The Pioneer VSX-LX302 review shows a solid high-quality 7-channel AV with the nice total power of 900W and up to 140W per channel. It’s a junior model in the top series Pioneer LX with the plethora of patented techs and options. The device is noted for its ability to customize the display outputs, set up via network cable or Wi-Fi, and to update its firmware. It’s compatible with Dolby Vision and provides the Ultra HD reproduction.
Its classical design is styled in other brand’s models. There is no foldaway cover on the front panel as the top models have. However, there all the necessary port are there – HDMI inputs, USB, Mini Stereo Jack, the port for the MCACC mic, and the phono output.
The system’s 7 HDMI inputs and 4K support provide the great home cinema performance. The 4K pass-through up-converts any systems – XBox One X, PS4Pro, etc. You can watch Netflix in 4K and HDR mode, as well as YouTube videos and Amazon Prime movies. The AV operates without heating for several hours without a break. The device works with a low power consumption due to the Energy Direct tech that helps to save the electricity.
The sound is rich but it may seem to be muffled by too much bass at first. However, everything is ok after you’ve balanced the tone for bass and treble in order to fiddle with the bass to your preferences. One of the Pioneer VSX-LX302 specs is the variety of listening modes (Stereo, Mono, Pure Direct, Pure, and Different Surround) makes sound customized according to certain music or film. To make the sound out of this world connecting the great-quality speakers are highly recommended.
It is possible to hook up any systems such as a Blu-ray player, AM/FM antenna or a game platform. There is a special input to connect the turntable for enjoyable vinyl listening. The AV allows adding extra speakers for making a complete 7.1.2 Atmos system.
The tuner is easy to set up, but it takes some time to set up the speaker balance and tones. The on-screen TV setup with mic calibration is easy. There is no need to choose between 7.2 and 5.2.2 because other receivers use the same outputs use the same outputs for the height and rear surround. It is possible to set up 9 different speakers.
The full set of features and techs make Pioneer VSX-LX302 desirable for audiophiles and its affordable price let the average users get the new listening experience as well. The flexibility of settings and connections allow using a wide range of devices that make needless to waste time for looking the rare or expensive models.
