    Dolby Atmos Room Requirements:
    Using the Pioneer Elite Dolby Atmos Enabled Speakers you will need the following in order to use the Dolby Atmos-enabled capability of these speakers, the listening room ceiling should have horizontal flat hard surface (for audio reflection) and a height of 8' to 14'.

    Dolby Atmos Equipment Requirements:
    In addition to a Dolby Atmos compatible speaker set up, you must have a Dolby Atmos compatible receiver/processor and Dolby Atmos encoded content.

    DTS:X is the next-generation audio codec from DTS that leverages object-based audio to enable new immersive and interactive audio experiences. Since DTS:X can automatically adapt the audio to the existing channels and speaker system, no specific speaker layout is required. Experience an immersive soundscape with incredibly rich and life-like audio.

    Chromecast built-in*
    The SC-LX501 has Chromecast built-in, the same technology behind Chromecast, so you can use your mobile device to cast your favorite music, radio, or podcasts to the SC-LX501. You can control the audio from anywhere in the house using Cast-enabled apps running on your personal device-iPhone, iPad, Android phone and tablet, Mac and Windows laptop, and Chromebook. Discover Cast-enabled apps at
    * Chromecast built-in will be available with future firmware update.

    MCACC Auto Room Tuning
    Create the ideal acoustic environment with Pioneer's MCACC (Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration System), developed through years of working closely with an award-winning recording studio. With the custom microphone, the system automatically compensates for differences in speaker size, level and distance, and equalizes response.

    Synchronized Sound with Phase Control
    As an innovative solution for the phase lag between the subwoofer and the main channel speakers caused by the network filter, Phase Control compensates the delayed bass to improve sound synchronization.

    Multi-room Audio Offers a Variety of Ways to Enjoy Music
    The SC-LX501 will support FireConnect Powered by Blackfire* with a future firmware update. FireConnect is a stable wireless protocol that mirrors most audio sources connected to the AV receiver-from vinyl to streaming audio-on optional FireConnect compatible speakers** in other rooms.
    * Multi-room Audio is realized by FireConnect technology. FireConnect is a technology of Blackfire Research Corp, USA. We do not guarantee that the SC-LX901 will support all devices incorporating FireConnect.
    **FireConnect compatible speakers will be released at a later date.
