Enjoy top quality Hi-Res sound at a more affordable price, with the Pioneer XDP30R.

High Resolution sound - a new standard in listening to music

For the finest sound quality, High Resolution Audio files take music to the next level. The difference between HR (High Resolution) music and typical MP3/AAC compressed music files is immense. HR music offers a deeper and wider sound stage, more precise imaging and, above all, a far greater sense of realism.

Twin ESS DACs for top quality sound
Using not one but two SABRE ESS DACs (Digital to Analogue Convertors), the XDP-30R puts sound quality first. Using two DACs means the left and the right channels each get dedicated conversion processes. What this means for sound is enhanced detail and a more immersive soundstage with precise focus between the left and right channels.

Fully balanced pre-amp and headphone socket
With a fully balanced headphone output, the Pioneer XDP30R offers exceptionally low noise levels. When used with a set of suitable, balanced headphones (with 2.5mm balanced connection), you get reference levels of low distortion for a sound that's as good as you'll hear in a professional studio set-up.

MQA playback
Compatible with Meridian's MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) technology, the Pioneer XDP-30R delivers High Resolution audio up to studio standard quality. Although studio master quality, the beauty of MQA is that files are small enough to easily stream and don't take up so much storage space. A wide range of High Resolution files are supported, including DSD, FLAC and WAV.

Internet Radio and Tidal compatible
With Tunein Internet Radio built-in, the XDP-30R gives you access to a massive range of radio stations. Connect up with the built-in Wi-Fi and enjoy effortless music streaming. With Tidal compatibility, the XDP-30R is the ideal playback device for this top quality Hi-Res music streaming service.

DuoRemote gives hands-free control
Control the XDP-30R with your smartphone. The free Pioneer DuoRemote app uses Bluetooth low energy to tether smartphone to portable, so you don’t have to juggle devices on crowded public transport. Keep the Pioneer in your bag or pocket and use your phone to control volume and perform playback operations such as play/pause, skip, scan, shuffle, and repeat.

The potential for up to 400GB storage
As standard, the XDP-30R comes with 16GB of internal storage. Thanks to the twin SD card slots, though, this can easily be boosted to 400GB (with 2 x memory cards). This is enough for a substantial music library - even at High Resolution.

Listen to the highest quality music, wherever you are, with the Pioneer XDP-30R.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great player! So firstly this thing sounds amazing! Deep full sound signature with plenty of adaptivity due to the 3 custom EQ profiles alongside the plethora built-in. Up-sampling and hi-bit 32 rates are a nice touch and something I miss when using a mobile. I brought this player to fill the void my iPod classic left when it finally gave the ghost. I used the iPod for convenience and the storage! This pioneer ticks both those boxes whilst satisfying the audiophile experience as well! I have used tidal on the device and it has been a very seamless experience providing you have built playlists or favourite albums before hand I recommend Tidal over Spotify premium every time especially to anyone investing in audio. The only issue I have had with this amazing little device was the strength of the WiFi signal it can receive. It seems like it is highly limited and I can only seem to get it to work from under 8 meters from the router. Which may concern others. But if you are using a local library that's a non-issue. Overall the pioneer has got me buying CDs again and really refreshing my audio experience. Highly recommended player for anyone! 4 star only due to WiFi signal strength. Otherwise it's almost a perfect little device!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome little music player! A great piece of kit from Pioneer. You do have to spend a little more if you want to increase the number of music files you wish to carry around - the internal memory is only 16GB. Two micro SD card slots can each hold a 200GB micro SD card so that would mean a total of 416GB. This is a high res music player so this additional storage space makes a big difference. Transferring music files was very easy. I use a MacBook pro and manually transferred the folders holding my music files via USB. That was for the internal storage. For the micro SD cards, I had to slot those directly into my MacBook and copy the folders over before slotting into the player. Once the player syncs all the files, it's pretty well organised. For Windows users, there is an optional software that can be installed for syncing and transferring music files. For playing, I connected the Pioneer via Bluetooth to my Marantz MCR611 Melody Media - very easy and I haven't looked back. The only snag is having to spend another £130 for 2 x 200GB micro SD cards but I don't miss my iPod at all. Sound quality is as good as the music file - high res, ALAC, FLAC all sound fantastic.
