PIONEERA10Black Stereo Amplifier

  • The quiet signal that comes off the needle of a record player needs the extra boost of a phono stage to be heard. This unit has one built-in, though an external unit may well offer better quality.
  • This unit has two sets of speaker outputs, so you can power two pairs of speakers. These could be in two different rooms or at either end of a large room, for example.

With a wide range of features and great sound, the Pioneer A10 represents superb value for money.


By using a MOSFET -type design, the Pioneer A10's provides stable, balanced and dynamic amplification. You'll hear a crisp, powerful sound that avoids distortion of sound right up to high volume levels. In addition to this, a symmetrical power amp design ensures perfect balance between the left and right channels. Detail and lack of distortion are further enhanced by the Clean Ground construction and isolated power supply. In short, when it comes to sound quality, the Pioneer is amongst the most detailed and dynamic in its class with clarity and precision that are rare at this price.


Matching the broad spread of sound is an equally wide range of features. In addition to four line level inputs and a recording loop, you'll also find an MM phono stage for connecting up a turntable. Two pairs of speaker terminals are included for adding speakers in another room, as is a headphone socket. A source direct switch bypasses the tone controls for even more detail, or you can make use of the loudness switch at low volumes to boost the dynamic range.

Ideal as a first amplifier or the basis of a second system, the Pioneer A-10-K is everything a starter amp should be.

Rated 4.7 out of 5áby 9 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5áby Pioneer A10 amplifier - ú120 The amplifier was linked to a Marantz tt42 turntable and Mordaunt Short M10 speakers (ú70). In my opinion this set-up brought out the detail of the Beatles' Magical Mystery Tour album (stereo version on new 180g vinyl). The amplifier has the feel of quality and the sound reproduction to match. 10 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby A lot of Amp for the money I actually went to get the DENON PMA520AE which was the same price, but they didnt have any in stock, so I opted for this Pioneer A10 instead. Im glad I did. The sound quality is superb. Loud, punchy and crystal clear, even when flat. The Loudness switch gives a full rounded sound on my Mission M33i's, even with the volume dial at 30%. The Amp is very very black! , so black its hard to see what setting the dials are on, but that said the build quality is great, made with quality materials, and the amp is reassuringly heavy. It would have been nice to have an IR remote, but at this price you cant really complain. The staff at the Leeds branch were friendly and knowledgable, without being pushy. I even got my ú5.50 parking paid too. Result! 03 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby High value, excellent output quality. Having owned this amp for just a couple of days, I can safely say I am extremely satisfied. Phono input, dual speaker outputs, balanced sound signature... hard to think of much more you could ask for from a ú120 amp. Pioneer have outdone themselves, and as per usual RicherSounds have shown why they are still the big name in sound in the UK despite every other industry being demolished by online sales. I'm not using phenomenal monitors (Cambridge Audio SX50) but they are exercised nicely by the A10 amp, and I look forward to upgrading, and adding a sub into the mix. Recommend highly. 01 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Pioneer A10 Purchased my amp today, fantastic amp for my flat which is a similar size to the demo room, I'm using it with a Project elemental turntable and Wharfdale Diamond 9 speakers, they are a fantastic combination together for the money I can believe the bangs you get for your bucks with this amp. 30 October 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby Top amp Relly good amp well made and sold sound when running my TANNOYMERCURY V1 that got same time 30 July 2014
Rated 4 out of 5áby As described,compliments my new Pioneer turntable Good sound even at low volumes ,ticks all the boxes, looking forward to good listening, will now connect up my Pioneer CD Recorder to complete the package. 02 March 2014
Rated 4 out of 5áby Excellent, clean looking amp! This amp is very good value for money and setup was easy - within minutes we had speakers hooked up to it and tunes playing. Would definitely recommend and look forward to making use of the MM connector in the future. 26 February 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby Top Amp I've replaced the amp in an old Sony music centre with this amp and I'm really pleased with the quality of the output. I wanted an amp with a phono stage so this is ideal, good value, looks good and sounds really good without adjusting the tone controlls. Loudnees function is great for low volumes. 11 October 2013
