Defy the limits of Home Cinema

The SC-LX85 has it all, including selected audiophile enhancements, and you can use the included RF Remote to control all functions, even without the receiver being in your line-of-sight.

Besides a state-of-the-art class D amplifier that provides 9.2 surround sound in HD, a digital connection with your iPod, iPhone or iPad without dock, you get easy-to-operate worldwide internet radio (vTuner) and network streaming via DLNA (Windows 7 compatible) or Apple Airplay when you connect via LAN. LPCM, WAV, FLAC and other lossless formats are supported.

Compatible (free) smartphone/tablet apps include the advanced remote control app iControlAV2 and Air Jam, a Bluetooth-based social app.



The SC-LX85 has 9 HD inputs including 7x HDMI In/ 2 HDMI Out and ships with a 3 Year Warranty


Intelligent speaker calibration

Surround speakers can hardly be ideally positioned. MCACC therefore analyses the existing sound field using a microphone (included), just like a sound professional, and adjusts the sound timings to precision-tune the system to your room

Digital Direct connection with your iPod, iPhone or iPad

No need for a dock – you can plug your Apple device directly in the receiver. Thanks to the digital connection, you get the best possible audio quality (further enhanced by the Advanced Sound Retriever). Furthermore you can view photos and videos on, and stream apps like YouTube to your TV

Stream with AirPlay

Apple's AirPlay lets you wirelessly stream music from any compatible device. This means you can easily enjoy your iTunes music library through your AV receiver


Stream with DLNA

DLNA is now widely supported on PCs, laptops, smartphones and other devices. This receiver being DLNA certified, you can easily stream audio from such a device using your home network

The remote of the future

iControlAV2 is our 2nd-generation app that lets you control all important receiver functions from your smartphone or tablet. Control playback, select an input, adjust listening modes and change sound balance and emphasis from one app. iOS + Android


Music listening made social

Air Jam is a Bluetooth-based app that lets a group of people connect with their iPhones, iPod Touch or iPads and add their songs to the receiver playlist. Participants can see which song was, is or will be playing – a great way to share and discover tunes. Requires iOS 4.2 with iPhone 4/3GS/3G, iPad or iPod touch (2nd gen. or higher)


Less jitter, better audio

Transmission via HDMI can cause clock jitter, causing sound distortion during the D/A conversion. PQLS “speed synchronises” the digital audio data between the receiver and your Blu-ray player, reducing the jitter. The result is clear, rich and precise audio

Image optimised for you

Advanced Video Adjust optimises the video signal according to your type of screen or projector. Based on MCACC calibration data, it also adjusts image quality to your distance from the screen


Intuitive setup and operation

AVNavigator software makes installing a breeze. Wiring Navi automatically calibrates your receiver to your personal setup including speakers and other devices, while the interactive manual lets you intuitively explore every feature. AVNavigator is included on a CD-ROM and is also available as a free iPad app


Using Bluetooth audio streaming (additional AS-BT200 adaptor required) you can leave your iPod touch/iPhone/iPad or smartphone anywhere in the room or even carry it with you, while still enjoying your music. Also, you can stream directly from your PC.

The Sound Retriever AIR will restore sound quality lost during streaming.


With your local area network, you can even use your iPhone/iPod touch/iPad as a remote control thanks to our iControlAV home entertainment application. Watch a video demonstration of iControlAV.

HD audio formats are internally decoded for a supreme viewing experience.


Analogue sources are upscaled to an HDMI signal with up to 1080p (HD) resolution. HDMI v1.4a provides even more high definition connectivity options for compatibility with the latest video formats including 3D formats.

When connected to a Blu-ray player via HDMI, the SC-LX85 uses our proprietary PQLS technology for a jitterless transmission, resulting in high-quality sound.


iPod/iPhone/iPad compatible

A digital iPod USB connection provides direct plug-and-play enjoyment of anything on your iPod, iPad or iPhone. The digital connection guarantees transfer without A/D conversion, for minimal quality loss. The Advanced Sound Retriever will greatly improve the sound quality of compressed audio.


Also, view your favourite photos and videos on screen, direcly from your iPhone/iPod touch/iPad


You can also use Bluetooth audio streaming (additional AS-BT200 adaptor required) to enjoy music from an iPhone/ipod touch, smartphone or PC.

Audio Features:

  • Auto Level Control - Auto Level Control compensates for volume fluctuations between songs or sources, ensuring that what you hear is played back at a constant volume.
  • Digital Noise Reduction - New noise reduction technology keeps sound pristine as it comes from each source. Digital filtering analyses signal output from each separate frequency band, then attenuates noise in each band to an optimal level. In this way, only signal band noise that detracts from overall sound is suppressed, without degrading any dynamic characteristics of the original sound.
  • Front Stage Surround Advance - By simply placing your speakers directly beside your TV screen and activating the unique Front Stage Surround Advance feature, you can experience a virtual surround sound environment
  • Loudness - this mode boosts the bass and treble in a signal. It is useful for listening to music at low volumes
  • Midnight Listening Mode - If others are sleeping or studying, trying to enjoy a program quietly shouldn't compromise such sound qualities as surround effects or dialogue clarity
  • Phase Control - feature corrects the phase distortion as well as group delay for LFE (Low-Frequency Effects) audio signals during multi-channel playback
  • PQLS (2 Channel) - A precision quartz controller eliminates distortion caused by timing errors (jitter), giving you the best possible digital-to-analogue conversion from audio CD sources when you use the HDMI interface. This is valid as an HDMI function for PQLS-compatible players.
  • Advanced Sound Retreiver - function enhances compressed music formats, such as MP3, WMA or AAC and restores the music dynamics and harmonics to CD-sound quality
  • Sound Retreiver AIR - When audio is streamed using Bluetooth, sound quality is lost during transmission. Our Sound Retriever AIR brings back the original audio quality.
  • Standing Wave Contrlol - Standing Waves are an unwanted phenomenon that occur in most rooms. These acoustic waves create peaks in the low frequencies, resulting in a booming sound. Our Standing Wave Control neutralises this effect, by causing a flatter frequency response, while respecting the phase differences between each channel. Since more filters are utilised in the lower bandwidths, up to 3 standing waves can be more precisely identified and reduced. The result is a far better reproduction of lower frequencies.
  • Multi-Zone Function (3 Zones)
  • Virtual Surround Back - The Virtual Surround Back feature enables you to experience 6.1 or 7.1 surround sound with a 5.1 speaker set-up. Once activated, the left and right rear satellite speakers will create a phantom sound source behind you. It will sound as if there are actual speakers behind you.

Virtual Height/Depth

X-Curve - The X-Curve setting adjusts the tonal balance of your speaker system for film soundtracks. Most soundtracks mixed for cinema sound too shrill or harsh when played back in your living room. The X-Curve setting acts as a re-equalization for home theatre listening, restoring proper tonal balance of movie soundtracks.
