Massive Power Meets Great Design

Driven by powerful Class D amplification, the SC-XL57 produces a continuous 190 W output per channel, allowing you to enjoy your music with maximum impact. The SC-LX57 integrates an ESS Technology Inc. SABRE 32bit Ultra DAC, the industry’s benchmark for audio digital-to-analogue conversion, to reproduce music with unsurpassed fidelity. With an Audio Scaler on board even regular CD quality content can be upscaled up to 192 kHz/32 bit to create a “high-resolution” experience. The receiver plays back DSD files, high-resolution AIFF, Apple Lossless, WAV and FLAC files for which gapless playback is supported as well.

Enjoy playback in other rooms via HDZone, a Zone 2 HDMI out for routing either the same signal as the main zone or a separate source to a second zone via HDMI. On top of that you get a digital connection to connect the receiver with your iPod, iPhone, iPad or Android device (via MHL), and you can enjoy easy-to-operate worldwide internet radio (vTuner) and network streaming via DLNA or Apple AirPlay when you connect via LAN.

A built-in ECO Mode lets you save energy without compromising on sound and video performance. Compatible (free) smartphone/tablet apps include the advanced remote control app iControlAV2013.


Energy Efficient Settings

Use the ECO Mode to save energy. It analyses your sources in real time, adjusting power consumption accordingly to meet your needs, or you can choose the power-saving settings that are right for you. You can control ECO Mode using the receiver's front panel or the included remote control.


Enjoy Spotify

Spotify Connect is a Premium feature that lets you play and control Spotify on your devices. Choose music on your mobile and listen on your speakers. At home, hit play on your mobile and hear high fidelity sound on your audio speakers. Enjoy instant access to millions of songs with Spotify.


Stream with Ease

DLNA and AirPlay are widely supported on PCs, laptops, smartphones and other devices. As this receiver is DLNA and AirPlay certified, you can easily stream audio from such a device. Apple's AirPlay lets you stream music from your entire iTunes library.


Hi-Res Audio

In addition to MP3, WMA, AAC, FLAC and WAV music file playback from a networked computer or USB drive, you can now also enjoy playback of high-resolution AIFF and Apple Lossless files as well as gapless playback for AIFF, Apple Lossless, WAV and FLAC files.


The Remote Reinvented

iControlAV lets you modify all important receiver functions from your smartphone or tablet (iOS / Android). The 2013 version brings a new user interface and easy to navigate feature menu, as well as a dedicated “ECO MANAGER” page for energy efficient settings. PUSH PLAYER, Pioneer’s new music streaming setting, lets you access the music libraries stored on your device and create playlists that can be streamed wirelessly to the receiver, all from within the app.


Massive Power

Audiophile level Class D amplification brings you unprecedented power output. Short signal paths ensure impeccable sound, while efficient cooling provides superior performance with lower power consumption (-44% vs analogue amps). Now with 4-16Ω speaker support.


Multi-Zone Capabilities

All new receivers offer simultaneous entertainment in multiple zones – including a HDZone with a dedicated HDMI output to an additional room. Up to four different iOS devices running Pioneer’s iControlAV2013 App can simultaneously control the AV receiver to take full advantage of the receiver's multi-room capabilities.


Loves Your Mobile Devices

Connect your Apple device (via USB) or Android device (via MHL) directly to the receiver to view stored photos or videos. You can also stream directly from e.g. YouTube to your LCD TV. HTC Connect makes it easy to wirelessly stream your music straight from your HTC One phone.


4K Ultra HD Pass Through and Upscaling

Experience real high definition with 4K ultra-high resolution video. The receiver is designed for the next generation 4K Ultra HD resolution standard, with the ability to pass through 4K video signals to compatible displays, offering the highest quality video image available. Additionally, it can upscale lower resolution video signals for 4K Ultra HD when used with the latest 4K displays.


Improving Audio

The audio scaler upscales your audio by expanding a two-channel digital signal to 32-bit to improve resolution and density. The sampling rate can be increased to 192kHz, reducing noise, and enhancing the characteristics of the digital signal.
