Pioneer SC-LX701-B AV Receiver

SKU: SCLX701B
£1,399.99

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 Google Cast and the high-performance, brand-neutral, FireConnect multi-room standard after a free update.
