Enjoy music from a variety of sources with the Pioneer Elite SX-S30 Stereo Network A/V Receiver. Built-in AirPlay and Bluetooth allow you to wirelessly stream music from compatible audio sources such as computers, MP3 players, smartphones, and tablets. On-board Wi-Fi and Ethernet connectivity gives you the ability to stream music from Internet radio sources and compatible networked devices. Furthermore, the Pioneer Remote app allows you to control the receiver from an Android or iOS smart device.

In addition to the receiver's aforementioned wireless connectivity, the SX-S30 has a digital coaxial, an optical, two stereo RCA, a phono RCA, and four HDMI inputs for connecting a variety of audio sources. There's also a USB port for interfacing devices such as thumb drives, and a headphone output that enables personal listening when connecting headphones. Additionally, this receiver's integrated FM tuner allows you to enjoy free over-the-air content.

Streaming Services & Internet Radio
Enjoy listening to whatever music you like with streaming services such as Pandora and Spotify, and with a future firmware update, TIDAL and Deezer. The receiver is also equipped with TuneIn for enjoying Internet radio. With over 100,000 radio stations, you can listen to free broadcasts of music, sports, news, and talk shows from around the world.
Connect with AirPlay and Wi-Fi
After connecting your SX-S30 to your home network, you can control and access your music library with the remote control, or play music from your phone or tablet using AirPlay.

MCACC Auto Room Tuning
Create an enhanced acoustic environment with Pioneer's MCACC auto room tuning. With the included microphone, the system automatically compensates for differences in speaker size, level, and distance, and equalizes their response. As a solution for the phase lag between the subwoofer and the main channel speakers caused by the network filter, Phase Control compensates the delayed bass to improve synchronize the sound.
Wireless Multi-Room Audio
The SX-S30 will support FireConnect (powered by Blackfire) with a future firmware update. FireConnect is designed to be a stable wireless protocol that streams audio from a compatible receiver to a separately sold, compatible wireless speaker.

    Pioneer SX-S30 reviews

    Elite SX-S30 Stereo Network A/V Receiver is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Class D Network Stereo Receiver with HDMI Inputs The Minister of Interior Design of the Household (my wife) has a piece of furniture for the TV and audio equipment that requires a low profile receiver.� This model has a class D amp.� I would have preferred a class AB amp and not Class D, but class AB receivers are too large for my limited space.� I am no audiophile, but this sounds very good to me especially connected to good speakers.� The wireless interfaces with Apple Play, Chromecast and bluetooth all work well.� Tested with IPHONE, IPAD and Pixel phones and all connected fine.� HDMI ports is a great feature.� If you need low profile network receiver that is 2 channel only (not 5.1 or 7.1) with HDMI inputs, check this one out.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good piece of electronic hardware from Pioneer Got this down few days back, arrived on time, excellent service.� Initial setting up may take few minutes, but once you are set, you will find that� this piece is a real beauty, with unbelievable convenience of controlling all the functions via smartphone (using freely downloadable app). In built network/wifi feature is easy to set up and I am listening to many radio channels I used to miss (from UK) such as Jazz FM, Classic FM..... with no hassle now., with the added lovely convenience of� controlling the whole unit from the phone, from anywhere within the house.� In built equalizer adds a greater variations and controls of sounds, and output is really heavy, punchy with both highs and lows covered well. A really good piece of creation by Pioneer..� I am yet to hook up a subwoofer and taste the lowest frequency range, however, it does deliver exceptional performance with my bose speakers
