Product Specifications

The heart of an excellent home theater system is the receiver. Whether it's simply great music you want, or the explosive sound track of an intense flick, Pioneer A/V receivers have the power & processing to make every home entertainment experience real. And Pioneer has been at the forefront of the industry by giving you the first Dolby Surround A/V Receiver, the first Dolby Pro Logic A/V Receiver, and the first Dolby Digital (AC-3) A/V receiver. Pioneer's line up offers high performance, selection, and value, as well as a multitude of connections for compatibility with other components. This receiver features Dolby Digital (AC-3) Decoder that allows you to experience the thrills of today's stunning Hollywood soundtracks right in your family room. By decoding five discrete audio channels, plus a separate subwoofer channel for dynamic low bass performance, Dolby Digital delivers crisp dialogue, breathtaking movement across the soundstage, and thunderous special effects. DTS Digital Decoder DTS (Digital Theater Systems) is an established digital multichannel audio format found mostly in movie theaters. This feature can be found in VSXD309. DTS delivers six (5.1) channels of output sound, offering superior reproduction of DTS-encoded materials ranging from subtle details to the high-powered sound effects. Simulated Surround Sound creates a phantom center channel, expand the front left and right channels and "place" virtual surround speakers around you, simulating the effects of a multichannel system. When reproducing sound through a two- or three- front speaker system, a product equipped with the Virtual 3D Surround system generates amazingly rich and convincing virtual surround sound. Digital AM/FM Stereo Tuner processes FM and AM radio broadcasts digitally, locking in on the signal for less drift and reduced distortion. It also allows for simple storage of station frequencies in convenient presets. Expanded Theater Mode broadens the size of the surround sound field, simulating a much larger space. This feature adds to the "theater-like" feel when watching movies in the comfort of your own home. Audio Digital Signal Processing (DSP) recreates different sonic environments, simulating the acoustics of locations like arenas, churches, and clubs. Playing music through a DSP mode creates a more vivid, life-like listening experience. DSP delivers sounds sculpted to recreate the reflections and reverberations that make live performances so satisfying. Bass + Treble Controls allow you to adjust the bass (lower) and treble (higher) frequencies of the music to your own individual listening tastes. Coaxial Digital Input accepts the pure digital output from another digital product, such as a CD or DVD Player. Subwoofer Preamp Output sends the subwoofer (also know as LFE, or Low Frequency Effects, on Dolby Digital receivers) frequencies to an optional powered subwoofer, enhancing your system bass response and enriching your listening experience. Full Function Remote Control provides complete control of the unit from the comfort and convenience of your chair.
