Supports Dolby Atmos and DTS:X Playback
Object-based soundtracks allow independently mixed sound to play through any speaker in your system. Effects move all around as they do in real life, so you experience 5.2.2-channel Dolby Atmos or DTS:X formats as the director intended. DTS Neural:X is designed to identify spatial effects in multichannel soundtracks and upmix them for 3D playback, while DTS:X offers independent dialogue volume control for movies. Dolby Surround is also included to upmix legacy multichannel formats for playback in a Dolby Atmos-enabled environment.
Dolby Surround Upmixing
The Pioneer Elite VSX-LX103can upmix other audio codecs like DTS using Dolby Surround for 3D surround sound.
MCACC Audio Calibration
Tailor the audio to your room’s acoustics with the MCACC (Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration) system. With the included microphone, the system automatically compensates for differences in speaker size, level, and distance, and equalizes response.
Synchronized Sound with Phase Control
A solution for the phase lag between the subwoofer and main speakers caused by the bass management filter, Phase Control compensates for the delayed bass to enhance sound synchronization.
The Reflex Optimizer, which uses Phase Control technology, adjusts the shift between Atmos-enabled speaker sound and direct speaker sound and helps augment the localization of the sound image by aligning the frequencies with those of the floor speakers in the Pioneer Elite VSX-LX103.
FlareConnect Multi-Room Audio
FlareConnect shares audio from network and external audio input sources between compatible components. Enjoy multi-room playback of records, CDs, network music services, and more with supported components and speaker systems. Music selection, speaker grouping, and playback management across the home are built into the Pioneer Remote app, which is available on the App Store and Google Play for compatible devices.
DTS Play-Fi Wireless Multi-Room Audio
DTS Play-Fi is a wireless protocol that is designed to work with any audio app on mobile devices and computers. Stream whatever’s playing to the receiver, even different sources to different components at the same time.
