AV Rant #169: Interview with Pioneer Electronics
Because of a technical malfunction with the Tom and Dina podcast, we’re coming to you today with an interview with Dave Bales of Pioneer Electronics. They are releasing their new line of Pioneer branded AV receivers and want to get the word out. The VSX-520-K and 820-K you already know about. The new ones (just announced today) are the 920, 1020, and 1120-K. These receivers offer unparalleled features for their price point. What can you look forward to? How about HDMI 1.4 and Dolby ProLogic IIz in their entry level VSX-520-K receiver at a $229 price point! As the price goes up you get 1080p upconversion, iPhone/iPod Touch control apps, and a host of other features. Once again bringing you the latest and greatest, this is an AV Rant episode that you’ll not want to miss. For those looking for their weekly fix of Dina, we’ll be recording “Take 2” of this week’s podcast on Friday. Look for it late Friday night or Saturday afternoon.
