Precision you can hear
It's not just high-definition audio that sounds amazing on this Pioneer receiver. The new Freescale™ 180MIPS Processing DSP, coupled with Pioneer's Sound Retriever, brings CD-richness to compressed audio formats like MP3s. Built into a single integrated circuit, the Pioneer Hybrid Amplifier with Thermal Compensation Transistor Design delivers perfect sound precision, despite heat variations. So your sound stays cleaner, crisper, longer. Even when you play it louder.
The prefect listening experience is just a push of a button away. Quick set-up comes with the first advanced Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration Circuit (MCACC). Using a microphone, MCACC automatically measures your room's acoustic environment, then fine tunes the sonic performance of your system. The result is more accurate audio reproduction — just the way the sound engineer intended. And just right for you.
