Half priced competitor Onkyo T-4070, pioneer sends its N-30 in the race when the network players. Our test reveals what lawful for the pioneer N-30.
Opulence and lavish Prassen are not his thing – therefore already price factors but in its concentration on the essential, the N-30 beneficial recalls a traditional Japanese “shokato bento”, in which various components of a meal are served artistically and aesthetically perfect reduction. The smaller brother of the N-50 without including its numerous digital inputs and thus also on the possibility of an Asynchronous USB interface – as well as the Onkyo T-4070. The missing two manufacturers features gapless light: the relationship between N-30 and N-50 (below) is not to be overlooked.
Big brother Audioboard distinguishes by its Extratrafo for it, otherwise he is largely identical. Optional: For an additional fee an Wi-FI – and a Bluetooth module (each approx. 50 euro) to the sockets provided on the N-30 can dock if necessary. You miss play and fast forward / rewind but with amazement–technically wouldn’t finally easily enable these functions. The colored, razor Sharp multi-line display but fortunately survived and allows comfortable control over the menus. The bottom line, the equipment can so quite convincing: the N-30 supports AirPlay, Internet radio and via optional adapter also Wi-FI, Bluetooth, and pioneer’s own air-jam links.
Buying advice: 12 Floorstanding speaker in the test The latter allows up to four iGeräten in the Apple universe, send a common playlist – for parties when simultaneously connected to the N-30 a nice option. Also on board: the 192 kHz/32-bit D/A converter known by the N-50 as excellent.
However, engineers dispensed with the separate second power adapter as well as on the double bottom and therefore additional stability of the housing – somewhere must come from the difference in price Yes. Also features such as pure audio and the Packing functions for data-reduced food be reserved for big brother. The display is too small, which accesses the well-made, Pioneer’s own Controll app, which provides best ease. Android group members remain by the way no way out – for her pioneer (such as by the way also Onkyo) programmed its own app.
Side by side made in the listening room, the N-30 also the N-50 made not only a pretty figure, but both revealed a homogeneous, warm timbrierten basic character. The magnificent piece of Jeff Buckley’s “grace” sparked a rousing Groove about both players. The N-50 dedicated to the critical keynote range somewhat more concentration and warmth, while the N-30 with the same tonal character in the upper treble a little bit nervous to works went.
In comparison with the Onkyo, this put a more direct, more plausible gait on the day. The N-30 lined with “Gung ho” the voice of Patti Smith with a more relaxed, nonchalanteren handwriting, took her doing but a bit their shades and their scary intensity. The separation of instruments and individual tracks managed N-30 clear and defined, however, grabbed a grain to more aggressively the Onkyo here and lit a few lumens more in depth of the piece.
Nonchalance contra Verve
About Magnus Öströms “Piano Break” (noble), the pioneer stretched rather unobtrusive tension, where the timing was somewhat indecisive. However, he recommended with its elegant, almost distinguished game as a gentleman who stands for hours of hassle-free music enjoyment. Thanks to still ergreifenderem pace, clearer, neutral balance and generally more verve and temperament, the Onkyo but had the nose front. However, the small pioneer was an excellent idea. Friends of beschönigenden nothing, but emerge with warmth and airiness character will miss absolutely nothing on him.
