Pioneer Announces New Elite Receiver Lineup

Pioneer Electronics will begin shipping five new A/V receivers this summer, under its premium Elite sub-brand. All five models have many network-entertainment features, including built-in AirPlay support, for steaming music from an iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, or iTunes library on a PC or Mac. Ethernet connectivity is built-in, and an optional Wi-Fi adapter is available. Four of the five receivers can also accept an optional Bluetooth adapter, and work with Air Jam, a free Pioneer app that lets iPhone/iPad and iPod users creative collaborative playlists on their devices and stream them to the receiver via Bluetooth. Other network entertainment features include DLNA 1.5 support, which allows high-resolution (up to 192kHz/24-bit) digital audio files to be streamed over a home network from from DLNA-compliant devices; and vTuner Internet radio capability. All five receivers work with Pioneer's second-generation iPhone/iPad app, iControl AV2.
