Details from Pioneer Elite

    7.2–ch Class D3 Network AV Receiver

    The Elite® SC–LX501 featuring 7.2–ch Class D3 amplifier is fully–equipped for the latest multi–dimensional surround sound formats, Dolby Atmos® and is DTS:X™* Ready , featuring the Reflex Optimizer for enabled speakers. With Ultra HD (4K/60p/4:4:4) upscaling/pass–through and HDR/BT.2020 standards ready, 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 your receiver. The multi–zone feature supports powered ZONE 2 output.

    DTS:X™ Ready

    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.

    Google Cast

    The SC–LX501 is Google Cast Ready, 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 devices, such as iPhone, iPad, Android phone and tablet, Mac and Windows laptop, and Chromebook. Discover Cast–enabled apps at

    Ultra HD Upscaling/ Pass–Through with HDCP 2.2

    This 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, the SC–LX501 is ready for HDR (High Dynamic Range) and BT.2020 next generation video standards.

    MCACC Auto Room Tuning

    Create the ideal acoustic environment with Pioneer’s MCACC (Multi–Channel Acoustic Calibration System), developed through years of working closely with an award–winning recording studio. With the custom microphone, the system automatically compensates for differences in speaker size, level and distance, and equalizes response.

    Synchronized Sound with Phase Control

    As an innovative solution for the phase lag between the subwoofer and the main channel speakers caused by the network filter, Phase Control compensates the delayed bass to improve sound synchronization.

    Reflex Optimizer

    High directivity sound reflects off the ceiling, while low directivity sound directly reaches the ears. This difference causes a phase shift, making the sound unrealistic. To solve this, the new technology optimizes the performance of your up–firing elevation speakers for your listening environment, by aligning the phase of direct and indirect sound, matching the basic tone, and optimizing the upward–oriented frequencies. The result is overall seamless sound with Dolby Atmos enabled speakers, allowing the ideal reproduction of three–dimensional surround sound.

    Multi–room Audio Offers a Variety of Ways to Enjoy Music

    The SC–LX501 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.
