The Advanced Sound Retriever upgrades the output of compressed audio such as WMA, MPEG-4 AAC, and MP3, to the level of CD sound. The technology creates new signals to restore the minor details left out duringthe compression process.
In addition to 2-channel sound with the left and right speakers, 5.1-channel sound has a centre speaker, left/right surround speakers, and a subwoofer. So DVD or Blu-ray movie soundtracks will give you the sensation of sound moving all around, letting you fully immerse in the viewing experience.

Pioneer’s Phase Control technology effectively eliminates phase lag and reproduces clearer midand high-range sound. You can feel the bass vibrating the air and deeper voices in films, and the groove of the performer in music content.
The feature lets you take advantage of the highest quality video source, by passing through 4K/60p /4:4:4 signals for viewing on a compatible display.
