Pioneer SC-LX81 review

 

If you want a powerful but refined multichannel receiver to go with Pioneer's new BDP-LX71A Blu-ray player, the SC-LX81 is a superb choice

Nice styling ; superb tonal and surround integration creates a brilliantly balanced performance ; great detail and dynamics

Lacks the depth and detail of class leader

It’s big, beautiful and brilliantly balanced, but the Pioneer no longer sits at the very top of the pile

Pioneer SC-LX81 review

 

Pioneer's SC-LX81 is a direct descendant of the ground-breaking Susano SC-LX90

Class-leading sound ; Brilliant features ; Easy to use ; Looks fabulous

Price rises expected from April

A great AV receiver with plenty of features to play with and sound quality to die for, but with price rises expected in the near future we reckon you should get out there and get it while its cheap-ish

Excellent

 

Excellence in A/V, ample power output, first class design and build quality. Cosmetically brilliant with reliable consistent performance. Great value for money.

Sound quality is excellent, looks fantastic.

Volume on remote is a bit sensitive, and speaker connections do not support banana type plugs (has to be bare wire into connectors). that's all - nothing much.

PIONEER SCLX81 AMPLIFIER

 

Fantastic sound, remarkably clear, tremendous punch. Previous reciever was the Pioneer VSX-AX5i and well known movies now have a new clarity, atmosphere, and thunder to them.

Blue led in ON/OFF button is too bright
