Pioneer Elite receivers
Pioneer Electronics today introduced new Pioneer Elite A/V receivers featuring both iPod and XM Satellite radio integration. The introduced today by Pioneer are designed to be the "brains" behind a great home theater, bringng "data from all types of sources and processing the data to enhance the audio and video experience." Both feature an automatic room-tuning feature that processes the sound quality so that every seat in the room feels like the "sweet spot," according to the company. The remote control on the receiver can be used to navigate through playlists, songs, artists and genres, while the information can be viewed from a scrolling 14-character display on the receiver or from a full display on the TV.
