Pioneer SC-LX57 9.2 channel AV receiver

Out Of Stock

"This 2013 model is discontinued and we've now completely sold out of stock on it. We're sorry. The replacement model is the SC-LX58

so why not take a look at it and let us find the perfect deal for you?"

Our Price: £0.00

Price as configured: £0.00


Pioneer have two AV ranges - the lower end range (which is anything but low end) which are all preceeded by VSX, and the high end range which are all preceeded by SC-LX. The Pioneer SC-LX57 is the entry level model in this high end range, which sounds very strange when you consider what it is. It's a full 9.2 channel AV receiver with 11.2 pre outs, and literally blows our socks off when it comes to high end audio sound.

Of course you can go even higher than this beast of a receiver, but we think this is a more than adequate receiver. It of course does everything - and does it well. As is usual with Pioneer you'll get outstanding audio on music. Couple this receiver with a high end full sized speaker system, or perhaps something like the B&W MT60 package if you fancy something smaller, and frankly you'll struggle to get better sound without spending a lot more.

Cinema sound is truly immersing and we think you'll be surprised by the presence and weight of this system. There's video upscaling and upconversion too so you'll be able to get the best out of your picture too - everything can be upscaled to 1080p - even to 4K if you already have one of the new Ultra HD televisions, but it's handy to have the ability there to keep things future proofed.

We think this receiver will keep you happy for years to come - why not give us a call on 0345 5577 335 if you'd like to find out more about it? And remember - the best deal is here!
