Default Pioneer Introduces Two New Class D3 7.2 Receivers

Pioneer angling to power the whole home with multi-zone network feature sets.


Pioneer as just introduced two new receivers, the SC-71 and SC-72. These models are positioned as home theater-centric, but with one of the more affordable Class D3 amplifier cores. Both amplifiers offer 7.2 configurations, 4K UHD upscaling, 3D support, multi-zone configurations, and control via iOS and Android devices. Playback capabilities include MHL, Airplay, DLNA connectivity as well as built-in Pandora and vTuner playback.

The 7.2 SC-71 is priced at $1,100 and offers 120 Watts per channel. The 7.2 SC-72 is priced at $1,400 and offers 130 Watts per channel.

From Pioneer, "First introduced in a $7,000 Elite AV receiver, Pioneer’s ultra high performance Class D3 amplifier technology is now integrated in both SC-71 and SC-72 models. Class D3 is engineered to operate at extremely high output levels with virtually no distortion and no loss in performance, even when all channels are simultaneously driven at full volume, making the SC line of receivers one of the most efficient and most powerful amplifiers on the market. The amp technology delivers the true audio potential of high-resolution audio content as well as other high-definition uncompressed sources such as Blu-ray Disc™ titles."

The SC-72 offers four zones of output with full 2.1 support for Zone 2. The SC-72 also "utilizes an aluminum panel and insulated dual chassis to reduce noise and improve audio quality output."

Both new models are expected in June.
