Pioneer PDX-Z9 review


The Pioneer PDX-Z9 is an innovative idea, full of useful features, and comes in a tidy little package. It's a one-box hi-fi with digital amplification

Endless specification ; capable of perky, well-integrated sound ; nicely finished

Can sound pretty lifeless ; over-sensitive fascia controls

Filling a gap in the market where there wasn’t even a gap before, Pioneer serves up the year’s most intriguing oddity so far

Pioneer PDX-Z9 Receiver


Here's an impressive kit. Despite packing in so many features at a high level, Pioneer's PDX-Z9 SACD receiver is one smart looker.

Product Specifications

Internet radio, your CD (and SACD) collection, your iPod, even music stored on your home PC, the PDX-Z9 will receive and digitally amplify your entire music collection; how and wherever it's stored. The PDX-Z9 embodies the entire spectrum of modern-day conveniences. It offers poised power delivery from a two-channel digital amplifier and features first-class Super Audio CD playback. The receiver not only handles MP3, WMA and MPEG-4 AAC compressed audio formats, but covers playback of high-quality FLAC files as well. The PDX-Z9 has the ability to receive terrestrial FM/AM radio stations as well as those from the Internet, while iPod and USB devices can be directly connected and controlled with the receiver's remote. As the PDX-Z9 is DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) certified, it integrates into a home network and provides simple, easy-to-control access to digital music. The receiver features a clean, minimalist design that fits nicely into any contemporary interior. With its aluminum top panel, all-round glossy black finish and rounded edges the PDX-Z9 sports a fresh, modern look. The easy readable full dot white OEL display and refined touch sensors give the device just that little bit extra.
