MCACC Pro Audio Room Tuning
The pinnacle of Pioneer’s auto room tuning technology is here! MCACC Pro analyzes phase and group delay characteristics to precisely control phase differences between speakers. It corrects phase differences in all ranges and all channels-from phase difference in original material to sound emitted from the speakers, MCACC is on it. (Required microphone included)
Synchronized Phase Control
Phase lag is now a thing of the past. With the SCLX501, Phase Control compensates the delayed bass to improve sound synchronization.
Optimize sound performance of up-firing elevation speakers by aligning the phase direct and indirect sound to match the basic tone and optimize upward-oriented frequencies. The result is an overall seamless sound with Dolby enabled speakers that allow ideal reproduction of three dimensional surround sound.
Multi-Room Audio Variety
The SCLX501 supports FireConnect™ powered by Blackfire through a future firmware update. FireConnect™ is a stable wireless protocol that mirrors most audio sources connected to the AV receiver-from vinyl to streaming audio-on optional FireConnect compatible speakers in other rooms.
