Pioneer SC-LX90 review

 

An amp you've just got to listen to – it makes movies viscerally thrilling or intimate as needed.

Sensational speed, attack and drive ; easy to live with ; fine build

Very little ; it’s a shade more forward-sounding than some, but never enough to be a problem

A remarkably good foray into this price class for Pioneer: well worth a proper investigation

Pioneer SC-LX90 review

 

Pioneer's long-awaited Susano amp sets a new design benchmark

Stunning clarity and power ; Versatile, comprehensive connectivity ; Network streaming

Demanding to set up ; MCACC results need tweaking ; No 'net radio

A superb amp, well worth the 4 year wait

La Rolls des amplis HD !

 

Annoncé pour avril, l'ampli Pioneer Susano SC-LX90 fait déjà saliver. Le niveau d'équipement s'annonce exceptionnel.

Pioneer SC-LX901

 

Klokkeklar lyd kombineres med dynamikk og kraft i bøttevis. Men brukervennligheten trekker ned.

I dette kvalitetssjiktet er det en selvfølge at lydkvaliteten er god. Og Pioneer skuffer ikke. Det låter glimrende uansett film- eller musikkmateriale, og det er rikelig med kraft til å dundre løs i hjemmekinoen. Dette er en lydkvalitet kombinert med...

Pioneer SC-LX90 Susano

 

Med laserpresisjon kutter den ingen svinger. Dens superheltmuskler kan lage jordskjelv. Møt den råeste surroundforsterkeren vi har hørt – som forresten er ren og skjær stormannsgalskap.

Ytterst rask og distinkt ; Raffinement ; Gigantisk lydbilde

Savner kanskje ; litt ”varme”, middel­mådig autokalibrering

Pioneer SC-LX90 Susano er den råeste integrerte surroundforsterkeren vi hittil har hørt. Enten det er Blu-ray eller musikk i to eller flere kanaler som står på menyen, overvelder den. Lydgjengivelsen er superkjapp, distinkt og veloppløst. De som liker...

Pioneer SC-LX90 Susano

 

Precisionen är som skuren med laser. Superhjältemusklerna kan framkalla jordskalv. Möt den tyngsta hemmabioförstärkaren vi har hört – rena rama storhetsvansinnet!

Ytterst rapp och distinkt ; Finess ; Gigantisk ljudbild

Saknar kanske lite ”värme ; Medelmåttig auto­kalibrering

Rejäla doningar

 

Klockrent ljud och hinkvis med dynamik och kraft. Men användarvänligheten är inte lika bra.

Filmdialoger är kristallklara, ljudbilden är gigantisk och det är full kontroll över allt som händer. Helt enkelt ett sagolikt ljud.

Skärmmenyn är lite grötig, vi ogillar högtalarinstallationen och receivern är inte framtidssäker.
