Pioneer SC-LX90 review


An amp you've just got to listen to – it makes movies viscerally thrilling or intimate as needed.

Sensational speed, attack and drive ; easy to live with ; fine build

Very little ; it’s a shade more forward-sounding than some, but never enough to be a problem

A remarkably good foray into this price class for Pioneer: well worth a proper investigation

Demanding to set up ; MCACC results need tweaking ; No 'net radio

A superb amp, well worth the 4 year wait
