"Ever popular, this unit is new for 2014 and replaces last years VSX-923. We think it;s ideal as one of the better upper end units in the competitive budget AV market. Onkyo, Sony and Denon nip at its heels but we think this unit balances music and movies perfectly."

Details

The Pioneer VSX-924 7.2 channel AV receiver is an affordable, highly versatile AV receiver. It's got all the inputs and outputs the average home could need, and comes with the sound and build quality you have come to expect from Pioneer. If you're an Apple fan, the receiver will happily connect with your device using Airplay or USB, or you can stream using Bluetooth from other devices. Streaming is also available for Spotify users, or via DLNA. There's also a handy control app available for iOS or Android devices. 

The unit is a doddle to set up - using the advanced MCACC calibration system, which examines the positions of your speakers in the room and adjusts itself automatically. You can pass through the latest 4K and 3D TV signals, and in fact, the receiver can also upscale incoming signals to 4K if you're lucky enough to have an Ultra-HD television. It's a powerful beast with 150W per channel, so you can be sure your 7.2 surround will sound fantastic.

Overall we rate the sound highly - it's well balanced, and as expected with Pioneer delivers well on stereo sound as well as on home cinema. Set up is a little fiddly to the inexperienced but once done you would barely need to trouble yourself again - day to day use is simple.

The only minus? It's not wireless on internet by standard - you'll have to add the AS-WL300 dongle to your order to get online without wires, but that's a minor niggle. However, that extra cost may push other units such as the Denon or Onkyo into your sites as they'll work out cheaper. Still, it's a very miinor issue in what is otherwise a rather impressive unit.
