You don't need a big home theater system to experience big sound. Not when you've got this Pioneer® A/V receiver powering your movies, music, sports and games. Even content from your PC or portable audio player sounds truly amazing played through this Pioneer receiver, thanks to Pioneer's new “Sound Retriever” processing. Experience 100 watts across 7 channels for a full-blown surround sound that fills your living room. Configure it to a smaller 5.1 system, and you can still get big-time sound immersion by configuring the two extra surround-back amps for extra up-front wattage (bi-amp speakers required). Either way, your entertainment will envelop you in one of nine advanced surround modes, including DTS®-ES Discrete, DTS 96/24, DTS Neo:6, and Dolby® Digital EX, as well as Dolby Pro Logic® IIx. Available in black (K) or silver (S).

Built for sound

Incredible processing power means everything sounds better on this Pioneer receiver. The new Freescale™ 180MIPS Processing DSP, coupled with Pioneer's Sound Retriever, delivers compressed audio formats like MP3s, with CD richness. The ultra-efficient single-circuit design includes the Pioneer Hybrid Amplifier with Thermal Compensation Transistor, engineered to monitor and correct heat variations that can distort audio. So your sound stays cleaner, crisper, longer. Even when you play it louder.
