Pioneer revamps home audio range with THX-certified AV receivers

Pioneer India has upgraded its home audio line-up to include the LX series AV receivers and home theatre packages, in addition to the regular AV receivers, HTIBs (Home Theatre in a Box), Blu-ray players, and DVD Players. The wide acceptance of the Blu-ray format and multichannel audio solutions has warmed the Indian consumers’ to AV receivers, Blu-ray players, and home theatre systems. Pioneers audio range caters to the entry-level HTIB as well as high-end users who opt for THX-certified AV receivers for their customised home theatre setups.


Pioneer’s LX Series AV Receivers reside in the premium segment and sport both THX and Air Studio certification. The revamped LX series includes models such as SC-LX86, SC-LX76, and SC-LX56. The amplifiers across the range are powered by Class D amplifiers, and feature DSD file playback, Android compatibility over MHL, and Pioneer control application - iControlAV2012 for Android-based devices as well as for the iPod touch, the iPhone, and the iPad.

The lower end of Pioneer’s product spectrum has also been revamped with VSX-1122-K, VSX-922-K, VSX-822-K, and VSX-522-K AV receivers. These receivers incorporate some of Pioneer’s proprietary implementations such as PQLS (Precision Quartz Locking System) and the ability to use your smartphone instead of a remote control. Airjam is another Pioneer in-house tech that lets users create, edit, and play common playlists with different phones at the same time, without any hassles with cables and interconnects. However, this feature is available only in select models.


The new range also includes next iterations of the Todoroki series home theatre package - HTP-RS42 and HTP-RS32. Additionally, the company has also launched two new home theatre packages: HTP-822ES and HTP-RS52, incorporating greater focus on connectivity features, which includes the Airjam application, and connectivity with smartphones and tablets.
