Pioneer AV Receivers 2013 - features explained (Israel)

  1. 1. Pioneer AV Receivers 2013 Features 1 123
  2. 2. The availabilities of the models differ depending on region. 2 123 Overview §§ Advanced Multi-Channel Stereophonic Philosophy §§ Audio Technologies §§ Video Technologies §§ Audio Formats & Licenses §§ Sophisticated Surround System §§ Connectivity §§ Network Features §§ Advanced Control §§ ECO Friendly Overview Applicable models displayed in icons: SC-LX87 SC-LX77 SC-LX57 SC-2023-K SC-1223-K VSX-1123-K VSX-923-K VSX-828-K VSX-823-K VSX-523-K VSX-323-K 87 77 57 2023 1223 1123 923 828 823 523 323
  3. 3. Advanced Multi-Channel Stereophonic Philosophy 3 123
  4. 4. With the introduction of the Direct Energy HD Amplifier, Pioneer brought groundbreaking performance with Digital class D amplifiers. With the newly adopted MOSFET, what we call Direct Power FET, a simple, high-power solution is provided to fully enjoy today’s AV entertainment. 4 123 Advanced Multi-Channel Stereophonic Philosophy 57 202387 122377
  5. 5. When amplifying multi-channel audio signals, receivers use a Low Pass Filter (LPF) to process low-frequency signals for subwoofer output. This causes“phase lag” — a delay of approximately 5 msec — of the low-frequency signals compared to the main channel signals. As a result, the delayed bass makes the sound lack synchronization. Pioneer’s Phase Control technology effectively eliminates phase lag and signi!cantly improves the multi-channel sound without any extra operation. 5 123 Direct Energy HD Amplifier 57 202387 122377
  6. 6. When amplifying multi-channel audio signals, receivers use a Low Pass Filter (LPF) to process low-frequency signals for subwoofer output. This causes“phase lag” — a delay of approximately 5 msec — of the low-frequency signals compared to the main channel signals. As a result, the delayed bass makes the sound lack synchronization. Pioneer’s Phase Control technology effectively eliminates phase lag and signi!cantly improves the multi-channel sound without any extra operation. 6 123 Direct Energy HD Amplifier 57 202387 122377
  7. 7. When amplifying multi-channel audio signals, receivers use a Low Pass Filter (LPF) to process low-frequency signals for subwoofer output. This causes“phase lag” — a delay of approximately 5 msec — of the low-frequency signals compared to the main channel signals. As a result, the delayed bass makes the sound lack synchronization. Pioneer’s Phase Control technology effectively eliminates phase lag and signi!cantly improves the multi-channel sound without any extra operation. 7 123 Direct Energy HD Amplifier 57 202387 122377
  8. 8. When amplifying multi-channel audio signals, receivers use a Low Pass Filter (LPF) to process low-frequency signals for subwoofer output. This causes“phase lag” — a delay of approximately 5 msec — of the low-frequency signals compared to the main channel signals. As a result, the delayed bass makes the sound lack synchronization. Pioneer’s Phase Control technology effectively eliminates phase lag and signi!cantly improves the multi-channel sound without any extra operation. 8 123 Direct Energy HD Amplifier 57 202387 122377
  9. 9. When amplifying multi-channel audio signals, receivers use a Low Pass Filter (LPF) to process low-frequency signals for subwoofer output. This causes“phase lag” — a delay of approximately 5 msec — of the low-frequency signals compared to the main channel signals. As a result, the delayed bass makes the sound lack synchronization. Pioneer’s Phase Control technology effectively eliminates phase lag and signi!cantly improves the multi-channel sound without any extra operation. 9 123 Direct Energy HD Amplifier 57 202387 122377
  10. 10. Pioneer’s latest Audio Scaler technology consists of Hi-bit32, Up-Sampling, and Digital Filter. The Hi-bit32 Audio Signal Processing improves resolution and density, while the Up-Sampling reduces noise. Then the Digital Filter creates soft, natural sound and improves transient response and pre-echo effect. The three features integrate to upscale all 2-channel audio content up to 192 kHz/32- bit playback—192 kHz/32-bit by auto, and selectable from 192/96/48 kHz frequency, 32/24-bit rate by manual setting—offering realistic reproduction of the content. The features can be controlled on the Sound Explorer screen of the iControlAV2013 app. 10 123 Audio Scaler 5787 77
  11. 11. The technology works to create undistorted sound, bringing out the best in the 32-bit DAC. The 32-bit DAC hardware alone does not reproduce better sound. Maximum performance is gained by applying the Hi-bit32 processing to expand signal resolution, creating more detailed, smooth sound, closer to the original analog signal. Hi-bit32 Audio Signal Processing also increases the sound pressure for a tactile listening experience, and the more channels you have, the more impressive it becomes. It is effective for multi-channel content on DVD/Blu-ray Disc as well as CD audio, and works with any disc player. 11 123 Hi-bit32 Audio Signal Processing 5787 77
  12. 12. The Up-Sampling feature of the Audio Scaler upgrades the sound with reduced noise, providing maximum quality audio playback of up to 192 kHz/32-bit. 12 123 Up-Sampling (192 kHz/32-bit) 5787 77
  13. 13. The world’s first digital filter for AV receivers let you enjoy two types of sound characters by switching the DAC —“Slow”for soft and warm, and“Sharp”for solid and tight sound. 13 123 Digital filter 5787 77
  14. 14. The power transformer designed for SC-LX87 features minimum leakage flux, ensuring low noise with increased S/N ratio. 14 123 Low Leakage Flux Power Transformer 87
  15. 15. Precision Distance is an innovative, world first feature for making millimetre- level manual adjustments to speaker distance. You can easily duplicate a skilled installer’s precise positioning with the help of a level gauge shown on the display. 15 123 Precision Distance 87
  16. 16. Pioneer has a proven track record of applying its audio expertise to the creation of multi-channel sound environments, collaborating with George Martin’s AIR Studios in England on numerous occasions. Our perfect application of the world- famous dubbing studio’s monitoring methods intensifies the emotion and excitement of what you see and hear. Established in 1969 in London, AIR Studios is now an acclaimed recording complex, favoured by many of the world’s most popular and renowned musical talents. The SC-LX87 and SC-LX77 have received the AIR Studios Monitor certification. 16 123 AIR Studios Sound Tuning 7787

  19. 19. When amplifying multi-channel audio signals, receivers use a Low Pass Filter (LPF) to process low-frequency signals for subwoofer output. This causes“phase lag”— a delay of approximately 5 msec — of the low- frequency signals compared to the main channel signals. As a result, the delayed bass makes the sound lack synchronization. Pioneer’s Phase Control technology effectively eliminates phase lag and signi!cantly improves the multi-channel sound without any extra operation. 19 123 Phase control The “Phase Control” Compensates for the Delay of Low-Frequency Sound Phase control ALL Source AV Receiver Phase Control Speakers
  20. 20. During Blu-ray Disc/CD playback, Auto Phase Control Plus makes real-time analysis of the phase difference between the LFE (low frequency effect) and the main signals, and automatically compensates the gap. Elimination of phase lag enhances strong bass and clear high-frequency sound — especially effective for audio content such as live performance and music video clips. 20 123 Auto Phase Control Plus Auto Phase Control Plus Effect of Phase Control Plus (data comparison) 1123 923 Original disc playback Delay setting: 0 msec Playback with Phase Control Plus Delay setting: 9 msec Superior sound provided by compensating the lag in the subwoofer channel on the disc 2023 122377 5787
  21. 21. Create the optimum acoustic environment with Pioneer’s MCACC (Multi- Channel Acoustic Calibration System), developed with the expertise of professional recording studios. The system — complete with custom microphone — automatically compensates for differences in speaker size, level and distance, and equalizes response. 21 123 Acoustic Calibration by MCACC Effect of Phase Control Plus (data comparison) 87 Calibration Before Calibration Speaker distance, sound pressure level, and frequency response are all uneven. Speaker sizes and number of speakers are automatically detected. The sound field is automatically measured using the supplied mic. SET-UP MIC SET-UP MIC Ater Calibration Speaker distance, sound pressure level, and frequency response are all equalized. Auto Phase Control Plus 823 5231223 82857 202377
  22. 22. The Advanced MCACC uses a 3D calibration method with even more precise measurements by including the time axis. The AV receivers also feature a speaker polarity check for detecting misconnected cables, and a reverb measurement display for showing before/after calibration results. The measured data can be saved on your PC via the AVNavigator. The system automatically measures crossover frequency — much easier than the previous manual setting. 22 123 Advanced MCACC MCACC Reverberation Characteristics Before Calibration After Calibration 1123 9232023 122377 5787
  23. 23. Acoustic standing waves occur when the sound waves from your speaker resonate with those reflected off the walls. Depending on the speaker placement, your listening position or the shape of the room, standing waves have a negative effect on the overall sound, especially in certain lower frequencies. Standing Wave Control effectively decreases resonance and prevents inaccurate EQ-setting calibration. 23 123 Standing Wave Control Standing Wave in a Typical Listening Room = Standing Waves 1123 9232023 122377 5787
  24. 24. Jitter causes clock timing error and distorts the D/A conversion timing. This is one of the biggest factors for sound degradation during digital transmission, such as decreased sound localization, and happens even with HDMI connection. On the Blu-ray Disc player, the audio clock goes through algebraic transformation based on the video pixel clock, then transferred. On the AV receiver, the audio reference clock is regenerated using PLL in the algebraic value which came with the video pixel clock. So the audio reference clock is influenced by both the HDMI receiving chip’s PLL performance and the video pixel clock, and can not avoid being regenerated with some jitter. Pioneer’s Precision Quartz Lock System (PQLS) was developed as a solution to this problem. PQLS processes D/A conversion using the high-precision crystal oscillator clock instead of the audio clock regenerated in the HDMI receiving chip, and is free from jitter created during HDMI transmission. 24 123 PQLS with HDMI Sound Degradation from Jitter Jitter effects on D/A conversion prevents accurate signal conversion 1123 9232023 122377 5787
  25. 25. The data from the Blu-ray Disc player is temporarily buffered in the AV receiver’s memory, then sequentially reproduced in sync with the high-precision crystal oscillator clock to prevent flaw. Additionally, the Blu-ray Disc player’s data transmission clock is controlled by signals from the AV receiver to prevent overflow or underflow in the buffer. Three types of PQLS are available depending on the connected Blu-ray Disc player. - PQLS 2ch Audio: For CD playback (LPCM). - PQLS Multi-Surround: For CD/DVD/BD sources, when the Blu-ray Disc player output is set to LPCM. - PQLS Bit-stream: For CD/DVD/BD sources, all the time. For PQLS to be effective, Control with HDMI needs to be on, and — only for PQLS Multi-Surround — HDMI audio output needs to be set to PCM. 25 123 PQLS with HDMI Conventional HDMI Transmission Jitterless Transmission (PQLS) Audio signal with jitterAudio signal with jitter Audio signal with jitter Blu-ray Disc Player Servo Circuit Servo Circuit HDMI IN/OUT HDMI IN/OUT HDMI IN/OUT HDMI IN/OUT DATA MEMORY Data transfer Data transfer Control Data transfer Audio Data Audio Clock Audio Data Audio Clock Control Data AV Decoder AV DecoderDAC DAC Clocking Crystal Blu-ray Disc Player AV Receiver AV Receiver Jitterless signal via PQLS 1123 9232023 122377 5787
  26. 26. Pioneer’s AV receivers feature the Advanced Sound Retriever, which restores the output of compressed audio — such as WMA, MPEG-4 AAC, and MP3 — to the level of CD sound. The Advanced Sound Retriever creates new signals to restore the minor details left out during the compression process. 26 123 Advanced Sound Retriever Advanced Sound Retriever Restoration Image ALL
  27. 27. 27 123 Advanced Sound Retriever Advanced Sound Retriever Compensation Effect ALL
  28. 28. Since the Advanced Sound Retriever is designed with an algorithm optimized to process 128 kbps signal, it did not work well with 8-15 kHz high frequencies in 64 kbps signal, which is the bit rate for quite a few internet stations. Auto Sound Retriever automatically determines the audio signal’s bit rate, and interpolates the data lost during compression. It is especially effective for improving the sound quality of low bit-rate content — an ideal feature when switching between internet radio stations with different bit-rates. Current Sound Retriever unable to play 8-15 kHz range for MP3’s 64 kbps Current Sound Retriever optimized for 128 kbps bit rate Upper limit for playback differs by frequency 28 123 Auto Sound Retriever Playback Upper Limit Frequency by Bit Rate 1123 9232023 122377 5787

  30. 30. By applying Pioneer’s Auto Sound Retriever feature to TV broadcast signals, it adjusts the effects according to the bit rate transferred via HDMI’s ARC (Audio Return Channel), letting you enjoy digital TV broadcast in high-definition sound via Pioneer AV receiver. 30 123 Auto Sound Retriever for ARC By applying Pioneer’s Auto Sound Retriever feature to TV broadcast signals, it adjusts the effects according to the bitrate transferred via HDMI’s ARC (Audio Return Channel), letting you enjoy digital TV broadcast in high-definition sound via Pioneer AV receiver. 1123 9232023 122377 5787

  34. 34. This technology works to create undistorted sound, bringing out the best in the 24-bit DAC. The 24-bit DAC hardware alone does not reproduce better sound. Maximum performance is gained by applying the Hi-bit24 Audio Signal Processing to expand signal resolution, creating more detailed, smooth sound, closer to the original analogue signal. Hi-bit24 also increases the sound pressure for a tactile listening experience, and the more channels you have, the more impressive it becomes. It is effective for multi-channel content on CD/DVD, PC files less than 24-bit and works with any disc player.
