Pioneer introduces 3 new home cinema systems with 3D compatibility
One of the major enhancements across the range is the systems’ ability to pass 3D video signals over HDMI. The new line-up includes the 5.1-channel HTP-610 a brilliant solution for immersive high definition home cinema sound in the home entertainment space. For those looking to match their home cinema system to their flat screen TV, we offer the 3.1 channel HTP-SB510 sound bar style and the 2.1 channel HTP-FS510 front speaker system.
The HTP-610, HTP-SB510 and HTP-FS510 will be available from Pioneer’s retail network from December 2010 onwards.
The HTP-610 is suited to anyone who wishes to make home cinema core to their living space.
The highly attractive “HTP” product range consists of a main subwoofer unit, incorporating a fully featured home cinema receiver, combined with three speaker set variations. All receiver subwoofer components are finished in a high-gloss, deep black, exuding a clean, minimalist feel that will enhance any living room environment.
Bringing together the best in design with the best in technology, these home cinema systems use the very latest innovations to bring movies to life. Each system includes three of the latest specification HDMI (v1.4a with 3D) inputs. Being fully compatible with upcoming 3D TV broadcast receivers, Blu-ray Disc players and game consoles, these connections allow HD audio to be processed in the system combined with digital transfer of both HD video and audio to a flat screen TV through a single HDMI cable.
Integrated decoders for the most advanced HD audio formats, including Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio, enable the systems to deliver sound to match the breathtaking depth and richness of high definition imagery. Measuring the sound field with the provided microphone, the Multi Channel Acoustic Calibration (MCACC) system creates the ideal acoustic environment. This technology uses the same functionality as a professional sound stage, bringing outstanding audio precision into the entertainment space.
For the ultimate iPhone or iPod experience – without the need for a docking station – all four systems come with a specialist cable providing a complete video and digital audio connection. The digital USB audio connection for iPhone or iPod allows skipping intermediate digital-to-analogue conversion steps, and guarantees the purest possible digital sound quality.
Rounding out these home cinema systems is an intuitive preset remote, which can also be used to control other Pioneer equipment.
