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 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.

NEW GUI AND REMOTE CONTROL
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 WITH HDR AND BT.2020
Experience four times the HD resolution with 4K UltraHD in the best possible quality according to the most current BT.2020 standard for UHDTV.

DUAL BAND WIFI & BLUETOOTH BUILT-IN

Q Acoustics 3050 Series 5.1 Cinema Pack
''...Q Acoustics has raised its game, once again setting the standards at this price'
Tasked with improving an Award-winning product, the engineers at Q Acoustics have dropped in size and gained performance , making the 3050s a sublime speaker at a budget price.
The changes made over the 2000i Series more than justify the range's overhaul: the material of the twin 16.5cm mid/bass driver is now a paper/aramid (or Kevlar) mix which, according to Q Acoustics, ensures more natural tonality. The 25mm tweeter is decoupled from the main cabinet by butyl rubber, isolating it from any vibrations in the cabinet. The crossover uses higher-grade components, too, limiting distortion and reducing phase problems at the crossover point. The cabinet is made from 15mm MDF panels with a dual-layered 20mm top plate and an even thicker front baffle, which has been further braced to control resonances and increase stiffness. Q Acoustics has also moved the bi-wire terminals from underneath the cabinet to the rear panel, which makes them more accessible, too.
Perfect for every occasion, the new 3000 Series 5.1 Cinema Pack will unleash the full potential of your home cinema electronics.
Its exquisitely detailed sound will convey all the atmosphere, natural dialogue and, when required, the full bodied explosive drama of every movie soundtrack.
But of course, being Q Acoustics loudspeakers, they don’t just deliver fantastic home cinema sound. Every new 3000 Series model is also an outstanding, genuine hi-fi loudspeaker. So the 3000 home cinema pack is also your best choice if you want to enjoy wonderful stereo musical performances.
Cinema Pack Contents:
- 1 x Pair 3010 Speakers
- 1 x Pair 3050 Speakers
- 1 x 3090C Centre Speaker
