Harman/Kardon HK6150 Amplifier review
Amplifier Harman/Kardon HK6150

You see the HK6150 looks suspiciously like the old HK6100 in a new matt enclosure with new and rather more elegant rotary controls. And remember, the HK6100 was little more than a restyled PM635i which was, er, heavily based on the older PM635. So for the last several years HK has been using what amounts...

Amplifier Pioneer A-405R

Probably, Mrs. Symmetry reigned over the Pioneer designers' minds, when they developed the appearance of this series of amplifiers.

Pioneer A-676 Amplifier review
Amplifier Pioneer A-676

From the people that brought us the legendary A-400 comes the A-676 Reference Stereo Amplifier. Ought to be pretty good then! Funnily enough, once you wade past the bass, treble, balance and loudness controls, the MM/MC phono selector with subsonic filter option, the independent rec-out and input selection...
Pioneer A-777 Amplifier review
Amplifier Pioneer A-777

So the A-676 is not meaty enough for you, huh? Then feast your eyes on its bigger brother, the 391b A-777.

Pioneer A-A6-J Amplifier review
Amplifier Pioneer A-A6-J

Pioneer revives its hi-fi line of equipment. It is represented only by two but so good amplifiers and two players. The older "ninth" amplifier is the undisputed winner of any tests.

Cassette deck Pioneer CT-93

The long-awaited Dolby S-type noise reduction (NR) system didn't get off to much of a start.

Pioneer DV-535 DVD-player review
DVD-player Pioneer DV-535

This Pioneer player can be regarded as an example to simplify the model by simply subtracting the digital audio decoder. Everything else remains the same as its big brother, DV-635D, including even the two levels of the setup menu (basic and "experts") and the same remote control. Note that it also has...

Pioneer DV-868AVi DVD-player review
DVD-player Pioneer DV-868AVi

At first glance, the "flagship" model is indistinguishable from the more modest costs fellow: front panel has the same wide chamfer at the top, the same controls.

Pioneer DV-989AVi DVD-player review
DVD-player Pioneer DV-989AVi

Design. Before us Pioneer DV-989AVi - a very serious machine. It occupies the top position in the line of eminent manufacturer and therefore would have to be equipped with "eyeballs".

Pioneer F-204RDS Tuner review
Tuner Pioneer F-204RDS

The tuner Pioneer F-204RDS turned out to be well equipped functionally and not only functionally - two antennas are attached into the box.

Network Receiver Pioneer NC-50DAB

Pioneer PD-50 CD-player review
CD-player Pioneer PD-50

This being a Japanese-made player, it's no surprise to find it's Super Audio CD compatible. Although SACD is in the twilight of its years as a format, it retains a strong following in Japan, so it makes sense to include it, plus there is still a number of excellent, small labels releasing the discs. The...
Pioneer PD-8700 CD-player review
CD-player Pioneer PD-8700

What a cracking surprise this player turned out to be. Not least because pressing the eject key brings you face-to-face with a mini turntable platter (complete with rubber mat) instead of the usual CD loading drawer. Why the platter? Well, the basic idea is to avoid the little wobbles and resonances...
Pioneer PD-91 CD-player review
CD-player Pioneer PD-91

With its PD-91 Compact Disc player, Pioneer claims use of the "world's first true 18-bit D/A [digital-to-analog] converter." Even though the PD-91 has been scooped by another true 18-bit machine using the same converter chips, Pioneer's 18-bit entry does offer a measurable advance in the approach to...
Pioneer PD-9700 CD-player review
CD-player Pioneer PD-9700

Some £400 plus players are respectable pieces of engineering by any standards. This is the case with this relatively trim looking heavyweight, which includes extensive antiresonance measures and sits on five feet. The headline feature, however, is the so-called 'Stable Platter Mechanism' in which...

CD-player Pioneer PD-S504

Pioneer PD-S703 CD-player review
CD-player Pioneer PD-S703

Despite of the traditional black taint, PD-S703 looks unusual. It is quite high device, the disc loader of which is placed in the middle of the faceplate. More precisely there is a display of blue glow in the middle, and unusually wide disc loader is under it. Exactly this distinguishes PD-S703 from...
Pioneer PD-S802 CD-player review
CD-player Pioneer PD-S802

Complete consensus is rare among hi-fi reviewers, as it is among hi-fi aficionados in general. But some products do more than engender disagreement: they inspire polarization.

Pioneer PD-S904 CD-player review
CD-player Pioneer PD-S904

A distinctive feature of Pioneer PD-S904 in the installation of CD is that it is installed in this player on a massive disc track up.

Now...
Pioneer RSC-606H Home Theatre System review
Home Theatre System Pioneer RSC-606H

Without exaggeration, the original home theater system.

They combine conventional coaxial cable, which makes sense...

5.1 system Pioneer S-V810A

That only is the use of ribbon tweeters in the front speakers (Pioneer said "ceiling" of acoustic systems at 100 kHz)!

Solid and respectable gives VSA-805S wide hinged lid-filter at the bottom of the front panel that hides the display of the amplifier and the rotary control knob select a surround mode Jog Dial.

Pioneer VSX-5000 AV-receiver review
AV-receiver Pioneer VSX-5000

What I am about to describe may sound like two, three, or even four separate audio and video components.

Pioneer VSX-806RDS AV-receiver review
AV-receiver Pioneer VSX-806RDS

The impression is that at the development of Pioneer VSX-806RDS for the sake of "artistry" the designers have forgotten about functional combination of controls, placing volume control in one side, loudness button in the opposite direction and tones and balance somewhere in the middle of the panel.

Pioneer VSX-915 AV-receiver review
AV-receiver Pioneer VSX-915

The new line, as recognized in the Pioneer, shifted down (at a price, of course, but not in quality) relative to last year.

AV-receiver Pioneer VSX-915-S

Appearance receiver Pioneer VSX-915-S is misleading: Stylish front panel turned out to plastic for a model of this class - a rarity. No other structural compromises.

AV-receiver Pioneer VSX-C301

"Pioneer" is hard to suspect that he is - pretty powerful receiver. In the apparatus slim, at least on the front panel buttons, and almost the entire central part of the display is the indicator.

Pioneer VSX-C502 AV-receiver review
AV-receiver Pioneer VSX-C502

Familiarity with this novelty immediately led to the idea that Pioneer in the development of thin receiver at the center put a different value - not the functionality and sound quality.

Harmonious design of the front panel of Pioneer VSX-D714-S receiver is impressive; the controls are clearly grouped into work areas.

AV-receiver Pioneer VSX-D810S

AV-receiver Pioneer VSX-D811S-K

Hinged lid, inherited receiver from senior colleagues, hides most of the controls and full AV-input (including connectors for optical digital output and S-Video), so the front panel does not look overloaded - rather the contrary.
