This included cable also works with most generations of iPod Classic, Nano, and iPod touch.

Plus, your iPhone device’s music will always sound its best thanks to Pioneer’s exclusive Advanced Sound Retriever technology, which restores lost data in compressed music files.

And Auto Level Control means a smooth, consistent listening experience with no jarring volume changes between your favorite songs and albums.

Pioneer Elite Icontrol

The iPhone and iPod touch’s accelerometer are used to control balance, bass and dialogue–no confusing sequence of remote buttons to remember, just tilt and maneuver your Apple portable device until the sound is right where you want it.

Where Maximum Fidelity Meets Connectivity

Access Your Portable Devices, Internet Radio, and Stream Your Digital Content with Home Media Gallery
In addition to connections for all your home theater components, a front HDMI input lets you conveniently connect high-definition devices like an HD camcorder to view your videos in all their glory in your home theater. A front USB port lets you connect your digital camera or portable media player to display a slideshow of JPEG photos on your HDTV, or play MP3, WAV, or WMA music files with full ID3 tag and album art support. Elite receivers will display up to 32 album art thumbnails on your TV, and you can scroll through them with the included remote. And your options don’t stop with your portable devices. When connected to your home network, Pioneer Elite Receivers are your portal for thousands of Internet radio stations — all just a few clicks of the remote away.

Home Media Gallery allows you to stream your network-connected content with DLNA 1.5 support.
Enjoy Rhapsody® or Sirius® Radio, stream MP3s and photos from your PC or a network-attached hard drive, and more–and you can even send it to a second zone.

Full-Color On-Screen GUI and PC Web Browser Control
There are more ways to control your Pioneer Elite Receivers than just your iPhone. There’s a full-color on-screen GUI for use with the included preset learning LCD RF remote, so you can make guided adjustments to your home theater sound. Not only that, but the SC-37 lets you connect a USB keyboard so you can rename stations for radio and Internet radio, network settings, and more. For further control, the SC-37 includes PC control software, so you can control your home theater right from your PC or laptop.

Release Your Smartphone’s Music with the AS-BT100 Bluetooth Adapter (sold separately)
For wireless connectivity, add a Pioneer AS-BT100 Bluetooth adapter (sold separately) to release your music from your iPhone, iPad®, Blackberry®, or Android® smartphone as well as other Bluetooth-enabled sources like laptops. And Pioneer Elite Receivers Advanced Sound Retriever AIR technology restores critical audio data that is often removed from compressed audio formats, especially when transferred via Bluetooth.

How Pioneer’s Technology Delivers the Ultimate Home Theater Experience

The Latest HDMI Technology Gets You Ready for 3-D
All of Pioneer’s latest receivers support the latest HDMI 1.4a specification, meaning that you’re not just getting the most out of your existing movies and music, you’re preparing for the next generation of 3-D video content with the Pioneer Elite Receivers. And with multiple HDMI inputs, including 1 on the front panel, plus 2 HDMI outputs, you’ve got more than enough connectivity options for the growing number of high-definition sources available today. And newer Pioneer Elite Receivers support for HDMI 1.4a’s Audio Return Channel (ARC) means fewer cables needed for connecting to your home theater.

Pioneer’s Advanced Video Processing
Pioneer has long been the leader in video processing and combining. Pioneer Elite Receivers benefits even further with Marvell’s advanced Qdeo video processing, which lets you upscale your picture to digital 1080p/24fps from virtually any source, including analog.

ICEpower Class D Amplification and AIR Studios Certification
The first and only THX Ultra- and Select 2 Plus-certified Class D multi-channel amplifiers, ICE-Power’s direct energy amplifier design yields quick-response dynamic output that’s incredibly stable during multi-channel performance, all while remaining energy-efficient and cooler-running

Pioneer Elite Receivers has also benefited from Pioneer’s collaboration with the famous AIR Studios in London, where it was evaluated and modified at a prototype level to meet the very strict standards set forth by studio engineers. The trained ears at AIR Studios know first-hand what goes into an artist’s craft and their objective is perfectly in-line with that of Pioneer: to accurately reproduce in the home theater what the artist originally created in the studio.

True-to-Life, High-Definition Audio with Dolby Pro Logic IIz and THX Ultra 2 Plus
Of course all the latest Pioneer receivers support high-definition audio formats like Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD® Master Audio to give your Blu-ray Disc® movies a soundtrack that’s true-to-life. But Pioneer Elite Receivers add an extra dimension with support for Dolby Pro Logic IIz and THX Ultra 2 Plus certification for the ultimate immersive experience.

Near Studio-quality Sound with Advanced MCACC
Pioneer’s exclusive Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration system (MCACC) provides a near studio-quality, multi-channel listening experience that customizes each of the Pioneer Elite Receivers 7.1 sound channels specifically to your listening environment.

Additionally, the Auto Level Control feature can equalize volume level differences between tracks playing from a portable audio device or commercials during television programming so the volume can be enjoyed at a consistent level–no more jarring “blare” when switching audio sources.

All of these technologies come together in the Pioneer Elite Receivers to deliver an unprecedented level of control and sophistication for the serious home entertainment enthusiast.
