Pioneer Introduces New Elite Network Receivers

Posted Wed Apr 4, 2012 at 07:00 AM PDT by Dick Ward

They offer AirPlay, DLNA and 192kHz/24-Bit DACs.

The 7.1 channel VSX-42 and 7.2 channel VSX-60 aren't too far off from one another. They both pack DLNA compatibility, Pandora music streaming, and 192kHz/24-bit DACs. The difference is that the VSX-60 kicks nearly every feature up a notch.

The VSX-42 gives you wired ethernet access, six HDMI ports, auto MCACC for room calibration and 1080p upscaling thanks to an Anchor Bay video processor. The 60 is compatible with a wireless adapter sold separately, gives you an audio return channel, boasts Advanced MCACC and utilizes Marvel Qdeo to handle its video processing.

Pioneer's VSX-42 comes in at $450 while the VSX-60 will run you $650.
