Pioneer PDR-V500 CD Recorder Compatible
w/ Both CD-R & CD-RW (NEW)
Manufacturer's Model # PDR-V500
List Price: $ 720.00
Over the years, Pioneer
has been at the forefront of the digital revolution and played a leading
role in popularizing such optical disc media as LD, CD and DVD. Following
the favorable market reception of its earlier CD-R (CD recordable) recorders,
Pioneer is now launching the PDR-V500, a machine capable of recording and
playing back both CD-R and CD-RW (CD rewritable) discs as well as conventional
Creation of CD-Compatible Discs
Developed based on Pioneer's audio CD-R recorders, the PDR-V500
is capable of recording onto both CD-R and CD-RW discs. CD-R discs can
be recorded only once but after being finalized can be played back on any
CD player, just like regular CDs. CD-RW discs, on the other hand, can be
erased and re-recorded many times, but can only be played back using a
specially designed player.
CD-R, CD-RW and CD Playback
In addition to its versatile recording capabilities, the PDR-V500
can be used for playback of regular prerecorded CDs as well as CD-R discs
and CD-RW discs, including both finalized and partially recorded discs.
Built-in Sampling Frequency Converter
The PDR-V500 incorporates a sampling rate converter to enable high-quality
recording of direct digital input signals from audio components that use
sampling frequencies other than the standard CD sampling frequency of 44.1
kHz. The recorder does this by converting any sampling frequency between
10kHz and 59kHz to 44.1 kHz.
Digital-Source Synchronized Recording
Pioneer has equipped the PDR-V500 with a variety of digital-source
synchronized recording modes so that when the recorder is connected to
a CD, DAT, MD or DCC player, the recording operation can be set to automatically
start and stop in synchronicity with the playback source equipment. Moreover,
single-track synchronized recording modes are provided to simplify edited
recording from any of the above-mentioned sources.
Z-Concept Employed for Accurate Music Signal Transmission
Audio technology is continuing to advance along the two fronts of
frequency range (X axis) and dynamic range (Y axis) improvement. At the
same time, improvements in respect of signal reproducibility including
signal reading accuracy, precise signal transmission and precise signal
conversion are being pursued along the so-called Z axis or time axis. To
achieve such improvements, Pioneer has devised an in-house design concept
called the Z Concept, which involves the following developments
3-Beam Differential Push-Pull Pickup
A highly rigid chassis reduces the influence
of external vibration on signal reading and writing,
Recording is possible onto CD-R and CD-RW
discs in accordance with the different recording characteristics of these
Warp compensation corrects signals input
from a usually warped digital interface.
The extremely short layout of the output
signal path from the pickup's optoelectric converter section minimizes
the effect of incoming noise.
A multilevel delta sigma DAC is equipped
to ameliorate the clock jitter-induced degradation of sound quality that
occurred with the previously installed 1 -bit DAC. Together, the above
developments minimize waveform distortion, and in particular, time-axis
fluctuation, during waveform transmission, thereby ensuring high sound
quality recording and playback.
Pioneer's newly-developed 3-beam pickup is equipped with a differential
push-pull system that maintains stable operation and ensures rich reproduction
of the medium and low frequencies.
Direct Construction with Minimized Signal Path and Digital/Audio
Direct construction circuitry reduces cross-interference between
signals by achieving accurate signal transfer. Distortion, channel separation
and level linearity values are improved, not at single points but across
a wide frequency range. thereby allowing the reproduction of music signals
with exceptional fidelity.
CD-R and CD-RW discs
CD Recordable digital audio discs are
designed to make a single permanent recording and can be played on all
CD-ReWritable digital audio discs can
be re-recorded many times, but can only be played onCD players equipped
with a multiread function.
Incorporating SCSM (Serial Copy Management System)
SCSM allows you to make one-time-only digital recordings from sources
such as CD and DAT onto a recordable Compact Disc.
