q&a

Now you can customize sonic performance just like the pros. MCACC (Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration System) provides built-in test tones that allow you to fine-tune your speakers? channel level, delay, and even their placement in the room, for optimal sound reproduction. The VSX-D814-K powers six channels with an equal 100 watts (even a dual surround back speaker) and features advanced surround processing, with DTS-ES Discrete, DTS 96/24, Dolby Digital EX, and Dolby Pro Logic IIx decoding. Its sophisticated, heavy-duty construction utilizes one compact circuit board for all digital signal processing for exceptional purity, plus a double-precision Motorola 48-bit DSP engine that?s used in top theaters worldwide. The VSX-D814-K is ready for DVD-Audio and SACD next-gen audio, and provides the convenience of Advanced Quick Setup, a full complement of inputs, outputs, and terminals, and a new pre-programmed LCD remote. Also available in silver (VSX-D814-S).

Engineered For Excellence
The advanced simplicity of design and the superior quality of the chips, power supplies and materials that make up the VSXD814K prove that Pioneer A/V receivers are indeed the industry standard. The Digital Core Engine incorporates all digital signal processing into one powerful, compact circuit board, shortening the signal path and minimizing radiation. Its double-precision, high-speed 150 MIPS Motorola 48-bit DSP is the same chip used in Dolby and DTS theater systems worldwide, as well as in the creation of music, movies, and television shows. The benefits? Low jitter, a super-accurate PLL sound-processing clocking module, and virtually no audio degradation. Plus, this processors's low impedance stabilizes power throughout the chip, preventing internal noise that can affect signal purity.

The Best Performance From Any Room
To achieve optimal audio performance, your speakers need to be fine-tuned for the room they're in. Room size and shape, floor and wall textures, the quality and relative size of your speakers -- all of these factors affect performance. Pioneer has a solution: the VSXD814K offers the most precise acoustic calibration available without professional support. It's called the Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration System, or MCACC, and it works in any room regardless of shape or size. Manual MCACC Set-up provides special built-in test tones to guide the connection of each speaker, letting you use the front left speaker as a reference to fine-tune channel level and channel delay. With MCACC, you can have the ultimate home entertainment system -- one that is customized for your own home.

Less Heat and Direct Construction
The main components of the VSXD814K's Pioneer Hybrid Amplification system are built into a single integrated circuit, for perfect precision even when processing high-level current. Since heat influences the amount of bias an output transistor requires to reproduce sound, Pioneer engineered a special Thermal Compensation Transistor to maintain correct bias levels regardless of temperature, minimizing total harmonic distortion. To eliminate undesireable electrical influence, Direct Construction keeps critical circuitry separate (for example, digital from analog, and video from audio). Also, the positioning of key parts is carefully mapped out, to optimize signal transmission efficiency.

Surround Yourself with Pristine Sound
In addition to the more traditional surround sound formats, the VSXD814K offers new Pro Logic IIx for 7.1-channel playback of traditional stereo and 5.1/6.1-channel content. It can apply Dolby Digital EX and DTS-ES decoding to 6.1-channel output, and its DTS NEO:6 capability can produce 6.1-channel surround from 2-channel sources. Pioneer's exclusive DSP technology lets you experience movies and music as never before. Virtual Surround Back mode deepens and broadens the sound stage by creating a "phantom" rear surround effect without using a surround back speaker. 6-Channel Stereo mode simulates a regular stereo acoustic environment while using all your system's speakers to create Original Surround modes. For the most compelling entertainment possible, Advanced Theater DSP modes create various simulated sound stages depending on the room environment and applications (choose between Cinema, Music, TV, Game, and Sports). And, Expanded Theater mode extends the depth, breadth, and dynamism of Dolby Surround sources, for a more faithful reproduction of 5-channel sound.

Quality Connections
The input terminals on the VSXD814K are configured for 7.1-channel processing for DTS-ES, DTS, Dolby Digital, and other multi-channel sources such as DVD-Audio and SACD. To enjoy cinema-quality sound, just connect a Pioneer DVD player and suround system speakers and you're ready. For CD-R/RW, MD, and other recording media, this receiver has two digital coaxial inputs and optical inputs, plus a digital output. You also get two component video inputs to maintain the signal integrity from such digital sources as DVD and DTV. The DSXD814K even has one front optical terminal for even more flexible connection.

Quick Set-Up, Friendly Control
Besides the professional-quality precision of MCACC Set-up, the VSXD814K offers the ultimate convenience of Quick Set-up. Just input the room size and the number of connected speakers, and the optimal levels and delay time will be set automatically. Component Video Switching simplifies your system when you add more components, and the smart, comprehensive remote control makes set-up and operation simple.
