All seven input and two output ports of the HDMI receiver are compatible with the new version of the protection system for copyright digital content HDCP 2.2., And are also able to work with video with a resolution of 4K with parameters up to 4: 4: 4 60 Hz. In addition, it supports work in wireless Wi-Fi networks, for which the device is equipped with a built-in dual-band (5 GHz and 2.4 GHz) Wi-Fi adapter.

Setup

For integration into the home computer network, the Pioneer VSX-LX102 is equipped with an Ethernet RJ-45 port.
