Direct Energy HD Amplifier
Continuously evolving throughout the years, Pioneer’s Direct Energy HD Amp has now reached the 6th generation. New power coils are adopted for the ideal speaker drive, as well as new custom film capacitors co-developed with Shinyei Capacitor for the ultimate sound. The power supply and patterning has been developed through repeated tuning. Also, the entire transmission path from the pre stage to the power stage has been changed to balanced circuitry, to transmit noise-free high-quality signals to the power stage.
MCACC Pro Auto Room Tuning
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.
The SC-LX704 is IMAX Enhanced, certified to deliver the powerful sound just as intended by the filmmaker, and provide the immersive experience on your home theater.
Dolby Atmos®/Dolby Surround Upmixing
The SC-LX704 is compatible with 7.2.4ch*/7.2.2ch/5.2.4ch configuration of Dolby Atmos®. You can reproduce object-oriented sound in smooth, curving movements, or the realistic three-dimensional movement overhead by the top speakers. Other audio codecs such as PCM and DSD can be upmixed using Dolby Surround for enjoying 3D surround sound.
* Extra amplifier required.
Full Band Phase Control
The 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. The technology gives multi-range speakers the sound coherence of full-range speakers, while retaining the wide frequency range advantage.
DTS:X®/DTS Neural:X Upmixing
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 lifelike audio. Other audio codecs such as PCM and DSD can be upmixed using DTS Neural:X for enjoying 3D surround sound.
Works with Google Assistant
Works with Google Assistant so you can control your SC-LX704 with your voice via a smart speaker or Google-enabled device like Google Home. Play, pause, skip titles or control the volume just by asking your receiver to do so.
