DTS:X™ Ready
DTS:X is the next-generation
audio codec from DTS that
leverages object-based audio
to enable new immersive and
interactive audio experiences. Since DTS:X can
automatically adapt the audio to the existing
channels and speaker system, no specific speaker
layout is required. Experience an immersive
soundscape with incredibly rich and life-like audio.
* DTS:X will be available with future firmware update.
Chromecast built-in
The VSX-1131 comes with
Chromecast built-in, so
you can use your mobile
device to stream your
favorite music, radio, or
podcasts to the receiver. You can control the audio
from anywhere in the house using Chromecastenabled apps running on your personal device—
iPhone, iPad, Android phone and tablet, Mac and
Windows laptop, and Chromebook™. Discover
Chromecast-enabled apps at g.co/cast/audioapps.
Reflex Optimizer
High directivity sound
reflects off the ceiling,
while low directivity sound
directly reaches the ears.
This difference causes a
phase shift, making the
sound feel uncomfortable.
To solve this, the new technology optimizes
the performance of your up-firing elevation speakers
for your listening environment, by aligning the phase
of direct and indirect sound, matching the basic tone,
and optimizing the upward-oriented frequencies. The
result is overall seamless sound with Dolby-enabled
speakers, allowing the ideal reproduction of threedimensional surround sound.
Multi-room Audio Offers a Variety of
Ways to Enjoy Music

MCACC Auto Room Tuning
Create the optimum acoustic
environment with Pioneer’s MCACC
(Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration
System), developed with the expertise
of professional recording studios. With
the custom microphone, the system
automatically compensates for differences in
speaker size, level and distance, and equalizes
response. As an innovative solution for the
phase lag between the subwoofer and the main
channel speakers caused by the network filter,
Phase Control compensates the delayed bass to
improve sound synchronization.
FireConnect™ mirrors network audio and external
analog sources connected to the master
component—from streaming services to vinyl
records—on FireConnect™-compatible speakers
in other rooms. Music selection, speaker grouping,
and playback management across the home are
built into Pioneer Remote App for iOS and Android.
* FireConnect™ is enabled with a firmware update.
Sharing of audio from external inputs depends on the
model and is enabled with a future firmware update. VSX1131 does not support wireless transmission of signals
from external inputs. Sampling rates of 44.1 kHz and 48
kHz are supported. FireConnect is a technology based on
Blackfire provided by Blackfire Research Corp., USA.
* Chromecast built-in will be available with future firmware
