Product Description

Pioneer PD-30AE CD Player CD Player distinguishes itself in its class thanks to its pure, genuine silent CD drive which focuses on only a single task for reduced operating noise and enhanced audio performance. PD30AE features a sturdy chassis, hairline finish front facsia, 192kHz/24-bit DAC, high-accuracy 10ppm clock, variable headphone jack, digital outputs and EI transformer with a large capacity.


The low-vibration steel sheet housing and aluminium front panel facilitates accurate data readout and is coupled with an amply proportioned power supply and purpose-made low-interference precision clock which cycles the DAC and drive with ±10ppm precision to prevent development of jitter that interfers with sound.

DAC Function

Digital optical and coaxial outputs are included so external players can also benefit from PD-30AE's converter even without the linked amplifier thanks to a built-in variable headphone jack. Synergy for ultimate convenience is acheived when paired with the N-30AE Network Player as this lets you operate the CD player via the Pioneer Remote App by transferring its commands through remote cable.

Genuine Silent Drive

Pioneer PD-30AE uses the silent drive mechanism which is among only few authentic CD drives and was manufactured especially for reliable, low-noise CD sampling and is centrally mounted in the torsion-resistant steel and aluminium chassis.

Large-Scale Power Supply

Pioneer favours custom-made parts instead of taking the easier route of utilising ready-made solutions and this shows in both the huge-scale power supply and the converter board employing the contemporary AKM-DAC 4482VT and ultra-precise clock pulse which is a minimal ±10ppm deviation. These are all ideal considerations for reproducing an accurately focused, life-like sound.
