We’re Taking Next-level Audio Up a Notch

Pioneer’s innovative approach to the networked home theater experience starts with the VSX-830-K. Offering a host of new features, the VSX-830-K is one of the most versatile AV receivers, letting you stream your favorite content and control it all from the palm of your hand. For 2015, we’ve added many advanced new features, including High-Definition Copy Protection (HDCP 2.2), built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, a seven-Language icon-based Graphical User Interface (GUI), an Apple® iOS®/Android™ Wi-Fi Setup App, and much more.

 

Go Wireless

Built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth


The VSX-830-K gives you two ways to enjoy your music wirelessly from your iPhone®, BlackBerry®, Android, PC, laptop or any other compatible sources. All 2015 models offer built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technology. Plus, the VSX-830-K is equipped with dual antennas providing Dual Band Wi-Fi (2.4GHZ and 5.8GHZ) for a much greater network range and throughput.

Connecting the VSX-830-K to your home Wi-Fi network is easy with a new Apple iOS and Android App. Simply download the app to your compatible smartphone and walk through the simple connection process. The app transfers all your Wi-Fi settings from the smartphone to the AV receiver.

Join the Resolution Revolution

HDMI 2.0


Offering six HDMI 2.0 inputs, the VSX-830-K can handle 4K Ultra HD video at 60 frames per second, 4:4:4 color sampling, and up to 24-Bit depth. 4K Ultra HD is the latest and most advanced high-definition video display format, with four times the resolution of 1080p. HDMI 2.0 is also backwards compatible with earlier versions of HDMI. Ready to deliver a 4K Ultra HD video signal to any compatible display, the VSX-830-K is designed to support home theater systems that deliver the highest quality picture available today.

 

Upgrade in Advance

HDCP 2.2 Copy Protection


All new 2015 Pioneer AV Receivers support full bandwidth HDMI 2.0 and feature HDCP 2.2 HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Copy Protection) technology ensures your receiver’s compatibility with the many upcoming 4K UltraHD sources and televisions. So when you decide to upgrade your visual experience, your audio experience will already be there.

 

Multiple Music Options

DSD File Playback


In addition to playback of most high-resolution formats, such as FLAC, WAV, AIFF, and Apple Lossless, the VSX-830-K enables playback of DSD files from a networked DLNA® computer or connected USB drive.

 

Easy Setup

Start-up Navi App and Built-In AVNavigator


The VSX-830-K features AVNavigator, a built-in system that simplifies the setup process. Unlike other systems that required an app download or the installation of a CD-ROM, AVNavigator helps you easily connect the VSX-830-K to your network and launch your favorite web browser on virtually any device. The AVNavigator will walk you through the connection and setup of your new receiver. You can even explore new features of your AV Receiver using the Interactive Contents section. Just push a button on the virtual remote control and AVNavigator will activate the feature and explain what it does.

The Start-up Navi App is special app to help you easily set up the AV receiver via Wi-Fi with your smartphone. After opening the package, scan the QR code on the Quick Start Guide with your iPod touch/iPhone/iPad or Android device connected to your home network, and download the Start-up Navi app. As you proceed with the wizard, the network set-up for your AV receiver will be completed smoothly. Then, in coordination with the AVNavigator, the app lets you do all the initial settings of the AV receiver.

     

Iconic Assistance

Updated Icon-Based GUI


The VSX-830-K features an updated icon-based Graphical User Interface (GUI) that makes setup, navigating Internet radio and iPod or iPhone contents more intuitive and universal. Not only are the words on navigation screens accompanied by icons, they can also be set in any of seven different languages.

 

Setup Simplicity

Redesigned Rear Panel


To help make the setup process easier, we’ve improved the design of the rear panel on all 2015 receiver models. The layout is simpler, the spacing is better, the text is easier to read, and the speaker connections are more clearly labeled.

 

Dial In Your Bass

Subwoofer EQ/Dual Subwoofer Output

Along with the addition of independent dual subwoofer output, the VSX-830-K offers a built-in 4-band Subwoofer Equalizer. The Subwoofer EQ determines the location and characteristics of the subwoofer and makes adjustments using four different frequency parameters and an extremely low-latency DSP to reduce phase and timing errors that are often experienced with lesser room calibration systems.

 

Pro Sound for Your Home Theater

Advanced Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration (MCACC®)

Pioneer’s Advanced MCACC helps you create the optimum acoustic environment in any room in the house. Developed over a decade ago with the help of professional recording studios, this technology compensates for differences in speaker size, level, and distance, and automatically equalizes the response. Whether you’re watching the latest Hollywood blockbuster or enjoying high-resolution music, Advanced MCACC will make sure your home theater sounds its best.
