Winner of the Pixels Trivia Sweepstakes



With 3690 valid entries in the Pixels Trivia Sweepstakes, the chances of winning by random drawing were—well, 1 in 3690. But someone had to win, and that someone is Martin Wales, who will be receiving a Pioneer Elite SC-95 AV receiver with Dolby Atmos capabilities as well as a copy of Pixels on Blu-ray, one of the latest titles to be released with an Atmos soundtrack.

"I originally joined AVS Forum back in 2008 when my interest in audio began," Martin says. "Being a student, I had to spend my money wisely, and AVS was a good resource for reviews and to learn about the technical side of audio that I didn't even know existed. In 2011, my son was born, and living in a small apartment meant that the audio hobby had to be put on hold. I still checked in regularly to read what was new and when buying a TV or putting together a home-theater PC and Android media box. When we finally moved to a house, I was able to hook up a subwoofer again and turn up the volume.

"This Pioneer Elite receiver gives me a running start at updating my setup. It will replace my Pioneer VSX-817, which has served me well but is quite outdated with no HDMI. I'm super excited to play with this amazing piece of technology and discover what the Atmos format has to offer and how it is going to change my experience. My friends are already asking when they can come over to hear the new receiver!"

It won't be long now, Martin; your prizes are on their way. Congratulations on being the winner of the AVS/Dolby/Pioneer Pixels trivia sweepstakes! You're sure to enjoy your new AV receiver and this clever combination of live action and digital animation on Blu-ray for years to come.

That's Awesome Martin!

I remember being about your son's age listening to my dads AR3 speakers driven with his Dyna Stereo 70 amp, yes I do remember it. It was a great introduction to high quality audio reproduction, I'm glad your son is getting the same chance!

Cheers,

Don't laugh. My 13 year old receiver don't have any either.

Maybe members can chip in and buy me a new one.
