TheElite SC-97 9.2-Channel Network A/V ReceiverfromPioneeris a multi-zone home theater powerhouse that is equally adept at handling high-resolution audio and video sources. This model can produce up to 140W per channel at 8 ohms and supports dual subwoofer connections for enhanced low frequency sound. The SC-97 incorporates Pioneer's digital class D power amplifier technology and is designed to deliver dynamic sound from high-resolution audio formats like Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD. Integrated Advanced MCACC Pro room calibration allows you to tailor the sound of the receiver to your listening environment using the calibration microphone. It even incorporates high-quality ESS Technology 32-bit digital-to-analog converters for optimized sound quality. On-board Dolby Atmos and DTS:X support allows you to add optional height-channel speakers, which is designed to deliver immersive, object-oriented sound.

Built-in dual-band Wi-Fi and Ethernet connectivity allows you to access Internet radio sources like vTuner and Pandora. Bluetooth and Apple AirPlay are on-board, which allows you to wirelessly stream music from compatible audio sources such as smartphones and tablets. DLNA support is also available for streaming content from your other network-enabled, DLNA-compatible devices.

The Pioneer SC-97 is equipped with eight HDMI inputs and three HDMI outputs for interfacing high-resolution audio and video components like Blu-ray players and streaming devices. In addition to 1080p, 3D, and 4K pass-through, this model can upscale lower resolution video to near-4K quality when used with a compatible display. This model also has a front-panel USB port that supports high-resolution audio formats like FLAC and WAV. For enhanced system control, the free iControlAV5 app is available for download on iOS and Android devices. This app will allow you to control the receiver from your compatible smartphone and tablet.

Powerful Class D Amplification
Pioneer's Class D digital circuitry is designed to overcome the limitations of traditional Class AB amplifier designs, which suffer reduced power output as channels are added. Instead, Pioneer Class D is engineered to deliver full power across all nine channels simultaneously, for a total of 810W (8 ohms, 1 kHz @ 1.0% THD). With a direct signal path and no EMI filters, feedback loops, or current limiting, this amplifier can handle low-impedance speaker loads. Furthermore, the efficient amplifier design features efficient power management, which generates less heat and energy loss while consuming less power than traditional designs.
Dolby Atmos
The Elite SC-97 integrates Dolby's Atmos surround technology and is compatible with multiple speaker configurations, including support for external amplifiers. It works by adding height channels to create a three-dimensional space. Optimized room calibration through the built-in MCACC Pro feature, in conjunction with Atmos-enabled speakers, reproduces object-oriented sound for an immersive audio experience.
DTS:X-Ready
DTS:X is an object-based surround sound technology that includes height channels to deliver a fully-immersive listening experience to your living room. This feature may require a firmware update, please check with the manufacturer for availability.
Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration (MCACC Pro)
MCACC Pro calibrates your room's sound using a sound-collecting microphone to monitor the room's acoustic environment, and an equalizer to optimize and precision-tune each speaker to the room. Pioneer's Full-Band Phase Control technology is designed to eliminate phase lag to precisely control sound locations for optimized multi-channel sound reproduction. MCACC Pro also includes a dual independent subwoofer EQ. Tailoring left- and right-channel low-frequency response curves lets you achieve optimum subwoofer performance, creating powerful bass response and seamless integration with your main speaker system.
ESS Sabre DACs for High-Performance Audio
The Elite SC-97 is designed to deliver high-performance digital-to-analog signal conversion. Two Sabre Ultra DAC (ES9016S) from ESS Technology are on-board to achieve life-like sound, wide dynamic range, and minimal harmonic distortion.
Precision Playback in Multiple Formats
Supporting high-resolution digital file formats such as WAV (192 kHz/24-bit), FLAC, AIFF, and Apple Lossless lets listeners enjoy audiophile-quality sound. Apple Lossless reconstructs data from compressed data for an enhanced listening experience. MP3, AAC, WMA, WAV and FLAC music files can be streamed from a compatible PC, laptop, tablet, or smartphone. Gapless playback eliminates gaps between consecutive tracks intended to be played continuously, such as classical music or live recordings.
Ultra HD Pass-Through with HDCP 2.2
The Elite SC-97 supports transmission of 4K 60p (4:4:4/24-bit) video signals and High Dynamic Range (HDR) signals, along with HDCP 2.2 copyright protection standard. 4K Ultra HD pass-through is the recognized standard of ultra-high video resolution, boasting 3840 x 2160 (24 Hz/25 Hz/30 Hz) pixels or 4096 x 2160 (24 Hz) pixels.
Video Scaler with Super Resolution
Video scaler with Super Resolution allows you to up-scale any video source to near-4K Ultra HD resolution for improved picture quality and compatibility with 4K TVs.
Multi-Zone Command from a Single Source
The Elite SC-97 adds flexibility to the multi-room experience by delivering up to four different zones of content, capable of powering a 5.1 home theater in the main zone, stereo audio in Zones 2 and 3, and HD video content in the HDZone. All zones can enjoy different content at the same time. Pioneer's iControlAV5 Android/iOS application lets you control the entire experience.
Wireless Connectivity
Built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technologies allows you to wirelessly enjoy music. A Wi-Fi connection that supports dual-band 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz delivers high-fidelity, high-resolution transmission with fewer interruptions.
iControlAV5 App
Pioneer's free iControlAV5 can turn your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or select Android device into a powerful wireless remote that controls everything from volume and input selections to advanced features like EQ adjustments and Internet Radio. It even allows you to stream music stored on your phone through the Elite SC-97 using the "Push Player" feature.
Spotify Connect
Spotify Connect is a premium subscription-based service that lets you play and control Spotify on your devices. Choose music on one device and listen on another. At home, you can hit "Play" on your mobile device and hear high-fidelity sound through the Elite SC-97. You can also control the music from your mobile phone.
