Pioneer Debuts Atmos-Enabled Elite Speakers, Receivers
Pioneer Electronics Monday announced the arrival of its new Elite speakers and Elite SC series home theater receivers, both of which are equipped with Dolby's Atmos sound.
The speakers and receivers were designed by Andrew Jones.
“We’ve been at the forefront of every technology available for the home theater environment and we’re making a point to have the Dolby Atmos technology into the latest products that will captivate and transport audiences with multi-dimensional sound,” Chris Walker, director of AV product planning and marketing for the Home Electronics Division of Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc, said as part of the announcement.
“To ensure the best Dolby Atmos experience possible, Pioneer not only produced a series of ultra-high end receivers dedicated for the task, but also appointed Andrew Jones, our top speaker engineer, to design a speaker system worthy of the Elite brand and that can reproduce the sound quality that only Dolby Atmos can deliver.”
Pioneer will formally introduce the products this week at CE Week in New York, with a press conference Wednesday and demos as well.
