Pioneer A-A9 Integrated Amplifier and PD-D6 CD/SACD Player

 

Way back in 1990, Pioneer created something of a sensation in the UK hi-fi market by introducing a reasonablypriced integrated amplifier - the A-400 - aimed at audiophiles on a tight budget. It was a bold move. The UK was a tough market to crash, and...

Track access is a bit slow. The D6 likes to have a bit of a think before it responds to your commands. Likewise, fast winding through tracks is slow and 'jerky' - instead of winding back or forth smoothly and quickly, the D6 tends to jump in short...

Pioneer A-A9-J review

 

Specification and design impressive apart from the remote), but perhaps lacking substance at this price point?

Good looks ; decent build ; comprehensive spec ; fast and exciting sound

Not the most substantial or explicit listen ; truly vile remote

Exciting but not the most substantial or explicit listen.

Pioneer A-A9

 

It has been a while since Pioneer last made serious two-channel audio components, and it's perhaps a reflection of how crowded things have got in the AV market that it has decided to have another stab at it now

High resolve and decent power levels for the money, Well equipped and connected, Looks good

Display can't be left on in direct mode

The A-A9 takes on the mantle of the classic A400 with ease. It isn't quite as cuddly, but it's very resolute and revealing for the price

You also get a motorised Alps volume control that should help the sound and a 'direct' setting which has the same aim but which defeats the backlighting on the display so that the numerical volume indication can't be seen. Unfortunately the source name...

Nicely sculpted front panel, great timing and spaciousness along with a clean detailed and dynamic sound

Not quite as incisive or as powerful as some

Pioneer A-A9 AMPLIFIER Integrated Amplifiers

 

The Pioneer A-A 9 is simply one of the best amps Pioneer has ever made. Please be aware that its successor, the A-A 9 MK 2 - is just about the contrary, the example I had tried sounded way to soft and uninspiring.

What a bargain. I love a bargain. Fabulous amplifier with fabulous build quality. Lucid, engaging, very powerful (sounds a lot more than 70 Watts). I only bought it because I got it cheap on EBay (£185) & now it takes pride of place in my system. At...

My beloved A-A9 is a mark 1. I fell in love with it when I once saw it in photo on a Sunday mag; two years later I bought it as a bargain at AUDIOZONA, (an online Spanish shop, offering many outlet products) for only 499 euros. CRAZY! I expected a...
