The Pioneer Elite VSX-31 is a high end audio and video receiver for home theaters. It has some improvements over the Pioneer Elite VSX-30, including 6 HDMI inputs (one in the front) and 2 Digital Coaxial connections. Another new feature is a 2 Zone Multi-zone & Source mode, offering analog audio and video out for a second zone series of presets. The 7.1 surround sound is supported by the HDMI v1.4a standard, which is built to support 3D audio and video. The receiver sends audio to the main 7 channels with 80 watts using Direct Energy Amplification for a signal true to the original recording, and THX Select2 Plus processing is used for theater quality sound. Video output can be sent via HDMI connection in full 1080p high definition, and lower resolution video can be automatically scaled up with the integrated Anchor Bay Video Scaler. This unit is SIRIUS Satellite radio ready, and can connect to Internet radio stations with the use of an Ethernet connection.
