update 21 Dec. 2012: Firmware update to enable gapless playback.
Audiophile-level Class D amplification brings you unprecedented power output. Short signal paths ensure impeccable sound and efficient cooling provides superior performance with lower power consumption (-44% vs Analogue Amps). Now with 4-16Ω speaker support.
Built for tomorrow's HD technology
Experience real definition with the latest 4K HDTV specification for ultra-high resolution video. 4K Pass Through ensures you have the most up-to-date technology to take advantage of advanced digital formats.
Play lossless digital music files from USB
USB DAC (Digital Analogue Converter) lets you bypass your PC's DAC in favour of your receiver's higher grade internal DAC and transforms your FLAC and WAV music files into the purest audio possible.
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.
