Pioneer takes audio to new high !

g8ina, Ciao
15 May 2004
  • Excerpt: The new high, is of course : DVD Audio. This was the over riding factor when I was looking to upgrade from my older Marantz CD player and Sony DVD player. I wanted a unit capable of playing standard audio CDs, plus the gamut of DVD media, and this puppy has played everything I've ever thrown at it.
  • Pros: Plays DVD Audio, & everything else, even multiregion  !
  • Cons: Not quite as hot on audio CDs .

Naminanu, Ciao
1 August 2003
  • Excerpt: Wer kennt das nicht, diese Probleme bei der Suche nach dem Player für audiophile Tonträger. SACD und DVD-Audio machen halt viele neugierig, die hohen Auflösungen und den Mehrkanalton kann man ja beim Hi-Fi Händler antesten und kommt dann nicht mehr davon los.
  • Pros: Preisleistungsstarker DVD / SACD Allrounder
  • Cons: Das Einlesen dauert, S - VideoCDs sind problematisch
