Default Pioneer Elite VSX-LX805 Flagship A/V receiver (top of the line for the year 2023)

On March 14th 2023 it was announced that Pioneer is coming out with a new flagship A/V receiver for the year 2023 (I was aware of this information on 3-14-2023, but I was busy with another project and I am posting the information a day late).

The new flagship Pioneer Elite VSX-LX805 is scheduled to ship in the Spring of 2023 with a list price of $2,999. This new A/V receiver has 11.4 channels (four subwoofers can be connected) with a promised future firmware update in June with Auro 3D support (Therefore all 3 lossless audio formats supported, Dolby Atmos, DTS X, and Auro 3D (However no DTS X Pro support from a Pioneer A/V receiver yet). Plus another firmware update in September to add Room Ready certification. This Pioneer A/V receiver will not only support Auro 3D audio with a future firmware update, but also offers HDR10+ and Dolby Vision HDR passthrough on the HDMI ports (6 out of the 7 HDMI ports support 8K resolution).

The following are select quotes from the Sound and Vision magazine article

“The receiver promises audiophile-quality music and immersive surround processing for movie soundtracks through Dolby Atmos (with Dolby Atmos height virtualization), DTS:X, and an IMAX Enhanced mode. Auro3D immersive processing is promised for June via a firmware update and Roon Ready certification will be added via a second update in September.”

“As you might imagine, the list of features is exhaustive and includes support for Dolby Vision and HDR10+ high dynamic range (HDR), HDMI 2.1/HDCP 2.3, 4K and 8K resolution, and speeds up to 40Gbps for fast refresh rates with the newest gaming consoles, including the Xbox Series X.”

“Connectivity options are plentiful with seven eARC-compatible HDMI inputs, six of which will pass 8K, three HDMI outputs, three optical and two coaxial digital inputs, four analog RCA inputs, one phono input, two balanced XLR inputs and outputs for high-performance stereo listening, Zone 2 and Zone 3 stereo outputs, and more. There are also RCA preamp outputs for all channels.”
