Default Pioneer PD-D9-J Service Manual

I would be very thankful if someone could send me a service manual for this excellent SACD player.

But DIY-ers can bring it to even higher levels

Thanks in advance.

Baki

I am currently looking at players to purchase and modify. I was wondering how this player shaped up vs. the competition at this price point. Also, have you done any mods to the player yet?

For the price I have paid for it (625 EUR) it's difficult to find better player, if any. Build quality is exceptional. And it sounds excellent for the price paid.

There are some mods that could be done but I am still waiting for a while since it's still a brand new (5 months in use).

What I have done so far is a pretty usual stuff: dedicated power cord, spiked (cone) feet, some damping material inside and outside, all in all very beneficial.

I am happy so far. But it can do better, for shure.

That is nice price... around 770EUR listed here in Macedonia - maybe I could drive to Podgorica and pick up one?

What kind of electronics do you have the SACD paired with?

Well,

Vendor actually doesn't have the player in stock but orders it from Belgrade...

Regarding the electronics - LM3886 chipamp, LM4562 based preamp, Vifa Nebula speaker project from PartExpress, VDH cabling...

Baka,

Did you tried any other players at this price and if so how did they compare?

No, with exception of my previous, deeply modified NAD C542.

Unmodified Pioneer is still better.

At least, there is some online information about the player.

2 years later, does anyone have the service manual for this player? I would love to have a copy for reference and to plan some mods.

Hi Bill,
I have pdf schematics of PD-D9-J and PD-D9-Mk2 and could send it to you. What kind of modifications are you planning? I think about adding a zapfilter as output stage and replacing carbon film resistors in the signal path.
The player comes with low 168ps jitter. So, a clock-upgrade is not needed.

Cheers!
Hannes
