How do these change over time? What is the difference, for example, between the VSX-827 and the VSX-832 listed? It seems like Pioneers simply ups the number by one every year or so.
Whatever they call it, it's not 9.2.
From what I found out, up until this Receiver all atmos enabeld units had to be 7.1 which when you set it up as an atmos set up with either 2 ceilin mounted atmos speakers or 2 angled front atmos speakers 🔊 it became 5.1.2 . Therfor a Receiver that is atmos enabled would be referred to as 5.1.2 when set up as an atmos speaker arrangement. In reality you take 2 Standard surround speakers away from the normal 7.1 arrangement and either move them to the ceiling or replace them with the angled front atmos speakers leaving you with what’s called 5.1.2 or 5 Standard arrangement surroun sound speaker, 1 subwoofer and 2 Atmos speakres. Pioneer is the first company to get Dolby to approve a standard 5.1 receiver as atmos compatable. So when in the atmos configuration it will be referred to as 3.1.2.
This may be a silly question, but does this contain a pre-amp that would work with a turntable?

This would work just fine with a turntable and also has headphone output too. It has the low level rca type connectors and hdmi.

it does not have a phono in. the rca inputs r line level, so u would need ur own pre-amp or a turntable w/one built in, like the lp-60
The 832 should be more properly styled 5.1.2. the Atmos speakers are upward firing and usually contained in your R/L front speakers. There generally isn't an extra out on the receiver
So the 532 is 5.1 which is not Dolby Atmos compatibel. The 832 is Dolby Atmos enabled so is it a 7.1? My understanding to be Atmos compatable 7.1 is minimum since 7.1 Standard becomes 5.2.1, .2 being taken from the original 7 floor surround speakers and being ceiling mounted. That leaves 5.2.1 or 5 floor surround drivers, .2 being 2 floor channels being changed to 2 ceiling Atmos drivers and 1 being a sub. So is the 832 7.1 or 5.1

Yeah I that was what I was originally asking. Until this Receiver came along and got Dolby s approval, if you wanted atmos you had to get a 7.1 channel Receiver and that could be configured as a 5.1.2 atmos system. But this unit starts as a 5.1 Standard surround sound channel configuration and can become a 3.1.2 atmos. First one to do so. That’s y I was confused.
Not always. You could choose to replace the rear speakers with angled reflecting forward atmos drivers or you could replace the rear speakers with over head ceiling speakers if you wanted. But yes, I believe no matter what atmos configuration u choose, they both replace the rear speakers.
