Pioneer's sub £500 AV Receiver, the VSX 900 series has been amongst our favourite AV Receivers at this price point for some years now. The new VSX 924 certainly hasn't given us any reason to change our minds.
The VSX 924 oozes with all the latest technologies & features including Bluetooth, Airplay & DLNA streaming, Internet radio, Spotify Connect built in, HDMI 2.0 with Ultra HD 4K upscaling, a high quality SABRE DAC, Hi Res audio support inc DSD, Advanced room calibration (MCACC) & iControlAV5 app to name a few.
Pioneer quote 150 watts of power which is perfect for driving budget to high end sub sat packages, we particularly like both B&W's MT50 or Monitor Audio's R90HT1 5.1 solutions. It doesn't have to stop there though, the VSX 924 is a 7.2 capable amplifier meaning you can run 7 satellites with multiple subs, it also means instead of running a 7.2 setup you can assign the 6th & 7th speaker outputs to bi-amp and drive a larger set of floorstanding left & right speakers safely & efficiently. We really like Q Acoustic's 2050i, 2000c, 2020i & 2070i or Monitor Audio's Bronze BX5, BX Centre, BXFX & BXW10 5.1 packages.
Pioneer never fails to impress with its crystal clear detail & deep controlled bass. Music is clean & crisp with excellent timing with a awesomely quite noise floor, however Movies are where this amp really makes it's mark, whether your getting scared watching the latest horror, getting blown away from the latest action, or just having fun watching the latest animation, we have struggled to find a AV Receiver that makes us jump out of our seats, puts that smile on our faces or creates this much laughter quite like the VSX 924.
