Check for the ASTA mark or the BSI mark on the body of the fuse.
If the plug contains a removable fuse cover, you must ensure that it is refitted when the fuse is replaced. If you lose the fuse cover the plug
must not be used until a replacement cover is obtained. A replacement fuse cover can be obtained from your local dealer.
If the fitted moulded plug is unsuitable for your socket outlet, then the fuse shall be removed and the plug cut off and disposed of
safely. There is a danger of severe electrical shock if the cut off plug is inserted into any 13 amp socket.
If a new plug is to be fitted, please observe the wiring code as shown below. If in any doubt, please consult a qualified electrician.

Features
• Quick response power supply circuit
The superior power supply circuit adopted by
this unit achieves vastly improved response by
employing ‘no feedback’ circuitry and low
impedance parallel main capacitors
characteristicly used in professional audio
monitoring.
• Low jitter clock
This unit provides extremely stable, low jitter
clock streams through the use of an integrated
circuit with a high performance oscillator.
• Legato Link Conversion Pro and Hi-Bit
Pioneer’s unique Legato Link Conversion
system restores high-frequency dynamics lost
in the digital recording process, to fully
reproduce all the shading and detail of the
original musical performance. This results in a
minimum amount of phase shift across the
entire hearable audio spectrum.
• Twin D/A converter 192 kHz/24-bit
The on-board Twin Wolfson 192 kHz/24-bit
DAC means that this player is fully capable of
delivering exceptional sound quality in terms of
dynamic range, low-level resolution and high-
frequency detail.
• Pure Audio listening
The Pure Audio feature allows you to listen to
analog audio sources with the digital outputs
disabled, and the front panel display switched
off.
• Fine-tuned to world-class standards
With the cooperation of the world-class studio
engineers at AIR Studios, this player has been
AIR Studios certified.

Connecting up
Connecting to an amplifier
You can connect this player to your amplifier or
receiver using the analog outputs or one of the
digital outputs.
If you connect using one of the digital outputs,
you should also connect the 2 channel analog
outputs for compatibility with all discs.
1 Connect the analog LINE OUT jacks on this
player to a set of analog audio inputs on your
amplifier.
2 Connect one of the digital outputs to the
corresponding digital input on your amplifier.
For an optical connection, use an optical cable
(not supplied) to connect the OPTICAL
DIGITAL OUT jack to an optical input on your
amplifier.
For a coaxial connection, use a coaxial cable
(not supplied) to connect the COAXIAL
DIGITAL OUT jack to a coaxial input on your
amplifier.
• Note that SACD audio is not output
through these jacks, so this connection
should be in addition to, rather than
instead of, an analog connection.
Using the remote sensor of
another Pioneer component
Many Pioneer components have SR CONTROL
jacks which can be used to link components
together. This allows you to use the remote
sensor of just one component, which is useful
if you want to put several components out of
view (for example, in a closed shelf space).
When you use a remote control, the control
signal is passed along the chain to the
appropriate component.1
• Note that if you use this feature, make sure
that you also have at least one set of analog
audio jacks connected to another
component for grounding purposes.
1 Decide which component you want to use
the remote sensor of.
When you want to control any component in
the chain, this is the remote sensor at which
you’ll point the corresponding remote control.

Other settings and features
Listening to Pure Audio
This unit has been specially designed to
provide you the truest possible reproduction of
recorded audio. When the Pure Audio feature
is selected, the front panel display is switched
off and the digital outputs are disabled, leaving
you with the pure sound source.
• Press PURE AUDIO to switch Pure Audio
listening on or off.
The PURE AUDIO indicator on the front panel
lights to indicate Pure Audio listening is on.
Using the SACD Setup
Hybrid SACD discs include a conventional CD
layer along with the high-resolution SACD
layer, so it is necessary to indicate to the player
which layer you want to listen to. Use the SACD
Setup to do this.1
• When the disc is stopped, press SACD
SETUP to switch between the CD area and
the SACD area of a hybrid disc.
Using Legato Link Pro
For as great as CDs sound, the digital
recording process clips off important musical
shadings and nuances above 20 kHz. These
signals contain important clues about musical
texture and shape that define a live musical
event. Pioneer’s Legato Link Pro Conversion
system uses psychoacoustic processing to
restore missing high frequency dynamics to
fully recapture all the shading and detail of the
original performance.
• Press LEGATO LINK to switch Legato Link
Pro Conversion on or off.
The LEGATO lights in the display to indicate
Legato Link Pro Conversion is on.
Dimming the display
You can choose one of three brightness
settings for the front panel display.
• Press DIMMER to switch between
brightness settings for the display.
Select between light, dark or backlight off.
Displaying disc information
Various track information, such as the elapsed
and remaining playing time can be displayed
while a disc is playing.2
• To switch the information displayed,
press TIME repeatedly.
Note
1 Note that this player is not compatible with multichannel SACD discs.
2 With data discs, MP3/WMA filenames are displayed (up to eight characters). Note that some characters may not display
correctly.

Hints on installation
We want you to enjoy using this product for
years to come, so please use the following
guidelines when choosing a suitable location:
Do...
• Use in a well-ventilated room.
• Place on a solid, flat, level surface, such as
a table, shelf or stereo rack.
Don’t...
• Use in a place exposed to high
temperatures or humidity, including near
radiators and other heat-generating
appliances.
• Place on a window sill or a place where the
player will be exposed to direct sunlight.
• Use in an excessively dusty or damp
environment.
• Place directly on top of an amplifier, or
other component in your stereo system
that becomes hot in use.
• Use near a television or monitor as you may
experience interference — especially if the
television uses an indoor antenna.
• Use in a kitchen or other room where the
player may be exposed to smoke or steam.
• Use on a thick rug or carpet, or cover with
cloth — this may prevent proper cooling of
the unit.
• Place on an unstable surface, or one that is
not large enough to support all four of the
unit’s feet.
Taking care of your player and
discs
General
Hold discs by the edge or by the center hole
and edge.
When you’re not using a disc, return it to its
case and store upright. Avoid leaving discs in
excessively cold, humid, or hot environments
(including under direct sunlight).
Don’t glue paper or put stickers on to discs. Do
not use a pencil, ball-point pen or other sharp-
tipped writing instrument to write on the disc.
Don’t use self-adhesive disc labels on discs as
these can cause the disc to warp slightly
during playback causing distortion in the
sound.
Damaged and shaped discs
Do not use cracked, chipped, warped, or
otherwise damaged discs as they may damage
the player.

En
This player is designed to be used only with
conventional, fully circular discs. Do not use
shaped discs. Pioneer disclaims all liability
arising in connection with the use of shaped
discs.
Cleaning discs
Fingerprints and dust on discs can affect
playback performance. Clean using a soft, dry
cloth, wiping the disc lightly from the center to
the outside edge as shown below.
If necessary, use a cloth soaked in alcohol, or a
commercially available CD/DVD cleaning kit to
clean a disc more thoroughly. Never use
benzine, thinner or other cleaning agents,
including products designed for cleaning vinyl
records.
Cleaning the unit’s exterior
Unplug the unit before cleaning.
Use a dry cloth to wipe off dust and dirt. If the
surfaces are very dirty, wipe with a soft cloth
dipped in some neutral cleanser diluted five or
six times with water and wrung out well, then
wipe again with a dry cloth.
Do not use furniture wax or cleaners. Never use
thinners, benzine or insecticide sprays or other
chemicals on or near this unit.
If you use a chemical-impregnated cleaning
cloth, read the instructions carefully before
use. These cloths may leave smear marks on
half-mirror finish surfaces; if this happens,
finish with a dry cloth.
Cleaning the pickup lens
The player’s lens should not become dirty in
normal use, but if for some reason it should
malfunction due to dust or dirt, consult your
nearest Pioneer-authorized service center. We
do not recommend using commercially
available lens cleaners for CD players.
Condensation
Condensation may form inside the player if it is
brought into a warm room from outside, or if
the temperature of the room rises quickly.
Although the condensation won’t damage the
player, it may temporarily impair its
performance. Leave it to adjust to the warmer
temperature for about an hour before
switching on.
Moving the player
If you need to move the player, first switch the
unit into standby (press  on the remote), then
unplug the power cable. Never lift or move the
unit during playback — discs rotate at a high
speed and may be damaged.

Problem Remedy
The disc won’t play or is
automatically ejected
after loading.
• Make sure the disc is free from dirt and dust and is not damaged (page 15).
• Check Disc/content format playback compatibility on page 7 to confirm that the
disc is compatible with this player.
• Make sure the disc is loaded with the label side face-up and aligned properly
in the disc tray guide.
• Condensation inside the player: Allow time for condensation to evaporate.
Avoid using the player near an air-conditioning unit.
The remote control
doesn’t seem to work.
• The remote control is too far from the player, or the angle with the remote
sensor is too wide: Use the remote within its operating range (page 11).
• If you’re trying to switch on using the remote control, make sure the front
panel POWER button is switched on first.
• The battery is exhausted: Replace the lithium battery (page 6).
No audio, or audio is
distorted.
• Check that the disc is not damaged, and free from dust and dirt (page 15).
• Check that all interconnects are firmly inserted.
• Check that the plugs and terminals are free of dirt, oxide, etc. and clean if
necessary. Also check the cable for damage.
• Make sure the player’s output is not connected to the amplifier’s phono
(turntable) inputs.

settings, etc.).
The analog audio is OK,
but there appears to be
no digital audio signal.
• Make sure that Pure Audio feature is switched off (page 14).
• SACDs do not output digital audio. The signal is heard through the player’s
analog audio outputs.
Noticeable difference in
SACD and CD volume.
• This is due to differences in the audio format and is not a malfunction.
Cannot play
multichannel audio.
• This player is not compatible with multichannel audio.
Settings are erased. • If you have switched the unit off (using the front panel POWER button) for
more than 30 days, all settings will be erased.
