Clear Audio With the Latest Dolby Technologies

If you're looking for a high-end AV receiver to complete your home entertainment system, the Pioneer Elite VSX Series AV receivers have you covered. Featuring Dolby Atmos, each model reproduces object-oriented sound in smooth, curving movements for an immersive experience. With next-generation DTS: X technology, the receiver automatically adapts audio to existing channels with no specific speaker layout required, so you get rich, lifelike sound without the hassle. Additionally, it supports passthrough for HDCP 2.2, so you can enjoy 4K video without worrying about upgrading devices in the future. Built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth give you different ways to connect and stream apps like Pandora, Spotify, and VTuner. Integrated Chromecast allows you to use your smartphone or tablet to stream music. Finally, the MCACC Auto Room Tuning system lets you create the ideal acoustic environment, automatically compensating for differences in speaker size, level, and distance by equalizing the response for each.
