Pioneer Black AV Receiver - VSX920K

There's only one way to get closer to an artist's true intent--and that's to get as close as possible to exactly what the artist created. With this in mind, Pioneer ushers in an entirely new era of high definition stereophonic performance. From enjoying the very best 1080p high definition picture available to hearing every last nuance with award-winning audio capabilities, Pioneer's range of receivers offers nothing less than a miraculous performance at every level. And with an ever-increasing list of connectivity and integration options as well, these receivers will also guarantee to get you closer to the original experience than ever before.

The Pioneer VSX-920-K delivers amazing home theater performance in an elegant package at a surprising value. With connectivity options for all your latest high-definition home theater components and digital 1080p upscaling from any source, the VSX-920-K takes performance a step further with support for your digital media via a front USB input and compatibility with Bluetooth sources (using the optional AS-BT100 adapter, sold separately). Plus, it's "Works with iPhone"-certified, so you can incorporate your favorite Apple products into your home theater easily.

Key Features:

  • 7.1-Channel 3-D Ready A/V Receiver
  • Works with iPhone Certified - includes USB/Composite Video Cable
  • Bluetooth Ready with Optional Pioneer AS-BT100 Bluetooth Adapter
  • HDMI® (V.1.4 with 3D) - 4 Inputs / 1 Output
  • Anchor Bay® Video Processing

Features:

"Works with iPhone" Certification Provides iPhone Users the Ultimate Plug-and-Play Integration
Get a truly plug-and-play iPhone experience with your home theater. Thanks to the VSX-920-K's "Works with iPhone" certification, you can enjoy music, movies, downloaded TV shows from iTunes, photos, and more. An included USB/composite video cable makes connecting your iPhone to share your favorite media easy--and your iPhone charges automatically when connected. Unlike other receiver lines, there's no need to buy a separate dock to enjoy your iPhone with your home theater. This included cable also works with most generations of iPod Classic, Nano, and iPod Touch.

Share your videos, and enjoy music with full album information on your TV. Your iPhone's wireless and network features remain fully functional and music and movies will mute when you receive an incoming call. And you've got lots of control options--use the iPhone directly, or push a single button on the VSX-920-K's front panel to switch control to the included preset remote and an intuitive text GUI.

Plus, your iPhone's music will always sound its best thanks to Pioneer's exclusive Advanced Sound Retriever technology, which restores lost data in compressed music files. So even in a big room, you'll get much closer to the artist's original intent from your iPhone, iPod or other MP3 player. And Auto Level Control means a smooth, consistent listening experience with no jarring volume changes between your favorite songs and albums.

Release Your Smartphone's Music with the AS-BT100 Bluetooth Adapter (sold separately)
For wireless connectivity, add a Pioneer AS-BT100 Bluetooth adapter (sold separately) to release your music from your iPhone, Blackberry®, or Android® smartphone as well as other Bluetooth-enabled sources like laptops. And the VSX-920-K's Advanced Sound Retriever technology makes sure that even your compressed MP3s are brought back to near cd-quality sound.

The Latest HDMI Technology Gets You Ready for 3-D
All of Pioneer's latest receivers support the latest HDMI specification, meaning that you're not just getting the most out of your existing movies and music, you're preparing for the next generation of 3-D video content with the VSX-920-K. And with 4 HDMI inputs, you've got plenty of connectivity options for the growing number of high-definition sources available today.

1080p Upscaling from Any Source
Anchor Bay® and PureCinema video processing lets you upscale your picture to digital 1080p from virtually any source, including analog. PureCinema's extra processing of 3D noise reduction and Y/C color separation ensures you'll get the best picture possible from anything you've got.

True-to-Life, High-Definition Audio and New Dolby Pro Logic IIz
Of course all the latest Pioneer receivers support high-definition audio formats like Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Audio to give your Blu-ray Disc® movies a soundtrack that's true-to-life. But Pioneer adds an extra dimension with support for Dolby Pro Logic IIz across its entire 2010 line of receivers, which adds a "height" channel for an even more immersive experience.

Total Control with Custom Pioneer Technologies: Acoustic Calibration, Advanced Sound Retriever, and Auto Level Control
Pioneer's exclusive Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration system (MCACC) provides a near studio-quality, multi-channel listening experience customized specifically to your listening environment. An included microphone measures every speaker's connection, and notes its size, distance from the listening point, sound levels and timbre to calibrate and maximize performance.

Even compressed audio such as WMA, MP3 and AAC is enhanced with another Pioneer exclusive, Advanced Sound Retriever, by filling in areas where minute details were left out during the compression process. This technology also enhances the audio quality of SIRIUS® Satellite Radio and can realize an upper limit frequency of 20kHz with compressed audio playback for surprising audio richness and clarity even from "lossy" digital audio sources.

Additionally, the Auto Level Control feature can equalize volume level differences between tracks playing from an iPhone or iPod or during television programming so the volume can be enjoyed at a consistent level--no more jarring "blare" when switching audio sources.

All of these technologies come together in the VSX-920-K to deliver a powerful level of control and sophistication for your home theater.

Comments about Pioneer Black AV Receiver:

First, let me say that ABT was great to work with. [...] The receiver itself is relatively average. There are some things to like about it (nice styling, low price, included iPod adapter, Second Zone capability, runs a lot cooler than other receivers), but I have some issues:MCACC - the automatic speaker calibration system still hasn't worked for me. It keeps telling me there is too much ambient noise in my house. This is after turning off the AC, unplugging the fridge, and making the house so quiet you could hear a pin drop. I can't get it any quieter in here, so the MCACC isn't working for me. Power claims - 110 watts? No...if you look in the owner's manual, you will see that the actual average power is 80 watts per channel. 110 is only available at .5% THD, which this unit is not capable of. The biggest selling point for me on this receiver was the power, and I feel misled. Remote control - very confusing. I have upgraded to the Harmony One and don't use this remote anymore. No AC outlet on the back of receiver. Why not? This is important for people who want to add accessories like cabinet exhaust fans that only power on when the receiver is powered on, or bias lighting behind their TV. Single subwoofer output. Why not have two?
