Pioneer N-30

CNET
18 March 2012
  • Summary: As the first "affordable" hi-fi streamer, the Pioneer N-30 puts on a good performance, but the controls could be so much easier to use.
  • Pros: The Pioneer Elite N-30 Network Audio Player certainly looks like a $500 item, with a solid build and a stylish remote. Its sound quality is a clear head and shoulders above entry-level media players. iPhone control is free.
  • Cons: The 2.5-inch screen is too small and the flawed smartphone app doesn't do much to make up for it. Adding wireless adds a hefty $150 to the bill. You may find that the onboard sound of your receiver is every bit as good as the Pioneer's analog outs.
