Acrobat will usually use the Simulation Profile to display. 

So if your image is in a (large) RGB Space it may be displayed in a (smaller) CMYK Space, even though the pdf contains the RGB data. 

 

Please post screenshots from Photoshop (with the Status Bar set to »Document Profile«) and Acrobat (with the Output Panel visible).

There is no app "Reader DC". There is "Acrobat Reader DC" and "Acrobat Pro DC" - it cannot be both.

Please describe your steps to create. Do you print to PDF? Save as PDF? Convert in Acrobat? Convert in Windows?

Please show screen shots of what you expect, and the lost colour.

That’s fairly big so some clipping is to be expected in separating the image to CMYK. 

What is the Simulation Profile in Acrobat? FOGRA39, US Web Coated, …?

The Status Bar is in Photoshop at the lower left corner of image windows. 

statusBar.jpg

 

Your Simulation Profile is U.S.Web Coated … so the result should look the same as if you converted the RGB to that Space in Photoshop. 

Have you talked to your print provider about theur actual requirements? 

Because »no conversion« and »don’t include profile« make for a dangerous combination.

Printing to a desktop printer like this, you certainly don't want to convert to CMYK at all. Work in RGB, keep profiles. Experiment with printing settings. This printer is sold as an office copier/printer, not something for quality graphics, but experiment and you may get something acceptable. But don't try to go down the same route that someone would go, if they were going to a print provider.

 

In fact, consider why are you making a PDF at all... While PDF is often needed with a print provider, but you can just try printing from Photoshop.

Yes, from Photoshop prints perfectly, but the fact is that my notebooks are printed on both sides of the sheet. So I export all pages to pdf and combine them into one pdf. If photoshop could print on both sides, of course I would do so )
