New Pioneer Elite AV Receivers for 2012
Pioneer has expanded its 2012 Elite line-up of AV receivers with five new state-of-the-art models – two 7.2-channel models (SC-61 and SC-63), and three 9.2-channel models (SC-65, SC-67 and SC-68). Each receiver is designed to deliver clean and powerful audio output with high efficiency using Pioneer’s renowned Class D amplification technology. The new line is also enhanced with advanced network connectivity and features including Apple’s AirPlay, DLNA 1.5, Windows 7 compatibility, Internet radio, PC Setup control, Advanced MCACC auto-calibration, Marvell Qdeo video processing and Pioneer apps for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
Each new model is highly customizable and will allow users to create a full 5.1 system and use the remaining channels for additional zones, all controllable directly from the receiver and/or portable device running the iControlAV2012 app. The SC-61 ($1,299), SC-63 ($1,499) models will be available in late June. The SC-65 ($1,799), SC-67 ($2,199) and SC-68 ($2,499) will join them in late July. www.pioneerelectronics.ca
