Pioneer 7.1 Channel 3D Ready Elite Receiver - VSX30

VSX-30 Elite Receiver

Elite receivers have always represented the utmost commitment to the artist's original vision. Combining audio and video processing technologies found nowhere else in their class with multiple professional-level control options, all Elite receivers possess the capability to elevate your entertainment experience beyond what you've ever expected. And with an eye towards total home theater integration thanks to connectivity with analog, digital, and network sources in addition to maximum audio and video precision, these receivers are your solution for a completely unrivaled home entertainment control center.

The “Made for iPhone®” certified VSX-30 effortlessly incorporates your Apple® products into your home theater. And with Pioneer’s exclusive iControlAV app (downloaded separately via the Apple App Store) your iPhone or iPod touch® is transformed into a full-function remote control. Hardly an entry-level Elite receiver, the VSX-30 supports a host of connectivity options for all your latest high-definition home theater components, plus audio support for two zones. RS-232 support means compatibility with the latest professional home automation systems from control leaders like Crestron® and Control4®. And the VSX-30 brings extensive connectivity for your digital media via Ethernet and a front A/V input, and compatibility with Bluetooth sources (using the optional AS-BT100 adapter, sold separately).

The Ultimate iPhone Experience--Now In Your Home Theater

"Made for iPhone" Certification Provides iPhone Users the Ultimate Integration for their Home Theater

Get a truly plug-and-play iPhone experience in your home theater. Thanks to the VSX-30's "Made for iPhone" certification, you can enjoy music with iTunes® album art, movies, downloaded TV shows from iTunes, photos, web 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. 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 and album art on your TV. Your iPhone device’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-30's front panel to switch control to the included preset remote and an intuitive, full-color GUI.

Pioneer's Free iPhone App Turns Your iPhone or iPod touch into a Powerful Control Center

Pioneer's iControlAV (a free download from Apple's App Store) gives you total control over your home theater sound. With controls for master and per-zone volume, sound fields, and more, you've got a simple but powerful way to adjust your home theater sound any way you like.

The iPhone and iPod touch device’s accelerometer are used to control the balance, bass and dialogue--no confusing sequence of remote buttons to remember, just tilt and maneuver your Apple portable device until the sound is right where you want it.

Where Maximum Fidelity Meets Connectivity

Access Your Portable Devices, Internet Radio, and More

In addition to connections for all your home theater components, a front USB port lets you connect your digital camera or portable media player to display a slideshow of JPEG photos on your HDTV, or play MP3, WAV, or WMA music files with full ID3 tag and album art support. Elite receivers will display up to 32 album art thumbnails on your TV, and you can scroll through them with the included remote. And your options don't stop with your portable devices. When connected to your home network, the VSX-30 is your portal for thousands of Internet radio stations -- all just a few clicks of the remote away.

Full-Color On-Screen GUI

There are more ways to control your Pioneer VSX-30 than just your iPhone. There's a full-color on-screen GUI for use with the included learning remote, so you can make guided adjustments to your home theater sound. Not only that, but all Elite receivers let you connect a USB keyboard so you can rename stations for radio and Internet radio, network settings, and more.

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, iPad®, Blackberry®, or Android® smartphone as well as other Bluetooth-enabled sources like laptops. It's a plug-and-play solution for listening to your smartphone's digital music library. And Pioneer’s exclusive Sound Retriever AIR restores critical audio data that is often removed from compressed audio formats, especially when transferred via Bluetooth.

How Pioneer's Technology Delivers the Ultimate Home Theater Experience

The Latest HDMI Technology Gets You Ready for 3-D

All of Pioneer's latest receivers support the latest HDMI 1.4a 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-30. And with 4 HDMI inputs, you've got more than enough connectivity options for the growing number of high-definition sources available today.

1080p Upscaling from Any Source

Pioneer has long been the leader in video processing and the VSX-30 is no exception. Anchor Bay® (VRS) Video Reference Series video processing lets you upscale your picture to digital 1080p from virtually any source, including analog. Additionally, 3D Noise Reduction and a suite of video adjustments ensure 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® Master 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 exciting new surround sound option.

Near Studio-quality Sound with Advanced MCACC

Pioneer's exclusive Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration system (MCACC) provides a near studio-quality, multi-channel listening experience that customizes each of the VSX-30’s 7.1 sound channels specifically to your listening environment. Additionally, the Auto Level Control feature can equalize volume level differences between tracks playing from a portable audio device or commercials during television programming so the volume can be enjoyed at a consistent level--no more jarring "blare" when switching audio sources.

Where the VSX-30 truly shines is with custom control options. Full custom feature-sets including 2-zone Audio as well as partnerships with 3rd party controllers like Control4, Crestron and AMX ensure compatibility with the latest home automation technologies.

All of these technologies come together in the VSX-30 to deliver an unprecedented level of control and sophistication for the serious home entertainment enthusiast.
