HIGH-def­i­ni­tion, high-res­o­lu­tion, 3D ... these are the catch-phrases in to­day’s ex­cit­ing world of home the­atre, and any man­u­fac­turer of AV equip­ment knows there’s no hold­ing back.

Pi­o­neer Tech­nolo­gies – no slacker in the home the­atre game – prom­ises to trans­form your home the­atre ex­pe­ri­ence. Many AV fans have al­ready made the leap into HD dis­plays, and to com­ple­ment this, Pi­o­neer is en­sur­ing there is sound to match ... HD Au­dio, pre­cisely.

The Ja­panese man­u­fac­turer’s 2010-11 range of AV com­po­nents all in­cor­po­rate HDMI (High-Def­i­ni­tion Mu­si­cal In­ter­face) con­nec­tions for full-dig­i­tal trans­fer of HD Au­dio and up to 1080p video sig­nals. The su­per high bit­stream HD Au­dio trans­mis­sion claims to be iden­ti­cal to stu­dio mas­ter record­ings, adding an­other di­men­sion to your home the­atre ex­pe­ri­ence.

If this isn’t ex­actly new, how about HDMI 1.4a com­pat­i­bil­ity, which al­lows 3D video trans­mis­sion?

Of course, you’ll need con­tent on Blu-ray discs to get you started.

Pi­o­neer’s new crop also fea­tures Dolby Pro Logic IIz to en­hance the more con­ven­tional sur­round for­mat and enough HDMI con­nec- tiv­ity for a wide range of ap­pli­ca­tions. Best of all is iPhone/iPod com­pat­i­bil­ity and con­nec­tiv­ity – down­load­able apps turn your iPod into a re­mote con­trol de­vice for Pi­o­neer gear.

The Ad­vanced Multi-Chan­nel Acous­tic Cal­i­bra­tion Sys­tem, a Pi­o­neer technology, means op­ti­mal set up be­tween the amps and speak­ers are a given. This au­to­mated set up com­pen­sates for dif­fer­ences in speaker size, level and dis­tance, equalises re­sponse, checks po­lar­ity, and di­als in the re­quired amount of re­verb.
