With Ultra HD (4K/60p/4:4:4) upscaling/pass-through and HDR/BT.2020 standards ready, 4K images are ever more impressive. In addition to internet radio and various network streaming services, with Google Cast™* built-in you can use your mobile device to cast your favorite music to the SC-LX701. The multi-zone feature supports powered ZONE 2/ZONE 3 output.
Class D3 Amplifier (Direct Energy HD Amplifier)
With the Class D3 (Direct Energy High fidelity class D) Amplifier, the SC-LX701 is ready to meet the needs of the latest HD content. With our MOSFET, the Direct Power FET, this simple, high powered solution is provided to fully meet today’s AV entertainment standards.
High-Power Simultaneous Multi-Channel Drive
With Class AB amplifiers, driving all channels at full power is only possible for a short time, at around 300 W to 400 W power output. 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 more efficently.
The Direct Power FET is directly connected to the print circuit board without any additional wiring. This simple structure maximizes audio performance by reduced noise and improved switching, offering a quick-responding sound, perfect for digital content playback.
The Class D3 Amplifier has been designed with a simple structure to take a straight and short signal path, resulting in improved sound quality.
Improved Circuit Design
The SC-LX701 adopts a compact integrated IC with space merit. The directly coupled IC reduces signal loss and provides precise signal transmission.
Multi-Dimensional Excitement with Dolby Atmos
The SC-LX701 is compatible with 7.2.2ch/5.2.4ch configuration of the latest theater immersive sound platform, Dolby Atmos. The SC-LX701 can reproduce object oriented compatible movies/music in smooth, curving movements, or the realistic three-dimensional movement overhead by utilizing Dolby Atmos enabled and/or in-ceiling speakers.
DTS:X is the next-generation audio codec from DTS that leverages object-based audio to enable new immersive and interactive audio experiences. Since DTS:X can automatically adapt the audio to the existing channels and speaker system, no specific speaker layout is required. Experience an immersive soundscape with incredibly rich and life-like audio.
This receiver has Google Cast, the same technology behind Chromecast built-in, so you can use your mobile device to cast your favorite music, radio, or podcasts to your speaker. You can control the audio from anywhere in the house using Cast-enabled apps running on your personal device—iPhone, iPad, Android phone and tablet, Mac and Windows laptop, and Chromebook.
Ultra HD (4K/60p/4:4:4/24-bit) Upscaling/Pass-Through with HDCP 2.2
The feature lets you take advantage of the highest-quality video source for viewing on a 4K TV. With support for HDCP 2.2, you can enjoy premium content such as 4K videos with digital copy protection on a compatible display. What’s more, this receiver is ready for the HDR (High Dynamic Range) and BT.2020 next generation video standards.
* Supports up to 4K/60p/4:4:4/24-bit with HDCP 2.2 on HDMI IN (1/2/3) and HDMI OUT (MAIN/SUB).
MCACC Auto Room Tuning
Create the optimum acoustic environment with Pioneer’s MCACC (Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration System), developed with the expertise of professional recording studios. With the custom microphone, the system automatically compensates for differences in speaker size, level and distance, and equalizes response.
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 original content developer.
Advanced Sound Retriever
The Advanced Sound Retriever restores the output of compressed audio—such as WMA, AAC, and MP3—to the level of CD sound. The technology creates new signals to restore the minor details left out during the compression process. Advanced Sound Retriever for multi surround sound is compatible with DVD soundtracks featuring Dolby Digital or DTS.
Multi-room Audio Offers a Variety of Ways to Enjoy Music
This receiver will support FireConnect Powered by Blackfire with future firmware update. FireConnect is a stable wireless protocol that mirrors any audio source connected to the receiver—from vinyl to streaming audio—on optional FireConnect compatible speakers in other rooms.
Clean Grounding with Insulated Dual Chassis
Steel plates shield the power amplifier block to eliminate unwanted noise caused by mutual interference, while Pioneer original Insulated Dual Chassis connects the power amplifier’s chassis to the main chassis via special insulators. The pre and power amplifier blocks are electrically separated, enabling the optimal ground design for each block. With thorough clean grounding and elimination of interference between the circuits and load changes, the sound quality and performance equivalent to separate amplifiers combined within a single chassis is achieved.
