Pioneer VSX-2016AV review


Home cinema multi-channel receiver that aint too shabby

Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration for setting it up to your specific environment ; Cool iPod dock feature ; Solid audio

Complex button setup ; Video upconversion could be better

An excellent multi-channel receiver that's hard to fault

Pioneer VSX-2016AV


With its impressive specs, the Pioneer VSX-2016AV easily justifies its price. It has HDMI in/outs along with useful touches like a custom iPod input with connection lead, a front panel USB input and a second zone for extra rear channels

Product Specifications

With an HDMI interface (ready for both DVD Audio and SACD), the VSX-2016AV is also fully compatible with your iPod, with a connector included. A distinguishing feature is the system's Advanced MCACC capability, which not only calibrates and optimizes the sound output for your home environment, but also neutralizes the effects of reverberation - which enables even more accurate tonal measurement and calibration of the frequency balance. Precision tuning of your home system with minimum effort. You can expect the best possible sound reproduction using 7 channels, whether you're watching, listening or playing. With THX Select2 and THX Surround EX certification, the receiver also supports all the latest surround sound formats. The VSX-2016AV gives you Standing Wave Control (which reduces the standing waves in your room, giving reproduction of low frequencies truer than ever) and Basic Phase Control, which minimizes any phase mismatching, calibrating the delay and aligning the phase precisely, to match it for all channels and achieve advanced levels of sonic purity.
