Pioneer has succeeded in adding extra magic to the latest receiver from its award-winning series

Punchy, detailed sound with awesome control ; Packed with features

Seven channel amp only ; We preferred the gloss black

Pioneer SC-LX83 review


Best-receiver £1500+, Awards 2010. A hugely competent multichannel receiver that has the spec and performance to match its price

Extensive spec, hefty build ; brilliantly fervent and refined sound from any source

Unnecessarily fiddly remote

Best-receiver £1500+, Awards 2010. Confident, accomplished and endlessly enjoyable to listen to, the SC-LX83 is the one to beat

Consumer review by: ashpix (

Great unit. Beware of a potential fault


I bought two of these units. I believe the original price was up to $3000. I got two for $1300 each. Excellent quality of sound And easy to operate. Excellent setup procedure with supplied mic. Plug in a keyboard when modifying menu. Internet radio is...

Great sound. Good price, easy use. Feature packed.

Circuit fault may cause device to fail. Fix it before warranty expires.
