Description

Optimised for 4K UHD TV, you can enjoy spectacular sound and vision from the Pioneer VSX831 – plus some of the most comprehensive networking around.

Powerful, Pioneer performance
Taking centre stage in the list of the Pioneer VSX-831’s long list of talents is a powerful ‘Direct Energy’ amplifier. This produces 130 watts per channel (at 6 ohms) to create an effortlessly engaging sound. Combined with the wide range of Dolby and DTS processors, it creates an immersive sound that can’t be matched by TVs or even soundbars.

Hi-Res Audio playback
At the heart of the Pioneer’s digital processing is a top quality AK4458 32 bit/384kHz DAC (Digital to Analogue Convertor). This not only provides a transparent and lifelike sound but also facilitates the playback of High Resolution audio formats. The VSX831 is compatible with a wide range of HD audio formats, including DSD 5.6 MHz and FLAC 192kHz-24-bit for exceptional sound quality.

Google Cast for seamless streaming
New to the Pioneer VSX831 is Google Cast. Using the same technology behind Google’s Chromecast, you can use your mobile device to cast your favourite music, radio, or podcasts to your speakers. You can control the audio from anywhere in your home using Cast-enabled apps running on your personal device, be it iPhone, iPad, Android phone or tablet, Mac or Windows laptop, or Chromebook.

New FireConnect (coming soon!)
Another exciting new feature for the VSX831 is support for FireConnect, Powered by Blackfire. This cutting-edge wireless technology gives multi-source, multi-room interaction between compatible devices, making it simple to set up a wireless multi-room system that also streams HD audio and will include video in the future. With our homes becoming ever ‘smarter’ this is the technology to integrate it all together.

UltraHD, 4K upscaling and HDR support
Helping to make the VSX831 compatible with the very latest tech, Pioneer have sought to meet the highest specifications possible. Not only is it compatible with 4K TV but also the enhanced HDR (High Dynamic Range) tech. Support for HDCP2.2 means you can use it with the latest UHD Blu-ray players, giving stunning levels of picture clarity. ‘Super Resolution’ 4K upscaling lets you upscale standard Blu-rays to a resolution that makes the most of your 4K TV, for even crisper detail.

Wi-Fi with Spotify and AirPlay
Connect via Ethernet or wi-fi to your home network and gain access to a whole new world of entertainment. From here you’ll be able to access a massive range of Internet radio stations plus music services such as the hugely popular Spotify, Deezer and Tidal. There’s also AirPlay, making it easier than ever to stream from your Apple iOS devices, too.

Easy to set-up and use
Despite packing in so much tech, the VSX831 is easy to set-up and use. Pioneer’s unique MCACC (Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration) system tunes the receiver to the size of listening room and speaker placement, at the touch of a button. With a completely overhauled graphics interface, using the VSX831 is easier and more intuitive than ever.

Get the sound that your TV deserves, with the Pioneer VSX831.
