$800Pioneer Elite SC-75 Home Receiver
Call it Audio Muscle — Class D3 Amplification
Rated at 135 Watts x 7 channels (8 Ohms, 1kHz, 0.08% at 2Ch driven), the SC-75 is a formidable multi-channel AV receiver. While lesser amplifiers’ output diminishes as channels are added, the SC-75 has the power to drive multiple channels simultaneously with no significant drop in per-channel output. This ensures that you’ll enjoy the full impact and dynamic range of high-resolution multi-channel audio as never before. Plus, the power consumption of the Digital Class D3 Amplifier is well below that of class AB amplifiers, helping you to save energy, too.
Stunning High-Definition Audio with THX® Select2 Plus Certified
The SC-75 is THX Select2 Plus Certified, offering startling surround sound in rooms up to 3,000 cubic feet in size with a 12 foot or greater viewing distance from the screen. The SC-75 also supports high-definition audio formats like Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD® Master Audio, as well as DTS® Neo:X surround, providing a 3-D surround experience for up to 9.2 channels.
The SC-75 takes the multi-room experience to a whole new level with the ability to deliver up to four different zones of content. It’s capable of powering a 5.1 Home Theater in the main zone, stereo audio in Zones 2 and 3, and delivering HD video content in Zone 4 via HDMI®. All zones can enjoy different content at the same time. Control the entire experience with our new iControlAV2013 Android/IOS application.
The SC-75 supports the most popular high-resolution digital file formats, such as AIFF, WAV, FLAC and Apple Lossless, so audio enthusiasts can hear to their favorite music as it was originally intended. Apple Lossless enables the exact data to be reconstructed from the compressed data, so there’s no discernible loss in audio quality. Stream your MP3, AAC, WMA, WAV and FLAC music files from your compatible PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone. Plus, Gapless Playback eliminates sound gaps between consecutive tracks that were meant to be played continuously, such as with classical music or live recordings.
