Pioneer launches powerful 5.1 DVD Home Cinema Systems with Karaoke Function
Pioneer's new home cinema systems are carefully coordinated to reproduce every nuance as it was intended.
Pioneer Europe introduces two new powerful DVD home cinema systems that bring real cinema sound to the comfort of the living room.
A combination of attractive design and solid sound quality, the 5.1 channel satellite-based DCS-222K and tallboy DCS-424K feature:
- DVD upscaling to 1080p,
- USB playback and ripping,
- Flexible speaker formations and 5 Speaker Mode for improved surround sound and louder volume.
- A karaoke scoring and recording function to add that extra element of fun.
For an original cinema experience at home, a sophisticated system of perfectly matched components is essential.
Versatile home entertainment.
Seeing that multimedia entertainment comes in all shapes and sizes, it's good to know that these new DVD home cinema systems are designed to support the most widespread formats.
The DCS-222K and DCS-424K are capable of playing back almost any disc regardless of format and offer compatibility with DivX, JPEG, MP3, and WMA files from both disc and USB.
A front mini-jack input lets users connect their portable audio player, while an easily accessible front USB port makes it even more convenient to enjoy content from USB. Ripping CDs directly to MP3 files on a USB memory device is easy and fast.
Both home cinema systems are equipped to provide endless karaoke entertainment with two microphone inputs for duet singing. Vocals can be recorded onto a USB flash memory while a karaoke scoring function allows the singers to grade their performance.
Powerful and pure surround sound.
Dedication to sound excellence is clearly reflected in these new home cinema systems.
To provide a rich soundscape, both models are equipped with a high power amplifier and internal Dolby Digital decoder, while the
DCS-424 adds a DTS audio decoder. Pioneer's 5 Speaker Mode recreates the 5.1 studio surround sound field that brings film to life by digitally reconfiguring the surround channels for the type of media that's playing.
Downloads, recordings or user-generated content stored on CD or USB can all be enjoyed in outstanding sound quality. The Advanced Sound Retriever function in both models enhances compressed music formats and restores these files to their original quality and richness.
Matching any contemporary flat screen TV with their elegant polished black aesthetics, the systems display a contrast of soft curves and clean lines.
The sleek-looking main unit is also styled in an attractive glossy black finish with a gracefully illuminated volume knob as a focal point.
The new DVD home cinema systems offer various speaker formations to fit any home entertainment space.
- The 5.1 channel DCS-222K is a great choice for anyone looking for a quality home cinema that doesn't dominate a small room. The system consists of five compact satellite speakers for the centre, left, and right front and surrounds, and a subwoofer. Their combined performance is 38 W x 4 + 75 W x 2 (centre and subwoofer).
- Ideal for those looking to make home cinema core to their living space, the 5.1 channel DCS-424K is based around four tallboy speakers plus centre and subwoofer. Their combined performance is 125 W x 4 + 250 W x 2 (centre and subwoofer).
The DCS-222K DVD home cinema system will be available from April 2012 onwards. The DCS-424K will be available in June.
