PUREDRIVE
Fact: there are many brands of plasma
displays, but only a few actual manufacturers.
Among this very short list, Pioneer is a
true innovator at the forefront of plasma
development. Our latest breakthrough is
PureDrive™, a Pioneer exclusive that
pushes the limits of plasma display
performance. PureDrive keeps video
signals entirely in a digital domain rather
than convert them back and forth between
analog and digital, as is typical. This
lossless, all-digital process allows far
greater control of the signal and enables it
to maintain all of its original depth.
PRO-910HD
4 3" P u re V i s i o n P l a s m a Te l ev i s i o n
To bring the completely digital PureDrive
platform to market, Pioneer developed its
own custom digital chipsets — actually six
new ICs, four within the media receiver of
the Elite PRO-1110HD and PRO-910HD, and
two within the panels themselves. The result
is a technological foundation of excellence
that will carry forward into the future.
Here are the features made possible by the
development of PureDrive, and how each
contributes to improved picture quality. In
a crowded field of plasma displays — some
of them excellent — this is what it takes to
be the very best.

I/P CONVERSION
Even the most common plasma displays
contain an I/P converter, a chip that
turns interlaced images into progressive
images. That’s the easy part; inexpensive,
low-performance I/P conversion chips are
available to all manufacturers. But performing that conversion with total precision and
without visible distortion cannot be done
with an inexpensive chip. Go into a store,
begin watching a plasma display and look
for a moving image that contains a straight
edge such as a pillar or fence. As motion
continues, look for a jagged effect along the
edges. That imperfection can be eliminated,
and powered by PureDrive, the Elite
PRO-1110HD and PRO-910HD plasma TVs are
up to the task. Each contains a custom IC
that performs high-grade I/P conversion, so
those straight edges will look straight and
clean, like they’re supposed to. Better technology, better performance: it’s another reason
why Pioneer plasmas are the best in their class.

PULLDOWN
Film doesn’t translate to a standard that a
TV can process without some alterations.
Here’s why: all movies are shot on film at 24
frames per second (fps), but televisions
display images using the long-standing NTSC
standard of 30 frames per second (or more
precisely, 60 interlaced fields per second, or
60Hz). In order to display a movie, 6 fps must
be added to the film’s original 24 fps, to equal
30. This is done by examining each frame of
film and creating three “partial” frames from
the first frame of film, two partial frames
from the second, then three again, and so on.
This conversion process is called 3-2 (or
sometimes 2-3) frame pulldown.
3-2 pulldown greatly improves NTSC
reproduction of film-based material, but it’s
not the ideal solution. It requires a processor
to take those 24 fps into a buffer, interpolate
how to compose the 6 frames to be added,
and re-send the “new” 30 frames. This is
exceptionally difficult to do and often results
in uneven motion, especially during fast-moving
action in a film.
As part of its creation of PureDrive, Pioneer
solved this issue by developing a custom,
industry-exclusive IC that creates 3 full
copies of each frame x 24 frames per
second, for 72 progressive fps (72Hz). This is
3-3 pulldown, which synchronizes perfectly
with the frame rate of film so there’s no
need to make interpolations. It’s actually a
far less complicated process that doesn’t
force the processors into guesswork. Now,
film-based material on DVD, videotape, and
even regular television will match the
smooth, natural reproduction you’d see in
a theater. Advanced PureCinema 3-3 pulldown
— unequalled by other plasma display brands —
will become the new industry standard.

EMISSION II (ACE II)
Some of the most gripping movie moments
come in low-light scenes. Most plasma panels
don’t properly reproduce all the detail in
these dark scenes, leaving you thinking,
“what was that?” and playing it over again.
But the Elite PRO-1110HD and PRO-910HD
overcome this: Advanced Continuous
Emission II uses 10-bit processing to produce
1,024 gradation steps for each red, green,
and blue cell, creating a palette of over 1.07
billion colors. This industry-leading technology
gives you a wider range of hues and far
more accurate reproduction — up to 16 times
more accurate than competitors’ panels.
Pure Color Filter
Advanced PureCinema
P U R E C O L O R F I LT E R I I
The clear front of an Elite PureVision
plasma display is actually a precisely
machined, optical-grade glass panel.
Besides offering high-impact protection,
this glass panel acts as a color filter that
increases the spectrum of light emitted by
the plasma. With our Pure Color Filter II —
an Elite exclusive — you’ll see a fuller range
of colors with a higher level of color
accuracy than ever before. It also helps
to increase contrast by limiting ambient
light reflection, so it’s ideally suited
to your everyday viewing conditions. Our
high-performance glass panels actually
out-perform CRTs in color reproduction.

NTSC (analog) video images are comprised
of two signals, luminance (brightness information, expressed as “Y”) and chrominance
(color information, expressed as “C”). When
analog video is played back, the Y and C
signals must be kept separate or they’ll
interfere with one another. The result is
video noise in the form of the dreaded “dot
crawl” — distracting, visible dots moving
along the edges of images. To combat
this, the Elite plasma displays include a
PureDrive-powered processor that features
10-Bit 3D Y/C Separation, effectively keeping
the Y and C signals separate. This feature
enables a significant improvement to the
integrity of the images.
Many plasma displays allow the user to
select a screen mode best suited to the
material being viewed — for example, when
watching a regular 4:3 TV show on a 16:9
widescreen monitor, the image can be
stretched to fill the entire screen. But in
nearly all plasma displays, that stretching
process causes problems such as blocky,
fuzzy, or over-stretched images. The Elite
PRO-1110HD and PRO-910HD have an industryexclusive Natural Re-Size function that
re-shapes the picture and allows it to maintain
a natural appearance, without adding the
artifacts that deteriorate picture quality.
Another technology that the Elite PRO-1110HD
and PRO-910HD use to deliver such a stunningly sharp picture is Natural Enhancer, an
industry first. On any source, analog or digital,
PureDrive-powered Natural Enhancer cleans
up those wavy Moire (“moray”) patterns
and enhances the contrast at the edges of
images —rendering a clean, detailed picture.

REDUCTION
So, you’re watching a movie and an actress
with jet-black hair is wearing a bright white
shirt — a high-contrast situation that gives
nearly all plasma displays trouble. Usually, if
her hair color is a true black, her shirt will
appear as a slightly dull off-white. Or, her
shirt will be pure white but her hair isn’t a
true black. And, of course, it doesn’t help to
adjust your brightness because either the
hair or the shirt will lose its true value. Enter
Dynamic Range Expander (D.R.E.). With
enormous processing power, D.R.E. manages
to raise the values of both lights and darks,
noticeably improving the contrast ratio and
creating a more vivid presentation.
Digital video and MPEG video both use
compression that can create unwanted
noise. “Digital noise” often appears as a
checkerboard pattern on solid images like
the sky or skin. “MPEG noise”, also known as
“mosquito noise”, appears as a fuzziness
around the edge of an image. The Elite
PRO-1110HD and PRO-910HD are designed to
greatly reduce both types of noise, for a
higher level of realism.

Run-of-the-mill plasma displays have a
hard time accurately rendering a colored
image laying over another colored image —
for example a man in a dark blue jacket
standing against a red wall. The usual
result is a dithered pattern and an unwanted
combination of colors where the two
images intersect. Digital Color Transient
Improvement (C.T.I.), a Pioneer PureDrive
development, smoothes out edges of color
images so that they’re more distinct, and
colors are reproduced more accurately.
D I G I TA L C H R O M A D EC O D E R
Color noise is another form of analog
video interference — noticeable speckled
imperfections seen within solid colors on
your screen. The Elite PRO-1110HD and
PRO-910HD feature a 10-bit Digital Chroma
Decoder to reduce noise and provide better
frequency response, for pure, clean colors.
COLOR MANAGEMENT
Exclusive to the Elite PRO-1110HD and
PRO-910HD, Color Management enables
greater control of colors, selectively boosting
or scaling back values to match the actual
image without affecting other colors on the
screen. As you can imagine, this takes a lot
of processing power, but it results in far
more accurate reproduction. Two examples:
Color Management will enhance a flowering
tree without distorting the blue sky behind
it; and facial skin tones will be reproduced
more accurately without discoloring the
subject’s clothing.
computer. The high-definition native resolution of our 50" models is 1280 x 768, and for
43" models it’s 1024 x 768, so charts,
graphs, the Web, and full-motion DVDs will
all look clean and crisp. And of course you
can display more than one application
simultaneously, using either Picture-inPicture or 50/50 split screen.*

FROM NTSC TO HIGH
DEFINITION
With all Elite PureVision plasma displays,
you’ll be able to watch NTSC (analog)
broadcasts, plus three types of ATSC digital
broadcasts: Standard-, Enhanced-, and HighDefinition. Because the Elite plasma panels
feature true high-definition native resolution,
everything you watch will be maximized
for the highest quality, whether it’s
high-definition or NTSC. In fact, all Elite
panels automatically up-convert video from
any source — including regular TV — to a 768
progressive display.
Keep in mind: when a manufacturer says its
plasma panel is “high-definition compatible”,
this does not mean it has a high-definition
6 7
native resolution. It will display an HD
broadcast, so you’ll see an image, but
picture quality will be reduced due to the
panel’s lower performance capabilities.

MEDIA RECEIVER AND
SPEAKERS
The Elite PRO-1110HD and PRO-910HD are
plasma televisions: in addition to the
plasma panel itself these systems include a
media receiver, stereo speakers, and a
color-matched swivel stand.
Media Receiver: This outboard component
delivers both terrestrial broadcast ATSC
(digital) and NTSC (analog) programming,
with connections for satellite, cable, and a
computer. It offers connectivity for a range
of video and audio components, including
the new HDMI, or High Definition
Multimedia Interface, discussed on page 8.
Speaker System: Contains newly developed
3-way speakers with soft-dome tweeter. The
two speakers are side-mounted, either flush
or recessed. The system features SRS
WOW®, further enhancing your list of
options to include 3D sound and better
bass reproduction.
Stand: New, stylish tabletop stand with
matching black finish. It swivels 20 degrees
for optimal viewing convenience.

H D M I I N T E R FA C E
All Elite PureVision plasma displays
feature a new type of all-digital input called
a High Definition Multimedia Interface, or
HDMI. This high-bandwidth consumer
interface allows huge amounts of very high
quality data — such as uncompressed
HDTV signals — to be input at high rates of
speed, up to 5 Gbps. This leaves a lot of
spare capacity for future applications; for
example, a current uncompressed HD
movie “only” requires 2.2 Gbps. Another
big advantage of HDMI: it doesn’t perform
unnecessary A/D and D/A conversions, so
the signal remains in a pure, digital state.
This lossless process delivers a higher
image quality level.
HDMI offers plug and play capability and
accommodates all of the current ATSC
digital television formats, plus it supports
up to eight channels of audio. And despite
HDMI’s huge bandwidth power and the
ability to accommodate both audio and
video, the plug itself is substantially smaller
than the plug for DVI, the computer industry’s
video-only transmission medium. So, if the
shortest distance from your digital cable
box to your plasma display happens to be
straight through a wall…small size can be a
big advantage.
ISF MODE
To further customize your viewing
experience, the Elite-exclusive ISF Mode
enables your PTV to be optimized for the
specific room in which you’ve placed it. As
an optional service available through your
Elite dealer, an ISF professional can calibrate
contrast, tint, and other parameters to best
fit your exact environment, both for day and
night viewing. Once these calibrations are
made, ISF becomes a preset mode that lets
you make fine adjustments to color and
image values.

Thinking of placing your Elite PureVision
plasma panel in a well-lit room? Not a
problem: Pioneer places a patented black
coating between each row of plasma cells,
absorbing the light hitting the panel. This
significantly reduces reflections coming
back to your viewing position and nearly
doubles the effective contrast. You’ll see
blacker blacks and a more detailed picture,
without having to pull the curtains or turn
off the lights.

Pioneer’s Reference Theater Mode (RTM)
goes to great lengths to make the picture
on your screen look like it does on the big
screen. In RTM Mode, the color temperature
is set to the ISF beginning point: 6,500
degrees Kelvin. This enables the PTV to
reproduce film images with the most perfect
white balance. RTM then automatically
initiates the Scan Velocity Mode, while
switching off the Sharpness circuitry. It sets
the new Adequate Wave Form Response
Filter for the movie setting, enabling the PTV
to reproduce films with natural outlines, free
of artifacts and “ringing.” RTM also switches
off the Flesh Tone circuit, to ensure accurate
color reproduction. Now: enjoy the movie.

D C D I ™ BY FA R O U D J A
When material originally shot on video (as
opposed to film) is up-converted from standard
definition (480i) to enhanced definition
quality (480p), the process calls for some
new video information to be created. Overall,
this “interpolation” greatly improves picture
quality, but during fast-paced material such
as pro football and hockey it often causes
the problem of unwanted jagged edges
(jaggies) along diagonal lines. The DVR-57H
utilizes a technique called Directional
Correlation De-interlacing, or DCDi™, a video
mode algorithm that monitors edge transitions and fills in any information gaps that
cause the jaggies. With DCDi™, edges are
smoother and more natural, and the overall
picture quality is improved.

Compared to its analog ancestor the VCR,
a DVD recorder is faster, easier to use,
and delivers vastly superior sound and
picture quality.
A 120GB HARD DRIVE
The DVR-57H includes a king-sized 120-GB
hard drive that allows you to record material
— off the air, cable, satellite, transfer your
home movies, you name it — for short-term
storage and viewing. You can then decide
what to do with the material: keep it for
repeat viewing, delete it, or record it onto
DVD-R for permanent storage. One-of-akind shows and home movies are prime
examples of content you’d want to permanently archive, using a DVD-R so they
cannot accidentally be erased. DVD-RW can
be used for sharing content with friends
and for temporary storage (material recorded
on a DVD-RW can be written over).
How much material will fit on a 120-GB hard
drive and on a DVD? It depends upon the
recording quality you select. Here are the
recording capacities for each by quality
level:

Video Quality
DVD recorders provide far higher video
quality vs. videotape, both in recording and
playback. The detail and color accuracy of
DVD is a clearly visible advantage over tape.
Audio Quality
DVDs provide digital audio for playback and
recording, vs. analog audio on videotapes.
For playback, most DVD movies are
encoded with 5.1-channel surround sound
information such as Dolby Digital or DTS,
which greatly enhances the entertainment
experience. Plus, DVD recorders record in
Dolby Digital 2-channel audio.
Disc Durability
Videotapes, regardless of format, will deteriorate with time. Temperature extremes and
overly moist or dry conditions will adversely
affect tape. Also, because the tape must run
across a machine’s tape heads for playback
and recording, repeated use will eventually
weaken a tape. DVD discs are far more
resistant to moisture and temperature, so
the discs will last far longer than tape and
not lose quality. This is especially important
for one-of-a-kind videos that you’ll want to
save for future generations.
Speed
Unlike videotape, DVDs do not have to be
recorded in real time, and record speeds can
in fact reach up to 18x, saving you hours.
Also, with DVD-RW discs the machine will
search for empty recording space on the
disc, vs. having to manually hunt for it on
a videotape. Once recorded, DVDs enable
you to jump to a section rather than using
videotape’s painfully slow “<<” and “>>”.

Recording material from the hard drive to
DVD goes very quickly. The DVR-57H
features more than 18x record speed, so
you’ll be able to dub a 2-hour program to
DVD in basic EP quality mode in less than 7
minutes. The material remains in a digital
state throughout, so there’s no loss of
picture quality. And for even more flexibility,
you can record content to the hard drive
while dubbing different content from the
hard drive to a DVD. DVD recordings are
made in Video Mode, so your newly recorded
discs will play in nearly all DVD players,
including of course your DVR-57H.

VSX-59TXi
The DVR-57H includes a sophisticated noise
reduction circuit which can achieve an
amazing 6-10dB of noise reduction, without
introducing artifacts or decreasing sharpness. You’ll experience a much cleaner
picture that is virtually free of noise.
DV-59AVi
D I G I TA L T R A N S M I S S I O N
Connection using ILink
It’s not enough for a source component to
provide signal purity only in its internal
circuitry; it also must provide ways to output
the signal in its purest form and with high
speed, for optimal quality and convenience.
Here are three methods used by Elite DVD
recorders and players to achieve this goal.
HDMI
The DV-59AVi features a new type of alldigital output called a High Definition
Multimedia Interface, or HDMI. This highbandwidth interface allows huge amounts of
very high quality data — both video and audio
— to be output at high rates of speed, up to 5
Gbps. This leaves a lot of spare capacity for
future applications. Another advantage of
HDMI: it doesn’t perform unnecessary D/A
and A/D conversions, so the signal remains
in a pure, digital state. This lossless process
ensures the highest quality level.
HDMI offers plug-and-play capability and
accommodates all of the current ATSC digital
television formats, plus it supports up to
eight channels of audio. And despite HDMI’s
huge bandwidth power and the ability to
accommodate both audio and video, the
plug itself is substantially smaller than that
of the older and more limited DVI, which
handles only video. HDMI is compatible with
Elite plasma displays and projection TVs
(latest models) with HDMI inputs. And it’s
backward compatible with the DVI inputs on
Pioneer rear-projection TVs (an HDMI-to-DVI
cable is required and audio is not transferred out the DVI cable). (DV-59AVi)
I.LINK
Today’s sophisticated multi-channel recordings deliver a level of sound quality unlike
any that came before. In order to deliver
these new digital signals, new methods of
transmission were developed. I.LINK
connectivity, a.k.a. IEEE1394, allows you to
simplify your system and expand its
performance at the same time. It’s an
advanced digital interface that provides
single-wire transmission of new music formats
such as DVD-Audio and SACD. In addition,
I.LINK streamlines connection between the
source player and a similarly equipped
receiver (such as our VSX-49TXi, VSX-55TXi,
and VSX-59TXi): what used to take up to six
different connections to achieve, I.LINK
handles with one simple digital connection.
Because of its high levels of quality and
convenience, the non-proprietary I.LINK has
become the industry standard for transmitting high-resolution multi-channel recordings.
(DV-59AVi and DV-47Ai)
PIXEL CONVERSION IC
The more pixels, the better the picture. The
DV-59AVi contains a Pixel Conversion IC
that automatically increases the pixel count
from progressive 480 x 720 to an amazing
high-definition progressive 1280 x 720 or
1920 x 1080i. The signal generated by the
MPEG decoder passes through the IC where
the pixel count is increased, then is output
via HDMI to an HDMI-capable TV or monitor
(There is a variety of Elite plasma displays
and rear-projection TVs with HDMI inputs.)
This pixel conversion applies to all material
whether it’s video or film and regardless of
source (DVD, TV, cable, etc.), and the visible
result is a denser, higher-quality picture.

YOU IN CONTROL
Elite DVD players give you the power to
make adjustments to your taste, with
select models even offering three user
memories (DV-59AVi, DV-47Ai, DV-45A) to
recall your settings.
• Progressive Motion: Maximizes the
Progressive circuit for the type of
video-based DVD you’re watching: SLOW
for mostly static pictures, FAST for
fast-moving pictures.
• Component Frame Digital Noise
Reduction (DNR): Independently reduces
noise in the luminance and color signals.
• Mosquito Noise Reduction: Reduces
distortion concentrated near the edges
of moving objects. (DV-47Ai)
• Block Noise Reduction: Reduces noise
associated with the digitization process
used in DVD production. (DV-47Ai)
• 14-bit/216 MHz DAC for Video Output

• Burr Brown PCM1738EG-3 Chipsets (3) for all
Audio Processing
16 17
• Black/White Levels: You can independently adjust the black and white levels for
optimal contrast.
PureCinema Progressive Scan
PureCinema’s advanced circuitry achieves
high conversion accuracy by actually
re-creating the original frames of a film and
displaying them in a 3-2 order (called 3-2 pulldown), matching the output to television
standards. This creates natural, film-like, flicker-free images that are smooth and virtually
free of bothersome artifacts on moving
objects. (DVR-57H, DV-59AVi, DV-47Ai,
DV-45A, DV-F07, DV-C36).
Triple-Layered Construction
To protect very sensitive ICs and video
processors, Pioneer designed a triple-layered
construction underneath the DV-59AVi to
increase the isolation of the components
from vibration.
DVD-AUDIO AND SACD
DVD-Audio (DVD-A) and Super Audio CD
(SACD) represent the future of audio on disc:
high-density, high-resolution music that is
miles ahead of CD. The music is bigger, more
detailed, and more open, and you will
definitely hear the difference — especially
if played back on an Elite DVD player.

More data. A DVD-A disc can hold 4.7 GB
of data, seven times that of a regular CD.
Rather than use this huge data area to
just add more CD-quality songs, it’s being
used for…..
• Plays: DVD Audio, SACD, DVD Video, MP3, CD,
Video CD, CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-R and DVD-RW
• I.LINK (Advanced Resolution Digital Audio
Interface) Audio Outputs
Better music. This is the key. With all that
data area, music can be formatted into two
channels (stereo) at a 192kHz, 24-bit rate,
which may be the highest level of quality
you will hear in your lifetime. Or, into six
channels at a 96kHz, 24-bit rate, creating a
full-octane, 5.1 surround field that swirls
around you.
Visuals. Besides great music, some DVD-A
titles have photo slide shows, song lyrics,
artist interviews, and even music videos as
supplemental content. Video is not the
main focus for DVD-A, but these extras are
nice, especially when they focus on a
favorite artist.

Single-Layer: One layer of high-density
data is dedicated to either very highresolution stereo (two-channel) or multichannel music.
Dual-Layer: Two high-density layers,
otherwise same as above. The two layers
give you more great music.
Hybrid Discs: Two layers, but one layer is
for high-density SACD music, the other for
regular CD audio. This is the only type of
SACD disc that can be played on a regular
CD player — which can only reproduce the
CD Audio layer. Why would you want such a
disc? You can play the high-density layer in
your home player, and the CD layer in your
car or portable CD player.

A/V Receiver
With more high-resolution content becoming
available all the time, receivers must be able
to reproduce detailed information with high
precision and accuracy. With this in mind,
Pioneer created its Advanced Multi-Channel
Stereophonic Philosophy to guide the development of Elite receivers, thus ensuring
accurate transmission of information from
circuit to circuit without adding or taking
anything away.
The key principles of this philosophy are:
Highest Quality Equipment
The use of the highest quality parts and
superior design and construction ensure
the ultimate in sound quality.
Precise Sound Reproduction
Pioneer MCACC automatically calibrates
your system’s sound characteristics to
create perfect audio for your media room —
just like in the recording studio.
• 100 Watts x 7 MOSFET Amplification
Professional Expertise
AIR Studios has collaborated on this concept
to provide professional sound-tuning techniques. Additionally, THX Ultra2 certification
and the latest surround formats let the
artistic qualities of the sound shine through.
• I.LINK Advanced High Resolution Digital
Audio Interface
• Advanced MCACC – Multi-Channel
Acoustic Calibration
• SACD Direct Mode
The tangible result of Pioneer’s Advanced
Multi-Channel Stereophonic Philosophy is
exceptional fidelity both in traditional stereo
and multi-channel recordings.
Automatic Mutual Distance Adjustment
Just like musical instruments, home theater
systems need to be tuned for optimal
performance in their physical environment.
The question is: how can you fine-tune your
home theater system without an expert’s help?
The answer: Pioneer’s Multi-Channel
Acoustic Calibration System, or MCACC.
MCACC is a full realization of Pioneer’s
Advanced Multi-Channel Stereophonic
Philosophy and the world’s first fully automated acoustic calibration system. Featured
in all Elite receivers, MCACC evaluates the
acoustic characteristics of your media room
and calibrates the system’s components
accordingly, for professional-level sonic
performance. It works in any room, regardless
of shape or size.
MEASUREMENT AND
C A L I B R AT I O N
The MCACC function sends out pink noise
signals and test tones that are read by a
sensitive calibration microphone, measuring
the response from each of the multi-channel
speakers in your system. MCACC then
performs these five processes:
• Checks for the absence or presence of
connected speakers.
• Detects speaker size (large or small) and
positions in the room.
• Equalizes the differences created by the
speakers’ various room positions.
• Neutralizes the differences in sound
pressure level.
• Performs two separate equalizations for
the room and for your speakers. Once
set-up is complete, you can select one of
these two EQ settings:
*All-Channel EQ: equalizes all speakers to
neutralize ambient reflections and create a
much flatter frequency response.
In addition, the VSX-59TXi enables you to
actually view your room’s EQ curves —
before equalization — on your PC, via an
RS232c interface.
G R E AT H O M E T H E AT E R I N
YOUR HOME
The benefits of MCACC can be significant
and very audible. Here are just a few:
• A more natural sonic mix between speakers
and a much wider sound stage.
• True 3-dimensional sound field, especially
from surround speakers.
• A longer reverb that is more like that of
the original soundtrack.

Two-way Communication
I.LINK enables two-way communication
between components, so control data and
other messages can be sent back and forth.
When an Elite I.LINK receiver is connected to
an I.LINK DVD player, their communication
enables Auto-Source Switching, Auto-Play,
and other time-saving shortcuts.
I.LINK

Sharc and Motorola Chips
Today’s high-resolution multi-channel formats, such as DVD-Audio and SACD, deliver
an entirely new level of sound quality.
Because DVD-A and SACD recordings contain
far more data than regular CDs — and include
copy-protection encryption as well — a secure,
big-bandwidth transmission method was
required. As a result, the industry adopted
an already-proven digital interface that met
these requirements and harnessed its power
for digital audio. This digital interface is
called I.LINK.
Simpler and Better
I.LINK connectivity, a.k.a. IEEE1394, allows
you to simplify your system and improve its
performance at the same time. It’s an
advanced digital interface that provides
jitter-free transmission of all 2-channel,
multi-channel, and new-music formats
between similarly equipped components.
I.LINK also streamlines the connection: what
used to take up to six separate cables to
achieve, I.LINK handles with one simple wire.
VSX-59TXi
The VSX-59TXi, VSX-55TXi, and VSX-53TX
each contain a high-grade 192kHz/24-bit
D/A converter for each of the 7 channels,
ensuring that signal purity is maintained
from input to output.
Employing Pioneer’s legendary Legato
Link and Hi-Bit technologies, the Hi-Bit
Audio Scaler dramatically improves
sound quality from CDs and DVDs,
approaching DVD-Audio’s extended
frequency and wide dynamic range
(VSX-59TXi, VSX-55TXi, and VSX-53TX).
However, the VSX-59TXi processes all
sound formats at 96 kHz/24-bit resolution.

PROCESSING POWER
All Elite receivers feature powerful, high-end
audio processing for the most realistic sonic
experience possible.
The VSX-59TXi employs professional-grade
Motorola and Sharc processors that form the
digital engine of this high-octane receiver.
They provide all of its key digital decoding
and high-level processing including MCACC,
Dolby/DTS/THX surround, noise reduction,
and equalization for all 6.1 channels and all 7.1
speakers. These high-performance processors feature extremely low jitter and superb
reproduction accuracy.
Because different movies are encoded with
different surround sound technologies, a top
receiver must be able to decode all of the key
technologies with power and precision.
T H X T H E AT E R S O U N D
REPRODUCTION
THX was created to achieve maximum accuracy in the reproduction of movie sound,
right there in your media room. Currently
there are two certification levels that an
audio-video receiver may attain: THX Ultra2
and THX Select. THX Ultra2 (featured in the
VSX-59TXi) is the latest generation of THX
certification, ensuring optimum playback of
all multi-channel music and movie formats.
THX Select (VSX-55TXi and VSX-53TX) is
more suited to the size and listening
distances of the average U.S. living room,
without compromising the strict THX
standards for excellence.
DOLBY PRO LOGIC II, DOLBY
D I G I TA L 5 .1 , D O L BY D I G I TA L E X
All Elite receivers include these three
surround sound processing technologies.
Dolby Pro Logic II, an advanced version of the
original, decodes the Dolby Surround signal,
with performance approaching Dolby Digital
5.1. The new VSX-59TXi features Dolby ProLogic II, which delivers the most natural, full
range and immersive 7.1 channel surround listening experience available from any stereo or
5.1 channel playback source. For more precise
surround sound, Dolby Digital 5.1 sends discrete surround information to five speakers —
two fronts, a center, and two rears — plus a sub
(that’s the “.1”). Dolby Digital EX offers even
more dimensional detail than 5.1, additionally
decoding a back surround channel to make 6.1
discrete channels.
DTS NEO:6, DTS 5.1, AND
DTS-ES (ALL MODELS)
DTS (Digital Theater Systems) delivers
several surround sound technologies that
feature wide frequency and dynamic range,
for superior localization and intense sound
effects. DTS NEO:6 is a matrix system that
derives up to six main channels from any
two-channel source, analog or digital, with
three surround channels: left surround,
right surround, and back surround. DTS 5.1
decoding provides five discrete speaker
channels plus a subwoofer channel. To this,
DTS-ES adds an additional back surround
channel to create a true (not matrixed)
3-dimensional surround field.
DT S 9 6 /24 ( V SX- 59 T X I ,
V SX- 5 5 T X I A N D V SX- 5 3 T X )
DTS 96/24 is the first compressed surround
format technology to support high sound
resolution of 96kHz/24 bits and multichannel capabilities. The DTS 96/24 format
enables high-quality multi-channel sound
reproduction at 96kHz and 24 bits through
5.1 channels, without any degradation in the
high picture quality of the DVD-Video
format, thanks to its low compression rate of
audio signals. DVD-Video movies or music
can be enjoyed with a quality of sound
approaching that of DVD-Audio and SACD.

When playing DTS-encoded(CDs,LDs,DVDs),excessive noise will be exhibited from the analog stereo outputs. To avoid possible damage to the audio system,
the consumer should take proper pre-cautions when the analog stereo outputs of the DVD player is connected to an amplification system. To enjoy DTS
Digital Surround TM playback, an external 5.1channel DTS Digital Surround TM decoder system must be connected to the digital output (S/PDIF,AES/EBU,
or TosLink)of the DVD player.
