The Pioneer Elite VSX-23TXH is the last of four high-tech A/V receivers in Pioneer’s Elite series. As a step up from the VSX-21TXH, the VSX-23TXH features Pioneer’s exclusive PQLS-Multi technology. When used with a PQLS-Multi equipped Blu-Ray disc player, the HDMI transmissions produced are seamless and without any unwanted jitters. The unit is in fact built to produce 1080p/24fps high-definition content—as well as render Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio. And it hosts a myriad of connectivity options: iPhone/iPod (USB), SIRIUS/XM satellite radio, camcorders (HDMI), DVD players, etc. Another notable upgrade from its predecessor is the VSX-23TXH’s capability for three zones of A/V distribution—enough to cover an average family’s home.

Additional Information

The Pioneer SC-25, SC-27, VSX-21TXH, and VSX-23TXH are part of Pioneer’s Elite lineup, released in the latter portion of 2009.
