Super Immersive Viewing
HDMI 2.1 supports a range of video resolutions including 8K60, 4K120 and Dynamic HDR. Combine that with 60Hz refresh rates for smooth and sharp playback, even for high-speed action.
All Encompassing Sound
With or without upfiring speakers, E-ARC (Enhanced Audio Return Channel) simplifies connectivity and supports the latest high-bitrate audio formats including Dolby Atmos®, DTS-HD Master Audio™, DTS:X® and Dolby TrueHD. Say hello to lifelike, object-oriented sound in smooth, curving movements or realistic overhead height effects.
Pristine Listening, Any Room
State-of-the-art Dirac Live room correction technology takes the room out of the equation and unlocks your loudspeakers’ full potential—no upgrade required. It automatically calibrates sound to the room using either a smartphone + the included wired mic or the Dirac Live PC/MacOS app + a 3rd party USB mic (not included). You’ll get a more accurate measurement of your surround sound positioning and more precise and balanced sound overall.
Auto Room Tuning
Pioneer’s Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration System (MCACC) automatically adjusts sound according to your listening area and speakers by suppressing the standing waves that occur between walls or ceiling and the floor. Additionally, Auto Phase Control Plus makes real-time analysis of the phase difference and automatically compensates for the gap, resulting in strong bass and clear high-frequency sound.
Now, Bluetooth connectivity is even better with bi-directional Bluetooth. Stream from your device to the AVR using SBC or AAC codecs, or transmit audio playing through the AVR to compatible wireless headphones. This is great news if you want to stream from your phone or for the gamer in your life…or maybe for the person who doesn’t want to hear what their gamer is playing.
With access to several streaming services like Works with Sonos, Chromecast built-in™, AirPlay 2, DTS Play-Fi®, Spotify®, Amazon Music, Pandora®, TIDAL, Deezer and TuneIn you won’t run out of music.
