Pioneer SC-LX81 is a powerful feature packed A/V amp
18 March 2009
Excerpt: I was deciding between this and the sister LX71, after spending £1800 on speakers I didn't want to let the system down. The list of credits on this A/V amp was amazing; THX Ultra 2 Plus certification, auto-calibration, dlna audio/video streaming playback and 190W/channel from B&O ICEpower amps to mention but a few. After completing the connections the basic setup was 2 button clicks, with so much packed in harnessing full control of the features seems an ongoing process.
Pros: Power, media streaming, iPod connection, auto - calibration
Cons: Slow using remote to navigate GUI, VERY basic GUI
