Multi-Dimensional Excitement with Dolby Atmos®
MCACC Pro Auto Room Tuning
The SC-LX801 is compatible with 7.2.2ch/5.2.4ch
configuration of the latest cinema sound platform, Dolby
Atmos ®. You can reproduce objectoriented sound in
smooth, curving movements, or the realistic threedimensional movement overhead by the top speakers.
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.
Dolby Atmos 7.2.2ch Speaker System
Full Band Phase Control
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.
Google Cast
The SC-LX801 has Google Cast, the same
technology behind Chromecast builtin, so you
can use your mobile device to cast your favorite
music, radio, or podcasts to your speaker. You
can control the audio from anywhere in the house using Cast-enabled
apps running on your personal device—iPhone, iPad, Android phone
and tablet, Mac and Windows laptop, and Chromebook. Discover
Cast-enabled apps at
* Google Cast will be available with future firmware update.
Ultra HD (4K/60p/4:4:4/24-bit) Upscaling/Pass-Through
with HDCP 2.2
The feature lets you take advantage of the highest-quality
video source for viewing on a 4K TV. With support for
HDCP 2.2, you can enjoy premium content such as 4K
videos with digital copy protection on a compatible
display. What’s more, the SC-LX801 is ready for the HDR
(High Dynamic Range) and BT.2020 next generation video standards.
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,
Before After
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
Multi-room Audio Offers a Variety of Ways to Enjoy
The SC-LX801 will support FireConnect™ Powered by Blackfire* with future
firmware update. FireConnect is a stable wireless protocol that mirrors any
audio source connected to the receiver—from vinyl to streaming audio—on
optional FireConnect compatible speakers** in other rooms.
* Supports up to 4K/60p/4:4:4/24-bit with HDCP 2.2 on HDMI IN (1/2/3/4/5) and
