Enjoy high performance sound quality with Pioneer’s PD-30AE CD player, featuring hairline aluminium front panel,thick and rigid chassis, gold-plated audio terminals, 192 kHz/24-bit DAC, high-accuracy clock, large-capacity EI transformer, and high-grade headphone terminal. Precise data readout is supported by a low-vibration steel sheet housing with aluminium front, a generously dimensioned power supply and an especially low-interference precision clock that cycles the drive and D/A converter with ±10ppm accuracy so that jitter interfering with the sound does not develop in the first place. The CD tray has silky smooth quiet operation - even Pioneer doesn’t call it a ‘Silent Load’ system for nothing!

The quality of playback is everything you could ask of a  player and more. It won’t come as much of a surprise to learn Pioneer is using a 192kHz/24-bit DAC inside the PD-30AE because the backgrounds are totally silent, so if the music was recorded live, you could hear the background noise at the venue perfectly and, if the audience was being silent, you could hear the ambience of the acoustic itself. This would be excellent for any CD player, much less a budget player such as this.

The fact that a budget CD player such as the Pioneer PD-30AE can deliver such high levels of performance is amazing. If you’re after simplicity and superb sound… and you’re happy to load a CD when you want to hear music… Pioneer’s  PD-30AE is the machine you want.
