Pioneer® Elite SC-97 9.2-Channel Class D3 Network AV Receiver with Dolby ATMOS®

The Elite SC-97 AV receiver raises the curtain on a new world of sound, promising to change the way you experience movies and music with as little as one listen. This receiver delivers the latest features and technology you expect from Pioneer to your home theater with the enhanced realism of Dolby Atmos driven by authoritative Class D3 amplification - the most powerful in its class. With advanced multi-zone features and effortless connectivity, the Elite SC-97 AV offers advanced Super Resolution video scaling with 4K Ultra HD pass-through with HDCP 2.2, a USB-DAC for jitter-free digital networked audio streaming, and the immersive new object-based DTS:X surround-sound format.

Important Note - A recently-discovered conflict between Pioneer and Araknis prohibits Pioneer from receiving a dynamic IP from Araknis routers. While we work with Pioneer to determine a root cause, the current solution is to set the static IP address from the main GUI of Pioneer devices (receivers and Blu-ray players), using the provided Pioneer remote.
Dolby Atmos Equipment & Room Requirements - To use Dolby Atmos technology, the listening room ceiling should have a horizontal flat hard surface (for audio reflection) and a height of 8’ to 14’. Additionally, you must have an Atmos-compatible speaker arrangement as well as Dolby Atmos-encoded content. Learn More >>

Dolby Atmos Expands the Experience

The Elite PE-SC-97 integrates Dolby’s groundbreaking surround technology and is compatible with 7.2.4ch*, 9.2.2ch*, 7.2.2ch and 5.2.4ch configurations for Dolby Atmos. It works by adding height to the sonic landscape, creating a true 3D, multi-dimensional space that puts you directly inside the experience. Optimized room calibration through the built-in MCACC Pro feature, in conjunction with Atmos-enabled speakers like the Elite Home Theater System or dedicated ceiling-mounted speakers, reproduces sound in smooth, curving, and realistic three-dimensional movement overhead by top-firing Atmos drivers. Dolby Atmos brings new life to traditional soundtracks and music, putting sounds into motion to deliver the full impact of the performance. *External amplifier required.

Powerful Class D3 Amplification

Extreme power with extreme efficiency are hallmarks of the Elite PE-SC-97, thanks to Class D3 (Direct Energy HD) amplifiers that deliver power in a cool running, lightweight package—generating less heat and energy loss than traditional Class AB designs, while consuming a fraction of the power and with greater reliability. Pioneer’s Class D3 delivers full power across all nine channels simultaneously for a total of 810 watts (8 ohms, 1 kHz @ 1.0% THD). With a direct signal path and no EMI filters, feedback loops or current limiting, these amps can handle low-impedance speaker loads that challenge lesser receivers.

Ready for Object-Based Audio with DTS:X

Experience immersive, interactive 3D realism like never before. The next-generation surround sound format, available as a no-cost firmware update, creates an amazing three-dimensional sound field that reproduces the movement of sound in space. It automatically adapts the signal to existing channels and speakers and requires no specific speaker layout.

ESS SABRE32 DACs for High-Performance Audio

The Elite PE-SC-97 delivers unmatched digital-to-analog signal conversion. Two SABRE32 Ultra DAC (ES9016S) units from ESS Technology—recognized as among the best in the industry—are critical to achieving purity of sound, wide dynamic range and minimal harmonic distortion that let the high-power Class D3 amps perform to their fullest.

A Serious Stamp of Approval

The Elite PE-SC-97 has been certified at London’s legendary AIR Studios, whose work is acknowledged worldwide for award-winning motion picture soundtracks and digital recordings. Like Pioneer, AIR Studios respects the artist’s intention and believes that faithfully reproducing what was originally created in the studio is the critical objective of the finest home theater system.

Compatible with iControlAV5 Remote App*

With Pioneer's free app, you can use your iPod touch, iPhone or iPad as a remote to control basic functions. The app is also compatible with Android. Enjoy smooth control from your device, with support for 8 languages. It is freely available from the App Store or via Google Play. *Device needs to be connected to a home LAN network in a wireless LAN environment.

Custom Installation

For advanced home theater control, Pioneer Elite receivers are compatible with the most popular custom control companies, and offers custom installation features including full two-way RS-232c control with the ability to receive metadata from the network and devices such as the iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch.
