It’s equipped to suit 4K/60p-ready media players, TV displays, and projectors with pass-through support for HDR10, HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma), Dolby Vision, and BT.2020 colour space via HDCP 2.2-compliant HDMI terminals.

Power is delivered via Pioneer's Direct Energy Amplification, with a number of inputs (including HDMI and a phono support) on offer for hi-res audio and pure analogue sources.

The VSX-933 comes with support with various platforms for multi-room audio (including Chromecast built-in, DTS Play-Fi technology and FlareConnect), which work over 5 GHz/2.4 GHz Wi-Fi3 and can be managed via smartphone or tablet. Streaming services such as Amazon Music, Spotify, Tidal and Deezer are also supported.

Pioneer’s latest receiver also features 135 W/ch (6 ohms, 1 kHz, THD 1.0 %, 1-in Driven) and has an ‘ECO’ mode for conserving energy use.

The VSX-933 will be released in March, available in black or silver.
