As today’s advanced smartphones continue to become essential components of the home entertainment experience, Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. is making integration of these devices easy and convenient.
Pioneer’s latest 2013 audio video receiver lineup, which includes the VSX-523 and VSX-823 5.1-channel, VSX-1023 7.1-channel, and VSX-1123 7.2-channel receivers, are designed to support today’s connected lifestyle, compatible with the two most popular smartphone OS platforms for expanded access to music streaming options and improved control of features and functionality.
The new models also enhance traditional home theater features including expanded high resolution audio file playback, multiple HDMI connections including a dedicated second zone HDMI output, 4K Ultra HD compatibility, Pioneer’s proprietary ControlApp and iControlAV2013 App, and more. All of the new Pioneer receivers enable iPhone, iPad and iPod users to enjoy audio playback stored on their devices.
The latest versions of Pioneer’s ControlApp and iControlAV2013 apps, available for download from the App Store or Google Play expand control over the receivers and their home theater settings from the convenience of a smart device. Ideal for music lovers, both apps offer a new feature that enables users to access the music libraries stored on their devices and create playlists that can be streamed wirelessly to the receiver, all from within the app.
The new Pioneer receivers will be available at authorized Pioneer retailers in March with suggested retail prices of $279 (VSX-523), $429 (VSX-823), $529 (VSX-1023) and $629 (VSX-1123). Visit PioneerElectronics.com for more information.
