A/V Receiver

This powerhouse A/V receiver answers all your needs for 6-channel surround sound. Its repertoire includes decoding/processing support for all existing surround formats: DTS 96/24, Dolby Digital EX, DTS ES, Dolby Pro Logic II, and DTS NEO:6, thanks to the Pioneer original “Digital Core Engine” with Motorola 48-bit processing (double precision) DSP. Moreover, it features unique Dual Surround Back capability, which lets you connect two speakers for an enhanced surround effect with the latest 6.1-channel formats. It is designed with Manual MCACC Set-up — a user-friendly and very precise method for setting speaker delay and channel level. Just use the full-featured remote to control the Advanced Quick Set-up Operation: after the automatic subwoofer detection, enter your speaker arrangement, room size and preferred listening position and you're ready for a true home cinema experience, adjusted to your living room environment. This receiver comes equipped with Pioneer's Advanced Surround modes, including Virtual Surround Back to create the impression of a real surround back speaker when listening to sources with a surround channel using a 5.1 speaker installation, and Phones Surround which lets you enjoy surround sound for headphone listening. With 7.1-channel input terminals, the amplifier enables connection to a DVD player capable of playing high fidelity multi-channel DVD-Audio and SACD discs. A last note, Pioneer engineers integrated a “direct construction” internal design that eliminates unwanted electrical noise and interference for more accurate sound and images.
