Pioneer XW-NAS5 iPod Audio System - Brutish & Powerful


The stylish Pioneer XW-NAS5 iPod audio system has just arrived in our labs and we gave it a listen to find out how it fares. It's one of the few devices we know that can mimic various external environments along with your favorite tunes.

Pioneer XWNAS5


Room-filling volume. Sounds great with the right material. FM radio. Component output. Great build quality. On-board DAC and digital amp.

Pioneer XW-NAS5 iPod dock


Pioneer's XW-NAS5 is a seriously expensive dock. It has a 10cm subwoofer, "ultra-rigid" construction and an "advanced sound retriever" which Pioneer claims "upscales" compressed MP3 audio to improve the sound.

Glorious looks. Optional wireless capabilties

The price is frightening

Stylish, solid and sonically adept – but the high price is a bit of a turn-off
