The list of equipment of the mini Sapundani LX_71 can be seen.

Pioneer uses the possibility of stroke control via HDMI with the new “mini Sapundani” like the SC-LX_71 and SC-LX_81; so titled because they the large over amp SC LX_90, nicknamed Susano (AUDIO 9/08), not only outwardly resemble.
The black, shiny, remembered body, the divided interior with precursors-deck and the lower deck with ICEpower switching power amplifiers fitted and that “air Studios monitor” logo on the front – with the reference to the fine-tuning and certification by the London air Studios – is amazingly similar to the concept of the LX_90. The in-house MCACC a measuring program allows not only an automatic adjustment of Acoustics to the architectural conditions; There’s also an extensive equipment to the hunting of standing waves and phase error of speakers. The SC LX_71 takes gladly used music from the local network to its Ethernet port and plays everything, what is not explicitly protected by DRM; also including lossless FLAC files. With access to the Internet, the music offer extended the PIO neer in addition to tens of thousands Web radio stations, which in the vTuner database are stored or even about “Neural Music Direct” Surround sound stream. iPod owners can insert their postage via data cable and USB receiver – and remotely control the music treasures stored not only convenient, but also still elegant Guide to the iPod’s own D/A converters past.
In addition, the LX_71 brings a technical novelty, big brother Susano had not to offer: PQLS. The “Precision Quartz Lock System” to improve the two-channel PCM playback via HDMI – fix exactly the HDMI clock problems. A matching Blu-ray player who understands PQLS, is the Pioneer BDP-LX_71 (AUDIO 9/08). Or the equivalent, but much schmuckere and available only in Europe BDP LX_08. As Chiseled from an exotic monoliths, the LX-08 fits perfectly into the receiver design; Yes, he even resembles a part of it.
Now so hastily receiver and player via HDMI wired two Set-Up menus “CEC” and “PQLS” enabled, and away go the controlled audio traffic. And indeed: the CD sound without the reassuring glow-in-two displays PQLS was still something FAB and limited in the heights, with the clock control suddenly opened a wider stage, echoed voices and Hi-hats longer, more details when the handset came. The PQLS variant amazingly resembled the analog output; yet she seemed almost a little bit more to reveal the music to give a touch more life.
The pioneer SC-LX_71 could decode and receive also the a-bit signals of a SACD via its four HDMI inputs. For a player is needed of course, which also digital outputs DSD over HDMI.
The force of the ICEpower amplifiers drive the LX_71 to brilliant heights, especially with HD sound. Then he awarded three-dimensional body such as strings and let the sheets just purr. Only as the Onkyo TX-NR_906 (AUDIO 12/08) appeared on the plan, which at the same time powerful and delicate art of music had to envy acknowledge the receiver. Together with his partners, but the pioneer is more than just a link in a chain.
