the unit is very elegant in person. Trust me when I tell you that the photos online do NOT do it justice. The customizable display is a plus. The array of tuning abilities is awesome!
Cons: The volume and tuning knobs are slightly on the small side. I understand this was done for appearance but it can be a little tricky for medium to large hands. The features can be a bit overwhelming at first but the interface is easy to master!
Pros: Inside, 16-bit digital CD data is directly transferred by 4 x 24-bit D/A converters, with minimum distortion and natural sound expression intact. It is the first Pioneer headunit to have such a powerful master clock device to avoid jitter.
Cons: Cant think of any. Available on http://www.caraudiosystemz.co.uk Further inforamtion on http://www.pioneer.eu/uk/products/25/index.html
Summary: I replaced my Clarion DRZ9255 CD head unit with the Pioneer P99RS and there is no comparison. The Pioneer deck is the hand down winner. It is the most natural CD player I have ever owned. It is so accurate and smooth, I am still in shock. It even beats the McIntosh MX406 which I thought was better than the Clarion DRZ92555. If you have a high-end audiophile system, buy this product. You are not be disappointed.
