Product Description

It may be called a receiver, but really, it's a giver. It embraces your every component without prejudice - DVD player, VCR, speakers, television, iPod® player, video game console, XM® and SIRIUS® satellite radio - and harmony results, instantaneously. The results are yours to see, hear and appreciate. You won't just be entertained - you'll be transported, your senses treated to stimuli they haven't experienced before. Control all this power at your command, often with just a single push of a button. And if this isn't impressive enough, watch in awe as Pioneer's Elite® receivers calibrate themselves to their environment automatically with Advanced MCACC, the Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration System, for the best audio experience possible. It's a performance no other receiver in the world can follow. The Pioneer® Elite® SC-07 A/V receiver boasts 140 Watts of power. Designed around a revolutionary ICEpower® Class D amplifier, the Elite SC-07 A/V delivers best in class multi-channel sound. Built from the ground up for High-Definition surround sound, the SC-07 boasts 7 channels of surround sound, AIR StudiosTM certification and Direct Energy amplification, allowing the SC-07 to operate at powerful levels with extremely low distortion and virtually no wasted energy. The result is enormous headroom and extraordinary detail, resulting in audio depth and richness that is truly breathtaking. The SC-07 was designed to serve as the heart of the most complex of systems-to create a truly seamless experience. Four HDMI® inputs provide the highest quality connections for a full range of state of the art playback. The Faroudja® 1080p Video Scaler upscales video regardless of format, for exceptional picture quality. The SC-07 also features a Burr-BrownTM 8-channel Sampling Rate Converter for jitter reduction in all audio formats, as well as Wolfson digital to analog converters for full 192 khz audio performance.

The result is just breath taking sight and sound.

In fact it is so good in upscaling I don't buy Blu-ray discs and seldom use my extremely good Oppo Blu-ray player.

PLEASE forego the big-box stores and spend a little extra!

I recently purchased the Pioneer Elite SC-07 receiver. It replaced my old Elite VSX-72TXV receiver. Along with the receiver, I purchased the Polk RTi A7 front speakers, CSi A6 center channel, FXi A4 surrounds and DSW Pro 500 subwoofer. I have the Kuro Elite PRO-111FD display to compliment the set up. The result is just breath taking sight and sound.

When you first turn on the receiver without any calibration, you can hear and feel the raw power. After the full automated calibration and some manual minor fine tunings, I couldn't be happier. The first thing you'll notice is the clean, powerful yet natural sound output the receiver has to offer. If you're not into manual calibration, let the receiver do the full auto calibration. That'll make a world of difference. All of the video components are connected via HDMI, so I can't really comment on the performance of the Faroudja upconverting chipset. Just like the former Elite receivers, SC-07 comes with ipod connection (a USB port instead of a cable this time around). The GUI is much easier to use compared to Denon receivers. I like the fact that the menus are straight forward enough to navigate through the settings easily without referring to the manual every single time.

Initially, I was going to wait for SC-27 to come out. Then again, the major difference between the two are color GUI with the ability to show the album art work on the ipod and a different upconverting chip. Personally, I don't care about the extra bells and whistles. Amazon (3rd party retailers) probably have the best pricing I've seen so far. I have no regrets and I'm looking forward to enjoying it for quite some time.

I've owned this bad-boy for almost a year now; I've been waiting until I was completely confident in my opinion before posting a review.

The features and sound quality of this receiver are nothing shy of amazing. My wife and I use the "home media gallery" feature on a weekly basis to listen to neural THX 80's music while we're cleaning the house. I just recently upgraded my speaker system to 7.1 from 5.1 and I'm absolutely amazed. (I was using the same old speakers I was using with my old 5.1 Onkyo receiver, and the improvment in clarity & detail was astonishing.... moving to a 7.1 setup is just as impressive.)

I have no idea how to explain how I feel every time I pop in a BluRay, Xbox 360 game, or watch a HD movie on cable.... After nearly a year, I still cannot belive I own this masterpiece. I still thank the ultimate sales guy in Colorado on a regular basis for convincing me to NOT settle for anything less. [ Mike, you're the man! ] (Almost as awesome as the folks at Pioneer for creating such a fine piece of A/V equipment.)

Because of a massive parts failure of my two month old AdCom, which cost thousands more, I purchased Pioneer Elite as I am familiar with their reputation. I have been into high end audio and video for a long time. I was blown away by the quality of the Pioneer SC-07. The upscaling is phenomenal, better than units costing thousands more. In fact it is so good in upscaling I don't buy Blu-ray discs and seldom use my extremely good Oppo Blu-ray player. The Advanced MCACC, Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration System, is a rapid fire way to properly set up any speaker configuration while making allowances for speaker and room acoustics. While one receiver may be good at video and another at audio, the Pioneer SC-07 beats them all at what they think they do best. It is truly a benchmark receiver.
The seller was other than Amazon but proved to be worthy of operating under their cloak. They actually got the receiver to me early and packaged properly for handling by untrained gorillas.

This is my third piece of Pioneer Elite equipment - ties together my Kuro Plasma and Elite Blu-Ray player. Adding a complete 7.1 system with floor Klips and ceiling/sub MartinLogins put this receive to the test. What a great sound field, with virtually unlimited choices of effects. The built in setup program was easy to follow and resulted in startling room acoustics with all speaker adjustments preformed by the SC-07, including sequencing, distance from the target position, equalizing and volume variables. Once these were locked into the receiver the fun began, start playing with the output effects until you find ones perfect for tv, DVD, BD, sports, music, etc. Couldn't be more pleased and after several months it only seems to get better.

After several months of searching I selected the Pioneer SC 07 over the Denon lineup (3808, 3810, 4310 etc). Also looked at Yamaha, Onyko, Marantz and Sony. The setup was quick, easy and accurate. The audio is outstanding for both movies and music. The sub woofer interface is smooth and overall sound is impressive at all volume levels. Movie dialogue is outstanding for clarity. The unit runs without building up heat. Initial setup is easy and provides excellent results. Going through the manual (very complete with good detail) allows you customize features with a large number of options that will result in sound reproduction that far surpasses most movie theaters. Once connected to the internet (I use a Belkin powerline router) the selection of internet stations and music quality is excellent. There has been criticism that a wireless connection was not built in but the reliability of the wired connection is more stable with no interference. Strongly recommend the SC 05/07 or SC 25/27 products - they deliver outstanding results at a moderate price.
