The new entry-level member of the seven-channel class
A receiver that can competently power a complete Dolby Atmos speaker set with front, centre, surround and height speakers as well as two independent subwoofers no longer has to cost a small fortune: the VSX-932 has all required decoders and seven powerful output stages with Pioneer's exclusive "Direct Energy" technology that minimises electricity consumption and waste heat. Thanks to the "Reflex Optimizer", it is able to produce a convincing sound experience with a spacious, all-encompassing atmosphere and precise three-dimensionally placed effects, even with the use of indirect projecting Atmos-enabled speakers. In keeping with its comprehensive surround capabilities, the VSX-932 is also equipped with the latest video technology: its four HDMI inputs support 4K/4:4:4/60p/24-bit with the HDR10, Dolby Vision and BT.2020 colour space and dynamics extensions. High-resolution streaming is supported as well: high resolution and DSD support is complemented by the integrated streaming services Tidal, Spotify, Deezer and TuneIn Internet radio. And by WiFi, AirPlay, Bluetooth and, after a future firmware update, integrated Chromecast technology and PlayFi. Since the living room is not the only place for music enjoyment, the VSX-932 with FireConnect can become the centre of a multi-room network that covers the entire house. Suitable multi-room speakers are available from Pioneer and other manufacturers - because FireConnect is a non-proprietary standard and therefore an excellent fit for Pioneer's policy to consistently offer the best entertainment with maximum freedom in all respects.
Multi-Dimensional Excitement with Dolby Atmos
The VSX-932 is compatible with 5.2.2ch configuration of the latest theater sound platform, Dolby Atmos. You can reproduce object-oriented sound in smooth, curving movements, or the realistic three-dimensional movement overhead by the top speakers
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 localisation of the sound image by aligning the frequencies with those of the floor speakers, creating the ideal reproduction environment.
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.
Multi-room Audio Offers a Variety of Ways to Enjoy Music
FireConnect mirrors network audio and external analogue 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. FireConnect is a technology based on Blackfire provided by Blackfire Research Corp., USA
Next Generation Video Standard Ready
The VSX-932 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 equalses response.
The VSX-932 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.
*Chromecast built-in will be available with future firmware update
Synchronised 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 synchronisation.
DTS Play-Fi* wirelessly streams any audio content from any compatible mobile device to the VSX-932 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.
*DTS Play-Fi will be available with future firmware update
