Following a long line of award-winning greats, the Pioneer SC-LX701 meets the highest standards.

Legendary Pioneer SCLX build quality

Fastidious attention to detail shown in the Pioneer's construction gives it first-rate sound quality. Featuring an Anti-Standing Wave Insulator and Rigid Trans-Stabiliser, the heavyweight casing isolates the sensitive electronics from mechanical and electrical interference. This gives a purity of sound that only the finest AV receivers can match.

Digital precison from the ESS SABRE 32 Ultra DAC
Featuring a top quality ESS SABRE 32 Ultra DAC, the Pioneer SC-LX701 delivers studio quality digital audio. With a high signal-to-noise ratio and wide dynamic range, digital audio benefits from ultra-low levels of noise and deep, powerful dynamics. Whether watching a Blu-ray film or listening to streamed music, the benefit to all digital audio is breathtaking to hear.

Class D 3 power
For powerful yet efficient sound, the SC-LX701 uses Pioneer's Class D3 Direct Energy HD amp. This provides a hefty 135 watts per channel, making the amp suitable for use in larger rooms and with pretty much any type of speaker. 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.

Reflex Optimizer
Dolby Atmos and DTS:X sound great but, with upward firing speakers, there can be phasing issues that make the sound disjointed. Pioneer's new Reflex Optimizer solves this problem by aligning the phase of direct and indirect firing speakers, matching their basic tone and optimizing the upward-oriented frequencies. The sound loses none of its 3D dimensionality but now sounds more precise and realistic than ever.

Ready for DTS:X
DTS:X is the flagship processor from this highly respected tech company. It literally pushes the boundaries of what you can expect from home cinema. This highly sophisticated processor renders images in three dimensions that conventional processing can't match. It also offers other advantages such as the ability to boost the spatial effect of conventional DTS and easily adapts with your existing speaker configuration.

Dolby Atmos
Optimised for Dolby Atmos, you can be amongst the first to experience the wonder of Dolby Atmos in your own home. Producing a multi-dimensional and totally immersive sound, Dolby Atmos has been hailed as the greatest advance in surround sound for 20 years - so don't miss out!

Google Cast for seamless streaming
The SC-LX701 comes with Google Cast compatibility. Using the same technology behind Google's Chromecast, you can use your mobile device to cast your favourite music, radio, or podcasts to your speakers. You can control the audio from anywhere in your home using Cast-enabled apps running on your personal device, be it iPhone, iPad, Android phone or tablet, Mac or Windows laptop, or Chromebook.

New FireConnect (coming soon!)
Another exciting new feature for the SCLX701 is support for FireConnect, Powered by Blackfire. This cutting-edge wireless technology gives multi-source, multi-room interaction between compatible devices, making it simple to set up a wireless multi-room system that also streams HD audio and will include video in the future. With our homes becoming ever 'smarter' this is the technology to integrate it all together.

UltraHD, 4K upscaling and HDR support
Helping to make the SCLX701 compatible with the very latest tech, Pioneer have sought to meet the highest specifications possible. Not only is it compatible with 4K TV but also the enhanced HDR (High Dynamic Range) tech. Support for HDCP2.2 means you can use it with the latest UHD Blu-ray players, giving stunning levels of picture clarity. 'Super Resolution' 4K upscaling lets you upscale standard Blu-rays to a resolution that makes the most of your 4K TV, for even crisper detail.

Wi-Fi with Spotify and AirPlay
Connect via Ethernet or wi-fi to your home network and gain access to a whole new world of entertainment. From here you'll be able to access a massive range of Internet radio stations plus music services such as the hugely popular Spotify (premium account required for full features) and Deezer. There's also AirPlay, making it easier than ever to stream from your Apple iOS devices, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just keeps getting better Bought as a replacement for an SC-LX59 that sadly expired. Easy plug and play replacement and software seems a lot more sorted on this model. Great for movies with lots of power. Sometimes wish for a bit more centre channel but this is probably down to the encoding. Cheaper amps with similar spec are available now though so would recommend a trial before you buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Upgraded from the denon AVR-X220W I feel that I have to rite a review as this AV got a bit slated in What hi fi. I have had this amp 5 days now and I upgraded from the denon AVR-X220W Firstly I do have to agree with what HIFI about the depth of sound I played the exact movie that W hifi tested it out with and I know the denon that I have is a lot lower in the price range but yes that depth of sound was a bit less real like it was with the denon but that’s it it was still awesome and what it lost in that slight defect in the sound grade the power and base that it pushed threw my speakers and around the room was 10/10 the set up was effortless just pressed a button and sat back for 15 mins had a coffee and off I went. The interface is really good setting up the wireless streaming was also effortless. This unit retailed at £1600 and now if you look you can get it for £800 it’s well worth the money and I’m hooked on pioneer again. Apart from the one little point and it was the echo inside the derelict space ship they was not quite on point in the movie Star Wars the force awakens. So for that and for the price and for what it lost in some sound points it made up big time everywhere else I’m giving it a 9/10

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent receiver, great features. Very happy Great value for money, has excellent features especially the full MCACC setup, it does all the hard work for you. Takes about 15-20 minutes to complete the setup but it's well worth it. The receiver works especially well with my pioneer elite atmos speakers and Panasonic DMP-UB900 4K bluray player. Amazing product the best receiver I've had yet.
