Raise your cinema expectations to the next level, with the 9.2 channel Pioneer VSX-LX303.

Up to 9.2 channels for totally immersive sound

Featuring up to 9.2 channels of surround sound, the VSX-LX303 gets closer to cinema levels of surround sound than ever. With nine channels of sound, you can choose between many different surround sound configurations, including four ceiling mounted speakers in a 5.2.4 Dolby Atmos/DTS:X set-up for the ultimate in sound immersion.

Class D 3 power
For powerful yet efficient sound, the VSX-LX303 uses Pioneer's Class D3 Direct Energy HD amp. This provides a hefty 170 watts per channel (at 6 ohms, 100 watts at 8 ohms), making the amp suitable for use in larger rooms and even with inefficient speakers. Pioneer's Class D3 amps also use short, direct signal paths. By eliminating filters, feedback loops and current limiters, the sound quality is both purer and more dynamic.

Dolby Atmos, DTS:X plus DTS Neural:X for cinema sound
Dolby Atmos uses ceiling or upwards firing speakers to produce a multi-dimensional, immersive sound that's a match for the finest cinemas. DTS:X literally pushes the boundaries of what you can expect from home cinema. It renders images in three dimensions that conventional processing can't match. DTS Neural:X upmixer supports Dolby formats, giving you DTS surround whatever the format.

Reflex Optimiser makes the most of Atmos
Designed to get the most from Dolby Atmos speakers, Reflex Optimiser uses Phase Control technology for improved focus. By aligning the frequencies from ceiling or upward-firing speakers, the sound is more ‘together’, making it sound more natural and less disjointed.

More streaming options than ever – including Amazon Prime Music and Chromecast
Already one of the best-equipped AV receivers for streaming music, the Pioneer VSX-LX303 features more streaming options than ever. Integrated Amazon Prime Music (via firmware update) joins Spotify (requires Premium account for full features), TIDAL and Deezer to make this the best choice of AV receiver for music streaming. There’s also Google Chromecast built-in. This lets you stream music, podcasts and audio apps, including Google Play, at the touch of a button.

Multi-zone flexibility
This 9.2 channel amplifier brings greater multi-room entertainment possibilities. Use the amp in 5.2 surround mode and you have two pairs of powered outputs spare – ideal for running speakers in another couple of rooms. Even running 7.2 surround you still get a spare powered output. A passive Zone 2 output is also standard.

Support for Dolby Vision, HDR10 and HLG
The Pioneer VSX-LX303 is the perfect partner for your HDR-equipped TV and video sources. It supports HDR10, Dolby Vision, HLG and HDCP 2.2, which means you can play UHD Blu-ray discs and stream UltraHD video in the highest quality. It's also equipped with 4K upscaling, giving you the most detailed picture on your 4K TV from all sources. The HDMI sockets allow 4K pass-through, for hassle free switching and viewing without the receiver needing to be on.

Enhanced HDMI connectivity
As well as supporting a wide range of formats, the VSX-LX303 also features twin HDMI outputs. Ideal for running a projector and TV in the same room or a second TV in another room (without independent feed), twin HDMI outputs make this a flexible home cinema hub. As well as the six HDMI inputs at the back, there’s also a front-mounted HDMI – perfect for occasionally connected sources such as a games console or camera.

DTS Play-Fi for effortless streaming and multi-room
DTS Play-Fi is a premium, wireless control system that brings everything under one 'roof'. Download the free app and you'll not only have access to Internet radio but also popular music apps such as Spotify, Tidal, Deezer and Napster. As well as bringing all your streaming sources together, Play-Fi offers the potential for full multi-room music. Simply add other Play-Fi compatible sources and you'll quickly be able to build up a comprehensive music system around your home - all under the control of a single app.

FlareConnect for any music source in any room
Streaming music between rooms from any source, including records and CDs, is easy with FlareConnect. When used with compatible FlareConnect speakers, you can listen to your treasured vinyls and CDs in any room. Music selection, speaker grouping and playback control is all built-in to the Pioneer Remote App for effortless smartphone or tablet control.

Connect your other sources – including a turntable
When it comes to connecting older sources, the VSX-LX303 has everything covered – right down to your turntable. Legacy sources such as DVD players or older games consoles connect via digital optical (2), coaxial component and composite (2) inputs. As well as a turntable input there are four line level ones – ideal for a CD player, music streamer and other music sources. With USB sockets at both the front and rear, connecting a media device and playing back your digital music library is easily achieved.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Astounding Value - packed with features I am delighted to have acquired such a high spec machine at a fraction of the price of comparable ones on the market - an Atmos receiver with 9.2 channels for less than £500, backed up both by Pioneer's renowned build quality and Richer Sounds' excellent extended warranty (refunded if no claim made) is truly an outstanding deal

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful 9-channel A/V Receiver I bought this A/V receiver as an upgrade for my 9-year old Onkyo unit and wow, how much more powerful is this unit !! It's got 9-channels, which allowed me to setp Atmos 5.1.4 configuration at home and this unit drives my Dali Oberon 7 speakers quite very well. The service from Richer Sounds was excellent as always and will continue to shop for all my technology needs with them again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerfull AV Amp This is a very good AV Amp for your money .It is a easy setup and once up and running I had to do some manual adjustments to my taste such as to much bass on Blue Ray disks and to little bass on Hi Res music playback from the USB port and TV and Amazon Prime music Yes this AV receiver has Amazon prime music on its Aps You have 3 pre-sets on the equalizer for your saved settings .Once this has been done this is a very good all in solution for your movies and music playback and has a genuine 100 watts per channel 2 channels driven which is plenty of power for my Q Acoustics 3050 main front speakers .I have no subwoofer in this setup and with this setup the power from this amp will shake your room Please note I am only using a 5 speaker setup with the front main speakers Bi Amped so I cannot comment on Dolby Atmos playback

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pioneer VSX-LX303 The AV receiver was easy to setup. When checking for the settings noted that the speakers were set to Large, Changed to small and crossover from 150 to 120. A few small adjustments, and wow, Amazing sound, Brings my movies in DTS5.1 to life. All small sounds detail conveyed with clarity and where there is bass the woofer came alive. Highly recommend to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bargain entry to Dolby Atmos 5.1.4 Yes that not a mistake in the title header it's the truth this Av Receiver can do 5.1.2 as well as 7.1.2 and the magically 5.1.4 I kid you not after getting two pairs of Elac Debut Atmos speakers to compliment my existing setup. When setting up the system using the MACC Setup you may have to retweek the sound levels either by reversing the setup manually pressing the Home button on your remote and navigating to the Speaker Sound level and changing it I.E from -5.5 to +5.5, next step go to Sound input absorber by pressig the AV adjust button to raise the channel level from the default 00.00b up to +12.00 because with doing a bit of manual tunning the system will sound very underpowered thinking you just wasted alot of money on a very good AV Receiver. Once up and running this machine did a sterling job with the sound from the Atmos Track of Blade Runner The Final Cut in the opening scenes of the film where you could hear the flying cars whizz past you along with the scene where Decker is eating his meal at the street vendor in the rain where you can hear every raindrop in the background plus the booming voice of the airship annoucement "Escape to the Clononies where you can begin again" sweeping past one Atmos speaker to another. the other road test film is Marvel Avengers End Game where once again this machine brought out every low and high the soundtrack it had and then some. the machine also supports Dolby Vision so if you have a tv, 4k Blu ray Player that supports this it's another plus. I'll get this right out of the way this machine CANNOT DO 7.1.4 Atmos as this machine has only 9.2 channels of sound as opposed to 11.2 sounds to get 7.1.4 (With help form a pre amp) the receiver has two optical ports, 1 coxial port, 5 HDMI ports at the back of the machine along with phono stage for a Moving Magnet Turntable and 1 HDMI port at the front of the receiver as a USB port. To finish it off connections on this machine it has bluetooth, Wi Fi, Chromecast (Audio Only) Airplay and services Spotify, Tidal, Deezer ending off with Amazon Music. In short your getting a lot of tech for a bargain price from a AV Receiver that should be costing four digit figures!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well, watch out for learning remote issues Bought this a couple of weeks ago as I was upgrading my system to 4K, replacing a Yamaha RX-A810. Generally easy to install, but problems getting it to work with a harmony remote until I changed the iR transmitter, so probably a bit sensitive to the bandwidth of the IR transmitter. Otherwise superb And pleasantly surprised to see it connected to my amazon music account. It’s going to take me a while to check out all of the new features

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic sound I bought this to create a mini dolby atmos cinema room and at this price im really happy with the results.
