Features

The Pioneer SC-LX801 specs at the flagship level with an amplifier that produces 200W/channel with an impedance of 6 Ohm or 140W /channel / 8 Ohm. The 9-channel amplifier allows users to implement the configuration of a surround sound system in 7.2.2 mode. The SC-LX801 manages to perfectly convey every voice of the crowds. The sound of the receiver traces the versatility of the panorama and the intelligibility of the quietest sounds. Detail and whipping are accompanied by harsh tops. The video system of the SC-LX801 is compatible with Dolby Vision and HDR10 technologies, supports extended color gamut according to the Rec.2020 standard.

Design and build

The body and design also play a role in creating sound. The receiver implements the architecture of a short signal path. It begins with a pair of Analog Devices SHARC processors that work in conjunction with the state-of-the-art multi-channel DSP Texas Instruments Aureus. And to reduce noise, maximum contour separation, a double chassis, and anti-vibration feet are used.

Connectivity

The Pioneer SC-LX801 is able to play high-res audio files from external USB storage and DLNA-servers, as well as broadcast content from streaming Internet services Deezer, Spotify and TIDAL.

Setup

The SC-LX801 features an advanced MCACC Pro auto-calibration system. Based on the results of measurements made using a microphone, this system performs equalization on each channel. MCACC Pro effectively deals with standing sound waves and can compensate for its own room resonances.

Pioneer SC-LX801 pros and cons

Pros

  • The bass is designed and tangible, fast enough and, most importantly, does not spread around the room. It feels like the sound is coming from a real source.
  • The ability to implement circuits 7.2.2 and 5.2.4 without additional amplifiers

Cons

  • Automatic setup is not so good. The user should make the manual correction of the sound
  • The firmware is buggy. There are some freezes during operational in the menu
  • Pioneer does not support the HLG. The image is not saturated
