Black 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.

This page is intended to demonstrate the incredible value of our 6 Year Supercare. Under recent legislation, we are obliged to point out that you obviously do not need to purchase an extended warranty at the same time you purchase your electrical goods and are entitled to shop around. We have been encouraging our customers to do just that for years because, not only are our prices significantly cheaper than our competitors, but just look at what else we include:

Free loan machine (only if taken back to store)
Should you encounter a problem, just ask and you'll be provided with a unit to ensure you're not without music whilst your equipment is being fixed.

Like for like machine if unit is unrepairable
If, for any reason, we are unable to repair your unit, we'll replace it. Naturally, models do change so, while we can't guarantee that it will be the same model, we do guarantee that it will have equivalent specifications.

Free routine service / Maintenance checks
have your unit serviced as often as you wish, free of charge, during the 6 year period. (Normally excluded from extended guarantees).

45 day cooling off period
If you're not happy with our 6 Year Supercare package just ask for a full refund - no questions asked. After 45 days, providing no claim has been made, you can also terminate the agreement and receive a pro-rata refund.

If you use the policy in the 6 years, you'll have saved yourself tens and perhaps hundreds of pounds. If you don't use it...IT WON'T COST YOU A THING!*

* Simply return your unused Supercare policy within one month of the expiration date, and we'll refund the price of your warranty.

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

Clean stable power

By using a MOSFET-type design, the Pioneer A10's provides stable, balanced and dynamic amplification. You get a crisp, powerful sound that avoids distortion right up to high volume levels. Its symmetrical power amp design ensures perfect balance between the left and right channels, while detail is further enhanced by the Clean Ground construction and isolated power supply.

Broad range of features
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 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 more detail, while a loudness switch boosts the dynamic range at low volumes.

When it comes to sound quality, the Pioneer is amongst the most detailed and dynamic in its class. 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 4.6 out of 5 by 21 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very Good Value Amplifier I'm using this amp with my computer does a very good job. Has a very useful built in phono stage as well plus all the normal inputs. 23 September 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Faulty out of the box Bought new, no headphone output. Richer Sounds tested it in in the shop next day, full refund. No more in stock so went elsewhere and bought a different amp. 19 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Solid workhorse My previous Pioneer amp lasted thirty years albeit demoted to the summerhouse for long summer evenings (sic) listening to jazz. This replacement has proved worthy and excellent value for driving two pairs of speakers.p 19 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to use Streamlined & simple. A perfect replacement for my old Pioneer which lasted for years. No longer need a splitter box as it supports 4 speakers. 30 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good, simple and excellent sound quality Use this with a set of Tannoy Mercury V1 speakers and a Marantz T5005 turntable. The setup is affordable but has a great sound quality. The pioneer A10 is a solid construction, has just enough controls to really get the sound you want regardless of the music genre. Bass and Treble adjustments work great. Also got a 3.5mm to RCA so that I can play my iPhone at hifi quality, which is also great. 20 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pioneer A10 Amplifier Just bought this amp and only had it a week. I am absolutely delighted with it. I needed an amp to use in my study connected to AE Linear One speakers, cassette deck, CD player and FM tuner, and computer. Great value amp with a decent spec. Looks good too. Certainly exceeded expectations. 09 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 Looks Good, Sounds Better! I bought this to work alongside a Pioneer SACD Player and SONY Turntable. It looks as good as high end Pioneer products, it gives a very clean balanced sound - high notes are very clear, the bass is very tight, it doesn't "boom", it sounds very natural, especially when using the "source direct" function, It is very easy to set up and just as easy to use 30 June 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Cannot get better spec for this price range... Cannot get better spec for this price range... The built in phono stage for my turntable, coupled with the level of spec is unbeliavable, highly reccomend this to anyone looking to enter into the world of turntables etc. 22 May 2015
