Singapore – Pioneer Electronics AsiaCentre has announced their latest high-end range of AV receivers – the SC-LX83, the SC-LX73 and the VSX-LX53.
All systems sport a tactile hairline black aluminum front panel and subtle blue LED lighting for the display, to the rigid construction and use of high-end components.
The SC-LX83 and SC-LX73 feature Direct Energy HD Amplifier design – built on ICEpower analogue Class D technology, while the VSX-LX53 is built around the Advanced Direct Energy amplifiers.
The Precision Quartz Lock System (PQLS) used in combination with a compatible Pioneer Blu-ray Disc player eliminates audio distortion caused by timing errors, resulting in playback with dynamic sound quality.

It operates in the same way as a professional sound stage, enabling user to automatically adjust speaker set-ups and fine-tune the system to the unique dynamics of the room for an outstanding performance.
