Pioneer Elite 9.2 Channel Networked Class D Black AV Receiver - SC77

Key Features:

  • Feel the Immersion.
    For those who take their home entertainment seriously, we introduce the Elite SC-77 AV Receiver, featuring Class D3 amplifiers and delivering incredible fidelity, effortless connectivity, advanced multi-zone features and abundant power. It’s the home theater experience you’ve been waiting for.
  • Call it Audio Muscle — Class D3 Amplification
    Rated at 140 Watts per channel (8 Ohms, 1kHz, 0.08% 2 ch driven THD), the SC-77 is one of the most powerful multi-channel AV receiver we’ve ever built. While lesser amplifiers’ output diminishes as channels are added, the SC-77 has the power to drive multiple channels simultaneously with no significant drop in per-channel output. This ensures that you’ll enjoy the full impact and dynamic range of high-resolution multi-channel audio as never before. Plus, the power consumption of the Digital Class D3 Amplifier is well below that of conventional Class AB amplifiers, helping you to save energy, too.
  • The Art of Sound Mastery
    The SC-77 is THX® Ultra2 Plus Certified, offering startling surround sound in rooms up to 3,000 cubic feet in size with a 12 foot or greater viewing distance from the screen. The SC-77 also supports high-definition audio formats like Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD® Master Audio, as well as DTS® Neo:X surround, providing a 3-D surround experience for up to 11.2 channels. What’s more, the SC-77 was certified at legendary AIR Studios in London. Renowned for their exceptional work on motion picture soundtracks, as well as first-rate digital music recordings for big name acts, AIR Studios knows what goes into an artist’s craft. And their objective is our objective: Faithfully reproduce in the home theater what the artist originally created in the studio.
  • Playback Savvy
    The SC-77 supports the most popular high-resolution digital file formats, such as AIFF, WAV, FLAC and Apple Lossless, so audio enthusiasts can hear to their favorite music as it was originally intended. Apple Lossless enables the exact data to be reconstructed from the compressed data, so there’s no discernible loss in audio quality. Stream your MP3, AAC, WMA, WAV and FLAC music files from your compatible PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone. Plus, Gapless Playback eliminates sound gaps between consecutive tracks that were meant to be played continuously, such as with classical music or live recordings.
  • HDMI Zone 4 Output
    The SC-77 takes the multi-room experience to a whole new level with the ability to deliver up to four different zones of content. It’s capable of powering a 5.1 Home Theater in the main zone, stereo audio in Zones 2 & 3, and delivering HD video content in Zone 4 via HDMI®. All zones can enjoy different content at the same time. Control the entire experience with our new iControlAV2013 Android/IOS application.
  • 4K Pass-Through
    4K Ultra HD Pass-through is the next-generation standard of ultra-high video resolution, boasting 3,840 x 2,160 (24 Hz/25 Hz/30 Hz) pixels or 4,096 x 2,160 (24 Hz) pixels. That’s four times the current HD standard! All of our 2013 receivers can pass through 4K video signals to any compatible display, offering the highest quality image available.
  • Go Big with Qdeo® Video Processing
    Enjoy an exceptional, virtually noise-free picture regardless of the source. With Qdeo video processing technology by Marvell, you can up-scale any video source to 4K Ultra HD resolution for improved picture quality and compatibility with next generation TVs. Your Blu-ray Discs and DVDs will look more detailed and cinematic than ever before.
  • ESS-DAC Sabre32 bit for All-channel
    All channels of the SC-77 employ ESS-DAC SABRE32 technology, the world’s highest performance 32-bit audio DAC solution, delivering spectacular sound with a minimum of harmonic distortion.
  • MHL® 2.0 for AndroidTM
    The SC-77 is MHL (Mobile High-Definition Link) compatible, letting you connect an Android device and access your mobile audio and video content fast. MHL 2.0 adds support for 3D content, 1080p, and faster cell phone charging. Plus, high-definition video can be displayed on your HDTV with multi-channel sound while your device is charging.
  • Unleash Your Music with AirPlay®
    In addition to being DLNA® 1.5 and Windows® 8 certified, the SC-77 features AirPlay. AirPlay lets you wirelessly stream iTunes music from your PC, Mac, iPhone®, iPad® or iPod® touch through your home theater system at the touch of a button. AirPlay also lets you view song information, including title, artist, track time, as well as the album art on a connected display. And because it supports network audio sources in other zones, you can even send music to another room.
  • Windows® 8 Certified
    Windows 8 Play To feature makes it easy to stream your favorite music stored on your PC to our new line of networked AV Receivers. Don't limit your media experience to your laptop speakers. With the Windows 8 Play To feature and Pioneer’s new networked Receivers you can enjoy your media library on the biggest speakers in the house.
  • Internet Radio Puts the World at Your Fingertips
    Featuring vTuner®, the SC-77 give you a wealth entertainment options. Not only can you enjoy thousands of Internet radio stations around the world, you can also access Pandora® complete with on-screen album art and music information.
  • Gapless Playback
    Gapless playback, as the name suggests, eliminates sound gaps between consecutive tracks that were meant to be played continuously, such as with classical music, concept albums or live recordings.
  • PQLS Bit-stream
    This special jitter reduction technology helps to better reproduce realistic sound by utilizing the master audio clock in the AV Receiver for playback instead of the video clock in a compatible BD player.
  • Immersion Perfection with Full Band Phase Control
    This unique feature helps to eliminate phase disruptions and better synchronize the output between multiple speakers for a stunning surround sound experience.
  • On Screen Display
    To help you know the status of the receiver when it is not readily visible, On Screen Display lists basic information, such as volume, input, and surround mode, in a box that is superimposed over the picture.
    MCACC (Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration) is an automatic sound field adjustment system.. Using a microphone to monitor the sound environment and an equalizer to optimize the parameters, the system enables you to precision-tune the sound to the room. The result sounds like a professional recording engineer has fine-tuned your home theater system.
  • Control apps
    Using Pioneer’s free iControlAV2013, you can turn your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Android device into a powerful wireless remote control for the SC-77. The App incorporates everything from basic volume and input selections to advanced features like EQ adjustments and Internet Radio control. You can even stream music stored on your phone through the SC-77 using the new “Push Player” feature. The Elite SC-77 AV Receiver takes home entertainment to another level. Offering ample power and easy connectivity, as well as advanced multi-zone features, the SC-77 delivers a level of fidelity and the kind of immersive experience you’ve only dreamed of.
