Highest sound quality from network streams – Pioneer reaches this with feed sources, which work based on the converter software Audirvana Plus. They convert data strems in uncompressed WAV and transmit it to connected audio devices via the net.
+ software takes conversion away from the audio devices
+ higher sound quality of Tidal, Qobuz, local NAS and hard disks
+ direct network connection avoids USB routes
+ network players can replay uncompressed high-res PCM data
+ disturbance impacts are minimized
+ development by Audirvana together with Pioneer/Onkyo
