A receiver can be an afterthought for some home theater buyers, rather than the central tent-pole of their media experience. Those people haven't had a chance to fully consider the advanced features that a receiver like the VSX-1023-K brings to the table. Pioneer has thoughtfully provided for every home entertainment eventuality, with top-notch video and audio, as well as a truly comprehensive suite of connectivity features to simplify integration with PC, Mac, iPhone, iPad, and Android.
Video Connections for Every Device
The VSX-1023-K features six HDMI inputs, including one input located on the front panel that is MHL-capable for mobile devices. 3D is supported, along with Deep Color (36-bit), x.v. Color and Ultra HD (4K) pass-through.
Audio at the Forefront
The VSX-1023-K is designed to meet the expectations of the most sophisticated music enthusiast. With more customers interested in hi-res digital downloads, Pioneer AV receivers have broadened support for digital audio formats streamed over a home network. For the first time ever, there is support for playback of 192/24-bit AIFF and 96/24-bit Apple Lossless file formats. MCACC calibration lets users tailor speaker response to a particular room with the included measurement microphone.
Unparalleled Smartphone Compatibility
The VSX-1023-K is Made for iPhone® and Made for iPad® certified, allowing not only audio playback but charging of your iOS device, including the new iPad mini. Add support for Apple's AirPlay® wireless music streaming, and the VSX-1023-K is by far one of the most Apple® friendly AV receivers available. The receiver also offers HTCTM Connect, the only unified solution for streaming music from your AndroidTM smartphone. Enhanced control apps, newly developed for iOS and Android, simplify operation, and for many users will replace the included remote control.
