Pioneer Electronics has announced it will begin shipping six new Elite A/V Receivers in Canada later this month.

Key new features in the new home theatre receivers include enhanced iPhone and iPod touch control and functionality, Bluetooth connectivity for streaming audio, Internet connectivity for streaming Internet radio, Video upscaling and HDMI 1.4a for Blu-ray 3D playback.

Additional connectivity options include a front USB input for viewing photos or listening to music files and an Ethernet connection to the home network so users can connect to Internet radio stations.

Digital Home fans will also like the ability to adjust the receiver’s audio settings with by using Pioneer’s iControlAV App which is now available for free from Apple’s App Store.

The new Pioneer Elite models include the: VSX-30 ($800), VSX-31 ($1,000), VSX-32 ($1,200), VSX-33($1,600), SC-35 ($2,200), and the flagship SC-37 ($2,500)

The Elite's with that ICEPower...great sound IMO.

I usually try and stay within the 1000 to 1300 price point when it comes to receivers but I am sorely tempted to spring for a SC-35 or 37. My Onkyo has put in yeoman service and is currently playing well with my new Oppo BD player via the analog multi channels.

I am usually a practical type but these Pioneer Elite's LOOK terrific and sound great to boot. I guess I am not as immune to eye candy as I thought..lol

There are so many choices out there for HT receivers..Onkyo, Pioneer Elite, Marantz, Denon, HC, etc. When the money finally burns through my pockets I'll have to decide on a new receiver but till then, I appreciate this forums ability to keep us up on what's happening out there.

exchange rate?

I was wondering why they were so expensive till I remembered I was in Canada... The cheaper model has a 45% markup between USA and Canadian prices?! It's 800$ vs 550$.

Is the US model the same? (Can I buy one down south?)
