New Pioneer Receiver Subwoofer Systems Pass 3D

Pioneer has announced three new home cinema systems today, all of which feature receivers integrated into the subwoofer and can pass 3D video signals via their HDMI ports. Ostensibly each system is identical aside from the speaker configuration, with 5.1 (HTP-610 - pictured), 3.1 (HTP-SB510) and (HTP-FS510) 2.1-channel setups available.

Each system supports Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD master Audio, and come with a microphone and a Multi Channel Acoustic Calibration (MCACC) system that ensures the speakers are configured best for your room. Also provided is a cable for connecting iPods and other Apple products, and which supports video as well as audio.

Interestingly the 3.1-channel version isn't a convention system, as it utilises a soundbar as opposed to three discrete speakers. Both it and the 2.1-channel HTP-FS510 can be expanded to 5.1-channels through additional speakers. Pricing hasn't been announced yet, but the systems will be available in December.
