Introduction

I was immediately impressed with the Pioneer Elite PDR-19RW as I removed it from its shipping container. This CD-R/CD-RW recorder weighs in at over 14 pounds, much more than the run of the mill CD player. In addition to its heft, indicating a serious power supply and a sturdy chassis, I enjoyed the fine aesthetics, including the well-finished face-plate framed by a likewise handsomely-finished wood side-plate. The PDR-19RW looks the part of Pioneer’s top of the line $1,200 CD recorder and evokes pride of ownership.

The PDR-19RW is chock full of features that allow it to serve as a topnotch single box CD player, in addition to its obvious use as a recording device. Its recording features include synchronized copying by track or entire disc, a sampling frequency converter to allow copies from digital sources other than CD, coaxial and optical inputs, and many other indexing and editing features too numerous to list here. The unit also features automatic level recording for analog sources, a handy feature for those wanting to convert their cassettes to CD. Additionally, the PDR-19RW features Pioneer’s Hi-Bit Legato DACs with 24-bit resolution, an acoustically dampened chassis and high-voltage power supply. Do these esoteric features really make a difference? In a word, yes. As discussed in more detail below, the unit performed fine as a recorder, but I was really impressed with its playback capabilities

Conclusion
I find the PDR-19RW to be worth its $1,200 price tag, and then some. The PDR-19RW’s real strength is in its playback abilities. If you are looking for a topnotch CD player and have another digital source to record from, this unit is well worth examining. If you are looking merely for a unit to make recordings on, you will be missing out on the PDR-19RW. Looking ahead to what the next generation of recording devices will bring us, it may just be possible to combine top-grade recording and playback into one box. The PDR-19RW is already more than halfway there.
