Benefits of Pioneer SC-LX701 9.2-Ch Class D3 Network AV Receiver:
Class D3 Amplifier (Direct Energy HD Amplifier)
The SC-LX701 features a Class D3 (Direct Energy High fidelity class D) Amplifier - this elegant feature makes the AV receiver support the latest HD content. It also features MOSFET, the Direct Power FET, a simple solution that is compatible to today’s AV entertainment standards. The Class D3 Amplifier has been designed with a simple structure to take a straight and short signal path that results in an improved quality sound.
High-Power Simultaneous Multi-Channel Drive
It is common knowledge that Class AB amplifiers can drive all channels at full power but only for a short time, that too at a power output of around 300 W to 400 W. Here’s where the Pioneer SC-LX701 is different. The SC-LX701’s Class D3 Amplifier has the ability to simultaneously drive 9-channels at 760 W power output, while managing to deliver dynamic content with efficiency.
Improved Circuit Design
With its new and improved circuit design, the SC-LX701 adopts a compact integrated IC while not taking up much space.The directly coupled IC reduces signal loss and provides precise signal transmission while the Direct Power FET is connected to the print circuit board without any additional wiring. How does this help? A simple structure like this can maximize audio performance by reduced noise and improved switching, offering a quick-responding sound that is ideal for digital content playback.
Multi-Dimensional Excitement with Dolby Atmos
An imminent feature of the SC-LX701 is its compatibility with a 7.2.2ch/5.2.4ch configuration of the latest cinema sound platform, Dolby Atmos®. You can enjoy as the AV receiver reproduces object oriented sound in smooth, curving movements, or realistic 3D movement overhead by the top speakers.
Multi-room Audio Offers a Variety of Ways to Enjoy Music
Pioneer’s Phase Control technology is capable of eliminating phase lag. How does this help? It can improve (quite significantly) multi-channel sound without any extra operation. Furthermore, The Full Band Phase Control technology focuses on the group delay in the speaker network filter. It adjusts the phase of each unit as well as the group delay for each speaker. This results in multi-range speakers gaining the sound capability of full-range speakers, while simultaneously retaining the wide frequency range advantage.
In an environment where the phase of all units and all channels are precisely controlled, a user can experience remarkably clear sound location with surround sound feel. In combination with MCACC Pro, an ideal multi-channel reproduction environment can be created. This combination faithfully replicates object audio and the intention of the directors.
Full Band Phase Control
Pioneer’s Phase Control technology effectively eliminates phase lag and significantly improves the multi-channel sound without any extra operation. Furthermore, The Full Band Phase Control technology focuses on the group delay in the speaker network filter, and adjusts the phase of each unit as well as the group delay for each speaker. Multi-range speakers gain the sound coherence of full-range speakers, while retaining the wide frequency range advantage. In an environment where the phase of all units and all channels are precisely controlled, a remarkably clear sound location with a surrounding feel is achieved. In combination with MCACC Pro, the ideal multi-channel reproduction environment can be created, which faithfully replicates object audio and the intention of the directors.
MCACC Auto Room Tuning
MCACC Pro, the pinnacle of Pioneer’s auto room tuning technology, analyses the phase and group delay characteristics to precisely control phase differences between speakers. MCACC Pro corrects phase differences in all ranges and all channels, from phase difference in the original audio material to the sound emitted from the speakers.
DTS:X and Chromecast Built-in
With so many features, it is only inevitable that the SC-LX701 gets even better. DTS:X® is the next-generation audio codec from DTS that leverages object-based audio to enable new immersive and interactive audio experiences.
DTS:X has the capacity to automatically adapt the audio to existing channels and the speaker system, irrespective of a speaker layout. This means you can experience an immersive soundscape with incredibly rich and life-like audio.
The SC-LX901 features the Chromecast Built-in, this gives you the opportunity to use your smart device to cast your favorite music, radio, or podcasts to the SC-LX901. Moreover, using the cast-enabled apps, you can control the audio from anywhere in your house. So be it an iPhone, iPad, Android phone, tablet, Mac, Windows laptop, or even a Chromebook, you can experience an immersive soundscape with incredibly rich and life-like audio.
* Chromecast buillt-in will be available with firmware update.
High directivity sound reflecting off the ceiling and low directivity sound directly reaches the ears - this can result in a phase shift that often makes a user’s listening experience rather uncomfortable. But the SC-LX701 can solve this issue to recreate that amazing, immersive sound you’ve wanted all along.
The Reflex Optimizer uses the Phase Control technology and adjusts the phase shift we mentioned, by improving the localisation of the sound image by aligning the frequencies with those of the floor speakers, thereby creating the ideal reproduction environment.
Next-Generation Video Standard Ready
When the audio on the SC-LX701 is so remarkable, how can Pioneer leave video behind? The SC-LX701 supports upscaling for Dolby Vision* and HDR10 signals. Once you connect a compatible source device, you can enjoy these latest video standards on a compatible display.
But there’s more! All HDMI terminals support 4K (60p/4:4:4/24-bit), Wide Colour Gamut (BT.2020), and HDCP 2.2, so even if you upgrade to a new device, you can enjoy premium content such as 4K videos with digital copy protection.
* 6G Video, HDR, HDCP 2.2 supported on HDMI IN 1/2/3/4/5 and HDMI OUT 1/2. Dolby Vision will be available with future firmware update.
