standard, enabling vividly rich coloration.

MCACC Auto Room Tuning
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. As an innovative
solution for the phase lag between the subwoofer and the main channel
speakers caused by the network filter, Phase Control compensates the
delayed bass to improve sound synchronisation.
New User-friendly GUI
The newly developed GUI offers smooth operation with advanced
features and design. You can easily set up the AV receiver straight out
of the box by following the step-by-step guidance. The network setup
and MCACC menus are also available on the GUI.
