Putting sound quality first
With a meaty 50W (at 4 ohms) Direct Energy HD amplifier onboard, the Pioneer NC-50DAB is powerful enough to run most speakers to room-filling volume. Pioneer's unique P-BASS system provides a powerful bass response, but if you need even more there's a subwoofer connection for your choice of active sub.
HiRes sound via an ESS SABRE 32 Ultra DAC
Featuring a top quality ESS SABRE 32 DAC, the Pioneer NC-50DAB delivers top quality HiRes sound. With a high signal-to-noise ratio and wide dynamic range, digital audio benefits from ultra-low levels of noise and deep, powerful dynamics .The Pioneer is compatible with many high resolution formats. Both AIFF and Apple Lossless audio files are supported, as are WAV, FLAC and DSD files (DSD not via wireless LAN). Connect via USB or to your network (wired connection preferably) and you can finally enjoy those high resolution music files exactly how they were meant to be heard.
Chromecast, AirPlay and Bluetooth
It's easy to stream music from your smartphone and tablet with Chromecast and AirPlay onboard. Link up wirelessly and stream your stored music or favourite music services using Google (Android) or iTunes (Apple) operating systems. For universal compatibility, including many laptops and PCs, Bluetooth wireless music streaming is also available.
Wi-Fi, Tidal, Spotify and Internet radio for the complete networking experience

Using the latest FireConnect by Blackfire technology it's possible to create a multi-room speaker system - wirelessly! Simply add compatible Pioneer wireless speakers and you can mirror what's playing on the main system in another room.
Multiple USB and digital inputs
As well as all this wireless connectivity , the NC-50DAB also offers great wired connects. With USB sockets both front and rear you can not only connect up your USB memory device but also your home computer for streaming Hi-Res music files. Also standard are both optical and coaxial digital inputs - ideal for plugging in your Freeview TV, HDTV box or Blu-ray player.
All this, plus you can still connect up your record deck
If all this connectivity weren't enough, the NC-50DAB still works great as a hi-fi amp. A line input lets you hook up any auxcillary source you might have. You can even plug in your turntable, thanks to the dedicated phono (MM) input.
For the most complete connectivity, powerful sound and sleek style, the Pioneer NC50DAB is the one-box option to beat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CORINTO96 from Excellent in all departments, sound operation et Although you pre-warned me it was delayed from Pioneer, it was well worth waiting for and your 'speaker cable' I purchased as well, was also worth while

Rated 4 out of 5 by sodium from Excellent connectivity and output I wanted to just counterbalance the one star review. I bought this last year and I have nothing but praise for it. I mostly use it for Spotify Connect (I know, sorry audiophiles) and it connects perfectly and through Mordaunt Short speakers it fills the room nicely. Also excellent for movies. So personally I've been very happy with it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by WiFijon from Disappointed Bought it just prior to Christmas and not happy with the product. CD is not always responsive and moving thru the menu for radio programs usually end up with the unit freezing. This can only be resolved by switching the unit off then back on .
