Pioneer A/V Receivers are part of the “Works with iPhone” and “Made for iPod” program and feature a seamless user experience for iPhone and iPod owners. The new line of receivers allows consumers to simply plug their iPhone or iPod to the A/V receiver and utilize a full-color graphic user interface (GUI) complete with album art, utilize a central remote control option to easily navigate through playlists. The A/V receivers will intuitively turn on the Auto Music-Mute function when a call is received on an iPhone, allowing home audiences to maintain an uninterrupted entertainment experience.

By utilizing two proprietary digital audio enhancement functions – Advanced Sound Retriever (ASR) and Auto Level Control (ALC) – the Pioneer A/V Receivers deliver a high quality listening experience specially designed for portable audio device home integration. Pioneer’s ASR was designed for use with highly-compressed music files to ensure a more dynamic audio experience when played through home audio speakers. Meanwhile, Pioneer’s ALC technology equalizes the fluctuating volume levels that can occur with digital audio tracks and other input sources resulting in a richer user experience that alleviates the need to manually adjust the volume.

Pioneer’s A/V Receivers are available now at Best Buy and other national and regional retailers nationwide for suggested retail prices that range from $299 – $499.

Pioneer’s Home Entertainment and Business Solutions Group develops high definition home theater equipment for discerning entertainment enthusiasts. Its Blu-ray Disc players, A/V receivers and loudspeakers bring a new level of emotion to the HD experience. The company brands include Pioneer and Elite®.
