Product Description

Pioneer PD-50AE CD player brings you studio quality music with ESS DAC and discrete power supply for both analogue and digital circuitries. It decodes MQA files and ensures precise disc playback with low noise and vibration.

Combines as a USB DAC

Not only a CD player, the PD-50AE also works as a USB D/A converter for stunning sound. The superb build-quality is specially designed to maximum the potential of the ESS DAC, letting you hear music from your connected USB devices with extraordinary details.

High Quality Audio

Each digital and analog circuitry has its own discrete power supply ensuring the purest audio signal path and rich sound reproduction. Studio quality sound is delivered through custom electrolytic capacitors designed for stable and dynamic performance of SACD and CD sound.

MQA Decoding

This CD player supports Master Quality Authenticated files, allowing you to decode and listen to files that replicate the original master recording. The built-in MQA decoder recognises MQA-CD's, and will restore the hi-res signal with authentication signature to deliver the most superior sound quality. You can enjoy MQA-encoded content even on DVD-R for a true high-fidelity audio experience.

Low Noise Disc Drive

The PD-50AE SACD player is equipped with pick up control technology designed to playback discs to unmatched levels of precision. A honeycomb construction surrounds the drive mechanism, shielding the DAC and other electronic components thus delivering exceptional damping for a quiet and vibration free performance.

Adjust your CD player

Lock range adjust function lets you make slight adjustments in the DAC's lock range in six steps to minimise input signal jitter. The DAC also features three switchable sound characteristics; "slow", "sharp" and "short" that are controlled with the digital filter.
