Supports Dolby Atmos and DTS:X Playback

Object-based soundtracks allow independently mixed sound to play through any speaker in your system. Effects move all around as they do in real life, so you experience 5.2.2-channel Dolby Atmos or DTS:X formats as the director intended. DTS Neural:X is designed to identify spatial effects in multichannel soundtracks and upmix them for 3D playback, while DTS:X offers independent dialogue volume control for movies. Dolby Surround is also included to upmix legacy multichannel formats for playback in a Dolby Atmos-enabled environment.

Dolby Surround and DTS Neural:X Upmixing

The Elite VSX-LX104 can upmix other audio codecs using Dolby Surround or DTS Neural:X to simulate 3D surround sound.

DTS Virtual:X

With DTS Virtual:X, you can enjoy a three-dimensional sound similar to DTS:X without height or rear speakers. It supports 2- to 7.1.4-channel input sources for delivery on 2- to 7.1-channel speaker layouts. It works with all DTS codecs, including DTS:X.

Personal Preset

Press the Personal Preset button on the front panel for three seconds, and your current settings such as volume level and listening mode are saved. Up to three presets can be registered and recalled from the front panel button or the remote control.

Dialogue Enhancement

With this mid-range sound control feature, you can make independent volume adjustments to your media, including dialogue in films, with the up/down key on the remote control.

Supports 4K HDR, BT.2020, 4K/60 Hz, and HDCP 2.2

All of the HDMI ports pass 4K (60p, 4:4:4, 24-bit) video in HDR10, HLG, and Dolby Vision formats through to compatible displays. They also support the BT.2020 color standard and HDCP 2.2, allowing for copy protection compatibility. One output is ARC-compatible.

MCACC Audio Calibration

Tailor the audio to your room's acoustics with the MCACC (Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration) system. With the included microphone, the system automatically compensates for differences in speaker size, level, and distance, and equalizes response.

Powered Zone 2 with Dedicated DAC

With the powered feature, the receiver can directly drive speakers in another room without an additional amplifier. Additionally, the dedicated DAC for Zone 2 lets you listen to all your digital audio sources.

Zone B Line-Out

The Zone B line-out lets you connect a component with an analog RCA line input to audio sources connected to the receiver. Share sound to a nearby space, or connect a supported transmitter for your wireless headphones to enjoy your media without disturbing those around you.

Built-In Bluetooth Technology

Stream audio from your compatible devices via Bluetooth. With the Wake on Play function, the receiver automatically wakes up and switches the input when a Bluetooth source starts playing.

Dolby Atmos Height Virtualization, Available via a Future Firmware Update

When playing any Dolby format, engaging the Dolby Atmos Height Virtualizer helps provide a more immersive listening experience by creating a virtual surround and height effect from traditional speaker layouts. This feature is scheduled to be made available via a future firmware update.

Apple AirPlay 2, Available via a Future Firmware Update

Apple AirPlay 2 lets you stream audio to compatible speakers throughout your house using any compatible Apple device or by asking Siri, keeping it all in sync. This feature is scheduled to be made available via a future firmware update.

Pioneer VSX-LX104 Reviews

Excellent receiver!!!

By Claudio
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2020-04-17

Excellent receiver, good deal for the bucks, easy set up, works as announced. The 4 start is because the volume in the screen is in -dm, whatever that means making the less the number you read the louder it gets, what is very unpractical and annoying.

Why the numbers go backwards when increasing the ...

Why the numbers go backwards when increasing the volume?
Asked by: Claudio
This has to the with the attenuator as the number goes from negative to 0, this reduce the amount of restriction on power given to the receiver. The negative numbers are considered more accurate way to measure volume with 0 being the loudest to play safely without clipping. This practice largely has to do with older sound equipment not having a standard way of displaying volume because companies measured it different ways and display the same number but the volume would be different.
