Sorry, This product is no longer available



An AV receiver is the true hub of any multichannel home cinema set-up, existing as the main unit for all of your sources (Blu-ray, Sky, Xbox, Playstation, Apple TV, etc) to feed a signal to, and for your speakers to receive a signal from. Most quality AV receivers will upscale the video quality and optimise the signal for the best possible picture. Many AV receiver models on the market today boast a vast plethora of excellent features and quirky inputs, but sometimes neglect to prioritise the build quality, mechanical integrity or the general sound performance of the receiver

Pioneer are a renowned and highly regarded hifi and audio-visual component manufacturer who's expertise and experience spans over many decades. The Pioneer design philosophy is simple; to offer the most superlative performance from the best possible price, at every corner of the market. The VSX-831 is an embodiment of this philosophy and features high quality materials and advanced construction methods, resulting in an robust and worthwhile build quality.

The Pioneer VSX-831 is capable of outputting 140W per channel. This 5.2 receiver has 7 HDMI inputs being able to connect a wide range of devices through your receiver, to receive a much better sound. Pioneer has now upgraded the DAC to 32bit produced by AKM.

With dedicated subwoofer outputs, the VSX-831 has phase control to compensate for the usual delayed bass. This control makes the high and mid frequencies synchronized, creating a more dynamic and clear sound.
