So I turned off all TA and adjusted the levels to be equal left and right and then centered the image using the balance control. So far it is a smoother, easier to liste to sound with and extreme wide soundstage compared to the TA optimized "spot light" in the center of the windshield where most of the sound originated from.
The new sound isn't perfect but I am enjoying it.

I has also been noticing less bass impact- I may need to remove the door covers and see if my woofer screws are loose. My sub screws were definitely loose and tightening them also tightened the bass.
You should be using both balance and TA, they both work together and affect different frequency ranges. You will not get a realistic soundstage with balance alone.

Never thought of using the balance - I assume you referring to one or 2 clicks and no more?

How much balance can be used without it affecting the spectral balance?

The balance is adjusting output levels left to right. You can do this to each speaker, and you should be doing this with each speaker. Localizing high freqencies is dominated by amplitude (phase/TA does almost nothing up high) so if you want to tune tweeters you need to adjust their output and one will almost always be a couple dBs lower than the other. At low frequencies phase dominates, so TA is critical and amplitude has much less of an affect.

Both are important and should be applied to all speakers, but it is far more important to use amplitude up high and phase down low.

Hello Everyone,

I am currently considering purchasing DEX-P99RS headunit and Build simple system with JL audio 600/6 amplifier, Morel Hybrid 605 2-way system and P 25F Focal Sub.

THe question I asked to US Pioneer Customer Support was whether the ehadunit would cooperate with iPhone 7 as a sound source using accessory Pioneer cable with lightning connector. I would like to use iPhone 7 256 GB as from either looseless format from Itunes or using TIDAL app that provides FLAC file access.

The answer was that it does not cooperate with iPhone 7 and that there is no guarantee it will work - it sound as if they have no idea if it will or will not work together.

Could I please ask you folks to try if it would work together?

I am not sure if anyone knows this, but onkyo HF Player for iOS plays a variety of HD music files, including flac. I have tested this player on my P99rs and it indeed is playing FLAC files through my stereo with titles and track control.

The Tidal streaming service doesn't give you access to flac files but a library of high resolution music that you are streaming from there servers. I have done some checking on this service and the consensus seems to be that the quality isn't really worth the extra money you are paying in comparison to the other services out there.

With itunes you aren't using Flac. Itunes isn't compatible with Flac but apple lossless or m4a. What most people do is convert from flac to apple lossless and then upload those files to there ipod or iphone. This can be played on the p99 with no problems whatsoever as far as I know. It plays just fine on my Pioneer 80 deck and it's a fraction of the cost of the p99.

If you want to play FLAC on your P99, Use the Onkyo HF player on the app store. Once you upload all your FLAC files to your Iphone or Ipad in itunes, you can then use the HD feature in the Onkyo HF player to play back FLAC files on your P99rs. I have tested this to work on my own iPhone 6plus. i am not sure about the 7, but if the digital audio protocols are the same to maintain backwards compatibility with sound docks and such, then i imagine the 7 should work on the P99.

I don't really understand how this is possible as the P99 only plays 24/48bitrate as max... FLAC is much higher bitrate...

Somehow I think the Onkyo player reduces the bitrate to be compliant with IOS - I don't think it's true FLAC

Default Re: DEX-P99RS Ongoing Review and Discoveries

to be honest, i am not sure either. but i have one piece of information that kinda proves i am correct. the main reason i tested this was i bought a chord mojo DAC/headphone amp. the chord plays any kind of music file from an ios device using the hf player. this includes DSD files. when playing Hi Res files through the ios device the chord lights upto indicate the bitrate/filetype. So i do know that my iphone outputs the filetype directly to the digital out. If for some reason it changes this scheme for connection to the P99rs, then i have no way to detect that right now. but as of right now it seems i am getting FLAC into my P99rs

I'm using a Vox media player on my iPhone 7 to play 24/96 and 24/192 FLAC tracks to my P99. The P99's 24 bit DACs should be able to use a sample rate up to 48 Khz. The higher sampling rate tracks play just fine. I think the P99 is still using the 24 bits of the FLAC tracks but is down-sampling the rate to 48 Khz. I can hear a difference playing the same song from CD and from a 24/192 FLAC file I downloaded from HD Tracks. The HD track has a larger soundstage and more room between the instruments than the same track from a CD.

I'm waiting on the upcoming Zapco HDR processors that will handle 24/192 FLAC straight in through a wifi connection. Last I heard they are supposed to be out in January or February.

I suppose the acid test is to copy a FLAC file onto USB and see if it will play on a P99 and take the exact same file and play it on the iPhone - if it plays on both - great if not something isn't right on the iPhone...

Has anyone ever tried plugging an Android phone into the P99RS USB input? Is there possibly an app for Android that would make it work? I am getting really tired of iOS 10 crashing so much on my iPhone 6, no wonder Google now has 90% mobile OS market share.

Do you loose SQ when converting FLAC above 24/48 bit rate to WAV format (which 99rs supports)?

I switched back to TA very shortly after running without it. Sounds the best with TA active.
I think my phase interference issue was caused by the crossover settings. I now leave a small gap between the mid bass and midrange crossover frequency- e.g. 630Hz on the midbass, 80oHz on the midrange.

Apartment is empty waiting for the new tenant. Bumping over to the 99RS from an 80PRS. Will be anxious to see how much of a sonic upgrade it will be feeding a signal to the Helix DSP. I suspect as nice as the burr-browns in the 80PRS do, the significant upgrade in DAC's and preamp stage will be instantly noticeable. And also the faceplate and sheer classiness of it. Excited.

With the trends nowadays - just wondering if there will be any use for a P99 in say 3-5 years time...

I mean with the Sony starting things rolling and now Helix DSP PRO2 with a USB input and 32bit dacs.... I doubt any new high end CD player will be released anytime soon...

Me too - I bought the new Sony and tried it side by side with my P99 and I have to say the Sony molested it properly....

Sold the P99 after that.... down side to the Sony is the need for a external DSP which makes the setup nearly twice as much as a P99...
