Pioneer SC-LX88 review


A staggeringly powerful and entertaining amp that's unrivalled at this price

Stunning detail and clarity Powerful and precise Wide soundfield Build Supports Atmos

Speaker terminals for Atmos speakers are not labelled clearly

That apart, we can’t stop praising the SC-LX88. It strikes a mature balance between subtlety and power, and offers a wealth of features that blow away the competition. It has a captivating sound that will keep you entertained for hours.

Pioneer SC-LX88 review


Pioneer's new flagship AVR comes to the HCC test bench fresh from its Dolby Atmos firmware upgrade, bristling with features that will have both music and movie fans salivating. It's a lavishly-engineered top-flight powerhouse that deserves an audition...

Fast and detailed sound; powerful; spectacular feature set; great control app; easy to setup and use; nice USB DAC

Lacks the 11-channel Atmos processing of some rivals; limited bass management options
