The Pioneer SC-LX89 is a premium quality 9.2ch AV surround sound receiver that offers stunning quality sound and picture reproduction. Constructed using the highest quality materials and components the SC-LX89 will faithfully reproduce your favourite music and movies just as the creators intended. As well as offering supreme picture and sound performance the SC-LX89 also incorporates all the latest HD audio formats including the newest surround sound technology: Dolby Atmos, This allows you to place overhead speakers for a multi-layered, dynamic, and three-dimensional sound that is completely in sync with the screen view, providing total immersion with unprecedented sound localisation and movement.

As well as supporting Dolby Atmos the SC-LX89 (after a free update) will also cater for DTS:X, the latest surround sound formats for home theatre entertainment.
