Pioneer’s new 3D home cinema systems

Pioneer brings four new home cinema systems with 3D compatibility for the joy of movie enthusiasts. The new line-up includes two 5.1-channel models and the 3.1 channel HTP-SB510 bar-style and the 2.1 channel HTP-FS510 front speaker system.

The “HTP” line-up comes in a clean high-gloss, deep black design, fully compatible with upcoming 3D TV broadcast receivers, Blu-ray Disc players, game consoles and each model includes three of the latest specification HDMI (v1.4a with 3D) inputs.

The systems’ integrated decoders supports HD audio formats, including Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio, and feature Multi Channel Acoustic Calibration technology, which via microphone “measure” the sound field and creates “the ideal acoustic environment”. Also all four systems are compatible with iPhone/ iPod and include USB audio connection, as well a preset remote, which can also be used to control other Pioneer equipment.
