Pioneer XDP-30R-B overview

  • 1Description

Styled in a black finish, the XDP-30R by Pioneer is a portable digital audio player that puts high-resolution audio—streaming or otherwise—right in your pocket. The player supports formats up to DSD 5.6 MHz, 192 kHz/32-bit FLAC/WAV/ALAC/AIFF files, and, with a future-scheduled firmware update, the high-res lossless MQA codec for streaming.

In addition to two on-board SABRE ES9018C2M DACs & two SABRE ES9601K headphone amps, this device offers symmetrical channel layout for equal signal paths inside its solid brushed aluminum chassis. 16GB of internal storage is provided, though disk space can expand with the insertion of one or two microSD cards (available separately). The unit also features Bluetooth and dual-band Wi-Fi.

The XDP-30R's wired connectivity options include two headphone jacks. One is a standard three-pole 3.5mm jack while the other is a balanced four-pole 2.5mm jack. There are two balanced headphone modes, one for improved stereo separation and power for driving demanding headphones and the other for enhanced channel separation and a cleaner, less noisy experience. Automatic signal detection activates one of two internal clocks, either the 44.1/88.2/176.4 kHz or 48/192 kHz, reducing jitter.

    Pioneer XDP-30R-B reviews

    XDP-30R Portable High-Resolution Digital Audio Player (Black) is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from high quality sound at reasonable price This is my first venture into the digital music realm After owning several high end mp3 players such as sony and cowen s9. Initially after unsuccessfully trying to load wma files on this device, I realized the music needed to be converted .Yeah, rookie mistake. Anyway i located a free online batch file convertor named Hamster. I converted all my music to flac quick and easy and very happy with the results.I hope this helps to save anyone else some grief on file loading to this dap. I have both sd card slots utilized with 16gb and 128 gb respectively. It boots fast, and easy access to all my music files and folders. Very pleased. Just my 2 cents.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from First DAP This is my first DAP after so many years using cellphone as music player. And I am not a DAP expert. Just sharing my experiences of using it so far. The good things are: 1, include 2.5mm balance phone jack and regular 3.5mm audio jack 2, compatible with lossless audio formats 3, 2 expandable memory card slots 4, long hours battery life 5, I tried several pairs of decent over the ears headphones and in-ear headphones on this device, the sound quality is great. The bad things are: 1, a bit cheap plastic built case 2, the WiFi is a bit hard to connect 3, Bluetooth will cut out after waking up the device from sleep mode Overall, I like this DAP, the overall specs and sound production are awesome in this price range.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sparkling highs, great design, perfect for true audiophile. I'm a nut about spatial imaging and signal to noise ratio.� Even mp3 files have new life.� This player is crisp and clean.� The touch screen is nicely designed.� I gave up on iPod long ago because of the wonky iTunes software.� This couldn't be easier.� You simply format the micro sd card in the device to begin with (format is FAT32 but it must be formatted by the device for some unknown reason) then in Windows Explorer you plug the micro SD into a USB adapter, drag and drop your music, best to use conventional format of folders named by artists.� Then, plug micro SD into device, let it read it (very fast load) and bang you're ready to go.� I suggest you also set up using home wi-fi and let it update firmware.� Bonus: it has Bluetooth.� This replaces Fiio X-1 and X-5, both are nice units as well but this has better interface and faster processor.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Only one real problem I have only had this player for a few days. I inserted two 256 GB Micro SD cards and loaded all my music onto them. I think about 40,000 songs. It plays everything file type I could ever want and they sound great. It pairs with my wireless Bose headphones in no time. I love that I have all my music in one place, but that is also where the problem lies. There is no search function! So, to find a song, I have to scroll through thousands of songs and since they are in alphabetical order, I have to know the exact starting letter. All my songs are not labelled perfectly. So, if I have a song labelled like this - 02-Hello Goodbye-beatles, I may never find it. I would never think to look under 0 if I didn't even know it was labelled that way. If I could search for Hello and get a few songs, I could find it. Maybe a firmware upgrade could fix this, but I doubt one is coming.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My First DAP! I really love this Hi-Res audio player so far.� The interface is fast and it's easy to find albums and artists.� I haven't created playlists yet, but the software (PC) is easy to manage audio files and load onto the player.� The screen is slightly pixelated but I knew that going in.� 24bit High Resolution audio sounds incredible. I got it on sale at BHPhotoVideo for $200 and at that price point it is an awesome little player.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Don't bother, Pioneer no longer cares Bought this due to my prior experience with Pioneer and advertised ability to handle two 256GB microSD cards. Purchased the Samsung cards noted in the manual, but it is only possible to write to the cards using the very, very slow XDAP software. When you try to access the music on the cards, neither of the two slots is recognized by the player. I did try smaller capacity cards and they do work, but what is the point when the max cap cards don't work and the writing time is way too slow. Called Pioneer and they had no clue, so they referred me to the actual manufacturer who has no one to answer technical questions, only parts or sales! Yes, this player is not a Pioneer, which is probably a good thing given how far Pioneer has now fallen. Don't buy it! The audio quality is pretty good, but nothing amazing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from iPod Replacement, and sounds better! There weren't many reviews when I took the leap on this, but I can say I am very pleased after spending a couple of weeks with it. First, sound, this player sounds really good playing back FLAC and MP3 files, haven't really messed with the High Res files yet, which 99% of the public couldn't tell difference in 24 bit or 16 bit, but we won't travel down that rabbit hole. MP3's, in my opinion sounds better on the Pioneer than the iPod. I primarily picked this up to replace an aging iPod classic, and with the ability to have up to 416 GB of storage it more than doubles the capacity of a iPod. The OS is no frills and I like the simplicity of it, it's for music, not movies, games, etc. I was pleased that you could add songs and create playlist on the unit itself. The XDap software could use some improvements, however, I just dragged and dropped after synching with the software the first time. Battery life is decent, it keeps up with my use quite well. It packs a lot of features for the price. I wish they had built this years ago, and I wouldn't have overpaid for a portable music player (iPod) with less superior sound.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pioneer XDP-30R HiRes Player I have nothing but praise for this player. The added plus is the blue-tooth and wifi connections. Great bang for $. With the ability of 528GB's of storage even better!
