If 5.1 channels of surround sound is all you need, it can be tough to find all the computer and smartphone connectivity features that define the modern home theater receiver. The VSX-823-K is the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, a 5.1 receiver that does it all, without losing sight of the power and finesse that discerning customers demand.
Video Connections for Every Device
The VSX-823-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-823-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-823-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-823-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.
