Pioneer Elite 7.2-Channel WiFi A/V Receiver
This receiver unleashes the full potential of your home theater with rich, room-filling audio and high-resolution video. To cut down on cable clutter, you can wirelessly connect it to devices via WiFi and Bluetooth.
Hear the Action Unfolding Around You
With a full speaker setup (sold separately), you’ll feel like you’re in the theater when watching your favorite movie, or in the broadcast booth when watching your favorite team. 7.2-channel surround sound stages immersive, cinematic audio by supporting seven total speakers in front of, beside, and behind you, creating a near-360° soundscape that lets you pinpoint details as precise as a twig snapping in the forest, or a referee whistling from the sideline. The addition of dedicated subwoofers heightens this realism with rich low frequencies, which do everything from intensifying explosions to making hushed dialogue easier to understand.
Streamline Your Entertainment Setup
Cut down on home theater clutter by using the receiver as a central hub for your devices. An array of HDMI ports and HDMI pass-throughs lets you connect Blu-ray players, streaming devices, and video game consoles, saving you the hassle of manually switching inputs.
Bluetooth: Stream Wireless Music, Internet Radio, and Podcasts
Bluetooth lets you stream wireless music from an enabled mobile device, leaving you free to mingle with guests, clean the house, or do yoga—all without interrupting the music. Moreover, Bluetooth plays your favorite songs over the system’s speakers, filling the room with richer sound than most smartphones, tablets, or laptops can.

If you’re going to name your company Pioneer, you better back it up. Fortunately for the electronics firm with that name, it has done so for several decades, designing innovations that soon became ubiquitous, such as the laser disc (a precursor to CDs and DVDs), automotive CD player, car GPS, DVD player, and plasma HD display. The company that is now Pioneer dates back to 1938, when Tokyo resident Nozomu Matsumoto opened a speaker shop in his garage. He couldn’t have imagined many of the products Pioneer makes today, with state-of-the-art stereo-speaker equipment for the car and home, as well as DJ equipment that enables users to finally create the long-clamored-for dubstep remix of “Mary Had a Little Lamb.”
