Dolby Atmos, DTS:X
This device supports the newest Dolby Atmos and (after a free update) DTS:X surround-sound formats. With their object-oriented designs these formats facilitate a perfect wraparound sound with precisely placed effects and realistic movement sequences in all three spatial axes. In this respect loudspeaker arrangements of up to 11.2 channels are supported.
Streaming and AirPlay
As a DLNA 1.5 certified network player with integrated WLAN, this device plays music files in all of the relevant formats from the home network including high-resolution DSD and FLAC files, naturally gapless and with a convenient app control. Tablets and Smartphones can be seamlessly and wirelessly integrated via AirPlay or without a network via Bluetooth.
4K Ultra-HD scaling
Give your Ultra-HD Display the food it needs. This Pioneer device is not only fully compatible with all available high-definition video signals, its high-performance video scaler also produces 4K images, even from low-resolution material. In this way, with up to 20 times as many pixels, even your old DVDs will gain a new dimension where both focus and interference are concerned.
MCACC Professional sound equalization
MCACC Pro analyses the sounds from your loudspeakers via an accompanying microphone and adapts the volume and distance to create a completely harmonious surround sound experience. At the same time, a precisely working equalizer compensates for any disruptive influences on the room acoustics. MCACC is fully compatible with all sound formats, including Dolby Atmos and DTS:X.
High-resolution sound – on multiple channels too!
