The flagship Pioneer receiver has always been rather special, and the latest offering is the Pioneer SC-LX88. The key difference between this and last years model is the addition of HDMI 2.0 support. This allows the latest Ultra HD formats to work on this model, so makes this unit fully compatible. There's also the addition of Bluetooth as standard which is a handy feature for playing back music from your phone.

As always it supports a massive number of configurations, anything from 5.1 up to 9.2 and any shade in between. There's also multi room support - whether you use some of your spare channels to run a separate stereo zone or whether you use one of the three HDMI outputs to run a separate video zone.

All your usual features are here - including Ultra HD upscaling and up conversion so you'll get a significantly better UHD picture using this receiver.
