Pioneer today unveiled a new line of 5.1-channel surround-sound A/V receivers that will be the first to feature fully integrated Bluetooth functionality, 3D-ready specification, and a "Works with iPhone" certification.
The VSX-820-K has complete compatibility with the iPhone, allowing users to send all the device audio to the receiver. Whether it's watching YouTube, listening to music, or even talking over the phone, everything can be set up with the push of a few buttons.
The 820-K as well as the VSX-520-K also allows simple and seamless streaming of audio content from Bluetooth-enabled devices.
"Pioneer continues to innovate the A/V receiver category with expanded compatibility for iPhone users. The addition of Bluetooth audio streaming allows consumers to keep their phones close to them to answer calls or select their next song without limitations of a wired connection to the receiver," said Pioneer marketing manager David Bales.
Both new receivers also contain the latest HDMI specification (1.4), making them perfectly capable of handling 3D content when it becomes available on Blu-ray later this year.
The 520-K will be priced at $229 while the 820-K will carry an MSRP of $299. Both units will be available this month.
