THE STREAMING REFERENCE: UNRESTRICTED AUDIOPHILE, UNRESTRICTED COMFORTABLE
All Pioneer achievements in the field of digital music reproduction, have been combined in the N-70AE network-player and married with state-of-the-art streaming technology.
The result is a player that won´t let you miss anything: music of every style, from any location, and in any file format will sound more natural, richer and more sweeping than ever before via the N-70AEs audiophile D/A-converters.
Channel-separated high-quality conversion circuits (ESS SABRE 9016), fully-balanced signal processing as well as the Pioneer proprietary PQA (jitter suppression), HiBit32 (upsampling) and Lock Range Adjust function are working congenially. Thanks to its tremendous flexibility, the N-70AE not only improves the sound, but also enhances the music selection. Choose from tens of millions of titles on the servers of the integrated streaming services like Spotify, Deezer and Tidal for a small subscription fee, stream thousands of free webradio stations or stream your local music libraries at any quality level up to DSD and HiRes. If the music comes from your tablet or smartphone, AirPlay, integrated Chromecast technology and PlayFi are ready and always offer optimal playback options for every mobile music source. Thanks to optical, coaxial and USB digital inputs, external sources such as PC, satellite receiver or a classic CD player can also benefit from the superior N-70AE converter technology. The N-70AE brings all your accustomed music sources elegantly up to date - if you need them at all with the streaming capabilities offered here.
MASTER QUALITY AUTHENTICATED: MQA
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.
The N-70AE / N-50AE comes with Chromecast built-in, so you can use your mobile device to stream your favourite music, radio, or podcasts to the player. You can control the audio from anywhere in the house using Chromecast-enabled apps running on your personal device - iPhone, iPad, Android phone and tablet, Mac and Windows laptop, and Chromebook™. Discover Chromecast-enabled apps at google.com/cast/apps.
