SC-LX57
9.2 Channel Direct Energy HD AV Receiver with 9x HDMI, AirPlay, DLNA, 4K Upscaling and MHL for Android

Massive power meets great design.

Driven by powerful Class D amplification, the SC-XL57 produces a continuous 190 W output per channel, allowing you to enjoy your music with maximum impact. The SC-LX57 integrates an ESS Technology Inc. SABRE 32bit Ultra DAC, the industry’s benchmark for audio digital-to-analogue conversion, to reproduce music with unsurpassed fidelity. With an Audio Scaler on board even regular CD quality content can be upscaled up to 192 kHz/32 bit to create a “high-resolution” experience. The receiver plays back DSD files, high-resolution AIFF, Apple Lossless, WAV and FLAC files for which gapless playback is supported as well.

Enjoy playback in other rooms via HDZone, a Zone 2 HDMI out for routing either the same signal as the main zone or a separate source to a second zone via HDMI. On top of that you get a digital connection to connect the receiver with your iPod, iPhone, iPad or Android device (via MHL), and you can enjoy easy-to-operate worldwide internet radio (vTuner) and network streaming via DLNA or Apple AirPlay when you connect via LAN.

A built-in ECO Mode lets you save energy without compromising on sound and video performance. Compatible (free) smartphone/tablet apps include the advanced remote control app iControlAV2013.
