You want surround sound, but you don't want to run speaker wire across your living room. Pioneer has an innovative solution! The HTD-630DV system, besides including a pair of stereo speakers, a center channel, and a subwoofer, provides a wireless speaker unit for the rear channels. You get wraparound sound without having to wire a pair of surrounds!

What's more, you can flip a switch to make the wireless speaker unit play the front left and right channels — perfect for listening to music in another room. And speaking of music, you get playback for Super Audio CD (SACD) and DVD-Audio discs: both are high-resolution music formats that offer multichannel audio and breathtaking sonic clarity.

DVD movies will impress you with their bright, sharp picture, and if you've got an HD-capable TV, you can view an even better-looking, progressive-scan DVD picture. The included receiver sends 100 watts to each of the front three speakers and the subwoofer — more than enough power for thrilling surround sound! Cables are included, so setup is super-simple. (But you'll need to add a component video cable to enjoy progressive scan.)

Inputs and Outputs Notes


System Overview: The Pioneer HTD-630DV is an integrated system which includes a 5-disc carousel-type DVD/CD changer/receiver, bookshelf front and center speakers, a passive subwoofer, and a wireless surround speaker system.

DVD-Audio/SACD Compatible: This system is compatible with both DVD-Audio and SACD discs. The built-in 24-bit/192kHz DAC (digital-to-analog converter) can deliver exceptional sound quality from these high-sampling-rate discs in terms of dynamic range, low-level resolution and high-frequency detail.

Disc Compatibility: In addition to DVD-Audio and SACD, the HTD-630DV is compatible with DVD-Video, DVD-R/RW, Audio CD, Video CD, CD-R/RW, and MP3 and JPEG files on CD-R/RW discs (including Kodak Picture CD and Fujicolor CD). MP3 files must be recorded at 32, 44.1 or 48kHz in ISO 9660 Level 1 or 2, Romeo or Joliet file systems. The system can recognize MP3 and JPEG discs with up to 999 files and 499 folders. Baseline JPEG and Exif 2.1 still image files up to 8 mega-pixels are supported, with the maximum horizontal and vertical resolution of 5120 pixels.

PBC (Playback Control) Playback: PBC playback allows you to play Video CDs interactively by following the menu on the TV screen.

PureCinema Progressive Scan: When connected to a progressive scan-compatible TV or monitor using the component video outputs, you can enjoy extremely stable, flicker-free images. The unit may be set to progressive scan or interlaced in the menu.

Surround Modes: Thisunit incorporates a wide variety of surround modes to bring you maximum enjoyment from your audio and video software. The surround modes include:

  • Dolby Digital
  • Dolby Pro Logic II
    • Pro Logic
    • PL II Music
    • PL II Movie
  • DTS
  • Advanced Surround (with adjustable effect level of 10-90):
    • Adv. Music
    • Adv. Movie
    • Expanded
    • TV Surround
    • Sports
    • Game
    • Extra Power Surround
    • Virtual
    • 5-Channel Stereo
    • Headphone Surround

    Note: Advanced Surround modes are not available for sources with 88.2 or 96 kHz sampling rates.

Auto Listening Mode: The Auto listening mode is the simplest way to listen to any source as it was mastered. The output from the speakers mirrors the channels in the source material. Any previously active Dolby Pro Logic or Advanced Surround mode is cancelled when Auto listening mode is selected.

Dialog Enhancement: This feature is designed to make the dialog stand out from other background sounds in a TV or movie soundtrack. The amount of Dialog Enhancement can be selected from Max, Mid or Off. Note: Dialog Enhancement is not available for sources with 88.2 or 96 kHz sampling rates.

Quiet/Midnight Modes: The Quiet listening feature reduces excessive bass or treble in a sound source. The Midnight listening feature allows you to hear effective surround sound of movies at low volume levels. From the remote, you can cycle through Quiet, Midnight, and Off.

Virtual Surround Back Speaker: You can activate the Virtual Surround Back feature when listening in surround to simulate the effect of an added surround back speaker directly behind you.

Bass Modes: In addition to traditional bass and treble adjustments, you can select one of three bass modes:

  • Music: can be used with music to give a deeper bass sound
  • Cinema: good for action movies or movies with lots of sound effects
  • P. Bass: can be used with music sources to bring the beat of the music (or soundtrack) to the forefront

Resume/Last Memory: When you stop playback of a DVD or Video CD, "Resume" is shown in the display indicating that you can resume playback again from that point. For DVDs only, if you change discs or take the disc out of the player, the play position is stored in memory. The next time the disc is loaded, "Last Mem" appears in the display, and you can resume playback from that point. The Last Memory feature works for 5 discs.

CD Mode: Helpful when you have a mixture of DVDs and CDs in the changer, the CD mode will allow you to play only CDs, SACDs and MP3 discs, and automatically skip over any loaded DVDs and Video CDs.

Zoom: Using the Zoom feature, you can magnify a part of the screen by a factor of 2 or 4, while watching a DVD-Video, DVD-Audio, Video CD or JPEG disc

Wake-up/Sleep Timers: The HTD-630DV has a clock with a daily wake-up timer and a sleep timer. The wake-up timer allows you set the unit to play the radio or a disc at a set volume for a pre-determined amount of time. The sleep timer switches off the system after a specified time so you can fall asleep without worrying about leaving the unit on. You can set the sleep timer for 30, 60, or 90 minutes, or Auto (available only when playing a CD)--the system switches off automatically after the currently playing disc has finished.

Tuner: This unit features an AM/FM stereo tuner with a 30-station preset memory and three tuning modes: Manual, Auto (seek), and High-Speed. To improve FM reception, you can switch the FM mode from Auto to Mono. FM tuning is done in 0.1MHz steps and AM tuning is done in 9kHz or 10kHz steps.

Child Lock: This system has a child lock feature that makes the front panel buttons and controls inoperative. This is useful when you've set the wake-up timer and don't want the system switched on before it activates.


Wireless Surround: This system is equipped with the XW-HTD630 Digital Wireless Rear Speaker system for the left and right surround channels. The system includes a 2.4GHz, 4-channel transmitter, a stereo patch cord, and the speaker cabinet with a built-in wireless receiver and a 25 watts-per-channel stereo amplifier. The speaker unit has two 2-3/4" (7cm) cone speakers, covered by a non-removable gray cloth grille. There are two wireless modes (Surround and Stereo) to allow you to use the speaker for multi-channel sound with the main setup, or as a second stereo speaker system for another room. The dimensions of the wireless speaker are: W=16.5", H=6.957" (9.113" with antenna extended), D=5.4375".Note: Although the speaker is wireless (no speaker wire), it does have a 6-1/2' AC power cord to supply power to the amplifier and wireless receiver. There are no provisions for wall-mounting the wireless speaker.

Transmitter: The wireless transmitter has a channel select button on the top, allowing you to select the channel that provides the best reception. There are 4 channels at 2.414GHz, 2.432GHz, 2.450GHz, and 2.468GHz. On the wireless speaker, you can manually select the channel, or automatically set the channel to the transmitter's frequency. The transmitter connects to the receiver via a stereo patch cord. The dimensions of the transmitter are: W=6.489", H=1.417" (2.19" including the fixed antenna), D=4.117" (5.617" with RCA plugs).

Front Speakers: The 6-ohm front speakers feature a 3-15/16" cone woofer and a 2" cone tweeter in a gray vinyl-covered laminated wood acoustic suspension enclosure. They are magnetically shielded to allow placement near a TV without causing picture distortion.

Center Speaker: The 6-ohm center speaker has a single 3-7/16" full-range cone driver in a gray plastic acoustic suspension enclosure. The speaker is magnetically shielded, and features a single keyhole slot for wall mounting.

Subwoofer: The 6-ohm passive subwoofer has a single, rear-firing 6-5/16" paper cone woofer with a foam surround in a bass reflex enclosure. The 2" front-facing port enhances the bass response. The enclosure is made of laminated wood with a dark gray vinyl covering, and a plastic front panel. It is not magnetically shielded.

Inputs and Outputs Notes

Speaker Terminals: The DVD/CD receiver has color-coded spring-clip terminals for the front left and right, center, subwoofer, and surround left and right speakers. Although no passive surround speakers are supplied, you can connect other speakers to the surround left and right terminals as long as they have a nominal impedance of 6 ohms. Color-coded speaker wires are supplied for the front left and right, center and subwoofer speakers.

Wireless Output: The audio to the wireless speaker is output through a pair of stereo RCA jacks. The output to the wireless speaker can be setup in the main menu for use with the main system for multi-channel surround, or as a second stereo speaker system in another room. Note: The wireless mode must also be set on the speaker to match the mode on the receiver.

Inputs: You can connect up to 3 additional audio sources to the receiver, 2 analog and 1 digital (coaxial). The Line 1 input also has an output to use for analog recording. The levels of the Line 1 and TV (analog) inputs can be reduced by 6dB or 10dB. There are no video inputs.

Headphone Jack: The front panel includes a 3.5mm mini-jack stereo headphone output. When headphones are connected, the output to the speakers are muted. When headphones are in use, only the Stereo and Phones Surround modes are available. When the headphones are disconnected, the receiver reverts back to the previously selected surround mode.
