Key Features

A Gamers Delight

The Pioneer VSX-835 and VSX-535 have the latest in HDMI processing including 4K 120Hz pass through for the ultimate gaming experience. The VS835 upgrades to 7 channels of amplification and delivers powerful HDR images and sound with IMAX digitally remastered content—just as the filmmakers intended. Pioneer’s IMAX Enhanced Mode is meticulously optimized to adhere to strict performance standards around color, brightness, contrast, and audio fidelity. Enjoy support for HDR (High Dynamic Range) video including HDR10, HLG, Dolby Vision®, and BT.2020 on both models. Additionally, 4:4:4 color space is also supported.

The VSX-835 and VSX-535 offer 4 In and 1 Out (eARC) HDMI I/O, ARC-ready MAIN OUT, and SUB OUT pass 4K/60p and HDR video from player to compatible TV and projector; and all terminals are HDCP 2.2 compliant.

Enveloping Overhead Sound

The VSX-835 supports DTS:X automatically adapts audio to existing channels and speaker setups, so no specific speaker layout is required. Upping the ante, DTS Virtual:X adds nuanced, three-dimensional sound without height or rear speakers. Dolby Atmos Height Virtualizer also allows you to experience immersive sound without the additional speakers. So, no matter which format your media uses, you’ll get the enveloping sound experience.

Auto Room Tuning

MCACC (Multi-Channel ACoustic Calibration system) auto room tuning featured in both models uses a custom microphone to automatically compensate for differences in speaker size, level, and distance, and equalizes response, so you get the even sound you’re supposed to.

Lossless Quality Restored

Our Advanced Sound Retriever technology restores the output of compressed audio (such as WMA, AAC, and MP3) to their original lossless quality by creating new signals to restore the minor details left out during the compression process.

Easy Connectivity

Whatever audio is playing on your phone, tablet or PC app can be streamed to the receiver with Bluetooth wireless technology. Once the receiver has paired with and remembered your device, it will start playback automatically whenever it detects an incoming Bluetooth audio stream.

Available to order now, the VSX-835 at $499 and VSX-535 at $379. at authorized retailers and
