Dolby Atmos Equipment Requirements In addition to a Dolby Atmos compatible speaker set up, you must have a Dolby Atmos compatible receiver/processor and Dolby Atmos encoded content.

DTS:X Ready

DTS:X is the next-generation audio codec from DTS that leverages object-based audio to enable new immersive and interactive audio experiences. Since DTS:X can automatically adapt the audio to the existing channels and speaker system, no specific speaker layout is required. Experience an immersive soundscape with incredibly rich and life-like audio. DTS:X will be available with future firmware update.

Google Cast

The SC-LX501 is Google Cast Ready, the same technology behind Chromecast built-in, so you can use your mobile device to cast your favorite music, radio, or podcasts to your speaker.

Discover Cast-enabled apps at g.co/cast/audioapps. Google Cast will be available with future firmware update.

Supports up to 4K/60p/4:4:4/24-bit with HDCP 2.2 on HDMI IN (1/2/3) and HDMI OUT (MAIN/SUB).

MCACC Auto Room Tuning

Create the ideal acoustic environment with Pioneer's MCACC (Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration System), developed through years of working closely with an award-winning recording studio. With the custom microphone, the system automatically compensates for differences in speaker size, level and distance, and equalizes response.

Synchronized Sound with Phase Control

As an innovative solution for the phase lag between the subwoofer and the main channel speakers caused by the network filter, Phase Control compensates the delayed bass to improve sound synchronization.

Reflex Optimizer

High directivity sound reflects off the ceiling, while low directivity sound directly reaches the ears. This difference causes a phase shift, making the sound unrealistic. To solve this, the new technology optimizes the performance of your up-firing elevation speakers for your listening environment, by aligning the phase of direct and indirect sound, matching the basic tone, and optimizing the upward-oriented frequencies. The result is overall seamless sound with Dolby Atmos enabled speakers, allowing the ideal reproduction of three-dimensional surround sound.

Multi-room Audio Offers a Variety of Ways to Enjoy Music

The SC-LX501 will support FireConnect Powered by Blackfire with future firmware update. FireConnect is a stable wireless protocol that mirrors any audio source connected to the receiver"from vinyl to streaming audio"on optional FireConnect compatible speakers in other rooms.

Multi-room Audio is realized by FireConnect technology. FireConnect is a technology of Blackfire Research Corp, USA. We do not guarantee that the AV Receiver will support all devices incorporating FireConnect. Optional future 2016 Pioneer Wireless Speakers required
