Pioneer Elite 4K Ultra HD Receiver - VSX-LX101Pioneer Elite
The VSX-LX101 supports 4K in all its glory. 4:4:4 Color Space, HDR (High Dynamic Range) video, and HDCP 2.2 are all present and accounted for.
WiFi and Bluetooth also come bundled with the receiver. AirPlay, which allows you to wirelessly send music from your Apple device to the receiver, is included as is Google Cast. FireConnect, which is a new multi-room audio standard, is also provided with the 101. Currently few products support the new protocol so we’ll have to wait and see if it catches on.
On the internet music front, Pandora and TuneIn are available. Tidal is expected to be available with a future firmware update. The Pioneer LX101 can decode compressed and uncompressed audio files such as MP3, WMA, AAC, Apple Lossless, WAV, FLAC, AIFF, and DSD.
Dolby Atmos and DTS:X are the latest and greatest audio formats to grace home theaters. The LX101 decodes Atmos right out of the box. DTS:X will be available with (you guessed it) a firmware update which is expected to arrive this fall. The Pioneer VSX-LX101 adds what it calls a Reflex Optimizer to its calibration repertoire which is designed specifically for height speakers or Dolby Atmos modules.
