Here's your ideal introduction to the highly connected world of high-definition entertainment. This supremely robust, and surprisingly affordable, Elite A/V receiver puts an array of audio and video sources entirely at your command. Six digital inputs include two HDMI inputs for all-digital, one-cable connections for high-definition 1080p sources, like tomorrow's Blu-Ray Disc® content. Just plug and play, and experience lossless signals without the tangle of wires. This Elite receiver even plays well with older S-Video and composite video, converting both to component video for easy connection to your HDTV or monitor.
Digital content, like you've never experienced before
Home theater isn't just for movies anymore. This Elite receiver delivers digital satellite radio in 5.1 channel surround-sound glory. Enjoy content in XM-HD Surround powered by Neural Audio® via an XM Connect & Play antenna (available separately)*. Or connect this receiver to your iPod® portable player using an IDK-01 dock (available separately) and enjoy your music, photos, and videos through your home entertainment system. And with Pioneer's new patent-pending Sound Retriever technology, compressed audio formats are delivered to your ears in near-CD quality clarity.
This Elite receiver puts you in the center of 110 watts of THX® Select2™-certified surround sound, distributed across as many as seven speakers. Dual 48-bit Freescale® processors are the brains behind all the receiver’s enormous multi-channel sound processing. Eight advanced concert and cinema surround modes, plus Dolby® Digital EX, DTS® ES, and DTS 96/24 decoding, wrap you in incredibly rich, detailed and true-to-life surround sound. Once your multi-channel content leaves the digital processing stage, Pioneer's sixty years of amplifier design and innovation takes over with low-impedance, high-current, Advanced Direct Energy amplifiers to deliver a high-fidelity sonic performance you'll want to hear over and over again.
Home Entertainment: Customized and Automated
To have complete command of your high-definition home entertainment experience, some customization is required. No worries; Pioneer's Advanced Multi-Channel AcoustiC Calibration System (MCACC) with Phase Control automatically calibrates all your connected speakers, recreating unprecedented audio fidelity in your home. Simply place the included microphone in the room's sonic sweet spot, and let Advanced MCACC do the rest. Professional custom installation gets simplified as well. With the help of the Pioneer's Custom Installer on-line resource, RS-232c and IR remote control codes can be easily downloaded to make it simple for custom installers to add and program third party IR receivers, repeaters and touch pad remote controls for multiple components in multiple rooms in the house. So you can play a movie in one room, and listen to music in another — all through your Elite receiver. With a built-in 12-volt trigger, this system can even be configured by your installer to dim the lights when you are ready to watch a movie. At the center of this ultimate home entertainment system: Your Elite receiver.
