Ein Einblick in den amerikanischen Military-Prospekt von Pioneer (Juni 1987) kommt hier

PIONEER 1987
Das Bild soll sicher digitales Audio-Video assoziieren, aber das ist schwer .....
Die Ansprechpartner in Europa
Hier die US-Verkaufsstellen - damals

Dieser Spezial-Prospekt wurde ganz gezielt für die US-Soldaten und natürlich auch für die verbündeten Briten und Franzosen und Australier und Kanadier gemacht. Der Militärmarkt der tellweise sehr gelangweilten Soldaten und Angehörigen war nicht zu vernachlässigen.

Die US-Regierung bzw. die US-Militär-Administration unterstützte das Ganze auch mit einigen Tricks, um den um sich greifenden Rauschgift-Consum innerhalb der Armee und der Luftwaffe zu bekämpfen.

Die hier aufgeführten Audio- und Video-Produkte gab es fast nur in Japan, den USA und weltweit in speziellen Militäry-Shops. Diese Produkt-Typen wurden auf dem deutschen Markt nicht oder nur in Ausnahmen angeboten.

Solche Militär-Läden waren pseudo Military Shops oder Einrichtungen. Die amerikanischen "Audio-Clubs" durften nur beliefert werden, wenn die Preisfindungs-Regeln eingehalten wurden. Das bedeutete maximal 10% Aufschlag auf die "landed costs" ohne jeden Zoll und ohne jede Steuer. Damit war weder ein Importeur noch ein Vertrieb/Großhändler noch ein Einzelhändler in der Preisfindung "eingebunden".

Die US-Shops mußten den Gewinn ausschließlich und nachweislich für gemeinnützige soziale Zwecke innerhalb der US-Lokalität / Garnison verwenden. So entstand zum Beispiel der größte dieser Audio-Clubs hier in Wiesbaden im Stadtteil Mainz-Kastel.

Das war ein beeindruckendes Riesen-Hifi-Studio, eine große mehrstöckige Kaserne mit sehr sehr vielen einzelnen Räumen, welche personell von den Herstellern betreut wurden. Und dort gab es alles, wirklich alles, viel viel mehr als in diesem Prospekt zu sehen ist.

Ich durfte dort nur einmal reinschaun, etwas später wurde auch "die Mitnahme" von deutschen Gästen (Besuchern) zusammen mit US-Soldaten beendet.

Die Zielgruppe sind/waren die jungen Amerikaner

Bei der Auswahl der gezeigten und beworbenen Produkte sind natürlich die jungen amerikanischen Soldaten im Fokus der Werbesprüche. Und in Amerika werden die jungen Leute von ganz früh an auf "Value" getrimmt. "Value" wird dabei im Sinne von "billig - billiger - am billigsten" verstanden. -

Bei uns gibt es da noch eine Diversifikation - genannt "preiswert". Aber auch hier bei uns in Deutschland wissen die Martkforscher, wenn irgendwo etwas von "Rabatt" oder "Discount" drauf steht, ist das Produkt so gut wie ausverkauft. In den US-Supermärkten gibt es Käse und Wurst mit der Aufschrift "value". Das ist dann die unterste Preiskategorie.
Die jetzt folgenden Modelle und Typen finden Sie auch fast nicht in irgendwelchen Europa-Prospekten von Pioneer. Sie müssen die Optik und die Specs schon ganz sorgfältig und genau vergleichen, um ähnliche Produkte zu identifizieren.

HIGH-FIDELITY HOME-ENTERTAINMENT

Audio & Video - Components & Systems

HI-FI & AV
The Future of Sound and Vision - Now!

Sure, technology in hi-fi audio-video is progressing a fantastic pace, and will certainly be more advanced tomorrow than it is today. But now is the time to buy. Why? Because the two most important innovations in the field - digital and laser - already have been introduced, and Pioneer already has put them to miraculous use in products with unparalleled performance, convenience and versatility.

In the following pages you will learn about our wide lineup of home-entertainment components and systems and some of the awesome things they can do - like deliver flawless, dynamic sound and picture-perfect visual reproduction. And while you're at it, you can learn how they do it, since we've given a basic technical explanation of all the "secrets" they contain, detailing many of the Pioneer-original digital and laser technologies that no one else can offer.

Yes, this is the time to make your buying decision, and make it on Pioneer, because it's our dedication to digital and laser technologies that brings you the future of sound and vision - now!
.

How "Hi" Is the "Fi"?

What is "hi-fi", after all? It's merely the concept of reproducing music with a high degree of fidelity to the original sound source. But, ah! How much fidelity do you really need before the sound resembles what you'd hear at a live concert or recital? Some would say the answer is found in the final listening. True. But it's also in the knowhow and, above all, the craftsmanship that go into a hi-fi component that determine whether it can recreate the thrill of "natural" sound. At Pioneer, we don't depend on electronic wizardry alone to overcome the barriers to faithful sound reproduction. Yes, we are known in the hi-fi field for our advanced and original technology. But far more rewarding to us is our reputation for putting that technology to work to make every Pioneer amplifier, tuner, CD player, cassette deck, turntable and speaker system the best it can be in terms of actual performance and user convenience. That's what "hi-fi" means to us - and when you enjoy the meaningful experience of hearing a Pioneer hi-fi product, you'll understand.

Compact Disc Players

.
All CD players do not sound alike, and Pioneer proves it. We've perfected very special techniques of eliminating sound-spoiling resonance, of reducing the need for electronic compensation of mistracking, and of converting digital data into the full drama and excitement for which CD sound is famed. All CD players aren't the same when it comes to convenience, either. And that's why we're offering six different models - three "PD-Ms" with multiplay - so you can choose the one you need.

.

Pioneer Invented 6-Disc "Multiplay" CD

That's right! Ours was the world's very first player of this type for consumer use. And, thanks to the knowhow we've acquired, we still lead the field. Benefits of multiplay are many, ranging from the convenience of six-disc ("6-pack") magazine loading to the luxury of seven hours twelve minutes of uninterrupted playback. Along the way are practical things like 32-track programming from all six discs, numerous repeat and others, and RANDOM PLAY in which a microcomputer selects the playlist from all loaded discs, or from only those programmed.

Anmerkung : Aber kein Wort davon, daß die Kiste beim Wechseln ganz fürchterlich rappelt.
.

For the Armchair Audiophile

Pioneer CD players with the "SR" mark come with a multifunctional Remote Control that puts all player functions at your fingertips. Also, be sure to check out the special MPSS* (Magazine Program Selection System) function of the Remote Control for the PD-M90X. Using the Remote Control anywhere, you can program up to 80 entries (selections and pauses) for eight "6-packs," push a button to transfer the program to the main unit, then sit back to enjoy the music. The controller has a display (see photo) to make programming and play easier.

Now, the Technical News

High-tech is more than just a highfalutin phrase in Pioneer CD. For example, we use the latest Digital Filter technology. Distortion is lower (weniger als was bitte ?), sound imaging is better (besser als was bitte ?), and thanks to the technique called "oversampling," frequency response is nearly ruler flat up to 20,000Hz. In the PD-7050, "4X Oversampling" means even less phase and harmonic distortion.

Kicking Out the Bad Vibes

One of the "miracles" of CD is electronic error correction of imperfect (or mistracked) discs. But this isn't always a good thing - especially when the microchips used in this clean-up process themselves emit RF (radio-frequency) vibes that can (and do!) interfere with the sound after it's been converted from digital to analog.

The surest way to get clean signals, therefore, is to reduce tracking errors in the first place. Toward this end, we've adopted an Anti-Vibration Design Policy for our CD players, and it consists of three important steps:

• First, we reduce disc vibration where it is strongest - right where the disc meets the spindle of the high-speed motor. Our New Disc Stabilizer clamps the disc magnetically to prevent passing on vibration.
• Next, we use a "ballast base" for the pickup. It is fully isolated from the main chassis by ceramic/rubber dampers and lowers the pickup's center of gravity for better stability.
• Then, our own research has led to a ribbed honeycomb construction for the entire player chassis, not only increasing rigidity but also protecting the pickup and drive from vibration generated by speakers and other external influences.

Sound like good ideas? They are -and they work!

Amplifiers & Tuners

.
What do they do, these mysterious black boxes with all the different switches and symbols? It isn't really necessary to understand exactly how they work to enjoy them, but a general understanding of why some work better than others can't hurt, right? So, the following covers a few Pioneer-exclusive technologies and techniques for better performance.
.

Photo B: Honeycomb baseplate and insulators damp vibration in the A-717.

Anti-Vibration & Short-Path Design

Sound is a series of vibrations. Until it is reproduced as soundwaves, it's in the form of rather weak electrical signals which, if exposed to unwanted vibrations or interference inside your amp, tuner or other component, can be easily damaged.

Pioneer's long experience in hi-fi (we'll be 50 in 1988) has led to our "Anti-Vibration" and "Short-Path" design policies, which include some of the following points:

• Honeycomb Stiffeners: As in our latest CD players and other components, the Pioneer amplifiers and tuners introduced in this catalog make use of a new, ribbed "honeycomb" design in the materials used in key points - such as the chassis, chassis separators, heat sinks, etc. It increases rigidity and discourages internal and external vibration.

• Shielded Circuitry: Wherever possible, individual blocks have been separated from their neighbors by thick, diecast aluminum cases, especially where physical and/or electronic/magnetic emissions, such as from the power supply, could endanger sound purity.

• Short-Path Routing: Also wherever pos-sible (even when it means relocating a front-panel switch or two), the working circuits inside each component are positioned so as to shorten the overall length of the path the signals must travel from input to output.
.

Dynamite with Digital!

Photo C: ARTS (Active Real-Time Tracking System): Interference (1) affects tuner performance when a conventional wideband filter is used to maximize the frequency range of the tuned station.
Conversely, distortion (2) can result when a narrowband filter attempts to remove interference.
Both distortion and interference are absent from the tuned signal (3) coming from the ARTS circuitry in the Pioneer F-91

All three Pioneer integrated amplifiers have our exclusive Non-Switching* power outputs, eliminating switching distortion; in the latest Type III version, distortion is further reduced to 1/50 the original value, and thermal distortion is reduced to absolute zero, an important point when low-impedance drive capability is a priority. All three amps also handle the analog sound signals derived from CD and other PCM sources with masterful ease, delivering all the awesome dynamic range and extremely wide frequency response of digital.

In the A-91D, digital design is taken several steps further - resulting in on-board D/A direct digital inputs, including one that permits optical connection, the use of a digital filter having 4x oversampling capabilities to eliminate "loop noise" generated in the harmonics of the sampling frequency, and dedicated glitch-free Twin D/A Converter circuitry that transforms digital signals to analog in the right and left channels independently without phase delay. Non-digital circuits are turned off to prevent interference when digital sources are in play.

In Tune with the Times

Has radio broadcasting improved lately? No, because it's always been good, technically speaking. But only lately have tuners been able to take advantage of the high quality available, and Pioneer technologies such as synthesized tuning in the F-91 and F-551 lead the way. In the F-91 in particular, we use a new Digital Direct Decoder Type III to further enhance performance. In it, the IF output is converted into a digital signal by a pulse converter; because it remains digitized until it is separated into the left and right audio signals, noise and distortion can't touch it. Every tuner specification is dramatically improved (example: the stereo S/N is a high 87dB).

ARTS Cleans Up Your Act

Pioneer's new Active Real-Time Tracing System - ARTS for short - helps the F-91 deliver clean and optimum signal reception. It replaces the "WIDE/NARROW" filtering technique in which the WIDE position provided better sound quality at the expense of selectivity and, conversely, the NARROW position provided better selectivity at the expense of sound quality (see oscillophotos). Using a kind of "servo-filtering," its IF filter circuit "tracks" the tuned frequency in real time, eliminating interference ONLY where it actually exists, thus providing optimum sound quality AND selectivity.

Turning AV into a Class Act

Remember when teacher used to pull down the blinds, dim the lights and crank up that noisy projector? Seeing "How Earthquakes Happen" or "The Persian Empire and Why It Fell" was guaranteed to put us to sleep for the rest of the period. That was called "AV" - which then meant "audio-visual". Exactly when "AV" started to mean "audio-video" and shed its schoolroom image isn't known. But we do know that modern, high-tech AV is and will likely remain the most exciting form of home entertainment (and education, come to think of it) for a long time to
come. With LaserVision (LD), high-quality VCRs, cable-TV and so many other program sources so affordably available today, we are no longer prisoners of "free" broadcast TV. However, it's not enough just to own a little-bit bigger TV or jury-rig the TV audio through your ancient stereo. Needed instead - and what we at Pioneer are dedicated to bringing you - is a whole new array of AV products delivering total AV enjoyment with high fidelity in both audio and video. And that's exactly what the products in the next few pages do - with a big measure of class!

AV Amplifier & Receivers

.

They may look complicated at first, but be assured we've gone to extraordinary lengths to make the operation of these totally AV amps and receivers quite easy and "human." The VSA-910 AV amplifier and the three VSX receivers in these pages all incorporate special video functions. On the audio side, too, special functions are provided to complete the AV concept. Then, with Non-Switching™ Type II outputs and built-in Surround Sound amplifiers and processing circuits in all but the VSX-3000, there's even more to enjoy.
.

Getting the Picture

In addition to versatile audio inputs for CD, Phono, etc., the VSA-910 and all three AV receivers also offer inputs and in/out dubbing circuits for video components, including an LD player and at least two VCRs. They also output a pure video signal to any NTSC-standard monitor for display; a 5-pin DIN socket accepts an optional RF modulator (JA-RF5) to send a composite video/audio signal to a conventional TV's tuner.

What You See Is What You Choose

A handy feature called a "Video Selector" is provided on all Pioneer AV amps/receivers to let you send your choice of video signals to the screen, regardless of what audio you are hearing - a real convenience when viewing or recording a simulcast, or when creating your own "after-recording" or composite videos.

Don't Like It? Enhance It!

The most-often used technique to improve picture quality is called "enhancing," which boosts the brightness for better viewing. Variable enhancing is possible both during direct viewing and dubbing in the VSX-50007 4000(BK) and VSA-910. Moreover, in all three components it combines with Split-Screen to display, if you wish, the non-enhanced picture on one half of your screen, the enhanced one on the other half.

The Sensation of Surround

Surround-sound processing, known under various names these days, is the latest AV sensation, and no wonder! Imagine hearing sounds come from the sides, back and even above as you watch the action on the screen - much as in a movie theater or at a concert. "Dolby Surround" is offered in the VSA-910 and VSX-5000 to handle the "real thing" encoded in certain videos, while other Surround, Simulated Stereo and related functions are found on those two components, as well as on the VSX-4000 and VSX-3000 (please refer to specific component) to simulate still other all-encompasing sound fields in your own living room.
.

Tuning Takes Just a Touch

With the accuracy of Quartz-PLL digital synthesized tuning in all three of our AV receivers comes the added convenience of instant recall of 20 of your favorite FM and AM stations. Presetting is especially easy with the Station Call keys on the VSX-5000 and VSX-4000, allowing direct punch-in for station frequencies. You can even assign them four-digit alphanumeric codes, such as POP1, NEWS or JAZZ, shown on the large liquid-crystal display panel every time you recall them. All three Pioneer AV receivers also have direct inputs for Cable-FM leads and presetting.
.

Thanks for the Acoustic Memory

Tone control settings you enter for bass and treble can also be preset in the VSA-910, VSX-5000 and VSX-4000 with the "Acoustic Memory" function. And not just one pair of settings, but three.

Let Your Fingers Do the AV-ing

Integrate any Pioneer amplifier or receiver with other Pioneer audio-video components bearing the "SR" (System Remote) mark and enjoy remote control of the main functions of the equipment shown above from a single "SR" unit. This is particularly convenient with the remote units provided with the VSX-5000 and VSX-4000 audio-video receivers, which are full-function types that include a +/- button for Surround Sound volume. Even more versatile is the "smart" Remote Control included with the VSA-910.
.

  • Anmerkung : Ein damals nach USA zurückkehrender Amerikaner hatte mir seinen VSX-5000 überlassen, denn der hatte nach 2 Jahren schon Aussetzer. Es war eine kalte Lötstelle auf einem Vorverstärker Board. Trotz der gemessenen 2 x 110 Watt Dauerleistung mußte ich feststellen, dieser Receiver klingt bei mir an meinem Boxen einfach nicht - mit oder ohne Klangregelung und mit oder ohne Loudness. Es kostet viel Zeit, herauszufinden, mit welchen Boxen der Receiver wirklich klingt, vielleicht mit japanischen Boxen wie damals bei dem Amerikaner.

LaserVision Players

.

Pioneer's original contributions to the miracle of sound and vision called LaserVision (LD) have raised the performance quality and user convenience of the medium far beyond even the most fanciful expectations.

There is absolutely no other audio/video program source capable of delivering a richer, truer picture or more dynamic and accurate sound to the home user today.

  • Anmerkung : Also das Video-Bild ist jetzt "richer and truer" = reicher und wahrer ??? Was soll das bedeuten ? Wenn man genauer liest und übersetzt, findet man noch viel mehr Unsinn.


Also, like Compact Disc, LD now offers digital sound - yours to enjoy in the LD-838D and CLD-1010. Moreover, the latter model is one of the first in the world to play the very latest CDV (CD with Video) format.
.

How It Works

Die verschiedenen Silber- "Scheiben" von 30cm bis 12cm

LaserVision (LD) is a laser-optical medium which pre-dates CD, and uses a low-voltage laser beam to read the billions of bits of data encoded on a reflective, rapidly spinning disc. That data can be digital (as in the case of the digital sound now available on many LD discs) or analog (as in the case of the sound on both digital and non-digital LDs, and the picture in all LDs and CDVs).
.

Lifetime Fidelity

Perhaps the most important advantage of LD, other than the impressive sound and picture quality, is its non-contact nature - causing absolutely no wear or deterioration of the information on the disc while it is in play.
.

Rapid Random Access

This non-contact system also gives you very, very fast and virtually unlimited access to any part of the recorded program at the touch of a button. The pickup scans the content visually, instead of physically, to give the on-board microprocessors "address" data to find and play the portion you want. In turn, this opens the way to rapid Chapter and Frame/Time Search, Multispeed play, various Repeat and Program functions and much more - available in all three models shown in these pages.
.

The Latest in Laser Tech

What's the laser done for you lately? Just look (and listen!) to discover how it works for you in the all-new LD-838D and CLD-1010 models. The laser-optical pickup in these multitalented machines delivers amazingly beautiful pictures because it has super-fine focus capability, a "piggyback" pickup amp to shorten the signal path and protect picture quality, a CCD Time-Base Corrector to end picture jitter, and many other high-tech Pioneer innovations. These, combined with our strict Anti-Vibration construction policy, give both the LD-838D and the CLD-1010 a superb 400-line horizontal resolution and a very high video signal-to-noise (S/N) ratio - translating into rich and color-correct video reproduction with fine details and deep dimension.
.

Dynamite with Digital

As mentioned above, many LD discs now offer stereo digital sound in addition to analog (FM) compatible audio. Both the new LD-838D and CLD-1010 have on-board D/A (digital-to-analog) decoding circuits to convert the digital data to stereo analog output boasting exactly the same super-fi specs as those from a CD - extremely wide and flat frequency range, virtually no noise or "hiss" at all, and dynamic range approaching that heard "live."

One Laser for Both!

Es stellt sich die Frage, wer von den GIs hatte überhaupt eine Ahnung davon, was dieses Bild aussagt ?

If a laser pickup is used in both CD and LD, why not a player that can handle both? Pioneer took this question seriously, and before long came up with the world's first combination LD/CD player a few years back - and it was an instant success. Now, our third generation component of this type has even more to offer. Included in the technical highlights of the CLD-1010 are a special Magnetic Clamper for CD to prevent the propagation of local vibration to other mechanical and electronic parts, a high-grade Digital Filter to ensure excellent phase characteristics and low distortion over a wide range from digitized audio data, and our own three-spot Linear Servo System overcomes dust, dirt and scratches for accurate CD tracking - adding up to impressive sound quality!
.

Video on a Compact Disc?

Yes, the CLD-1010 also plays the all-new CDV (CD with Video) format. This borrows LD technology to encode up to five minutes of full color, action video program content with dynamic digital sound on a standard- size (Audio-) CD. Since only the outer portion of the disc is used for CDV content, the remainder can contain up to 20 minutes of audio-only digital sound.
.

  • Anmerkung : Ein Flop !! Hier wurde versteckt erklärt, daß die Rotationsgeschwindigkeit der CDV Technik nur auf dem Außenbereich der 12cm Scheibe ausreichend ist. Darum nur 5 Minuten Video in Farbe. Den Rest der CD könne man für Audio nutzen. Es steht halt alles zwischen den Zeilen. und mit 5 Minuten Film war auch diese CDV ein Flop wie die Telefunken TED Bildplatte 10 Jahre vorher auch.

.

CLD-1010 - LaserDisc LD/CD/CDV Player

• Combination LD/CD/CDV Convenience.

.

Wie die CDV funktioniert - "Action Video on CD"

CDV (CD with Video) uses a portion of the billions or so data-bearing pits on the surface of a standard-size CD to store up to five minutes of full color, action video program content with dynamic digital sound.

Since only the outer (last-track) portion of the five-inch (12cm) disc is used for CDV content, the remainder can contain up to 20 minutes of audio-only digital sound.

CDV picture quality is very high, since the system used is identical to the FM-modulated picture of LD. Of course, a 12-inch (30cm) LD disc can contain up to 120 minutes of video, along with full-time digital sound, too. Naturally, CDV discs are compatible for audio-only playback on conventional CD players.

High-Fidelity Monitor/Receivers

.

Not Just "Better TVs"

Which is sharper, the ear or the eye? While it's hard to compare the acuity of our hearing with that of our visual perception, experts generally agree that achieving true high-fidelity reproduction in video is even more vital than in audio. Our eyes see simply everything, without discrimination. Tiny little audio noises and distortions, such as scratches in a favorite old Long Play Records, might be masked or ignored. But their visual counterparts - misfocus, dimness, color jitter, "pin-cushioning," poor resolution and dozens of other forms of video noise and distortion - can be quite distracting - especially when viewing a high-grade video source such as LaserVision (LD) or S-VHS. This is why, when Pioneer boldly entered the field some years ago, we didn't just aim for "better TV sets" but, instead, totally rethought the whole concept of visual high fidelity. Triumphing over many, many obstacles, our success is right before your eyes to see and enjoy in the direct-view and rear-projection Pioneer video monitor/receivers introduced in the next two pages.

Systems: Leave Everything to Us

For most of our half-century in hi-fi we've been a leader in the "System Stereo" concept. It's ideal for folks who want good music, but don't want to bother with one-at-a-time decisions on components. And while we know there's no such thing as a packaged system that will do "everything," the four new Pioneer combinations shown in the next few pages come very close, indeed. Three have total system remote control and all four are designed for attractive looks, easy use and ear-pleasing, quality-balanced listening. Each includes, or can accept inputs from, virtually every major music source around, including CD! And speaking of CD, you can enjoy it from single-disc players, or from Pioneer-exclusive multi-play (six-pack) versions - all designed to match the size, looks and remote-control versatility of the main system. Three of them (SYSTEMS CD90, CD70 and E-2500) are "full-sized" types, complete with custom-designed racks to lend a touch of elegance to your living room or family corner, while the fourth is a free-standing "midi" system, neat and compact for enjoyment anywhere.

Ein bedenkenswerter Nachsatz zu den Glanzzeiten :

Laut Eigenaussage wurden bei Pioneer in Japan in den Glanzzeiten um 1970 herum bis zu 40.000 Receiver - PRO MONAT - hergestellt. Dazu kamen dann die recht erfolgreichen Vollverstärker und Tuner und die analogen Pattenspieler. Dazu kamen die unglaubliche Typenvielfalt der Kassettenrecorder und nach 1983 die CD-Spieler.

Wir sind aber auf unserer Zeitschiene bereits in 1987 und der gigantische Abschwung seit 1979 ist nicht mehr zu verleugnen. Japans Electronic-Giganten mußten tausende Mitarbeiter entlassen und die kleinen Zulieferer bekamen keine Aufträge mehr.

Japan rauschte in ganz große Probleme rein, die 1990 fast zum Staatsbankrott geführt hatten, zum Glück nur beinahe.
