  • Five (5) HDMI inputs with full support for 3D video content (Blu-ray, broadcast and gaming). It can send 1080p signals to your HD display for exceptional image quality for your entertainment sources
  • Uses specific Dolby Digital and DTS codecs to reproduce an enveloping 7.1 channel surround sound experience. The unit decodes Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital EX, Dolby Pro Logic II, Dolby Pro Logic IIz, DTS-ES, and DTS Neo:6. It also decodes the following HD audio formats: Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus, DTS-HD Master Audio, and DTS-HD High-Resolution Audio
  • Compatible with Blu-ray HD audio, so it offers both DTS-HD Master Audio and High-Resolution technologies. DTS-HD Master Audio supports bitrates up to 24.5 Mbps, 7.1 discrete channels of 96KHz/24-bit audio, and is ideal for HDMI Version 1.3a cables. DTS-HD High-Resolution Audio also offers 7.1 discrete channels of 96KHz/24-bit audio, but only supports bitrates up to 6Mbps
  • Dolby Pro Logic IIz offers additional “front height” channels to fully immerse you in your movies, music and games. This helps to create a more spacious surround sound for a compelling experience, and also provides a wide range of choices for speaker positioning to optimize sound in almost any room
  • Compatible with AirPlay, you can stream music from your iTunes to the VSX-1021-K and play it through your home theater system. Connect the receiver to your home network via Ethernet or Pioneer’s AS-WL300 wireless adapter (not included) for playback from your connected Apple device or networked computer
  • Front-panel USB 2.0 port lets you connect and even charge your iPad, iPod or iPhone. The included USB/video cable lets you instantly access music, videos, streaming content, and photos stored on your Apple devices and supports iTunes album art
  • Pioneer’s exclusive AirJam application can be downloaded for free onto your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad. With the Pioneer AS-BT200 Bluetooth adapter (not included) you can pair up to four Apple devices via Bluetooth to share music and create playlists
  • iControlAV2 is the second generation app of its kind from Pioneer Home Electronics that allows you to literally control your new Pioneer A/V Receiver with your iPad or iPhone. Friends and family will be truly amazed as you take full control of your home theater sound in a whole new way
  • Advanced Sound Retriever technology improves the overall sound quality of compressed audio formats such as MP3, WMA, and AAC formats. It employs digital sound processing technology that helps bring CD quality sound back to compressed 2-channel audio by restoring sound pressure and smoothing jagged artifacts that occur after compression
  • Anchor Bay video processing allows this receiver to convert analog video sources to HDMI through a single cable. With lower resolution video, you can upscale your picture to digital 1080p to match the resolution of your HD display. This ensures you’ll enjoy stunningly clear video from virtually any source
  • Allows for Bluetooth wireless connectivity with your iPhone, Blackberry or Android smartphone or other Bluetooth-enabled sources like your laptop (adapter not included)
  • Pioneer’s Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration System (MCACC) is included with this receiver. This technology detects speakers, and then sets levels, delays and crossovers, as well as measuring room acoustics
  • Pioneer’s AV Navigator uses your iPad or networked PC to communicate directly with the VSX-1021-K to guide you through speaker setup, MCACC room calibration, sound optimization and firmware update
