Pioneer VSX-831 5.2 Channel A/V Receiver
With its six HDMI ports, the VSX-831 also has sufficient connection reserves for ambitious home theatres. Certainly not all playback devices will match the new UltraHD standard but might provide “only” normal FULL HD. For ease of use and the optimal use of suitable displays, the VSX-831 is therefore equipped with a quality video scaler which can convert full HD to 4K and also output the redesigned GUI user interface in this resolution.

Wharfedale Home Cinema DX-1SE 5.1 Speaker Package
High-quality home cinema can be costly, both financially and in terms of the amount of space it consumes in your living room. For those seeking a more discreet, stylish and affordable solution for genuine surround sound, the DX-1SE 5.1 speaker system from Wharfedale is ideal.

Pioneer VSX-831 5.2 Channel A/V Receiver

Here no eye remains dry – and no streaming option inaccessible

With its six HDMI ports, the VSX-831 also has sufficient connection reserves for ambitious home theatres. Certainly not all playback devices will match the new UltraHD standard but might provide “only” normal FULL HD. For ease of use and the optimal use of suitable displays, the VSX-831 is therefore equipped with a quality video scaler which can convert full HD to 4K and also output the redesigned GUI user interface in this resolution. Sure, HD sound formats such as dts ES or Dolby TrueHD are also supported – the VSX-831 uses their potential through its new 32bit/384kHz DAC better still than previous models in this class.

Digital music delicacies are not only served over HDMI or S/PDIF, but also quite state of the art via network – either by cable or by built-in Dual Band Wi-Fi, and in DLNA streaming in full Studio Master resolution (DSD up to 5.6MHz, PCM up to 192/24). Even in the streaming services, quality defines all the signals. In addition to the popular Spotify Connect, the VSX-831 now also supports Deezer and Tidal, who offer subscriptions at full CD resolution.

On the other hand, whoever prefers to stream directly from their smart phone to the system can simply choose the option that works best at that point, with the compliments of AirPlay, Google Cast and not least the built-in Bluetooth receiver. Designed for maximum openness, nothing stands in the way of the VSX-831 providing listening pleasure.

(*) Deezer, Tidal, Google Cast and FireConnect are available after free firmware update in the summer of 2016. For the latest information on firmware updates, please visit our website or follow us on the social networks.

ADVANCED ROOM CALIBRATION

Advanced MCACC analyses the sound field of your speakers and automatically adjusts their virtual size, level, distance, and response. With the Subwoofer EQ, you can manually set the bass levels for more powerful playback.

STREAMING AND AIRPLAY

As a network player with integrated WLAN, this device plays music files in all of the relevant formats from the home network including high-resolution DSD and FLAC files, naturally gapless and with a convenient app control. Tablets and Smartphones can be seamlessly and wirelessly integrated via AirPlay or without a network via Bluetooth.

HIGH-RESOLUTION SOUND – ON MULTIPLE CHANNELS TOO!

Experience audiophile sounds in full Sound Master resolution, with HighRes downloads of your favourite albums in WAV, ALAC, FLAC and AIFF formats as well as in DSD. For the ultimate realism there is HiRes audio, now also with multiple channels in WAV and FLAC formats.

MUSIC STREAMING WITH GOOGLE CAST

Google Cast uses the same technology as Chromecast and enables uncomplicated music streaming to compatible Pioneer devices. Google Cast-capable apps can be used with Android tablets & smart phones, iPhone, iPad, Chromebook, Mac or Windows computers.

MULTI-ROOM AUDIO WITH FIRECONNECT

The new Pioneer AV receivers with FireConnect enable the concurrent playback of every audio source connected to the AV receiver via an optional wireless speaker. Conveniently control the multiroom playback with track selection and volume via smart phone and tablet.

SPOTIFY, DEEZER & TIDAL

Enjoy maximum musical variety – this AV receiver natively supports Spotify, Deezer and TIDAL. With the current largest music services, you have direct access to millions of songs in the best CD and HD quality.

UNLIMITED CHOICE OF RADIO STATIONS

With more than 100,000 channels, TuneIn has the largest selection of free Internet radio stations covering sports, music, talk and news from around the world.

FULL SYSTEM CONTROL, ONE APP

With the convenient "iControlAV5" app you can then easily control all important receiver functions via smart phone or tablet. Thanks to the now built-in AVNavigators you no longer need to install any software.

NEW GUI AND REMOTE CONTROL

The GUI (Graphical User Interface) of the receiver has been completely overhauled. Simplified structures, a modern font and new graphics enable faster, intuitive navigation and improved interaction with the user.

4K WITH HDR AND BT.2020

Experience four times the HD resolution with 4K UltraHD in the best possible quality according to the most current BT.2020 standard for UHDTV. The built-in video optimisation scales even SD or normal HD content to 4K resolution at up to 60p and the high dynamic range produces an extremely high-contrast, sharp image.

DUAL BAND WIFI & BLUETOOTH BUILT-IN

The built-in Wi-Fi is dual band, supporting both 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz frequency channels, for steady and uninterrupted streaming even of Hi-Res Audio files. Easily stream songs from compatible devices using the built-in Bluetooth wireless technology. This AV receiver features A2DP and Audio/Video Remote Control Profile (AVRCP). Supported codecs include SBC and AAC.

 

Wharfedale Home Cinema DX-1SE 5.1 Speaker Package

The DX-1SE consists of four satellite speakers for the front and rear, plus a similarly diminutive centre speaker and a compact active subwoofer. The speakers take their design cues from the multi-award-winning Diamond standmount speakers, albeit shrunk to a much smaller size – the satellites are just 19cm high.
The DX-1SE replaces the DX-1 HCP, a similarly diminutive speaker package that was universally praised for its excellent ‘sound-per-pound’ performance, earning five-star reviews in What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision and Home Cinema Choice magazines and scoring 9/10 on the Trusted Reviews website. The new package sports a number of improvements, including fine-tuned drivers, increased efficiency and redesigned cabinets with larger internal volumes. The result is improved bass response, more detail and greater sonic scale.



Each DX-1SE Satellite sports a 19mm silk dome tweeter and 75mm mid/bass driver with a woven polypropylene cone – woven polypropylene is used for its ideal combination of lightness, strength and rigidity. The enclosure is an infinite baffle (closed-box) design, which aids the speakers’ ability to be sited in close proximity to a wall without adversely affecting their performance.



The DX-1 Centre incorporates the same silk dome tweeter flanked by two 75mm mid/bass drivers. Its design includes a sophisticated aperiodic loading system consisting of a vent that is filled with resistive porous foam to control airflow. This aids bass response and contributes to a rich and detailed centre channel performance, a critical part of the surround sound experience.



The matching WH-D8 active subwoofer combines a 200mm long-throw bass cone with a 120W amplifier to deliver bass that’s fast, deep and well-defined from an extremely compact unit – just 328x268x322mm (HxWxD). The quality of the subwoofer’s design ensures it integrates superbly with the other speakers in the package, without any hint of bass bloating or overhang. It also sports an ‘auto-power’ facility, automatically switching out of standby when a signal is sensed and back again when it stops.



Available in high-gloss black or high-gloss white, the DX-1SE 5.1 speaker package delivers smart, space-saving contemporary style and exhilarating sound for both movies and music – fast, punchy and detailed, with a sense of scale that belies the diminutive size of the speakers. It’s the perfect way to enjoy authentic and engaging surround sound at a price more akin to a soundbar than a high-quality 5.1 speaker package.
