7.2 Channel AV Receiver with 7x HDMI, AirPlay, DLNA, Jitter Reduction and Auto Phase Control Plus


Direct Energy HD Amplification with Virtual Sound.

This 7.2-channel AV receiver provides 170W continuous output per channel. It offers all the features available in the VSX series combined with the same Audiophile Grade Class D amplification available in the SC models.

Massive power

audiophile level Class D amplification brings you unprecedented power output. Short signal paths ensure impeccable sound, while efficient cooling provides superior performance with lower power consumption (-44% vs analogue amps). Now with 4-16Ω speaker support.

Less jitter, better audio

Transmission via HDMI can cause clock jitter, resulting in sound distortion during the D/A conversion. PQLS “speed synchronises” the digital audio data between the receiver and your matching Pioneer Blu-ray player, reducing the jitter. The result is clear, rich and precise audio.

Strong bass & sharp highs

During Blu-ray Disc/CD playback, Auto Phase Control Plus makes a real-time analysis of the phase difference between the LFE (low frequency effect) and the main signals, and automatically compensates the gap. Elimination of phase lag enhances strong bass and clear high-frequency sound.
