Pioneer D 6

This player uses a specular highlight. Not superficial overexposure, but very subtly used spots.

  2. Data sheet

Lush Orchestra, small ensembles, rhythmic piano sounds, gentle songs: The AUDIO Super listening course CD 5 played the D 6 with the unobtrusive color joy, that makes enjoyment. And he charges Rachel Morrison with the appropriate thrust emotion.

Congratulations to pioneer for the decision to build stereo again seriously. And the same with this result. Especially the two 500-euro components convince with outstanding price-to sound ratio. With the combination of D, 6/A 6 can not much wrong to make also contemporaries if they require not so much power the amplifier. The CD/SACD player is anyway one of the sound most its class.
