Overview

A Once-in-a-Decade Breakthrough

A Pioneer product has to be special to carry the Elite name, and the latest Elite Home Theater Speakers are just that. From the brilliant mind of Andrew Jones—Pioneer’s and TAD’s Chief Speaker Engineer—these are the first cabinet speakers bearing the Elite brand in more than a decade. They are designed to take advantage of advancements in engineering, transducer technology and of course, groundbreaking Dolby Atmos sound.

Value Exceeded Only by Performance

Delivering a sound experience far exceeding their price, the Elite Home Theater Speakers have been designed as a complete system for Dolby Atmos. Together, they offer an unbeatable value-to-performance ratio for putting together a high-performance 5.1.4-channel surround sound system.

Its Concentric Driver Hits the Spot

At the heart of the Elite Home Theater Speaker System is the CST (Coherent Source Transducer), a revelation in accurate sound. This driver dramatically reduces interference between the midrange and tweeter, precisely controlling sound directivity at all frequencies and ensuring that direct and reflected sound arrive at the listening position with identical timing and timbre. It does this with a 1-inch tweeter positioned centrally at the apex of the 4-inch midrange drive unit. Unlike a coaxial driver, which positions its high-frequency driver further forward of a larger cone, the CST concentric design eliminates audible time domain errors that cannot be avoided when drivers are not aligned on the same axial or vertical plane

Special Drivers for Dolby Atmos

Of course, even the best speakers can’t create the startling realism and holographic sense of height and air of a Dolby Atmos recording or soundtrack, unless they’re engineered specifically for the task. That’s why both floorstanding and bookshelf Elite Home Theater Speakers are equipped with a vertically-firing Dolby Atmos-enabled driver. To maximize the performance capabilities of Dolby Atmos, the Elite Home Theater Speakers utilize Pioneer’s high-performance two-way CST to achieve the highest performance for the most accurate, uniform sound.

Attention to Details Makes the Difference

The Elite Home Theater Speakers include such details as Gold-plated connectors and multi-element, complex crossovers. Cabinets of floorstanding, bookshelf and center-channel speakers are designed with gently curved sides to eliminate standing waves encountered in typical square-box designs. The CST driver is mounted in its own individual enclosure, isolating it from the pressure waves in the main enclosure. The black-finished cabinet integrates perfectly with contemporary and traditional interiors, while a small footprint allows flexible placement in the room.
