7.2-channel receiver with 7x170 watts, full-range streaming, Dolby Atmos and dts:X, 4K Ultra HD, video scaler, 6 HDMI ports, HDCP 2.2, high resolution audio playback, dual-band WiFi & Bluetooth

Delivering 170W per channel this AVR offers Dolby Atmos and DTS:X Playback (using a 5.2.2-channel layout) as well as an ingenious new feature dubbed Reflex Optimiser. This is designed to eliminate and overcome the phase-lag issues that many Dolby Atmos elevation speakers can suffer from, giving enhanced clarity in the mid and high frequency bands.

On the video front, the VSX-LX302 supports 4K/60p/4:4:4/24-bit video signal transmission (with HDCP 2.2 technology) on six rear HDMI inputs and twin HDMI outputs. Naturally, there’s full 4K Ultra HD and HDR compatibility (HDR 10, Dolby Vision and the BT.2020 standard).

Like its stablemates, the Bluetooth and Wi-Fi-enabled (5 GHz/2.4GHz Dual-band) VSX-LX302's talents also encompass music as well as movies, with onboard support for a host of free and subscription music services (TuneIn, Spotify, TIDAL and Deezer). For an even greater range of music options, owners can take advantage of the Chromecast built-in facility. This allows you to stream your favourite music from your smartphone, tablet or laptop right to your speakers.

Control playback anywhere in the house using Chromecast-enabled apps on your iPhone, iPad, Android phones, tablets, Chromebook, and the Chrome browser on Mac, Windows, and Linux PCs. Google Home integration is also available to control playback of your online music streams.

Naturally, there’s full support for Hi-Res audio including DSD 2.8MHz/5.6MHz and even Dolby TrueHD content (up to 192 kHz/24-bit) via the USB input. The task of decoding digital content falls to a high-grade DAC (AK4438) produced by AKM.

For vinyl fans there’s a built-in phono stage (moving magnet) plus AM/FM radio while an optional USB dongle - for DAB radio reception - will be launched later summer 2017. With Airplay, Bluetooth connectivity, DTS Play-Fi compatibility, FireConnect wireless audio distribution (to optional compatible speakers) and Pioneer’s excellent MCACC auto set-up system on board, the VSX-LX302 is, by any standard, a breathtakingly well-equipped AVR.

This Home Cinema amplifier is also ideal for custom installation featuring a detachable IEC mains cable, also adding 2 x 12volt triggers, RS-232 port and IR in/out plus Control 4 compatibility is on it's way.
