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

  • Offering six HDMI 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. 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 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.

Well-Connected - Apple AirPlay, HTC Connect, and DLNA 1.5 certified

  • The VSX-830-K gives you instant access to your favorite content and allows you to control it with your smartphone or tablet. As a networked receiver, it supports Apple’s AirPlay wireless music streaming technology, allowing you to enjoy your favorite music with your iPhone, iPod or iTunes anywhere in the house.
  • Additionally, the VSX-830-K supports HTC Connect, the only unified approach for streaming music wirelessly from select compatible Android smartphones. HTC Connect is built right into your phone’s music player, making it easy to wirelessly stream your favorite music to your receiver — no separate app required.
