Pioneer VSX-832 overview

  • 1Description

Enjoy 4K Ultra HD upscaling and pass-through with HDR and 3D support via HDMI with the Pioneer VSX-832 5.1-Channel Network A/V Receiver. It produces up to 80W of power per channel at 8 Ohms for room-filling sound. MCACC sound optimization will allow you to tailor the sound to your room's specific acoustics. Built-in Bluetooth connectivity lets you listen to music wirelessly from your favorite Bluetooth-capable devices, and integrated Wi-Fi lets you stream Internet content. You can also attach a USB drive to the USB port on the front panel to play your stored multimedia files. The VSX-832 is equipped with four HDMI inputs and one HDMI output. The HDMI output supports ARC for the reproduction of TV-based audio, such as your TV's built-in Netflix or Hulu apps.

DTS:X is designed to leverage object-based audio to enable an immersive audio experience. It can automatically adapt the audio to the existing channels and speaker system, so no specific speaker layout is required.
Reflex Optimizer
When using Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers, high directivity sound from the unit reflects off the ceiling, while low directivity sound directly reaches the ears. The different pathways cause a phase shift, making the sound seem out of sync. The Reflex Optimizer, which uses Phase Control technology, is designed to adjust this shift and improve the localization of the sound image by aligning the frequencies with those of the floor speakers.
HDR Pass-Through
The VSX-832 supports pass through HDR10 and Dolby Vision on all HDMI inputs, which also support 4K, BT.2020, and HDCP 2.2.
MCACC Auto Room Tuning
With the included microphone, MCACC (Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration System) is designed to automatically compensate for differences in speaker size, level, and distance, and equalize response accordingly to help you achieve an enhanced acoustic environment.
Synchronized Sound with Phase Control
Phase Control is designed to compensate for the phase lag between the subwoofer and the main-channel speakers caused by the bass management filter for enhanced sound synchronization.
Built-In Dual-Band Wi-Fi
The built-in Wi-Fi is dual-band, supporting both 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz frequency channels for a steady and uninterrupted streaming of audio files.
Internet Radio & Online Music
Enjoy a nearly limitless flow of music, sports, talk, and news entertainment from Internet radio stations and online music services, including Pandora, Spotify, TuneIn, TIDAL, and Deezer.
Dolby Atmos for 3.1.2-Channel Audio with Surround Enhancer, Available via a Future Firmware Update
Following a future firmware update, the VSX-832 will support up to 3.1.2-channel Dolby Atmos audio. Surround Enhancer, developed by Dolby Laboratories, Inc., is a virtual speaker technology based on Head-Related Transfer Function (HRTF). With DSP, virtual surround speakers deliver the sound that usually comes from surround speakers. The 3.1.2-channel setup is virtually expanded to 5.1.2-channels to create a 3D surround sound field.
FireConnect Wireless Streaming, Available via a Future Firmware Update
FireConnect, scheduled to be made available via a future firmware update, mirrors network audio and external analog sources connected to the master component – from streaming services to vinyl records – on separately sold FireConnect-compatible speakers in other rooms. Music selection, speaker grouping, and playback management across the home are built into the Pioneer Remote app for iOS and Android.
Chromecast built-in, Available via a Future Firmware Update
Chromecast built-in, which is scheduled to be made available via a future firmware update, will allow you to use your mobile device to stream your favorite music, radio, or podcasts to your system. You can control the audio from nearly anywhere in the house using Chromecast-enabled apps running on your personal device, such as an iPhone, iPad, Android device, Mac or Windows laptop, and Chromebook.
DTS Play-Fi, Available via a Future Firmware Update
DTS Play-Fi, scheduled to be made available via a future firmware update, is designed to wirelessly stream any audio content from any compatible mobile device to the VSX-832 and DTS Play-Fi compatible audio systems, creating a multi-room system in your home. You can stream different sources to different speakers at the same time from the DTS Play-Fi app.

    Pioneer VSX-832 reviews

    VSX-832 5.1-Channel Network A/V Receiver is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pioneer VSX-832 A couple of things about this unit. You have to use the remote for almost everything. Maybe I'm old school but I like just pushing a button to switch over to Cd/ tuner or for tuner pre-sets. Another negative, at least for my, is that it needs to be hooked up to a TV to program the internet. I know it is a surround sound receiver but I bought it primarily for the internet/blue tooth capability. Now its a pain to run it to a TV. The volume knob is kind of weird too. Turn and turn one way or the other to adjust volume and then keep turning to get it to a level you want. Oh, so much work. Otherwise it is a good quality receiver lots of features. It was really easy to pair with my Bluetooth.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Receiver I have now had this receiver for a month - replaced a 10 year old Onkyo receiver. This receiver has all the bells & whistles a 7.2 would have, just not a 7.2. I did several comparisons side by side with other brands, Denon, Onkyo, Sony etc...... this receiver has all the same features a higher priced 7.2 has - just remember this is only a 5 speaker system.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Simple and Cheap 4K HDR Receiver Simply 4K HDR receiver. I just needed something cheap and simple to get signal from Apple TV to TV + support my 5.1 Audio System.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fails where it matters Just like their competitors, Pioneer created an impressive package of features combined with decent quality sound output. I'm using it for both 2 channel/subwoofer music setup, as well as a 3.1 setup for movies and TV shows. On paper it has all that I need. However, It's not trivial to keep its myriad of features working well. The VSX-832 fails to deliver on its streaming and connectivity promise. The iOS based remote app regularly fails to connect with the receiver, Spotify streaming has an odd pause when switching between tracks, and more than once stopped working altogether. Arguably this could be the result of my own network and WiFi setup. I'm a reasonably technical person and my WiFi + Internet connectivity is reasonably solid, something I double check when I'm running into those kind of issues. It seems to me that Pionner's engineers have a way to go before theirs could be considered a stable platform supporting an otherwise impressive set of features. I suspect the other brands may not be all that much better. In fact I returned a Yamaha receiver that had its own issues and which ultimately failed. On positive note: the iOS app, when working, is excellent. This is not a superfluous feature. Many of the Receiver's functions are directly controlled in the app (e.g. EQ, channel loudness etc.) and its user interface is quite nice, especially compared to the ones I've seen from Sony and Yamaha. There's very little difference between dominant brands in this category. It's the small things (controlling app) and how well they're executed (network connectivity and stream handling) that can distinguish one from the other. And in this regard, Pioneer failed to deliver. Final work on their support: from my experience it's quite ineffectual.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A solid basic receiver I really appreciate the sound quality of this receiver,� and it's simplicity. I have a 5.1 speaker system and have no intentions of upgrading to a more "advanced" layout, so I didn't want to spend the money for a 7.1 receiver. This receiver does the job. I don't use the networking or bluetooth features much so can't really address those.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pioneer VSX-832 5.1 Receiver Purchased to update my aging amp. It works great with my existing speakers and the audio setup is great. The only down side is for the time its been on the market still no firmware update for Dolby Atmos.
