EISA-Award-Logo-Pioneer-XDP-02U

One of the first audiophile personal players to break the magic €400 price point, the Pioneer XDP-02U offers a touch display housed in a practically designed body that’s available in white, blue and pink finishes. It incorporates 16GB of built-in memory – expandable to 512GB via two microSD card slots – and a powerful 300mW-rated amplifier able to drive even the most demanding of headphones via its choice of balanced and single-ended outputs. Music can be streamed using Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, the battery lasts for around 15 hours and the player is compatible with music files up to 192kHz/32-bit. The sound boasts excellent microdynamics and the performance can be delicately managed using its onboard 10-band equaliser.
