5.1 Channel AV Receiver with 6x HDMI, AirPlay, DLNA, Remote Control App and vTuner Internet Radio


The coolest iPod/iPhone/iPad add-on is a receiver.

Home cinema in HD and intelligent speaker calibration are just 2 advantages of the VSX-527 AV receiver. What's more, this receiver is the perfect match for your iPod/iPhone/iPad. With the digital connection, you can play both audio and video in high quality.
On top of this you get AirPlay, vTuner Internet Radio, DLNA support and the Pioneer ControlApp for your Android or Apple device.

When you have the Pioneer ControlApp installed on your mobile device, you are now able to stream your own music directly to your wireless speaker without using an additional app.

Digital Direct connection to iPod, iPhone and iPad

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.

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.

Intelligent speaker calibration

Surround speakers can hardly be ideally positioned. MCACC therefore analyses the existing sound field using a microphone (included), just like a sound professional, and adjusts the sound timings to precision-tune the system to your room.
