Product Comparison: Pioneer XDP-02U(L) vs Pioneer XDP-30R
- The sound quality is really good, and this device will bring out subtleties within the music which I had not experienced before.
- This is a tiny player with great battery life, incredible portability and great SQ.
- The UI is workable even though it is not as suave as the Android or iOS based devices.
- The sound quality of this DAP is fantastic. It really sings in balanced mode with both DACs and amps in use.
- When it worked it sounded very good, however it was prone to crashing, had a poor UI and was built like a cheap kids toy.
- Compact size that is perfect to carry in your pocket.
- Admired by its user-friendly interface and size.
- It fits perfectly in your pocket and does not bring any trouble in carrying it.
- Size and weight are perfectly balanced so you will enjoy it.
- Very small so you can easily lose this player. But it lies nicely in your hand.
- The item comes with Tunein, Deezer and Tidal preloaded, and I had no difficulty connecting to WiFi.
- I use both micro sd slots with Sandisk 64gb cards without any issues, and they are loaded with Flac files and a few mp3's with no issues.
- The Pioneer XDP-02u sports two sdram slots -- and they work at 400GB -- so this was the first plus feature.
- It has a modified version of Deezer that doesn't allow you to download or store music on the device.
- The Pioneer unit does not have an "auto-shutoff" if idle for more than 5-10 minutes.
- The operation of the player is ok, not the slickest but works well for me. Battery life is ok - I get about 10-12 hours.
- Great sound. Good battery life. Sticky UI. Very plasticy.
- Good battery life when playing native DSD & 192 khz 24 bit.
- UI is okay, plenty of equalizer settings, and amazing battery life.
- Battery life is within my expectations. When driving high impedance headphones, the battery doesn't last long - 3 to 4 hours - because these little amps just keep giving!
