DTS:X™ Ready


DTS:X is the next-generation audio codec from DTS that leverages object-based audio to enable new immersive and interactive audio experiences. Since DTS:X can automatically adapt the audio to the existing channels and speaker system, no specific speaker layout is required. Experience an immersive soundscape with incredibly rich and life-like audio.
* DTS:X will be available with future firmware update.

 

Chromecast Built-in


The VSX-LX301 has Chromecast Built-in, the same technology behind Chromecast, so you can use your mobile device to cast your favorite music, radio, or podcasts to your speaker. You can control the audio from anywhere in the house using Cast-enabled apps running on your personal device—iPhone®, iPad®, Android™ phone and tablet, Mac® and Windows® laptop, and Chromebook. Discover Cast-enabled apps at g.co/cast/audioapps.
* Chromecast Built-in will be available with future firmware update.

MCACC® Auto Room Tuning


Create the optimum acoustic environment with Pioneer’s MCACC (Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration System), developed with the expertise of professional recording studios. With the custom microphone, the system automatically compensates for differences in speaker size, level and distance, and equalizes response.

 

Synchronized Sound with Phase Control®


As an innovative solution for the phase lag between the subwoofer and the main channel speakers caused by the network filter, Phase Control compensates the delayed bass to improve sound synchronization.

 

 

Reflex Optimizer


Reflex Optimizer layers MCACC for more accurate measurement when using enabled speakers. High directivity sound reflects off the ceiling, while low directivity sound directly reaches the ears. This difference causes a phase shift, making the sound feel uncomfortable. To solve this, the new technology optimizes the performance of your up-firing elevation speakers for your listening environment, by aligning the phase of direct and indirect sound, matching the basic tone, and optimizing the upward-oriented frequencies. The result is overall seamless sound with Dolby Atmos enabled speakers, allowing the ideal reproduction of three-dimensional surround sound.

Multi-room Audio Offers a Variety of Ways to Enjoy Music


The VSX-LX301 will support FireConnect™ Powered by Blackfire* with a future firmware update. FireConnect is a stable wireless protocol that streams audio from a compatible Pioneer AV Receiver to a compatible Pioneer wireless speaker**. Enjoy Bluetooth audio, front USB audio files and internet radio from the FireConnect compatible Pioneer AV receiver to an optional FireConnect compatible Pioneer wireless speaker(s)** located in another room(s).

* Multi-room Audio is realized by FireConnect technology. FireConnect is a technology of Blackfire Research Corp, USA. We cannot guarantee that the AV Receiver will support all devices incorporating FireConnect technology. Not all Fireconnect compatible devices work on all AV Receivers.
**Optional future 2016 Pioneer Wireless Speakers required.
