It has Bluetooth and Apple AirPlay built-in for wireless connection to your compatible smart devices. The receiver outputs up to 120W per channel at 8 Ohms and features MCACC sound optimization to tailor the sound to your environment. It supports Dolby Atmos to create a more 3-dimensional sound space, and will also support DTS:X with a future firmware update.
In addition to Bluetooth and AirPlay, the VSX-LX501 has seven HDMI inputs and two outputs; three of the seven inputs support 4K and 3D, and the main output supports 4K, 3D, and ARC. It also has a USB port on the front for the playback of files stored on flash drives. Built-in Wi-Fi will allow you to wirelessly connect to your computer or NAS for playback of your stored files.
Note: Access to certain Internet-based content may require a subscription to a service. Not all services are available in all areas.
Multi-Dimensional Excitement with Dolby Atmos
Dolby Atmos surround sound technology dispenses with channel-based coding in favor of more advanced object-based coding, giving the sound designer the ability to precisely place sounds anywhere in the 3-dimensional space. The SC-LX501 features the ability to connect a 5.2 surround sound speaker system and two additional overhead speakers, or two additional Dolby Atmos-certified up-firing speakers.
DTS:X is the next-generation audio codec from DTS that leverages object-based audio to enable 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 rich and lifelike audio. DTS:X support will be added in a future firmware update from Pioneer; please see their website for more information.
The SC-LX501 is Google Cast-ready, so you can use your mobile device to cast your favorite music, radio, or podcasts to your speakers. You can control the audio from anywhere in the house using Cast-enabled apps running on your personal devices, such as iPhone, iPad, and Android phones and tablets; Mac and Windows computers; and Chromebooks. Google Cast will be available via a future firmware update.
Ultra HD (4K/60p/4:4:4/24-bit) Upscaling/Pass-Through with HDCP 2.2
This feature lets you take advantage of the highest-quality video sources for viewing on a 4K TV. With support for HDCP 2.2 on three of the seven HDMI inputs and the two HDMI outputs, you can enjoy premium content such as 4K videos with digital copy protection on a compatible display. What's more, the SC-LX501 is ready for HDR (High Dynamic Range) and BT.2020 video standards.
MCACC Auto Room Tuning
Create the ideal acoustic environment with Pioneer's MCACC (Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration System). With the custom microphone, the system automatically compensates for differences in speaker size, level, and distance, and equalizes response.
Synchronized Sound with Phase Control
As a solution for the phase lag between the subwoofer and the main channel speakers caused by the network filter, Phase Control compensates the delayed bass to improve sound synchronization.
High-directivity sound reflects off the ceiling while low-directivity sound directly reaches the ears. This difference causes a phase shift, making the sound unrealistic. To solve this, the technology is designed to optimize 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 Atmos-enabled speakers, allowing the ideal reproduction of three-dimensional surround sound.
Multi-Room Audio Offers a Variety of Ways to Enjoy Music
The SC-LX501 will support FireConnect Powered by Blackfire with a future firmware update and optional compatible Pioneer wireless speakers. FireConnect is a wireless protocol that is designed to mirror any audio source connected to the receiver – from vinyl to streaming audio – on optional FireConnect compatible speakers in other rooms.
