Pioneer is bolstering its already comprehensive AV range with three new DVD home cinema systems. The additions consist of two 5.1-channel systems, the DSC-590 and DSC-585 (pictured) and the 2.1-channel DSC-FS30.
The DSC-590 and DSC-585 differ in the type of speakers on offer, tallboys with the former and satellites with the latter with the DSC-FS30 featuring slim, height adjustable speakers in addition to the same subwoofer as shared by all three systems. Dolby Digital and DTS audio decoding is supported across the line-up and the DSC-585 and DSC-590 also include a "Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration system" which adjusts the systems' speaker outputs to suit the installed environment.
DVD up-scaling to 1080p is possible, and all three players support DivX video. A front-mounted USB port on all three systems facilitates the playback of media files with mp3, WMA and AAC audio supported. CDs can also be ripped to mp3 files on a USB storage device. All three systems can be upgraded with a Bluetooth module, making it possible to stream content from a laptop, mobile phone or media player using A2DP.
The DCS-590, DCS-585 and DCS-FS30 will be available in August, with pricing to be given nearer launch.
