Pioneer: Available across Europe from August, the new line-up offers a choice of either satellite, tallboy or flat panel speakers:
- DCS-590: 5.1 DVD Home Cinema System with HDMI, USB, Advanced MCACC and Tallboy Speakers

As multimedia entertainment comes in all shapes and sizes, Pioneer’s home cinema systems are designed to support the newest and most widespread formats. The DCS 590, DCS-585 and DCS-FS30 are capable of playing back entire DVD and music collections, including DivX movies.
An easily accessible front USB port enables ripping CDs directly to MP3 files on a USB memory device at up to 320 KB per second.
To make sure nothing gets lost in transmission, the new systems feature a HDMI interface, guaranteeing lossless transfer of highly detailed digital audio and video signals through a single cable. Advanced upscaling adds a new dimension to DVDs by elevating sharpness, colour and contrast to create 1080p levels of detail.
All models are equipped with a high power amplifier and internal Dolby Digital and DTS audio decoders.
The DCS-590 and DCS-585 incorporate a Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration system (MCACC), a sophisticated technology that actively ‘listens’ and creates a soundscape automatically adjusted and optimised to the acoustics of the user’s home entertainment space.
What’s more, the new home cinema systems are completely Bluetooth ready. The AS-BT100 optional Bluetooth adapter allows wireless A2DP music streaming from compatible devices, such as a mobile phone or laptop.
