The VSX-LX105


Indulge yourself with a 7.2-channel AV receiver, featuring the ability for a 5.2.2 configuration: With 5 traditional speaker channels, two specifically for height or surround with Dolby Atmos® or DTS:X, and 2 subwoofer outputs to take advantage of all the low tones. Or you can experience similar height-oriented sounds with Dolby Atmos Height Virtualizer and DTS:X built into the VSX-LX105. Then, you may want to use the 7.2-channels to power a second zone with a dedicated DAC. You can further personalize your experience with presets, 2HDMI outputs and voice control with Alexa or Hey Google.

Superior imagery is also yours with Ultra HD, HDR10+, HLG, and Dolby Vision pass through. Plus, the VSX-LX105 supports HDMI 2.1 for 8K, VRR, ALLM, and QFT pass-through for high resolution picture and next-generation gaming. Finally, listening to music couldn’t be easier with a number of streaming services in the VSX-LX105, available simply via Bluetooth®, or with the ability to connect your entire music library through Roon.

All Encompassing Sound

Reproduce object-oriented sound with DTS:X and the smooth, curving or realistic, three-dimensional, overhead movements of Dolby Atmos. Or if you don’t have surrounds or height speakers, Dolby Atmos Height Virtualizer and DTS:X Virtual will create virtual height effects from traditional speaker layouts to simulate upfiring speakers. With or without upfiring speakers, E-ARC (Enhanced Audio Return Channel) simplifies connectivity and supports the latest high-bitrate audio formats.

Discrete 2 Zone Switching

Great news for anyone sharing a home! You can use your channels as you please and setup two distinct entertainment zones. If you don’t have or don’t want to use the 2 channels for height speakers, you can redirect them to create a secondary zone in another room. The primary zone will run with 8K60 resolution and the secondary zone will produce 4K120 resolution with the secondary HDMI output.

Auto Room Tuning

Pioneer’s Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration System (MCACC) automatically adjusts sound according to your listening area and speakers by suppressing the standing waves that occur between walls or ceiling and the floor. Additionally, Auto Phase Control Plus makes real-time analysis of the phase difference and automatically compensates for the gap, resulting in strong bass and clear high-frequency sound.
