Pioneer VSX-816 7.1-Channel A/V Receiver


For years, Pioneer has offered both standard- series AVRs, thought to offer good value for money, and more expensive Elite-series models targeted toward performance-minded enthusiasts. Recently, Pioneer surprised us by replacing its entire standard AVR...

The VSX-816 offers a user interface and remote control that are well thought out. The VSX-816’s sheer performance per dollar is just remarkable. Highly recommended. TPV

Product Specifications

The VSX-816-S is the perfect choice for a small to medium sized home theater. With 7 channels of high powered amplification you can feel free to turn up the volume and immerse yourself in the 3 dimensional surround sound experiences of today's DVD movies, music, games, PC audio, and High-Definition TV. Auto MCACC (Multi Channel Acoustic Calibration) ensures easy set-up and multi-channel accuracy. First, it "listens" with the supplied room calibration microphone, to how well your speakers and room "get along"; then it makes adjustments to ensure that sound from each speaker is reaching your ears at the same time and same volume. As to any "issues" your speakers and room may have, Auto MCACC applies professional level acoustic equalization "therapy" to each speaker, ensuring you hear the "real" soundtrack. Three component video inputs provide high-definition and progressive scan video switching.
