New Year’s Resolution HDMI and HDCP 2.2

New for 2015 is HDCP 2.2 (High-Bandwidth Digital Copy Protection), ensuring compatibility with current and upcoming 4K UltraHD sources and televisions. With six HDMI inputs, the VSX-45 handles 4K2K Ultra HD video at 60 frames per second—four times the resolution of 1080p—relaying the highest quality picture available today, plus 4:4:4-based 4K2K 60P content, offering up to 18GBPS throughput.

Wi-Fi Within Built-In Dual-Band 2.4GHz and 5.0GHz Wi-Fi

With a dual-antenna setup on the rear panel, the VSX-45 becomes the ultimate wireless control center for your home entertainment system. Two antennas provide maximum signal strength, and supporting both bands means higher throughput and greater Wi-Fi range.

Built-In Bluetooth Casual Wireless

The VSX-45 lets you enjoy wireless Bluetooth audio from virtually any A2DP profile Bluetooth device. Untether yourself from cables and inputs, and enjoy your music wirelessly from your iPhone®, Android™, PC, laptop or almost any other A2DP profile Bluetooth-enabled source. Plus you'll enjoy enriched quality with Sound Retriever AIR technology, created specifically to enhance Bluetooth audio.

Simpler Set-Up Updated Icon-Based GUI

An updated on-screen graphical user interface can be displayed in seven languages. The GUI features a simpler menu structure—with fewer words and more icons—that is easier to set up than ever before. And because the display is icon-based, it’s also easy to follow and easy to use.

Easy Connections

A brand-new Wi-Fi setup application for iOS® and Android make it easier than ever to connect your Pioneer AV receiver to your home Wi-Fi network. It even transfers the Wi-Fi settings from your smartphone to your receiver. Meanwhile, physical cable connections are simpler, thanks to rear panel features like black-on-white graphics, with text that is larger and easier to read. Speaker connections are labeled for easy hookup.

Custom Installation

For advanced home theater control, the VSX-45 is compatible with the most popular custom control companies, Crestron® and Control4®, and offer custom installation features including full two-way RS-232C-over-IP control, with the ability to receive metadata from network and iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch.

With Internet Radio, the VSX-45 gives you a world of entertainment options. Not only can you enjoy thousands of Internet radio stations around the world with vTuner®, you can also access your favorite music from Pandora and Spotify, complete with on-screen album art and music information. Spotify Connect is a premium subscription feature that lets you play and control Spotify with your smart devices.

Easy Setup Start-up Navi App and Built-In AVNavigator

The VSX-45 features AVNavigator, a built-in system that simplifies the setup process. Unlike other systems that required an app download or the installation of a CD-ROM, AVNavigator helps you easily connect the VSX-45 to your network and launch your favorite web browser on virtually any device. The AVNavigator will walk you through the connection and setup of your new receiver. You can even explore new features of your AV Receiver using the Interactive Contents section. Just push a button on the virtual remote control and AVNavigator will activate the feature and explain what it does.

 

The Start-up Navi App is special app to help you easily set up the AV receiver via Wi-Fi with your smartphone. After opening the package, scan the QR code on the Quick Start Guide with your iPod® touch/iPhone®/iPad® or Android device connected to your home network, and download the Start-up Navi app. As you proceed with the wizard, the network set-up for your AV receiver will be completed smoothly. Then, in coordination with the AVNavigator, the app lets you do all the initial settings of the AV receiver.

     

Ready to Connect Made for iPhone 6 Certification and more

The VSX-45 lets you enjoy effortless AirPlay connectivity, offering the latest Made for iPhone certification for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. As a networked receiver, it supports Apple’s AirPlay® mirroring technology, allowing you to enjoy your favorite music from iPhone, iPod or iTunes anywhere in the house.

In addition, Pioneer was the first brand to support HTC Connect®, the only unified approach for streaming music wirelessly from select compatible HTC smartphones. There’s no need for a separate app; HTC Connect is built right into your phone’s music player and streams high quality, WAV-format files for an effortless, out-of-the-box audiophile experience.

The VSX-45 is Windows® 8.1 Certified, and also supports DLNA® 1.5 media streaming, which lets you access your favorite music from a DLNA server or computer connected to the same home network. Not only are compressed music files such as MP3, WMA, and AAC supported, but also high-resolution files, such as FLAC, WAV, AIFF, and Apple Lossless.

Ultimate Control App iControlAV5

Whether controlling volume, switching inputs or exploring all of the new features of your receiver, Pioneer’s iControlAV5 remote-control app for iOS and Android allows full control of the VSX-45. You can even play back music stored on your smartphone using our Push Player feature. Available at no charge from the App Store for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, the app is also available in Google Play (www.GooglePlay.com) for Android devices.

     

Power and Finesse Unsurpassed Audio

When it comes to sound, the Elite VSX-45 is a powerhouse that delivers the punch to rival bigger receivers. Five discrete amplifiers each produce 80 watts of power (20 Hz – 20 kHz, THD 0.08 % @ 8 ohms) for 5.2-channel surround. The VSX-45 supports formats like Dolby TrueHD® and DTS-HD® Master Audio to give your soundtracks on Blu-ray Disc™ unsurpassed audio quality.

Fine-Tuned Room Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration (MCACC)

Pioneer's Advanced Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration system is like having your own sound engineer precision-tuning your system to your living room. MCACC provides an optimized, multi-channel listening experience calibrated and customized specifically to your room by measuring every speaker's connection, and noting size and distance from the listening point, sound levels and timbre. Using measurements from every speaker’s connection, it gives you a calibrated and customized multi-channel listening experience. The receiver is also enhanced with another Pioneer exclusive, Advanced Sound Retriever, filling in areas in compressed audio files like WMA, MP3 and AAC, where minute details were left out during the compression process.

Audiophile Files High Resolution Support

The Pioneer VSX-45 delivers the high-resolution music playback audiophiles demand, with support for 192 kHz 24-bit AIFF, WAV, FLAC, and Apple Lossless up to 96kHz 24-Bit. Compressed formats, such as MP3, WMA, and AAC are also supported. Stream these files from your home network, tablet, or even the front USB. Serious listeners will appreciate DSD direct playback via network or SACD disc playback via HDMI.

Green and Easy Eco Mode

The VSX-45 features an energy-saving ECO Mode that, when enabled in Standby, achieves a power consumption of only 0.1 watt. With a host of convenience features, including Network Standby and HDMI CEC support, ECO Mode analyzes your sources in real time, adjusting power consumption accordingly to meet demand. Or you can manually select the power-saving settings that are best for you.

Pioneer Factory Refurbished

Buying a Pioneer Factory Refurbished product is a great way to get "as-new" products at a considerable savings. Every product has been thoroughly tested, repaired (if necessary), cleaned and otherwise renewed to original condition. Next it’s repackaged with accessories included. When you consider that a factory-renewed Pioneer product undergoes such close scrutiny for defects and workmanship, you might actually be buying something that is in many ways better than new. And for your piece of mind and protection, your purchase is covered by a full 1 year parts and labor warranty valid at any authorized Pioner repair center (you can look-up locations online here or call 844-679-5350)

Pioneer, like all electronics manufactures, receives products returned for various reasons. In 2011 consumers returned 17 billion dollars in electronics globally, of which less than 5% were found to be defective! Once a product has been opened it must be resold as refurbished and can’t be resold as new again. The history and reason why a product was returned is not provided to us, thus we can’t provide any additional details regarding its past. All products are processed by Pioneer certified technicians, where they are fully tested, repaired (only if necessary), and retested again to ensure the highest quality control. Each unit must pass a complete battery of test before it can be titled a "Pioneer Factory Refurbished" product.

Minor signs of wear (light surface scuffs or minor scratches) may be present. We DO NOT sell products that are cosmetically damaged (cracked displays, broken knobs, heavy scratches, or physically abused). Unfortunately, we can’t provide actual photos of each unit or pick the best one for anyone, as they are all randomly chosen from our factory sealed boxes.
