Home Theater enthusiasts, you have something new to be enthusiastic about. Introducing the Pioneer 7.1-Channel VSX-921-K AV Receiver

As elegant as it is advanced, the Pioneer VSX-921-K delivers amazing home theater performance at a surprising value. With connectivity options for all your latest high-definition home theater components, and digital 1080p upscaling from any source, the VSX-921-K does two things remarkably well: It takes performance further, while at the same time bringing you closer to exactly what the artist intended.

A Comprehensive Apple® Solution

The VSX-921-K is compatible with iPod®, iPhone®, and now iPad® devices and are specifically designed to enhance the experience you get from them. Right out of the box, your receiver comes with a USB/video cable - so there's no need to buy a separate dock to access all your music, videos, streaming content, and photos stored on your Apple devices.

Plus, since your iPhone, iPod and now your iPad charges automatically when connected, it's the ultimate plug-and-play integration with your home theater. You can enjoy music with iTunes® album art, share videos and movies, downloaded TV shows from iTunes, photos, web content such as YouTube® and much more. And because the iPhone device's wireless and network features remain fully functional, music and movies will mute when you receive an incoming call. And you've got lots of control options--use the Apple device directly, or push a single button on the VSX-921's front panel to switch control to the included preset remote and an intuitive on-screen menu.

Portable Device - Meet Home Theater

The VSX-921-K is fully ready for wireless Bluetooth® audio from virtually any A2DP profile Bluetooth device, including smartphones, laptops, etc. With the Pioneer AS-BT200 Bluetooth adapter, you can unleash yourself from headphones, cables and inputs. And you'll enjoy near cd-quality with Sound Retriever AIR technology, created specifically to enhance Bluetooth audio.

Ultimate Sound Control

Of course all the latest Pioneer receivers support the high-definition audio formats, Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD® Master Audio to give your Blu-ray Disc® soundtracks unsurpassed audio quality. But Pioneer also includes all of the Dolby and DTS surround formats best suited for the wide variety of entertainment sources, including the newest Dolby Pro Logic IIz height channel.

Pioneer's exclusive Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration system (MCACC) provides a near studio-quality, multi-channel listening experience customized specifically to your listening environment. An included microphone measures every speaker's connection, and notes its size, distance from the listening point, sound levels and timbre to calibrate and maximize performance.

Even compressed audio such as WMA, MP3 and AAC is enhanced with another Pioneer exclusive, Advanced Sound Retriever, by filling in areas where minute details were left out during the compression process.

And since the only thing that should shock you is how good it sounds, there's also an Auto Level Control that eliminates jarring volume changes between your favorite songs, albums and audio sources by equalizing volume differences between portable audio tracks or television programming.

Ready for 3D? You are with the Latest HDMI® Technology

All of Pioneer's newest receivers support the latest HDMI 1.4a specification. So not only do you get the most out of your existing movies and music, with the VSX-921-K you're prepared for the next generation of 3D video content. With 4 HDMI inputs, you've got plenty of connectivity options for the growing number of high-definition sources available. All Pioneer receivers also offer advanced HDMI conveniences like Audio Return Channel and Power Save HDMI Standby Through.

Spectacular 1080p High-definition Video

With Anchor Bay® video processing, the VSX-921 converts analog video sources to HDMI for one-wire high definition convenience. For lower resolution video, advanced video processing lets you upscale your picture to digital 1080p to best match the native resolution of your HDTV. With the VSX-921's superior video processing, you know the picture will be stunning, regardless of the source.

On-Screen Display

The VSX-921-K features an intuitive on-screen display for use with the included preset remote, so you can make guided adjustments to your home theater sound.

The Pioneer VSX-921-K. Exceptional technology that not only compliments your home theater system, but your lifestyle as well.

Plus, it's 'Works with iPhone'-certified, so you can incorporate your favorite Apple products into your home theater easily.

The Ultimate iPhone Experience--Now In Your Home Theater

'Works with iPhone' Certification Provides iPhone Users the Ultimate Plug-and-Play Integration Get a truly plug-and-play iPhone experience with your home theater.

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-920-K. And with 4 HDMI inputs, you've got plenty of connectivity options for the growing number of high-definition sources available today.


1080p Upscaling from Any Source
Anchor Bay® and PureCinema video processing lets you upscale your picture to digital 1080p from virtually any source, including analog. PureCinema's extra processing of 3D noise reduction and Y/C color separation ensures 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 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 even more immersive experience.

Total Control with Custom Pioneer Technologies: Acoustic Calibration, Advanced Sound Retriever, and Auto Level Control

Pioneer's exclusive Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration system (MCACC) provides a near studio-quality, multi-channel listening experience customized specifically to your listening environment. An included microphone measures every speaker's connection, and notes its size, distance from the listening point, sound levels and timbre to calibrate and maximize performance.
Even compressed audio such as WMA, MP3 and AAC is enhanced with another Pioneer exclusive, Advanced Sound Retriever, by filling in areas where minute details were left out during the compression process. This technology also enhances the audio quality of SIRIUS® Satellite Radio and can realize an upper limit frequency of 20kHz with compressed audio playback for surprising audio richness and clarity even from 'lossy' digital audio sources.
Additionally, the Auto Level Control feature can equalize volume level differences between tracks playing from an iPhone or iPod or during television programming so the volume can be enjoyed at a consistent level--no more jarring 'blare' when switching audio sources.
All of these technologies come together in the VSX-920-K to deliver a powerful level of control and sophistication for your home theater.
