AV Receiver Pioneer VSX534D with Dolby Atmos, DAB, DTS:X….

With Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, DAB radio, Bluetooth and a wide range of connections, the Pioneer VSX-534D is the best introduction to home theater.

Dolby Atmos, DTS:X and DTS Virtual:X for immersive sound
Dolby Atmos (3.1.2) uses ceiling or upward speakers to produce a multidimensional, engaging sound that matches the multiplex. DTS:X literally pushes the boundaries of what you’d expect from home theater. This highly sophisticated processor represents three-dimensional images that conventional processing cannot match. If the ceiling or speakers shooting up are not practical, try DTS Virtual:X. This gives a good impression of extra height without the additional speakers.Pioneer VSX-534D

Powerful, high-quality sound
With a powerful 135 watts (at 6 ohm) per channel, the Pioneer VSX-534D has enough grunt to deliver immersive cinematic sound in all but the largest theaters. More than powerful, the VSX-534D also has to do with quality. Using a 384 kHz/32-bit DAKM AKM (Digital to Analogue Convertor) at its center, this AV receiver makes the most of the music and soundtracks of high-resolution movies.

Widely compatible
With four HDMI inputs and one TV output, the VSX534D is ready to handle all HD sources. Compatible with HDR10, HLG, BT.2020, HDCP2.2 and Dolby Vision, HDMI sockets do not limit the sound and vibration of sources. Ideal for HDR gaming consoles, UHD Blu-ray decoders and 4K HDR, this AV receiver is ready for all of them.

Built-in DAB radio
In addition to the wider range of home theater options, the Pioneer VSX-534D also has a DAB radio. Perfect for when you just want background music, DAB (digital) radio offers a wide range of stations, including the popular BBC 6 Music and 4 Extras.

Stream music from your phone over Bluetooth
With a built-in Bluetooth receiver, it’s easy to listen to your music from other devices. Pair it with your smartphone, tablet, laptop, or PC and wirelessly stream all your favorite music. With the ability to stream music services like Spotify, Deezer and Tidal, as well as your music library, you have access to almost unlimited music.

MCACC makes setup very simple
Despite packing a lot of technology, the VSX534D is easy to set up and use. Pioneer’s unique McACC (Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration) system adapts the amplifier to the size of the listening room and speaker placement at the touch of a button. Phase control technology means a cohesive sound between the speakers, wherever you choose to place them in the room.Pioneer VSX-534D-

Exit of Zone B
A passive exit of Zone B adds even more flexibility> Either connecting it to a pair of active speakers (with built-in amplifier) in another room or using it with a wireless headphone base (not provided) for wireless headphone hearing.

Thin design
Thinner than the previous model, the VSX534D is easier to insert into your cabinet or rack. The sleek design also has a minimal number of buttons, making it more intuitive to use and easier in the eye. Photo:Pioneer
