Pioneer N-P01 in the Test

Compared with many other streamers and network players, the pioneer N-P01 is a half portion. Can he convince in the test yet?

Compared with many other streamers or network players which is pioneer a half portion. It refers to its subtle, but very attractive mass as well as his weight. Yes, even in the Interior is quite airy. But you have to say in fairness also that the pioneer with a price of 450 euros (currently there are him even for much less) in this respect is a light-weight. And let’s face it: there are not often enough the underdogs who win our hearts? As the supposedly chancenlose Boxer Rocky in the movie or the Icelandic national football team? See.

All right

The N-P01 is the underdog in his family environment. His brothers and sisters N-50A and N-70A should be classified due to their mass, their weight and their prices from many interested parties rather than “full-fledged” network player. The comparison limps but a little because the two brothers serve as DACs, whereas the N-P01 lacking digital inputs. The abandonment of a large number of interfaces can but quite refreshing! The N-P01 pioneer makes it easy for a: connect the network cable and consider whether you sound optical digital via TOSLINK (for Toshiba link) or analog output would connect accordingly – done. In the test that ran without any problems.

A further decision affects the operation. You have the choice between the enclosed remote control and the pioneer control app. The remote control has the disadvantage that it serves also to the control of the stereo receiver XN-P02 and has so many buttons. This is very confusing. Because you need only a few buttons during operation but you get used to it quickly. The app requires an Android or iOS-pad or iPhone of course. This should be no big problem, you look at how widespread such equipment are now. But not everyone wants to always start an app, if he wants to listen to music. Who has, however, to objection an app-control, but maybe is not quite warm with the pioneer control app, can use an other UPnP control app; in the test example, we used the free mConnect app.

What can do the N-P01

Surprising is that the N-P01 despite its price is completely suitable for HiRes. 2.8 MHz, it can reproduce DSD wired network as well as via USB. Via Wi-FI isn’t, but that is no different in other players also. PCM data up to 192 kHz / 24-bit also pose a problem, WLAN are at least 48 kHz / 24-bit possible. These facilities should be sufficient for most music lovers.

The processing there to complain about anything. The aluminium front makes a quality impression.

Featuring… The feature list is impressively long and includes aptX-Bluetooth, AirPlay and our site connect vTuner. Clearly, a few more music-streaming services would be nice, but maybe that will follow. There is a 8.9 cm LCD color display and two Wi-FI antenna for good reception.

Of course, one must accept smears at such a price. So the app a little sluggish and remote control plastic are the display more functional than pretty, a little decrepit. But the small network player shows no quirks in handling equal time! He is bound no time on the network and ready to get started. He quickly reads USB keys and hard drives – it should not be to right things, if no music elicit the N-P01.

Freaked out and small

Devices with digital output are a nice thing. Leave it but their owner whether he sooner or later lies to an external DAC, with which he further helps the sound on the jumps. At the pioneer can wait you confidently, because already the built-in 192-kHz / 32-bit-converter delivers a decent performance. Himself as a great DAC like of Rotel RDD had to stretch in 1580. The pioneer served the music menu softer, smoother and more pleasant – same dynamic capabilities. The Rotel was ahead at the representation of spatial depth, however, also in terms of contour sharpness. Yet this was anything but a cheap sound, what sent the N-P01 via its analog outputs on the reference preamplifier in the stereoplay listening room.

The atoll DAC 200 the pioneer its limits showed up then but clearly – feat at a price of $1500…

This unfair comparison makes it clear that we actually already quite far with a connected analog N-P01. He is really very much, and you forgive him what he fails to detail and room information, given its price and its easy and allürenlosen handling like.

At the end of the hearing test session the Presidents of the United States rocked the listening room “Freaked Out And Small” with their third album, once again. The music of Presidents has an irresistible charm and alternates between low fidelity sound and moderate audiophile and content between reasonably serious and nursery rhyme for adults. The N-P01 let it RIP, pop and rattle. His enthusiasm, good nature, combined with a shot provided a very satisfying end of the listening test.
