Connect your Android smartphone with MHL
Stream high-quality video and audio from your Android device using a single cable. Thanks to the MHL-compatible HDMI connection on the front panel, you also can charge your device at any time.
Image optimised for you
Advanced Video Adjust optimises the video signal according to your type of screen or projector. Based on MCACC calibration data, it also adjusts image quality to your distance from the screen.
The additional Stream Smoother will reduce block noise and mosquito noise on lower bit rate video content such as YouTube.
Strong bass & sharp highs
During Blu-ray Disc/CD playback, Auto Phase Control Plus makes a real-time analysis of the phase difference between the LFE (low frequency effect) and the main signals, and automatically compensates the gap. Elimination of phase lag enhances strong bass and clear high-frequency sound.
Less jitter, better audio
Transmission via HDMI can cause clock jitter, resulting in sound distortion during the D/A conversion. PQLS “speed synchronises” the digital audio data between the receiver and your matching Pioneer Blu-ray player, reducing the jitter. The result is clear, rich and precise audio.
Stream with DLNA
DLNA is widely supported on PCs, laptops, smartphones and other devices. As this receiver is DLNA certified, you can easily stream audio from such a device using your home network.
Stream with AirPlay
Apple's AirPlay lets you stream music from any compatible device connected to your home network. This means you can easily enjoy your iTunes music library through your AV receiver.
Always in full control
iControlAV2012 lets you modify all important receiver functions from your smartphone or tablet (iOS / Android).
Featuring Virtual Speakers and PQLS, it even allows you to define EQ frequencies by drawing out 'curves' on your smartphone's touchscreen.
