Concentrated home cinema expertise, the latest streaming technology and superb sound

Conventional wisdom says that AV receivers are no more than average stereo amplifiers – but this is not always true. While the Pioneer SC-LX 701 can easily render the most intense dynamics of modern cinema soundtracks on up to nine channels, it transforms itself into a cultivated hi-fi amp with a natural sound when it comes to music. For Pioneer’s own Direct Power HD output stage technology with its ultra-short signal paths, power and aesthetics are no contradiction. Audiophile quality also defines the SABRE32 D/A converter from ESS used for all channels. Those who want to truly put its tremendous dynamics and high linearity to the test can, in addition to multi-channel premium movie sound (Dolby Atmos, DTS:X), also access super-high-resolution studio master music files with a few taps in the control app. This is because the SC-LX 701 includes a full-fledged, opulently equipped streamer that also plays back high-resolution files from local NAS servers at 24bit/192kHz and quad-rate DSD (11.2MHz). Full CD resolution is promised by the integrated music services Tidal and Deezer along with Spotify, offering full access to over 20 million titles for their subscribers. Bluetooth, dual-band WiFi and Airplay are also available for everyday convenience and the soothing feeling of always being able to offer the right standard – complemented by Chromecast built-in and the high-performance, brand-neutral, FireConnect multi-room standard after a free update.

The SC-LX701 featuring 9.2-ch Direct Energy HD amplifier is fully-equipped for the latest multi-dimensional

surround sound formats, DTS:X™ and Dolby Atmos®, featuring the Reflex Optimizer for Dolby enabled speakers.

With Ultra HD (4K/60p/4:4:4) upscaling/passthrough and HDR/BT.2020 standards ready, images are ever more

impressive. In addition to internet radio and various network streaming services, with Chromecast built-in you

can use your mobile device to stream your favorite music to your receiver. The multizone feature supports

powered ZONE 2/ZONE 3 output.
