    Key Features

    IMAX Enhanced Mode
    Experience powerful 4K HDR images and sound with IMAX digitally remastered content, just as the filmmaker intended. Pioneer Elite’s IMAX Enhanced Mode is meticulously optimized to play digitally remastered content to deliver the best viewing and listening experience on Earth.

    Super Immersive Viewing
    HDMI® 2.1 supports a range of video resolutions including 8K60, 4K120 and Dynamic HDR. Combine that with 60Hz refresh rates for smooth and sharp playback, even for high-speed action. And with discrete 2-zone switching you can setup in two rooms, so you and the kids don’t have to agree on what to watch.

    100 Watts Per Channel
    With 100 Watts per channel (8 ohms, 20 Hz-20 kHz, THD 0.08 %, 2ch Driven FTC) the VSX-LX305 has enough power to support 9.2 channels, so you can have the full home theater setup.

    All Encompassing Sound
    With or without upfiring speakers, E-ARC (Enhanced Audio Return Channel) simplifies connectivity and supports the latest high-bitrate audio formats including Dolby Atmos®, DTS-HD Master Audio™, DTS:X® and Dolby® TrueHD. Say hello to lifelike, object-oriented sound in smooth, curving movements or realistic overhead height effects.

    Pristine Listening, Any Room
    State-of-the-art Dirac Live room correction technology takes the room out of the equation and unlocks your loudspeakers’ full potential—no upgrade required. It automatically calibrates sound to the room using either a smartphone + the included wired mic or the Dirac Live PC/MacOS app + a 3rd party USB mic (not included). You’ll get a more accurate measurement of your surround sound positioning and more precise and balanced sound overall.

    Auto Room Tuning
    Pioneer’s Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration System (MCACC) automatically adjusts sound according to your listening area and speakers by suppressing the standing waves that occur between walls or ceiling and the floor. Additionally, Auto Phase Control Plus makes real-time analysis of the phase difference and automatically compensates for the gap, resulting in strong bass and clear high-frequency sound.

    Bi-Directional Bluetooth
    Now, Bluetooth connectivity is even better with bi-directional Bluetooth. Stream from your device to the AVR using SBC or AAC codecs, or transmit audio playing through the AVR to compatible wireless headphones. This is great news if you want to stream from your phone or for the gamer in your life…or maybe for the person who doesn’t want to hear what their gamer is playing.

    Roon Tested
    Roon is capable of playing your entire music library, and Roon Tested devices like the VSX-LX305 are profiled by the Roon team to ensure simple setup and effortless daily use. You can have be confident that you’ll enjoy the best musical experience.

Additionally, this AVR is compatible with Works with Sonos, AirPlay 2 and DTS Play-Fi®.
