Pioneer SC-LX59 AV Receiver
Enjoy precise audio reproduction, just as the creators intended with the AV receiver featuring Direct Energy HD (High fidelity class D) amplifier and SABRE32 Ultra DAC. Dolby Atmos brings a new level of surround sound in the ideal environment made by Pioneer’s MCACC Pro auto-room calibration with Full Band Phase Control, while the objectbased DTS:X format will also be available with firmware update. Other highlights include video scaler with Super Resolution, Ultra HD Pass-through with HDCP 2.2, and aluminium front panel.
Direct Energy HD Amplifier
For the ideal multi-channel environment, all channels should have the same speakers, driven by the same amplifier, under same conditions. So for the SC-LX59, Pioneer has adopted the Direct Energy HD Amplifier capable of simultaneous high-power output for all channels. The core Direct Power FET has a simple structure with the semiconductor chip directly mounted on the circuit board. As a result, a large reduction in inductance components for improved signal quality, smaller heat sink by efficient heat dissipation, and shorter transmission path by cleaner circuitry have been achieved, realizing quality sound, high-power output, and high efficiency at the same time. As the Direct Energy HD Amplifier continues to improve by each generation, it creates the ideal reproduction environment for object audio as well as legacy formats.
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. With the ideal reproduction environment created by MCACC Pro, and the powerful and precise multichannel output by the Direct Energy HD Amplifier, the SC-LX59 maximises the advantages of the DTS:X format. * DTS:X will be available with firmware update.
The SC-LX59 is compatible with the 7.2.4ch*, 9.2.2ch*, 7.2.2ch, 5.2.4ch configurations of Dolby Atmos®. You can reproduce objectoriented sound in smooth, curving movements, or the realistic threedimensional movement overhead by the top speakers. However, the appropriate playback environment is required to bring out the best from Dolby Atmos. This is provided by MCACC Pro, which allows the phase for all frequencies of each speaker, allowing the most precise speaker drive for faithful reproduction of the true-to-life soundscape of Dolby Atmos. With synchronised sound and image, you can experience total immersion in the movie world.
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’s auto room tuning technology, the ideal multi-channel reproduction environment can be created, which faithfully replicates object audio and the intention of the directors.
Ultra DAC The highly acclaimed 192 kHz/32-bit ESS SABRE32 Ultra DAC (ES9016S) delivers exceptional sound with ultra-low distortion and high S/N ratio. It offers jitter-free performance for an astounding audio reproduction with rich deep bass.
