Bluetooth or Airplay, subscription streaming service or Internet radio, high-resolution download or simply a CD: the NC-50 DAB combines the full diversity of digital music playback with a universal full amplifier and additional analogue and digital inputs – in a single housing with the classic hi-fi format.
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.
