Product Description

Pioneer SC-LX901 AV Receiver easily meets professional audio standards and has received the “Monitor” certificate from London’s Air Studios. For object-based cinema sound in the optimum expansion stage, the SC-LX 901 provides a total of 11 output stages for exceptional cinema or concert evenings while staying amply cool due to the highly efficient Direct Energy HD design.

The receiver is fully ultra-HD capable and supports the future HDR and BT.2020 colour and image extensions. With Pioneer’s patented super-res scaling, it transforms standard HD material into genuinely convincing 4K images. The new streaming function accommodates all transmission standards with integrated Bluetooth and dual-band WiFi.


With Tidal, Spotify and Deezer streaming, you can music access millions of titles directly (subscription required). The SC-LX 901 plays back high-res material from local media servers up to 24bit/192kHz and quad-rate DSD (11.2MHz). High-performance FlareConnect multiroom lets music from all sources connect to SC-LX901 and entire network of rooms to seamlessly play synchronised audio throughout the house.

Dolby Atmos Supported

The SC-LX901 is compatible with 7.2.4/7.2.2 and 5.2.4 channel configurations of the latest Dolby Atmos cinema sound platform. Replicate object-oriented sound in smooth curves or realistic overhead 3D movement.


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.

Chromecast built-in

The SC-LX901 comes with Chromecast built-in, so you can use your mobile device to stream your favourite music, radio, or podcasts to your speaker. You can control the audio from anywhere in the house using Chromecast-enabled apps running on your personal device—iPhone, iPad, Android phone and tablet, Mac and Windows laptop, and Chromebook.

DTS Play-Fi

DTS Play-Fi wirelessly streams any audio content from any compatible mobile device to the SC-LX901 and DTS Play-Fi compatible audio systems, creating a multiroom system in your home. You can stream different sources to different speakers at the same time from the Pioneer Music Control App.

Next-Gen Video Standard

The SC-LX901 supports pass-through for Dolby Vision and HDR10 signals. By connecting a compatible source device, you can enjoy these latest video standards on a compatible display. What’s more, all HDMI terminals support 4K (60p/4:4:4/24-bit), Wide Colour Gamut (BT.2020), and HDCP 2.2, so you will have no problem when upgrading to new devices, and can also enjoy premium content such as 4K videos with digital copy protection.


MCACC Pro, the pinnacle of Pioneer's auto room tuning technology, analyses the phase and group delay characteristics to precisely control phase differences between speakers. MCACC Pro corrects phase differences in all ranges and all channels, from phase difference in the original audio material to the sound emitted from the speakers.

Full Band Phase Control

Pioneer's Phase Control technology effectively eliminates phase lag and significantly improves the multi-channel sound without any extra operation. Furthermore, The Full Band Phase Control technology focuses on the group delay in the speaker network filter, and adjusts the phase of each unit as well as the group delay for each speaker.

Multi-range speakers gain the sound coherence of full-range speakers, while retaining the wide frequency range advantage. In an environment where the phase of all units and all channels are precisely controlled, a remarkably clear sound location with a surrounding feel is achieved. In combination with MCACC Pro, the ideal multi-channel reproduction environment can be created, which faithfully replicates object audio and the intention of the directors.

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 feel uncomfortable. 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 enabled speakers, allowing the ideal reproduction of three-dimensional surround sound.

Multi-room Audio

FlareConnect shares audio from network and external audio input sources between compatible components. Enjoy effortless multi-room playback of LP records, CDs, network music services, and more with supported components and speaker systems. Music selection, speaker grouping, and playback management across the home are built into the Pioneer Remote App.
