Far more than just a CD player, the Pioneer PD50 improves the sound of your other digital sources, including Apple iOS devices.

Audiophile sound quality

Boasting twin 192 kHz/32-bit DACs and hi-bit 32 audio signal processing, the Pioneer PD50 is serious about sound. With such powerful processing, the Pioneer puts precision and detail to the fore with even the most subtle nuances being picked up. Switch to Hi-bit 32 mode with Super Audio CDs and the sound picks up another notch, with the music more realistic and less-processed sounding for a true-to-life sound.

Super Audio CDs
The Pioneer PD-50 can playback SACDs. These Direct-Stream Digital (DSD) discs offer a far higher resolution than ordinary CDs and are similar in resolution to 24-bit music files. The result is a more natural sound, revealing subtle detail and texture in the music. When combined with Hi-bit 32 audio processing, the results are remarkably fluid and dynamic.

High-end construction
Pioneer's Direct Construction features a separate shield structure. This lies between the power supply and audio components, protecting the delicate audio stage from electrical interference. Along with short signal paths, this helps give the PD50 a more accurate and less distorted sound quality. Other construction highlights include a rigid base and acoustic damper tray that both help reduce the disturbance caused by mechanical vibrations.

Plenty of features
With its front-mounted USB socket, the PD50 lets you access music files stored on an iPod/iPhone/iPad or other storage device, charging your device at the same time. What's more, Pioneer's Sound Retriever significantly improves the sound of typical MP3 files to almost CD levels of quality. In addition to optical and coaxial digital outputs, the PD50 has digital inputs. Connect to a digital source and gain the sonic benefit of the Pioneer's high quality electronics.

As much a digital hub as a CD player, the Pioneer PD50 is a player of many talents

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprising improvement in listening is provided for CD,SACD and even MP3 sources Bought to provide player for my SACD collection, this item has not only done that but revitalised my discs through its 32 bit upscaling. The image stability is stronger than when using a Blu-Ray player for SACD and CD as is the detail. The biggest surprise was the ability to play my iPod through the PD-50 with a stunning sound improvement by using the Sound Retriever function. This is giving me sound quality on MP3 as good as CD on my earlier player. Its a shame players such as this do not provide multi channel capability as many SACDs are multi channel. A minor niggle is the dull printing on the remote control making it hard to read in low light

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pioneer PD50 - Star Player for peanuts Plays CD to a very high standard with deep controlled bass, clear midrange and a slightly recessed treble (which could suit a bright-sounding system). The icing on the top is its ability to play SACD. Absolutely magnificent on SACD playback, like moving up another gear. Really well built and puts many more expensive CD players in the shade. Even the remote is well built. The Pioneer PD50 is an absolute bargain at this price. Grab one while you can.
