Huge power meets extensive flexibility, making the Pioneer SC2023 one impressive AV receiver.

QUALITY CONSTRUCTION


Unlike most other AV receivers around this price, the Pioneer SC2023 uses a sophisticated Insulated Dual Chassis with Trans-stabiliser. Such attention to engineering detail ensures that the delicate digital stages don't suffer from the power supply vibration that can afflict lesser receivers. Better isolated components make for less distortion and therefore a cleaner sound and picture.

HIGH POWER AMPLIFIER

At the heart of this impressive AV receiver is Pioneer's latest Direct Energy HD amplifier, utilising Class D technology. The high efficiency digital Class D amplifier produces a huge 150 watts per channel while still using far less energy than a comparable analogue amp. The circuit design features short signal paths and quality components for the most accurate and detailed sound quality. Such effortless power not only fills larger rooms with ease but also widens your choice of speaker packages as even the most difficult to drive can easily be powered along by the punchy Pioneer.

NOW WITH 4K VIDEO SCALING

Going one stage further than conventional 1080p upscaling, this processor has the power to upscale to twice that level! With 4K the horizontal pixel count of 1080p TV increases from 1920 to around 4000 (there are several formats all offering slight variations). With 4K screens beginning to make more of an appearance this year, by equipping this Pioneer AV receiver with 4K upscaling, they have engineered in comprehensive levels of future proofing. In the meantime you can also upscale signals to 1080p for the best image quality with Full HD TVs and projectors. The HDMI sockets also allow 4K pass-through, for hassle free switching and viewing without the receiver needing to be turned on.

ZONE 2 HDMI

Making the Pioneer SC2023 ideal at multi-room tasking is a second HDMI output. Unlike other receivers with this feature, the SC-2023 gives you the option of watching the same or a different source, in Full HD, in a second zone. This means you can watch a Blu-ray in one room and TV in another, both in HD and all playing through the one AV receiver. Further adding to its multi-room credentials, the SC2023 also offers a passive Zone 3 option for music in a third room.

FULLY COMPREHENSIVE NETWORKING

The SC2023 comes with a LAN connection for integration with your home network. There's also Apple AirPlay compatibility, DLNA streaming and an optional wi-fi dongle for wireless connectivity. Apple's AirPlay lets you wirelessly stream music from any compatible Apple device - without the need for a separate home hub. DLNA streaming gets you access to music stored on your PC, laptop or NAS and plays it through the receiver. There's also access to Internet radio and music services, making the SC-2023 a fully comprehensive streamer.

SPOTIFY CONNECT

This Pioneer also has the advantage of offering Spotify Connect. Spotify Connect uses your existing Spotify account but seamlessly transfers it between sources. So, for example, you might be listening to Spotify on your mobile device then, when you arrive home, transfer it your Pioneer home system at the touch of a button! Wherever you use 3G or 4G, wi-fi or LAN, AirPlay, Bluetooth or UPnP, Spotify Connect simply keeps the music following - seamlessly.

IMPROVED CONTROL

In addition to offering multiple networking possibilities, the SC-2023 keeps control better than ever. The new iControlAV2013 app lets you control more functions than ever via your smartphone or tablet (Apple or Android). This app now offers a new feature that enables you to access the music libraries stored on your smartphone or tablet and create playlists that can be streamed wirelessly to the receiver, all from within the app. It can also access a massive range of adjustment settings, including a new ECO setting adjustment to lower energy use. The Pioneer SC2023 is compatible with Air Jam. Air Jam is a Bluetooth-based app that lets a group of people connect with their iPhones, iPod Touch or iPads and add their songs to the receiver playlist. In effect it's a local, social network for music and works well with the SC-2023 (optional AS-BT200 Bluetooth adaptor required).

HUGE RANGE OF CONNECTIONS

When it comes to connecting more conventionally, the Pioneer SC2023 is as impressive as ever. No fewer than eight HDMI sockets are provided with one being on the front for the connection of occasional devices such as a camcorder or smart phone. The front HDMI socket is also compatible with MHL (Mobile High-Definition Link) giving you the ability to transfer 1080p Full HD video from your smartphone or tablet. Also standard is an iPad/iPhone/iPod Digital USB connection. This allows plug-and-play flexibility without the need for a further docking station. The sound quality will be better than many docks, too, as you're using the processing power of the Pioneer rather than the dock's. Better still, Pioneer's Advanced Sound Retriever system enhances the typically compressed music from MP3/AAC systems and returns the sound to CD quality. The front mounted USB connection will also charge your Apple device - right up to the iPad.

EASY TO SET-UP

Although comprehensively equipped, the Pioneer SC2023 is by no means intimidating to use. Pioneer's unique Advanced 9-band MCACC (Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration) system will tune the amplifier to the size of listening room and speaker placement, at the touch of a button. Professional results no longer rely upon hours spent with a sound level meter and heavy study of the instruction manual! Finally, if you like the idea of high quality cinema sound, but simply don't have space for all the speakers around the room, then you'll be delighted to see Pioneer have fitted their Front Stage Surround Advance system. Simply place all the speakers by the TV, and let the Pioneer do the rest.

Precise, effortless sound with all the features you could possibly require; the Pioneer SC2023 has it all.
