    Powerful Class D3 Amplification

    By using Class D3 amplifiers in the design of the Elite SC–95, it mananages to maintain power and efficiency in a cool–running, lightweight package. Overcoming the limitations of traditional AB amplifier designs, Pioneer’s advanced Class D3 digital circuitry delivers full power across all nine channels simultaneously, for a total of 760 watts (8 ohms, 1 kHz @ 1.0% THD). The Elite SC–95 high end AV receiver recreates the full impact and dynamic range of today’s high–resolution multi–channel audio and movie soundtracks. With a direct signal path and no EMI filters, feedback loops or current limiting, these amps can handle low–impedance speaker loads that challenge lesser receivers. Meanwhile, the amps in the Elite SC–95 are so efficient, they generate less heat and energy loss while consuming a fraction of the power and with greater reliability.

    Elite with Dolby Atmos® Revolutionizes the Surround Landscape.

    Listening to the Elite SC–95 with Dolby Atmos a single time, will alter your concept of how surround should sound in movies and music. The Elite SC–95 incorporates Dolby’s groundbreaking object based surround technology and is compatible with 7.2 4ch*, 9.2 2ch*, 7.2 2ch and 5.2 4ch configurations. Dolby Atmos works by adding height to the sonic landscape, creating a true 3D, multi–dimensional space that puts listeners inside the experience. Optimized room calibration through the built–in MCACC Pro feature, in conjunction with Atmos–enabled speakers like the best Elite Home Theater System or dedicated ceiling–mounted speakers, reproduces object–oriented sound in smooth, curving, and realistic three–dimensional movement overhead by top–firing Atmos drivers. Dolby Atmos brings new life to traditional soundtracks and music too, putting sounds into motion and delivering the full impact of the performance. *External amplifier required.

    Prepare for object–based audio with DTS:X

    Available with a no–cost firmware upgrade, the next–generation of object based surround sound format, DTS:X looks to elevate the immersion experience in your home theater. DTS:X creates an amazing three–dimensional sound field that reproduces the movement of sound in space. It automatically adapts the signal to existing channels and speakers and requires no specific speaker layout. Experience immersive, interactive 3–D realism like never before!

    Precision Room Calibration with MCACC Pro

    MCACC (Multi–Channel Acoustic Calibration) Pro takes room calibration to a new level of precision. Further enhancing the three–dimensional realism of the Elite SC–95, MCACC Pro calibrates your room sound using a sound–collecting microphone to monitor the sound environment and an equalizer to optimize and precision–tune each speaker to the room. Pioneer’s Full–Band Phase Control technology eliminates phase lag to precisely control sound locations for ideal multi–channel sound reproduction. MCACC Pro is so advanced that it includes dual independent subwoofer EQ. Tailoring left and right–channel low frequency response curves lets you achieve optimum subwoofer performance, creating powerful bass response and seamless integration with your main speaker system. With the push of a button, it’s like having an acoustical engineer fine–tuned your home theater system.

    ESS SABRE32 DACs for High–Performance Audio

    The Elite SC–95 delivers unmatched digital–to–analog signal conversion. Two SABRE32 Ultra DAC (ES9016S) units from ESS Technology—recognized as among the best in the industry—are critical to achieving purity of sound, wide dynamic range and minimal harmonic distortion that let the high–power Class D3 amps perform to their fullest.

    Precision Playback in Multiple Formats

    Supporting high–resolution digital file formats (192kHz/24–bit) in WAV, FLAC, AIFF and Apple Lossless lets audiophiles hear their favorite music as it was originally intended. Apple Lossless reconstructs exact data from compressed data, with no discernible loss in audio quality. MP3, AAC, WMA, WAV and FLAC music files can be streamed from a compatible PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone. Gapless Playback eliminates gaps between consecutive tracks intended to be played continuously, such as classical music or live recordings.

    Ultra HD Pass–Through with HDCP 2.2

    The Elite SC–95 supports transmission of 4K/60P/4:4:/24–bit video signals and High Dynamic Range (HDRƹ signals, along with the latest HDCP 2.2 copyright protection standard. 4K Ultra HD Pass–through is the recognized standard of ultra–high video resolution, boasting 3,840 x 2,160 (24 Hz/25 Hz/30 Hz) pixels or 4,096 x 2,160 (24 Hz) pixels. Every Elite AV receiver can pass through 4K video signals to any compatible display, offering the highest–quality image available — a full four times the current HD standard.

Video scaler with Super Resolution allows you to up–scale any video source to 4K Ultra HD resolution for improved picture quality and compatibility with next generation TVs, and makes Blu–ray Discs and DVDs look more detailed and cinematic than ever before.

    Multi–Zone Command from a single Source
