  • Excerpt: Sometimes, if money isn’t an issue, what you want with your AV receiver is simple authority. And it would be hard to find a more authoritative member of the breed than the Pioneer SC-LX86. This is a full nine-channel unit, fitted with Class D amplifiers. Pioneer specifies them — only for 1kHz rather than the more usual 20 to 20,000Hz — at 140W per channel, into eight ohms, at 0.08% THD.

  • Excerpt: Das neue Topmodell von Pioneer bietet nicht nur einen USB-Audio-Anschluss. Was der SC-LX86 noch zu leisten imstande ist, zeigt der Test.
  • Pros: Bestes Einmesssystem, Integrierter USB-2.0-DAC, Installationsprogramm/App, Klingt warm und vollmundig, Reich an Klangfarben, Sehr kraftvoll auch an niedrigen Impedanzen
