Pioneer 5.1 Channel Black Network AV Receiver - VSX-832

Upgrade your home entertainment to the next level with Pioneer's VSX-832, the first 5ch AV receiver supporting Dolby Atmos®*1. Enjoy a wide, enveloping soundscape with the Surround Enhancer*1. Ultra HD video, HDR10, and Dolby Vision present life-like images, while FireConnect™*1, Chromecast*1 built-in, and DTS Play-Fi®*1 let you stream music anywhere in the house. Limitless songs on internet radio and network streaming services are just a few taps away with the Pioneer Remote App.


  • Dolby Atmos for 3.1.2ch with Surround Enhancer
    The VSX-832 supports up to 3.1.2ch Dolby Atmos*. 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 3.1.2ch is virtually expanded to 5.1.2ch to create 3D surround sound field. Even those who have difficulty installing rear speakers can also enjoy various audio formats** in a wide sound field with Surround Enhancer, as well Dolby Atmos
    • * Dolby Atmos and Surround Enhancer will be available with future firmware update
    • ** Except audio signals encoded by DTS formats
  • DTS:X™
    DTS:X is the next-generation audio codec from DTS that leverages object-based audio to enable new immersive and interactive audio experiences. Since DTS:X can automatically adapt the audio to the existing channels and speaker system, no specific speaker layout is required. Experience an immersive soundscape with incredibly rich and life-like audio
  • Reflex Optimizer
    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 feel uncomfortable. The Reflex Optimizer which uses the Phase Control technology adjusts this shift, and improves the localization of the sound image by aligning the frequencies with those of the floor speakers, creating the ideal reproduction environment
  • Next Generation Video Standard Ready
    The VSX-832 supports pass-through for HDR10 and Dolby Vision. By connecting the source device, you can enjoy these latest video standards on a compatible display. What's more, all HDMI terminals support 4K, BT.2020, and HDCP 2.2, so you will have no problem when upgrading to new devices
  • MCACC Auto Room Tuning
    Create the optimum acoustic environment with Pioneer's MCACC (Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration System), developed with the expertise of professional recording studios. With the custom microphone, the system automatically compensates for differences in speaker size, level and distance, and equalizes response
  • Synchronized Sound with Phase Control
    As an innovative solution for the phase lag between the subwoofer and the main channel speakers caused by the bass management filter, Phase Control compensates the delayed bass to improve sound synchronization
  • Built-in Dual Band Wi-Fi
    Enjoy network features such as audio streaming via wireless LAN connection. The built-in Wi-Fi is dual band, supporting both 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz frequency channels. By using the 5 GHz band, you can enjoy steady and uninterrupted streaming of audio files
  • Internet Radio & Online Music
    Enjoy a limitless flow of music, sports, talk, and news entertainment from internet radio stations and online music services, including Pandora*, Spotify, TuneIn, TIDAL, and Deezer
    • * Pandora service only available in the U.S.
  • Multi-room Audio Offers a Variety of Ways to Enjoy Music
    FireConnect™ mirrors network audio and external analog sources connected to the master component—from streaming services to vinyl records—on FireConnect -compatible speakers in other rooms. Music selection, speaker grouping, and playback management across the home are built into Pioneer Remote App for iOS and Android™
    • * FireConnect™ is enabled with a firmware update. Sharing of audio from external inputs depends on the model and is enabled with a future firmware update. Sampling rates of 44.1 kHz and 48 kHz are supported. Optional Wi-Fi Speaker required – shipping at a later date. We cannot guarantee that the AV Receiver will support all devices incorporating FireConnect technology. Not all Fireconnect compatible devices work on all AV Receivers
  • Chromecast built-in
    The VSX-832 features Chromecast* built-in, so you can use your mobile device to stream your favorite music, radio, or podcasts to your speaker. You can control the audio from anywhere in the house using Chromecast-enabled apps running on your personal device—iPhone, iPad, Android phone and tablet, Mac and Windows laptop, and Chromebook. Discover Chromecast-enabled apps at g.co/cast/audioapps
    • * Available with future firmware update
  • DTS Play-Fi
    DTS Play-Fi* wirelessly streams 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 Play-Fi app
