Dolby Atmos and UltraHD – even without a living room full of speakers
The VSX-832 with its five powerful direct energy output stages is ready to transform your living room into a Dolby Atmos cinema. Thanks to our newly developed Surround Enhancer, it does not need a rear speaker. With the use of “Dolby Atmos Enabled” speakers, the all-encompassing three-dimensional sound of the new object-based audio format can be produced using only two front and one centre speaker. Alternatively the VSX-832 naturally supports conventional 5.1 speaker sets as well. The VSX-832 with its four HDMI inputs is ready for the future UltraHD 4K video format (60p, 4:4:4, 24-bit) with all HDR dynamics extensions – so your home cinema will remain state-of-the-art for years to come. You do not even have to connect a player to listen to music. This is because the VSX-832 has its own programming with the integrated streaming services Spotify, Tidal and Deezer. You can play back locally stored music via WiFi, Bluetooth, AirPlay and, after a firmware update, using integrated Chromecast technology or PlayFi – the receiver consistently offers the right streaming technology for any file format, every smartphone, tablet or PC and all types of network storage. Whether you are enjoying film or music: the VSX-832 meets your every wish rather than dictating to you.

Supports up to 3.1.2ch Dolby Atmos. Surround Enhancer, developed by Dolby Laboratories, Inc., is a virtual speaker technology based on Head-Related Transfer Function (HRTF). With DSP, virtual surround speakers deliver the sound that usually comes from surround speakers. The 3.1.2ch is virtually expanded to 5.1.2ch to create 3D surround sound field. Even those who have difficulty installing rear speakers can also enjoy various audio formats in a wide sound field with Surround Enhancer, as well Dolby Atmos.
DTS:X is the next-generation audio codec from DTS that leverages object-based audio to enable new immersive and interactive audio experiences. Since DTS:X can automatically adapt the audio to the existing channels and speaker system, no specific speaker layout is required. Experience an immersive soundscape with incredibly rich and life-like audio.
When using Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers, high directivity sound from the unit reflects off the ceiling, while low directivity sound directly reaches the ears. The different pathways cause a phase shift, making the sound feel uncomfortable. The Reflex Optimizer which uses the Phase Control technology adjusts this shift, and improves the localisation of the sound image by aligning the frequencies with those of the floor speakers, creating the ideal reproduction environment.
Supports pass-through for HDR10 and Dolby Vision. By connecting the source device, you can enjoy these latest video standards on a compatible display. What’s more, all HDMI terminals support 4K, BT.2020, and HDCP 2.2, so you will have no problem when upgrading to new devices.
