The new, energy-saving ECO Mode found on all 2013 Pioneer AV receivers goes far beyond the conventional wisdom about "green" electronics, with a standby power consumption of only 0.1 watt when enabled. Our ECO Mode offers all of the convenience features of today's modern AV receivers, including Network Standby and HDMI CEC support, while reducing power consumption in both on and standby modes.
The intelligent ECO Mode analyzes your sources in real time, adjusting power consumption accordingly to meet your needs, or you can choose the power-saving settings that are right for you. You can control ECO Mode using the receiver's front panel, the included remote control, or the ECO Manager page of Pioneer's free ControlApp for your smartphone or tablet. Now you can feel better about your entertainment experience without sacrificing power or features.
On-Screen Display (Simple Overlay)
If your home theater system is hidden away in a cabinet or closet it is often difficult to know the current volume level or other status indicators of the receiver. This is where the On Screen Display feature comes into play. When turned on, On-Screen Display will overlay your receiver's basic information such as volume, input, and surround mode as you make adjustments using the remote.
A Customized Home Theater System
