PIONEER VSX-932 – 7.1-channel receiver with 7×130 watts, full-range streaming, Dolby Atmos and dts:X, 4K Ultra HD, video scaler, 4 HDMI ports, HDCP 2.2, high resolution audio playback, dual-band WiFi & Bluetooth.
The VSX-932 is surprisingly versatile for its price class and supports all current state-of-the-art sound and image formats. With Dolby Atmos, dts:X and Pioneer’s proprietary MCACC automatic calibration, discriminating multi-channel cinema sound can be realised even in acoustically challenging living rooms. All music regardless of the format and storage location finds an optimum way to the system thanks to comprehensive streaming capabilities.
The new entry-level member of the seven-channel class
A receiver that can competently power a complete Dolby Atmos speaker set with front, centre, surround and height speakers as well as two independent subwoofers no longer has to cost a small fortune: the VSX-932 has all required decoders and seven powerful output stages with Pioneer’s exclusive “Direct Energy” technology that minimises electricity consumption and waste heat. Thanks to the “Reflex Optimizer”, it is able to produce a convincing sound experience with a spacious, all-encompassing atmosphere and precise three-dimensionally placed effects, even with the use of indirect projecting Atmos-enabled speakers. In keeping with its comprehensive surround capabilities, the VSX-932 is also equipped with the latest video technology: its four HDMI inputs support 4K/4:4:4/60p/24-bit with the HDR10, Dolby Vision and BT.2020 colour space and dynamics extensions. High-resolution streaming is supported as well: high resolution and DSD support is complemented by the integrated streaming services Tidal, Spotify, Deezer and TuneIn Internet radio. And by WiFi, AirPlay, Bluetooth and, after a future firmware update, integrated Chromecast technology and PlayFi. Since the living room is not the only place for music enjoyment, the VSX-932 with FireConnect can become the centre of a multi-room network that covers the entire house. Suitable multi-room speakers are available from Pioneer and other manufacturers – because FireConnect is a non-proprietary standard and therefore an excellent fit for Pioneer’s policy to consistently offer the best entertainment with maximum freedom in all respects.

WIRELESS MULTI-ROOM AUDIO
This product supports FireConnect™ powered by Blackfire Research. FireConnect™ is a stable wireless protocol that mirrors any audio source connected to a compatible audio product in your main room – from vinyl to streaming audio – on the MRX wireless speaker in another room.
DOLBY ATMOS FOR 3.1.2CH WITH SURROUND ENHANCER
Supports up to 3.1.2ch Dolby Atmos. Surround Enhancer, developed by Dolby Laboratories, Inc., is a virtual speaker technology based on Head-Related Transfer Function (HRTF). With DSP, virtual surround speakers deliver the sound that usually comes from surround speakers. The 3.1.2ch is virtually expanded to 5.1.2ch to create 3D surround sound field. Even those who have difficulty installing rear speakers can also enjoy various audio formats in a wide sound field with Surround Enhancer, as well Dolby Atmos.
DTS:X is the next-generation audio codec from DTS that leverages object-based audio to enable new immersive and interactive audio experiences. Since DTS:X can automatically adapt the audio to the existing channels and speaker system, no specific speaker layout is required. Experience an immersive soundscape with incredibly rich and life-like audio.
When using Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers, high directivity sound from the unit reflects off the ceiling, while low directivity sound directly reaches the ears. The different pathways cause a phase shift, making the sound feel uncomfortable. The Reflex Optimizer which uses the Phase Control technology adjusts this shift, and improves the localisation of the sound image by aligning the frequencies with those of the floor speakers, creating the ideal reproduction environment.
NEXT GENERATION VIDEO STANDARD READY
Supports pass-through for HDR10 and Dolby Vision. By connecting the source device, you can enjoy these latest video standards on a compatible display. What’s more, all HDMI terminals support 4K, BT.2020, and HDCP 2.2, so you will have no problem when upgrading to new devices.
