Next Generation Video Standard Ready

The VSX-532 is ready to pass through the next generation video standard HDR (High Dynamic Range), which was adopted by Ultra HD Bluray™. HDR is a technology that drastically expands the brightness peak, providing a higher contrast between light and dark images, which creates even more life-like pictures.

MCACC Auto Room Tuning

Create the optimum acoustic environment with Pioneer’s MCACC (Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration System), developed with the expertise of professional recording studios. With the custom microphone, the system automatically compensates for differences in speaker size, level and distance, and equalizes response.

Synchronized Sound with Phase Control

When amplifying multi-channel audio signals, receivers use a Low Pass Filter (LPF) to process low-frequency signals for subwoofer output. This cause’s phase shift of the low-frequency signals compared to the main channel signals, and the delayed bass makes the sound lack synchronization. Pioneer’s Phase Control technology effectively eliminates phase lag and reproduces clearer mid- and high-range sound. You can feel the bass vibrating the air and deeper voices in films, and the groove of the performer in music content.

Master Quality with Dolby TrueHD/ DTS-HD Master Audio

The VSX-532 supports Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio surround soundtracks, letting you experience the world of true high definition entertainment from Blu-ray Discs. The lossless codecs are bit-for-bit identical to the studio master.

Enjoy Quality Sound from Compressed Audio

The Advanced Sound Retriever restores the output of compressed audio such as WMA, AAC, and MP3, to the level of CD sound. The technology creates new signals to restore the minor details left out during the compression process.

Built-in Bluetooth Wireless Technology

With the built-in Bluetooth Wireless Technology (ver. 3.0), you can easily stream songs from compatible devices. The VSX-532 features A2DP profile, with support for SBC and AAC codecs.

Front USB Input

The front panel USB input terminal allows straightforward connection to a USB memory stick. This plug and play connectivity enables you to easily play music files.
