Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, 8x HDMI, USB-DAC, SABRE32 Ultra DAC, Wi-Fi & Bluetooth

Defy the limits of home cinema 

 

Combining the enhanced realism of Dolby Atmos® with the full power of 9 channels of Class D3 amplification, the SC-LX89 provides studio-grade room calibration with MCACC® Pro, and the coveted AIR Studios® Monitor certification ensures an unmatched surround-sound experience. 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, a USB-DAC for jitter-free digital networked audio streaming, and the immersive new object-based DTS:X surround-sound format (available with a firmware update).

The Winning Class D3 Advantage.

The no-compromise SC-LX89 is Pioneer's most powerful receiver this year, thanks to Class D³ amplifiers that deliver unbridled power in a light-weight, cool-running package. Unlike traditional Class AB amplifier designs, which suffer from reduced power output as channels are added, Pioneer’s advanced Class D3 digital circuitry provides identical and consistent high-current power to all of the speakers all of the time, not just a few of them, for a total of 850 watts (8 ohms, 1 kHz @ 1.0% THD)! The SC-LX89 recreates the colossal impact and dynamic range of 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. The SC-LX89 amps are so efficient, they generate radically less heat and energy loss than traditional Class AB designs, while consuming a fraction of the power for enhanced reliability.

Dolby Atmos® Revolutionizes the Surround Landscape.

Pioneer’s flagship receiver with Dolby Atmos will literally change the way you listen, and the proof is in the hearing. The SC-LX89 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. How does Dolby Atmos work? It adds 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. Dolby Atmos brings new life to traditional soundtracks and music too, putting sounds into motion and delivering the full impact of the artist’s work like never before. Pioneer's AV receivers with Dolby Atmos continue the Pioneer tradition of bringing state-of-the-art home theater technology into your home before others even know it’s there. *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.

Sound Certification by AIR Studios. A Serious Stamp of Approval

The SC-LX89 has been certified at London’s legendary AIR Studios, whose work is acknowledged worldwide for award-winning motion picture soundtracks and peerless recording and mastering. Like Pioneer, AIR Studios respects the artist’s intention and believes that faithfully reproducing what was originally created in the studio is the critical objective of the finest home theater system.

ESS SABRE 32-bit DACs for the Highest Performance Audio

The SC-LX89 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 via a wired network. The SC-LX89 features 192kHz/24-bit asynchronous USB-DAC (B-type) for ultra-high quality direct music playback from a USB connected PC or Mac. Gapless Playback eliminates gaps between consecutive tracks intended to be played continuously, such as classical music or live recordings. The SC-LX89 is so complete, it even features a Phono input (MM) for vinyl lovers.

Ultra HD Pass-Through with HDCP 2.2

The SC-LX89 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

The SC-LX89 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, stereo audio in Zones 2 and 3, and HD video content in the HDZone. All zones can enjoy different content at the same time. 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.
