Networked music enjoyment the way it was meant to be: wireless, elegant and extremely versatile
The FS-W50 encompasses a full-fledged 2.1 speaker system that fills even larger rooms with powerful, balanced sound. No connections other than power cords are required since the subwoofer and satellites are wireless. Music no longer depends on cables either: with built-in dual-band WiFi, the FS-W50 has access to the inexhaustible resources of the Tidal, Spotify and Deezer streaming services, thousands of Internet radio stations and of course your locally stored music libraries. Chromecast built-in and Bluetooth ensure a connection of the best quality from any tablet or smartphone to the boxes for your favourite songs – regardless of the operating system or app you are using at the moment. The television and any A/V players can be integrated via the ultra-HD-capable HDMI connector panel of the FS-W50.
Those who prefer watching movies with surround sound simply buy a second pair of wireless satellites – the streaming receiver of the FS-W50 is able to decode all current sound formats and automatically adapts to the available speakers. If you want to supply additional rooms with music, simply expand the FS-W50 into a multi-room system: with suitable WiFi speakers from Pioneer and other manufacturers, you can share your music in all rooms of your house via FlareConnect.
This sophisticated system has a silk-gloss aluminum top panel with ceramic-like fascia, touch-sensitive buttons, and FL display. More than a stylish centerpiece, the AV Center reduces cable clutter and simplifies on-wall TV installation.
Native support for the world’s most popular streaming and internet radio services* opens new horizons in entertainment. Use dedicated apps (where available) or Pioneer Remote App to enjoy streaming audio with room-filling sound.
Wireless speakers connect automatically the moment the AV Center detects an incoming signal, and powers down by itself once you’re done. As well as Pioneer Remote App, you can use the remote controller to navigate a simple graphic interface to select sources and change AV settings.
FlareConnect™ shares audio from network and external audio input sources between compatible components. Enjoy effortless multiroom playback of LP records, CDs, network music services, and more with supported components and speaker systems. Music selection, speaker grouping, and playback management across the home are built into the Pioneer Remote App.
HDMI® terminals support Ultra HD Blu-ray™, broadcast, and streaming video with HDCP 2.2 compliance. Other features such as 4K/60 Hz, BT.2020 color, HDR, and 4:4:4 color space exploit next-generation content.
You can stream audio from mobile, laptop, and PC over 5 GHz/2.4 GHz Wi-Fi® for a stable wireless connection. Pioneer Remote App gathers music on the device and on network-attached storage devices into an easily navigated library together with access to available streaming services. Bluetooth® wireless technology is also included for convenient transmission of app-based audio to your entertainment system.
No matter if you connect a digital or analoge source like vinyl, CD, DVD, BD, USB or Ethernet for storage media to the system, you can stream it wirelessly to any room in your house.
Optional multi-room speakers MRX-3 and MRX-5 available.
