Pioneer leading the way in AV receivers

Pioneer will release four new AV receivers in July offering a solution for any consumer. Starting at just $499, the range offers features like HDMI 1.4 for 3D, Bluetooth audio streaming and automatic calibration.

Renowned for its high quality audio products, Pioneer has once again launched a diverse range of AV receivers designed for all sorts of consumers.

The line up consists of the VSX-520 (RRP: $499), VSX-820 (RRP: $699), VSX-920 (RRP: $1099) and VSX-1020 (RRP: $1299).

Tony Trent, group product planning manager at Pioneer Electronics Australia, commented on the new product launch.

“Content is the key, whether it’s in relation to flat panel TVs (3D), the rise in digital music purchases for products like iPhones and Smartphone’s, or the demand for networking in the home,” he said.

“Pioneer has succeeded in releasing an AV receiver range that perfectly complements these emerging audio trends, capable of connecting, networking and controlling  a variety of audio content in the home.”

Some of the standout features across all four models includes HDMI 1.4 for 3D, Bluetooth audio streaming via an adaptor, Blu-ray decoding and automatic calibration.

In addition to this, the VSX-920 and VSX-1020 now have a host of new connectivity and control features never seen in the market before.

iControlAV is a new app that gives iPhone, iPod touch and iPad users the ability to control their AV receiver from the one device. Some features of this include the ability to adjust volume, display audio status, turn on/off proprietary sound enhancements, phase out control, control output balance, adjust dialogue and control bass levels. This app will also be able to control Pioneer’s new Blu-ray players in the future.

Other specifications of the new range include internet radio, 1080p upscaling and Multi-Zone Audio.
