Pioneer Announces VSX-1021 A/V Receiver; Supports Apple AirPlay
Consumer electronics outfit Pioneer has unveiled four new A/V receivers aimed at the digital media market, including the first of a planned series of eight devices this year that will support Apple’s AirPlay technology. The VSX-1021 AV receive functions as a 7.1 channel home theater receiver that enables users to push tunes from iTunes on their Mac or iOS device directly to the receiver via a wired or wireless home network.
“Our newest receivers make it extremely easy for consumers to connect their iPhones, iPads, and iPods, enabling them to access their music and video content as well as share them with others in one room or the home,” said Pioneer Electronics USA director of AV marketing and product planning Chris Walker, in a statement. “Pioneer receivers are made to deliver the highest level of audio and video performance consumers expect no matter of the source it comes from.”
