Pioneer N-30

 

First came the wax cylinder , followed by the LP , eight-track , cassette, CD, MP3, and now the digital stream. While most of the types of media on that list have dedicated players, the last two have sort of floundered when it comes to dedicated...

The Pioneer Elite N-30 Network Audio Player certainly looks like a $500 item, with a solid build and a stylish remote. Its sound quality is a clear head and shoulders above entry-level media players. iPhone control is free.

The 2.5-inch screen is too small and the flawed smartphone app doesn't do much to make up for it. Adding wireless adds a hefty $150 to the bill. You may find that the onboard sound of your receiver is every bit as good as the Pioneer's analog outs.

As the first "affordable" hi-fi streamer, the Pioneer N-30 puts on a good performance, but the controls could be so much easier to use.

Pioneer N30 Network Audio Player Review,Price in India

 

Pioneer N-30 Network Audio Player uses the Ethernet port to download music and you will need to spend another $150 for the proprietary wireless adaptor. Bluetooth is optional too and costs an additional $99

With features like free iphone control, pretty good sound quality, solid build, stylish remote and sleek looks, Pioneer N 30 gives you quite a good performance for a just about affordable media player. The competition for the Pioneer N-30 Network Audio...
