The Pioneer SC-2022 7.2-channel AV receiver provides 170W continuous output per channel. It offers all the features available in the VSX series combined with the same Audiophile Grade Class D amplification available in the SC models.
Audiophile-level Class D amplification brings you unprecedented power output. Short signal paths ensure impeccable sound and efficient cooling provides superior performance with lower power consumption (-44% vs Analogue Amps). Now with 4-16Ω speaker support.
Less jitter, better audio
Transmission via HDMI can cause clock jitter, resulting in sound distortion during the D/A conversion. PQLS “speed synchronises” the digital audio data between the receiver and your matching Pioneer Blu-ray player, reducing the jitter. The result is clear, rich and precise audio.
Strong Bass & Clear Highs
During Blu-ray Disc/CD playback, Auto Phase Control Plus makes a real-time analysis of the phase difference between the LFE (low frequency effect) and the main signals, and automatically compensates the gap. Elimination of phase lag enhances strong bass and clear high-frequency sound.
Bluetooth audio streaming
Stream audio from your Bluetooth-equipped phone, laptop or tablet (optional AS-BT100 adapter required). The Sound Retriever feature optimises sound quality during transmission.
Stream with DLNA
DLNA is widely supported on PCs, laptops, smartphones and other devices. As this receiver is DLNA certified, you can easily stream audio from such a device using your home network.
Stream with AirPlay
Apple's AirPlay lets you stream music from any compatible device connected to your home network. This means you can easily enjoy your iTunes music library through your AV receiver.
mage optimised for you
Advanced Video Adjust optimises the video signal according to your type of screen or projector. Based on MCACC calibration data, it also adjusts image quality to your distance from the screen.
The additional Stream Smoother will reduce block noise and mosquito noise on lower bit rate video content such as YouTube.
Always in full control
iControlAV2012 lets you modify all important receiver functions from your smartphone or tablet (iOS / Android).
Featuring Virtual Speakers and PQLS, it even allows you to define EQ frequencies by drawing out 'curves' on your smartphone's touchscreen.
Intuitive setup and operation
With the receiver connected to your home network, AVNavigator software makes installing a breeze. A Wiring Navi guides you in making the connections with speakers and other devices, and updates the receiver with the appropriate settings, while the interactive manual lets you intuitively explore every feature. AVNavigator is also backed by a free iPad app.
