Pioneer’s high-definition audio
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.
