Customize Your Home Theater to YOUR Room

Advanced Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration (MCACC)

Advanced MCACC creates the optimum acoustic environment for movies and music in any room in the house. Pioneer developed the technology over 10 years ago with the help of professional recording studios. The system, complete with custom microphone and subwoofer EQ (New for 2014), automatically compensates for differences in speaker size, level, and distance, and equalizes the response. Whether you’re watching the latest Hollywood blockbuster or listening to high-resolution music, MCACC will make sure your home theater sounds its best.

Subwoofer EQ

Bass Re-Defined

Subwoofer EQ determines the distance and characteristics of your subwoofer, and makes adjustments using four different frequency parameters and an extremely low-latency DSP to reduce phase and timing errors that are often found in other room calibration systems.

On-Screen Overlay

OSD and GUI

If your home theater system is enclosed in a cabinet, it’s often difficult to know the status of certain functions, such as current volume level. With On Screen Display (OSD), your receiver’s basic information, such as volume, input, and surround mode, will overlay on screen as you make adjustments with the remote, so you don’t have to switch to a blank screen background. This feature can also be disabled if you prefer. Meanwhile, the GUI (Graphical User Interface) lets you easily navigate Internet radio and iPod/iPhone contents. Both the OSD and GUI operate via HDMI.

Bluetooth Ready

AS-BT200

The AS-BT200 Bluetooth adapter is a simple solution for adding wireless audio to your home theater system. Using the AS-BT200, simply connect your A2DP profile Bluetooth-enabled device to the port on the back the VSX-80 and enjoy your music wirelessly from your iPhone, Android™, PC, laptop or any other A2DP profile Bluetooth-enabled sources. AS-BT200 is sold separately.
