Pioneer N-50 in the Test

Pioneer offers the noble network player N-50 for 600 euros. Our test shows what he can achieve.

Very classy is the pioneer N-50. This is for one on his finely processed housing, which brings a handsome weight of more than seven kilos on the scales due to its sub-chassis construction with a second sheet steel base plate. Also powerful impression makes also his six centimeters wide Color display which razor sharp display more than compensates for its relatively small font size by one.

With few controls on its front panel the pioneer is also optically tidy. However, this reduction has the small disadvantage that the control N-50 complete only via the supplied remote control, but alternatively equivalent apps for Android and iOS can be.

Also the pioneer has a Web server, which allows at the moment only the name of the device. Maybe is possible after the next device update.

A firmware update that will make the N-50 fit for interruption-free playback is definitely announced for the next few weeks. So far, Gapless Play only in the AirPlay mode that brings this mode of House succeeds.

In addition to the front panel USB socket for portable Apple devices including iPad the pioneer N 50 has still a real working asynchronously and thus especially jitter-arm USB socket for direct connection of computers that processes also hi res costume in format 24-bit / 92 kHz.

Pioneer: More confident it alone

Apparently, the streaming Department on the Central Digitalboard of N-50 around the BridgeCo Chip DM 860 comes from our own development. Also the asynchronous working USB interface USB audio 2.0 standard? el not commonplace out: here is used as a controller component of the brand new CM6631 by CMedia. The audio Assembly occupies nearly one-third of the housing with “hanging” mounted D/A converters. You treats herself to even an own power supply transformer.

Hearing test

While checking the sound properties of the pioneer N-50 was the term the jurors spontaneously “dignified” in the sense – a “beautiful dye” he’s not. In comparison to the Onkyo for example concentrated N-50, while the T-4070 more on direct attacks from was stronger on plastic timbres, worked for it but a little dry. In the D/A-converter mode via the asynchronous USB input of N-50 compared to network playback won actually still minimal edge sharpness.
