The sound and equipment reference – at Air Studios and your living room

The SC-LX 901 is an AV receiver that effortlessly meets even professional quality standards. Point of honour: after strict listening tests and fastidious fine-tuning, it received the “Monitor” certificate from London’s Air Studios. For object-oriented cinema sound in the maximum expansion stage, the SC-LX 901 offers fully 11 output stages for incredibly hot cinema or concert evenings while staying comfortably cool themselves thanks to the highly efficient Direct Energy HD design. The receiver is fully ultra-HD capable and already supports the future HDR and BT.2020 colour space and image dynamics extensions. With Pioneer’s own super-resolution scaling, it converts standard HD material into not only somewhat but truly convincing 4K images. The new streaming features supporting all transmission standards stand up to every comparison: Bluetooth and dual-band WiFi are integrated. With Tidal, Spotify and Deezer, the three best streaming services grant access to their music archive with millions of titles directly through the SC-LX 901 – with a corresponding subscription. The SC-LX 901 plays back high-resolution material from local media servers up to 24bit/192kHz and quad-rate DSD (11.2MHz). Tablet users rejoice as their apps find the right way to the system in any situation with Chromecast built-in and Airplay. After a free update to the brand-neutral, high-performance FireConnect multi-room standard, the music from all sources connected to the SC-LX 901 can also reach an entire network of other rooms and play perfectly synchronised throughout the house if desired.

The SC-LX901 featuring 11.2-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.
