Defy the limits of home cinema
The SC-LX59 receiver achieves unprecedented realism, thanks to Dolby Atmos® surround sound driven by powerful Class D3 amplification. The SC-LX59 provides studio-grade room calibration with MCACC® Pro. Along with advanced multi-zone features and effortless connectivity, it offers advanced Super Resolution video scaling with 4K Ultra HD pass-through with HDCP 2.2, and the immersive new DTS:X surround-sound format (available with a firmware update).
Powerful Class D3 Amplification
Power and efficiency are hallmarks of the SC-LX59, thanks to Class D3 amplifiers that deliver plenty of power in a cool-running, lightweight package. Pioneer’s advanced Class D3 digital circuitry overcomes the limitations of traditional Class AB amplifier designs, which suffer reduced power output as channels are added. Instead, Pioneer Class D3 delivers full power across all nine channels simultaneously, for a total of 760 watts (8 ohms, 1 kHz @ 1.0% THD). The Elite SC-95 recreates the full impact and dynamic range of today’s high-resolution multi-channel audio and movie soundtracks. With a direct signal path and no EMI filters, feedback loops or current limiting, these amps can handle low-impedance speaker loads that challenge lesser receivers. Meanwhile, the amps in the SC-LX59 are so efficient, they generate less heat and energy loss while consuming a fraction of the power and with greater reliability.
Dolby Atmos® Revolutionizes the Surround Landscape.
The SC-LX59 with Dolby Atmos will literally change your experience with movies and music, and all it takes is one listen. The SC-LX59 integrates Dolby’s groundbreaking surround technology and is compatible with 7.2 4ch*, 9.2 2ch*, 7.2 2ch and 5.2 4ch, configurations for Dolby Atmos. It works by adding height to the sonic landscape, creating a true 3D, multi-dimensional space that puts listeners inside the experience. Optimized room calibration through the built-in MCACC Pro feature, in conjunction with Atmos-enabled speakers like the Elite Home Theater System or dedicated ceiling-mounted speakers, reproduces object-oriented sound in smooth, curving, and realistic three-dimensional movement overhead by top-firing Atmos drivers. Dolby Atmos brings new life to traditional soundtracks and music too, putting sounds into motion and delivering the full impact of the performance.*External amplifier required.
Ready for Immersive Surround Sound with DTS:X
The next-generation surround sound format from DTS, available as a no-cost firmware update, creates an amazing three-dimensional sound field that reproduces the movement of sound in space. It automatically adapts the signal to existing channels and speakers for captivating, interactive, 3-D realism!
Professional Calibration with MCACC Pro
MCACC (Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration) Pro takes room calibration to a new level of precision. Further enhancing the three-dimensional realism of the Atmos-enabled system as well as all of your other audio sources, MCACC Pro calibrates your room’s sound using a microphone to monitor the acoustic environment and an equalizer to optimize and precision-tune each speaker to the room. Pioneer’s Full-Band Phase Control technology eliminates phase lag to precisely control sound locations for ideal stereo and multi-channel sound reproduction. MCACC Pro is so advanced that it includes dual independent subwoofer EQ. Tailoring left and right-channel low frequency response curves lets you achieve optimum subwoofer performance, creating powerful bass response and seamless integration with your main speaker system. With the push of a button, it’s like having a professional acoustic engineer fine-tuned your home theater system.
ESS SABRE 32-bit DACs for the Highest Performance Audio
The SC-LX59 delivers unmatched digital-to-analog signal conversion. Two SABRE32 Ultra DAC (ES9016S) units from ESS Technology—recognized as among the best in the industry—are critical to achieving purity of sound, wide dynamic range and minimal harmonic distortion that let the high-power Class D3 amps perform to their fullest.
Precision Playback in Multiple Formats
Supporting high-resolution digital file formats (192kHz/24-bit) in WAV, FLAC, AIFF and Apple Lossless lets audiophiles hear their favorite music as it was originally intended. Apple Lossless reconstructs exact data from compressed data, with no discernible loss in audio quality. MP3, AAC, WMA, WAV and FLAC music files can be streamed from a compatible PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone. Gapless Playback eliminates gaps between consecutive tracks intended to be played continuously, such as classical music or live recordings.
Ultra HD Pass-Through with HDCP 2.2
The SC-LX59 supports transmission of 4K/60P/4:4:4/24-bit video signals and High Dynamic Range (HDR) signals, along with the latest HDCP 2.2 copyright protection standard. 4K Ultra HD pass-through is the newest and most exciting video standard boasting a resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 (24 Hz/25 Hz/30 Hz) pixels or 4,096 x 2,160 (24 Hz) pixels.
Multi-Zone Command from a single Source
TheSC-LX59 adds ultimate flexibility to the multi-room experience by delivering up to four different zones of content, capable of powering a 5.1 Home Theater in the main zone, and completely different content in another zone, HDZone. Pioneer’s exclusive iControlAV5 Android/IOS application lets you control the entire experience.
Casual Quality Wireless
Built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth® wireless technologies let you enjoy music in a smart fashion. A Wi-Fi connection that supports dual-band 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz transmissions delivers high fidelity, high-resolution audio with fewer interruptions. Wireless Direct is also supported, allowing control with Pioneer’s iControlAV5 app, and the wireless playback of music from smartphones and tablets even when a wireless LAN environment is not available.
Pioneer’s Ultimate Control App
Pioneer’s free iControlAV5 turns your iPhone®, iPad®, iPod® touch, or select Android devices into a powerful wireless remote that controls everything from volume and input selections to advanced features like EQ video adjustments and Internet Radio, and even streams music stored on your phone through the SC-LX89 using the new “Push Player” feature.
