5.1 Channel AV Receiver with 4x HDMI, HD Audio & MCACC speaker setup


Amazing value for money.

The essentials of HD home cinema made affordable: that's the VSX-422. It lets you enjoy immersive 5.1 HD Surround Sound.
Phase Control eliminates lag between the 5 channels and significantly improves multi-channel sound when watching movies.

You can also use it as the centre of your audio setup for gaming or home DJing. With 5 HD inputs including 4 x HDMI, you are equipped for many sources.

True home cinema

Benefit from a lively, sensory experience with 5.1 HD virtual 3D sound. The 5 speakers and powerful subwoofer fill the space with superior quality audio and transform your living area into a genuine home cinema.

Level your sound experience

As volume levels frequently vary depending on your audio source, you often find yourself making manual adjustments to re-calibrate the audio output. The Auto Level Control feature detects the difference and automatically re-aligns the volume level for you.

High-definition audio

Besides Dolby Pro Logic II, the receiver supports Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio so you can enjoy uncompressed, high-definition audio from Blu-ray discs as well.

AM/FM tuner built-in

No need to add an AM/FM tuner component. This receiver comes with a tuner and 30 built-in, pre-set stations so that you can effortlessly enjoy your favourite radio stations.

The latest HDMI technology

This AV receiver can play 3D video from a Blu-ray disc. Other convenient features include an Audio Return Channel for televisions with a built-in DVD player or tuner, for example.

Aligning channels

Phase Control manages the time and phase response of the speakers to minimise the effect of additional sound delays, usually due to the filtering process of multi-channel recordings. By combining our AV receivers and speakers that support Phase Control, multi-channel sound is reproduced faithful to the original source.
