Home Theater enthusiasts, you have something new to be enthusiastic about. Introducing the Pioneer 7.1-Channel VSX-921-K AV Receiver

As elegant as it is advanced, the Pioneer VSX-921-K delivers amazing home theater performance at a surprising value.

VSX-921 Overview Video

A Comprehensive Apple® Solution

The VSX-921-K is compatible with iPod®, iPhone®, and now iPad® devices and are specifically designed to enhance the experience you get from them. Right out of the box, your receiver comes with a USB/video cable - so there's no need to buy a separate dock to access all your music, videos, streaming content, and photos stored on your Apple devices.

Plus, since your iPhone, iPod and now your iPad charges automatically when connected, it's the ultimate plug-and-play integration with your home theater. You can enjoy music with iTunes® album art, share videos and movies, downloaded TV shows from iTunes, photos, web content such as YouTube® and much more. And because the iPhone device's wireless and network features remain fully functional, music and movies will mute when you receive an incoming call. And you've got lots of control options--use the Apple device directly, or push a single button on the VSX-921's front panel to switch control to the included preset remote and an intuitive on-screen menu.

Apple LifeStyle

Portable Device - Meet Home Theater

The VSX-921-K is fully ready for wireless Bluetooth® audio from virtually any A2DP profile Bluetooth device, including smartphones, laptops, etc. With the Pioneer AS-BT200 Bluetooth adapter, you can unleash yourself from headphones, cables and inputs. And you'll enjoy near cd-quality with Sound Retriever AIR technology, created specifically to enhance Bluetooth audio.


Ultimate Sound Control

Of course all the latest Pioneer receivers support the high-definition audio formats, Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD® Master Audio to give your Blu-ray Disc® soundtracks unsurpassed audio quality. But Pioneer also includes all of the Dolby and DTS surround formats best suited for the wide variety of entertainment sources, including the newest Dolby Pro Logic IIz height channel.

Pioneer's exclusive Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration system (MCACC) provides a near studio-quality, multi-channel listening experience customized specifically to your listening environment. An included microphone measures every speaker's connection, and notes its size, distance from the listening point, sound levels and timbre to calibrate and maximize performance.

Even compressed audio such as WMA, MP3 and AAC is enhanced with another Pioneer exclusive, Advanced Sound Retriever, by filling in areas where minute details were left out during the compression process.

And since the only thing that should shock you is how good it sounds, there's also an Auto Level Control that eliminates jarring volume changes between your favorite songs, albums and audio sources by equalizing volume differences between portable audio tracks or television programming.


Ready for 3D? You are with the Latest HDMI® Technology

All of Pioneer's newest receivers support the latest HDMI 1.4a specification. So not only do you get the most out of your existing movies and music, with the VSX-921-K you're prepared for the next generation of 3D video content. With 4 HDMI inputs, you've got plenty of connectivity options for the growing number of high-definition sources available. All Pioneer receivers also offer advanced HDMI conveniences like Audio Return Channel and Power Save HDMI Standby Through.


Spectacular 1080p High-definition Video

With Anchor Bay® video processing, the VSX-921 converts analog video sources to HDMI for one-wire high definition convenience. For lower resolution video, advanced video processing lets you upscale your picture to digital 1080p to best match the native resolution of your HDTV. With the VSX-921's superior video processing, you know the picture will be stunning, regardless of the source.


On-Screen Display

The VSX-921-K features an intuitive on-screen display for use with the included preset remote, so you can make guided adjustments to your home theater sound.
