Features:

The Ultimate iPhone Experience--Now In Your Home Theater

  • "Made for iPhone" Certification and Sound Retriever Provides iPhone Users the Ultimate Plug-and-Play Integration
  • Get a truly plug-and-play iPhone experience with your home theater. Thanks to the SC-35's "Made for iPhone" certification, you can enjoy music with iTunes® album art, movies, downloaded TV shows from iTunes, photos, and more. An included USB/composite video cable makes connecting your iPhone to share your favorite media easy--and your iPhone charges automatically when connected. This included cable also works with most generations of iPod Classic, Nano, and iPod Touch.
  • Share your videos, and enjoy music with full album information and album art on your TV. Your iPhone device’s wireless and network features remain fully functional and music and movies will mute when you receive an incoming call. And you've got lots of control options--use the iPhone directly, or push a single button on the SC-35's front panel to switch control to the included preset remote and an intuitive, full-color GUI.
  • Plus, your iPhone device’s music will always sound its best thanks to Pioneer's exclusive Advanced Sound Retriever technology, which restores lost data in compressed music files. So even in a big room, you'll get much closer to the artist's original intent from you iPhone, iPad, iPod or other MP3 player. And Auto Level Control means a smooth, consistent listening experience with no jarring volume changes between your favorite songs and albums.
  • Pioneer's Free iPhone App Turns Your iPhone or iPod touch into a Powerful Control Center
    Pioneer's iControlAV (free download from Apple's App Store) gives you total control over your home theater sound. With controls for master and per-zone volume, room calibration, and more, you've got a simple but powerful way to adjust your home theater sound any way you like.
  • The iPhone and iPod Touch device’s accelerometer are used to control balance, bass and dialogue--no confusing sequence of remote buttons to remember, just tilt and maneuver your Apple portable device until the sound is right where you want it.

Where Maximum Fidelity Meets Connectivity

  • Access Your Portable Devices, Internet Radio, and More
    In addition to connections for all your home theater components, a front HDMI input lets you conveniently connect high-definition devices like an HD camcorder to view your videos in all their glory in your home theater. A front USB port lets you connect your digital camera or portable media player to display a slideshow of JPEG photos on your HDTV, or play MP3, WAV, or WMA music files with full ID3 tag and album art support. Elite receivers will display up to 32 album art thumbnails on your TV, and you can scroll through them with the included remote. And your options don't stop with your portable devices. When connected to your home network, the Pioneer SC-35 is your portal for thousands of Internet radio stations -- all just a few clicks of the remote away.
  • Full-Color On-Screen GUI and PC Web Browser Control
    There are more ways to control your Pioneer SC-35 than just your iPhone. There's a full-color on-screen GUI for use with the included preset remote, so you can make guided adjustments to your home theater sound. Not only that, but the SC-35 lets you connect a USB keyboard so you can rename stations for radio and Internet radio, network settings, and more. For further control, the SC-35 includes PC web browser control software, so you can control your home theater right from your PC or laptop.
  • Release Your Smartphone's Music with the AS-BT100 Bluetooth Adapter (sold separately)
    For wireless connectivity, add a Pioneer AS-BT100 Bluetooth adapter (sold separately) to release your music from your iPhone, iPad®, Blackberry®, or Android® smartphone as well as other Bluetooth-enabled sources like laptops. And the SC-35's Advanced Sound Retriever AIR technology restores critical audio data that is often removed from compressed audio formats, especially when transferred via Bluetooth.

How Pioneer's Technology Delivers the Ultimate Home Theater Experience

  • The Latest HDMI Technology Gets You Ready for 3-D
    All of Pioneer's latest receivers support the latest HDMI 1.4a specification, meaning that you're not just getting the most out of your existing movies and music, you're preparing for the next generation of 3-D video content with the SC-35. And with 6 HDMI inputs, including 1 on the front panel, plus 2 HDMI outputs, you've got more than enough connectivity options for the growing number of high-definition sources available today. And the SC-35's support for HDMI 1.4a's Audio Return Channel (ARC) means fewer cables needed for connecting to your home theater.
  • Pioneer’s Advanced Video Processing
    Pioneer has long been the leader in video processing and combining. The SC-35 benefits even further with Marvell's advanced Qdeo video processing, which lets you upscale your picture to digital 1080p/24fps from virtually any source, including analog.
  • ICEpower Class D Amplification and AIR Studios Certification
    The first and only THX Ultra2 Plus and Select 2 Plus-certified Class D multi-channel amplifiers, ICE-Power's direct energy amplifier design yields quick-response dynamic output that's incredibly stable during multi-channel performance, all while remaining energy-efficient and cooler-running
  • The SC-35 has also benefited from Pioneer’s collaboration with the famous AIR Studios in London, where it was evaluated and modified at a prototype level to meet the very strict standards set forth by studio engineers. The trained ears at AIR Studios know first-hand what goes into an artist’s craft and their objective is perfectly in-line with that of Pioneer: to accurately reproduce in the home theater what the artist originally created in the studio.
  • True-to-Life, High-Definition Audio with Dolby Pro Logic IIz and THX Select 2 Plus
    Of course all the latest Pioneer receivers support high-definition audio formats like Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD® Master Audio to give your Blu-ray Disc® movies a soundtrack that's true-to-life. But the SC-35 adds an extra dimension with support for Dolby Pro Logic IIz and THX Select 2 Plus certification for a richer, more immersive experience.

Near Studio-quality Sound with Advanced MCACC

  • Pioneer's exclusive Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration system (MCACC) provides a near studio-quality, multi-channel listening experience that customizes each of the SC-35’s 7.1 sound channels specifically to your listening environment.
  • Additionally, the Auto Level Control feature can equalize volume level differences between tracks playing from a portable audio device or commercials during television programming so the volume can be enjoyed at a consistent level--no more jarring "blare" when switching audio sources.
  • Where the SC-35 truly shines is with custom control options. Full custom feature-sets including 3-zone audio and video as well as partnerships with 3rd party controllers like Control4, Crestron and AMX ensure compatibility with the latest home automation technologies.
  • All of these technologies come together in the SC-35 to deliver an unprecedented level of control and sophistication for the serious home entertainment enthusiast.

Comments about Pioneer Elite Black 7.1 Channel AV Home Theater Receiver:

First let me say that I was skeptical about the ICEPower Amps which are Class D amplifiers. My first experience with a Class D amplifier (a few years ago) was not good. Bass and midrange were ok but the high end was suppressed (my first experience with Class D amplifiers).

However, based on my research and the favorable reviews for the SC-35, I decided to take the plunge. Wow, I am impressed. The initial set-up was straight forward and running the MCACC was easy. Being tech savy I did some tweaking after running the MCACC which resulted in further improvements in the sound quality.

My set-up is 7.1 utilizing the "Height" channels. My first test was with movies (which is 80% of my usage). The sound is crystal clear with great definition over the entire audio range. Bass is substantial with great punch. Midrange is clear and properly defined. Highs are crisp and defined (no smearing).

Now, to fully achieve the high performance output of this Receiver, you need good quality Speakers (I'm using MKs and Definitives).

As I said in the beginning, I was skeptical about the performance of the ICE Amps, however Pioneer has totally won me over. This receiver is one of the very best for value and performance. So, if you are in the market for an excellent AV Receiver, put this one on your list and at least give it a listen, you may be surprized by what you hear. This is an Audiofile Receiver.

Best application for the Receiver is Home Theater and multi-zone applications.
