What customers say about "Features"
Pioneer VSX-831 5.2 Network AV Receiver with Bluetooth - Black
  • The 4k upscaling actually makes a difference with resolutions less than 4k. I was surprised to see a difference.
  • It comes with MCACC room correction system and includes the calibration microphone.
  • The bonus is there is an app called icontrol and when your lazy you can configure volume and speaker personal volume with a touch of a button.
  • Love the acoustics auto tuning. Amazing 4K 60P switching for relatively little money.
  • A lot of audio features like Dolby Atmos is not added available to this device.

  • Excellent picture and sound, all features work but did need the firmware upgrade installing to get Dolby Atmos.
  • Setup was easy and the remote is not overly cluttered with buttons.
  • Good quality and features worth the money and a great update on my old Kenwood 5.1.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
Pioneer VSX-831 5.2 Network AV Receiver with Bluetooth - Black
  • Most impressive is the provision of six HDMI inputs, three of which offer 4K (60P) and HDCP 2.2 support.
  • Microphone sound set up is pretty easy. This also has a phono input - another nice feature.
  • A whole mountain of connectors, including 6 HDMI, 2 subwoofer outputs. Powerful and rich, detailed sound.
  • One of the minor negatives is apart from the headphone socket there is no other audio out.
  • Unhappily there are one optical input, often I need a couple of this.
Pioneer VSX-832 5.1 Channel AV Receiver, Internet Radio, Black
  • Features like Bluetooth, WiFi, and 4K HDMI 2.2 works great.
  • I enjoy the Wi-Fi connectivity, which was easy to set up.
  • Bluetooth connectivity to my iphone & ipad and other devices works very good.
  • No issues with connectivity to my wireless network hard drive, which has many videos and music on it.
