Make all your sound and vision streaming sources the best they can be, with the powerful Pioneer VSX933.

More power for even greater immersion

With power now standing at a mighty 135 watts per channel, the Pioneer VSX933 is more punchy-sounding than ever. 7.2 surround sound immerses you, giving you cinema sound surround that no soundbar can compete with.

Dolby Atmos and DTS:X plus DTS Neural:X
Dolby Atmos uses ceiling or upwards firing speakers to produce a multi-dimensional, immersive sound that's a match for the finest cinemas. DTS:X literally pushes the boundaries of what you can expect from home cinema. It renders images in three dimensions that conventional processing can't match. DTS Neural:X upmixer supports Dolby formats, giving you DTS surround whatever the format.

Reflex Optimiser makes the most of Atmos
Designed to get the most from Dolby Atmos speakers, Reflex Optimiser uses Phase Control technology for improved focus. By aligning the frequencies from ceiling or upward-firing speakers, the sound is more ‘together’, making it sound more natural and less disjointed.

More streaming options than ever – including Amazon Prime Music and Chromecast
Already one of the best-equipped AV receivers for streaming music, the Pioneer VSX-933 features more streaming options than ever. Integrated Amazon Prime Music (via firmware update) joins Spotify (Premium account required for full features), TIDAL and Deezer to make this the best choice of AV receiver for music streaming. There’s also Google Chromecast built-in. This lets you stream music, podcasts and audio apps, including Google Play, at the touch of a button.

DTS Play-Fi for effortless streaming and multi-room
DTS Play-Fi is a premium, wireless control system that brings everything under one 'roof'. Download the free app and you'll not only have access to Internet radio but also popular music apps such as Spotify, Tidal, Deezer and Napster. As well as bringing all your streaming sources together, Play-Fi offers the potential for full multi-room music. Simply add other Play-Fi compatible sources and you'll quickly be able to build up a comprehensive music system around your home - all under the control of a single app.

FlareConnect for any music source in any room
Streaming music between rooms from any source, including records and CDs, is easy with FlareConnect. When used with compatible FlareConnect speakers, you can listen to your treasured vinyls and CDs in any room. Music selection, speaker grouping and playback control is all built-in to the Pioneer Remote App for effortless smartphone or tablet control.

Support for Dolby Vision, HDR10 and HLG
The Pioneer VSX-933 is the perfect partner for your HDR-equipped TV and video sources. It supports HDR10, Dolby Vision, HLG and HDCP 2.2, which means you can play UHD Blu-ray discs and stream UltraHD video in the highest quality. It's also equipped with 4K upscaling, giving you the most detailed picture on your 4K TV from all sources. The HDMI sockets allow 4K pass-through, for hassle free switching and viewing without the receiver needing to be on.

Now featuring 6 HDMI sockets
With an extra two HDMI sockets over the older model, the VSX933 can now support the most complex AV systems. Games consoles, set-top TV boxes, cameras, video streamers and Blu-ray players can all be accommodated, without the need for HDMI switching units.

Wide range of legacy connections – including a turntable input
When it comes to connecting older sources, the VSX-933 has everything covered – right down to your turntable. Legacy sources such as DVD players or older games consoles connect via digital optical, coaxial component and composite inputs. As well as a turntable input there are four line level ones – ideal for a CD player, music streamer and other music sources. With USB sockets at both the front and rear, connecting a media device and playing back your digital music library is easily achieved.

Zone 2 for music in another room
Another great new feature with the Pioneer VSX-933 is Zone 2 active and passive audio outputting. Use the active outputs to power standard speakers in a second room. Alternatively, RCA phono outputs let you use your own choice of active speakers or amp/speaker combo in another room.

Raise your home entertainment game, with the all-powerful Pioneer VSX933.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased My first AV receiver and very pleased with my purchase. Staff in the shop couldn't have been more helpful. Took a little getting used to all the features and setup but the staff where on hand to answer all my questions and now it's all set up perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality sound After buying a new Panasonic TV, I thought I would update my old pioneer 5.1 home cinema which had been faultless in 20 years. I only had one make in mind and that was another Pioneer. I wanted Dolby Atmos and DTS X so after a lot pondering I decided on the vsx933. I have a 5.1.2 setup with rear height speakers for my atmos sound using the DTS Neutral X channel when watching movies. It makes viewing so much more immersive and involving. I'm still finding my feet regarding all the settings but I am more than pleased with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pioneer VSX-933 av amp After my onkyo amp decided to stop working after 6 years I was torn between a new onkyo or pioneer amp, both priced the same, after speaking to members of staff at the milton Keynes branch I decided to go with the pioneer amp, great choice amazing sound, easy set up and look forward to many hours of great surround sound.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Sound Bought this AV amp to replace a 7 year old Onkyo. I would say that the customer service was very good, and they recommended this as a replacement. Uncomplicated and easy to set up. I would say the sound is good, (slight tweaks needed to the auto set up from the microphone), but it is a different sound from the Onkyo. Overall, can't fault it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pioneer vsx-933 I recently purchased the pioneer vsx-933 av receiver. I'm pleased to have purchased this item. It was quite easily to set up and its quite a step up from my previous receiver. The delivery was quick and prompt. The only negative thing i can say is that the picture keeps flickering when I'm watching a 4k and blu rays. I have the latest software and I have both hdmi cables with 18gps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sounds Great and Setting up soooooo easy! After blowing up my Sony Av amp I desperately needed a new one but on a budget I thought I was going to get a bit of a loser. But no at 350 pounds this Amp does not disappoint! It looks great, sounds great and the Atmos sound is making my speakers work properly. Setting the amp up was easy too with the microphone and easy to tweak to get the sound just right. Very very happy with this purchase (I bought a winner)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really impressed This is my third amp and am loving this pioneer. Wanted to upgrade to atmos sound so looked at the reviews and placed my order. My previous amps were a complete nightmare to set up, so with this I went for an easy to set up option. Glad I did. Ten mins and amp running perfectly. Set up menu is basically a tick box exercise and speaker set up through the mic is easy. Sounds fantastic, deep bass and all audio is noticeably more precise and cleaner Picture great. For the money its unbeatable in my opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First Class Receiver From Pioneer Bought this to replace a 4 year old Denon that I've never really been happy with. Put together as a 7.1 setup and I'm very pleased with the result. Crisp clear sound from my speakers and sub and great surround sound from Pioneer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to set up, great sound Bought this AV amp a few weeks ago from Richer Sounds, Cardiff. Great customer service from the sales team there as always, so glad I took their recommendation as the sound is so much better than the 5 year old Onkyo it replaced. Uncomplicated and easy to set up. Highly recommended at a good price and with the added advantage of paying just 10% of the purchase price for a 6 year extended warranty. What’s not to like!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pioneer VSX933 I bought this AV receiver as a budget update to my old Arcam AVR350 which doesn’t support 4K at all. If I reflect on the fact that the Arcam cost £1500 (all those years ago) and the Pioneer replacement was just £349 in the sale then it is truly a great value piece of budget equipmentt. The sound quality cannot match the depth and subtlety of the Arcam, but it would be unrealistic to expect it do so with such a huge price differential. It was a piece of cake to set up with my Tannoy surround sound system and 55” LG 4K TV. Great value for money and would have scored 5 stars without the “unfair” comparison to the Arcam kit I have enjoyed for 10+ years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Sound I originally bought a Denon AVRX2500H and was not Impressed so returned it and bought the Pioneer VSX933 which was easier to setup and sounds better than the Denon (my opinion), Menus are a lot easier than my old pioneer, downside are the speaker connections which won't take 4mm banana plugs so you have to put the bare wires into the screw connectors which is a bit fiddly, also there is no provision for front wide setting only height. I've only had it for a week so still finding my way around but would recommend the Pioneer VSX933.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent sound, easy setup but slight niggles I've had the receiver for about a month now and am very pleased with the sound quality. The surround sound works excellently with movies, TV and games consoles. Playing Black Ops 4 with 7.1 surround is amazing as you can tell with great accuracy where gunshots are coming from. The receiver comes with a microphone to auto-setup speaker levels etc. The on screen instructions are very easy to follow and the results are excellent so far as I can tell. A hardline audiophile might not be too impressed but this small "a" audiophile is very happy indeed. Visually I am running three 4k sources through it (Xbox One X, PS4-Pro and an HTPC). There is no loss of visual quality or any lag that I can discern. HDR still works perfectly as well. Three minor niggles though. The receiver doesn't power on automatically when I turn my telly on but it does switch off when I turn the TV off. My previous Denon receiver did both and I'm certain the receiver is setup correctly. Secondly every time I turned on my Xbox One the PS4 immediately woke up and took over the TV. To counter this I had to switch off HDMI link up with the PS4. A minor thing I grant you but yet again this didn't happen with the previous Denon AVR-2100W that I had. Finally I connected my Audio Technica LP60 turntable to the built in phono input. This resulted in a horrendous buzz when using the turntable. To counter this I switched the turntable to "line" mode and connected it to one of the non-phono inputs. This eliminated the buzzing. However, the LP60 is a simple turntable that lacks a grounding cable so this may well have caused the issue rather than a bad phono input on the receiver. These minor niggles are what cost the receiver a star. But for the price you get stunning sound quality and 4k passthrough for HDR etc.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Build Almost Perfect! Really impressed with the main box. Solid build from someone whose had Pioneer A.V equipment for many years. This was a replacement for a pioneer amp which I've had for 15 years! Great modern features. It is, somewhat let down, by the included remote. It is very flimsy and plastic, compared with my original, solid metal remote!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome av receiver Got this av receiver to replace an older Pioneer vsx924. The picture upscalling gives a much crisper image. Sound quality also improved from previous model. Its packed full of useful features including built in wifi enabling wireless control of the unit using phone app. Size wise is slightly larger than previous model but not by much. All in all very happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really good sound and great features I never had a pioneer home cinema amplifier before i used to have a denon1713 and was really happy with the sound but i decided it's time to upgrade to a newer model mainly for the wireless network as my old amp needed a ethernet cable. Im so glad i did my pioneer sounds fantastic with music and just as good with movies plus i can use Bluetooth and WiFi so much easier than having a wired connection. For the money it's a bargain i highly recommend this home cinema amplifier

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Amp at a Good Price Paired with some harman kardon and monitor audio centre they do the job for my living room. I usually go with onkyo but thought I'd give this a go. ARC is not working at the moment but it maybe my HDMI cable. I would go for this price wise however onkyo if I could stretch out a little more
