vsx-919ah

The VSX-919AH AV Receiver from Pioneer boasts a range

of awe-inspiring features, including internal decoding

of advanced HD audio formats to truly enjoy a full HD

viewing experience. Dynamic picture and sound is

optimised for your living room with Pioneer’s built in

Multi Channel Acoustic Calibration (MCACC) technology,

a technology that actively “listens” to determine the size

and speaker position of the speakers in relation to the

listening position.

When connected to a Pioneer Blu-ray Player via HDMI,

the VSX-919AH uses a proprietary PQLS technology for a

jitterless transmission, resulting in high-quality sound as

it removes any timing issues between the player and the

receiver over HDMI. Furthermore this entry level receiver

can up-convert analogue sources to an HDMI signal with

up to 1080p resolution.

Aside from the extensive technical features, the

VSX-919AH has a user friendly and colourful GUI

(Graphic User Interface). This Pioneer receiver also

comes complete with an iPod Digital USB connection

that provides direct plug-and-play enjoyment of all

your favourite music stored on your iPod or iPhone,

whilst displaying album artwork and photos on your

connected flat screen TV.

Partner the VSX-919AH with the BDP-320 and you can

also put away one of the remotes, as these perfectly

partnered products can be controlled using a

single remote.

The 919AH fires out a potent, attention-grabbing

sound. Bass is taut and punchy, and the Pioneer

spits out sound effects with breathtaking accuracy”

What Hi-Fi Sound and Vision, September Issue.

“While other manufacturers charge you tens of

pounds for a dedicated iPod dock, the ‘919AH

comes with it’s own connector, complete with

composite video output. The Amp even shows your

album artwork on-screen. It’s a great feature”

What Hi-Fi Sound and Vision, September Issue.

good looking,

series 3 speakers

the series 3 range of speakers combines smart, slim looks with precise sound reproduction and

have been designed with the intention to satisfy music as well as design lovers. their new drivers

and advanced technologies create a dynamic sound restitution, free of internal and external

acoustical disturbance.

The elegant Series 3 line-up consists of three models:

the S-31 floor-standing speaker, the S-31B bookshelf

speaker and the S-31C centre speaker, all available in a

light or black wood coloured finish and with removable

grilles. Complementing the range is a compact sized

black subwoofer for multi-channel settings: the S-51W.

To match sound excellence with avant-garde design,

French product designer Steeve Senescat –the creative

brain behind the EX Series’ appearance- created a

distinctive line of minimalist speakers, assembled with

great attention to detail. Their clever round shaped

cabinet increases rigidity and prevents unwanted

sound from enclosure diffraction. The innovative

design also ensures that all Series 3 speakers have an

identical sound balance when used in a multi-channel

setting, which increases the listener’s feeling of being

immersed in the sound stage.

By removing redundant parts of conventional

speakers while respecting the Pioneer heritage and

characteristics, a balanced and understated style

emerged. The speakers’ slim silhouette with curved

lines and flush mount grilles add to the series’

performance and clean appearance.

MINAMOTO - Only the best

WAZA - Technique, skill and experience

‘Waza’ describes the craftsmanship of

our engineers, nurtured by more than

70 years of knowledge and experience.

It is their ability and skill that give each

LX amplifier and receiver its soul: its

perfected soundstage.

Our engineers rigorously tune and

precisely calibrate the soundstage with

highly advanced sound field correction

technology.

The Advanced Multi-channel Acoustic

Calibration System (Advanced MCACC),

certified by AIR Studios, measures and

analyses the reverb characteristics of

your speakers and optimally tunes

the sound output to your setup.

TAMASHI - In artistic harmony

LX-Series AV Receivers

‘Minamoto’ describes our selection

of only the finest and best suited

materials. Our goal is to achieve the

ideal drive for every channel, perfectly

expressing the original source.

Featuring a unique Direct Energy HD

Amplifier, which harnesses the full

potential of ICEpower analogue Class

D technology; our LX receivers yield

the highest possible efficiency. With

equal drive towards each channel via

the shortest possible signal path, the

construction sets the benchmark in

efficiency and power density.

Our unique Full Band Phase Control

eliminates bass phasing problems

to improve multi-channel sound

fields whilst the Optimum Mode

automatically analyses dialogue, bass

and surround settings to obtain the

best balance at any volume.

When connected to one of our Blu-ray

players via HDMI, the Multi-Channel

Precision Quartz Lock System (PQLS)

‘speed synchronises’ the digital

audio data between the receiver

and the player to deliver jitterless

audio transmission of multi-channel

uncompressed LPCM audio, resulting

in strikingly clear sound.

‘Tamashi’ describes the stage when our

craftsmanship becomes one with the

original. What you see and hear is in

harmony with the artist’s intention.

For more than 70 years, our singleminded

goal has been to reproduce

sound and vision as close to the

original as possible. To fully understand

the intricate requirements – from a

music or film-maker’s perspective – we

have collaborated with the creators,

sound and recording engineers from

both industries.
