Can the lx801 be set to 120hz crossover? I have the kef t301's and they should be set to a 120hz crossover but all I see are 80, 200, and 150hz. 100 is too low and 150 is far too high.

No other options. Your sub should be fine with 150, but try both and see which sounds better.

I am looking to replace my old marantz AVR with Pioneer lx801/701. I have 5.2.4 speaker configuration but all floor speakers will be driven by NAD power amp. New receiver will earn serving as preamp and for driving just 4 calling speakers. My question is wether lx801 would have any advantages over lx701 in this scenario?

Pull the plug on the receiver, wait 10secs, it should reset

So, i reset the receiver earlier this week and the chromecast did not come back. I unplugged it today for a few minutes, and it still didn't come back, then i tried that store settings, reset, then restore settings method and low and behold, it started working again. Only thing to note here is that the settings store/restore doesn't appear to keep calibration settings, just the other settings on the receiver.

Thanks my dudes!

I've come across another issue maybe you folks would know, after the last firmware update, bt2020 no longer passed through from any source to my TV. I can't seem to find any real video options aside from 1080p to 4k upscaling (which I have off). I ended up doing a full factory reset again, no change. Any ideas?

Edit: Turns out the previous firmware update (2150-1000-5070-0010) added a new HDMI option that is hidden from the GUI, letting you switch HDMI between standard and enhanced mode. Also, they set "standard" as the default mode, so doing a factory reset may cause your receiver to default back to this mode which means no BT2020 passthrough on 4k resolutions. Standard appears to only output HDMI 1.4 video standards.

To change this setting, press Dimmer and Auto/Direct together on the front panel. Hope that helps anyone else who comes across this issue.

Hi all,

I was looking to pair the Pioneer SC-LX701 with an Epson EH-TW9400: https://www.epson.com.au/products/projector/EH-TW9400.asp

Will the Pioneer support all the epic features of the 9400?

Cheers,
Zolt

You will find no TV or device other than HDMI 2.1 devices which are yet to be released supporting 4:4:4 60hz.

Owner's Thread for Pioneer SC-LX701 / SC-801 / SC-LX901 Receviers

I meant 12 bit 4:4:4 60hz is not possible, I'm not sure we are speaking of the same thing.
I have the SC-LX901 for 2 years and a Sony A1E 65 display, what I meant is that the 701 supports all current sources and authored media.

All the best.

Hello,

Can anyone tell me if the SC-LX901 refined edition worth the extra cost from the SC-LX901 regular edition ?

I am about to purchase this receiver and I was wondering if I should get the refined edition over the regular one.

Thanks a lot.

Andreas

it's supposed to have "handpicked" components, for better audio performance. Depends on your speakers and budget I think .

Hello,
Thanks for the reply
My speakers are the orb audio ones. Orb mod4 for the front and center, mod2 for the back and surround ones.

So basically both versions of the receiver are the same as I understand ? The refined edition is only 100 euro more expensive, I was just wondering if it was more current than the regular one for future proof purposes.

Thanks again.

Nice!
The chip & decoders on both are identical, so no updated technology, the difference is claimed in amplifier components.

Thomas,

Thanks a lot for the information

I have decided to go for the refined edition, just for the placebo effect ha ha ha - it does say refined on the box after all.

Hopefully will be much better than my current SONY STR-DA6400ES

Andy, It's a lovely Receiver, I haven't had any complaints! And the software has been updated as recently as July 2019. Most likely it'll blow any sony revceiver out of the water, any day .

The 2016 Pioneer Elite SC-LX801 and SC-LX701 have been officially discontinued and are out of production. Pioneer has moved those two A/V receivers to the no longer in production previous models area of their website. However the 2016 flagship Pioneer Elite SC-LX901 A/V receiver that offers up to 11.2 channels is still officially listed as a current model.

While Pioneer has released some new medium level 2019 Pioneer Elite A/V receivers this year, gone are the days that a new flagship A/V receiver is released every year (The demand for A/V receivers is lower in recent years as more people use the speakers in their flat panel screen or a sound bar instead. Many consumers that want a surround sound system do not want to have more than 7.1 or even 5.1 speakers in their home theater setup. A flagship A/V receiver that offers 11.2 or 13.2 channels is a small niche for those that want to install height and ceiling speakers to their exiting 7.1 or 7.2 surround sound setup ). It is now a possibility that maybe once every 5 years instead of once every year, that a new flagship Pioneer Elite A/V receiver will be released. If that theory is correct then a replacement to the 2016 Pioneer Elite SC-LX901 will not happen until sometime around September 2021. Another possibility is as demand for A/V receivers continue to decline that the 2016 Pioneer Elite SC-LX901 might be the last flagship A/V receiver offered by Pioneer as Pioneer makes the business decision to only offer lower to medium quality level A/V receivers with up to 9.2 channel support.

Worst case scenario is that one day many consumer electronics companies completely stop making all A/V receivers (Hopefully that will never happen).

Quite honestly, other than IMAX Enhanced, what additional feature is needed to be upgraded? eARC? Supposedly 901 already have/will have fw update for eARC. Even IMAX Enhanced is not a “needed” upgrade.

So nobody needs to be afraid of obsolescence when buying 901.

For the first time, I may not be upgrading my 801. I love the sound, and although I have listened to IE demo and IE home theatre (my clients’) I don’t feel compelled to upgrade to IE capable receiver unless tonloads of titles are available on physical media.

while I agree the need for annual releases isn't there (it never was), I don't see the need for a flagship quality AVR to be about more amplified channels.

Nothing wrong with quality improvements/power increases. And improve room correction. Keep the 7.x options with the same quality with 11/13 decode and pre-outs and tier based on power/features.

Or include extra amplified channels in higher tiers. But I suspect the high end would be fine with fewer amplified channels as they are separately amplifying 2 or 3 anyway (fronts and center)

I think the next HDMI spec would be the biggest driver. If possible through FW then we're waiting for the next big thing.


Options for Dirac and better MCACC would be on my list. If I could get LX-x01 features with Dirac I'd probably bite. (Or Anthem Room Correction at near Pioneer price and analog video support)

While I want an upgraded version of MCACC, I don’t want to use a system that requires me to use a laptop. I don’t mind tweaking via laptop/app, but I don’t want to always use a laptop when I want to change EQ curve etc. 😄

Pioneer Elite A/V receivers are the best or one of the best A/V receivers on the market. I have family members that use several Pioneer Elite A/V receivers everyday with the oldest one being a 11 year old 2008 model. They are really reliable and sound excellent.


I am pre-wired for a minimum of 13.2 channels including the height channels. Sometime in the future I was planning on purchasing either the 2018 Denon AVR-X8500H that is 13.2 channels with IMAX Enhanced and Auro 3D. On the other hand, I was thinking about hooking up a 2016 Pioneer Elite SC-LX901 that is 11.2 but I would not have Auro 3D or IMAX enhanced (The new 2019 Pioneers have IMAX enhanced). I really wish Pioneer would make a new A/V receiver that is 13.2 with Auro 3D, IMAX Enhanced, and HD radio. Not having Auro 3D is kind of a deal breaker for me.


Many years ago I had a bad reliability issue with a Denon A/V receiver and ended up getting rid of it, and that is one reason why I am thinking about sticking with Pioneer even though on paper the Denon is a little better of a A/V receiver.

I might just continue using my existing Pioneer Elite 7.1 setup for awhile longer before upgrading to 11.2 or 13.2. I really want Auro 3D and hopefully next year Pioneer will start offering that feature.

Then don't get it. I like the processing power of a good computer to what they put in an AVR. And the results speak for themselves.

Of course ARC has a smartphone version. Dirac could.

In a year with ARC I only tweaked a few bits when first setup. Never needed to again. (I wanted 4k, needed more HDMI and analog video)

And I'm not tweaking MCACC either. Set and forget.

I definitely won’t get it if it requires me to use a computer. While I love ARC and DIRAC when I do calibration for other people, I just don’t want that style for my own home.

Where did you read about the eARC Update for the 901 ?
Afaik the only unit that got the eArc update is the lx 502 !
I have an lx 801 and an lg oled, the audio delay is killing the perfect picture here.
Earc would solve that, and no you don’t need hdmi 2.1 for that.

The juli update doesn’t list this either.

Reading that the 801 is discontinued just destroyed any hope i had for an update to this.
