Pioneer VSX-832 overview
Enjoy 4K Ultra HD upscaling and
pass-through with HDR and 3D support via HDMI with the Pioneer VSX-832
5.1-Channel Network A/V Receiver. It produces up to 80W of power per
channel at 8 Ohms for room-filling sound. MCACC sound optimization will
allow you to tailor the sound to your room's specific acoustics.
Built-in Bluetooth connectivity lets you listen to music wirelessly from
your favorite Bluetooth-capable devices, and integrated Wi-Fi lets you
stream Internet content. You can also attach a USB drive to the USB port
on the front panel to play your stored multimedia files. The VSX-832 is
equipped with four HDMI inputs and one HDMI output. The HDMI output
supports ARC for the reproduction of TV-based audio, such as your TV's
built-in Netflix or Hulu apps.
DTS:X is designed to
leverage object-based audio to enable an immersive audio experience. It
can automatically adapt the audio to the existing channels and speaker
system, so no specific speaker layout is required.
When using Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers, high directivity sound from
the unit reflects off the ceiling, while low directivity sound directly
reaches the ears. The different pathways cause a phase shift, making
the sound seem out of sync. The Reflex Optimizer, which uses Phase
Control technology, is designed to adjust this shift and improve the
localization of the sound image by aligning the frequencies with those
of the floor speakers.
The VSX-832 supports pass through HDR10 and Dolby Vision on all HDMI inputs, which also support 4K, BT.2020, and HDCP 2.2.
MCACC Auto Room Tuning
With the included microphone, MCACC (Multi-Channel Acoustic
Calibration System) is designed to automatically compensate for
differences in speaker size, level, and distance, and equalize response
accordingly to help you achieve an enhanced acoustic environment.
Synchronized Sound with Phase Control
Phase Control is designed to compensate for the phase lag between
the subwoofer and the main-channel speakers caused by the bass
management filter for enhanced sound synchronization.
Built-In Dual-Band Wi-Fi
The built-in Wi-Fi is dual-band, supporting both 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz
frequency channels for a steady and uninterrupted streaming of audio
Internet Radio & Online Music
Enjoy a nearly
limitless flow of music, sports, talk, and news entertainment from
Internet radio stations and online music services, including Pandora,
Spotify, TuneIn, TIDAL, and Deezer.
Dolby Atmos for 3.1.2-Channel Audio with Surround Enhancer, Available via a Future Firmware Update
Following a future firmware update, the VSX-832 will support up to
3.1.2-channel Dolby Atmos audio. Surround Enhancer, developed by Dolby
Laboratories, Inc., is a virtual speaker technology based on
Head-Related Transfer Function (HRTF). With DSP, virtual surround
speakers deliver the sound that usually comes from surround speakers.
The 3.1.2-channel setup is virtually expanded to 5.1.2-channels to
create a 3D surround sound field.
FireConnect Wireless Streaming, Available via a Future Firmware Update
FireConnect, scheduled to be made available via a future firmware
update, mirrors network audio and external analog sources connected to
the master component – from streaming services to vinyl records – on
separately sold FireConnect-compatible speakers in other rooms. Music
selection, speaker grouping, and playback management across the home are
built into the Pioneer Remote app for iOS and Android.
Chromecast built-in, Available via a Future Firmware Update
Chromecast built-in, which is scheduled to be made available via a
future firmware update, will allow you to use your mobile device to
stream your favorite music, radio, or podcasts to your system. You can
control the audio from nearly anywhere in the house using
Chromecast-enabled apps running on your personal device, such as an
iPhone, iPad, Android device, Mac or Windows laptop, and Chromebook.
DTS Play-Fi, Available via a Future Firmware Update
DTS Play-Fi, scheduled to be made available via a future firmware
update, is designed to wirelessly stream any audio content from any
compatible mobile device to the VSX-832 and DTS Play-Fi compatible audio
systems, creating a multi-room system in your home. You can stream
different sources to different speakers at the same time from the DTS
