With the Class D3 (Direct Energy High fidelity class D) Amplifier, the SC-LX701 is ready to meet the needs of the latest HD content. With our MOSFET, the Direct Power FET, this simple, high powered solution is provided to fully meet today’s AV entertainment standards.
This AV Receiver features Dolby Atmos, the latest audio platform for home theatre entertainment. Dolby Atmos offers seamless surround sound movement in a three-dimensional space with a sense of height created by the overhead speakers. It will fill your room with astonishing clarity, richness, detail, and depth.
The feature lets you take advantage of the highest-quality video source for viewing on a 4K TV. With support for HDCP 2.2, you can enjoy premium content such as 4K videos with digital copy protection on a compatible display. What’s more, the SC-LX701 is ready for the HDR (High Dynamic Range) and BT.2020 next generation video standards.
* Supports up to 4K/60p/4:4:4/24-bit with HDCP 2.2 on HDMI IN (1/2/3/4/5) and HDMI OUT (MAIN/SUB).
The SC-LX701 adopts a compact integrated IC with space merit. The directly coupled IC reduces signal loss and provides precise signal transmission.
The SC-LX701 will support FireConnect™ Powered by Blackfire* with a future firmware update. FireConnect is a stable wireless protocol that mirrors most audio source connected to the AV receiver—from vinyl to streaming audio—on optional FireConnect compatible speakers** in other rooms.
The simple form of the Direct Power FET has the advantage of improved thermal characteristics. In addition to the upper-side heat dissipation from the heat sink, the circuit board’s heat radiation feature is also utilized for downward heat dissipation, providing efficient cooling for a superior performance.
