Pioneer R-500


Pioneer presents a rich and satisfying sound experience, the experience of the R-500.

New sound dynamics and superb transient response are achieved by perfectly matching each component part of the system, beginning with cone paper and reaching clear down to the enclosure, the crossover networks and the magnetic circuits.

Hundreds of hours of severe laboratory testing were invested in the R-500, a fact you'll appreciate all the more when you hear the results.

Frequency range, directionality, transient characteristics, low distortion and, most importantly the indefinable quality of sound itself were taken into careful consideration.

Human hearing was the deciding factor, as your ears will prove.
