Fully the performance equal of its bigger, badder and better appointed Big Brother-the Elite CT-93. It might be MARGINALLY less immune to RFI/EMI issues because of the scaling back of the 93/95's over-engineering, but if your cables are good (in that respect) and you don't have service entrance ground issues it'll sound identical to the 93 (and comparable to my other Pioneers) and similar to my other reference Naks. (Dragon, 505, DR-1, BX-300) It's another great example of final frontier Pioneer design genius with the added coup de grace last word in dynamic headroom and Noise reduction: Dolby S. Grab 'em and growl.
