Pioneer VSX-831 AV Receiver

Pioneer VSX-831 AV Receiver

Here no eye remains dry – and no streaming option inaccessible

With its six HDMI ports, the VSX-831 also has sufficient connection reserves for ambitious home theatres. Certainly not all playback devices will match the new UltraHD standard but might provide “only” normal FULL HD. For ease of use and the optimal use of suitable displays, the VSX-831 is therefore equipped with a quality video scaler which can convert full HD to 4K and also output the redesigned GUI user interface in this resolution. Sure, HD sound formats such as dts ES or Dolby TrueHD are also supported – the VSX-831 uses their potential through its new 32bit/384kHz DAC better still than previous models in this class.

Digital music delicacies are not only served over HDMI or S/PDIF, but also quite state of the art via network – either by cable or by built-in Dual Band Wi-Fi, and in DLNA streaming in full Studio Master resolution (DSD up to 5.6MHz, PCM up to 192/24). Even in the streaming services, quality defines all the signals. In addition to the popular Spotify Connect, the VSX-831 now also supports Deezer and Tidal, who offer subscriptions at full CD resolution.

On the other hand, whoever prefers to stream directly from their smart phone to the system can simply choose the option that works best at that point, with the compliments of AirPlay, Google Cast and not least the built-in Bluetooth receiver. Designed for maximum openness, nothing stands in the way of the VSX-831 providing listening pleasure.



Advanced MCACC Room Calibration

Advanced MCACC analyses the sound field of your speakers and automatically adjusts their virtual size, level, distance, and response. With the Subwoofer EQ, you can manually set the bass levels for more powerful playback.



Streaming and AirPlay

As a network player with integrated WLAN, this device plays music files in all of the relevant formats from the home network including high-resolution DSD and FLAC files, naturally gapless and with a convenient app control. Tablets and Smartphones can be seamlessly and wirelessly integrated via AirPlay or without a network via Bluetooth.



High-resolution sound – on multiple channels too!

Experience audiophile sounds in full Sound Master resolution, with HighRes downloads of your favourite albums in WAV, ALAC, FLAC and AIFF formats as well as in DSD. For the ultimate realism there is HiRes audio, now also with multiple channels in WAV and FLAC formats.



Music streaming with Google Cast

Google Cast uses the same technology as Chromecast and enables uncomplicated music streaming to compatible Pioneer devices. Google Cast-capable apps can be used with Android tablets & smart phones, iPhone, iPad, Chromebook, Mac or Windows computers.



Multi-room audio with FireConnect

The new Pioneer AV receivers with FireConnect enable the concurrent playback of every audio source connected to the AV receiver via an optional wireless speaker. Conveniently control the multiroom playback with track selection and volume via smart phone and tablet.



Spotify, Deezer, TIDAL

Enjoy maximum musical variety – this AV receiver natively supports Spotify, Deezer and TIDAL. With the current largest music services, you have direct access to millions of songs in the best CD and HD quality.




With more than 100,000 channels, TuneIn has the largest selection of free Internet radio stations covering sports, music, talk and news from around the world.




With the convenient "iControlAV5" app you can then easily control all important receiver functions via smart phone or tablet. Thanks to the now built-in AVNavigators you no longer need to install any software.




The GUI (Graphical User Interface) of the receiver has been completely overhauled. Simplified structures, a modern font and new graphics enable faster, intuitive navigation and improved interaction with the user.



4k HDR

Experience four times the HD resolution with 4K UltraHD in the best possible quality according to the most current BT.2020 standard for UHDTV. The built-in video optimisation scales even SD or normal HD content to 4K resolution at up to 60p and the high dynamic range produces an extremely high-contrast, sharp image. 



Dual Band WiFi & Bluetooth built-in

The built-in Wi-Fi is dual band, supporting both 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz frequency channels, for steady and uninterrupted streaming even of Hi-Res Audio files. Easily stream songs from compatible devices using the built-in Bluetooth wireless technology. This AV receiver features A2DP and Audio/Video Remote Control Profile (AVRCP). Supported codecs include SBC and AAC.

Dali Zensor 3 Speaker Package (5.1)


Dali Zensor 3 Speakers


Dali Zensor 3 Speakers


Dimensions (H x W x D):351 x 205 x 293



Making sense! That’s what ZENSOR 3 is up to, packing as much legacy and music as possible into a slim and compact bookshelf speaker cabinet that you can carry home under your arm.


The versatile ZENSOR 3 is ideal as all-round stereo loudspeaker preferably in small to medium sized rooms. It even works excellently as front speaker in a 2.1 surround set-up or as back speaker in 5.1 systems including subwoofer, as the distinguished and discreet sound resource it is.




ZENSOR 3 is the new addition to the hugely popular and successful ZENSOR series. This large stand mount speaker has been designed for the customer who wants a little more bass output than the ZENSOR 1, without the need for a floor standing speaker such as the ZENSOR 5 or 7. The ZENSOR 3 features the same 7’’ driver found in the ZENSOR 7, and the 25mm tweeter used in the rest of the ZENSOR series.

Dali E-9F subwoofer

Dali E-9F Subwoofer


The new subwoofer from DALI features a 9" woofer, capable of moving lots of air with power and precision. The cone is made from pure aluminium for maximum stiffness and a becoming exterior. Furthermore, the heavy magnet system wields a massive 4-layer, long-stroke voice coil. All in all, the heavy-duty abilities of this "motor system" ensure that the woofer

always follows the signal from the amplifier!

The heart of this subwoofer is the 170W RMS Class D amplifier with a highly linear response. Embracing a classic DALI trademark, it simply acts as a total low frequency extension of your AV system. The result is a powerful, well-balanced bass reproduction and flawless integration with your speakers.

In addition, the integrated limiter helps protecting your subwoofer against overloading.The back plate of SUB E-9F features controls for volume adjustment, phase, and upper cut-off frequency, while the power on/off function works automatically via signal detection. And with the options for LFE or LINE inputs, this subwoofer easily accompanies any AV set up. SUB E-9F is elevated from the floor by cone shaped rubber feet, while a down-firing bass port allows positioning directly against the wall.

The DALI SUB-9F is recommended as compliment to the ZENSOR series and is compatible with all DALI loudspeakers as the perfect completion of a DALI surround set up.

Up to 90 Day Returns!

Returns are easy and flexible. We will accept returned goods up to 90 days from purchase with the following restrictions as summarised below. For more details please read our Terms & Conditions of Sale, a link is shown at the bottom of the home page.

Changing your Mind
It's OK to change your mind but please be aware that all goods must be returned in as new, unused and re-saleable condition. This means that all packaging must be intact, all accessories are complete in their original wrappers and any free items are also returned with the goods. Essentially the product must be returned in the same condition as you would expect to receive a new unit in. In all cases the cost of returning the goods will be the customer's responsibility. All faulty items must be returned complete and will be repaired under the manufacturer's warranty.


How we Handle Returns
Depending on how long you have had the goods there are different options availble to you. In the case of faulty items, if the item fails due to a manufacturing fault between 1 and 28 days from delivery we will exchange it for a brand new one of the same model. Any items which are found faulty after 28 days from delivery will be repaired under the manufacturers warranty. For returns where you have changed your mind, please find our policy below:


This is were you return your item and we will exchange it for another item of equal or higher value. If the item you wish to change to is of higher value you only pay the difference. If the item is of a lower value we will issue you with a credit note for the difference which you can spend with us at a later date.

Credit Note
This is where you return your item and we issue you with a credit note which you can use against another purchase with us.

This is where you return your item and we issue a refund back to the same method you paid with. e.g. the same credit card. This is not available after 14 days, only exchange or credit note is available after 14 days.

25% Restocking Fee
If your item is returned to us between 29 and 90 days from delivery we will charge a restocking fee of 25% of the price you paid for the item initially. This will be deducted from the value of the exchange or credit note which is issued to you. This is because  technology in the AV marketplace moves fast, and as a result the value of items decrease very quickly.

Please note we do not accept returns after 90 days, except for repairs under warranty.

To complete your order please call us on 0800 634 4484
9am to 6pm Mon-Fri, 9am to 5.30pm Sat.
