Combining all the features you need plus Pioneer's legendary quality, the VSX329 is a great way to get into surround sound.


With 100 watts per channel (at 6 ohm load) the VSX329K gives ample power for all but the largest rooms. Using a Texas Instruments Aureus Digital Signal Processor at its heart, the VSX-329 offers powerful processing and includes both Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD high resolution audio decoders. Pioneer has also fitted the VSX-329K with their Front Stage Surround Advance system. This allows you to place all your speakers by the TV and let the electronics take care of phasing the speakers for a virtual surround sound experience. Working much like a higher quality soundbar, this system is ideal for when you can't run speakers to the rear of the room.


With a 4 in/1 out HDMI interface supporting 3D, ARC and 4K pass-though, the VSX329K is fully equipped for use with the latest TVs. With 4K TVs making a strong appearance this year, by equipping this Pioneer AV receiver with 4K pass-through sockets, Pioneer have ensured the VSX329 is equipped for the future. Also standard is ARC. ARC (Audio Return Channel) cuts down on the cabling required as a single HDMI connection between your TV and AV receiver carries both the video image to the TV and the TV's audio back to the receiver. Also standard is a handy front-mounted USB socket. Compatible with all the Apple iPhones from 3G to 5S and most iPods, this neat little socket lets you seamlessly play your stored music library and streaming music stations. Furthermore, control, device charging and on-screen album art display are all supported. In addition to the HDMI and USB sockets, you'll also find both optical and coaxial digital inputs and a range of audio and composite video connections. Finally, there's a headphone socket that comes with its own "phones surround sound" effect designed to give a cinema feel when wearing headphones.


Quite often, different types of speakers are used within a surround sound set-up. Different speakers have slightly differing phases to one another, causing a slightly incoherent sound. Phase control corrects the various phase delays of the different types of speakers used for a more articulate and precise sound quality. Sound Delay (LipSync) ensures the vocals you hear match the lip movements you see onscreen.

As an ideal way of getting into the joys of surround sound, the Pioneer VSX329 offers the perfect introduction.


Great price! I have the 529 version and it's brilliant! The app for it work brill too!

Got this amp together with jbl speakers from past deal. Amp is OK, good selection of inputs. No microphone to set the speakers, have to be done all manually and no OSD menu on the screen. Have to connect single rca cable to your TV, change the source to the this rca in order to see amp settings. Otherwise you're left with little screen on the amp.
Remote can be confusing cause not all buttons are active until you press receiver button while you're listening to the source, ie bluray or satellite set top box.
Good amp for first time users but Teac amp from richer sounds for £100 was much better choice (this was two years ago I think - wish it was still available!)

@ ridgers84 - The 329 I believe is a cut down version with many features missing that the 529 has.

@ bednim - which model Teac amp are you referring to?
