As far as I’m concerned it’s always worth getting some Pioneer audio equipment into your car if you’re bothered about a decent sound, and the latest CD tuner (DEX-P99RS) looks as if it won’t disappoint.
I know, we’re all MP3 and iPods now, right? Don’t fret, you can still plug in all your external media players via USB, and if you’re playing lossless audio tracks then the direct-to-DSP connection means you’ll get much better audio quality.
In fact, even if you’re listening to compressed music (as most PMP users do), Pioneer’s Advanced Sound Retriever replaces lost harmonics, increasing audio depth and perceived quality.
The CD player itself features an Optical Digital Reference System, powerful DSPs and four 24-bit digital-analog converters which handle high, mid, low and subwoofer channels individually.
All in all a classy addition to your car if you’re serious about auto audio. It’s out this month in the UK.
