Create the optimum acoustic environment with Pioneer’s MCACC (Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration System), developed with the expertise of professional recording studios. With the custom microphone, the system automatically compensates for differences in speaker size, level and distance, and equalises response.
When amplifying multi-channel audio signals, receivers use a Low Pass Filter (LPF) to process low-frequency signals for subwoofer output. This causes phase shift of the low-frequency signals compared to the main channel signals, and the delayed bass makes the sound lack synchronisation. Pioneer’s Phase Control technology effectively eliminates phase lag and reproduces clearer midand high-range sound. You can feel the bass vibrating the air and deeper voices in films, and the groove of the performer in music content. The "Phase Control" Compensates for the Delay of Low-Frequency Sound
The front panel USB input terminal allows straightforward connection to a USB memory stick. This plug and play connectivity enables you to easily play music files or watch JPEG pictures.
