Pioneer Incorporates Class D3 Amplifier in $1K Elite SC-71 and SC-72 Home Theater Receivers


Pioneer today introduced the Elite SC-71 and SC-72 home theater AV receivers, offering high audio performance utilizing the power of Class D3 amplification.

The 7.2-channel receivers are designed to deliver studio quality audio and video output along with multi-zone and multi-source capability, 4K Ultra HD upscaling, high-resolution audio playback and the convenience of wireless control via Pioneer's proprietary iControlAV2013 App.



First introduced in a $7,000 Elite AV receiver, Pioneer's ultra high performance Class D3 amplifier technology is now integrated in both SC-71 and SC-72 models. Class D3 is engineered to operate at extremely high output levels with virtually no distortion and no loss in performance, even when all channels are simultaneously driven at full volume.

The SC-71 and SC-72 are built for installation flexibility. All seven speaker outputs can be reconfigured five different ways, including a 7.2-channel speaker setup or a full 5.1-channel with the extra outputs used for powering a completely different zone altogether, and all controllable from the receiver and/or user's portable device via the iControlAV2013 App (available for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch and Android OS devices).

Both models also offer simultaneous entertainment from different sources in up to three zones - a main zone, a powered Zone 2 (two speakers in a second room) and a third HDZone (additional HDMI?source to a third room).

With the SC-72 (for Zone 2), the model adds the ability to adjust tone (treble and bass), volume and balance (left and right), and the option to incorporate a subwoofer to create a more powerful 2.1-channel system. The SC-72 also offers output for a fourth zone (Zone 3), a two channel audio experience with the ability to control volume and balance.

For advanced home theater control, both receivers are certified for compatibility with the most popular custom control companies, including Crestron and Control4, and offer custom installation features including full two-way RS-232C-over-IP control, including the ability to receive metadata from network and iOS connected devices.

Pioneer's proprietary iControlAV2013 App, available free of charge on the App Store on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch or at www.AppStore.com, or Google Play (www.GooglePlay.com) for Android devices, offers wireless control over the features and functionalities of the SC-71 and SC-72 from the convenience of the user's own smart device. Both models also feature Pioneer?s AVNavigator (now available for Windows on the bundled CD-ROM, for Mac from the Pioneer website and for iPad on the App Store), a two-way interactive owner's manual that walks users through the entire setup process of the receiver including speaker arrangement, sound optimization and firmware updates.

The SC-71 and SC-72 enable playback of WAV, MP3, WMA, AAC and FLAC files from a networked computer or a connected USB drive. For 2013, Pioneer also added playback of high-resolution AIFF and Apple Lossless files, and Gapless and DSD file music playback. Both receivers are Windows 81 certified and feature DLNA 1.5 certification for music content playback from a networked DLNA server or DLNA application being used on a Windows PC, Mac, or smartphone connected on a home network, either through a wired Ethernet connection or optional AS-WL300 wireless Wi-Fi adapter.

The receivers also offer access to today?s most popular Internet radio music services including PANDORA and vTuner internet radio. Pioneer's PUSH PLAYER, a feature on the iControlAV2013 App designed for the new Elite receivers, enables users to access the music libraries stored on their devices and create playlists for wireless streaming.

Users of iOS devices can take advantage of Apple's AirPlay, which allows users to stream their iTunes music whether from Mac or PC, as well as music stored on their iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Both receivers also support Android OS devices, and on compatible HTC smartphones (including the new HTC One Phone) using HTC Connect.

Both SC receivers also support the next generation 4K Ultra HD resolution standard, with the ability to pass through 4K video signals to any compatible displays. The models also have the ability to upscale lower resolution analog and HDMI video signals for viewing in 4K Ultra HD resolution when used with the latest 4K displays.

The new receivers include built in Mobile High Definition (MHL) connectivity for playback of audio and video content (including high-definition 3D content) and faster phone charging. The higher model SC-72 utilizes an aluminum panel and insulated dual chassis to reduce noise and improve audio quality output.

Both Elite SC-71 and SC-72 receivers will be available in June with suggested retail prices of $1,100 and $1,400 respectively.
