Pioneer Elite Black 7-Channel AV Receiver - VSX21TXH

Creating a truly immersive entertainment experience in the home is no small task, but one that has driven the latest innovations incorporated in the Pioneer® Elite® VSX-21TXH receiver. At the core of the VSX-21TXH is the Direct Energy Class A/B amplifier to power a sonically dynamic multi-channel home theater. Connect a Pioneer Blu-ray Disc® player to the Elite VSX-21TXH and lose yourself in the latest movie in a stunning 1080p picture complemented by a Dolby® TrueHD or DTS-HD® Master audio soundtrack. If you are enjoying your current DVD library, the VSX-21TXH will enhance the multi-channel soundtrack with the Pioneer-exclusive Advanced Sound Retriever-Multi (ASR) technology so the sound will be more robust in the larger 5.1 channel system. And if you are watching broadcast television, the proprietary Auto Level Control-Multi (ALC) will monitor and maintain the volume at a consistent level so commercials won’t suddenly blast significantly more loudly than your favorite TV show.

The Elite VSX-21TXH is also Works with iPhone™ certified, so you can enjoy your favorite songs or downloaded video on your larger system. Easily connect your iPhone to the front USB input with the included cable, and start navigating your playlists with the new graphical user interface with on-screen album art (when available). The Elite VSX-21TXH is also both XM® and SIRIUS® Satellite Radio ready*. And if you are looking to expand your entertainment throughout the house and are consulting with a custom installer, the Elite VSX-21TXH is the perfect solution as it provides up to two zones of A/V distribution.
