PD-D9MK2-K SACD-CD Player
Designed with an emphasis on quick response and an open sound, the new PD-D9MK2-K SACD / CD player has one purpose: stunningly accurate audio disc sound reproduction.
With over 70 years of audio heritage, industry firsts and an unrelenting and uncompromising philosophy to bring you as close as possible to your music, Pioneer has created our most accurate SACD / CD player to date.
AIR Studios Tuning
The PD-D9MK2-K is engineered to meet the rigorous standards set by the recording professionals at London’s legendary AIR Studios. Our long-standing collaboration with them on Elite components allows us to better understand the artistic vision of the recording studio professional, as well as ensure the most precise re-creation of the original recordings.
State-Of-The-Art Internal Components
To accomplish that, we decided the only thing that wouldn’t be included was compromise.
Power supply response is sharply enhanced by integrating a non-feedback loop power supply circuit and low ESR capacitors with Schottky barrier diodes; techno-talk for the most advanced techniques in optical disc power management to ensure every “bit” of digital information is output in pure hi-fidelity.
Pioneer’s exclusive Legato Link Conversion PRO utilizes complex algorithms to re-create the natural high-frequencies lost in digital conversion, resulting in smooth and natural analog sound .
Twin Wolfson® 192kHz / 24-Bit D/A converters guarantee the purest digital to analogue signal conversion, whereas a highly accurate crystal oscillator produces extremely stable, low-jitter signals with minimal time-axis errors for the most accurate reproduction of the original recording. Clearly a purist approach to design.
