With this flagship AV receiver you will experience all your favourite films and music exactly as the creators intended. The SC-LX89 features only high-end components, each rigorously calibrated and professionally tuned by the legendary Air Studios, to bring studio quality sound right into your living room.

Especially for audiophiles, we equipped the SC-LX89 with a SABRE 32 bit Ultra DAC and a powerful Class D Amplifier. Together, they reproduce music with unsurpassed fidelity, up to 220 watts per output channel. Unique to this AV receiver is the asynchronous USB-DAC, which allows a direct USB connection for your Mac or PC, supporting Native DSD and 192KHz/32-bit audio content.

The cherry on the cake is the newest surround sound technology: Dolby Atmos.

The SC-LX89 allows you to place overhead speakers for a multi-layered, dynamic, and three-dimensional sound that is completely in sync with the screen view, providing total immersion with unprecedented sound localisation and movement.

The SC-LX89 is available in Black.
