With fewer moving parts, Pioneer's exclusive center loading device sets a new standard for reliability in mass storage CD changers.
The Elite PD-F27 is powered by a Burr Brown 24-bit conversion system, which employs Pioneer's built-in Hi-Bit processor to deliver improved signal resolution and extremely low noise from standard 16-bit audio CDs. It also features Pioneer Elite's proprietary Legato Link conversion process that restores frequencies, above 20khz, that are lost during the digital recording process. Beautifully finished in Pioneer Elite's trademark Urushi high gloss finish, the Elite PD-F27 features a keyboard input for disc titling, both optical and coaxial digital outputs, CD Text, 10 custom filing modes for user convenience. A second audio link is included allowing a second 301 disc "Giga" changer to be connected and controlled as a slave unit.
