Pioneer’s Trio of New Network CD Receiver Systems


Pioneer has announced the release of three Network CD Receiver Systems with speakers. The X-HM76, X-HM76D and X-HM86D support an extensive range of network streaming services including TuneIn, Spotify, TIDAL, DEEZER and Google Cast.

The fascia-mounted 3.5” LCD screen can show album art along with a wide range of information while each model also includes Wi-Fi and AirPlay. High-resolution audio file support includes FLAC/AIFF/WAV up to 24bit/192kHz along with Apple Lossless and DSD up to 11.2 MHz.

The X-HM76 (£430), X-HM76D (£470) and X-HM86D (£650) will all be available during September 2016. The X-HM86D is also available without speakers (XC-HM86D) from select retailers for an SRP of £400.

The X-HM86D tops the range. Packing 65W per channel, its Class D amplifier includes the Clean Ground Design which separates the grounding of the analogue and digital circuits.


Both the X-HM76D and X-HM86D are equipped with a DAB/DAB+ tuner and Internet radio (via TuneIn). Wireless multi-room audio will be supported with FireConnect.

Support is also available for the new Pioneer Remote App, allowing the main unit to be controlled from iPhone/iPad/iPod or Android device. Operations such as volume adjustment, function switching and song selection can be carried out.

The X-HM76 speakers are equipped with a 120mm woofer and 25mm dome tweeter under a gloss finish. The X-HM86D speaker package is equipped with a 130mm fiberglass bass driver.

Equipped with Bluetooth wireless technology, music stored on compatible devices, such as a smartphone or tablet, can be played wirelessly along with a USB input that supports the connection of an HDD.

    Having had my xm76 for a few days i have noticed a slight vibration on the fascia of the unit , this happens in play mode and standby. the unit sits on a three tier glass stand with a 4k lg tv above it and a samsung 4k blu ray below. Could it be placement or just a running in thing .

      Sorry for the delay in replying, David – just returned from holiday: placement would be worth checking. Move it to an alternative position. Look at the fascia and see if anything is slightly disconnected or pulling away from the chassis, look under neath to see if its perfectly level, examine the stand and see if that might be the issue. You may need to experiment and try a variety of angles to track it down. I would be surprised if its a ‘running in’ issue.
