Pioneer Premier DEX-M88?

Anyone remember this one?:

Anyone remember what kind/type of D/A converter it had? Preout strength? Number of preouts? Any other special features? Thanks!

I have a brochure at home with the M88 in it.

I can't remember the type of D/A but I do remember it had something like 4v RCA outputs at a crazy 4ohm impedance.

My biggest worry would be that it's 12+ years old so parts are gonna be tough to get.

Wow thats old. Like 1993 old. Anyways I guess I'll show my true age again (what is it with you and the old gear anyways )

- It was a preout only deck (no internal amp)
- 1-bit D/A converter
- It had changer control

Hope that helps!

This unit was a part of the 1991 line-up.

Best feature with this head unit was that is had an optical input and output.

are you sure about the 4V? as far as I could remember it only has 2V with low impedance output.. and the DAC are 1 bit.

You are probably right Joe. As my foggy brain remembers, the published specs say 2volt with no specified output impedence but in an early issue of Carsound they tested the one in David Navone's car and it was 4v @ 4ohm.

Classic old school overperformance

Again, this is from memory..

The Pioneer literature says 500mV @ 4 ohms.
