Very nice item

  • Summary: First of all received in 8 days from Japan... very fast shipping. Sold by Japanese poppin culture. My Pioneer PD-10 is hooked up using the analog output to a Pioneer SA-9100 Amp from 1974, feeding a pair of JBL L-100 Speakers. I played Pink Floyd's " Dark Side of the Moon" a SACD disc and the sound from that legendary album was simply amazing. It has great dynamic range and was crystal clear.

This is somthing it think i can hold off on buying

  • Summary: Im not going to say its a bad product . Pioneer makes supberb sound eqipment . however I think that youre technology is only as good as its mastering . Im verry happy with the way L.Ps wher mastered durring the 70s to mid 80s and maybe I sound old school , but the loudness war and all the compressors we use in todays masting is distroing the natral , and dynamic sound of music . Vinyl has made a comeback over this issue .

  • Summary: It sounds crystal clear... just like on the edge of Japanese Katana. It makes uncomfortable sounds. but the real is always uneasy and uncomfortable. I had to change my speaker system.

  • Summary: it is slow to start, isn't networked in any way and only plays cds but the quality of the sound is good and it's certainly worth considering for the price range

Good, but it's not a Marantz!

Luggsy, Amazon

  • Summary: USB port works well and both USB and CD playback sound good, very clear - perhaps a little too crisp and bright on occasion. Biggest fault is reading the cd's. What on earth is the problem, you put a cd in and it thinks about it, loads it, reads it and crikey knows what else and then eventually what seems an age later it plays it. My old Marantz CD52 is almost playing the disk before the drawer is shut.

The cd player itself isn't bad sounds and it is even SACD which is great

  • Summary: Avoid! Avoid! Avoid! The cd player itself isn't bad sounds and it is even SACD which is great, BUT the power imput is so weak that it killds the whole thing twice in 4 months! First replaced it once, received a new one, thought there was just a fault with the particular one I had, the new one broke just one month after using it. What a joke. You don't expect to pay almost 200 quid for something that works a month.

Excellent

Steven Whelan, Amazon

  • Summary: Having used for a few weeks now with no problems. Bought to listen to a CD collection that has not been listened to in possibly 15 years. This was an after thought after buying a new Turntable, Amplifier, and speakers to listen to Vinyl collected during the 80's. So why not something for the CD's. While buying the amplifier and speakers they were demoed through CD players in the shops.

Great, when it works ... but a bit slow

Leon27, Richer Sounds

  • Summary: This is a frustrating SACD player for many reasons. Sound-wise, i have no complaints, a wonderful quality to it. I like to listen to a lot of acoustic and orchestral music and this deals with that style and sound perfectly. And on SACD, it is another world of quality alltogether. The unit is slow at responding to requests like play, and eject, which is frustrating at times, but tolerable. There is no OFF function, only standby.
  • Pros: great sound
  • Cons: slow to react , no off as such , it only lasted 16 months
