NC-50DAB
All-in-one hi-fi system with class D output stages, CD player and full-feature streaming unit.

Everything a modern hi-fi system needs – with your choice of speakers!

When record players, UHF radios and cassette decks still dominated the world of hi-fi, good sound systems were large, expensive and complicated out of necessity. Reap the fruits of the digital revolution with the NC-50 DAB – and take back all sorts of space in your living room. In an elegant housing with the classic hi-fi format, it combines everything you need for a modern high-end system: CD player, network player, digital and Internet radio, high-quality music subscription services and all current streaming standards for your smart phone or tablet. All digital sources – integrated or connected via one of the digital inputs – use the audiophile DAC of the N-50 DAB, a SABRE32 from ESS. The integrated amplifier technology is highly modern as well: Pioneer’s own direct energy HD output stages offer transparent, natural sound and performance reserves that would have taken up the entire housing volume with conventional technology. The powerful output stages ease the only decision you have make yourself with the NC-50 DAB: simply combine it with the speakers that are the perfect match for your listening and interior design tastes. Your system is certain to combine maximum quality and program diversity in the space of a single hi-fi component. If nostalgia should seize you anyway, nothing stops you from connecting a record player. All digital diversity aside, we also thought of analogue inputs and even a phone input.

Master Quality Authenticated: MQA
MQA: Master Quality Authenticated

The higher the resolution of digitally stored music, the greater the amount of data required. The revolutionary master quality authenticated (MQA) lossless format provides the sound quality of a master recording, but also makes much smaller data quantities possible through its very efficient, loss-free method of compression. You can therefore easily play high-resolution music directly from the internet on your player. MQA is also backward compatible with the FLAC format and can thus be played on any FLAC-compatible device.
