Pioneer SC-LX901 11.2-ch Class D3 Network AV Receiver overview

11.2CH CLASS D3 AV RECEIVER BRAND SOURCE ONLY SC-LX901

Manufacturers Product Description

The Elite® SC-LX901 featuring 11.2-ch Class D3 amplifier is fully-equipped for the latest multi-dimensional surround sound formats, DTS:X™ and Dolby Atmos®, featuring the Reflex Optimizer for Dolby enabled speakers. With Ultra HD (4K/60p/4:4:4) upscaling/pass-through and HDR/BT.2020 standards ready, 4K images are ever more impressive. In addition to internet radio and various network streaming services, with Google Cast™ built-in you can use your mobile device to cast your favorite music to the SC-LX901. The multi-zone feature supports powered ZONE 2/ZONE 3 output. Class D3 Amplifier (Direct Energy HD Amplifier) With the Class D3 Direct Energy High fidelity class D) Amplifier, the SC-LX901 is ready to meet the needs of the latest HD content. With our MOSFET, the Direct Power FET, this simple, high powered solution is provided to fully meet today's AV entertainment standards. The custom bypass capacitors further enhance the advantages of the Class D3 amplifier, producing powerful bass while also delivering the subtle details. High-Power Simultaneous Multi-Channel DriveWith Class AB amplifiers, driving all channels at full power is only possible for a short time, at around 300 W to 400 W power output. The SC-LX901's Class D3 Amplifier has the ability to simultaneously drive 11-channels at 850 W power output, while efficiently delivering dynamic content. Quick-Response SoundThe Direct Power FET is directly connected to the print circuit board without any additional wiring. This simple structure maximizes audio performance by reduced noise and improved switching, offering a quick-responding sound, perfect for digital content playback. High EfficiencyThe Class D3 Amplifier has been designed with a simple structure to take a straight and short signal path, resulting in improved sound quality. Improved Circuit DesignThe SC-LX901 is equipped with dedicated ICs on the circuit board, all in the pursuit of delivering crisp, clean sound. The operational amplifier IC for processing small signal is set apart from the amplifying section to prevent mutual interference. This allows clear signal to be transmitted to the Direct Power FET.Low Heat Generation The simple form of the Direct Power FET has the advantage of improved thermal characteristics. In addition to the upper-side heat dissipation from the heat sink, the circuit board's heat radiation feature is also utilized for downward heat dissipation, providing efficient cooling for a superior performance.Separate Design for Analog Small Signal Dedicated ICs are lavishly used on the circuit in pursuit of ideal sound. The Op-amp IC for processing small signal is set apart from the amplifying section to prevent mutual interference. This allows clear signal to be transmitted to the Direct Power FET. Additionally, the Rubycon chip film capacitor MU 25p further reduces the influence of residue noise from the high power section.ESS SABRE32 Ultra DAC The highly acclaimed 192 kHz/32-bit ESS SABRE32 Ultra DAC (ES9016S) is adopted to deliver exceptional sound, with ultra-low distortion and high signal-to-noise ratio. It offers jitter-free performance for an astounding audio reproduction with rich deep bass, maximizing the full potential of Pioneer's Class D3 amplifiers.Low Leakage Flux Power Transformer The power transformer features minimum leakage flux, ensuring low noise with increased S/N ratio.
